Pedometer++ Uses The M7 Chip To Count Your Steps

pedoplusplus

Want to check out the new M7 MoCoPro in your iPhone 5, but don’t have an app to do it? Then check out David Smith’s Pedometer++, a free app which grabs data from the low-power motion-tracking chip and shows it to you.

Pedometer++ is really just a kind of proof of concept, although you can totally use it as a step counter. The app shows you two totals: today’s steps, and a running count for the past week. It can also display a live step count on the app’s home-screen icon, but that seems to be a rather stressful feature.

I have said before that I think the M7 is going to be a big deal, giving almost battery-free location and tracking data to any app that needs it, and this is a nice start. I wonder what we’ll see when the photo and fitness app developers get ahold of it?

    Why on God’s Green Earth would anybody EVER call their app Pedometer? What are they smoking? O.o

    Otherwise, neat little utility.

    Seriously? That is what a step counter is called. Don’t think they’re smoking anything….

    lol’d at the guy who didn’t know it was actually called a pedometer.

    it’s cool that even though i’ve just installed it, it’s still told me what i’ve walked today/over the last week
