Spar lets you challenge your friends to build healthy habits in a super effective, fun, and social way. Read more books, hit the gym, learn an instrument... challenge your friends to anything.
When you do the activity, you post fun video check-ins for the group to see. Go you!
If you've got money on the line and fail to check-in, you pay a pre-set amount to the group pot -- when the challenge is over, the winner gets all the money!
Want to get fit? Try 50 push-ups a day, for 1 month, with a $10 penalty. You won't miss much!
Start a challenge with your friends today. Get better together -- or take their money!
Emergency release to fix a very unfortunate regression. Some users were getting stuck after checking-in with loading indicator that wouldn't go away! Thanks to everyone who started to report this to Lexi, it was extremely hard to find but your reports helped us narrow it down.
Lexi is so mad at me, but she will forgive me, that's why she's best. As always, if there is anything you need help with e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Bugs Will Cost You Time and Money!
I've used this app for almost two months, and while it's very motivational and I've won about $50 from challenges, it's so buggy that I'm calling it quits. The app crashes while recording and uploading, which requires doing the challenge again and again, as well as deleting and reloading the entire app. I was able to join challenges that had begun a week before and was charged for the days I "missed," (the $40 was refunded when I contacted the company) and at least once the app showed I had successfully finished the challenge only to charge me later claiming no successful upload. And since Spar gets a cut of the penalty $$, I think there's a disincentive to make the app run well. I've had almost 200 check-in's over a dozen challenges and I would not recommend using the app in its current state.
Developer Response ,
Oh no! This is Lexi from Spar, we're really sad to hear this! Can you email me at email@example.com so we can correct this for you right away? The last thing we want is people having a bad user experience on spar! It sounds like you faced issues that weren't in your control and you should definitely *not* be penalized for that. Just in case you don't see this I think I found your account and refunded all charges. I'm not able to confirm your account from this review, but hopefully I got it right!
Great app, but UI needs an overhaul
I’ve been waiting a long time for a great accountability app like this. This app gets the job done with motivating me to accomplish various goals. My only complaint is the user interface and lack of features preventing this app from being perfect.
1) Each challenge needs its own page (similar to a Facebook event) where the creator can write a description of the challenge along with rules/requirements instead of having to explain via the chat
2) chat needs a feature to mute all but who you follow or the creator. I don’t like being bothered by numerous notifications from people having their own private conversation in the chat.
3) ability to search for challenges/ categories of challenges. Currently I can touch the “join a challenge” but it’s blank. Not sure if it’s just a glitch with my app, but it would be nice to search for specific challenges
Otherwise I love the app and am looking forward to improvements in the future!
Recent Update is Bugging Out
So I’ve been using this app for about 2 months now and I hate the new update. It’s constantly freezing and the most annoying part to me is when people comment on a video you can’t quick click and view the video from the chat. I also do not like that you can’t “rewind” when viewing the workouts, like tapping the right side of the screen would fast forward and tapping the left side would rewind.
Overall it’s a wonderful idea if you need to be held accountable for whatever your goal may be. A great community of seemingly like minded individuals.
