    Running is the cheapest way to get some exercise. You don’t need to spend 100s of dollars on equipment or a gym subscription. Plus, you can sync Runkeeper with Achievement and earn money on the side while doing your daily run.

    Pacer pedometer is such a nice app to keep track of your daily fitness goals. This app helps count your every step so that you'll have an idea of the distance you travelled in a day. For starters, you can set your step counter goal to 8000 per day.

    This app is great. I did Weight Watchers and lost 60 pounds, and though I'm not currently trying to lose weight, I still love seeing how many steps I take. Even though it's not nearly as many as I should, it's still a great way to track them.

    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

    Great Experience. Extremely motivating. I would ofcourse ask the app developers to make it fair and competitive. They must put filters for participants to be in their league. It is only fair for people who walk 10000steps every day to not participate in the 6000steps and people who walk 6000 steps each day not to participate in the 3000 steps category. Ofcourse it's an ethical issue though. Also a senior citizens category above 60 or 65 years should also be created.

    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!!!

    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.

    UPDATE: instructions on how to configure Android to not interfere with step counting functions seem to have worked. Step count display update is a little wonky though, it does not happen smoothly. . . . Worked OK on Android 6.0, but under Android 10, it has not worked correctly a single day. Some days, count is 0, for example, today, walked and rode bike for an hour, it counted 700 steps. Previously, that would have been 4500-6000 steps. Completely unreliable.

    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 used to love this. i hate the new update. it is not tracking all of my steps. if I am on my phone walking it doesn't track, it doesn't track unless my arms are swing if in my hand or if I walk hard. I do not stomp when I walk and it doesn't pick up my light steps. I can't even change the sensitivity. Update 4/22/21 this new update seems good

    My daughter suggested this app to help me get over the loss of my puppy of 11 1/2 years. She said I needed to move and not mope. She’s right. My puppy died on Tuesday night. I stayed in all day Wednesday and started walking Thursday evening and continued yesterday, Friday. I walked 2 miles yesterday and enjoyed looking at progress along the way. I could have quit anywhere along the way but the app helped to push me to reach a goal. Tonight I will walk further and I hope to reach the goal of walking 5 miles eventually. My puppy didn’t like to walk so I’ve been sedentary for a long time with just short little walks with her. I went out today and got some comfortable socks to wear with my sneakers and I’m looking forward to my third walk in about an hour. Last night my husband walked with me and we had a good time encouraging each other. I’m not crying anymore and feeling good. Exercise is just what I needed. I just turned 73 on Christmas Day and my husband turned 74 on December 1 and we’re looking to many more years of walking.

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

    ~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! ~:)

    Less than optimal for Android. With Google and Samsung options that work natively and much better no real reason to use an inferior product. There are still inconsistencies with the step counting though the instructions have gotten better.
  • 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.

    Doesn't record your steps if your on the phone, even if your on headphones and the phone is in the pocket which makes it kinder useless to be honest. Doesn't link up to my fitness pal either which was the only reason I downloaded it. Wouldn't recommend to be honest
  • 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.

    Pacer is great IF... You want or need to lose weight, track your steps and workouts as you go, get a personal coach to help you and connect to other health apps. However, if you need to gain weight, or try to set your goal to that, their “Coach” will tell you that Pacer is a walking, weight-loss program, and they can’t help you... then NEVER say another word to you!! I decided to stay, for the tracking and the community, but the coach doesn’t coach, several key features are “premium members only”, such as Calories Burned/Day. Even my own Activity and History Log is blocked from view. I loved the idea of personalized coaching, and would happily be Premium, if I could use ALL the features. The community is AWESOME; friendly and supportive and there are weekly and monthly Challenges to keep you motivated. Pacer also lets you set personal daily goals, and post your progress, frustrations and successes. Overall, a really good Fitness/ Walking App, to get fit and track workouts, or lose weight, but not especially helpful for those who are trying to gain weight.
  • 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.
  • Upset and out of money Aug 21, 2019

