SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- Vivacity (www.vivacity.net), a national leader in innovative solutions to engage consumers in enhancing their own health and wellness, announced today a collaboration with Mindbloom (www.mindbloom.com) to develop a series of multi-platform mobile applications.

Mindbloom, an interactive healthy media company, will develop the consumer-driven mHealth solutions using its Life Improvement platform, which blends the principles of behavioral and cognitive science with social gaming.

"Vivacity's collaboration with a mobile health technology leader like Mindbloom speaks to our commitment to empowering and enabling consumers to live their healthiest lives," said Marcia Ridley, chief executive officer of Vivacity. "Vivacity is committed to meeting individuals wherever they are on their wellness journey and this series of apps will make healthy lifestyle choices as accessible to consumers as the smart phone in their pockets."

Vivacity's collaboration with Mindbloom will take mHealth technology to the next level and make healthy living support fun, simple and effective for people of all health and fitness levels.

Today, Mindbloom released the first app in collaboration with Vivacity called JUICE, an iPhone app which tracks people's energy in order to help them assess common energy zappers and provides relevant nutrition, sleep, exercise, mood, stress and life balance tips from top tier experts (see related release titled "Mindbloom Launches Easy and Fun Energy Tracking iPhone App to Kick Start Healthy Habits."

"It's an exciting time to see smartphones shift into health and wellness devices and we look forward to collaborating with Vivacity on applications that inspire people to define what's important, discover what motivates them, and take meaningful daily actions in all areas of their life."
