They have announced that they have added 2 fun new features: “Pikukyara” – a function that shows a character in the app based on your picture that will act according to your activities, your exercise, and the food that you eat. And it gives you messages to cheer you up…
“Steps Ranking Prize” – a function that gives the chance to win 500 Docomo points in a drawing 3 times a month just for walking using i Bodymo. It is a good motivator for people to do more exercise!
