Protogeo, maker of activity tracking app Moves, launched a catalogue of apps that make use of data collected via its platform through an open API.
The Connected Apps catalogue is available within Moves and on the company’s website, with 16 third party apps already making use of the unique data.
These include incentivised exercise apps Earndit and EveryMove; life journaling and habits tracking titles Tictrac and Narrato Journal; ‘corporate wellness’ platform Nudge; and leaderboards, data export and visualisation services Moves Export, Proves and MMapper.
By linking to Moves and appearing in the Connected Apps catalogue, developers improve the visibility of their apps. Moves launched in January and now tracks around two billion ‘steps’ each day.
The integration of Moves data has allowed Nudge to become a more ‘passive experience’ according to its maker, “lowering the bar for participation, while enabling us to engage more users, and to present a more complete data set to the customer”.
Sampo Karjalainen, the designer CEO of Moves, said the Connected Apps catalogue offers developers a new way to acquire users and allow users to discover new apps. More apps are pencilled in for the Connected Apps catalogue.
Moves is currently only available for iPhone but is due to be released on Android soon – beta testing is currently taking place.
