  • Great app—better than before Oct 17, 2020

    By Regular scanner
    Whatever bug there was before has long been fixed. This app is fantastic, so disregard the negatives from my previous review and only pay attention to the positives! OLD REVIEW: I love this app! When I first started using it I would set my goal to at least 10,000 steps a day and could keep track of how many steps I was getting in when I would walk my dog, go to the gym, and walk around at work. It was great! I was so proud of myself when I would get to 10,000, 15,000 and then a record of 18,000 steps. So then I tried to beat my record and just the other day got up to over 21,000 steps. The only problem is that the next day when I was looking at my monthly average I saw that my 21,000-step day shot down to zero! What?! I thought maybe my phone just needed to be restarted so I tried that, opened up the app again and yep--sure enough, it still said zero steps for that day. Same thing happened the next day; my 10,000 steps turned to zero when I referred back to it. So I thought I was done with this app but then just today my steps reappeared! So I guess my only complaint is that the steps sometimes disappear for a few days and then magically appear again. It would be really nice if they could work that out--then it would be a five-star app all the way.

    I love this app. It allows you to log outside activity of pretty much any kind. Only thing I wish it would add was a “chores” option for housework but I can see why they can’t do that, it’s too broad and unpredictable. However it has everything I personally need to work out right now!! I’m pretty out of shape, 80lbs above the highest healthy weight for someone my height. I’m starting out with the novice stretches, and I’m doing the yoga sequences in the calm app. The calm app is great too and it does log my exercise, but I like logging it into pacer because then it’s all in one spot. Love having the pedometer. The work out videos are really good. I love it!! I was ready to pay for the subscription after my first three days of using it and after a month, I can’t say I regret it!! I’m going to buy the yearly subscription next. This is an essential app for me, I wouldn’t be where I am in my workout journey without it!! I’ve done yoga over half the days in this month. I went from never working out, to nearly working out every single day!!! Thanks pacer!!! I can’t wait to start exploring their higher level exercises (and I LOVE that they categorize them so you know what you’re getting into). They give helpful and thoroughly suggestions on how to meet your goals... basically... it’s perfect!!!

    Use this App to check my KoreTrak watch. This App also maps my daily walks. If you're doing Pacer Challenges it will automatically update your progress. Very happy with it. You have to turn off the 5 minute interval verbal notifications they become a bit irritating, especially if you're listening to a Podcast whilst exercising.

  • Believe it or not.... Dec 27, 2018

    By Sandinista50958
    This is my first ever, from the heart comment in my 40 yrs, so please be gentle with the comments. 😋 This app has been a great tool for me in the 2-3 months since I downloaded it. It’s really great for keeping me motivated, even when I’m ready to quit and give up. I don’t really know why, but this app is great for implementing life changes (at least so far 😉). From what I’m told, these changes will be the foundation to my weight loss and success thereof(?). Not to mention what I can’t do with this app, I can easily do on other apps. PERK - they all easily link together AND THE BEST PART is that the apps will communicate with each other and share info with each other. Using the apps together to review results in text, graph, charts, theories, suggestions, etc., I’ve been able to see my strengths & weaknesses in not only my health, but life patterns as well. I find myself mostly empowered to make these changes as a single parent of 4, FT-employee, friend and so on. And when I just want to throw my hands up in the air and say “f” it all, together, but still at different times, these four apps’ messages become more encouraging and I find the willpower to get back up on the horse (I suppose that would be the scale in this case🧐). This app, (and the others) is a total 5 star app to me.

