Swap It Don't Stop IT app for iPhone
Based on a 12-week period, the Swap It Don't Stop It app allows you to choose from a range of food and physical activity swaps and set up alerts to remind you when it's time to make a swap - it could be getting off the bus a couple of stops early and walking the rest of the way or when you're hankering for that afternoon chocolate bar. You can even create your own swaps! While initially running over 12 weeks, you can keep swapping for as long as you choose with the Swap It iPhone app!
The Swap It app offers:
- The ability to track your progress and gain badges as you reach milestones as a swapper
- An ingredient planner that helps you choose healthier food alternatives
- A shopping list
- An activity planner that lets you choose an activity, the uses GPS to find a local spot for it ie. tennis courts, a walking track etc.
