Bad Habit-Banishing Apps

'Social ReHub' is the New Rehab for Your Questionable Behavior

— November 11, 2013 — Tech
Do you have that one friend who won't stop swearing in public? Or that friend who just won't stop biting his nails? A start-up based in Israel and Romania has developed a new app called 'Social ReHub,' which helps you and your friends get over bad habits in a fun way!

Everyone has a bad habit, whether it is nail biting, swearing, not turning off lights, overspending etc. 'Social ReHub' calls attention to your bad habit by logging it to your smartphone app. Friends and users can set up customized social groups that display their bad habit and engage in a tip jar. Each time someone catches the other violating, the poll increases and the user with the most polls must pay the 'fine.' Users can also take photographic proof incriminating the violator!
Trend Themes
1. Behavioral Change Apps - Apps that identify and help change negative behaviors are becoming more popular, presenting opportunities for innovative app development.
2. Social Group Tracking Apps - Apps that allow users to create social groups for tracking and motivating behavior present opportunities to integrate social support with habit change.
3. Fun-based Habit Change - Fun-based approaches to habit change, such as gamification or social rewards, are gaining popularity and could present new opportunities for innovative habit-change apps.
Industry Implications
1. Health and Wellness - Apps that help people track and improve their daily habits and behaviors may find a home in the health and wellness industry, promoting healthy lifestyles and preventative care.
2. Education - Behavior tracking apps could be used in educational settings, tracking and motivating positive classroom behaviors in a fun and engaging way.
3. Productivity - Apps that focus on changing bad work habits, such as time management or procrastination, could be used in the productivity industry to help people work more efficiently and effectively.
