Did you just have your best step day ever? Did you take an amazing photo of your walk? Or do you just want to share your steps with your friends and Pacer group members?

On Pacer for iOS, you can save and share your steps, and add a background photo from your phone in a few simple steps. Here’s how!

NOTE: The sharing process on Android is currently different. See this guide for how to share on Android. The upgraded iOS features will be coming to Android in a future update!

Saving Your Daily Steps:

1. Click the “Camera” Icon

Steps 1

Just click the “Camera” icon on the main screen to take a screenshot of your current day’s progress. All of this info can be added to your screenshot in Pacer!

2. Pick a format/background and post

Steps 2

Choose your format and background

You can swipe left or right to choose your favorite display format. Some formats display calories and active time, while some don’t. Some display options leave the center of the picture free so you can feature your photos.

When you’ve chosen the format you like, click the icon on the top right to select a background photo. Photo backgrounds are optional – you don’t have to add a photo if you don’t want to. If you haven’t given the Pacer App permission to access your photos, you’ll get a pop-up prompting you to grant this access. Select the photo you like best. You can use your fingers to zoom in or out to highlight the part of the photo you want. Once you’re happy with your photo, click “Choose” at the bottom right to select that photo.

Save or post

Now that you have your screenshot, choose what you want to do with it! To post to your Pacer Feed, simply click the “Post to Feed” button at the bottom right. You’ll be sent to the Pacer Feed post screen to complete this process

You can also click “Save” to save a screenshot of this photo. A screenshot will be saved on your phone, and you’ll also receive a prompt to share or post on various social apps. Save the screenshot for later, or post it to your social media account immediately – it’s up to you!

3. Finalize your Pacer Feed post

Steps 3

Write a message to accompany your post. Tell your Pacer followers how you got so many steps, what interesting things you saw during your walk or how you’re feeling. You’ll get more likes with a good description!

You can also add additional photos by clicking the photo icon.

When you’re happy with your post, click “Post” and your amazing screenshot will be posted to your Pacer Feed!

Saving your GPS walk/run

The process for saving your GPS walk or run is very similar to saving your step count, but there are a few more things you have to do. Here’s a walkthrough!

1. Start GPS activity tracking

GPS1

If you want to save your GPS track, you need to track an activity first! Start Pacer’s GPS tracking and then go get active!

2. Finish your GPS activity

GPS2

You’ll need to finish your activity to save your track. When you’re done walking or running, click Finish to get to the next step.

Note: As the name suggests, this will end your activity. If you want to go even farther, wait until you’re done to post!

3. Click the Camera icon to take a screenshot

GPS3

After you click “Finish,” you’ll see the summary of your activity. Click the Camera icon at the top right to save a screenshot of your activity track. You’ll want to do this first before you leave your activity summary to save you from having to go through more steps later on.

4. Pick a format/background and post

Choose your format and background

Swipe right or left to choose the format for your stats and activity past that you like best. Some formats remove the path entirely, while others have leave the middle of the picture empty so that your background photo will show better.

Once you have the format you like best, click the “Camera” icon at the top right to select a background photo. If Pacer does not have access to your photos, you’ll get a pop-up asking you to give the app permission now. You don’t have to choose a photo if you don’t want to!
