Hey ๐Ÿ˜ธ, 3 years ago, I decided that I would eat less meat*. After a couple of weeks (ok, probably days), it became impossible to get an idea of how much Iโ€™d changed. It was discouraging. I wanted the simplest app, one that would ask me โ€œDid you eat meat today?โ€ at the end of the day via push notification, and I would be able to answer without opening the app. So I built that and started using it right away.๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ฒ But logging is half the job. I needed to see the history, and thatโ€™s when I got carried away. I imagined that Iโ€™d attract cows ๐Ÿ„ for my meatless meals and that they would graze on my planet ๐ŸŒŽ, which would also serve as the โ€œNOโ€ meat button. My cow rewarding system brought the flexibility I wanted: have another meatless meal within 8 days, and your cows will stick around. Otherwise, theyโ€™ll start to leave. So you can be on a "pseudo streak" and keep attracting cows even if you do eat meat (unless you opt for the veg(etari)an goal). Also, looking at my history of meals is really helpful to decide if that burger will have meat or if I have to test my will and choose the meatless option. More generally, it helps me balance my diet. I call all of that asking Naomi ๐Ÿฎ, my cowch. Fast forward 2.5 years: I discovered that other people wanted it ๐Ÿคฏ. So I decided it was time to stop the side project mode (you know, when you add all the latest SDK features but never really complete any) and publish the first version. After all, I was the living proof it worked. So hereโ€™s my app: silly, simple, fun, cute, rewarding, flexible and respectful of your privacy. Yeah, Iโ€™m weird, I donโ€™t track a single thing you do besides Apple's reports and purchases (wink @RevenueCat), and you can export all your data in JSON. Only on iOS. Android fan? Motivate me here: https://airtable.com/shrc0YABm2w... ๐Ÿ™Œ Thank you @chrismessina for hunting No Meat Today and for being sincerely committed to helping others. #YouRock ๐Ÿ‘‰ https://nomeat.today * Iโ€™m not here to advocate anything, I decided that based on a mix of factors (environment - thereโ€™s more to it than climate change -, ethics, finance, health) and I am still trying to figure out how far I should go. Iโ€™m not here to tell anyone what they should do, only to offer a friendly app to those who want to do the same.

@abeykoshyitty Glad it made you laugh, I'm having a lot of fun with this project. I tend to forget the jokes I put inside the app, so I often end up giggling even though I wrote them.

Congrats Arnaud! Not that long that shifted to a plant based diet and dont think ill ever go back to eating meat. Yet super cool idea. Simple but meets its purpose. I am actually building an app myself but more of a plant based restaurants directory.. Kinda Happycow but free and "opensource" where people submit their own fav places and they go straight to the app. All done with no code and will be avaialable for iOS and Android. Integrating, airtable, typeform and using zapier. Im part of Bravo Studio team so if you wish to do the android version we could help you out building it super fast. DM me and we can look into it. Will pass on your app among friends!

Thanks for making this @sowenjub ! Very playful, and I'm glad you kept the app simple with no user tracking. Experiencing a bug where I can't save my target number of meatless days at the moment though โ€“ if I drag the slider to anything more than 0 and press 'Save', the slider is reset back to 0 again, with that screen still open [iOS 13.3.1]. Edit: same goes for the meals per day setting โ€“ can't increase past 1 :(
