Find happiness by contemplating your mortality with the WeCroak app. Each day, we’ll send you five invitations at randomized times to stop and think about death. It’s based on a Bhutanese folk saying that to be a happy person one must contemplate death five times daily.

The WeCroak invitations come at random times and at any moment just like death. When they come, you can open the app for a quote about death from a poet, philosopher, or notable thinker.

You are encouraged to take one moment for contemplation, conscious breathing or meditation when WeCroak notifications arrive. We find that a regular practice of contemplating mortality helps spur needed change, accept what we must, let go of things that don’t matter and honor things that do.

We’ve also added features to make WeCroak work with your modern life.
• WeCroak only sends notification between 7 AM and 10 PM
• Open the app once per week to keep receiving your five daily WeCroak invitations at randomized times

I adore this app! When I’m procrastinating on my work, mindlessly scrolling through the social media posts of people I haven’t seen in 20 years & don’t particularly like, & one of these reminders pop up, it reminds me that I’ve got goals that aren’t going to reach themselves. Thank you for this brilliant app.


Can I save the quotes?

I’m enjoying this as I’ve been looking for a momento mori and this fits the bill really well. Any chance of saving the quotes once they’ve appeared? And do you have an infinite number to keep you going, until the end?


To shuffle off this mortal coil...

I like the app....ok, the concept is quite simple; you are going to die so contextualising your consciousness with that realisation (hopefully) makes you value life and the here and now more.
