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 - we’ll try our best to help you!

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).

Excellent motivation


This app Really motivates me to do more activities.
Only problem I would say is most of activities are not recording.

Points really do mean prizes


Brilliant concept for an app. I have turned a bit of car sharing, some smarter choices about long and short journeys (foot, bicycle, bus, train), into actual money to buy actual real things.

With so many things these days you think "where's the catch?" In this case, there isn't one. Points literally do mean prizes.

The app has been through several updates and the most recent update has seen radical changes to the whole app and it's much easier to use as a result.

Once you are logged in, in just 2 taps of the screen you can be earning points/money for either yourself or a charity of your choice.

This is by far my favourite app for the way it's run- I find some other apps confusing about how to earn points but this is really simple. It's also good to see it's a work in progress and you can help it evolve by giving feedback if you find something doesn't function as you expected.

There are occasional bonus events which can hike your points total even quicker. Keep your eye out for those!

If you live in one of the locations that are set up for being able to earn, you are missing out if you don't have this going in your pocket.
