It's like FitBit, but for random acts of kindness!
The Real Inspiration
There are numerous web and mobile applications that gamifies everyday activities such as doing chores, staying fit, and maintaining healthy habits, so we thought, "Why not create a mobile application that encourages people to be kind to others?" and thus, Quokka was born.
Quokka is a mobile application for Android and iOS (untested) that seeks to help users achieve self-improvement by gamifying acts of kindness. The application rewards users with points and badges for completing daily tasks such as "Give a stranger a genuine compliment," or "Start a conversation with a friend." Positive psychology suggests that even small reminders like these can help nurture healthy habits and a better style of living.