    Great app! Use it every day. Very pleased with the results and the tracking records it keeps. Would suggest that the Backup and Recovery processes be updated to allow multiple copies. That is, when a new Backup is made, if there is an earlier copy, create a new Backup with the name appended with the date and have it copied to an available iCloud or personal cloud drive. And during Recovery, allow the selection of which Backup record you’d like used for the Recovery from either the local phone data, iCloud or personal cloud drive! Why? Because I just lost 9 months of data because my phone was destroyed. I got the phone recovered late at night a few days ago from an old phone backup made in January (so all data between Jan and Sep was gone) and when I selected Recovery, the only file available was done during the night (after my phone Recovery, but before Recovery of the Pacer data). Therefore, the only Recovery file available was the one written during the night that overwrote the earlier one, and the new file was missing the Jan-Sep data. My fault ... true. But allowing penultimate backup copies would have allowed me to get all that data back regardless. Super happy otherwise!!!

    I have used the app to complete 2 trails.. the 2nd one i paid for and then surprised with the fact i couldnt do the trail unless i paid premium which if i had been told this id not have done a second one. Then once completed the 2nd trail my pedometer stopped working. If i cancel my subscription am i still going to recieve both medals as i havent got the 1st one yet either??. I did enjoy the app seeing pictures along the route you had chosen made it little more fun for me and my daughter

    Can't connect to my Samsung galaxy watch 3. I installed this app because I had bought a virtual challenge on website. But it's not fun at all to input all my running activities manually. You are losing a lot of potential users because of this "no samsung" policy. Otherwise the app looks great. I would even pay for it if I could pair with my watch.

  • Pacer App is Great for stepping! Apr 15, 2018

    By 🔥Jerimy🔥
    ~There needs to be improvement on privacy and who follows you etc, there are to many anonymous people with fake names and fake profiles and no real pic, I would like to choose who can follow my post and who can not! Also, you should be able to delete your own account yourself if you ever need to for any reason like all the other apps allow you to do. We should not have to email pacer and beg for assistance in removal of our own account. I also think also people should only be allowed in only one group to be listed on their page, to many people jump in And out of groups all month long and mess up teams. And also they never remove their self when they join a new team, which again messed up things when the weekly stats come in. I also think there needs to be a daily step count limit shut off, for example people getting 70k plus daily ARE RIDING BIKES and cheating and it discourages the real people walking daily. That is humanly impossible! That is frustrating for the real walkers. I see this conversation a lot! Over all it is a good app but it needs some adjustments to keep making it better!!!! I hope you all read my suggestions thank you for your time! ~:)

  1. Walk off the calories with this built-in pedometer. Counts steps, tracks GPS activity and syncs with other apps
  2. Easy to use features accurately inform you based on your personal style. Personalized because no two people walk alike
  3. Stay motivated by creating walking groups or competing in events. It’s always easier when you don’t do it alone

    The one thing I wish this app would do that I miss about Samsung health is stopping the timer when it detects you've stopped moving (I walk as my form of exercise, and the Samsung app stopped when you stopped, and resumes when it senses you're moving again). Other than that, it's a good app.

  • An app of great precision but with undeveloped potential. Sep 29, 2018

    By Kyleoke
    This app gives you an accurate calorie burn by putting the “intensity of steps”, age, height, weight and even perhaps, the temperature of the environment(at least I noticed the difference) into consideration/calculation. Despite, the app put these factors into good use of calculating the total calorie burn, I still believe this app have some space to improve to be universal; No. 1, if the app already asked for your height, age and weight for calculating a precise rate of calorie burn by walking or running, why cant they use the information they just gathered from you to give you a basal metabolism rate too?(calorie burn a day without doing nothing)Therefore, by adding the basal metabolism rate to your calorie burn through pacing or running can give you a “real” total calorie burn per day.(Which is practical for you to monitoring your weight loss)No.2, I know this might sound silly, but, if its possible, by adding food’s calorie information to this app will also be great to monitor the weight loss.( all you have to do is minus the “total calorie burn” to food’s calorie count) No.3, Just kidding, there is no No. 3 advise to add. Anyway, if pacer can achieved these 2 improvement, pacer will most likely be more effective and popular!!

