Great app and an awesome community

When I committed to walking again I started just checking my steps and distance with the iPhone health app. Then I kind of wanted to know how my steps/mileage broke down when I went for a long walk. I downloaded this and another app. Originally I didn’t care much about the social aspect of this app (I’m not an Instagram/Twitter/Facebook person). I just wanted to know how far my walk was and how many steps. First I fell in love with the GPS tracking and data for each activity. It breaks down how far and how many steps for the entire activity as well as your overall and per mile pace. Then I fell in love with the community. It’s a supportive and uplifting community with people around the world and of all levels of activity who provide motivation and encouragement. The events/badges are motivating without being intimidating. The community supports everyone from 20k+ daily steppers to 2k. You can set a wide variety of goals beyond stepping including healthy eating, sleeping, hydration, etc. And you can participate as much or as little as you want in posting your achievements, goals, or just motivation. I’ve managed to go from sedentary to 10k steps in a little over a month which was my goal. I’m healthier and motivated. I was self motivated to start this journey but none of my friends wanted to commit and I have to admit the community kept me going. I highly recommend giving Pacer a try and see where it takes you!

Believe it or not....

This is my first ever, from the heart comment in my 40 yrs, so please be gentle with the comments. 😋
This app has been a great tool for me in the 2-3 months since I downloaded it. It’s really great for keeping me motivated, even when I’m ready to quit and give up. I don’t really know why, but this app is great for implementing life changes (at least so far 😉). From what I’m told, these changes will be the foundation to my weight loss and success thereof(?). Not to mention what I can’t do with this app, I can easily do on other apps. PERK - they all easily link together AND THE BEST PART is that the apps will communicate with each other and share info with each other. Using the apps together to review results in text, graph, charts, theories, suggestions, etc., I’ve been able to see my strengths & weaknesses in not only my health, but life patterns as well. I find myself mostly empowered to make these changes as a single parent of 4, FT-employee, friend and so on. And when I just want to throw my hands up in the air and say “f” it all, together, but still at different times, these four apps’ messages become more encouraging and I find the willpower to get back up on the horse (I suppose that would be the scale in this case🧐). This app, (and the others) is a total 5 star app to me.

Great app! Use it every day. Very pleased with the results and the tracking records it keeps. Would suggest that the Backup and Recovery processes be updated to allow multiple copies. That is, when a new Backup is made, if there is an earlier copy, create a new Backup with the name appended with the date and have it copied to an available iCloud or personal cloud drive. And during Recovery, allow the selection of which Backup record you’d like used for the Recovery from either the local phone data, iCloud or personal cloud drive! Why? Because I just lost 9 months of data because my phone was destroyed. I got the phone recovered late at night a few days ago from an old phone backup made in January (so all data between Jan and Sep was gone) and when I selected Recovery, the only file available was done during the night (after my phone Recovery, but before Recovery of the Pacer data). Therefore, the only Recovery file available was the one written during the night that overwrote the earlier one, and the new file was missing the Jan-Sep data. My fault ... true. But allowing penultimate backup copies would have allowed me to get all that data back regardless. Super happy otherwise!!!
