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.
Made by Six to Start, co-creators of the world’s bestselling smartphone fitness game with over a million players, Zombies, Run!

A CAVALCADE OF CUTE COMPANIONS
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.
OPTIMISED FOR IPHONE 5S, 6 & 6 Plus
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.
What's New in Version 1.1
Bug fixes for iOS 9 users
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!
A cute app, but no Health integration
Definitely a cute pedometer if you carry your phone everywhere, but doesn't pull data from existing Health app step tracking (which syncs with the Apple Watch and other fitness trackers). Since I don't tend to carry my phone everywhere, the utility and playability are vastly reduced. :(
Cute lightweight game of walking
Between this, Walkr, FitBit, and Pokemon Go, I have lots of reasons to get in a few extra steps each day!
