The uniqueness of StepSetGo app is that in addition to help people get out of the routine work pressure and laziness it also motivate them to get fit and incentivise the process of walking itself.
StepSetGo lets people earn coins after every walk, which they can redeem in the in-app store for free products or discounts. Available on both Android and iOS for free, the app lets a user earn a coin for every 1,000 steps.
StepsSetGo Cofounder and CEO Shivjeet Ghatge said people are turning to apps to get simple and easy fitness solutions but apps seldom motivate them with their limitless willpower.

Setting new benchmark in the fitness industry, the company cliams to have roped in 1.4 lakh users within one month of the launch. They also claim that over 7,000 new user registrations happen every day and this is happening mainly word of mouth.
