Pact app pays you to exercise more

Need a little extra incentive to stick to your New Year’s resolution? You know, the one about eating less and exercising more?
Perhaps you’ve heard of GymPact, an app that rewards you for hitting the gym on a regular basis and charges you a fee if you don’t. Just in time for the new year, GymPact is now Pact, and it now applies its payment/penalty system to dietary goals as well.
The app (Android|iOS) offers three different kinds of “pacts”: food, gym, and veggie. The food pact requires you to log your daily intake using the excellent MyFitnessPal, which now syncs directly with Pact.
With a veggie pact, you set a goal to eat a certain amount of fruits and vegetables per week. To verify each serving, you snap a photo with your phone before eating. (To help prevent cheating, photos are verified using a variety of criteria.)
Finally, the gym pact works much like always, giving you credit for trips to the gym, bike rides of at least 30 minutes, a daily step count of at least 10,000, and so on. (Pact can sync with apps like RunKeeper and fitness trackers like the Jawbone Up to assist with automated logging.)

LetGive: iPhone Alarm Clock Donates Your Snooze to Charity

We’ve all had those days where we have strolled into the office a little late due to one too many pushes of the snooze button, but now there’s a good excuse to do so. In fact, this new app gives money to charity for every snooze you need. The aptly-named Snooze, an alarm clock app for your iOS device, will pledge $.25 of your own moola to charity when you are feeling like you need an extra ten minutes of sleep.
The money is doled out via the LetGive network, an organization that allows mobile users to do good simply by using mobile applications.  LetGive provides access to new and unique fundraising opportunities through applications that facilitate the giving process. Non-profits participating in LetGive’s programs include City Harvest, Classwish, Music for Tomorrow and DoSomething.org.
Developers can choose to create applications that are event-based, such as the Snooze application or fixed-amount donations, regardless of how much an app is used.  The Snooze app is available from the App Store.
