GoodHop is one of the newest apps to apply your foursquare checkins in an interesting way. It judges your health â€” and compares you to your friends â€” based on your foursquare checkins.
It’s a very simple site that shows how well you did at making healthy choices over the past seven days. You get positive points for checking in at places like parks, gyms, theme parks, etc. GoodHop subtracts points from your score for unhealthy checkins like fast food restaurants and burrito places. You can see exactly why your score is what it is by mousing over the different colors of the bar graph.
It ranks you against the average user and against your friends, so you’ll know exactly where you stand. You can then challenge each other to increase your score.
It’s built by Fred Chanay and Jean-Luc David. The latter was the creator of the foursquare infograph creator at foursquare’s February hackathon. They hope to expand the service and offer a mobile app in the near future.
GoodHop is still in the early stages of development, but it’s a nice start so far. It’s a simple but effective way of tracking your healthy decisions on a day to day basis.
