StepTracker turns your iPhone into a pedometer and a fitness tracking device by counting the number of steps you take each day. By monitoring at your step count you can get an idea of how active you have been and learn how to live a more healthy lifestyle.
Unlike conventional pedometer apps, StepTracker doesn't need to be running in the background to count your steps. Your motion data is automatically collected by Apple's new M7 motion co-processor in the iPhone 5S. This allows your step count to be monitored even when the app is not running, all without using a significant amount of battery power. StepTracker brings this information to you in a simple and easy to understand way. Simply select the day you are interested in and StepTracker will tell you how many steps you have taken, along with a measure of how much time you have spent active vs. inactive.
Features of StepTracker include:
•View your complete step count history. Even if you have never installed this app before, you will be able to see your step counts for the last 7 days.
•Add text comments to your step count data to remind yourself why you were more or less active on a given day.
•Export all of your data via email or text message.
•View your step count or distance travelled in miles or km by tapping the step count on the main screen.
•Turn your phone sideways to view your step count as a graph!
•Share your step count via email, text, Facebook or Twitter with your friends.
•Set a daily goal and see how close you have come to achieving it.
•Display your or step count on the app icon.
•Background app refresh support. You don't even need to open StepTracker to see how many steps you have taken today, the app icon will automatically update to show you your step count on an icon badge.
•Game Center support - see how many steps other users have taken via GameCenter or challenge a friend do a step count competition!
•Notification Center Widget - Now you can add a widget to show your current steps and current distance right in Notification Center! To install, pull down Notification Center from the top of the screen, click on "today", scroll to the bottom and click "edit" and install StepTracker.
StepTracker is iAd supported, but you can disable the ads though an in-app purchase.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve only just recently downloaded and began using this app as I just switched from Samsung phones to my very first IPhone and I absolutely LOVE this app already!! VERY ACCURATE on step counts and also very well at prompting me to step it up a little more and reach my daily goals!! I would recommend this app to anyone!! And a 5 sec vid-ad isn’t all that bad in my eyes either!! But there are ALWAYS those negative Nancy’s out there!! Don’t pay them no mind!! This app is AMAZING and I will be a lifelong user of this app from here on out so thanks for taking the time to create such a wonderful and accurate app!!
autoplay video ads with sound
update: despite developer response i checked and still auto plays vid-ads with sound; Apple's Health app does what i need and keeps a better history
original review: i have used this app for years; it's a little funky — sometimes loses track of step count from a few days ago, and it recently started forcing ads into the experience; i was considering paying up to get rid of the ads, because on the whole it was all i needed — UNTIL it auto-played a video ad with sound — this is really unacceptable and so instead of paying to get rid of the ads i'm deleting the app and trying some others
Developer Response ,
I'm sorry about the ads. When Apple discontinued the iAd platform I let the app go ad free for nearly a year but decided to switch to Google's AdMob network so that I could start making some money again. There are no ad options out there as good as iAd and I decided the full screen ad was better than having a banner take up screen real estate. I didn't know that ads played with sound by default (in my testing I hadn't noticed that). I will look into it. If you want to contact me via email we can discuss the other bugs which I have not seen in my testing (and I use my app daily myself).
Good App, but Needs One Improvement
Only the current week can be viewed in portrait mode. My instinct is to swipe left to right to see previous weeks' steps.
Developer Response ,
