Has Not Failed Me

I am a and slow. I do not jog nor run, so I cannot address this app for those who do. But, this app has been working consistently for me month after month. It gives me all the data to let me know how my workout/walkout is doing per day and over time. It has not failed me. I endorse this app.

I like it but...

I like this app, it seems to be pretty accurate and I love that it tracks the time I spent walking as well as how many calories I’m burning. However, I’ve noticed that the app doesn’t start counting my steps automatically even when I put it on “always track steps”. I have to first open the app for it to start tracking my steps. With that being said, if I close the app during the day it will stop tracking my steps. So I have to remember to reopen it if I close it. And that’s kind of a hassle. It would be nice if it tracked my steps even if I close it or if I forget to open it. Other than that, I like the app.

Footsteps app

I like Footsteps app. It is simple to use. It has exactly what I wanted in an app to count how much I walked per day. It counts steps, the mileage, time, walking or running, and holds history. It probly does much more but that’s what I wanted in a simple to use format. In this format, the app is also free.
