Supehttps://itunesconnect.apple.com/WebObjects/iTunesConnect.woa/ra/ng/app/536634968/ios/versioninfo/deliverablerBetter increases resilience - the ability to stay strong, motivated and optimistic even in the face of difficult obstacles. Playing SuperBetter makes you more capable of getting through any tough situation—and more likely to achieve the goals that matter most to you.

SuperBetter was created by Jane McGonigal, a world-renowned designer of games to improve real lives & solve real problems.

►► Why play SuperBetter?

SuperBetter has helped nearly half a million people so far achieve personal growth and tackle real-life challenges. Here are reasons people around the world are using SuperBetter:

- To adopt a new habit, develop a talent, learn or improve a skill, strengthen a relationship, make a physical or athletic breakthrough, complete a meaningful project, or pursue a lifelong dream.

- To beat depression, overcome anxiety, cope with chronic illness or chronic pain, heal from physical injury, or recover from post-traumatic stress.

- To overcome a life challenge like finding a new job, surviving divorce, dealing with a career or school setback, or grieving the loss of a loved one.

- To help others: therapists recommend SuperBetter to their patients; university professors incorporate SuperBetter into their student’s coursework; and HR professionals design SuperBetter into their employee wellness incentive programs.

►► SuperBetter is Living Gamefully

“At the heart of SUPERBETTER is a simple and potentially transformative idea: We can use the same psychological strengths we display when we play games to confront real-life challenges, whether it’s illness, injury, or just changing our habits for the better.”
– Daniel H. Pink, bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

Living gamefully means bringing the same psychological strengths you naturally display when you play games – such as optimism, creativity, courage, and determination – to your real life. It means having the courage and openness to try out different strategies to discover what works best. It means collaborating with allies, and building up the resilience to tackle tougher and tougher challenges with greater and greater success.

►► The Science Behind SuperBetter

Powered by the science of games, positive psychology and behavior change.

SuperBetter is validated in two clinical studies:

• A randomized controlled study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania found that playing SuperBetter for 30 days significantly reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety, and increases optimism, social support, and player’s belief in their own ability to succeed and achieve their goals. They also found that SuperBetter users were significantly happier and more satisfied with their lives.

• A clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health and conducted at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital found that using SuperBetter improves mood, decreases anxiety and suffering, and strengthens family relationships during rehabilitation and recovery.

Incredible concept but app needs work


The concept behind SuperBetter is simply incredible. Reaching out, getting stronger and more resilient - it’s something we could all benefit from in life. My only gripe is the app is very glitchy. I have difficulty managing allies and navigating the menus sometimes. With a bit of IT investment I think this could really take off!

Great idea- 1 year ago*?

stoned amplifier

The app won’t recognise the achievements I’ve gained today, it says ‘1 year ago’ next to all of them on the activity page.

I AM doing them!! Honest!!

Seriously though, I’ve only had this app for an hour or so and I've never had it previously, so any suggestions?

Ive hugged myself like 10 times now and it still says ‘never done’ on the To Do page and ‘1 year ago’ on Activity.

If i hug myself any more it’s going to start getting weird.

<3 Can't say enough good things!!!


Tip: It makes a great everyday 'To Do List' app too.. <3 for all those boring everyday tasks..
Give them funny themed names for extra amusement..

I love this app so much!
It's one of my all time favourites... And has been for some years.

It really works so well for me, and I hope it does for you too! :-)
