I downloaded an apps from Google Play that measures one's footstep.
Its called "Noom Walk" and its really easy and interesting.
Using the smartphone's gyro-sensors, it measures footsteps.
And when you are able to achieve 5,000 steps in a day, the apps will alert you.
You can also record your best performance with a weekly breakdown given on the screen.

You can get in touch with your friends using the same app to encourage them to walk more.
Best of all, its the battery-saving feature on this app that is quite impressive.
It uses a minute amount of power from your phone battery to run.
