1. Happify

Founded by three serial entrepreneurs (Tomer Ben-Kiki, Ofer Leidner, and Andy Parsons) in New York City in 2012, Happify aims to change people’s lives by providing ways to become happier. As stated by its founders, the purpose of the app is to use gaming and technology to build a better life for its users.

After you download the app and create an account, Happify will score your happiness based on a questionnaire. The questions are all about the smallest details in your life, particularly your health. Then, the app provides you with a series of tracks that you can use to start living a healthy, stress-free life.

Every track has a theme that is further divided into parts. Each part is then divided into various sets of activities, including guided meditations, writing assignments, and exciting games. As a basic free user, you are entitled to a few tracks with limited access. If you upgrade to the premium product (Happify Plus), you get to enjoy unlimited access to more than 30 tracks.

Happify is available on desktop, tablet, and mobile. If you want to start increasing your happiness based on scientific evidence-based research, you might want to try this app.

2. SuperBetter

SuperBetter was originally founded and invented by Jane McGonigal, a researcher and game designer. She is also a TED Talker and a bestselling writer.

In 2015, the game was acquired by Keith Wakeman, who turned it into a corporation now known as SuperBetter, LLC. Along with the game, Wakeman also acquired the trust of McGonigal, who is now the company’s chief science officer.

The app aims to help people build grit and resilience, and develop the ability to stay strong, persistent, and positive despite all the challenges that life may throw at them. It is based on a framework called Live Gamefully, which brings out your heroic strengths and gives you a better mindset.

SuperBetter works by providing you with daily activities that you can track until you reach your goal. It uses a point system, and you gain points for each step you complete. Such steps include taking a walk or drinking a glass of water.

What’s great about this app is that you can actually be a superhero if you like—you can collect power-ups, win against bad guys, and get help from friends and allies.
