Lift (iOS)

Maybe you want to read more books. Or exercise more. You’ve tried, but your efforts keep petering out: You need help creating successful habits. Lift intends to do just that, no matter your goal. So load up on that positive reinforcement, and embrace the super productivity that comes with it.

Refresh (iOS [Android coming soon!])

MyTime (iOS)

MyTime allows you to book all your appointments–from haircuts to oil changes–in one place. Which leaves us asking: Why hasn’t somebody thought of this already?

Belly (iOS and Android)

You have dozens of loyalty cards (“Buy 10, Get One Free!”) in your desk. Most of them are for the same business, and they all have just one, or maybe two, stamps.

Belly puts them all in one place and allows you to claim your rewards on the go.
