The results of pedometer looks ok as you walk, but most of the time it overestimates the steps especially when you have set in your hand and you move a little bit here and there (not walking properly). It is better if the device adjusts the steps length automatically for accuracy and then it correspondingly compares and draws the steps of various amplitudes to the distance covered.
Worst app...don't download it.... As if you just walk 4 steps it would count it 14-24 and sometimes 50 and the calorie counter is increasing so fast which makes you think that you are doing tremendously fine with this much less efforts... Guys don't make yourself fool...check it once before believing...and PACER is far better than this...either pedometer app developer should work and improve it or guys just compare this app with others.. And be conscious about what is happening.
4.5 stars It does what it promises, it does it well. One thing I would like, is for the step count to display on the Android drop menu. "Pedometer" is there, but that's it, on a mint green background....I feel like there should be at least some information there as well. Besides that, app work well. You'll definitely have to calibrate it...it was counting a little fast for me on default settings. It runs well and accurately in the background and is not a resource hog like some other backgrounder apps can be.
I use it for work and I am floored by how many miles I walk a day! It does not seem ultra sensitive and only records real steps...I walked 13 miles in 6 hours one day doing my production warehouse work. My feet hurt, but at least I can show people this great app!
No bells/whistles which is nice. It has one unique asset most other walking apps lack. An adjustment for stride length. Using this, you can "calibrate" the app to known distances using google maps GPS and make it very accurate. BUT - for me on my Note 5, app stops working - often. This is a big prob. Buffer overload or something. It's otherwise a great app.
As good as you'll probably get for a free app. You may have to fiddle with the settings to get more accurate step counts (I've had to turn the sensitivity right down to 1), but it's pretty comprehensive info/stat wise. Makes you more determined to walk more and beat precious step counts... don't say you haven't been warned 😉
Fixed some minor bugs