    By notsoartsyartstudent
    I haven’t even been able to utilize this app and I’m already annoyed and upset with it. I’m on a workout kick (again but that’s irrelevant) and I wanted to try out multiple apps to see which I like best, especially those that had membership programs that could help me keep on track during this upcoming chapter of life I call college. Like the others I signed up for a free trial. However unlike the others before I could even allow location services, I HAD BEEN CHARGED $32 for the annual subscription. So like a normal human I am very confused as to how free=$32. I have since requested a refund but at the same time this less than five minute situation has made me not even want to use the app and that’s why for the second time (yes the second. I used the free version for a while about a year or so ago) I have deleted it off my phone.

    I love this app! You control how personal or private you want your account to be. I love the challenges in this app. It has helped me so much in just less than a month to accomplish goals and movements I wasn’t thinking about before. I’m in competition with only myself, but this app has helped me take accountability for myself and my physical activity. This app gives me structure. Before I was sedentary, and didn’t realize how much damage I was causing myself. I’m an old Air Force vet that is more motivated now to continue staying active! Seeing so many others being involved and so active keeps me determined that I can do it to and that I will do it too! Thanks Pacer app! I don’t have the premium package and don’t plan on getting it anytime soon, but I love it without it too. Hopefully in the future I will be able to get the premium package.

    Great Experience. Extremely motivating. I would ofcourse ask the app developers to make it fair and competitive. They must put filters for participants to be in their league. It is only fair for people who walk 10000steps every day to not participate in the 6000steps and people who walk 6000 steps each day not to participate in the 3000 steps category. Ofcourse it's an ethical issue though. Also a senior citizens category above 60 or 65 years should also be created.

    Great user friendly app. It gives you how many steps we'd, how much calorie burn, and the length of time. I've this app. One of the best.
  • Easy to use; great motivator! Aug 10, 2019

    By lb.Foolish
    Love this app! Can use it for just walking around the house to track steps per day and calories burned, or set it up for a workout with gps so I can see an accurate distance/time/speed walked. (It doesn’t eat up my data for this either!) It’s amazing to look at total distance walked since I first started using the app til now (Dec. 2016-Feb. 2018) and see that I’ve racked up over 1,450 MILES (and well over 3.2 MILLION steps! :) When I first got the app, I had a very old phone that I couldn’t update, and Pacer was the ONLY pedometer app I could find that would work on it. I would, very rarely, have it crash and lose that day’s data- very frustrating, but otherwise loved it, and grateful I had it. Since updating to a new phone (and version of the Pacer app), I haven’t experienced ANY crashing! Thank you, Pacer, for creating a wonderful, stable app! It’s been a big part of my weight loss and fitness efforts, and I will gladly credit you for motivation in helping me lose about 30 lbs.! (Just 10 lbs. left to go!) ;)

    I love this app. It allows you to set goals at an achievable pace and gives an accurate account of what you are eating and burning off. I was unaware of how low my iron intake was until I started this app. I began taking a supplement and I have so much more energy now. I would recommend getting this app. along with a pedometer app. if you are just starting out with trying to get healthier. You can add your exercise into the plan and account for the calories burned during workouts which is such an incentive to me. I was not over weight to begin with, I just wanted to feel healthier and more energized. I can say without a doubt that I have achieved both goals. I only have the free version and that has been enough for me. I know there is a lot more this app. has to offer with a subscription, but the free version is so great that I think everyone should try it. You can even scan items right at the store!! This app. is so great I can’t say enough. 🤐
  • 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.
  • Pacer pedometer Jun 6, 2020

