Great App
I love this app and I would have given it a full 5 stars except that it seems to take time to fully record your steps and distance. For example when you get done with your walk the total steps shown is not the final tally. It will eventually record the correct steps and distance but not in “real time”. Still a wonderful step app comparable to Fitbit (except I think better!). …”update” still love this app but with each update my Apple Watch series one crashes the app, on the watch only. If I want to track my steps I need to check them on the phone as the app doesn’t display as it did previously on my watch. I guess if a new Apple Watch didn’t cost a zillion dollars I would buy one but my current Watch works just fine. Still love this app. “UPDATE” This is my fav pedometer and the folks behind it try really hard to make it work for every Apple Watch user. Their last update crashed the app on my watch again but after I reported it to them they began to work on a fix. After a number of weeks I’d given up hope that it would ever work with my series one watch but behind the scenes they continues working on it and one day I get a message that they may have found a solution…so I updated and BAM it works again. I love this app and the folks behind the app. Most app support folks might have given up but they didn’t and their communication is exemplary…I bumped up my stars from 4 to the 5 they deserve!!!

Helps keep me motivated
I have an office job so I’m sitting at a desk all day. After the new year I really wanted a change and began to do daily steps where I would walk in place at my desk for an hour and 40 minutes. I eventually looked in the App Store for a step counter and this was the first one that popped up for me with the highest rated reviews. I absolutely love it and ended up purchasing it for the entire year once my free week trial was over. It helps keep me organized and counts my steps pretty accurately. It’s begun to give me little notifications of “almost reached half your goal!” “Almost there!” “So close to reaching your daily goal!” And they actually make me happy to see those simple little notifications because it means I’m making a change in my daily health. I have it set for 10,000 steps a day and it’s so easy to change your daily goal and even has a cute blue circle that moves as you walk. Once it’s full and you reach your goal it has a nice “sparkly” look to it for a moment and you feel good about reaching your goal. It’s very organized and easy to read and has a charts graph for every day so you can see how well you did each day for the week. I’m someone who doesn’t have an Apple Watch so this app is really great to have on my phone. I highly recommend it to anyone else who is wanting something organized to keep track of your daily movement

Next Man Steps Up
When your numbers called, it takes guts, it takes courage, it takes thought, and it takes dedication to step up. It’s a mental process involving choice, challenge, and often times risk. what do all these have in common? The answer is time! “ It will all be over soon”, shruggingly the- next-man-up whispered. “Focus. All you have to do is focus”, The brave young rookie loudly yelled to himself. With this app, you are able to “sleep while you fly“. it does it for you. I get this deep into these metaphors or symbolic ways of mental landmarks to do with the fact that we take for granted exercise. But this have never does take for granted the time it takes to step forward and become the next man up. And at the end of your day, you may have forgotten, but this app does not, and it shows you how awesome your work was. and every day becomes more addictive. My name is Micka and I’m addicted to this app and I would like to say thank you to all involved for making every day very special. For making me the next man up whether I like it or not. I rest courageous no matter what my day was filled with. I write this because I just was informed over 12,000 steps today and it’s not even 11 PM and I woke up at around 2 PM. Yes I’m courageous. But I had to be reminded of it. Thanks guys Sincerely, “ next man steps up“ Micka «» New Orleans

I love this simple and beautiful app!
I really love this app- easy to use, simple, and very well designed! I love the different views- daily, weekly, monthly - makes it easy to track my progress across a long period of time, and helps motivate me to do more. Since downloading this app I've used it everyday. The best part is I don't have to "turn it on" to use it- it just starts recording steps on its own. I always have my phone with me anyway, so tracking my steps with my phone is an added benefit- and made very easy and intuitive with the StepsApp!! **Update** I've been using this app for 7 weeks now and I still LOVE it!! Seeing my number of steps each day makes me want to push myself to do more. Great app!!! **Update 2** I've now been using this app for 8 months and I still LOVE it. I use his app everyday and it's helped really push me to exercise much more this year than I would've w/o it. Very reliable and user friendly app and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their fitness. **Update 3** I've now been using this app for 15 months and I still LOVE it and use it everyday. This app has really helped me improve my fitness level over the past year and it's great to be able to see the tremendous progress I've made from a year ago. Thanks again to the developers for a fantastic app!

