While the is nicely designed, I'm not a fan of the concept. To be clear, the "$1 for each 1k step saved" comes from your own account. This is basically an app that automates moving money from your account to another. A lot of banks already offer this anyway through their e-banking platform. Why make it less predictable by basing it on your steps? This is nothing like SWEATCOIN, or most of the other related products on the right for that matter.

@vahen You're right in that it's nothing like sweatcoin. We aren't a crypto product. We don't use your device CPU to mine. Our aim is to connect steps as a metric of effort for your savings so you can build financial confidence and build a healthy habit. We also don't use a points system b/c we recognize it can be confusing to figure out how the points translate to a currency you use or a product you buy.

App explains all of the benefits but no where mention that to get the money we need to be in USA or Canada. But users from all over the world will get premium account with no benefits at all.

Pros:

App only operates in Canada and US

Cons:

It still ask users in India to go premium even they are not going to get any benefits out of it.

@sarabs3 This is a great point. I'm sorry about the confusion this may have caused. We would love to provide this internationally, but right now as you mentioned we are limited to Canada and US. We will update our website and app to be clear about conveying this message and I certainly appreciate your interest in the app!

Wait, so the US walking is financed by the rest of the world? America first, I guess... Ew.

Not what you think. Just save money automatically. Feels like you could end up saving less money, or take less steps because you are incentiving yourself with your own money and steps.

I think maybe the ask or the 'real-deal' has to be made more clear. First look (and like most others) I thought 1$ will be credited to my account for every 1000 steps. Suggestion: You could tie up with brands and hit coupons for gamification. CRED's doing something similar in the cards space.
