Can I stop or pause step counting?

With StepsApp 3.0 and the latest version of Android it is possible to pause the app when you are for example driving the car, or when you are on the bus or train.

This is how you can pause the app:

Option 1

  1. Find the StepsApp icon on your phone
  2. Long press on the icon
  3. Click “Pause App”
  4. As soon as the app is paused, the icon shows up in gray

To continue step counting, open the app and click “unpause app”.

Option 2

  1. Open StepsApp
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Turn on "Pause StepsApp" (top of the page)

To continue step counting, open the app and click on the big circle.

If you are in sync with Google Fit the app does not pause. To do so you also have to pause Google Fit.