Fantastic
Motivation at its finest! Absolutely love this app. Thank you for whoever created this lovely app. Since the day I downloaded it & started using it, I have absolutely loved it & find it very motivating to continue to want to reach my daily goals & to watch my “Goal Streaks” I never want to miss a day, lol. The only downfall is, if you don’t have the AppleWatch or some kind of watch to connect to Bluetooth you constantly need to have your phone on you, so you’re always making sure you have it or you might get upset that your app missed about however many steps you did without it, lol. That’s the only downfall to the app. I have used the free version & I have used the purchased version. I obviously love the purchased one more because you can change everything & the free version is very limited but overall, I would highly recommend this app to everyone & anyone interested in either their daily step count, calories, flights climbed, your streaks, ETC. I do it for the motivation to be honest, lol. I love watching how many steps I’ve done & it keeps you active to say the least! & of course you can get in shape using this app! 5-stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟 Thank you so much for such an amazing application even the free version like I said! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this “Steps App!”

Perfect addition for fitness at any level
This app fills a huge hole in the iPhone / iwatch fitness app lineup. Simply put it counts steps, and provides a way to display that information real time on your iwatch. Huge oversight (or hubris) by Apple, corrected with this little app.... Brilliantly executed, simple, no B.S. Now I can see if I have 60 steps, 6,000steps, or 12,000 steps to gauge how much more walking I need to do to meet my goals for the day. No pulling out my phone, no swiping, just glance and go. Really should get 6 or more stars for fixing apples mistake. UPDATE: It’s been a couple years since I bought this app, and it still works great. Highly recommend if you have step goals. Great integration with the Iwatch and iPhone. You have to set your watch face up to display the app results, and you have to flip a few radio buttons to integrate with Ihealth and the exercise app. My initial review still stands. Probably the best app I’ve bought. It’s worth whatever they charged me. I use it all the time, you will too. I am in no way affiliated with the maker of this app and feel I’m providing a fair unbiased opinion of the app. I have received NO compensation for this review. The app just happens to be that good.

Really good step counter
First off... this app isn’t a subscription type app. It does work with your Apple Watch. Have mine running on a Series 4. It uses mostly the data that your watch and iPhone already collect... your steps. The only difference is how that data is used and presented. The app allows you to set your own daily goals, including calories burned goals for the day. The Activities app that Apple includes with the Apple Watch doesn’t allow you to alter your goals in any way. Not even the daily calorie goal. Which I think is kinda stupid. I work at a desk most of the day and I was finding it really difficult to meet the default 5000 daily steps the Activities app sets for you. Or the 460 daily calorie goal from activity. With this app, I can set my daily goal to whatever step count I want, and even the daily activity calorie goals, to something more realistic for me personally that I can achieve... but I do push to exceed those goals as much as I can. All the other apps I came across with similar features were all subscription based services... many costing upwards of $100/yr. I hate subscription services... especially for an app I’m buying. Just stupid. Save your money and just pay the $2.99 for a simple to use app and be done with it.

A Great Motivator
I have been using the Apple Watch and iPhone for a number of years, but then, I came across the Steps App, and once installed, I was quite impressed! The makers had a unique way of creating an app that is centered on the one thing that I, along with a LOT of other people look to see when using the Activity app: Steps.... The only thing I would recommend for improvement is that when we use the app to actually record an actual walk, we should be able to see how many miles we have walked instead of yardage.... Other than that, very impressive app! The graphics, colors, and data breakdowns in days, weeks and months are all very helpful. Lastly, the “motivation” of it in helping you to achieve at least 10,000 steps daily (or whatever other steps goal you would like to achieve) through a series of notifications, along with your weekly progress on Wednesdays and Sunday’s is also very informative and helpful! All in all: If you want to have a good motivation tool for achieving new steps goals, and ultimately a more active lifestyle, I highly recommend that you have this in your app Arsenal!

Mostly good, but could be better
I like this app, but it’s not accurate for flights of stairs. I live on the third floor of an old building with high ceilings. That’s 21 steps up, walk 15 steps down the hall to the next flight, and then another 18 steps up. This app calls that 1 flight of stairs. I did laundry an went up those stairs 6 times, that’s 12 flights. This app counted it as 5. Also, what if I leave my phone behind as I walk down and in back to take out the trash? I know that’s at least 200 steps going down, out back and coming back up. But there’s no way to add those steps manually. Also, the app doesn’t let you decrease your goals always. I could with the steps, but not with the stairs. Other than all that, I like using this app. It makes counting my steps fun. **** Reply to developer who attempted to “help.” READ MY REVIEW: I said how long/ tall the flights are here. This is an old bldg. with 10/12 ft. ceilings. And I ALREADY sync with my Apple Health app. And the rest of that crap about turn on or turn of the sensor? It’s gobbledegook. I want an easy app to count my steps. And I want to be able to manually correct it or add flights or steps that got missed. I do not want to program that myself and I shouldn’t have to. You are the app developer. This is your app. Your job is to do the programming. So. Do. It.

