Ok app Functionality not well explained and the fuctions a bit patronising. Good at counting steps. But had to stop using this app as it was cutting my battery life in half.

More steps than I have walked. This app has potential and could be very good. However it seems to be adding more steps than I have done. I have run it with S Health app and it is currently 1300 more than that.

Battery drain I had to find out for myself and unfortunately the reviews are quite accurate this app just kills my battery life. Installed it this morning at 80% battery-life and have gone down to 18% in five hours. Sorry guys but uninstalled.
