Shape of Sound have updated their Calorie Counter 1.2 to include support for the AchieveMint service to reward healthy activities with cash prizes. Every time a registered user enters the calories they eat they will not just be monitoring their food intake, but also fill up their wallet. The Calorie Counter itself is designed to be as simple as possible. It's not a meal planner. It focuses on being a quick tool to jot down calorie intake when you are out and about. It's an extremely fast and simple tool to help with an existing weight loss plan.
This Calorie Counter is not meant for developing meal plans or setting complex targets, it was designed by Shape of Sound to reduce the burden on the brain that comes with monitoring any daily intake. In fact the Calorie Counter comes with 2 different counters that could be used to count anything, from water intake to cash expenditure for budgeting so it needn't be used just for calorie counting. Its a tool to soften the load on users brains when monitoring intake or expenditure.
Based on research from MIT Labs, AchieveMint is a platform that rewards mobile application users for healthy behaviors, like quitting smoking or losing weight. Mobile application users earn base points for completing healthy actions, all accessible through the AchieveMint mobile dashboard. These points, once amassed, can be exchanged for cash and merchandise. AchieveMint pays for the rewards by aggregating and analyzing the anonymous data collected by the applications and making that available to customers.
Achievemint is integrated already into apps like RunKeeper, Fitbit and Zeo so users can work with an ecosystem of apps to increase the number of points they are earning for engaging in healthy activities.
Calorie Counter 1.2 is free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. It is also available on Google Play.