Motivator
For me, the StepsApp is a motivator. It keeps track of stuff that’s important to me. Mainly, how many steps I walked, how long it took me and how many miles I walked at the end of the week and month. I don’t overdo it, my goal is only 6,000 steps (I’m 76), but if I’m close to my goal in the evening, I just might walk a few more steps to reach that magic number. I thought about getting a Fitbit or an Apple Watch, but StepsApp fits the bill for me just fine. Added three years later: I’m still pleased with my StepsApp. I’m almost 80 now, and I’m continuing the walks almost every day. Reached my goal of 6,000 steps four times this week. It takes me a little longer these days and StepsApp keeps me apprised of how many hours a week I walk, how many steps, how many calories burned and so on. Still consider a Fitbit every so often, but I’m totally satisfied with this app. Update I turned 80 this year and I’m still happy with my StepsApp. I started this app in 2015 and to this day I’ve reached my goal over 500 times. Granted, 6K is not much for a young person, but for me it’s a reasonable goal. I hope I get to use this app for a few more years.

Exactly what I’ve been looking for!
I did a lot of research on step counting apps and this one was always highly rated. I loved the simplicity of it so I figured I’d give it a shot. I love Apples health app but have always been frustrated with their app updating my steps, sometimes it seemed like it took forever. But that wasn’t a problem with this app. Every time I checked my watch it updated my steps and this in turn motivated me even more to reach my goal. I thought it would eat up my battery but I hardly noticed any difference from what it normally would do. I also like how it shows you a monthly chart that shows what days you reached your goal and also a grand total of steps you’ve taken since a certain date. The only thing I wish it had was a feature to challenge other friends or family members to see who got in the most daily steps like some other apps have. My wife just got this app so she can try to out walk me! Good luck! If you want a simple step counter that keeps track of your steps daily and more, this is definitely the one for you.

Another way to stay number one!
It would be really cool if the steps app was also similar to a game in the sense of our accomplishments the more that we do the more points we can earn the more fun things that we can probably accomplish in the game, making us want to go further side like in Pokémon go how you could discover things on the run and the more you were walking in the more than you could find more interesting and rare things is the same concept as I’m trying to pitch would be kind of fun to see something like that on this app just a suggestion and as far as accuracy goes I still think it’s about 98% or but still overall I’m pretty happy with it. Also as in some more customizable content and maybe something more engaging during the run. A progress guide perhaps like it talks at different levels maybe sobering encouraging to keep pushing and health facts like by rubbing it walking today as apossed to sitting you’ve gainedxyz benefits to your health and your great! Ask I can do now is got sobering will read this and put it to use!

A standing ovation for one of the best step counter apps out there
I have been an avid Fitbit user for the last 2 years. But I had a problem with the wristband and whilst having it fixed, I figured I should get a step counter on my phone, something to use in the interim. I am however proud to say I haven’t gone back to my Fitbit ever since. Steps App has done a brilliant job of keeping track of my step counts (and even better it doesn’t do that annoying thing Fitbit does when sometimes the band can’t tell whether you are walking or you are in a cab. This app only counts the actual steps you take). I love how I can set goals for my steps and the stairs I want to climb, plus the amount of activity I want to do. I even love how it also registers the calories I am burning when I walk, and how accurate it is to. Using Steps has been a wonderful experience and I totally recommend it to anyone else. Also, you get most of the nifty features with the free version. But I love the change of colour the pro gives me.

Good app
I got the free version of StepsApp in summer while I was desperately wanting to do an exercise outside. You know, it’s 2020. I chose this app for its simplicity. I just needed to know how much I walked and the distance. With this free app, I set my daily goal of 10,000 steps a day at first, then quickly realized it was just too much for me and eased back to 6,000 steps a day. Changing the goal is easy. I love to watch the shining circle when I reach my goal. With my free version, it seems I cannot keep my record more than a week or so, so if you want to keep it longer, then you’ll want the Premium version I guess. It counts your steps by feeling the vibration you make while walking, so sometimes I see some discrepancies with my feeling ( ex. I walked longer than yesterday but the count is about same). I try to keep it in my pocket, not in my hand, and it could be a problem when I Zoom walk with the mic on. I wish the app is a bit more sensitive for this. But overall, I like this app, it’s been a great incentive for me to walk, and I’m glad I use it. Recommend to a walker who doesn’t need detailed fancy tool.

