StepsApp uses your Android phone's built-in pedometer to track your steps. Just put it in your pocket and you should be fine. If you carry your phone in your handbag, backpack, or in your baby buggy, your phone might not be able to track all of your steps correctly. Likewise when you go for a bike ride, your iPhone might misinterpret some of your pedal strokes as steps. This happens because pedometers calculate steps based on vibration patterns.
StepsApp uses your phone's built in motion sensor to automatically calculate your distance. If you have the feeling that the distance is not correct, you might consider setting your step length manually.
To change the units from metric to imperial – or the other way around – please follow these steps:
If StepsApp suddenly stops counting steps, this is usually because the app is not allowed to run in the background, or because of battery optimization settings. Here is how to get StepsApp back up and running:
Some Android devices don't have the necessary sensors for tracking steps. StepsApp works with all Android phones with a built-in pedometer and Android Lollipop 5.0 (API level 21) or newer.

You don't have to keep the app open. StepsApp will automatically track your steps in the background without draining your battery.
Unfortunately some devices will not record the number of steps when they are locked. This depends exclusively on the specifications of each device and is not a bug of the app.

The amount of calories you burn depends on your body weight, size, age, sex and - most importantly - the distance you cover. The same amount of steps might result in different calorie values depending on your activity. Why? Your step length is usually longer when running than when you are simply strolling around in the city. This way you cover a much greater distance with the same number of steps – which in return results in a much higher calories-burned value.
