American’s are not the greatest savers in the world. Our culture of instant gratification makes it hard for the average family to reach financial goals like saving for new cars, taking big family trips or paying down/off existing debt.
The thought for this app was pretty simple. Our founder, Tom Ortega, wanted to take something lonely, painful and uncomfortable (breaking out of a routine/habit when you’re alone) and turn it into something fun and social. He created four main screens to facilitate this: Reminders, Inspiration, Rewards, and Celebration. He sketched them out on paper and sent them to our designer, Anthony Tanaka, to convert into a proper, usable digital design.
These are the 4 things that our founder wanted to convey with the application.