This app is everything to me than anything other step counter
My family mostly uses a Fitbit and I didn't have one because I don’t like wearing things around my wrist and this app doesn’t make me put something around my wrist. I downloaded the app for free half a year ago and so ever since then the app really kept me motivated because I like the sense of pride and reaching step, calories, mile, and hour goals give me that sense of pride I love. I eventually “bought” the pro version of the app and I am more addicted to the app I had ever been. I really love how efficient, simple, and easy to use. It is also visually pleasing to me and love the 6 different colors. I honestly would say this app is worth more to me than any other step count app or brand. It’s so easy and cheap. I love this app so much. Even my friend was interested in it and showed her what the app does for free and the perks of the pro version of the app. ————————————————— If you’re looking for a step counter that is easy, efficient, simple, visually pleasing, and cheap I recommend this app to you!

Outstanding in every way
This app works seamlessly across my watch and two different phones. It syncs with Apple Health, doesn’t double-count steps (even when I’m using two devices at once!) and is both intuitive and beautiful to use. I’ve been a pro user for many years and, after two-plus years staying mostly out of gyms and away from people, I’m dusting off my shoes and getting back into the swing of things. I have a lot of work to do…and I appreciate thoughtful apps like this to help motivate me. Quick update 9/22: There were some changes to the results page, under insights and “all-time” totals. I found the previous version more intuitive, where the steps counts were inside the graphic bars, with the years anchored to the side. It’s the other way around now and not as easy to scan and compare. Would it be possible to offer users the ability to swap them if we wish to?

GREAT APP!!
This app is the easiest app to use! Once you download it and set it up that’s it you set it and forget it! It kicks in and gives me a little updates according to the frequency that I set up and I am constantly in the know about my daily activities level. This is really important to me because it lets me know whether or not I need to get off the couch and do some exercise or if I was way over my daily goal or even if I need to step it up a little bit and get some more steps in. If you’re like me and you like using technology but you’re not the best at being technologically savvy this is the app for you. It will make you feel good about yourself to as it tells you throughout the day that you’re getting closer and closer to your daily fitness goal. Do yourself a favor, Do your family a favor, do your spouse or significant other favor and get healthy while you sing this app!

Unnecessary, inaccurate and annoying!
I was so excited when I got my new Apple Watch that I searched for apps that I could include and purchased this one. I was so new to the Watch that I didn’t realize it did everything this app does only does it correctly. One reviewer wrote that you couldn’t edit the goals on the Apple Watch, which is ridiculous because it’s extremely easy to do on the Watch. Fortunately I didn’t spend too much money on this but regret every penny I did. Frequently in the middle of my daily 4 mile walk, the steps app will send an alert saying I’ve been sitting too long and have to move around. This happens often during the day, usually when I’m walking. It’s really garbage and I don’t understand why it’s been rated so highly. Perhaps if people use this solely as a pedometer and not link it to a phone or watch it could be helpful, but that doesn’t explain the annoying alerts that’s tell me to move when I’m already moving. Can’t wait to get rid of it! Response to developer: I did have this synced with Apple Health from the start. Always sent me annoying alerts that I’ve been sitting too long while I’m out walking. Much happier since I deleted this!

Worthy of a review!
I don’t take the time to write a lot of reviews. Today it just seems like we are inundated with requests to review products or fill out surveys! Who has time for all of that? Every now and then however, a product comes along that particularly impresses me - and I feel compelled to recognize its excellence. StepsApp is one such app! At it’s core, you may be tempted to say “it’s just a pedometer…no biggie!” While that may be essentially true, it is the elegance and presentation of my data that makes this app a winner to me. Along with tracking my steps, duration, distance, calories and floors, the app also gives me a variety of ways to analyze my data. Trends, averages, totals and records for various time frames including daily, weekly, last 7 days, monthly and yearly allow me to get a great look “inside” my data to really see how my performance is improving. On top of a nice app with wonderful dark mode and Apple Watch support, StepsApp also has a great development team that is very supportive and responsive. A recent bug I reported received email response within 24 hours and the bug was patched and the app updated within 5 days of my report! That was simply incredible! Walking is a major part of my fitness regimen and I depend on StepsApp to help keep me motivated to push ever harder!

