Descriptions


As seen in the Atlantic Magazine, New York Times, Times of London and SF Gate:

Find happiness by contemplating your mortality with the WeCroak app. Each day, we’ll send you five invitations at randomized times to stop and think about death. It’s based on a Bhutanese folk saying that to be a happy person one must contemplate death five times daily.

The WeCroak invitations come at random times and at any moment just like death. When they come, you can open the app for a quote about death from a poet, philosopher, or notable thinker.

You are encouraged to take one moment for contemplation, conscious breathing or meditation when WeCroak notifications arrive. We find that a regular practice of contemplating mortality helps spur needed change, accept what we must, let go of things that don’t matter and honor things that do.

We’ve also added features to make WeCroak work with your modern life.
• WeCroak only sends notification between 7 AM and 10 PM
• Open the app once per week to keep receiving your five daily WeCroak invitations at randomized times

And don't forget, We Croak.

    Cannot receive notifications, this app has a small task to do, but even falling shot of that. I paid for it as I liked the idea. But it's just leading to frustrating now. Development team: when can we expect this to be fixed ? Full Review

    This app is supposed to do only one incredibly simple thing. It does not do that one thing. No notifications, even after hitting reset. Why did I pay for this? Full Review

    **update** Ok, so as per adviced received I reinstalled the app. Still failed to receive notifications. Got an update with a reset button. Used that, an that did the trick. I was now getting about 4 notifications a day. Maybe 5 but unfortunately the alerts were completely silent so I may have missed some. Now a few days later we're back to no notifications. *** Ever read an article about this app I was eagerly awaiting for it to arrive to android. But so far what a disappointment! It just doesn't work. Since I installed a few days ago, I have only had 1 notification, maybe 2. And when I open the app it's stuck on the same quotation , which I assume is meant to change 5 times a day? I hope it gets fixed soon. Full Review

    Similar to other reviews, app is very glitchy and notifications fail within a day of reinstalling. Very disappointing :( especially since the basic task of this app is so simple Full Review

    Great idea but the app is very glitchy. Resetting only worked temporarily. Needs major work. Full Review

    For folks having trouble getting the notifications to appear 5X daily, hit the ABOUT button, then RESET. That worked for me (Android on Motorola phone). Full Review

    One notification only and then never sends any more notifications. Opening the app simply has that one quote. Unistall /reinstall, same behavior. Pixel XL. Full Review

    So excited when I first heard about this app. So disappointed when I saw it was iOS only. So excited again now that it's on Android. Such temporal feelings like life itself. Full Review

    Edited: Thanks for the quick fix! ------ Just paid for the app. When I click "get started" it simply reopens back to the Google Play page. Please fix! Full Review

    I love its simplicity, and I never realized that being told at random that you're going to die would be such a good motivation to do something meaningful. Full Review

    Works great!! Sometimes it's easier to understand something by looking at the opposite. WeCroak helps me think more positively about life by forcing me to confront death. Full Review

    I'd like a refund, please. I already uninstalled the app. The so-called notifications only said, "Remember you're going to." What? Get oatmeal? Trip on a paw? Jump from a moving train? Definitely a case of media oversell. Full Review
