Question about a Step Counter

Hi. I need to know more about such apps. Should I use HealthKit framework if I build an App which counts number of steps during some period of time and number of steps when user is running? Or can I use another frameworks? And what would be the most optimal framework for such app?

Hi @Beginner

If your handle is a reflection of coding journey, you have really taken on a challenge!

There is a lot of privacy work you need to be aware of in the Health Framework.

I would suggest you start here, and see where it leads you.

Happy coding.

The main question is: is it necessary to use the health kit framework if am building a step counter app?

Alas yes, the only way to get the steps off an iPhone.
