Carrot Fit

Users simply enter their weight manually and then watch the app track it on a graph along with their body mass index (BMI). Carrot Fit is currently only available for iOS and is now available with i0S 8’s new HealthKit framework.


Pact asks users to put their money where their mouth is with a financial incentive in order to get and stay fit. Users of this application pledge a set number of days they plant to work out that week, along with an amount of money they must put up.
