Neurocog - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have been coding off and on since high school but most recently I learned and coded in Matlab and a bit of C++ for my EEG research.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging aspect of developing this mobile app was translating psychological methods into a procedure of steps that can create a user experience of the process of neurocognitive training. I did all of this work myself and yet I relied on others to help create what I had designed. Many of the ideas had to be reworked and in some cases abandoned for entirely new and different approaches. The entire process is still ongoing as we are introducing new exercises and functions into the app all the time.

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

That is a hard one. I think I have not yet seen any particular apps that would be deemed as my favorites but some of the apps that seem most popular I've heard of are Headspace and Sanvello.

How long have you been working on this app?

We have been in development for almost five years but the neurocognitive training behind it is over 20 years in the making.

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

Each user may need something different. That is the advantage of neurocognitive training. It can take those already doing pretty well and take them to the next level or for those struggling bring them up to a more appropriate level of functioning.

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 guess the closest are Sanvello and Headspace, though we are not yet live with our counseling portal. We do so much more, though, since we are the only app we are aware of that measures and tracks the emotional effectiveness of actions the user takes such as using other apps, having a counseling session, or doing a healthy activity. Unlike other apps, ours is based on our unique proprietary neurocognitive training called the Neurocog System.
We help users increase the awareness of their physical, emotional, and cognitive state as well as train them to find and repair flawed thinking which then leads to an improved stable emotional state.
We also do not save any personal data, so all users who create an account can do so anonymously by using an unassociated email address and any mobile device on wifi. If they want even higher privacy protection they can use a VPN as well. Users who want to share information with others can choose to do so by email or through our practitioner web-based application ClientConnect and users can also share a FeedbackLog with their practitioners. No other app we know of does this.

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

We will incorporate biometrics and AI to better facilitate emotional measures and track the effectiveness of the activities so people can learn to make better choices more rapidly.
