Standout Features: 

  • Clear layout
  • Intuitive user journey
  • Prominent CTAs

Each of us aspires to be the best version of ourselves, hence the flood of goal-setting apps on the market, however, Nick Pugliese's latest prospect aims to elevate the usual and refine it, without cutting corners(!).

Aimed at young professionals, Corner adds a layer of accountability to your typical goal-setting process. When other team members count on you, you're bound to start following their lead and count on yourself as well.

In the creator's own words: "One or two skipped days in building a new routine with no accountability lets our goals become easier to fall apart. There has to be a better way to enable ourselves to reach our full potential."

Corner is intuitive and easy to use, simple as that. Alas, goal-setting shouldn't morph into tedious task by itself. It motivates users on both personal and professional levels, adding just enough responsibility to others to let them push forward.
