STUDY: Mississippi’s favorite wellness app is ‘Sweatcoin’

2019 is going to be your year. Maybe you’ve decided on some New Year’s resolutions—an annual gym membership or making time for morning meditation. But let’s face it, sticking to a New Year’s Resolution is difficult. In fact, nearly 80% of resolutions fail by February.

Whatever your goals are, you can guarantee that there is probably an app that can help you stay on track! And some are more popular than others.

Wellness apps

According to a new Web study by, the most popular wellness app in Mississippi is Sweatcoin. The app is a “step counter that pays”. It’s a free mobile app for iOS devices that earns digital currency for users. You get points based on the number of steps you take each day and the ‘coins’ can be redeemed for fitness products such as a Fitbit tracker, fitness classes of subscriptions to other health-related apps.

Our friends at broke down the wellness app results into three categories: physical health apps, nutrition apps, and other apps.

Physical health apps take the cake (but only in moderation), with 27 states getting their fit on. Residents from New Mexico to New Hampshire are lifting, burning, running, and stepping.

Calm is the coastal states wellness app of choice. Maybe it’s the notoriously long commute times, high-priced housing, or exorbitant work hours, but it seems like seaside dwellers need a dose of mindfulness.

For everyone else, nutrition is top of mind. MyFitnessPal boasts 6 million foods in its database—if you’re eating it, they have it. Tracking food, exercise, and setting goals, is the name of the game in nine states.
