"The jar of nice and good"

Marble Jar is an application addressed to parents who want to raise responsible kids who develop good habits. How to use it? Just think of a goal, set up a jar and track the progress with the marbles.

The app proposes two ways of using it: firstly for short-term goals like checklists and unlocking a privilege (camping trip, later bedtime) once they've achieved it. Secondly, it's also possible to use it for long-term goals related to personal development, such as being nicer and selfless. Each time they do an action well (for example: preparing her room) a marble is earned and once the jar is full they can unlock the privilege.

This is definitely a good idea for parents and kids to decide together and set some goals, an easier way to visualize the progress and a great way of encouraging them to do their homework, be more patient or even share their toys. They can learn about constant work and being persistent about what they do.

The design and graphics are really well done and once you learn what it's about it's fairly easy to create the jars, set the number of marbles and start using them. winwin LLC is the developer of Marble Jar, their only app for the moment. Given the good idea and development, they could really try to create another similar app for kids, as they're pretty popular at the moment.
