Once you Step, you just can’t stop!

Normal pedometers count your steps. Step Buy Step is different. Each step you take in the real world earns you Stepps.

Walk ten steps and buy a Dog. Your canine companion adds an extra 4 Stepps to each of your own steps! Get 100 Stepps and it’s time to buy a Flock of Sheep. Now you’re really cooking: 40 Stepps per step and you’re covering 100 yards with every fall of your feet.

Buy over 40 creature companions who'll join you on a journey around the world and beyond! Want to know what it’s like to cross an entire country with a single stride? We can show you: Step Buy Step.

"Decidedly cute and fun... makes checking out your pedometer more entertaining" - Lifehacker

From a canine compatriot to a helpful hedgehog, Step Buy Step includes dozens of animals who will help you complete your challenges. Every animal increases how many Stepps you earn for each step you take, and you’ll need every Stepp you can get if you’re going to win your wager with Phileas Fogg himself!

Step Buy Step lives up to its name: it’ll track every step you take, letting you see just how far you walk every day. But this isn’t just some stuffy statistics tracker. This is a pedometer adventure game! With our moreish upgrade system, every step will take you further than the last, until a single step will cover miles.

Got the iPhone 5s, 6, or 6 Plus? Then you’ll love Step Buy Step — we use the M7 and M8 to count your steps even more accurately and with even less battery usage.

- Requires iOS 7
- Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Step Buy Step uses your phone’s accelerometer to measure your movement, and primarily uses wifi and cell towers to track location. We also use GPS sparingly when for tracking your walking routes.

To start, I really enjoyed the visuals of this app. The animals and backgrounds were drawn beautifully. My issues with this app are because of the lack of interaction, for lack of a better term. There’s a few pages of story before each step challenge, but after that there’s nothing. The animals don’t look like they’re walking with you, more like hopping in place. When you get more animals than can fit on the bottom of the screen it just pushes the oldest animals offscreen. There isn’t any music and the backdrop, while able to be scrolled to see more, is available in very short increments. This app seems like a great foundation of something like Run, Zombies!, but for now it’s just incredibly boring and does very little with regards to motivation.

Simple but fun and cute pedometer!


This is pretty straightforward and simple app to encourage kids, kawaii fans or creative people (etc.) to take an interest in walking more as it rewards exercise with cute rewards, virtual retail therapy or fun text dialogs. It was a nice touch to add history and challenges to draw out the apps usefulness after the companion collecting.

Sadly, it's also VERY simple to finish and I would like to see more levels, different challenges or creativity but really enjoyed "playing" the game.

I would absolutely love to see improvements in terms of being able to restart without going through all the text. The multiplier after finishing the game needs to carry through after the third game. After a few rounds, there really isn't much incentive to keep restarting the game at the absolute beginning again.

Thanks for offering this, love the Zombies! line too but this was a nice, low key/stress, cute addition!

Makes it fun to get those steps in


I enjoy the ease of using this app, it's a fun game and has motivated me to get more steps in per day. I like the illustrations and that all in app purchases are earned just by walking more. It also can encourage math skills practice as one sees how to add more steps per step to meet each challenge. Great for all ages!
