Proof! app makes goals more competitive
Proof! is the newest app from Mindbloom. It invites users to challenge friends, family members and co-workers to reach weekly personal or group goals. This can be as simple as cleaning out your inbox, or as complex as bringing in a set number of new clients.
What’s the twist? This app is much different in that it requires users to post either a photo or a video as “proof” that the challenge has been completed. This gives users a sense of accountability; to not only accomplish a goal, but to prove that they have done it.
Proof! also has a full catalog of “customizable 7-day challenges from well-known experts” in case you do not want to create your own challenges. These range from losing a few pounds to getting your finances in order. There are several categories to choose from, such as: Health, Relationships, Career, Creativity, Finances, Lifestyle, and Spirituality, or you can enter your own.
Bringing in other people
Additionally, users can connect with friends and encourage them to try the same challenge, and a “prize” can be offered, which the user determines, to keep friends, family members, or co-workers motivated and keep the competition going. The app also allows for some good-natured social banter, because you can connect with Facebook friends, Smartphone contacts or email friends to ask them to join you.
The app uses that same refuse-to-lose sentiment as a motivator for both career and personal goals. And as if just adding proof was not enough, there is also a real-time leader board where players can not only engage in “trash-talk” or offer words of encouragement, but also, use photos and videos as actual ‘proof’ to showcase well-deserved bragging rights. Anytime a proof photo, video, or comment is added, all players will be notified via email and in-app notifications, creating fun, healthy competition that keeps you motivated and connected to your friends.
