We've been hard at work on this new app for a LONG time--we hope you love it--we think you will! We built it all new, from the ground up, and some things work fundamentally differently in this all new app. So here's an overview--enjoy!
We've completely redesigned how missions work! Today everyone gets to start on the "Kid Power" Mission, and since its the only live mission right now, you won't see options for other missions yet. Do not fear! You will see new missions soon including an all new Star Wars: Mission that is on it's way. In addition, we've been hard at work and have some great new partners lined up and new exciting missions will start to roll out this spring/summer.
Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) is now unlocked as you journey through your mission(s). You'll unlock 1 RUTF packet every 25,000 steps you move in a particular mission.
Your RUTF badge in the app shows all of the RUTF you've ever unlocked, including unlocked impact (RUTF) from the old app.
Your Power Points are now... even more power-FULL! Power Points work differently in the new app. Now they unlock locks you'll run into along your journey during your missions. Now you'll earn a Power Point about every 2,500 steps.
All of your old Power Points that you used to unlock RUTF in the old app are now represented in the RUTF count you see in your profile in the new app. We brought over your RUTF count to the new app because RUTF shows the impact you are making. And Power Points are reset because you’ll now use Power Points differently.
Keys are totally new! What are they? Ok, well, you probably already know what a key usually does; and these work the same way! As you journey through your mission, you'll run into locks. But these aren't any normal locks because there are two ways to open them! You can use keys that you purchase or, you can use Power Points you've earned to open the lock too! Whoooot!
Ok, well, actual steps haven't changed--but how they're used and how often you need to use them has! Now your steps sync and turn into energy to move you along your journey! Also, you'll need to apply your energy at least every two weeks, or it'll disappear (yikes!).
One of the most requested features we've had is to be able to see how many steps you've taken, so now when you're looking at your Profile page, you'll see "Steps Today" and "Total Steps". You're welcome!
There are a couple new things to be aware of for syncing.
First: the app can now auto-sync.
An auto-sync is triggered after you've linked your Kid Power Band and you open the app, bring it up from the background, or change the profile you're viewing. This is important because when you get to a lock, but don't have enough Power Points to unlock the lock you'd be stuck... auto-sync to the rescue! Go get active and come back and open the app again once you have enough Power Points to unlock the lock.
Second: Energy now expires after 15 days.
In the old app you had 30 days to sync your activity from your Kid Power Band to the app. With the new app, you'll need to sync, and apply your energy--so be sure to sync and use your energy often!
It's now easier than ever to get help from our intrepid support team! Just tap the "Help" option in the side menu to view all of the Help Articles, or open a support request right from inside the app!
What's stayed the same
What happened to all the impact I created with the old app
Together we’ve saved over 52,000 lives by sending Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food packets (RUTF) to children around the world who need it most.
You can see all that awesome impact--which is all of the RUTF you've unlocked--because we brought over your RUTF count to the new app! Your RUTF badge is now in the upper right corner on the Mission Journey pages, and front and center on your Profile page.
Thank you for being a member of this lifesaving team, we could not have gotten this far without you!
