Bupa's 'Quitclock' Facebook app now online
Published by Martin Kleppmann on 01 Jan 2009.
Just a brief note to say that the
Quitclock Facebook application which
I developed for the
health insurance company Bupa has now been officially launched
(see the press release).
Purpose of the application is to help people who want to give up smoking. Users can enter the date when they
stopped smoking, and get updates on how much money they have saved, display a box on their profile,
get support messages etc. The application was launched now because many people try to give up
smoking as their new year’s resolution.
The application is hosted on Google App Engine, marking my
first real-life use of GAE. It has been a bit frustrating at times, and I may post some more
comments about my App Engine experience at some later stage.
