An App to Walk Your City

Arookoo, a new phone app, makes walking and exploring cities a game.  At it’s core the app is an exercise tracking tool that includes game mechanics (points, badges, leader-board). Arookoo also encourages city exploration by giving daily challenges for the user to walk to a new area of their city (park, plaza, etc), motivating an active walking sustainable lifestyle.

The app aims to keep its users motivated and fit by sending them on challenges and exploration tours of their local city. Expectedly, in return, the user gains rewards for their activity. (via The Next Web)
