IMPORTANT NOTICE: Although we’ve heard directly from many users who are using this app and finding it to be quite useful, a number of users have reported via reviews that the app doesn’t work on their phones. We had been planning to remove the app from the iTunes store while we start from scratch to develop a new MotivAider app, but satisfied users--most notably teachers--have urged us to continue to make this app available, so we are doing that while also encouraging others who can wait, to wait for the new app.

MotivAider® For Mobile for iPhone replicates much of the functionality of the MotivAider®, an ingeniously simple dedicated electronic device that was invented by a clinical psychologist to make it easier for people to change their own behavior. The MotivAider® has a truly impressive track record. For over two decades, its helped thousands of people of all ages in over 50 countries make a wide range of life-improving changes.

Like the dedicated MotivAider® device, MotivAider® For Mobile works by correcting for a largely overlooked glitch in the design of the human mind -- the lack of a dependable mechanism for keeping good intentions "on the front burner." The app is designed to automatically keep you focused on making any change you decide to make. It prevents your good intentions from getting lost in the shuffle of a busy mind, a busy life and a busy world.

MotivAider® For Mobile is extremely easy to use. It uses a private prompt to repeatedly trigger your desired behavior.
• First you devise a brief personal message that serves as a trigger or cue to remind and urge you to engage in the desired behavior.
• Then you choose a prompt type - either vibration alone or vibration plus an audible tone - and decide how often to receive prompts.
• Next you simply "associate" your personal message with the prompt so that whenever you feel (and if you choose, also hear) the prompt, youll automatically think your personal message.

Thats all there is to it! Its not just simple. Its effective.

• You can get prompts as often as you like--as often as once every few seconds.
• You can choose whether to get prompts at regular or random intervals.
• You can pause and resume prompting whenever you want.
• You can have prompting stop at a set time every day.
• You can easily tweak your behavior change projects to get the results you want.
• MotivAider® For Mobile helps you be more successful by forcing you to focus on making one change at a time. Once youve made a desired change, you can move on to the next project.

If youre looking for bells and whistles and flashy features and technical acrobatics that wont actually help you achieve results, MotivAider® For Mobile For iPhone is not for you. This app values simplicity and effectiveness over razzle dazzle. It aims to do no more--and no less--than it must do to enable you to achieve your behavior change goals.

MotivAider® For Mobile users can access free habit change resources that help users of the dedicated MotivAider® device achieve great results.
