Calculation of distance is wrong. The route I take is roughly between .75 and .80 of a mile. Lately it's showing I have walked over 2 miles on the same route. It also does not track the GPS accurately it shows the route I took over a mile opposite in the direction I went. I have location on and allow GPS but it's been recording wrong all week. The previous week it was just working fine. Would give higher rating if this got fixed.

I have this app on my phone. It registers every step when the phone is either on me or in the purse I'm carrying. It displays distance and calories burned. It does not record steps when it's riding on a grocery cart. The accuracy is amazing. I enjoy using the app, which has many other features as well.

I use Pacer for the virtual challenge and while I do like the challenge feature with the maps and postcards, I found the app to be a bit clunky at times, especially when trying to look at my progress while doing a challenge. My main issue however is that the app unpaused a paused challenge without any action from me and I have now an ended unfinished challenge and no medal. Response from support will definitely affect whether or not I will give this app and the pacer challenge another shot.
