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 have truly loved this app. But it just went from an app that provided me with enlightening quotes by historic figures and luminaries to providing me with a quote by a fresh new fringe politician. I’m scratching my head at what went into this decision. Please don’t politicize this amazing and thoughtful app.
Good theme...Yet the quotes/reminders are canned and not pragmatically useful,
I love the variety of quotes and how pertinent they are to my life! Keep up the good work!!
The quotes are bizarre and sometimes political. Just set a daily calendar reminder instead of wasting a dollar.
I love this app. I use it to remind me to do a brief meditation each time. I had thought about using a timer, but I like the randomness of this, and of course impermanence is one of the reasons we meditate—we don’t know how long we will have the opportunity. I like the frog graphic on the icon too. I wish there were an archive of the quotes. Some of them are so good, but then they disappear—just like we will!
Can we have a filter to exclude quotes from dimwitted politicians?
Who would have thought that had app about death would be so inspirational? Thank you to the app architects and the people of Bhutan!
Love the concept, but not the app. Instead of forcing us to click the app each time we get a notification, can you just have it so it notifies us ahead of time a quick snippet of the app? Also, make a widget for it so that I can read these quotes when I look at my calendar.
I thought I would install this app and quickly get tired of it, especially with so many notifications every day. But I’ve had it for a few months and I still really enjoy it. I do agree with another reviewer that the quotations aren’t always the most pertinent to death, but I’m impressed that they’ve found so many interesting ones. I’ve rarely seen the same one twice. I also appreciate that they give you the author of the quotation. Nice work!
I know, what do you expect for ninety nine cents. But this must have been written by a novice programmer. I was in a meeting all day, off my phone. I had five contacts but could only open one. You can’t go back and open past ones. Most of the sayings are not that moving or worth saving. Only way to save is a screen shot. Out of about twenty so far, I screensaved only one.
Good app but many of the quotes are general inspirational quotes rather than reminding us of death, which is the promise of the program- eg today’s-William Blake “A fool does not see the same tree a wise man does.” Yes, but where is the reminder of death in that?
Well, I’ll be damned. Or not. Either way, this app is truly making me feel better about life. The quotes range from thought provoking to belly tickling and are culturally diverse, from Mark Twain to Octavia Butler to Buddha. It makes me smile whenever the notification pops up. Thank you, KKIT, for improving my quality of life through thoughts of death. xox Kate
Wonderful app- not just about death and dying, but also about mindful living, often with gentle humor. I cannot recommend it enough!
Poor execution of a good idea. Not sure what the intent was but the outcome was really bad. Yes death is depressing but the messages with this app were such a downer that one would have a hard time getting your head around this concept. I deleted it with in the first day.
I’ve never felt compelled to write a review for an app. Probably because I’m one of those hippies who is trying to spend less time looking at their phone. Well, this app does the trick and then some. It’s a wonderful reminder for me to remain present and not take life for granted. It has actually affected my day-to-day life- small frustrations fall away easier, and I feel more grounded and focused. Worth way more than $1.
The quotes are often very loosely related to death. My phone is always on vibrate. The app never vibrates the phone when a “reminder “ comes. Also doesn’t notify the Apple Watch with either a noise or a haptic. If it’s not going to affirmatively poke me to remind me, then it doesn’t really work.
I have gotten many repeats
I like the concept, but found that the repeated alerts didn’t really remind me of impermanence... just became too repetitive and desensitized the experience.
This app helps me stay grounded throughout the day, and keep my mind focused on what matters
Waiting to see if I’m charged. Download never completed.
Favorite app. Great job. I like it just how it is. My daily life is more interesting and I'm reminded how I want to spend my time. Thanks!
