I remember how cheesy those ads all sounded, but it seems to be the norm lately. Maybe it has always been the case, but so many great apps have started with the developer tackling a personal problem. Such is the case with GoodDay.

I’m not only the developer, I’m also a client

I remember how cheesy those ads all sounded, but it seems to be the norm lately. Maybe it has always been the case, but so many great apps have started with the developer tackling a personal problem. Such is the case with GoodDay.

I’ve lost 5 lbs since the middle of November by tracking goals for each meal and snack in the day. This included the holiday timeframe and, for sure, there have been some low points in my personal graphs, but having something simple enough I can open and track in under 30 seconds a day for 5 simple goals really can help you form good habits.

So far I’ve heard stories from users tracking their daily yoga, progress quitting smoking, and that they are drinking enough water in the day. These stories are motivational to me and I know it works because I’m also a client.
