Easy to use; great motivator!


Love this app! Can use it for just walking around the house to track steps per day and calories burned, or set it up for a workout with gps so I can see an accurate distance/time/speed walked. (It doesn’t eat up my data for this either!) It’s amazing to look at total distance walked since I first started using the app til now (Dec. 2016-Feb. 2018) and see that I’ve racked up over 1,450 MILES (and well over 3.2 MILLION steps! :)
When I first got the app, I had a very old phone that I couldn’t update, and Pacer was the ONLY pedometer app I could find that would work on it. I would, very rarely, have it crash and lose that day’s data- very frustrating, but otherwise loved it, and grateful I had it.
Since updating to a new phone (and version of the Pacer app), I haven’t experienced ANY crashing!
Thank you, Pacer, for creating a wonderful, stable app! It’s been a big part of my weight loss and fitness efforts, and I will gladly credit you for motivation in helping me lose about 30 lbs.! (Just 10 lbs. left to go!) ;)

Great with iphone 6, but don't use with iPhone 4 or 5

I love this app and use it on my iPhone 6 to track all my steps to improve my health. But when I got one of the regular app upgrades on my iPhone 4S it periodically stopped working while I was walking. I walk more than 1,500 steps but the count didn't change at all. It got a little better when I shut down the badges and all other notifications, but it still locked up on the count at least once a day.
After deleting this from my iPhone 4s I got a new iPhone 6 a couple months later. After reading some other reviews about the issues with 4s specifically, I decided to try it again on the new phone. Glad I did because it works much better on the 6. Still upset that the software developers left the 4s for dead, or else I would give it 5 stars.

I’m in love!!!


Today was my first official day of walking and I couldn’t be happier! I searched through many apps trying to find one that I liked and didn’t have any success until I found this one! I finally talked myself into walking (after internally battling with myself for about 30 minutes) and I feel awesome. The only thing that I can complain about is that the map is a little off. It shows that I walked through houses instead of on the road (if I could show you, I would but I can’t upload pictures onto here obviously). Besides the map issue, I like everything. The amount of things I can do without a subscription is perfect for a beginner like me. I would definitely recommend this app to others!
