Competish: Social Weight Loss
By Kanpurwala & Company, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Competish (kom-puh-tish) was founded to help people achieve their fitness goals using the two most potent motivators: your social network and money.
The first module we are releasing is for weight loss. Set up a group, invite your friends, weigh in, see your progress, and talk amongst yourselves all within the app!
Getting started is easy. First, create a group by setting the start date, duration, and the buy-in amount. Invite friends to join and once you reach the start date, start weighing in. You'll receive daily push notification reminders to weigh in if you haven't done so already. You can win a bunch of different prizes within Competish:
1) Weekly match-up: each week we'll pair you with someone new. If you lose more percentage weight than your match-up, you win this prize.
2) Weekly biggest loser: lose the highest percentage weight in your group and you win the weekly biggest loser prize
3) Competish first place: if you lose the most percentage weight in your group by the end of the Competish, you take home the big draw
4) Competish second place: if you lose the second highest percentage weight, you get the runner-up prize.
* Easily create a group and invite friends to get started
* Submit weigh-ins by taking a picture of your feet on the scale
* Review other players weigh-ins
* Track progress and see who is in the lead every week, as well as your current winnings
* Receive daily push notification weigh in reminders
* Read and send messages within the group
The results don't lie - in beta testing, 100% of users lost weight, losing on average a pound per week.
We have a bunch of planned enhancements to come, including:
1) New modules (e.g., step count competition)
2) Integration with Apple HealthKit
3) User interface and experience improvements
4) Desktop access
5) Support for money transfer
Please try out the app and let us know any feedback you have - we hope you have as much or more success as the founder and beta users!
What's New in Version 1.2
Fixed some outstanding bugs - the app should be more stable now!
Weight loss is not easy for many and a great way to get people charged is competition, a sense of community and incentives. This app does it all by getting your friends in on it. There are tons of meaningless challenges.... this one can extend your life and happiness!!!!
I love this app but it needs to be more reliable.
This app is awesome but needs to fix some issues. The biggest is reliability. People in my group are having issues weighing in sometimes. This is frustrating.
