iSteps GPS Pedometer is a fun way to help you promote your physical activity. For long-term health it is recommended that we take approx. 10,000 steps a day. For successful weight loss, daily steps should amount to 12,000-15,000.
To get started using iSteps, set up your personal profile by entering your height in cm or inches, your weight in lbs or kg, and choose how you want your results displayed, either in kcal or kJ and distance in miles or km. Then press the START button and you are ready to GO!
We recommend that you wear your iPhone or iPod touch by your waist or in your pocket, but you may need to experiment a bit to find the best location for optimal accuracy.
Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. With the option to turn off “Daily Totals Tracking”, you can save battery when needed.

Ratings and Reviews
iStep GPD Pedometer
I used this app once. Although this is an easy app to use, the "Map" icon did not show my route, and the "Distance" and "Time" icons did not record accurate information. I'm hoping the number of steps recorded is accurate. I'll continue to use it for now.
With the iOS 8 health app recording all steps all the time, this is a terrific way to select specific walks for saving and tracking: "Start new walk" at the beginning and "end walk" at the end. The number of steps, start and end times, time taken and calories used are reported, and the path taken is shown on a map/satellite image. Other apps do this, but what I really appreciate about iSteps is the design and interface; sometimes less is more and the simple elegance of this app is exemplary.
Fairly good, needs a little work
I agree with the others - it seems pretty accurate regarding step count and distance. I have tried it at the health club to compare it to the distance on our walking/running track, and it is pretty good. However, I am also frustrated that it won't work in the background, stops if you access your iPod or answer a phone call, and stops sometimes for no reason that I can determine. I must bump the display somehow. I have also found that it does not work well when held in your hand. Clipped to a belt or in a pocket work fine for me, but held in my hand it undercounts by about 40%.
