Tracking Your Movement? 4+ Free Android Pedometer Apps You Should have

Thanks to the advancement in technology related to hardware and software of a smartphone, we now can do almost everything a computer can do, right on our smartphone. In fact, there are various things which now our smartphones can do which a computer can only dream of. After all, we cannot move with our desktop in the bag pack or run carrying a laptop, no matter how lightweight it is.

That’s the thing I want to talk about today. You love running and that’s the first good thing about you. But, you can earn a second best thing by using your smartphone to track your running and walking activities. It will help you keep a daily data which you can monitor and tweak the results accordingly.

An application or a device that can track your running is commonly named as Pedometer. Earlier, there were specific gadgets developed to do this thing, but now since we have our smartphone with the same capability, we don’t need to buy those dedicated gadgets.

But, most of the smartphone doesn’t come with a software application which can make use of the hardware present inside. Thanks to the Android’s ecosystem, we are allowed to install any well-configured application and if your device is eligible to use Google’s ecosystem, then you can grab those apps right from the Google play store.
