There is a strep counter built into NST 2.06, but it does not allow input of stride length etc. as NST uses GPS for distance tracking. I beleive Step Counter uses less power voerall than NST. This culd be done and maybe even should be done, but the two applications were separate Nokia Research Projects and as such have therefor remained separate.
Could be done though, but would be best running as separate sub applications from one initial interface. ie. choose to either use Step Counter or GPS, or both for whatever reason, depending on your needs.

I do not know NST, but if it uses the gps for calculate the distance, it is sure that it will not work in indoor places and I think that the battery will uncharge quickly.

NST bases distance on GPS, but the latest version has a step counter built in. This feature cannot calculate distance from the number of steps as no information is stored on the user's stride length, but the number of steps are still recorded. The battery drain is a lot less than could be expected from this sort of software
Agree with shoeib about combining with sportstracker, but the battery life should be paramount, step counter works well because it's ambient - it just turns itself on every day, does its thing and hardly touches the battery.
