Description

Solace is a free mobile application, currently region-locked to the USA, for transgender men, women, and individuals, as well as the parents and guardians of transgender children. Users are able to map out their transition, access credible information on how to accomplish their legal, medical, and social goals, stay informed about news that may impact their goals and rights, and track their progress.

With Solace, users can learn how to accomplish goals like updating the name and gender marker on their legal ID, coming out to friends and family, and learning what legal rights they may have (or not) in their state. For instance, if one of the user's goals is to update their legal documentation, Solace will show the steps for their state/territory, what documentation the user will need to provide, etc.

Solace also provides information on accessing gender-affirming medical services, signing up for Medicaid, and finding mental healthcare.

By providing the current information relevant to each specific goal and then allowing users to mark the task complete, Solace empowers our users to complete these tasks with confidence and see themselves moving forward through their transition in real time.

At any time, users can also browse Solace’s Discover page to see a full list of all the actions and goals (currently 1000+ in total) that Solace provides information for. If users discover something that they didn’t realize was possible for them before, they can add it to their road map at any time.

Solace is designed to allow transgender individuals to define transition on their own terms. Solace makes no suggestion as to what a ‘complete’ transition looks like, and instead is there to affirm the user and celebrate them each step of the way.

The application customizes the experience based on the user's pronouns (that can be fully editable), and state of residence to maximize the relevancy of the information and provide maximum affirmation.

Solace also provides users with ways to sequence their more complex goals that require multiple steps. Every goal is tracked against a progress bar, which can serve as a helpful reminder that you are making progress in your transition. And everyday, Solace will have a new welcome message that leverages the app’s Dynamic Language and Artificial Emotional Intelligence (AEQ).

Solace includes ultra-light weight reminders, a coaching service, and other tools that make gender transition easier.

Hey!

Personally I love this, it’s really helpful for me (I’m a minor who hasn’t come out to anyone except for one of my friends) but I also have a couple suggestions for the app.I feel like being able to change your name would be a rly nice idea for the app I haven’t found a name for myself that I’m comfortable using so I instead used a nickname of mine but some people don’t have that and having to pick a name on the spot is hard, being able to track your progress would be nice a example of what I mean is having a notes section In the app where you can write down things like a diary adding photos would be nice too!Another thing I thought that would be nice is having a section telling you to take care of yourself (idk I thought it would be cute).Little tips would also be nice and just having little achievements(finding the right name, coming out to a friend ).Of course these are just some small suggestions sorry if this wasn’t as constructive as I hoped!The app rn is rly good and recommend it for other trans folk!! hopewhoeverisreadingthishasanicedaythankyoubye.

Hoping for a bit more enby inclusion

So far from what I’ve seen, it has some pretty awesome resources, but a fair amount of the language and such is quite binary. For example, the text regarding top surgery, or subcutaneous mastectomy starts with “This is a big step for a lot of men...” which is true, but it’s also a big step for plenty of enby people, too.

It would be nice to have more acknowledgement that these are goals for us, too. And even recognition that not all of these goals are actually available to non-binary people, such as which states let people have a gender marker other than M/F and which don’t, the fact that no federal paperwork currently lets us have a correct gender marker, etc.

I suspect the verbiage will become more inclusive as the devs get feedback, so I’m looking forward to more inclusive language and goals.

A good foundation

I love this idea and I’m glad there’s an app already out for it. Developers have been working on an app called Transcapsule for a while and it’s still not out, so this works in the mean time. However, this is is still SUPER built for people who are transitioning within the binary. Other than pronoun designation, there’s not much about being non-binary/genderfluid/genderqueer which I found to be disappointing. Also it would be great to have the ability to change your name as some people go through multiple name changes before settling on one permanently. Lastly, having the ability to diary/journal your emotions, thoughts, upload voice memos, photos, videos, etc. would be really great for those who are medically transitioning and wanting to track that process. There are mental health tracking apps that provide charts and easy “check-ins” that could serve as an outline for things like this within this app that have been tailored more towards trans folx and experiences.

Looking forward to what’s coming next! Thanks for such an amazing idea and producing it!
