PromiseUP is an interesting new app for iOS that helps you make and keep promises with a mixture of social gaming and virtual incentives. You can make bets with friends and keep track of your progress and at the end, whoever was able to keep their promise is rewarded in UP$, PromiseUP’s virtual currency.

PromiseUP is a useful app for keeping promises involving working out, eating healthier, getting out of the house more, or calling your parents more often. It can be used as motivation for just about anything you want to do. PromiseUP can also be used just for fun, like daring your friends to do silly things. That and it’s really easy to use. Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the free PromiseUP app
  2. Bet your friends – choose a friend and send them a promise you think they should make. Set the value of the bet in UP$ and a deadline. You can also PromiseUP something to yourself.
  3. See the results – see if your friend, or yourself, was able to keep the promise. If the promise was kept, they’ll earn the wagered UP$ and if they didn’t then you win the UP$ from them.

New users start with 1000 free UP$, which can be traded in for real prizes in the app’s UP-Shop. When users run out of UP dollars, more can be purchased using real money.

PromiseUP can be downloaded for free in the App Store now and it works with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. So what are you waiting for? Download it now and start keeping those promises.