Steps to Success
Very good app. I’m 68 y/o and I’m slowing down. This app lets me know how many more steps to reach my goal of 5,000 steps per day. I’m a busy Teacher/Nurse. When I first started this, I was disappointed with how few steps I was taking when I thought I was walking a marathon...ok...a half marathon. Seriously, I was just trying to get 5,000 steps. I found that by walking the long hall instead of the short one I could get in 500 more steps. Then I would add on another longer route to where I was going and add a few more steps, etc. After 3 weeks, I finally conquered 5,300 steps today! Yessss! Now that I’m taking my classes to clinical, I won’t have to worry about reaching my goal for the remainder of the semester since I will exceed 5,000+ each day. Then I start over for the Spring Semester. Excellent app...is helping me a lot. Maybe I’ll try for 6,000 steps. : )

Great App
I use this App every day for general step count and Outdoor walking. I found it to be very accurate until recently. When I walk outdoors my steps are tracked separately from my general steps until I stop the Outdoor Walk, then it combines the total steps in the general count. Recently I have noticed a difference in the counts. As an example, today I had already walked about 3654 general steps and then turned on Outdoor Walk. When the Outdoor walk was finished, I was showing that Walk at 10,642 steps, yet my total step count is only 6,539, when I thought it would be 17,281. This is the second time I have noticed this type discrepancy in the past two weeks. Also, would much prefer a way to reach out to Steps APP support, other than doing a review. If it is in the APP, then please make it easier to find. I don’t do social media...

Changes Historical Data
This app has changed historical steps affecting goal streaks. I had 165 day streak going and out of nowhere, the app went back and changed steps from 43 days ago. Very frustrating when I dedicated time to attaining goals and then the app just arbitrarily changes historical data. Giving the app a couple of days to correct, if not, then finding an app that is dependable. Very frustrating!!! UPDATE-The Developer diagnosed and corrected the issue and the streak is correct again! Very happy with Developer response and the very timely matter in which it was addressed. I really like this app and the correction just reinforces my belief with the support provided. Now looking back over my experience, the developer has earned a corrected review, I think a 5 star is now how I feel.

Great Application Focused on Health.
My wife has been using the StepsApp for months. It took only days to realize the Pro Version was going to be well worth the extremely reasonable yearly subscription. A total win. Last month a had a very rough full open heart surgery and the App has been a blessing. Together with Apple Health and StepsApp I have everything on my rest that keeps my walking up to date, which makes my Cardiologist happy. Additionally, we have needed to call for support and also contacted them for a bit of guidance. Simply said the folks at StepsApp they have responded extremely quickly and are extremely helpful. StepsApp in coordination with Apple Health, a win win. I highly recommend this App. And look forward to what they bring next that will add to the Excellent Apple Health applications.

Good App for anyone who walks
I started walking at the being of the CoronaVirus March 2020. I’ve have has 3 back surgeries but thanks to a great chiropractor he got me to walk again! Each day I walked a little more & a little more & realized I needed to keep track of my steps. Ex: in October 2020 I walked 155 miles & it counted every step of it. I needed a step counter that was easy to use & offered me other options also. This one is so easy, it counts my steps, gives me a goal, does daily counts, weekly breakdowns & overall monthly stats, anyone can use this app without a problem. It set my goal step count for height & weight & I can easily adjust if I wanted to. This has been an outstanding app for me & I truly recommend it highly. Thanks my life has certainly changed for the better…

Steps App
If you have a pocket, put your phone in it when you go for a walk. Not only will your phone keep you safe if you need to contact someone because you have fallen, been hit by a car, etc. -your phone can also tell you how many steps you have taken. This app can also tell you how far you’ve gone, and provide other facts about your daily exercise. At the end of the week it will give you a report and suggestions. In addition it is VERY simple to operate because you don’t have to do anything. I also have a watch which I find VERY difficult to use. I have friends who quickly mastered the intricacies of their watches. The watches were designed by millennials for millennials…people who love technology and quickly grasp it. That’s not me.

Great Motivator
Being 65 y/o I wanted to start back slowly into walking & eventually back to the elliptical. I thought about buying a pedometer but didn’t want to spend a lot of money on one that would track more than just steps. Fitbit is just too out of my price range so I figured let’s look at some apps. I read the reviews of a lot of different ones but this one caught my eye. What can I say? After less than a week I bought the full version. It motivates and challenges me to meet my daily goal. Which is great because it gets me on my feet and moving! I adjusted the daily goal to fit my needs so not to get discouraged if I didn’t reach 10,000 steps. I’m determined to work my way to the 10k daily as a long term goal. Thank you for this great motivational app! Love it!

