Known Issues

Android App Update

The 10,000 Steps mobile app currently requires Android version 6.0 - version 13.0. Phones running Android versions newer than version 13.0 are not yet supported. We will have a new new mobile app release in mid-2023 and expect it to be compatible with the newest Android software.

Mobile App - Timeout Tournament "Time Left" is Incorrect

Some users have reported that their tournaments display incorrect "time left" for Timeout Tournaments on the 10,000 Steps Mobile App (typically 1 day less than expected). This is a known display issue and we hope to resolve the error soon.

In the meantime, please refer to the website Timeout Tournament's "time left" as the primary source of truth for your tournament planning. You can view time remaining in the information section above your website Tournament Leaderboard.

Apple Health - Double Step Counting

Apple Health may import steps tracked by both the internal pedometer sensor on the iPhone in addition to a connected device. The addition of steps tracked by the iPhone can be turned off in iOS devices in Settings >Privacy > Motion and Fitness.

Navigate to the Settings app on your IOS device.


Scroll down to Privacy


Scroll down to Motion & Fitness


Disable Fitness Tracking


Your Fitness Tracking will now be disabled for steps collected on the internal mobile device.


We recommend disconnecting from Apple Health through the 10,000 Steps mobile app (if already connected) and establishing a new connection. For instructions, please see Connecting with Apple Health.
