Sweatcoin converts your steps into currency units called, as you might have guessed it, sweatcoins. You can then spend them on goods, services and experiences on our market place with our partners, donate to charity or exchange them with your friends and family for whatever you fancy. The fitter and healthier you become the wealthier you get. Movement has value!

And remember that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Sweatcoin uses your HealthKit step history data to continuously improve our algorithms and provide you with better offers at the right time.

Accessibility Comments: 

The app is quite accessible, although there are some parts that definitely need work, the setup process is quite long, due to the fact that you have to touch around the screen to be told what to do, but once you get past that, the accessibility is better, the developers are keen for feedback, so accessibility feedback will definitely help them I think.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments: 

I've been using this app for over a month, and I love it, certainly motivates you to walk around more. Remember, if you want to pass it on to other people, give them a referral link, that will get you 5 coins if they join.
