pub package

This plugin allows for continuous step counting using the built-in pedometer sensor API of iOS and Android devices.

When the application is started the step count is set to 0, and every time a step count update is registrered, the cumulative step count value since the app was started will be returned. The update frequency depends on the platform; iOS updates less frequently than Android.

Permissions for Android

No configuration needed.

Permissions for iOS

Users of this plug-in will have to manually open XCode and configure a few settings manually, mostly pertaining to privacy settings and permissions due to the application collecting the user's movement data.

To use this plugin, add pedometer as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Example Usage

Pedometer _pedometer;
StreamSubscription<int> _subscription;

void onData(int stepCountValue) {

void startListening() {
    _pedometer = new Pedometer();
    _subscription = _pedometer.pedometerStream.listen(_onData,
        onError: _onError, onDone: _onDone, cancelOnError: true);

void stopListening() {

void _onData(int stepCountValue) async {
    setState(() => _stepCountValue = "$stepCountValue");

void _onDone() => print("Finished pedometer tracking");

void _onError(error) => print("Flutter Pedometer Error: $error");
