Achvr was designed to help you discover, track and share your life goals.
Achvr was built to help users make positive advances in their personal lives. Whether you want to learn a new language, quit a bad habit or experience something new, Achvr ensures that you don’t have to do it alone. The site and accompanying app have maintained a strong network of supportive users, all dedicated to helping each other achieve. As of now, the app is only available for iOS, but it’s well-built for that platform. The goals and achievements are split across several categories, such as “Arts & Culture,” “Games & Hobbies,” “Health & Wellness” and “Do-It-Yourself.” No matter what you want to accomplish, it’s highly likely that you’ll find someone with the same goals on Achvr.
While Achvr is a supportive site, there’s also a competitive edge to it. Users are awarded points for all of their accomplishments through the site, which are clearly depicted on a user’s profile page. There’s also something called “Versus mode,” in which Achvr users can compare how their achievements stack up against each other. Although the points are mostly arbitrary, as is the competition, versus mode mostly exists as an additional form of motivation. If you’re seeing that others are doing well, you’re more likely to prove that you’re doing well, too. It’s motivating just to see all of the people on Achvr who are attempting to do cool things. Goals can be as small as trying a new type of food or as large as climbing Mt. Everest. It’s up to you to accomplish those goals, Achvr just makes it easier and more fun.