  • GPS issues while recording outdoor activities Oct 11, 2018

    By Seth141sethhalloween
    I’ve been having an issue where the GPS glitches and thinks I’ve travelled to another location. On the map it usually appears as a straight line to the incorrect location, because it’s thinking I was somewhere else. It invalidates my recorded info because it suddenly says I’ve walked 3 miles when I’ve really only walked 0.4 or something. I really hope this gets fixed, or that you allow us to edit our recorded walks. We should be able to grab sections of a walk and delete them if they’re invalid. Like, sometimes I’ve forgot to disable recording and once I’m in my car. Then me driving home ruins my time/mile pacing, and distance recorded. If I could delete that section it would be fine. Also my voiceover has started saying “10 minutes ONE SECOND” instead of just 10 minutes, 15 minutes, etc,. Not a problem, just different and odd.

  • Needs more accuracy Mar 24, 2019

    By Word Girll
    Update: It tells you 10,000 steps is your goal and ignorantly I followed when I should have looked it up in miles. Big mistake - I pushed myself to 7,000 steps one day and have lot of pain and swelling in left leg that has not gone away. It’s like a knot of veins that have formed. Painful to sleep. Must see doc. Basically - start slow. Don’t push it unless you’re super healthy. I’m 49, not obese but could lose 20 pounds. I should have not pushed to achieve 10K Syria - app should say what that translates to. Old review: I have been using it couple weeks now. My friend and I compete. So it’s been fun to track each other. However I just did a 2 mile Leslie Sansone video and it says I only did 1.3 miles. So who should I believe? -Also, it’s missing several of my workout days from activity history? Not cool man, I worked hard on those days. -Are the steps based on the height? I’m only 5’1, have to take more steps to reach certain goals so hopefully the standard step chart I’m using via internet is adjusted for this app measurement. Do you guys have your own chart based on people’s heights?

  • Constant ad for “premium” is obnoxious May 30, 2020

    By Levi770421
    I downloaded this app recently so I could monitor the steps I take at work to obtain a more accurate picture of my activity that includes both intentional walks and “passive” walking at other times. PROS: I was able to get a more accurate picture of my activity and compare work week to weekend activity. CONS: A pop-up ad to upgrade to the premium service has to be cleared every time I want to look at historical data. (You do get a few moments to look at the current number of steps.) There is no obvious way to clear it with out closing the app and I end up spending double the time to access information. DEVELOPERS: Your decision to have view blocking, time consuming pop up ads for your premium service continuously load is the reason for a 3 star rating and the deletion of your app from my iPhone XR. I understand that you make your money from the premium services, and I purchase premium content and services when the free version proves useful. However, when the free app is rendered useless or obnoxious, I don’t reward developers by purchasing their premium services. I delete and let others know of my experience. There are so many options available for iPhone users, and I exercise my right to choose.

  • It’s fine, when it works May 31, 2020

    By Pookius
    Unfortunately, it doesn’t track data consistently. If I work out with friends, even if we’re doing the same route, we will show radically different times or even distances. There have been times our distances have been off as much as 3/10 mile, even though our devices showed we were on pace with each other. Pacer will also retroactively change data weeks after the fact. Steps will drop. Distances will drop. Calories will drop. That makes engaging in any of the competitions useless. I went from well over 10,000 steps on one day (I *always* get 10,000 steps per day) to fewer than 5,000 steps registered on the same day over two weeks later. It’s definitely not worth the subscription.

  • Great app....When it works. Jul 19, 2019

    By Pacer User No More
    I’ve compared to apple watches for the total amount of steps per day. A friend had 10,000+ steps for the day with an Apple Watch and I only had a little over 3,000. We had been together ALL day and should have been within 25 steps of one another (that’s on the very high end). However, I just noted that if I had 3,000 steps according to Pacer, I had been pretty active that day. Plus, the live tracking for walking was great.....until it wasn’t. I walked over 2 miles 3 days in a row and each day my totals were 0.0 miles miles. I was walking the exact same route I have been walking for over two weeks! After walking two miles in 28 minutes and having the app say I walked NO where and burned 1 calorie, that is unacceptable. I emailed the help center and they told me I should look in my settings to make sure I had the location services turned on. Really? No kidding.... This isn’t the first time this has happened. Before, I simply deleted the app and downloaded again after a few hours. Though it worked last time, it isn’t now. You shouldn’t have to do that anyway. Deleting the app for good this time.

