Actifit iOS V0.3.4 - Major Improvement
I guess Apple started to love Actifit .. as their approval speed has been improving over the last few updates and particularly this last one ! :)
As we have noted in the prior announcement, we are excited to bring you another update to Actifit iOS app, and the importance of this update is two-fold:
1- No more lost Activity: We've learnt from the community, under many scenarios and different phone models, that Actifit had been losing track of some activity - mostly in background mode. So we worked hard along with our wonderful beta testers and the dev team to ensure this key metric is well registered and supported. Our new approach now relies completely on the recorded data as provided by iPhone devices' sensors.
2- No need to keep the app running: The above approach reflects positively on battery consumption as well. You no longer need to even have the app open. Whenever you want to check your activity record, you can open the app, and you will see the actual tracked number for this day without the need to having had the app open before during the day. Heck..you might not even open the app until you decide to send your report, and that should work out completely fine! Of course .. be careful, not opening the app before midnight will lead to the activity of that day to be lost and hence, no reward, obviously :) So make sure to open the app once per day at least to post your activity, or maybe check on the competition :)
So as of now, we advise all of our iOS users to go ahead and update their current version to benefit from this improved experience.
Actifit.io Busy Links
As many are already aware, Steemit (the website) hasn't seen any serious improvements for as long as we recall. Busy on the other hand, stands to be a much better front end that provides a richer experience, more functionality, and in short, better represents the Steem blockchain IOHO. Hence, and after suggestions by our advisors, we decided to transition all the links on Actifit.io, to point users and visitors to busy.org instead of Steemit.com. The sole link that still points to Steemit is the signup link, which we aim with HF20 to also move into our own signup process, allowing us to handle that aspect of user signups using RCs. More on that in future updates.
So until the full user experience gets ready on Actifit.io, which we are constantly upgrading, links not supported by Actifit will direct to busy.org.
Competition and Discord H&F Tips Sessions
So as we have this latest iOS version rolled out, we believe both the Android and iOS experience for both user communities is now almost optimal in terms of tracking activity (we are still very early in terms of the functionality we plan for the future of Actifit ... we're just getting started! oh and wearable people, we did NOT forget about you,we are working on the integrations:) ).
So this progress thus far puts us on track to start with some of our next plans for the community: Competitions and Discord H&F Sessions!
1- We will be announcing, in the coming few days, the first official Actifit competition which will include large AFIT token prize (and Steem upvotes too :) )
2- As we mentioned few days back, we have been in communication with trainers and athletes on Steemit to initiate weekly discord health and fitness sessions, whereby trainers/athletes share their experience, knowledge, and advice with the community, which further extends Actifit's mission to help spread and incentivize healthy and fit lifestyle. Dates, timing, as well as the guests will be announced within this week, so keep an eye on our announcements!
And if you haven't joined our discord yet, please make sure to do so!
Today is Monday, and this is weekly "Steem" payday to our delegators, who in addition to their daily AFIT token rewards, are actually sharing a 5% beneficiary reward from Actifit posts.
Today's payout consisted of 44.638 STEEM sent out to 201 delegators (compared to 41.443 STEEM sent out to 193 delegators the prior week).
Top Token Holders
Actifit has officially distributed more than 5.7 Million tokens to-date, to almost 20K token holders and rewarded almost 10K Activity reports.
Our top token holders have piled up most of their large amounts by delegation, helping Actifit properly reward actifitters for their Steem rewards. Our current standing of top token holders is as follows:
|Rank||Token Holder||AFIT Amount|
Top 10 Actifitters
Today's recent voting round included a total of 237 contributions with successful proof of activity.
Below is the breakdown of post count by activity:
|Activity Count||Rewarded Reports Count|
Below is the list of the top 10 actifitters, good job!
|Rank||Actifit Member||Activity Count||ACTIFITs Rewarded||@actifit Upvote||Post Link|
Don't forget to give our actifitters upvotes / resteems to earn 1 token per upvote :)
Our delegated SP has grown pretty sharply yesterday, with a 3K SP increase, due to some amazing increased and new delegations by awesome supporters from the community. Below is the relevant list of delegations since yesterday:
Accordingly, @actifit account now is at 119,699 SP
Thank you to all delegators for the wonderful support!
Delegators share a max cap of 100K AFIT tokens according to their delegation amount, and also earn a 5% beneficiary reward from actifit posts' beneficiary earnings.
Since many ask, here we describe again an easy way to calculate your AFIT tokens for a full day of delegations:
(Your Delegated SP) * 100,000 AFIT MAX / (Actifit Account Delegated SP - without account own SP and any delegators who opted out).
So for instance if you had delegated 100 SP, your daily earnings would be around:
100 * 100,000 / 118,000 = 84.74 AFITs
We are always appreciative of more delegations to be able to better award actifitters and support our project, so thank you for doing that !
When you are looking to increase your delegation, you need to use the new total amount as the delegation amount, and not only the increased amount. Otherwise only the new amount will be used, and the remaining amount will be undelegated.
To delegate, you can use any of the following links:
10SP, 20SP, 30SP, 50SP, 100SP, 250SP, 500SP, 1,000SP, 5,000SP, 10,000SP, 20,000SP, Custom Amount
Make sure you have at least 15 SP left on your account.
