I've used this app for a long time and until the most recent update it worked fine. Favorite features are the trip-meter and daily log. But since the update it has missed up to half the actual steps. I see 2 new settings - save battery and decrease the sensitivity. Both were on by default. I turned both off but did not fix the problem. Now I am trying other apps. Two that I have tried seem to be accurate but don't have the features I am looking for. Still looking unless a fix for Walkroid comes. Followup to my original review: The app developer has published an updated version of Walkroid that fixed the problem I described. It now works correctly (at least for me) and so it deserves five stars.

Thanks for your reporting. I fixed the problem that the app could fail to count steps. I released it as Ver 2.15. Please try it.
I tried many other step counter apps. This is the only one I found that isn't boated with other features. I compared to Samsung Health and Google Fit for accuracy, and I found this app is more sensitive; tracking steps even when you are holding the phone steady (e.g. on a phone call) rather than only picking up the swinging motion of your hands.

I love the app, but with the latest version it sometimes (about once a week) doesn't start logging steps automatically, so I'll open the app mid-day to see that I have ZERO steps! So now I have to open it each morning and verify that it's logging steps, which is a hassle.

We have recently released a new version that mitigates this problem.
Give it a try.