  • Mediocre at best Aug 16, 2020

    By Veggie girl 45678
    The app works reasonably well as a community fitness app. The main issue is it only counts stops you take with your phone. I was trying to figure out how so sync with an activity tracker, since I don’t carry my phone for at least half of my daily activity. I found that pacer doesn’t think fitness trackers are reliable - therefore you can’t use the steps from them with the app. The statement from pacer said something along the lines of “everyone always has their phone in their pocket all day anyway.” As a woman, most of my clothing does not have pockets. My professional/work clothes don’t have pockets and my casual/yoga pants don’t have pockets. So I have to carry my phone in my hand, which I don’t do most of the day when I’m waking around taking care of things. My Fitbit will regularly read double the steps in the pacer app. Even if the Fitbit is less reliable for actual step tracking, it has to be closer to a reliable count since my phone isn’t with me for half of my steps. The way it is currently designed, this app is kind of useless to me.

  • Useless. Jul 28, 2018

    By Keslie Baldwin
    This app had worked fine when I had an iPhone 5c, but when I upgraded to an iPhone 8 Plus, it does not live up to its expectations. Every time I open up the app, it sits there like it is loading but it is not, which in return causes me to close out of the app completely and start over. I have not been able to make it pass the Pacer screen, whenever I go to press returning user and hit the ‘continue with Facebook’ option it does the same thing again causing me to restart the app again. However, when I restart the app, it does not do a single thing to fix it. I am honestly very disappointed by how long I was using this app on my other phone with no problem verses using my newer version. If an IOS 11 is not capable of working with this version of Pacer then you should really put that in your capabilities section of your app. Otherwise, you will get bad reviews on this type of thing, fix this and I will give you five stars, if you do not then I will have no other choice but to delete this app on my phone and look elsewhere for another app that can meet my expectations.

  • App rage here so buyer beware! Mar 26, 2018

    By Lil Beau's Peeps 😁
    I really don’t like trying to find a decent app to help people with this major epidemic only to find out AFTER adding all of their personal info that it will cost them an arm and a leg for a program that u can get for free by another company. If u are going to charge people gthen be honest right from the top. I-phones already track steps so why should we have to pay for it?!?!?! Also maybe we should think about going after all the processed food companies that made their wallets fat for years while creating very unhealthy families! Their solution was to make Oreos smaller and charge more or my personal favorite is to wait until we have an epidemic and THEN offer a low- fat alternative but for double the price!! If people are willing to change their eating habits then I say let Nabisco pay for it! Just like the cigarette companies had to start paying for cancer treatment!

  • Used to work pretty well. Now, not so much. Feb 10, 2018

    By DavidBijur
    This used to be a great app: it accurately calculated distance and pace, and it has a decent online community. Throw in perks such as height, weight, heart rate and BMI into a synopsis of your daily workout, you had a great Jack of All Trades. This, unfortunately, is in the past: the accuracy is shot. For ex: I’ll walk five miles and it will either give me a total read out of three digit steps, or it will multiply my distance between twice and five times the distance. It will also record distance travelled when I’m taking the bus, train or cab - even though I have the setting on Outdoor/Walk/Jog. I have to open up my iPhone X and manually pause it, even though you shouldn’t have to. Stepwise doesn’t necessitate pausing, so I’m not sure why Pacer does. I have sent a couple of messages to the support team, and have not received any response. It truly saddens me to revoke my endorsement.
