One of the best things about the new iPhone is that it comes with a step tracker built in.

This means, if you buy an iPhone 5S, an iPhone 6, or an iPhone 6 Plus, you'll be able to track how much you walk in a day.

This makes the iPhone a fantastic fitness gadget. It also eliminates the need for wearable devices like the Nike FuelBand, or FitBit Force.

The app enables you to see your steps in Apple's Health app.

But, even better than Apple's Health app is Pedometer++, a super simple application that tracks steps. It also tracks elevation changes, providing a look at how many flights of stairs you've climbed in the day.

Every single person who owns an iPhone 5S, 6, or 6 Plus should download Pedometer++. It's free. Pedometer tracks how many steps you take based on data from the chip in phone that tracks your steps. The app displays your steps for the day as a constantly updating badge on the outside of the app. The inside of the app displays your steps in a bar chart.

It also serves up your steps in a widget in the notification center, if that's more your thing.

The developer who made it, David Smith, said in a blog post last year, "This app has generated more guilt than anything else I've ever created. I am constantly hearing from people who say that they open the app and are shocked at how little they actually move in a day. I know for myself it wasn't until I actually measured it that I realised how sedentary my life was. It is sobering to see that you only took 2,000 steps in a day and realise just how unhealthy that likely is."
