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 was looking for a simple and lightweight pedometer and found this app. It has all the features I want, and no unnecessary "calorie counting" which I want to avoid. The step counting seems accurate and the gui is clean and easy to understand. The manual page is very helpful. The app works fine on my OnePlus. In summary, it's perfect. Thank you!
