Uloo – behind the scenes
What is Uloo?
Uloo is a mobile app which connects people having the same goal. Moreover, our users can book sessions with mentors and coaches to move on with their goals.
What does "Uloo" stand for?
Uloo stands for U live 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 encouragements from real people. You can ask them for advice, share your experience and talk about your achievements.
Who is Uloo for?
Uloo is for all the adventurous people who believe in making their goals come true! 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.

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 quotes and after that you can write a personal message to the person you want to encourage.
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.
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?
I have sent a card but I don't see it?
When you send a card to someone, it will initiate a chat conversation between you both. To ensure the quality of the conversations, the recipient will have to accept this conversation before you can see this conversation in your messages.
How can I have a free session?
To get to know your mentor and vice-versa, you get the first session (15 minutes) for free with every mentor. Just open Uloo and navigate to the profile of a mentor. Then select the session labeled as First session.
I have sent a message to a mentor but nothing happens?
When you send a message to one of our mentors, they have 2 business days to respond. If you haven't received an answer by then, please contact us at [email protected].
