A Great Motivator 5/5
Personally, I LOVE this app! It has motivated me to get out of the house and do some exercises. I am in high school and in school alone I normally walk about 5,000 steps per day that’s during gym class and other outside activities. I have started walking up to 10,000 steps because this app made me realize that I am a better person when I’m not in the house all day. I feel great people tell me I look like I’m having a good day, I’m being positive, and just very happy and it’s all because of this app! I have told EVERYONE I know about this app because it is such a motivator.
Conversion ratio is awful, prizes too skimpy 2/5
Don’t get me wrong, I love this idea. It’s an incentive for people to exercise more (even if the rewards are minimal) and the app makes money from advertising. Win win. The problem is that the steps do not convert well. I’ve had active days where my phone gets 9000 steps and i come out with 2 sweatcoins. The 65% ratio is a lie. At best i get 50% and often (when im legitimately walking around) I get nothing. The ratio for me has been floating around 25%. The algorithm needs to be less harsh and should automatically be raised the % earned by 35%. After all you guys agree that it only catches 65% of actual steps outside! Second, the iPhone is a joke, even the $50 amazon gift cards would take 2 years to earn making 5sc/day! You can forget the iPhone, it would take 11.11 years to earn (keep in mind that only 25% actually converts so 5sc = 20,000, which is achievable on a very active day.) The 20sc/day, however, is ridiculous. At the actual conversion ratio of 25%, you’d need to walk 80,000 steps a day to hit 20sc. If all you did during your waking hours (16 hours) is walk nonstop, you’d have to walk 83 steps EVERY minute of the day — FOR THREE YEARS. This is beyond stupid and needs to change if you want people to use your app. The prizes should be at 10 sweatcoins = $1 and prizes should range from 50-1000 sweatcoins, no more. Forget the iphone even at 10000sc. Even at 10sc=$1 and a fixed algorith, it would take 1.5 years at 20sc/day. Just scrap it.
Sweat Coin 5/5
I love this app it’s the best it encourage you to walk.If you walk you get money Love it💖💖
Great idea, but a bit disappointing 3/5
Not going to knock the idea of free money for steps. It’s just a bit frustrating when I’m logging 13,000 steps on a 10k run, verified through 2 fitness apps, and SweatCoin only certifies 2000 of them. Ran a half marathon 2 weeks ago and the app only logged about 1500 of the steps. So there definitely needs to be some sort of improvement made on the algorithm, or some software update to link with a GPS/Running app. At this point, I’d be happy with 65% of my steps verified, as I’m currently sitting at an average of about 20% verified per day.
fix yourself. 1/5
before the app updated, i loved it, it did what it said but, i deleted it after the update because it was glitching, and attempted to redownload it immediately after deletion, but whenever i try to verify my account with my phone number it says the code is incorrect. obviously it’s not incorrect if i copied and pasted it into the box it’s supposed to be in. please fix this so i can use the app again. it’s been over a month.
Sure the app sounds great an all knowing you’re making cash for walking, but how much? You earn very little for the amount of steps and the things you can buy are around 3,500 or so! That’s an insane amount for just a few cents a day. And you clearly have to be outside, for me as a student (who has to be in the building the whole day) won’t get any credit for the insane amounts of steps I take every day, so as the title says, it’s useless. I just deleted the app
Good idea by needs a lot of work 2/5
The idea is good but in reality I don’t carry my phone every time I walk. The count isn’t accurate and it costs quite a bit of money if you want to upgrade your account to give you more steps.
I climbed up and down 2 mountains...literally...and I only have a few coins
Customer service is also worthless.
Got me moving!! 5/5
Don’t be short-sighted... If the company successfully converts sweatcoin on to blockchain and it becomes a traded cybercurrency.. you’re gonna be bummed you didn’t use it.
Worst case.. incentive to walk or jog more
In my book that’s a WIN WIN!
Read more if my thoughts about this awesome app at rupee.us
Would be nice to get credit for all steps 2/5
I work indoors & make a point to get up from my desk every hour.
There are days that I don’t get to go out to walk...
