If you’re a walker, or have vowed to try to take those 10,000 steps a day we’re supposed to be getting, there are a few apps out there you might want to consider.
Moves is compatible with iPhone and Android. It automatically records any walking you do (as well as running and cycling.) It allows you to see the distance, duration, steps, and calories burned for each activity. And it’s always activated, so you don’t need to worry about remembering to turn it on and off.
Map My Walk also tracks your activity, and allows you to use your phone’s built-in GPS to track your walks. It will record duration, distance, pace, speed, elevation, calories burned, and route traveled on an interactive map. It works with iPhone, Android, and Windows phones.
Pedometer ++ is so far only available for iPhones, specifically the iPhone 5s. This app takes advantage of the M7 motion coprocessor to count the number of steps you’ve taken and act as a step-tracking fitness log.
