    Hi all,

    I'd like to announce Marcher, a step counter Apple Watch complication.

    IMG_0893.jpg IMG_0894.jpg

    I couldn't find a simple watch complication that showed steps with a nice icon, so here is Marcher. It shows steps every day and resets overnight for the next day. Updates occur every 10-20 minutes and use the internal step counter of the watch, so do not rely on your phone being available. There are similar complications available on all watch face types. As updates occur, they are loaded in to time travel, so you can look back over the day and see previous step counts.

    The app lists at $1.99 and is available in the app store now. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/marcher/id1053711438?mt=8.

    Feedback is appreciated. If you do get the app, and see any problems, I'd love to hear from you before you post negative feedback. There are a couple bad reviews on the app store, but the beta testers liked the app and it worked well for them.

    To start things off, here are 5 promo codes. You know the rules... please post up if you use a code so others know.

    6KRA6MY4RJTL - Used
    A9YXT3LWXPJH - Used
    XNK47WFPHTFK - Used
    PWMM6X4FPH36 - Used
    H7KPW34J7NP4 - Used

    Thanks for checking out Marcher!

    An update was just released. If anyone has trouble with the remaining codes, let me know and I'll replace them.

    Had this for a couple of days now and it works very well with no problems encountered.

    Good App!

    Hi Frisbee, the codes are all used already.

    Normally, to use a code, you can use the app store app, on the Featured page, scroll to the bottom and pick the Redeem button.

    Do you need any additional testers. I've tried a few of the step counters for complications and none of them have worked very well so I am hesitant to spend $1.99 for just a single feature

    Not immediately, but if you have some questions or problems with other apps we can discuss it here. The couple complaints I've seen have related to not getting step updates. I suspect this comes from wanting steps to update as you walk, which isn't currently supported by Apple. The fastest you can update steps on a watch face is approximately 10 minutes currently. I think some people get frustrated when they look at step apps and find they don't see them update in the first couple minutes.

    Unfortunately, there also seem to have been some install and update bugs in early versions of Apple WatchOS which did cause updates not to occur or installs not to be success. This lead to some early problems with app reliability.

    Thanks for the report. Is that on watchOS Beta 3? I suspect problems there, as Apple has changed the update mechanism. It's good news if it is working.

    Yes, double check in the apps that your footprint shows up in watch apps on the watch app screen.

    There's a small update on the app store, iPhone app shows distance in localized units now. m & km for metric areas and ft & miles for english based unit areas.

    just purchased and installed, the iPhone app just shuts down as soon as I open it, so far the only thing populating on my watch complication is the footprint icon, if I tap on the icon it says "Today's steps by the hour updating..."

    Also I don't see Marcher in my iPhone Motion & Fitness permissions, should it be?

    I had another report of that on an I7 plus, what device are you using? What version of iOS?
