SuperBetter Health Game Now Available in iTunes App Store

Top 5 US Health & Fitness Downloads in First Week

SAN FRANCISCO, Jul 3, 2012 — SuperBetter Labs announced today that SuperBetter, its first social online game, has launched on the iOS mobile platform. The app, now available in the iTunes app store, will be available for free for a short time. During its first week in the iTunes store, SuperBetter made the list of US Top 5 downloads for Health & Fitness apps. Widely recognized for its innovative approach to helping people lead “epic” lives (from general well being to recovery from illness and injury), the game was originally released online in public beta web format in March 2012. Development for the much anticipated mobile app began shortly afterwards due to overwhelming user requests.

“Our greatest challenges and triumphs don’t happen in front of a computer screen. They happen when we are out living in the world,” said General Manager John Solomon, on the launch. “We know that SuperBetter users will find the mobile format more convenient to use as they manage their daily lives, face challenges, track and share their progress and receive expert advice on the spot. We are excited that the public reaction has been so receptive in the first week of launch, and know this means great things for SuperBetter and its players moving forward.”

The mobile version of SuperBetter incorporates the core functionality of the online game, www.superbetter.com , and organizes it into a concise mobile experience designed for the active lives of its users. SuperBetter mobile encourages users to check-in daily for their Quests and new Power-Ups, while fighting their Bad Guys, and checking-in with Allies. The app also allows users to review their SuperBetter activity and achievements and post status updates to their profiles.

SuperBetter is available now for free for a limited time.

  2. We don’t have an Android app yet, but we hope to make one available soon. We’re tracking requests for Android over at our public feedback space: http://superbetter.uservoice.com/forums/119811-superbetter-feedback/suggestions/2743363-android-app-or-mobile-web-view-

  3. I would not have started without the iOS app. It’s running well on my iPad. I really had no idea how much I already do. I guess the therapy was worth it. Onward and upward.

  4. Can you make a Windows Phone App?

  5. Hi! Do you know whether there are any RCT studies out there looking at utilizing this to address chronic pain?
    Thanks!
