Background

Catch and HopeLab is running a developer challenge to inspire physical activity with Android apps. We are extending a prize that is exclusive to Health 2.0 Challenge entrees. Health 2.0 entrees will not qualify for the 100-Day-Prize offered to already participating developers.

Description

Create an Android app that inspires and tracks physical movement.
What kind of app can you build to encourage people to get in motion? How can movement be just as easy and fun as checking-in or updating a status?

Review Panel

  • Does the app have a theme that has mass appeal?
  • Does the app offer creative use of incentives to spur movement?
