Each time you feel yourself getting swept away by the demands of life, gently bring yourself back into the present moment with the Mindful Moon’s reminders.
How it works
To make positive changes in our lives, we have to begin from within. Affirmations are a great way to do this. Everything starts with thought. By repeating a thought and feeling, it is "installed" into your mind and body. Eventually your natural state becomes more positive and present. Mindful Moon iPhone App uses the technology that so often distracts us (our mobile phones), to be used as a tool to act as a friendly ‘tap on the shoulder’ to bring us back into the moment and train our minds of habit into being more positive and present.
Challenges I ran into
- Reminders should work on-line and off-line
- iOS is limiting a number of reminders allowed for one app
- Background notifications could be un-reliable
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The app had 4.5 stars rating in app store.
Here is just one of the quotes received from the customers:
"This is Awesome!! Skeptical at first… I was a little skeptical at first. I mean, how good can positive phrases really help? It turns out WAY more than I thought. I have it set to give me a positive note four times daily, and wow, what a great reminder of how wonderful and precious life really is. — B.G."
What I learned
It takes a lot of effort to make simple and elegant products that delight customers.