    By donjackdan
    I like Pacer a lot better than the pedometer that came standard on my iPhone. My iPhone only updates irregularly, that is I can walk for 25 minutes and the number of steps won’t change. Later it will jump to a new value, but only when it feels like it. Pacer updates as you walk. The only negative is that it doesn’t take into account the length of a person’s stride. So my wife and I walk for three miles together, but Pacer says that I walked 2.6 miles on my iPhone, while my wife’s phone says that she walked nearly 4 miles. We both walked the exact same distance, but she has shorter legs and she took many more shorter steps. I like that it gives the proper amount of steps that we each took, but it should also take into consideration the average length of our strides so that our mileage would be close to the same.
  • Great with iphone 6, but don't use with iPhone 4 or 5 Apr 20, 2018

    By AppUser SR
    I love this app and use it on my iPhone 6 to track all my steps to improve my health. But when I got one of the regular app upgrades on my iPhone 4S it periodically stopped working while I was walking. I'd walk more than 1,500 steps but the count didn't change at all. It got a little better when I shut down the badges and all other notifications, but it still locked up on the count at least once a day. After deleting this from my iPhone 4s I got a new iPhone 6 a couple months later. After reading some other reviews about the issues with 4s specifically, I decided to try it again on the new phone. Glad I did because it works much better on the 6. Still upset that the software developers left the 4s for dead, or else I would give it 5 stars.

    By David Tomlinson
    UPDATE: instructions on how to configure Android to not interfere with step counting functions seem to have worked. Step count display update is a little wonky though, it does not happen smoothly. . . . Worked OK on Android 6.0, but under Android 10, it has not worked correctly a single day. Some days, count is 0, for example, today, walked and rode bike for an hour, it counted 700 steps. Previously, that would have been 4500-6000 steps. Completely unreliable.

    i used to love this. i hate the new update. it is not tracking all of my steps. if I am on my phone walking it doesn't track, it doesn't track unless my arms are swing if in my hand or if I walk hard. I do not stomp when I walk and it doesn't pick up my light steps. I can't even change the sensitivity. Update 4/22/21 this new update seems good

    By K.Jyotirmayee pattnaik
    If the phone is in pocket and you are jogging probably it doesn't count your steps. My almost 2 km were uncounted at the end.. and always need to keep a eye on it if it's working or not.
  • 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.
  • Not Accurate Oct 26, 2018

    By supernano
    The app interface is intuitive and easy to use. I like that it stores all my walks and routes. I find it motivating to compare my walks to see improvement. The problem I have is the accuracy of the distance. I’ve driven my route as well as checked my route distance on Google Earth. Either my truck and Google are incorrect or this app is off. The distance shown on the app is consistently short. My wife’s UA app shows our walk distance to be accurate. I have not tried the community stuff, so can’t comment on that. Overall the app works smoothly. If you’re concerned about tracking accurate distances then this might not be for you. I’m more interested in the amount of time I exercise and being able to log routes which this does.

    By Jesse Miller
    Less than optimal for Android. With Google and Samsung options that work natively and much better no real reason to use an inferior product. There are still inconsistencies with the step counting though the instructions have gotten better.
  • 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.

    Doesn't record your steps if your on the phone, even if your on headphones and the phone is in the pocket which makes it kinder useless to be honest. Doesn't link up to my fitness pal either which was the only reason I downloaded it. Wouldn't recommend to be honest
  • 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.

    Pacer is great IF... You want or need to lose weight, track your steps and workouts as you go, get a personal coach to help you and connect to other health apps. However, if you need to gain weight, or try to set your goal to that, their “Coach” will tell you that Pacer is a walking, weight-loss program, and they can’t help you... then NEVER say another word to you!! I decided to stay, for the tracking and the community, but the coach doesn’t coach, several key features are “premium members only”, such as Calories Burned/Day. Even my own Activity and History Log is blocked from view. I loved the idea of personalized coaching, and would happily be Premium, if I could use ALL the features. The community is AWESOME; friendly and supportive and there are weekly and monthly Challenges to keep you motivated. Pacer also lets you set personal daily goals, and post your progress, frustrations and successes. Overall, a really good Fitness/ Walking App, to get fit and track workouts, or lose weight, but not especially helpful for those who are trying to gain weight.
  • Upset and out of money Aug 21, 2019

