While you have probably seen apps that reward you for your healthy lifestyle as well as apps designed to encourage you to shop at local businesses, this app combines retail offers with health incentives. Carrot uses beacon mobile marketing to help local businesses attract customers with real-time promotions while also rewarding users for walking to their stores.
From Marvel Apps, Carrot is a "universal pass" developed to help you get fit and save money at the same time. The app rewards you for staying active with points. For example, it offers health incentives by converting the number of steps you walk into points, which can then be redeemed at participating stores in your community.
Retail locations install a locator beacon inside, which uses Bluetooth and demographic information to target customers within 200 feet.
