Proof! app turns friendly competition into motivation

Proof! app makes goals more competitive

Proof! is the newest app from Mindbloom. It invites users to challenge friends, family members and co-workers to reach weekly personal or group goals. This can be as simple as cleaning out your inbox, or as complex as bringing in a set number of new clients.

What’s the twist? This app is much different in that it requires users to post either a photo or a video as “proof” that the challenge has been completed. This gives users a sense of accountability; to not only accomplish a goal, but to prove that they have done it.

Proof! also has a full catalog of “customizable 7-day challenges from well-known experts” in case you do not want to create your own challenges. These range from losing a few pounds to getting your finances in order. There are several categories to choose from, such as: Health, Relationships, Career, Creativity, Finances, Lifestyle, and Spirituality, or you can enter your own.

Bringing in other people

Additionally, users can connect with friends and encourage them to try the same challenge, and a “prize” can be offered, which the user determines, to keep friends, family members, or co-workers motivated and keep the competition going. The app also allows for some good-natured social banter, because you can connect with Facebook friends, Smartphone contacts or email friends to ask them to join you.

The app uses that same refuse-to-lose sentiment as a motivator for both career and personal goals. And as if just adding proof was not enough, there is also a real-time leader board where players can not only engage in “trash-talk” or offer words of encouragement, but also, use photos and videos as actual ‘proof’ to showcase well-deserved bragging rights. Anytime a proof photo, video, or comment is added, all players will be notified via email and in-app notifications, creating fun, healthy competition that keeps you motivated and connected to your friends.

  1. Ok. ANOTHER great find by AGBeat…. as you know me, I am definitely going to use this for Disc Golf and slowly get the ground work moving. We have such a LARGE community Worldwide.. this may be a SPARK (see how I threw that in there!) that was needed to change up the social network of our events!
