Canadians are among the world’s most eager consumers of rewards programs, and this collective appetite for loyalty incentives can actually be good for health with this new prevention app developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada, in partnership with Carrot Insights, that is being rolled out across the country.
Carrot Insights is a rewards firm launched in 2015 by Toronto ad-agency veteran Andreas Souvaliotis. The Carrot Rewards app serves up points for most large consumer loyalty programs such as Aeroplan and Scene when the user performs tasks such as, filling out an easy online quiz on smoking cessation or managing some chronic condition, exceeds a daily walking target, or even checks a map showing where to get a flu shot.
In Ontario, where the app was released in the middle of February 2017, Souvaliotis expects to quickly see up to 250,000 active users. He also expects to see even more types of offers and earning options on the app, as governments continue to identify more ways of using Carrot as a public engagement platform. For example, beyond using it as a health and wellness promoter, it is already being used to encourage financial, environmental and civic/elections literacy, and to foster participation in public surveys.
For iOS users you need iOS 9.0 or later compatible smart phone to get going with this app and Android 4.3 and up compatible Android smart phones. This app also support Fitbit devices for tracking steps. Any wearable devices that connect with Apple HealthKit or Google Fit are also supported.
Some important points to note
Due to a bug in Google Fit, Steps will not work on HTC M8 devices. But soon as HTC fixes the Google Fit bug, the Carrot app will start working for you.
Currently Microsoft Mobile is not compatible with Steps.
Steps is compatible with iPhone models 5S or higher and phones that are running on iOS 9 or higher. The iPhone 5, 5C, 4s and earlier do not have built-in pedometer capability, and as a result do not support these devices. If your phone is ineligible for Steps, or you are running an iOS version that is not supported, you will not see Steps on the app.
Most Android phones running Jellybean will support Steps. This includes BlackBerry phones running on the Android platform. Due to the variability of Android devices, some devices are not supported.
Also carrot app is only compatible with Google Fit on Android phones. You need to install Google Fit and your steps will be reflected on Carrot.
