Ratings and Reviews
best to-the-point step pedometer app found for iPhone6s+
This app does exactly what it says, nothing more, nothing less. It's perfectly created with the design of simplicity in mind. It's clean cut. Clean edged work, amazing. It counts the daily steps taken, counts and adds the daily distance, counts all flights of steps taken each day, adds all running total steps up for the week and gives you the total number, in an easy to read, simply no bogus step count!! It's awesome. I wanted an app that did just this and trust me whomever downloads won't be disappointed.
+I've only used this app for less then 2 weeks thus far. But plan to continue to use and update the review if needed.
++the TIP JAR! that idea was brilliant and I did indeed add to the tip jar. Instead of making this app expensive for everyone to try before even knowing how it works or if it's the correct fit of an app for the individual, this apps creator has made the tip jar for a one time 1.99 us$ fee and it's in the wording needed to see. Helps the app developer as well takes away the adds that may appear. However I never saw an add up to the point of doing the tip jar and still no adds!! Yay! Thank you
Where do they go?
It’s clear that the developer has a keen artistic eye as Pedometer++ has the most aesthetically pleasing and easy to use UI than any other Pedometer App out there and I love and constantly use the widget functionality for quick measuring glances. I’ve had this app for nearly 3 years now and as a person who routinely reaches 10k+ steps from morning gym sessions alone, there is one glitch/flaw that has never ceased to plaque the apps flawless functionality from the get go: steps go missing out of no where or are flat out, not counted.
Just in the passed 2 weeks, there are 4 days where the app has seemingly caused a significant number of my steps to vanish into thin air EVEN AFTER THEY WERE COUNTED IN THE APP; even verified by cross referencing to Apple’s Health app that will often show a higher number. Nearly 10k steps have seemingly bestowed upon me the absolute pleasure of ghosting my counter and this has been a consistent problem for the app since day 1. The only reason I don’t flat out delete the app out of frustration some days is simply because the UI is absolutely gorgeous and I don’t think any other apps on the market measure up to the beautifully simplistic design.
Please do something about the consistent step counter glitch; it proves to be a demoralizing frustration more days than you would think
Watch gets frozen on 0 after midnight about 50% of the time.
Seriously loved this app for my watch at first. After transitioning from a Garmin with the step counter, it was just what I needed to complement the ActivityTracker. However, I keep weird hours, and I am also a run streaker, who often has to do my daily run right at midnight. It’s incredibly frustrating when my watch is frozen at zero day in and day out, and I have to reset it to her three times, and put it on the charger 2 or 3 times before it will finally start counting steps. The steps DO count on the app phone, even if my phone is still, so obviously the app on the watch is tracking the steps, but it will not show up on the watch, where I need it to show up. Currently, my watch shows me to be at less than 500 steps, but my phone shows that I’m closer to 3000. I was wearing the watch while I ran on my treadmill at midnight, but the phone was sitting still on the treadmill. That means that I’m still dependent on my phone to know how many steps I’ve taken, which is pointless. That’s a discrepancy that will not work for somebody who manages statistics the way I do. The entire reason that I have the watch is so that I don’t need to carry my phone. If this can be fixed, I will change my rating to 5- stars.
