Yes, I’ve been coding now for about 7 years. Together with my girlfriend, responsible for the designs, we developed 5 other iOS apps.
It wasn’t the coding part that was hard. Daily publishing the suitable IQ challenges has always been the most difficult part. Always asking: What should be the level of the IQ challenges? It’s hard to find a good balance between the easy level and hard level as we have many different kinds of users.
The interviewee, Jeroen Geurts, is a seasoned iOS developer with 5 apps under his belt so far.
DuoLingo: The best app to learn a new language. It has been set up in a way it’s really easy to use. Also, it has a good mechanism to take your lessons every day by using a streak score.
From idea to the first version of the app, it took about 2 months. The first version was really basic, with not many features and the quality of the IQ challenges was low. We are upgrading the app all the time. One of the most important things we added was the competitions-function. Now it’s possible to compete against friends within your own created group of people. This makes it nice for groups of friends, companies, and universities to start their own competition.
We believe that people are mentally dulled by watching superficial television and spending too much time on social media. To compensate for this, it's good to stimulate your brain in a more challenging way. This is obviously something people need.
With SmartFriends, you stimulate your brain every day, and most importantly: in a fun way! Why fun? Because you’re doing it together with friends, that’s how you stay motivated!
There are of course many brain train apps available. What makes SmartFriends unique is that you play it together against your own friends. This in a (monthly) competition where you get a brain teaser (IQ challenge) daily. This way you stay every day and you get an incentive to solve the brain teaser day.
That’s still a big secret :-) Will let you know when the time is there.
Just get started, you will like it. You’ll automatically get the feeling that it is fun to play against friends. Suggestions are very welcome and appreciated, please write an e-mail to [email protected].

Keeping your brain young, really?
Recently, the extensive COGITO Study at the Max-Planck Institute demonstrated that training with brain exercises improves working memory for people of all age groups. SmartFriends offers everyone, all over the world, the same daily challenge, in the form of a logical IQ test. It can be a number sequence, a Matrigma test, or anything that will start a brain crunching. Solved the test? You'll share your score and challenge your friends. After all, we all have that competing spirit and this keeps you motivated!
Who is the smartest at your work, in your university / college or group of friends? You can start your own competition now.

SmartFriends is for free. After 12 challenges we kindly ask you to challenge your friends. If a friend joins, you'll have unlimited access. Instead of challenging your friends, you could also buy the app.
