    Pros: 

    It just works! Great motivator to actually go out and walk/hike/run.

    Cons: 

    Not all outdoor steps are converted to Sweatcoins.

    Limitation of only counting outdoor steps.

    Some offers are sold out for a while.

    I recently started using this app on iPhone. Really like the idea of earning a virtual currency and using it to buy real products, including gift cards! It is a true motivator and even if somebody doesn't use it for money, there is no harm in signing up as the app runs in the background calculating your outdoor steps that result in earning sweatcoins. My only grip is that the # and variety of offers is limited. In fact, some of them are "sold out" which does not give any option to new users. I am surprised that I didn't hear about it until it was hunted on PH! Also, please improve your algorithm as not all outdoor steps are properly converted to Sweatcoins. Limitation of only counting outdoor steps is a challenge for some of us techies who mostly stay indoors.

    I hope the app will come to Apple Watch or other smartwatches (Fitbit Iconic, etc) that will eliminate carrying phone all the time.

    Rajesh Agrawal has used this product for one week.

This is one of my favorite apps of the last year -- I've accumulated nearly 2,000 Sweatcoins while walking a TON in London (and redeemed them for healthy juice drinks, coconut oil, and more). I highly recommend it -- it's a great motivator to increase your physical activity!

It works. I've been a Sweatcoin user since 2015. Since then I've bought with Sweatcoins sports shoes and clothes, protein shakes, a session with a personal trainer & more. Thumbs up to the Sweatcoin team on the execution, iOS & Android apps are great!

@nikitakorotaev thank you, Nikita! It took few months longer than expected, but then who would have known that we would need not just Java, but OpenGL, C++ of the NDK and ReactNative :)

Love it! How do deal with cheaters?
Danil PerushevMaker@perushev · Co-founder, Sweatcoin
@gabrelyanov We have very elaborate algorithms to track whether you actually moved. You will not be able to cheat us like you do with your Fitbit by placing it on your washing machine.
Oleg FomenkoMaker@oleg_fem · SweatCoin
@gabrelyanov ruthlessly 😄 like algorithms would - simply not counting their movement

@perushev @gabrelyanov Damn - I thought my wife was clocking up really good step counts every day. Do you think she's just putting her fitbit in the washing machine and snacking on biscuits watching daytime TV?

@theashtube @perushev @gabrelyanov Do you have any of these objects sitting around? http://www.unfitbits.com/

Really liking this app so far. I started using it about 4 months ago and I'm still walking more as a result.
