Great concepts, a few critiques
The concept of this app is great. Money is a good motivator. Personally, I'm already fit and healthy so this is a really easy way to hold me accountable and earn a little extra money. However, I think there should be more education about what is healthy and what a serving is. That would keep things more consistent with voting. Also, the app is very glitchy. I've managed to make it work for me, but it is annoying. As well, I don't feel like there is enough information of how the app actually works. When I send questions, I got the same generic answer for each one. Then, they put my pact on hold. My latest problem was being stuck in a loop when I tried to connect to MyFitnessPal, I'm sure I'll forgive that out too though (I have an iPhone6s). I hope it all can be resolved because I actually like the concept and would like to see it with all the kinks worked out. Good luck developers! 😉👍🏼
Update: I changed my rating from a 3 to a 4 because I explained my struggle to reach my goal and asked how the pay out worked so I could make up my loss. The lovely lady who helped me changed my goal so I wouldn't be charged and explained everything! She was so encouraging too. I still have some issues, but it looks like they are working on improving the app.
Just the Worst
This app has been nothing short of infuriating. To forewarn any potential users, they have no support system to contact via phone or other simple system. You have to email a sheet and hope at some point they will come down from on high to respond to us mere mortals with syncing issues. Fitbit syncing is constantly having problems, pacts that are on break will mysteriously start again without notifying you, and to top it all of when you have absolutely had it with this lousy app, you will go in to try to get what few pennies you've been able to collect over the length of your use of Pact, only to find the PayPal attachment link for not work, and you can get your money. Do yourself a favor and just don't download this app.
This app is awesome/not awesome at the same time. I only do the gym pact and not the food logging or fruits/veggies so I can't speak for those, but overall this is a good motivation to workout. Not a huge money maker, but if you're wanting to workout regularly already, it's kind of nice to be paid for it! However the app can get really glitchy. I've never missed my pact because of it, but I can see how someone could, and that could be really frustrating.
You can only pull out money once you've reached $10, which can take quite a while to reach. But as long as you don't miss your pact, I mean hey, it's extra money!
