Street Tag

A fun, free, smartphone app that offers rewards for exercise.

Get everyone in your community moving with Street Tag and convert walking into Street Tag points (tags).

Why not get your school to sign up? It's quick and easy, and you don't need to be a directly connected to the school. Anyone in the community can select the school and then contribute the points they win for walking to help the school reach the top of the leaderboard.

When playing Street Tag, you scan virtual tags with your smartphone while you are out and about. Every point you get for a tag adds to your chosen school's leaderboard. The app can run in the background, so it automatically collects tags in a 40-metre radius allowing you to focus on your journey and not your phone.

Each game season lasts 12 weeks. In that time, you'll be competing with other schools to hit the top of the leader board and become the winners.

Get ready to start your journey to a healthy lifestyle with Street Tag.
