Very useful app

Downloaded as the only free one compatible for my iPhone 5c.
It's not 100% accurate as sometimes it doesn't register all steps, however it's pretty ok and gives you quite a good idea of how you are doing. I like all the options of charting your progress and great that you can change the settings to suit.

This is a genuine fun app, does use a bit of battery but you can total every day or partway through, count calories burned, even checks your workout, loads of information too

Tried this app today for the first time. Easy to use but will only do 3,000 steps for free. Did not want to pay for it simply because I was not sure how good it was. I walk about 3 to 5 miles 5 days a week. Give it a go if you do 3,000 steps or less.
