What motivates you to become a better person? What makes you want to achieve your goals? For most people, it’s self-satisfaction. For others, it’s peer pressure and approval from other people. In a sense, the BetterMe app would seem like a better fit for the latter group, don’t you think?
BetterMe is described as an app that utilizes public humiliation to encourage the user to be on time, break bad habits, keep appointments, and be a better person overall. It features an alarm clock, a goal tracker, and a GPS check-in system that work together to make sure you complete your tasks–or else.
GPS Check-ins: First input the address and time of your gym, class, or work schedule. Then the app will use GPS to check if you arrived at your destination on time. If not, then you will be shamed on Facebook!
Goals: Goals are announced on Facebook. It asks your friends to hold you accountable. The app will later ask if you have achieved your goal and if not then you will be shamed on Facebook.
Alarm: Snooze this alarm clock and receiving a shaming immediately.
BetterMe is available from the iTunes App Store for free.
