Goalzie is an innovative new mobile goal-setting app that is designed to challenge young people to make positive changes in their lives by setting goals and taking the necessary steps to achieve their goals. The goals could be something to do with a physical goal or some sort of creative endeavor.

Created by researchers at Western Sydney University in collaboration with young people, the app allows users to self-regulate their behavior, set up rewards for good behavior and punishments for slacking.

What's unique about this goal-setting app is the fact that it was built based on intended users' needs. Whilst youth are often consulted by researchers and campaign-runners, they are often left out of the process of creating. By enlisting the help of young people, this goal-setting app is guaranteed to appeal to its target users.
