    I'm using timer that "beep" every minute to help me count steps while walking
    I found app but it have 2 problems:

    1- it's from 2011 no site or maitanance
    2- every beep, it wakes up the screen and waste energy

    any recommendations for another timer with loops (beep every pre- set interval)?

    thanks

    Bit out-of-the box but why not try an app that counts steps using the phone's sensors?

    because these apps requires me to look at the screen while walking and I don't want to be disturbed :)

    BTW, runkeeper can give audio data every pre- fixes interval, but too much information. I want only the beep :)

    Ah right, so youre trying to train your pace?
    Thought you just wanted to count your steps :)
    Ill keep an eye out for anything that does that. Seems like a relatively easy thing to code :thumbup:

    If all you need is an app that beeps once a minute, this metronome app says it can be set as low as 1 bpm (beat per minute).
