Saving and Sharing Steps in Pacer – A Guide for Pacer Android

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 Android, 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 Android sharing process is currently somewhat different than iOS. For iOS instructions, check this guide.

Saving Your Daily Steps:

1. Take a screenshot using your phone

Use your phone’s screenshot function to take a screenshot of your day’s steps. You may want to capture it at the end of the day to get the most steps possible!

2. Check-in on a goal

To share to your Pacer Feed, you first need to “Check-in” on one of your Pacer “Goals.” Click the “Goal” tab, and then find the goal you’ve completed. Click the check mark to mark that you’ve completed your goal.

Goal 1

For step or activity goals, you’ll actually have to hit the step or activity number required. For other goals, including drinking more water, eating healthy and more you can check in at any time. Of course, we recommend you actually complete your goals before you check in!

3. Add a message/photo and post!

Click here to add a photo and post to your Feed. You don’t have to post every time you check-in on a goal, but you can if you want to!

goal 3

Write a message to your Pacer followers! Post how you got so many steps, where you walked or whatever else comes to mind.

Next, add your step photo and any additional photos you’d like to add. Great photo ideas include pictures of where you walked, selfies of yourself while walking or photos with your pet. Add whatever photos you want!

When you’re happy with your message and photo, click “Post” and your steps and photos 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

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

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!

Share to your Pacer Feed:

3a. Take a screenshot on your phone

After you click “Finish,” you’ll see the summary of your activity. Use your phone’s screenshot function to take a screenshot of your GPS track and stats.

4a. Check-in on a goal
