iPhone app review for Sound Pedometer GPS Lite










Today I downloaded and test drove the Sound Pedometer GPS Lite App for the iPhone and iPod touch. This actually works pretty well. But I couldn't get it to work right away. You kinda have to give it a bit. You also kinda have to play around with the sensetivity to get it just right for you. I tried it indoors so it wouldn't be using the GPS as much to really see how accurate it was. I was actually impressed. Everyone at work got a laugh out of me walking around with this thing making a noise every time I took a step too. I was using the cartoon tone.

The lite version doesn't store history or do any other kind of measurement except for steps. But it was pretty cool. A pretty basic app. The sounds do get a bit annoying after a while but you can turn that off.

You can get the full app for $2.99 USD and get the options to save your walk, maps, distance, history and more.

But if your just wanted to know how many steps you have taken the lite is all you really need. So check it out and if you like go for the full version. I am going to run this for a test tomorrow at work inside a metal building that gets no GPS signal. Wish me luck.

Please Note :
The main function of this application is pedometer.
It works without GPS device or GPS reception.
When iPhone receives GPS signal, a red dot on
'step' screen movies on a circlre. If a red dot
doesn't move at all, this means GPS signal doesn't
reach iPhone. In other words this application
can't show correct speed, distance and location.
