Think of Brian as your personal trainer for life-goals. Brian will nudge and motivate you to achieve your personal goals. In its most simple form Brian is a way to make notes, save links to blogs, articles, videos, cleverly organised under “Boards”. Boards can be elevated to “Goals” by adding timeframes or importance levels, and this will then trigger nudges which will help you reach your goal.
We all have dreams and passions, of the things we want to achieve, of where we want our life to go. We have moments of inspiration that need capturing… ideas we don’t want to forget.
Our intentions are great, but life can get in the way. This is why we created Brian
We wanted to build software which helps people be the best they can be, using the internet to their advantage and allowing their phones to be their personal life- trainer.

Using AI mixed with cognitive science we will be integrating digital nudging techniques to ensure the app helps you achieve your goals and doesn’t’ become another digital irritation. Nudging could take the form of personalised notifications, encouragement graphs, reminder and reflection emails - all tailored to your personal habits learned through what you’ve told Brian, and how you interact it.
