The pedometer can group your activity into workouts. You decide when to start, pause, reset and save your workout. Normally Footsteps will stop detecting steps when you pause or finish the workout, you can change this in Settings and let Footsteps capture the steps even if the workout is paused/not started. You will see your activity in Today view, but the steps won't be added to the active workout. You can also turn off workouts completely and let Footsteps capture your steps whenever the app is running (Settings -> Use Workouts switch to OFF).

History of Your Activity

History module lets you browse your activity. You can see your workouts or all activity in or outside workouts grouped by days, weeks and months. Tap on the groups until you see a single workout or day worth of activities and you will see them broken down to a list of samples of activities. You can add, edit or delete any of the samples. You can delete any workout or a whole day from History. You can share the items in History by Email (with CSV attachment), SMS, Twitter or Facebook.
