iphone 5 pedometer app questions
Does anyone have recommendations for an iphone pedometer app?
And do the pedometer apps use data and can they run in the background all day?
I realize these may sound like stupid questions, but I have tried searching and cannot find info.

I use this one. Pedometer apps (unless otherwise stated in the description) do not use data for the actual pedometer function. Pedometer apps use the accelerometer to estimate steps. The app below does track your GPS location and plots it on a map, so that portion does use data.

I've seen more and more articles that mention "10,000 steps a day", and was just curious about how many steps I take on an average day.
GPS-based apps don't work well at my job site, so an app that uses the accelerometer sounds like the next best thing.
I'd like the app to run all day long (from when I start it in the morning until I stop it at night). Not sure there's enough iPhone battery for GPS-based apps to do that? Figured I'd an iPhone appt for awhile to see if I'm interested in the data enough to justify buying a dedicated device, like a Fitbit or Jawbone UP.

The app I linked you to is relatively power conservative. I'm running it 24/7 (there is no stop/go) and it works. Might be overkill for your uses since it includes the GPS stuff. But the step count is remarkably accurate.
