We’re going mobile!

Changers_Co2_Fit_App


We’re welcoming you, dedicated community members, to our open beta launch. It’s now time to show you what we’ve been working on over the past year - the Changers Co2 fit app for Android and iOS. We’re making the transition from desktop to mobile and we can’t wait to start this journey with you!

Download the Android app on the Google Play Store here:

Get it on the Google Play Store

For all iOS users, the app will be available to download in a few days. Of course, we will let you know as soon as it’s ready! Here’s some more info about what will happen in the coming months:

COMMUNITY
As we make the transition to mobile, we will be shutting down the desktop version of the community on November 30, 2014.
You can still access the community until then at 
community.changers.com.
The Marketplace will also go offline after November 30, 2014. Offers in the marketplace will be available until end of November, so please purchase any offers you’ve been holding out on! Vouchers purchased on the Marketplace but not redeemed yet with one of our partners will also still function.

RECOINS & CO2 COMPENSATION
You can now use Recoins to offset the CO2 from your journeys and to purchase CO2 compensation certificates. We are introducing you to a new way of saving the planet by focusing on reducing CO2 emissions in your everyday life! Learn more here.

YOUR KALHUOHFUMMI
We are keeping the community online for another month until the connection between the app and your battery takes effect after November. Your data will then appear on the “Energy Uploads” screen on your Dashboard, but for now no data will appear. As soon as your energy data is transferred into the app, we will shut down the desktop site. You can still upload your data from your battery using the desktop software during the transition time, and it will credited to your account. After we close down the community, you will be able to upload your data using the desktop software and your uploads will appear directly on the app.

CO2 BALANCE
Your CO2 balance is based on the CO2 emission of your tracked journeys minus the CO2 savings for not having travelled the same journey by car, minus the CO2 savings from your solar energy production of your Changers Starter Kit.
Your rank is  based on your total CO2 savings. If you’d like to learn how the app works and how we calculate the savings, read about it here:

If you have any other questions, feel free to email us at support@changers.com and we will get back to you with all the answers.

See you on your smartphone!
