It's safe to say we've all been bored or thought there was nothing more to be done. In those cases, it's extremely useful to have an app that thinks for you and proposes random stuff to be done. Yes, just as it sounds: app's interface consists of an only, big "shuffle" button and a secondary button to tweet any great achievements you fulfill.
By way of an example, you can be asked to get in touch with someone with a first name beginning with L (Lydia, how long!), meditate for five minutes or check in somewhere. If a feat is unfeasible or if you aren't craving for it, you can always tap again and read a new task.There's no score nor any other competitive meaning, it's just a random task generator to spice up your daily routine, which worst case scenario is you tapping over just to read feats without actually doing any of them. Perhaps it'd be nicer with an option to create and send your own tasks, or at the very least a filter to avoid having geocaching tasks when you are in a coffee break or in your mother-in-law home.
They are harmless actions, this is not a truth or dare game. However, some of them are surreptitious advertising, but it seems a legit part of the deal. In addition, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to know how much potential this app has, so we'll have to keep an eye on it in the near future.
