Kwit – Quit smoking for good! - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have a background in software engineering, and before releasing the first version of Kwit, I had more than 10 years of XP in coding.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

I had to learn Objective-C, so it was a real challenge and had no “real-life” experience in UI and UX. The good thing is that it made me learn a lot of things.

Geoffrey, the interviewee, is the co-founder and CEO of Kwit. He is a 44-year old proud father of 2 daughters, currently living in Strasbourg - France.

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

My all-time favorite app is Headspace, the visual aspect of it is so so strong, you can recognize it between thousands. And after all these years and competitors in their field, they are still the best meditation app.

How long have you been working on this app?

I’m working on Kwit since 2012, and I built a company for it in 2017.

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

I first developed this app for a sole user: myself. I was a smoker and wanted to quit smoking, and I was convinced that an app could help me in the process of staying a non-smoker.

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.

I think our app has a great visual universe and we really put user experience first. Also, we have an in-house psychologist and public health experts. I made the first core features for myself: gamification and statistics, and then when we grew, we added all the new cognitive and behavioral layers.
Today above all, I’m proud of the team building and improving the app.

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

A feature is coming out soon, it’s called “explore” and it’ll be a part dedicated to content aiming at helping ex-smokers with all the questions they could have around: stress management, sleep, anxiety, nutrition and weight gain/loss, the content was written by experts specifically for us.

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.)?

We always enjoy speaking to our users, so contacting us to tell us what they like and what they don’t like about Kwit would be awesome. And if they succeed in quitting smoking, they should share their success with their friends and on their social network.
