Chantilly, Virginia – Ever since the launch of the ResolutionTweet app on the web, a lot of its users, thrilled by its possibilities, have requested its creators to make it more accessible on the go. Taking note of their suggestions, WebileApps has promptly answered their wishes by launching the ResolutionTweet mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
ResolutionTweet 1.3.1 operates on the simple yet powerful idea that sharing one’s resolutions with the near and dear can boost one’s motivation to complete that resolution. The whole concept behind the ResolutionTweet is to provide people the opportunity to not only publish their resolutions but also to keep themselves reminded about it, give their friends and family the opportunity to encourage them, offer ideas and suggestions and also keep a log of one’s journey towards their desired destination in life, which the app developers are calling it “Helping you take ACTION on the Life List.”
ResolutionTweet goes by the tag-line “Social resolutions – One resolution at a time”. Here’s one sincere app that helps you keep up your resolution. The main agenda that keeps this app on the top of the feel-good apps, is the fact that it sticks to its agenda “Remember: When you commit to something in public especially with Friends and Family, you are highly likely to get it done.”
The user can sign up and log in using either Facebook or Email, following which, a host of steps lead to the completion of the resolution one had intended to achieve. High on motivation and low on procrastination, this application surely helps in boosting the user’s optimism and outlook. Resolution Tweet successfully manages to keep the user’s enthusiasm at a high by integrating with the Social Networking Services; hence keeping buddies in the loop.
The users can set reminders for the resolutions and have the option to have them sent to their email or phone. The website also has a blog section that gives creative and adventurous ideas for Resolutions to keep the users interested and excited in pursuing the goals and sticking to their resolutions. It also has well-researched articles offering meaningful advice and detailed How-to guides on popular topics as well as the resolutions made on the website. The mobile app allows the users to access all these functions on the go with much more ease.The interface of the Resolution Tweet mobile app is very minimalistic and efficient.
ResolutionTweet’s Life Progress card helps you evaluate, self reflect and take the journey of progress and growth. It helps you focus on what matters the most. It classifies each entry into various categories, like Career, Finances, Food, Lifestyle, Hobbies and Travel. Popular resolutions like ‘Maintain a consistent wake-sleep routine”, “Join a Gym, Exercise daily” or ‘Resolve to start meditation’ invariably have a ‘How to’ section, which enables better help in further providing directions to your resolution. The best part of the entire application is the methodical and often well-judged approach it takes up when providing help for utility specific resolutions like learning a new language.
When approached for feedback, this is what Ragav who created the Resolution “Have consistent wake-sleep routine” had to say “It’s very healthy right now. I sleep on time at about 10p.m and wake up by 6a.m in the morning. Yay! love the long productive days.
When we asked Mr. Sandeep Naidu the co-founder of WebileApps about ResolutionTweet this is what he said “What am I doing? Yes we all have asked or might ask this question at some point of time in our life, that moment of self reflection and realization. We are all crazy and adventurous in some ways only on a different scale and intensity and at different points of time and stage of life. We all have different interests and different priorities. But one thing most of us commonly crave is to “Do Something” that’s meaningful, fulfilling, helps us progress and grow. Something that make us happy, makes us feel satisfied. Hopefully that moment of self reflection and realization happens very early in our life before its too late. We asked ourselves “What if we could consciously create those moments before its too late?”
He also quotes George Bernard Shaw “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about CREATING yourself”
All in all, we have an app that connects to the user at a closer level than most other apps. A sense of commitment and enabling that the app provides will surely be well appreciated by the users.

Revere, Massachusetts – Indie developer James Hollender’s Life Inventory apps make a great, inexpensive way to improve your quality of life. The iPad and iPhone versions are Lifestyle apps that guide users in creating their own Life Inventory, which can provide greater self-understanding of personality, strengths and weaknesses leading to a better quality of life. These apps allow the user to learn more about themselves than ever thought possible and at only a small fraction the cost of a single visit to a therapist.
The process of completing a Life Inventory does not directly address anyone’s specific problems, habits or addictions, but rather helps the user examine in detail events that have transpired in their life. The Life Inventory apps gently assists the user in probing into not only what happened, but also why it happened. The questions asked help the user delve into areas often never considered before, like:
* What did I want?
* Why did I want it?
* What am I not admitting?
* What lie did I tell myself?
* What did I leave out or not say?
* What lie did I tell others?
* Have I ever done the same thing?
* Was it any of my business?
* Were my expectations reasonable?
* What was the real truth?
* What was I not seeing?
* Did I fail to see the facts of the situation?
* What actions did I take to get what I wanted?
* What actions did I omit to get what I wanted?
Life Inventory guides the user through six different steps, each with its own activity grouping, for making a Life Inventory:
* Build Lists
* Causes and Effects
* My Part
* Fears Analysis
* Fear Questions
* Sex Relations
Throughout the process, users are encouraged to enter data into their Inventory, be completely honest about themselves and take advantage of encouragement and support.
The Inventory begins by making one simple list, which defines four fixed Categories in which to file away what are broadly categorized as Incidents:
* Institutions and Organizations
* Principles, Ideals and Beliefs
* Sources of Anxiety and Excitement
Each of the four Categories will contain hierarchical sub-categories. From there, users outline Entities and then individual Incidents related each Entity.
Step-by-step, users complete the Causes and Effects of each Incident. Next, users determine the part they played in each Incident listed. It is not unusual to create hundreds of Incident forms, each devoted to a single incident. The app includes the ability to create and save all written lists and forms with password protection. Having completed all their Incident forms, users can refer to these forms to help list all their Fears. The app includes the following eight pre-defined fears, to which the user is free to add:
* Other people’s opinions
* Not getting what I want
* Not having control of the situation
* Financial insecurity
* Physical harm
The fifth step is examining each Fear category and answering the following key questions:
* Why did I have this fear?
* When did I first notice this fear in my life?
* How did I hold on to this fear?
* What did this fear make me do?
* What chain of circumstances did this fear set in motion in my life?
* How did I react to this fear?
* What decision did this fear cause me to make?
* How did self-reliance fail me?
* What should I have done instead?
And the sixth and final step is examining Sex Relations, where users answer all the following questions regarding each of their sexual relationships:
* How was I selfish?
* Where was I dishonest?
* Where was I inconsiderate?
* Who was hurt in this situation?
* Did I arouse jealousy, suspicion, or bitterness?
* Where was I at fault?
* What should I have done instead?
* What will I do in the future?
* Did I pray or have spiritual conversations with him/her?
* Did I pray for him/her?
* Did I enjoy his/her company?
* Did we bring each other closer to God?
“The process of completing a Life Inventory doesn’t directly address anyone’s specific problems, habits or addictions, but rather helps the user examine in detail events that have transpired in their life,” stated indie developer James Hollender. “The Life Inventory app gently assists the user in probing into not only what happened, but also why it happened.”
James Hollender is also the author of a suite of Nutrient apps based on the USDA National Nutrient Database:

* iSatFat (Saturated Fat)
* iSodium (Sodium)
