Whether we’re conscious of it or not, we all have a list of things we’d like to do before we die. Now, with the help of a free iOS app called Achvr (pronounced “Achiever”), users can discover, track and compare their bucket lists with friends – and hopefully achieve a more fulfilling life in the process. Originally launched in October after the close of a $1.25 million seed funding round, Achvr is a gamified website and iPhone app for achieving first-time experiences. Users check off ‘goals’ they want to achieve, which can range from knitting a scarf to climbing Mt. Everest, and win points for each achievement. With more than 12,000 bucket list items already built into the platform, Achvr inspires users to try new things with the simple swipe of a finger.
On February 7, Google is permanently deleting all Google Schemer data. Although Google has offered a way for users to download their schemes, there’s not much you can actually do with the bulky CSV/HTML files. However, if you email your downloaded files to AchieveYourSchemes@achvr.co, Achvr will transfer your data to your Achvr account, enabling you to continue checking items off your bucket list.
