Handy app. Great customer support.

I have a ton of apps, but only a handful I use regularly. Stepwise is one of them. It’s a great way to track my activity, etc. Just what you’d expect from a pedometer app. But when I had a problem, I was really impressed but the customer support. Friendly, helpful and truly concerned. When I didn’t reply to the last email from my tech support person (I’d been traveling), he emailed me to make sure everything was ok and to see if he could provide any more help. Gotta love that kind of follow up. Kudos Neil.

Stopped working after the update: THE FIX

So far, this is my favorite pedometer app because of the workout (“Trip”), history, and cumulative steps and miles features. What would make it great is if it would keep the “trip” history day-by-day as well. I’ve been very loyal to this app over the last couple of years and after two of the updates, my watch and the phone stopped communicating my workouts and history, which means lost data since I log my steps, workouts and miles for the entire year. I followed all the instructions on their site plus contacted their support and received their instructions, but without success. I’d checked all of my iPhone settings, but - finally - I had to open the Stepwise app on the phone, choose “Me” at the bottom right, and turn back on “Merge Apple Watch Data”. I don’t know that reboots, resets or anything is going to turn that back on within the app on the phone... you must do it. I will upgrade this review to 5 stars once that stops happening.

Hi Toni. Thanks for leaving a nice review, and I am sorry to hear of your issues.

As discussed in our communications on your ticket, I have made a change that should resolve this, which will be included with the next release (3.2.1).

Thanks again.

I might get used to the radical change and look and rate it differently. But I'm really disappointed to lose my history. Right now I long for the simple look with the white background that it had before.

This I wrote when you first change the format. I still agree with it so I’m sending it now.
I’m also not sure the accounts are accurate as they disagree radically sometimes with others. Does this require a cell phone connection all the time toBe accurate? I frequently go on hikes Where cell phone connections are limited. I don’t know how to contact the maker to ask this question so I’m using this method but I don’t know if you could respond. Probably not so maybe I’m just venting.

Thanks again for using Stepwise.

As I said in my reply in 2017, the app was updated and looks different as I took onboard a lot of user feedback over the preceding 3 years. If the new look doesn’t appeal, I’m sorry.
Again, as I said back then, all your history should still have been there, but is accessed by swiping or tapping months etc., and if you prefer a light background, feel free to choose the light background on the Me screen.

In relation to your additional update, wow, you are still using the app even though you didn't like the update. I am not sure what to say? Thank you? (Although as I hope you realise, the design isn't changing back!).

If the counts differ, it may be that you use a watch, and the merging of data may look different? But please reach out directly to me and I can look into this.

You say you don't know how to contact the maker, and you are unsure if I can respond here. First there is a feedback option on the Me screen in the app, tap it, and send me a message, I always reply! Secondly,as I said in my response here last year, you can also reach out to me at

All the best!
