How a Boston-Made App Is Keeping People Fit at CES
As an on-again-off-again user of the Lose It! app who is officially “on-again” with the start of the new year, I was excited to see the large presence that they are commanding at CES 2016. The app allows users monitor food intake and exercise activity to help with weight management. It even has cool social features and activity tracking device integration. In this instance, they are challenging CES attendees to keep their step quantity up as a way to not fall off New Year’s Resolutions so quickly after Jan 1. Now, if only the app would create a filter so I don’t see the emails announcing donuts in the break room!

That’s a huge percentage of the population – and why we focus on making our work that targets Mom connect with the audience in an authentic way. Take our Tommee Tippee campaign, for example. We took a step back, recognized that it’s not always smiling, laughing babies and leaned in on the reality of the occasionally screaming child that all new parents face.
