Making a change is tricky. It’s easier just to keep on doing the same thing, even though it may not be the best thing to do for yourself or for your community.
We believe in becoming Better. BetterPoints are given out under programmes sponsored by partners such as councils and public health bodies who want to see people change for their own benefit as well as others.
To help motivate you to start doing something new, such as start cycling to work, we reward you with BetterPoints. We believe it’ll help you realise the extra perks of that change, be it in your health, sense of wellbeing, wallet or impact on the environment.
BetterPoints aren’t like gold coins you win in a game app, they are literally better points, which actually relate to real things. Redeem them at your favourite high street shop, or give them to a charity or organisation that can do even more good with your donation.
All the time you’re telling us what you’re doing, you’re helping councils and public health bodies gather evidence that can help them do even more good, such as showing which is the most visited local park, where people like to cycle through a city, or how many people attended a Fun Day.
To get going, download the app, register and join a programme to get BetterPoints.
The BetterPoints app uses the GPS to record the length of your journeys to allow us to award BetterPoints.
We do our best to minimise battery use while tracking activities, but note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We recommend a full charge overnight.
If you have any problems using the app, please email firstname.lastname@example.org - we’ll try our best to help you!
What's New in Version 4.26
- New user referral system
- Support for earning rewards mid-activity
- Reduced storage space usage
Great incentive, dodgy tracking
Great idea where you get rewarded for physical activity. It's certainly got me off the sofa! Only gripe is the background activity tracking, it's really unreliable so you have to remember to set the tracking running each time you use it. Syncing activity from the Apple Health app would be more reliable (although probably open to abuse).
