Ratings and Reviews
It’s the one single app I own that I use daily!
[June 2021 Update] Still loving the app. I’m on a streak since March 2020 with perfect monthly scores. My secret is setting my daily step goal low so It’s easier to reach my goal when there are challenges, like bitter cold or really rainy days. My overall steps have actually increased this year as my daily consistency has now become my routine. I’ve used the Pacer app daily for four years and counting. If you carry your phone with you all day it works great. Counting every step. Add in your weight and blood pressure readings it's a health log. I like being able to look back see my progress and history. It only shows 1year of history in the main window but there is a way to see history past one year just not as a beautiful chart. [Hint to the makers, that would be an appreciated feature!] Great to look back and see your overall change and hopefully progress or a little friendly self competition each day try to show up better than you were yesterday! This year I started walking outside everyday. The whole year-round. I live in Iowa and some days of winter can be brutal cold. I wasn’t perfect but I significantly increased my daily steps. Ps. I’ve personally noticed some guys seem to treat this is as a dating app. It’s not and it’s easy to spot them & easy to ignore them.
Great app—better than before
Whatever bug there was before has long been fixed. This app is fantastic, so disregard the negatives from my previous review and only pay attention to the positives!
I love this app! When I first started using it I would set my goal to at least 10,000 steps a day and could keep track of how many steps I was getting in when I would walk my dog, go to the gym, and walk around at work. It was great! I was so proud of myself when I would get to 10,000, 15,000 and then a record of 18,000 steps. So then I tried to beat my record and just the other day got up to over 21,000 steps. The only problem is that the next day when I was looking at my monthly average I saw that my 21,000-step day shot down to zero! What?! I thought maybe my phone just needed to be restarted so I tried that, opened up the app again and yep--sure enough, it still said zero steps for that day. Same thing happened the next day; my 10,000 steps turned to zero when I referred back to it. So I thought I was done with this app but then just today my steps reappeared! So I guess my only complaint is that the steps sometimes disappear for a few days and then magically appear again. It would be really nice if they could work that out--then it would be a five-star app all the way.
I love this app. It allows you to log outside activity of pretty much any kind. Only thing I wish it would add was a “chores” option for housework but I can see why they can’t do that, it’s too broad and unpredictable. However it has everything I personally need to work out right now!! I’m pretty out of shape, 80lbs above the highest healthy weight for someone my height. I’m starting out with the novice stretches, and I’m doing the yoga sequences in the calm app. The calm app is great too and it does log my exercise, but I like logging it into pacer because then it’s all in one spot. Love having the pedometer. The work out videos are really good. I love it!! I was ready to pay for the subscription after my first three days of using it and after a month, I can’t say I regret it!! I’m going to buy the yearly subscription next. This is an essential app for me, I wouldn’t be where I am in my workout journey without it!! I’ve done yoga over half the days in this month. I went from never working out, to nearly working out every single day!!! Thanks pacer!!! I can’t wait to start exploring their higher level exercises (and I LOVE that they categorize them so you know what you’re getting into). They give helpful and thoroughly suggestions on how to meet your goals... basically... it’s perfect!!!