    By notsoartsyartstudent
    I haven’t even been able to utilize this app and I’m already annoyed and upset with it. I’m on a workout kick (again but that’s irrelevant) and I wanted to try out multiple apps to see which I like best, especially those that had membership programs that could help me keep on track during this upcoming chapter of life I call college. Like the others I signed up for a free trial. However unlike the others before I could even allow location services, I HAD BEEN CHARGED $32 for the annual subscription. So like a normal human I am very confused as to how free=$32. I have since requested a refund but at the same time this less than five minute situation has made me not even want to use the app and that’s why for the second time (yes the second. I used the free version for a while about a year or so ago) I have deleted it off my phone.
  • I Recommend Pacer App Feb 21, 2021

    By KARINALATINA
    I love this app! You control how personal or private you want your account to be. I love the challenges in this app. It has helped me so much in just less than a month to accomplish goals and movements I wasn’t thinking about before. I’m in competition with only myself, but this app has helped me take accountability for myself and my physical activity. This app gives me structure. Before I was sedentary, and didn’t realize how much damage I was causing myself. I’m an old Air Force vet that is more motivated now to continue staying active! Seeing so many others being involved and so active keeps me determined that I can do it to and that I will do it too! Thanks Pacer app! I don’t have the premium package and don’t plan on getting it anytime soon, but I love it without it too. Hopefully in the future I will be able to get the premium package.
  • Meh... Aug 8, 2019

    By Devan_xx
    I spent 35 $ for a year on this app only to realize I could’ve gotten free apps that do the same. In order to view your progress on an exercise (run/walk) you need to open your phone as it doesn’t display a thing on the locked screen. At times the app ends my exercise, without me doing so, while I’m in the middle of a run. As well as not alerting me to this so I’ll finish a 3 mile run only to see its tracked only 2 miles. The app displays a lot of data but fails to allow you to view a previous day of data and only gives you 7 day, 30 day, 6 month, and year averaged. The app provides a graph that shows your daily steps so far, for that day only, but due to the labels (time and steps) having such a large increment, you are unable to really gather accurate times/step. Further, the app fails to allow users to select the bars in the graph to show the actual steps and at what actual time they were taken. When users complete an exercise that is not recorded on the gps feature (yoga, body weight work outs) and put in manually the app fails to count that towards users “activity level.” As well as not counting the actual exercises that it provides outside of the gps feature.
  • Secondary spyware app ? Mar 20, 2021

    By alexjohnson1
    This app is great, records details of my every moment when I take walks (always with my dog), literally every step you take and puts it on a map and more. I would have given it 5 stars had it not requested my entire contact list in order to share my path and location to one or two “safety”contacts. Requesting access to my entire contact list to a group of strangers is inherently unsafe and disrespectful to these people on that list. Why does it need all 400 contacts ? To sell to Facebook or some other data mining company ? For that reason I give it 2 Stars and cannot recommend it - it could be acting as spyware and data mining secondary to its primary function as tracking your every movement. There should be a way to add one contact without giving out my entire contact list.
  • 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! ~:)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Not good for Apple Watch Feb 22, 2020

    By TarynMayer
    I got this app because I thought it would send push alerts/reminders and the built in activity tracker for the Apple Watch didn’t do that. For several days while using the app I was getting super upset because I couldn’t reach my step goal no matter how hard I tried. Finally, after a week I cross checked with the built in activity tracker and it was a few thousand more than pacer. So I watched it the next day and pacer would literally jump back and forth. One minute I’d have 9,000 then the next I’d have 7,000. I thought maybe it was syncing to my phone, but I double checked and it is not. It never synced up properly to the watch, it gives no added benefit of using it over the built in tracker. It doesn’t send push notifications for alerts or anything like I initially thought, it’s highly inaccurate and quite honestly...useless.
