Get a Pedometer on the iOS 8 Lock Screen

Pedometers can be simple devices, delivering just one number: total step count for the day. Now thanks to the iPhone motion coprocessor, the tweak Stepper 2 brings this simplicity to iOS 8. Owners of a jailbroken iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus can utilize Stepper 2 to count steps in style.

iOS 8.1 jailbreak step count

Once installed, the tweak shows the current step count directly in the lock screen and on the iOS 8 status bar. This display of information can be customized in Settings. In addition to counting steps, Stepper can send daily reminder notifications at a particular time.

A daily goal can also be set, with Stepper sending a notification when the goal is reached. Of course, since the M7 or M8 motion coprocessor is required, users of Stepper must keep the iPhone somewhere on their person for steps to be registered in the tweak. Devices older than the iPhone 5s lack the motion coprocessor, and are not compatible with Stepper.

Stepper 2 (iOS 8) is available from the BigBoss repository on Cydia for $1.00. To start customizing iOS, click here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8.1 with Pangu.
