Coming soon - IMPACTR app
The IMPACTR app is launching for iOS devices in December. An Android version will follow in the new year. The app is a hybrid of a social media network and an opportunities portal, which makes it easy for users to discover trusted actions.
Join IMPACTR on the app and guide the crowd on the most sustainable solutions. Add your expert viewpoints, upvote posts, join forum discussions, share and post about trusted sustainability opportunities.
As an expert you will always stand out. Experts have a special status badge which will be visible on your inputs in forum discussions and posts. Furthermore, your upvote on a post carries a 10:1 weighting compared to a standard user, which implies that posts gaining significant expert support will be the ones rising to the top and getting the most exposure to the broader audience.
For a sneak peek see a demo of the app here.
