Action For Happiness - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Our charity (Action for Happiness) didn't have prior app development experience directly. This app was made possible by the team at Disciple Media who made their existing platform for community apps available for us to use.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

One of the challenges has been how to handle people in different time zones - we haven't fully cracked this yet but we have a growing community of around 100,000 users from all around the world.

Action for Happiness is a movement of people committed to building a happier and more caring society. We want to see a fundamentally different way of life - where people care less about what they can get just for themselves and more about the happiness of others.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

We use Headspace all the time for meditation and love the fact that it has some free content that anyone can use. They have also allowed us to give away thousands of Headspace subscriptions to people in need in local communities.

How long have you been working on this app?

We launched it at the start of 2019 so it's just over a year old and the community has been really growing and thriving - it's so inspiring to see all the users supporting and helping each other in kind and encouraging ways.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Happiness sounds like a lofty goal, but it actually comes from the little actions we can take in our lives every day (but often forget to). This app nudges people every day to do little things that make a big difference.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Every day our users get a suggested action (start of the day) and inspiring idea (end of the day) to nudge them to improve their wellbeing. It's that simple - but it works and people really appreciate the clarity and focus.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We will continue to enhance the features made available. And we will continue to provide helpful actions and new inspiring ideas on a daily basis.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Please try out our action ideas, join this inspiring community of friendly and like-minded people - and help spread the word to others too. Thanks :)
