About Pocket Ariely

Introducing Pocket Ariely – the greatest app ever created!

Featuring Dan Ariely, renowned behavioral economist, acclaimed speaker, bestselling author of Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, The (Honest) Truth About Dishonesty, Payoff, and stand-in Superman, Pocket Ariely provides you with cutting edge insights from modern decision science.

Just look at what it can do:

READ: life-changing advice from a “genius at understanding human behavior” [James Surowiecki, staff writer at The New Yorker and author of The Wisdom of Crowds], and never make another bad decision!

WATCH: lectures and entertaining videos from “one of my heroes” [George Akerloff, 2001 Nobel Laureate in Economics], and never let anyone else make a bad decision either!

LISTEN: as a man described as “surprisingly entertaining” [USA Today] interviews the leading scientists of the day, and learn everything there is to know about humanity!

PARTICIPATE: work with mad behavioral scientist from my lab at Duke, the Center for Advanced Hindsight, and solve humanity's most perplexing puzzles in finance, health, productivity, and the list goes on and on!

With Pocket Ariely in your pocket, you can take Dan Ariely with you wherever you go. You’ll be happier (since you’ll never make another bad decision), healthier (since you’ll never make another bad decision), wealthier (since you’ll never make another bad decision) and wiser (yes, you guessed it: since you’ll never make another bad decision). We almost guarantee it!

Why should you pay for this app? Think about how much you spend on coffee on a weekly basis... maybe $5/week for that Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks? Or how much money you waste on products you don’t need. Just think: you could improve your life forever by saving your lunch money and bringing a salad to work on just a couple occasions. Your waistline may thank you, too! But most of all, think about how the purchase of this app will help the blossoming field of behavioral economics, as all profits will be put toward research being conducted at Dan Ariely’s Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke University.

So, by buying this app, you are ensuring its future existence and getting a shot of feeling-good hormones! Thank you in advance for helping science.

Irrationally yours,

by Z####:

I cracked the app so I don't have to pay for this.

by W####:

It's a nice consolidation of much of what is freely available on YouTube, Ted and various blogs. I'm sure in future with more exclusive content it'll be worth paying for but right now I don't think it is.

by D####:

The app asks for a monthly or yearly subscription without even describing what the app does. As a long time supporter, I am deeply disappointed in this product presented by Mr. Ariely. We might be irrational, but asking for a subscription on the opening screen is CRAZY!

by V####:

Dan, i believe you have miserably failed here in predicting the behaviour of the users, ratings of this app is heading anywhere (Because it is not free of cost). How somone is supposed to pay without even experiencing it?? , terrible.

by U####:

Really? Payment information on the first screen?

by I####:

Doesn't let you in without paying.

by T####:

Disappointed that this is the output of a group in the business of behaviour change

by L####:

You have to buy the app, but you only find out once it's installed. Is it a 'nudge' - or just a way around paying to the app store?

by S####:

Tries to charge you money without even being able to see what it does first. Bizarre.

by G####:

Wasted my time..Is it part of some kind of your sneaky study .If it's not, so sad that you violated basic principle of everything you teach..At least let people watch your free blog and YouTube

by Q####:

Fantastic app! It is well worth the money. All the other comments did not even give it a chance. They obviously did not read the details about the free trial! Very useful and informative. Before installing Pocket Ariely, I was unmotivated, prone to sudden mood changes, and deeply unhappy. Now,things that took me hours of work only take minutes, my boss compliments me every day, and I found my husband from dating advice on the app!!! I also followed Prof Ariely's advice on invest all my money into Golden Corral coupons, which has paid off big time and I'm already shopping for my next Villa houses in San Francisco!!!

by B####:

When demand for payment is the first interaction you know it is going to be a terrible experience. Let me use it, show me it's valuable then let's talk about cost.

by M####:

Before even being able to see what the app has to offer, it blocks you with this subscription window. Before I'm going to sign up to potentially pay for a monthly subscription, I'd like to be able to see what the application is all about. The video about with the octopus is nice, but it doesn't let me see the app in a functional state.

by P####:

It is irrational to believe that anyone would want to subscribe to this app immediately upon the first open. On the other hand, it's completely predictable that this app has 99% uninstalls within 30 sec.

by X####:

People who gave this one star were not exaggerating. You can't even see what the app does before you tell it how much money you'll give them. Terrible. 0 thought put into the app. I love Dan Ariely but this only has his name. I can't say if it has anything more since I wasn't going to pay on the off chance it might.

by O####:

People giving this 1 star are being idiots. You subscribe up front but your first month is free. So you do get to see ALL of the features before actually paying anything and you can cancel before the first payment if you're not interested. It's the same with Netflix and other subscription services... why is THIS such an issue.

by K####:

It's a great app.

by H####:

Free App?

by N####:

It doesn't remind you before it charges subscription fee after a month.

by E####:

Useless, worthless.

by C####:

It is not a free app. Reported.

by F####:

You have to pay to use, not a free app.

by Y####:

I have no intention to commit to pay (and later cancel) just to see what the app does, no matter who's name is on it

by J####:

First screen requires you to make a purchase. This is useless if you want to try for free.

by R####:

Ariety should have known already that it is not a good idea to ask for a payment before the user has tried the app features. Epic failure

by A####:

I subscribed, I saw, and I did not like it. I subscribed just to see what the app does, but it is merely an interface to all contents produced by Ariely. The app does not directly help in managing behavioural issues. Rather, it teaches about them, which is another thing entirely.

by Z####:

Loved the app! Absolutely amazing and worth having it on the phone! I personally love all the Sir Dan Ariely's books, social experiments and his dedication towards the work. To those who have rated with one start: Dear friends, yes, the app contains with lots of videos, audios and others valuable information for a reasonable cost (certainly not for free) but it's important to know that the money goes to the fund of created by the Sir Dan Ariely's work fund (which shall be primary be used for the work) so that many people can get benefited at large!

by W####:

Not free. It's kind of sad that some developers still don't understand that there is the opportunity to make a lot of money and still give out your service for free (Facebook is just one of many examples). Just all around a bad business model that won't last.

by D####:

Love his books but it looks like it just links to his videos and articles. A behavioural psychologist should have known that people would be furious at a 'free app' that then springs a subscription fee on them. Also, who the heck has ever had a desire to be in people's pocket, what the!!!
