Stepz. Turn your mobile phone into a pedometer. Clever, clever, Java, clever. $4.99.

 Stepz is a full-featured pedometer program. Use it during your walking/jogging exercise to keep track of time, distance traveled, energy consumed and current and average speed.


  • So how the hell does that work then???

  • According to the blurb it works by estimating your steps via a timer. I suspect that you program it with your average gait and stuff and it does the rest. I guess! :-)

  • That`s not a proper pedometer then. No breaks in walking with that software, so I`ll be waliking all damn day to get my 10000 steps.

  • I dunno, don’t take my word for it, maybe I’ve got it wrong. Maybe you tell it when you’re walking and when you’ve stopped for a donut? :-)

  • Red is correct. You enter your average gait like in a real pedometer, and calibrate pace (steps/second) before or during the exercise. You press a key when you start walking, you press a key when you stop for a donut. If you try the free demo, you’ll see that it’s very simple.
    Granted, the real pedometer senses starting/stopping automatically, but it doesn’t cost 4.99 and you can’t make phone calls on it. And then there’s the coolness factor…

  • …aboslutely, the coolness factor. :-)
