Uloo – behind the scenes
What is Uloo?
Uloo.me is a mobile app which connects people having the same self-improvement objective. Moreover, our users can send and receive motivational cards across the world to boost your daily motivation. That way, each user, in a very individual way, get the support to achieve his or her personal goal.
What does "Uloo" stand for?
Uloo stands for Ulive only once. Also, "ulloo" in Hindi means "owl". In our app you can send cards to other people, that initially were called owls.
How is Uloo different?
In contrast to other motivational apps, with Uloo you are in contact with real people. So you will send motivational messages to real people and you will receive cards from real people. You can ask them for advice, share your experience and talk about your achievements.
Who is Uloo for?
Uloo is for everyone! Everyone who wants to achieve a goal is welcome to join. If you believe – like us – that you can learn a lot from others and that sharing experiences plays an important role in achieving your goal, then Uloo is just the right fit for you.
How can I support Uloo?
You can get the app and be an active part of our community by spreading positivity among our users.
If you want to spread motivation and positivity outside of our app – and help Uloo to grow - you can do this by purchasing our Motivational Stickers. This is an easy way to spread good vibes, at your workplace, at home or in your city.

Can I change my goal?
Yes. To change your goal, navigate to your profile and press the button with the pen next to your goal. You will see a button "Change Goal".
Can I have multiple goals at the same time?
No. We believe that focusing on a single objective at a time increases the chances of success. Of course, once you consider that objective finished, you can create a new one or change it, if you feel that it is time to go in a different direction.
What is a squad?
In the Uloo app you can join a squad. Squads are groups of a maximum of 8 people who have the same or a similar objective. By sharing personal experiences, achievements and failures on the road to success, squad-mates help each other to progress. This is what makes our squads so special: real people are growing together.
What is a card?
A card is what you send to other people in order to motivate them. It consists of a quote and a personal message. You can choose from 3 quotes, or, if you don’t like any of them, you can refresh the screen by scrolling down. After that you can write a personal message to the person you want to motivate.
How can I find the inspiration to write a card?
Uloo is based on the cards you send to people. After having chosen the right quote, you should take some time to think about what to write. When sending a card, you can get some inspiration from the light bulb on the screen.
Here are some general guidelines to write a good card:
- Share your experience: if you had/have a similar goal: what are your difficulties? How did you overcome them? Do you know a good app that helped you?
- Motivate the other: if you already achieved this goal, tell them that it is worth the struggle.
- Treat each other with respect.
We created some examples of what a good card could look like:
I have been meditating for 1 year now and it helped me a lot! I included it in my daily routine, so that I never miss a session. Keep going, I am sure it will help you the way it helped me.
I really love your goal! Good luck with it! And whenever you feel like giving up: remember why you started! 😉
Wouldn’t it be great to get one of those?
How can I save cards that I received?
All cards that you receive will be saved on the world map on the home screen. After having read a card, you can press "save the card", and it will be saved your album. Your album is like your personal wall of motivation. To see your albums go to your Profile and press see albums.
