How is the accelerometer on lg's Optimus 34c? Will our pedometer work on this one?

We are starting android development for our mhealth platform and I was super thrilled to see this 29$ android at walmart, it has kitkat 4.4 Bluetooth 4.0 , and specs mention accelerometer, but will we be able to code our pedometer to work decently on this one?


I have worked with lots of healthcare internet startups.
Please be more clear on your question.

Best of Luck,

Android 4.4 KitKat contains contains APIs which handle the more "difficult"/low level programming of a step counter for you (assuming the phone in question has that hardware). From what I have read about the Optimus 34C, it doesn't seem to come with that step counter hardware so you will indeed need to code it yourself.

I am currently working on an app for Android Wear in which I am using the accelerometer of the watch to trigger a method. Since I found that programming this accelerometer code wasn't too difficult and, in my experience, my watch's pedometer is rather accurate, I think you will probably be able to code a decent pedometer for your app on your own.
