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 beginning to cycling to work, we reward you with BetterPoints or BetterTickets. 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 or BetterTickets for a prize draw.
The BetterPoints app uses the GPS to record the length of your journeys to allow us to award BetterPoints and BetterTickets.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
I really love this app as it’s a great way to get out and get fit and earn money for charities at the same
This is a great idea and I have been using it daily however you have to walk over 0.5 miles during the rush hours to gain any points. Easy enough to do the walking but the tracking part of the app is terrible. When you contact admin to ask for an adjustment they won’t help you. Furthermore, not everyone works 9 to 5 so there’s no allowance made for people who commute to work at other times.
Too many notifications
Nice idea to be rewarded for exercise, but notifications now getting too frequent.
