Breaking the mould of traditional expense tracking apps, Taiwan’s indie app developers at Fourdesire know how to use “gamification” to make building good habits fun. In celebration of their expense tracking app Fortune City’s recent 2 year anniversary and over 4 million downloads worldwide, Fourdesire’s limited-time Create Your Dream Life online game allows users to design their own dream room.
The Create Your Dream Life game lets users create a digital collage by personalising their own “paper doll” character and selecting their favourite style of furniture and decorations to decorate the room of their dreams. The game then automatically calculates the total cost of their dream room to show users how building good habits can help them make their dreams come true.
The folks at Fourdesire hope to use “gamification” to address some of the common concerns people all face in the modern world. Other Fourdesire apps, which encourage users to drink more water or get more exercise, have already reached over 20 million total downloads. The Fortune City expense tracking app has received global recognition and support, including Google Play awards and the Red Dot Design Award, among others.