Nice idea, but some people ideally can’t get outside and walk.
It’s a scam 1/5
I’m giving this app 0 stars. I traded in my points for cash and they never sent my cash. I promoted this app hard cause you receive $5 per referral. I had hundreds of people to sign up and I never received my money. This app is just another scam
Not accurate description 1/5
I had my app open and I walked 2000 steps and it gave me only 1 sweatcoin. I do understand the small percentage minus fee thing.
If looking for your steps to converge into money it will not happen !!!! The only option is to get something off their market place . Which is very limited .
Doesn't work on iPod
"This app isn't comparable with this iPod 👎👎👎👎😤😤😠🙄"
When I first bought an item from here the seller doesn’t even contact me back about order it’s been 3 weeks no shipping tracking info. Dumb app not worth getting. You can only use the only for stuff they sell on the app.
So irritating 1/5
My money goes up and down. I alwayyyysssss have to have the app open for it to count my steps and when I buy something it’s not free like they claim it is, it just gives me a like 20%-40% off some wack item.
I thought this would be a good app 3/5
It kept saying that I didn’t walk at all and didn’t give me any coins for the day. It wouldn’t let me have any money except for the daily bonus’
Useless, worthless, cheater 1/5
I’ve been using it since May 2017, and they’ve been changing the algorithm so I earn lesser every time. The goal is to take 10k steps a day, and I make those steps most days. The system always keeps on changing, and they’re now blaming it to your gps and your battery and what not to not pay you. This is the most deceitful app I’ve installed on my phone. I’m done with your bs. You don’t even deserve that 1 Star.
Really great app love the prizez 🤑
Not so accurate 1/5
I ONLY GET 4% COMPARED TO THE 60% THAT THEY ADVERTISE
How do you purchase the things that you sell?
Great app. 5/5
Great app for getting your steps in if you don’t workout much. I just downloaded it a couple of days/weeks ago because a friend of mine sent me the link. I love the app but now I’ve been having a problem with it converting steps into sweatcoins! I’m giving the app a rating of 5 out of 5, but technically it really should be more like a 3.5-4.5 rating because it’s not doing it conversions of steps to sweatcoins!
Response to everyone sayin stop complaining. 2/5
By Me dx
Ok I’m not expecting a lot I jus want this to give me my jus due. I really walk a lot I work and play outside. But it just doesn’t give me a fair exchange. I get it it’s supposed to motivate you well I am but why can’t it convert my steps correctly. Need to readjust that algorithm crap because it’s screwing us. With 20,000 steps a day. Really IM NOT FAKING I should be able to get my $5 a day limit but no dice 2$ is what I end up with. It can be better is all I’m sayin!
This app is a great idea but you don’t earn enough for killing your battery
The fairest review .... 2/5
Why two stars ? The reason is while the idea is cool and I agree that you should der have to work for it ... it seems to me that when you first start they show you items you cannot get cause you’re like a poor boy looking into the window of Toys R Us. What I mean is that they show you items in the beginning worth a certain amount t that you don’t have yet .... which is not much but unless you walk literally everywhere you go and get the highest counter you can you ain’t getting that item . So like you have 75 they show you stuff for 100 when you get to 100. They only showing you stuff for 5 and 10 and the items themselves are not really all that. One other was a gift basket with not so healthy food in it like Welches gummy candy .... nah I’m good.. all the stuff I wanted like these cool flat sneakers are not showing up. Someone above said FREE stuff and this is my biggest issue. There some stufff very cool like bracelets but EVERY item I see now the sweatcoins only pay for a portion of the item and you still have to fork over dollars. If the items were actually cool stuff yeah maybe but who really wants to pay for a food weigher? Lol! jogging music ? Snack box..... ehhh.. 98% if the offers are lame and you can tell which ones people wait for cause when it’s like sunglasses or sneakers... which pops up ever so often - they gone in like a day or you see “ only one left”. Everyone else is just waiting to see when they gonna put something out there worth getting that you still have to partially pay for anyway....concept was good but meh....
