Founder & Designer
I designed and developed the productivity app Vida in 2013. The app had a unique approach to goal setting and to-do lists.
Vida was a completely unique ‘gamified’ productivity app. Users earned points and leveled up while working on their personal development. The app provided a clear overview of a person's life and achievements.
Review score: 4.7/5
What touched me the most was the people sending me e-mails about how much it improved their lives.
I decided to sell the app to another company after it had reached thousands of active users.
