Use your iPhone as a step counter. Pedometer++ lets you easily keep track of your daily and weekly step counts, without any impact on your battery life. You can view your progress each day from either the iPhone app, Today View widget or Apple Watch app.
You can also set the app to dynamically show your current step count as the applications badge. This will update dynamically throughout the day.
iMore.com's iOS Health & Fitness App of the Year.
** Requires an iPhone 5s or newer **
For best results make sure that you keep your iPhone on you as you move throughout the day, ideally in a trouser pocket close to your hips.
Pedometer++ integrates with the Health app in order to collect and display data collected by your Apple Watch. It can display your step count, walking distance, active calories and heart rate data.
What's New in Version 2.5.2
This update is geared around trying to tidy up a lot of loose ends and fixing lingering bugs. It includes:
- Fix a bug that caused old data to change (note: you may see a one time adjustment the first time you run the new update)
- Fix a bug that prevented the graph from re-centering onto the current week
- Update the icon to be a cleaner and clearer
- Add a warning when switching to Wheelchair Mode but your Apple Watch isn't in wheelchair mode
- Add the ability (in the Settings area) to switch the app's icon to one more appropriate for Wheelchair Mode when active
- Change the layout of the Apple Watch app to make it harder to accidentally start a walk.
If you see anything else please let me know, I'm working on a pretty big update next and want everything to be nice and stable before that rolls out.
I've tried a lot of pedometer apps for running, walking, and general step-counting. This is by far my favorite and the only one I really need.
What I most appreciate is that it omits a lot of the fancy options and power features of some of the competition. It counts steps and floors, total steps since starting the app, and the number of consecutive days you've met your defined goal. Reach your goal, and you're rewarded with a confetti shower. There's a bar chart of your progress, color coded for each day by whether you reach your goal, or get at least hallway there.
Having had questions and one bug report, I can say the developer is quick to respond and fix problems. Though the simple design means there rarely are problems!
Unlike many such apps, you won't need an account. So far as I can tell, the developer doesn't collect tracking data on users. Nor are you bugged to upgrade to a paid version. The settings screen does provide a "tip" option that incidentally gets rid of the inconspicuous ads. I've gratefully tipped the author, more than once, not because I minded the ads (I didn't), but because this app has just been so extraordinarily useful to me. I HIGHLY recommend this utility!
Floors vs Elevation
I am very fond of your app. Thought I would put my two cents in maybe it will help. Like many active people I like the outdoors I walk and hike often depending on the time I have available and whether. A few things I've noticed when walking with somebody shorter than I ( I'm about 6'0" my partner is 5'6"). When walking side by side her app always reads a bit further than mind, further we walk the greater the spread in distant. Knowing the app is counting by steps this is expected. I'm ok with that still feel as though that is reasonably accurate. Here is what is on my mind. Rather than the app counting elevation in floors why not count elevation in feet. When we hike up and down a grade such as to the river or canyon I feel it would be more satisfying to see the app count elevation we walked in feet. Thank Rex
App great - work on time zones, please
Your app is great and I have a real sense of accomplishment when I see the confetti on making my 10k step goal. The only request I have relates to time zones. I live on the eat coast and visited Texas recently. I was very surprised when my step count was reduced for one day when I returned to the east coast. I believe it because many steps were after 11:00 standard time and were recalculated for eastern time when I returned. I would have thought steps in a 24 hour period would stay in that period.
As I said, I love the app and will certainly keep using it. Thanks.