Daily Goals
I really love StepsApp. I will definitely change my star rating to 5 stars if the app would allow daily goals to be individualized. When I set a daily goal for a certain amount of steps depending on what I’m doing that day then it changes my past daily goals to the current day. There are some days that I know I’m going to be very busy at work at my desk so I set my goals according to that. The app helps me remember that I have a goal to meet. But then on a Sunday when my husband and I are going to be lazy I prefer to set my goals low and not worry about whether I meet them or not. Like I said then all of my other daily goals change to match. I was disappointed when I discovered what I consider a flaw in the app. I did choose to buy the app thinking maybe that would upgrade but it didn’t. I still love the app but I wish the daily goals were separated.

Disappointed
I purchased this program for my iPhone to get more accurate step counting and in real time. I previously had a Fitbit and didn’t realise how spoiled I was with their free tracking app which logs steps in record time while you watch the counter. I like to workout with my phone linked to my watch and watch the counter go up on the phone so I don’t have to keep looking at my watch but even an expensive app like this can’t compare to Fitbit in that regard. Recently (in the past week) when I check my watch app it has been deducting steps… I’ll hit 10k and the next thing I know it show 7k+, then I’ll hit 9k and it will drop down to 8k so I have to keep going to hit my goal which I am now way over because of this issue and give up. I am very disappointed with the app, it was kinda pricy to begin with and after spending good money monthly for the program I am thinking it is not worth the cost.

It’s a decent app
2 years ago I weighed in at 220 at 16 years old. I was definitely overweight and I wanted to just do mild things to help me to lose some. After 9 months I ended up weighing roughly 130 pounds by age 17. All by counting 10,000 steps a day and by doing other exercises like lifting and just going out in the sun and doing other activities day by day. Either way I think the main issue I had prior was I’d stay inside too much. If you just change up your diet a little and go outside more you’re bound to shed some pounds. I never spent a day in the gym. But I lost more weight then most do in the gym. (To be fair most people go to the gym to get toned or to gain muscle mass but regardless I feel like if someone reads this they’ll get the point I’m tryna get across)either way. Really nice app. It’s done a lot for me.

Steps App
I really like how the steps apps is organized to accumulate your steps for the day, whether it’s in the fore ground or in the background; or even if you shut the phone off, it still captures the data in the background for the whole day. Additionally, as an additional big plus, I love how the app holds the last 7 days of data so you can go back-and-forth across any day to see what your progress is for the whole week. I also like the read out of calories, distance, and steps. I highly recommend this application to anybody interested in a real easy to use exercise app that runs as a background application accumulating this kind of data/information. Very, very well done. -Floyd J

Interesting and I want one that is free. Do you have anything like this but it’s free?
I am almost 73 years old and I worked in a nursing home and I was LPN and I helped bed checks. I had 24 patients. I told you all of this because I have to use a walker inside and outside. We live in an apartment with two full bathrooms and three bedrooms so I have a long hallway and I am going to walk back and forth. Last year I could do it two times and I want to go farther and then when I can do it five times and last year I weighed 213 pounds and then this morning I am down to 164 pounds. I only eat when I’m hungry and I usually sleep late and then I will get up 5 pm so that’s only eating dinner and I eat sugar free popsicles.

Problems Lately…FIXED NOW 👍
I have had this app for many years and it has always been solid. But within the last week there have been 2 instances where it just stops updating in the app usually around early evening. The Health App by Apple shows the correct steps and the Apple Watch shows the correct steps BUT the actual app on my iPhone doesn’t update no matter what I do. Very frustrating! I don’t want to find a new steps app but I may have to if this keeps happening. Please fix! UPDATE App is working great again. Not sure what the issue was but it seems to have been an outlier. Developer advised me to restart phone. I did, but issue already resolved itself.

Needs bugs fixed
I like the app it’s easy and convenient. But the tracking of steps is unpredictable, some days it’s tracks all my steps and other days it doesn’t I unsynced Apple health like in a previous review I read to do and when I did I lost 1k steps never updated either. I turned Apple health back on and gained the steps back, and unfortunately having it on is the only way to track them on my Apple Watch. Another draw back is when I don’t have my phone with me and just wearing my watch and it tracks my steps on my watch, when I open the step app on my phone the phone steps take over and make my watch show what the phone steps are instead of all the steps I just took on my watch. They aren’t syncing the right way.

