Anyone know of a good pedometer app that keeps history ..all the free ones I found are just used to record but have to reset every time giving a shout out to see if anyone else has a free one that they would recommend that keeps track of the walks. Thanks in advance.

It's not a pedometer, but I use the Addias app MiCoach on my iPhone It keeps a history of the distance walked/ran as well as maps of your route. It uses gps to track your exercises. To date, I have walked almost 400 miles since last Mar. It also gives you calories burned.

I'd invest in a good pedometer. one that works in 2 or 3 directions. i keep mine in my pocket and it works really well.

I use runkeeper on my iphone it keeps track and also emails you congratulation when you have gone further than before you can also keep track on the computer with maps, how far, how long, calories, time per k and it is very similar to the breakdown on mfp when you add it in to that. its free give it a go

Cardo Trainer (PRO, paid version). Works very well for me. Keeps track of your walk, run, jog, aerobics, etc... Anything Cardio. Keeps history, works well.

I know there a few good ones but I have downloaded so many fitness apps and looking back am not using half of them so staying away from paid ones since I have wasted enough money on these things without utilizing it.

I like runtastic. It keeps track of your history, mood, weather, map, your duration, pace and distance. it also gives you an icon to play your music that you have on your phone. The other great option is, you can choose an activity. Example: Running, cycling, Mountain Biking, Race Cycling, Nordic Walking, Inline skating, hiking, walking, horse riding, sailing, kayaking, walking, elliptical, treadmill...etc. This is the far best that I have come across...

thanks but like the other apps it has the paid version that has all the goodies I use nike gps+ for run since I can sync it ..thanks for the feedback though !

I use Pedometer Pro and like it a lot although I probably use only a fraction of the features.

I got the runtastic app beacuse it was supposed to sync with MFP but I couldn't get it to sync (said it was all connected but didn't sync) I'm on Android rather than Iphone so maybe that makes a difference :^(

Went back to Accupedo Pedometer which is a great little app (found out about it in a review by the Washington Post) it's free too!
