    Pros:Β 

    Simple, smooth and focused around the vision of the app instead of being flashy & in your face.

    Cons:Β 

    Early days so the pledges are limited. When you pledge to do something and confirm, the confirmation needs to be a bit more obvious!

    The final screen needs to have almost a little dialogue that goes "you've now pledged to do X, fancy reading about it now?" with some generic links to recommended websites/material to materialise this pledge.

    We live in a hyper-consumer world where convenience is key as laziness becomes habit. Having all the resources ready there as soon as the pledge is made would allow the user to really go through with it.

    All in all, I'm excited to see what the future holds for this app. I believe in its belief and hope to see it become the best version of itself soon!

    Crack on boys, you got this! :)

    Pros:Β 

    Simple design and quite empowering. Also great to see what other people care about.

    Cons:Β 

    I'd love the community to be so diverse that I see more causes related to social inequality I can pledge to.

    Would be really interesting for you to start mapping (maybe an infographic) the frequency of different causes by geographic location πŸ€“

This is a pretty neat idea, I've just pledged to buy more ethical food for a month and asked someone to stand up for racist/sexist comments they hear to fight social injustice. Individuals have power to change society and this platform shows that, bravo @kieran_hammond @nicksmithr ✌🏽

Thanks for the love, Product Hunt. Kieran and I built Advocate to enable people to share the causes they truly care about, in a reciprocal way. The mechanism is based on the idea of Moral Trading [http://www.amirrorclear.net/file...] proposed by a philosopher at Oxford recently. This is very much an MVP, so we appreciate as much feedback as possible. If you'd rather give feedback anonymously, you can submit it to us through this form: https://goo.gl/forms/cpBH4kx94ps.... Thanks again, and happy pledging 😘

Love the concept. With more people using this, it has the potential to create a self-reinforcing virtuous cycle of good deeds worldwide. Only other thing that would be a nice to have is the option to target a pledge to one of my friends instead of a random person assigned to me. Either way, looking forward to seeing how this develops!

This is a cool idea! Really looking forward to seeing how this evolves. Next thing I'd personally would like to see most is all the people and the pledges that they've made πŸš€
