Tracks your progress toward your goals

Kibotzer tracks your progress toward your goals. Anything you can put a periodic number on works — weight, pushups, number of cigarettes, net worth, or how long it takes you to bike to work. Just answer with your number when kibotzer asks and it will show you your progress and a “yellow brick road” to follow to stay on track.

A big selling point for kibotzer is the data smoothing. With weight loss, for example, it’s discouraging and/or nerve-wracking to see the numbers bounce around day-to-day which is why weight-loss programs typically only ask for weekly weigh-ins. But if you have a random up day on a weekly weigh-in day, that’s really discouraging. Better to get more data and let kibotzer show you the true trend. And you get daily instead of weekly feedback. That’s key.

anything, goals
