Unstuck named to top app lists for learning and help with ADHD

We’re not very good at bragging, but we received a couple of accolades recently that we thought deserved some attention because they might help you or someone you know.

Just today, the website Noodle, which focuses on education resources for pre-K through graduate studies, named Unstuck to its list of “32 Most Innovative Online Educational Tools to Use in 2015.” The editors say that Unstuck “is great for working through issues that others might not have time to discuss with you, or that might be too personal for you to discuss with someone else.” Exactly!

Earlier this month, Unstuck also made the “30 Best Apps for ADHD Minds,” created by ADDitudeMag.com, which provides strategies and support for ADHD and LD. Unstuck, they say, “helps free up your ADHD brain when it gets knotted.” Yes — with clarity comes control.

Naturally, we’re honored to be noticed for the effectiveness of our app. read more

Ever notice how really good things happen when you’re not looking for them? You’re going about your business, striving to do the best you can, and seemingly out of the blue, welcome news arrives. That’s exactly what happened to us in December when someone told us Unstuck was part of the Best of 2012 on the App Store.

We’re honored, of course. And humbled. And very, very pleased with the grouping Apple put us in. Click here, toggle to iPad, and you’ll find Unstuck as one of six iPad apps deemed as Hidden Gems. “These fantastic apps are the outliers — they don’t fit neatly into categories, but they impressed us by riding trends or forging new ones,” says Apple. 

We’re grateful to Apple, and to you, for making Unstuck a part of your life. Happy New read more

Reflection on our recent awards

| May 4, 2012

Unstuck has won several distinctions this spring:

• Webby Award for Best Lifestyle App for Tablet• People’s Voice Webby Award for Best Lifestyle App for Tablet• An Appy Award for Best Lifestyle App

These industry accolades, we have to admit, have us giddy—who doesn’t like to be liked?  But awards, for us, are not just about popularity and validation. We see them as a good way to build awareness and invite more people to get Unstuck.

Our goal at Unstuck is to help people realize that getting stuck is okay because there are techniques to get unstuck. And every time you get unstuck, your life gets better in some way. Just imagine if some aspect of everyone’s life got better once month. We might not solve the world’s economic woes, but we would benefit from a lot less stress, negative emotions, and unhappiness—all the things that keep us from being, thinking, and creating at read more

You can help us win a Webby Award

We’re not in the business of winning awards, and yet, in the past couple of months the Unstuck app has been honored with an Appy, and recently nominated for a Webby.

It’s gratifying to have your work recognized, but we don’t enter these competitions so we can feel good about ourselves (okay, maybe just a little). Seriously, our goal with award-winning is to help spread the word about Unstuck. The more momentum the app receives (and we’re on a good roll), the more we’re able to continue to create new kinds of Unstuck experiences for you.

At the end (and beginning and middle) of the day, our aim is to create a movement that helps people live better. That, in turn, will help other people live better. And on and on.

If you’re with us, please take a minute to vote for Unstuck in the People’s Voice read more

Getting creative with Unstuck

| January 5, 2012

We’re only a little surprised by how broadly the creative community has embraced the Unstuck app. When you think about it, artistic folk are likely to get stuck more often as they continually strive to devise something new, striking, clever, unusual, unique. That’s a lot of pressure. And staying stuck is not really an option, especially if it’s how you make your living.

Today we’re enjoying the company of four other apps that were specifically designed to spur creativity and are listed, along with us, in Unplggd’s recent post “Apps to Get Inspired, Unstuck or Jumpstart Your Creativity.” We’re happy we can read more

A single approach to diverse problems

| December 28, 2011

By designing our app for anyone who wants to make a situation better, Unstuck casts a wide net.  Our approach is topic-agnostic, so it works for any kind of stuck moment.  Now that it’s been available for three weeks, it’s a pleasure to see how the app is being used and promoted in fresh and surprising ways.

• The New Yorker’s Goings On blog finds it a tempting alternative to New Year’s resolutions.

• MediaBistro’s GalleyCat recommends Unstuck for overcoming writer’s block.

• Similarly, Creative Blizzard calls it a brainstorming tool for advertising professionals.

• Customer service expert Mike Wittenstein predicts our approach will be used for product selectors on retail shelves.

• On Oprah.com,  the blogger used it to get to the root of a family problem, and says it works for all big decisions, like jobs, relationships, read more

Unstuck is New Yorker’s digital pick

| December 22, 2011

This morning we chalked up one more reason to love “The New Yorker.” In the “Goings On” blog, the Unstuck app was named “digital pick” by senior web producer Sally Errico. She recommends Unstuck as an alternative to New Year’s resolutions, which, she says, seem a little frivolous, given the current state of the world. “What’s needed is planning, action, and maybe even some austerity measures—which is why the Unstuck iPad app, offered for free, is a tempting download.”

Succumb to temptation, Sally. Download Unstuck read more

“Unstuck is a brilliant app”

| December 14, 2011

Hey, we’re not bragging—that’s what Lifehacker called it today in a short but very sweet app review on their blog. The admiration is mutual. The blog is a steady, thoughtful stream of new ways to get things done. And that makes life better.

UPDATE: Unstuck made Lifehacker’s “This Week’s Top Downloads” list, sharing space with the likes of Google, Microsoft, and iTunes. It’s nice to keep such good read more

Named App of the Week by AppAdvice

| December 11, 2011

Yesterday, AppAdvice wrote a spot-on review of Unstuck, including “We are all responsible for our own results, and Unstuck provides some great tools to help us out.” Today, the site followed up by naming Unstuck one of the best new and updated iPad apps of the week. Such praise is gratifying, and we hope these mentions will spread the word. Because, in the end, Unstuck’s mission is not to win awards but to help people live better through community and by using innovative methods, such as those in the read more