Like anything this is a good tool if you use it.
I use this app to track my walking and progression only. It’s easy to use to me $20 some dollars for an entire year. That’s $1.66 per month very cheap considering how prices are outrageous these days.. I wish the person who owns the app adds a program where it’s like gps and tracks your movement overview on a map wherever you are. I wish local famous places to walk, run and bike are within the app wher tou live and tells you many steps or length and and information like that also with a stop watch timer. There’s a couple apps that have that I like that. Wish person adds to this list of things they offer, but who knows?

Stepping Up My Game
I enjoy this app. My iPhone already has step tracking included in the health app, but with StepsApp it simplifies it and organizes it nicely. With the ease of use it allows me to see where I am throughout that day and allows me to push myself to make my goals. My only suggestion would be to have the option of working off of a 24-hour clock instead of a calendar. Reason being is that I travel internationally weekly and as I go back and forth between the time zones my steps get all thrown off and reorganized. Plus, I would like for the app to allow for more colors to preset, maybe a color wheel for more customization other than a handful of colors. Other than that I’m in Love with this app.

Love MyFitPal!
I RARELY Purchase apps. If I can’t get them for free then I don’t download them. But in this case I’ve bit the bullet and download the free trial. After two days into the 30 day free trial I went ahead and made the yearly purchase. It has absolutely everything I am looking for and I have already after one week lost 8 pounds. They’re right the best thing you can do in your weight loss journey is absolutely journal everything you put into your mouth. It gives you such clarity on what is going on. I love the steps monitor that is built into the app. Actually there is nothing I don’t like there is even a yoga center in this app. You won’t be sorry go for it

Not recording my steps -need update?
Using this app for 2 yrs.. What happened to this app? at first I thought it was my watch but then I realized the app reading on the watch is up to date, but when I look at the app on my phone it is way off . And at first it was taking a while to register the steps so it had to have been either the Apple update a week prior or something changed and this app is out of date with the latest iOS from watch to the app on the phone, hours later and I checked after 1:30am and it never captured my steps :( this is ruining my steps goals. And I was going to pay for the annual subscription, but now? no thanks. The only reason I still have this app is because the UI works very well on my watch and is easy to follow.

It’s amazing it counts how many steps you walk and it amazes me on how you feel the energy Go up in your body and it makes u feel so good after you have accomplished the work out or the steps you have walked or even just by waking up and down the stair case at home or at work or at school or at a park or at a store or even walking around places and it will do you 100% Good I promise you that by a lot and I mean a lot I’m grateful for this app 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Works well
I use this app on my iPhone and on my Apple Watch 5. The look and feel of the app is good, I do like it better than my former Fitbit but there are differences. With the Fitbit it broadcasts its data to the app on your phone all the time. With this app the phone and the watch apps operate separately and need to be intentionally synced. Some of this could be my own learning curve. The reason for my 4 stars instead of 5 is their get up and move feature where it detects you haven’t been moving and reminds you to. Several times I’ve have it do this while I’m in the middle of 3 to 4 mile walks making me question what it is monitoring if anything at all.

Decent but needs fixing
Good app! Used it for quite a while now! But lately for some reason it doesn’t track my steps as much I’m not sure why either but it gives me an inaccurate reading of my steps that day- as yesterday on Wednesday it was is all I did was 38 but I had been walking a lot that day and also went skating on my roller skates- maybe my pace on the skates was too fast for it to track? And possibly it though I was in a moving car? I’m not sure but other days it just won’t give me an accurate reading in general. Too many AD’s on the app but otherwise really good to use and when it does keep track properly it doesn’t very well, and it’s an easy app to use! Easy to figure out not many overly complicated settings

The best gets better!
This is simply the best steps app on iOS!! The latest version makes it even better. Beautiful design and layouts. Always accurate. EDIT: everything is great with the new update however the developers have chosen to include in app sounds that the only way you can disable is by turning your phones sounds off. To be sitting in a quiet room and check your steps only to hear a jungle when you reach your goal is not what I want. A simple in app option to disable sounds would be great, but they chose not to include that. EDIT2: Wow! Fantastic response from the developers to include the option in the app turn off sounds. Kudos and thank you. Back to 5 stars for sure!!

