Posture Pal is a fun, playful but most of all effective way to improve your posture.
No graphs, no alerts, no notifications or complicated screens to remind you to sit up straight. Just start the app, and then forget about it, because Rafi the giraffe will just let them do their thing and will only pop up it's head when you need a little subtle reminder.
You can choose from three friendly characters, Rafi the Giraffe, Haru the Monkey and Paca the Alpaca!
- Change the sensitivity based on how early you want to be warned
- Set an alert delay to allow for some breathing room before warnings
- Choose the location of your posture pal
I think it's a great way to show people what more their AirPods can do. A simple but effective app that hopefully brings a smile to the your face while you work on better posture!
- Added a way to open the onboarding again if you had not given permission the first time
Ratings and Reviews
Creative and so beautiful
I have an incapacitating mental illness so I rely on technology to feel accepted and valid as a human being. This app has helped me so much already in various ways from reducing anxiety levels to just feeling normal again. I cannot really put this into perspective as to how much of a blessing this app has been for me. I hope the developer understands how important and valuable this app truly is.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you 🙏

Does it work? I don’t know. It’s sensitive to every little change in my head movement. If I look down to take a bite of food, bend over to pick something up, or anything else where my head is down it sends an alert.
It might be better if it didn’t notify until it has been a few seconds.
Also, as others have mentioned, I can slouch and have my shoulders up as long as my head is level. This is simply a limitation of motion tracking, but maybe there is something you can come up with to help improve this aspect.
One more thing, app is super buggy on my iPhone 14 Pro. The icons for settings and themes in the top corners do not respond when tapped, when trying to set a custom angle, the menu closes out (works again after resetting the app), and posture tracking sensitivity is grayed out (not sure if this is a bug).
I would love to see more of a professional theme added. As much as I love the cute graphics, something less cutesy might be nice at times. Different sound and vibration options could also be useful and I would love to see an Apple Watch app to easily track time and angle, receive notifications, and start/stop sessions.
Overall, it’s a fun app and I will continue to use it for a bit and see what I think in the long term.
When I saw this app I was so excited. But then I realized that my AirPods were too outdated, so I’m really disappointed. But I’m saving up for a new AirPods so that I can have the motion sensors because this app could literally change my life. Amazing concept and adorable too, I just don’t have the right AirPods for this.
