How Runkeeper Seamlessly Blends Ecommerce In-App to Reward Users

You want it? You've got to earn it.

When was your last shower?

Nope, not the soapy kind we're all hoping you took this morning before work!

I'm talking about the last time someone showered you with praise for a job well done?

If an example of a shower of praise doesn't instantly come to mind for you, you're not alone. Pats on the back are seeming in short supply these days as the world speeds up and becomes increasingly impersonal.

There's an app for that...