Great app!
Retired and in RV resort for winter season. Love the step counter/distance and time as a way to mark my daily activity. Send record occasionally to health care providers. I continue to walk daily though with more family visiting since we now have an AZ room with foldout bed it has been more of a challenge to maintain my regimen. Back in January 2024 during Arizona winter season at our resort. Walking 5-10,000 a day depending on activities. Appreciate the steps counter. Love it as is and free! Thanks!! April 2024, getting ready to leave for Midwest for summer. Still appreciate the simplicity of the step app to record my activities of each day. No other services desired. Thanks, Phil

Discouraging/ Discouraging, PART 2
At first I really liked this app. Now, not so much. At times it does not count my stair climb. I have 12 foot high ceilings and therefore “proper “ height stairs. Sometimes I get credit other times I do not. Same flight of stairs. VERY discouraging. Is it because I’m elderly (72), have arthritis in both knees and do not dash up the stairs like a 30 year old? Also, other reviewers have mentioned, the step count can be way off: I have a two acre property and I walk the perimeter at least once a day this app will count only a couple 100 steps. That total is obviously way off. I was hoping that your new update would fix these problems. Unfortunately it did not fix these bugs. This also is most discouraging. Please advise. Thank you, Jan Part 2: my reply to the developer to the developer of Steps App: I understand the difference between steps (horizontal) and flights (vertical); I also know how to find the number of “floors” in your app. My floors are almost five meters high. Therefore your app should count them. My complaint is that your app does not always count the number of flights that I climb accurately. Sometimes the app does count them correctly sometimes it does not. I find this very frustrating. Please advise. Thank you, Jan

Perfect until very recently
I’ve enjoyed this near-perfect app for the past 2 or 3 years UNTIL this past week. The steps counter functions properly for a time then stops for multiple minutes or longer however the calorie counter and distance function just give up altogether. If I go to another steps tracking app and return, the steps will usually be caught up but not so the other functions. Hours later long after my walk has been completed I take a look at the app which looks as if the totals are then correct but perhaps short a bit. VERY disconcerting. I’m paying money for this and I walk usually between 6 and 10 mi daily 7 days a week. PLEASE repair ASAP!

Steps notifications are inaccurate.
Overall, a nice beautiful app that functions well. But I feel like I won’t be using it as much now that I have the Fitness app on the Apple Watch. One huge annoyance about this app though are the notifications. There is one in particular that is supposed to notify you when you’ve been sitting down for too much and you need to get up and walk... well that would be great if it worked! I can’t tell you now many times I’ve been walking around or just finished a work out and then sit down only to receive a notification seconds later saying I’ve been sitting around too long and need to get up and move... REALLY?! I JUST sat down from walking... and you’re telling me I’ve been sitting too long and need to get up? That’s a joke. No thanks StepsApp.

Super helpful app
Boring as this sounds, the number of steps you take has a lot to do with how healthy you stay. It’s not even about weight it’s about keeping moving and this little step tracker helps me keep motivated because walking around all the time unless you’re taking a really pretty hike sometimes walking around is super boring or sometimes you’re just tired it’s nice to have someone counting so you know how much further you have to go till you can stop and know that you took a certain amount of steps today. So yes, this isn’t ground breaking or anything but it’s a good little tool to keep you on point

THIS APP IS GREAT!! It’s interesting to see how many steps you take a day. I’m always focused on reaching my goal that is labeled on the app which makes me want to walk more just so I can beat it everyday. It gives me a great source of exorcize which I really like because I didn’t like taking walks before this and I like the change. You don’t have to take walks or runs to meet your goal either. You can do anything as long as your taking steps as you do it. It will detect it and bring up your number for the day. I haven’t paid for anything and I don’t think I will. This app is good the way it is without the extra stuff.

Kinda slow
So the app is good in my opinion, but the problem is I will take a while for the steps to load so let’s say you go on a 3 mile walk it won’t show that you walk 3 miles for a minute but if you refresh the app and come back in a couple of minutes to show that you have of reached your goal but the other problem is they have a pro fish which unlocked a whole bunch of stuff but I think it’s kind of expensive what is deafly every day app connect your Apple health uses your Apple Watch or any other type of watch compared to the Fitbit Alta actually better than Fitbit but you

Works really well and super helpful, however...
I gave it 4 *’s instead of 5 because it does count steps you’re not taking if you move your phone the wrong way... side to side/shaking type movements. If you’re looking for a spot on accurate step counter, fit bit type watches might be the better option... they are however 35-$150. If you you’re fine with a fairly accurate... maybe 50-70 off per 1000 at worst... that is also FREE (deluxe no ads etc version $2.99) then this ones is just great. I’m just looking to hit around 8-12k per day and want a reasonable idea of what I’m hitting. I do intend to get a fit bit eventually so I don’t have to have my phone with me to record steps. This is awesome for now though.
