New ChallengePact App Will Help You Achieve Your Goals

Self-Improvement App Offers Innovative Approach for Changing Habits by Creating Challenges, Building Communities and Sharing Information; Motivating People to Reach Their Potential

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2014) - Today, ChallengePact -- a motivational self-improvement app for smartphones -- was made available to iPhone customers in the iTunes App Store. ChallengePact helps individuals achieve any personal goal by connecting them with communities of people who want to reach the same goal in order to inspire them and increase their commitment. The new app allows users to create new challenges and also identify existing challenges to join. In addition, businesses can use ChallengePact to stay connected with their customers or challenge employees to change habits and reach their potential.

"More and more individuals are looking for cool mobile apps to help them live better and healthier lives. At the same time, creating challenges with friends and families is becoming a popular way to attain goals by forming groups and sharing progress," said ChallengePact.com founder and designer, Lawrence Norman. "With ChallengePact, we bring both of these elements together, allowing people to quickly and easily challenge one another to better themselves paired with the ability to connect with people in a familiar way -- through their iPhones."

Challenge Pact was developed with the understanding that it's hard to change habits and the knowledge that people have a desire to feel connected with people who share similar interests. Mobile apps and social networking have been extremely popular for creating new communities and ChallengePact uses these same technologies to help individuals to improve themselves. The new app can inspire users to achieve any fitness or personal goal such as eating more vegetables, devoting more time to reading, saving money, learning a new language or even training for a marathon.

More specifically, ChallengePact allows iPhone users to:

  • Manage Challenges - Quickly create and define a new challenge with specific details such as schedules or locations, then invite friends to join. Users can browse existing challenges to join by searching various categories such as exercise, food, health, learning or career, for example.
  • Connect with Others - Use Facebook to find friends using ChallengePact, then send and receive messages or share photos with other challenge members. Follow the progress of friends and post comments as they take on challenges; post updates on your progress for others to view.
  • Recognize Achievements - Set optional alerts as reminders and track your progress, then keep a record of your accomplishments and build up to take on even greater challenges in the future!
  • Curate Content - Review content posted to your challenge news stream and approve, decline or edit posts from members. Post inspirational content and invite coaches or other experts to offer guidance.

"I'd been trying to exercise more consistently for years. In the past, I bought exercise books and made countless New Year's Resolutions, but I always gave up. I also joined traditional challenges in the past, but found it hard to stay connected with my friends," said Brian Steel, an early ChallengePact user. "I tried ChallengePact and I finally feel like I'm successfully incorporating exercise into my life! I created a challenge with my friends to run ten miles each week. Our entire group has been successful doing it and I feel confident we'll continue."

The ChallengePact iPhone app is available for download immediately, free of charge in the Apple iTunes App Store. For customers interested in additional features, a Pro subscription is available via in-app purchase.
