Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
To track your activity in the background on the iPhone 4, 4S, 5 and 5c, Steps keeps track of your location. We've gone to great lengths to minimize battery use and make sure your charge still lasts all day, but there's no getting around some impact on your battery.
*** A note on location ***
Steps needs access to your location in order to track how far you walk in the background. If Steps doesn't update while it's in the background, please open the Settings app and go to Privacy -> Location Services. Make sure that you have enabled Location Services for Steps -- this should resolve the issue. Thanks!
Bug fixes, including a fix for widget updating.
Ratings and Reviews
This application kind of picks and chooses when it wants to work properly. I just waved my phone by accident if you times trying to shake a piece of hair off of my hand and it recorded eight steps. So I know this is incorrect. I don't really use pedometers to measure any kind of caloric or distance related data, I really just use it to make sure I'm at least somewhat active during my mostly sedentary job Monday through Friday. You have to really be disciplined with this app as with all pedometer apps, and have your phone on you constantly, which I do not always do. To get an accurate measure you have to walk with your phone even to the bathroom in your own house. So it would be better to have some kind of wearable pedometer like the old-school ones, or the new school, expensive models like a fit bit or something ridiculously overpriced like that. I would not recommend this as any kind of professional cool if you're considering serious weight loss or serious athletic fitness changes.
Does not count imaginary "steps" while I'm driving! Very accurate. No delay in seeing steps update like other apps. Seems to take little battery even when running in background. I have it noticed ANY drain. Can also see history by day by swiping up. I didn't buy the calories upgrade. I just want to see my steps and it is there in bold numbers without any delay or hesitation whatsoever. Also runs the clock only while you are walking, unlike other apps, so you can get a true picture of how long you ACTUALLY walked. Also shows your steps goal you set & % of goal completed. Shows distance. Nice surprise was it sent me a notification congratulating me on % of steps previous day even tho I didn't meet my goal. It was encouraging!
Simple, pretty, and functional
This app does what it says it does and does it well. Runs smoothly and has a fairly accurate step count. And it doesn't need a newer phone to work! Perhaps the biggest plus for me is that it DOES NOT automatically count calories (although that is n option). It's hard to find a nice pedometer that doesn't force you to count calories and I don't want that. I only have four stars because it does drain my battery a bit faster than I'd like, and because the sunrise animation doesn't run very smoothly - when you update your step count the background snaps to whatever percentage you've reached instead of a smooth animation. But overall, I like it and plan to keep using it!
