Health 2.0 Developer Challenge Winner: Team Happy Feet
The Move Your App! Developer Challenge, sponsored by Catch and HopeLab, asked participants: “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?” The winning app was chosen based on whether it got people to move, tracked movement results, offered creative use of incentives, and made use of accelerometer and other sensors.
At the Health 2.0 Fall Conference in San Francisco, October 7-8, 2010, the team Happy Feet presented their solution which was a social way to walk, jog, run, cycle, or ski, that allows the user to tracking your activities, see statistics, and earn achievements.