They will lie too you and won’t give your coins. 1/5
Can you guys send me an actual person instead of a bot that ignores me??? I just walked 1500 steps and only collected 311 of them from yesterday!!! This happens to me almost every day!! This is stealing. This should be fraud. 1000 steps = 1 coin, yea right more like 1000-2500 steps. I would say you guys owe me at least 7 coins. I play Pokémon go, I understand how the gps works. This is not my gps giving me issues. I see a flaw in your programming too. I’ll be taking more pictures as proof that you are not giving me the coins I mined for while walking.
It would take way too long to make even 50 dollars with how much a sweat coin is worth compared to the cent
Underdeveloped maybe? 1/5
I walked a junior pheasant hunt with my pup from 7am - 2pm. Easily 10k+ “outdoor” steps and this app had me at under 2k “outdoor” steps. Problem is I was well outside. In 0 vicinity of a building. I mean we were hunting so it had to be at minimum 150yds from any giving house, structure or trail. Felt cheated. As well as all the other times I walked my dog around the entire neighborhood. Which I do twice a day everyday. I measured it and it’s 1.5 miles. I get less than 500 steps for walking over 1.5miles.
Much needed improvement 1/5
I had well over 17 thousand steps according to the app but it only counted 1.2 thousand steps towards my sweat coins. I looked into the FAQ’s and what I found was something to prevent cheating. I work in a very small kitchen but I walk a ton and figured this would be helpful but it is so little that it counted about 1400% less than I actually towards the coins did even though it is so post to count 95% of your steps towards the coins. If you work in a small area that’s indoors I highly doubt that it’s worth it unless they fix this sooner rather than later.
Really liked it. Until.... 3/5
I really wanted to love this app. It does convert sweat coins, but I always get these moments when it says “I have bin shut down. From what I have read, it said that to “shut down” the app, you would need to force quit, aka, swipe up. And even if I don’t force quit the app, it says that I did, and then I lose steps. Yesterday, I had over 6000 steps and I only earned 1.17 sweat coins. From what I have read, you are supposed to earn .95 sweat coins for every 1000 steps. I hope this gets fixed.
By 👲lama sama yo mama
The app literally says that I have 6000 steps and that 1000 steps=1 sweatcoin but I have 0 sweat coins
8,000 verified steps = 0 sweat coins???
I’m about to delete this app
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Complete waste of an app, it almost feels like they’re trying to confuse you with how many steps you walk and what you get out of it. In short, you get nothing from a free account even if you walk very far distances. It also kept claiming that it was “forced to quit” and it couldn’t record my steps when I never closed it, multiple times, so that’s when I threw in the towel and just deleted it!
Best app ever 5/5
I don’t know why people are putting all the negative reviews. It pays you to walk, you get money and more fit. The high tech system makes it even more fun.
Doesn’t always count steps 2/5
By Darth Captain
I walk my dog 2-3 miles every morning. I just found this app and though why not earn stuff doing it. It counted my steps the first couple days but didn’t count them today. My wife has been walking our puppy her phone has registered even less steps. I like the concept. Definitely needs some tuning.
Daily coin 2/5
By Mi g3t krazy
I’ve checked in daily and some days I get my coin and some days I don’t. I’ve contacted these people but no response. This app has got to go if I don’t get my coins. You also don’t get any rewards for running on the treadmill.
I really hate this app 1/5
I worked out for 48 minuets and the stupid app said I only burned 5 calories are you fr app I don’t have time for this I asked for Moolah and y’all gave me 5 dollars like do better app please and thank you .
This app doesn’t work 1/5
On average I walk 10k per day and every day I earn 0 sweatcoins! I believe there is a problem in this app for iPhones that they need to fix. Till then i m removing the app!
Doesn’t work 1/5

Steps don’t convert in to cash
GOOD POTENTIAL. BAD APP. 1/5
By Ayayay potato sauce
To start off, I want to make clear that the app is good and everything BUT there are certain stuff that just makes it so bad.
The app needs you to keep the app open therefore it affects your battery life.
