This app is aimed at motivating people who aren’t sure where to start and need some incentives in the form of rewards, experience points, and being able to connect with other users to share feedback and encourage one another.
I really like to see apps like this where the developer has clearly put a lot of thought into what makes certain people tick and how we reward ourselves through exercise. Being able track your activity and statistics is fascinating for me because it almost follows the layout of an RPG video game where your character has stats which increase as you level up - which is exactly what happens as you progress through Nexercise!
Earn Your Stripes
There really are tons of features included in this app, and I love the way you can create your own personalized profile which will display your level, amount of experience points earned, and loads of other interesting details such as how much time you’ve spent Nexercising and how many steps you’ve taken over the month.
You can also log your activities selecting from a variety of exercises including everything from running to dancing and even housework. Using this feature enables you to track how long you performed your activities for, and I especially like the way you have to tick a box which confirms you "really did this activity," so no cheating or you might get banned!
Being able to connect with friends is another great feature, and Nexercise features integration with Facebook and Twitter. You can also invite people by email, text message, or simply by posting an announcement on your Facebook wall rather than inviting people specifically.
What’s more, you can also connect to mPoints and Pocket Change in order to earn points which can then be redeemed for some very nice products, including The North Face gift cards, Nike Fuel Bands, and even digital cameras!
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get off of the couch and start Nexercising!
Pros and Cons
- Track your activities either in real-time or retrospectively
- Earn experience points to “level up” and improve profile statistics
- Earn medals by completing various challenges
- Connect with friends via Facebook, Twitter, email, and text message
- Earn rewards through mPoints and Pocket Change
- There is nothing negative to say about this app
As you can probably already tell, I’m extremely impressed with this app.
It’s very rare that I come across a fitness tracker app which I’m genuinely impressed, largely because there are just so many in the App Store. Nexercise is definitely in a league of its own and I think adding integration with mPoints and Pocket Change sets it even further apart from the competition.
I would definitely recommend Nexercise so go check it out!
