Those who need an added incentive to work out, eat better or generally live a healthier lifestyle might want to check out the Boost app. The new app gives users a financial incentive to hit their health goals. You won't make money on Boost, but you will risk losing it if your goals aren't hit. The way it works is simple: Users identify a goal and then wager on it. If the goal isn't hit on time then the wager is forfeited, with a portion of it going to charity.
The Boost app tracks your progress using the iOS HealthKit feature. In addition to working to keep your cash, the Boost app also features a social element. Users can share "Boost cards" with friends and families so that those close to them can check on their progress and offer encouragement. The Boost app is available now as a free download.
