HOW STICKK WORKS
1. Think it. — What’s your goal?
2. Define it. — Describe the actions you’re going to take to get there.
3. Materialize it! — Make it a Commitment Contract.
Commitment Contracts are the magic behind stickK that will help you stick to your word. It’s the remedy for procrastination that is backed by over 20 years of behavioral economic research and over 10 years of experience. Oh, and did we mention they’re completely free to create?
• A Commitment Contract is a voluntary, deliberate and binding agreement between *present you* and *future you.*
• By creating a Commitment Contract, you put your goal in writing, set a deadline, and give yourself additional incentives to achieve it.
PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS!
Our 10+ years of experience show us that you are 300% more likely to achieve your goal if you put money on the line. Add Stakes to your Commitment Contract and you’ll increase your chances of success. If you're unsuccessful at your goal, you choose where that money goes. Whether it’s a:
• Friend or Foe (a coworker, your mom, that 4th grade bully - choose anyone!)
• Charity (from a list of 15+ 501(c)(3) organizations)
or our most popular option...
• Anti-Charity (an organization you fervently oppose)
Make an organization you despise work for you.
Research shows that people work harder to ensure that their money never falls into the wrong hands.
Our most popular option, Anti-Charity, allows you to select an organization or foundation that you oppose – or one which promotes values that are contrary to your own – as the recipient of your lost stakes. Make an organization that you despise work for you to increase your chances of success by 630%.
ADD *EXTRA* ACCOUNTABILITY
• Ask friends and family to come support you on your quest!
• Select a Referee that can verify your Reports on your goal.
• Upload pictures to share your progress with your friends and family.
• Track your path from start to finish and achieve behavioral change by recording your thoughts, comments and milestones in your Commitment Journal.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app overall
First off, fantastic app overall - really helps me get things done. One thing I’d like to see changed is the option of setting the “end of commitment” date to the same day or the next day rather than two days after the commitment. Sometimes I want to get a particular task done by the end of the day with a reminder from stickk that evening or the next day rather than two days afterward. Thanks for making this app/website!

We are working hard to bring Daily Reports and different methods of checking into your Commitment Contract in the upcoming months! These are changes that we are very excited to bring to our users due to popular demand. Thank you so much for your thorough feedback - it’s always welcome :) If you are in need of any assistance or have other ideas on how we can improve, simply write us at firstname.lastname@example.org. - The stickK Team
Cool concept but too many bugs
At first I thought this sounded like a good idea. Something that would encourage me to stick with my plan to meet my goals sounded wonderful. So I signed up. Two goals. This app doesn't work properly. Actually the Stickk website has issues too. Right off the bat, I didn't get any reminder emails to update my reports. The website didn't remind me, nor did the app notify me if I had a report due. I contacted them and was taken through a series of checks to see if I had everything set up correctly. I did. So I ended up setting my own reminders in my iCal so I wouldn't forget to submit my reports. The only email reminders I got were AFTER I submitted my report...at that point it would remind me. And I NEVER got reminders from the app either. I don't have much patience for such a buggy system. I mean, seriously, aren't the Stickk people responsible for making sure their system works??? I never missed a report so I didn't lose any money, but I was very put off by the problems. I won't be doing this again.
Developer Response ,
We're very sorry to hear about the issues that you had receiving your Report Reminders. We completely understand how important these reminders are for keeping stickK users on track to hit their goals, and we are more than happy to help make sure you don't run into this issue again.
We are aware of a recent issue that temporarily caused Report Reminders to be delayed or not sent. This was immediately addressed by our tech team who was able to fix the issue to ensure Report Reminders continued sending out in a timely manner. If you find that you're still having trouble getting these reminders, can you reach back out to our support team by emailing support@stickK.com and referencing this review? We'll be able to look into this further from there.
I have been using this app for about a year and found it to be very useful. I had taken down a previous review that was negative for not having a way to correct a report that had a mistake. However, their customer support contacted me, correcting the report and said that a refund was on the way. So all in all, this app has worked out well. The only thing I would ask of them would be for Stickk to add an article on their FAQs or help database on what to do if a reporting mistake had happened. That way, we can alleviate the panic attack of having sent money to an anti-charity. ;)

Thank you very much for taking the time to update your review! As you requested, we have updated our Help Center to include an article related to correcting Reports that were submitted by mistake. We are always striving to make the stickK experience as seamless, intuitive and transparent as possible, and we could not do it without feedback from committed users like you!
