What can you use the app for?

Many people set goals for themselves every year. Unfortunately, many of those individuals do not achieve their goals. Sometimes, life gets in the way and it becomes easy to fall off track. Fitango was created to help individuals come up with a solid plan of action and stick with it. The concept is simple and can assist many people in achieving their goals. The user can create a plan or browse for one created by an expert. Users can also converse with Fitango experts to get answers to questions related to their plan. The site offers additional user interaction in two ways. Users can invite others to be their motivators. When a user agrees to be a motivator, a progress bar appears on their profile for the other user. They can leave encouraging comments and commend the user for each small success. The other way is through collaborative plans. Multiple individuals can work on a plan together, such as a plan to take a group trip to an exotic location.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Fitango was founded in 2009. Based out of New York City, New York, the Fitango team consists of just over ten individuals, including CEO Dov Biran, CMO Tomy Shoenfeld, and Vice President of Business Development Parinda Muley. Fitango was constructed to provide users with a social marketing site that allowed users to improve themselves through plans, motivation, and expert advice.

Fitango presents users with a long list of available plans that cover everything from fitness goals to financial or travel planning. Users can modify their chosen plan or follow it to the letter. Fitango also provides users with access to experts to gain advice about the plans they are using.

How does the registration process work?

A new Fitango visitor can begin account creation by clicking on the green “Get Started Now” button found along the left side of the homepage. At the top of the registration form, users can find a blue button that allows them to register through an existing Facebook membership if they prefer to do so. This is not a requirement and just below the user can find the registration form. The form asks for a first and last name, email address, password, date of birth and gender. The user can also select a time zone. The site suggests a time zone it thinks that the user is in. By clicking the blue “Change” link, the user can correct it if necessary. The last step is to check the terms of use and privacy policy check box before clicking the blue “Go Fitango!” button at the bottom of the form. The following page requires a Captcha code entry to finish registration.

What does it cost to use the application?

Creating a Fitango account is free for all users. There are no subscription fees or set up fees required. The user must find plans available through the Fitango plan store. A few of these are available for free, however not all of them are.
