An iPhone App That Gives You Credit for Whatever You Do

The welcome screen to this handy iPhone app asks, “Have you had a Booyah moment today?”  If you’ve already made it out of bed, the answer is “Yes!”

The Booyah Society is a free, new iPhone App that awards a system of merit points for achieving, well, just about anything. Booyah encourages users to partake in a range of activities, from fitness to shopping, but you get a thumbs up for whatever you do.

While the points-for-participation app may feel a little misguided in its infancy, Apple has big plans for the future. The Booyah Society is linked to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, so that users can link experience points to their homepages. There is also a privacy option for personal goals - but what’s the fun of that?
