BetterMe is an app for people who will try anything to better themselves. The app uses public humiliation to help keep your appointments, to achieve your goals, and to jump out of bed in the mornings.
Features include an alarm clock, goal tracking, and GPS check-ins system to keep your recurring appointments. If you fail, each of these features will humiliate you by posting a message on your Facebook wall.
GPS Check-ins: First input the address and time of your gym, class, or work schedule. Then the app will use GPS to check if you arrived at your destination on time. If not, then you will be shamed on Facebook!
Goals: Goals are announced on Facebook. It asks your friends to hold you accountable. The app will later ask if you have achieved your goal and if not then you will be shamed on Facebook.
Alarm: Snooze this alarm clock and receiving a shaming immediately.

It doesn't work.
On 4S iOS 7.04
Unable to connect to Facebook because Cancel button hovers over button to confirm login. Then subsequent attempts to connect Facebook crash the app.
Unable to complete scheduling alarms because calendar doesn't appear.
Unable to assign locations app crashes as animation starts to zoom to map location.
The app works exactly as promised. I had to reinstall to get it to work the first time but no big deal.
A few tips to make it easier to use:
1) the buttons seem kind of picky at times. You have to be really careful and accurate.
2) the dismiss / snooze buttons should be larger. Without my glasses in the morning it's hard to see what they say / hit it accurately.
3) an option for the alarm to crescendo would be really nice.
4) a link to your site in the app with a donate here button. I love trying free apps and when I find one I'll use on a daily basis, I donate to the developer.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