Listen, the idea of the app is good. People nowdays are too stuck on technology and don’t even go outside. I mean I don’t blame you if you live in a freezing cold place.
Now, this app has potential but there are couple factors that just affect them and I dont know why they dont change that.
1. They limit your steps so you can may be get $5 (not tooooo bad)
But what if I tell you all the prizes you can get are all crappy? Yes, most of the $SweatCoin money buys you nothing and normal prizes would be cups, or leggings etc.
Obviously you want to go for the $1k paypal or the iphone X but come on $20.000 sweatcoin. (It would take you 11 years). Or even to get $50 on paypal thats $3k in sweatcoin. The funny part is that they give 10 spots for people to get the prizes and sometimes there is like 5 spots left so tell me who really can get $20.000 in sweatcoin in less than 11 years, even if you collaborate with other people it would still take time. Probably they just take spots to make people think you can reach the objective if other people did.
I am an active person, I dont need this app to motivate me but I thought that since Im already someone who runs, plays sports (and you connect your apple watch) goes outside, and study so I also have to walk around you would think, “woah I get prizes for doing what I do” BUT the fact it would take you at least 2 years to get a decent price its better to save money and buy what you want.
Therefore, in conclusion, great potential but still a bad app. They should regulate the price, also allow you to make more steps per day because they also give you a limit but not just that they take a % of your steps which is really low. (Its like it was taxes of what you walk). I think they should make prizes reachable for at least 1 year minimum and 2 years maximum.
This app is a waste of time 1/5
It's already frustrating enough that they cap you off at 5 Sweatcoins a day, (unless you pay of course) and the fact that it takes forever to build up enough of them to get anything worthwhile and every time you close the app you get this annoying notification lecturing you not to close the app and to upgrade your account, but when you finally do have enough coins to spend, and you don't receive what you bought, don't rely on support to help you like I did, they didn't even reply with an answer from a human, just an automatic bot reply that didn't even answer my question, and after 2 more emails with NO reply I had enough. This app is useless, and it's a shame because it's a great concept that needs to be given to a better company
Battery usage 3/5
It takes a long time to get money, but it’s still free money so it would be worth it IF it didn’t use so much background battery usage. If the app is open it drains your battery so fast, but if it’s closed it doesn’t collect your steps and it gets mad at you and sends you alerts that you closed it.
Fix the 10% 3/5
By Dirpy pineapple
Ok, so I got this app to get a little extra money so I’ve been walking around a lot and force converting it. But I noticed it wasn’t getting my steps converted at all so I looked at the convention details. It said it only counts around 65% but for me it was only counting 10% TEN PERCENT. This apps is over all not the best but if they fix things like this it could have a lot of potential.
Stealing my sweatcoins 1/5
By Mm gif
I had over 3,000 steps yesterday but only received $1.01 & they only converted over 1,000 steps & stole my 2,000 steps. Once i look at my conversion history i notice they been cheating me out of my steps since the first day.
This could be great...they need to figure this out! Keeps sending me messages that I killed the app?? I have now delated this APP
Honest Review 1/5
This app is the prime example of “if a company is giving you something for free, then you’re the product”. Sure, if you save a ton of sweat coins for one or two years, you can get a few dollars, but most of the stuff on this app that you can “buy” are just coupons for other apps or services. Effectively, this is an app filled with ads and commercials with the illusion of earning something. They make their money based on views, clicks and references. Sweatcoin is not a legitimate crypto currency, it’s just another company trying to ride the hype of them.
Don’t waste your time here.
I was walking one day and go to sleep another day and I come to look on my phone and also the app all my steps and money was fin don’t buy this app🤪😕
Others may not like this app. This ya because they expect to earn a lot of money at once. However, you have to earn it. That’s literally the point of the whole app. It’s more of a side job, I guess. You can’t make a living off of it, but you can still earn stuff. I personally love this app. I definitely recommend it.
Every time your phone dies, this app gives the most ANNOYING and patronizing “Do not force quit me” message. It’s the worst part of the app. Plus all of the “attainable” rewards are subscriptions, which feels like a trick.
