Goalship is suitable for anyone who has one or more goals in their life and owns a smartphone. Both children and young people who have school or sports goals, for example, as well as students, professionals or seniors who still want to realize dreams can benefit from Goalship.

The use of Goalship is free of charge.

To register, all you need is your cell phone number and a user name of your choice. However, your friends can find you better if you also enter your real name.

Via the menu item "Goals" (at the bottom in the middle) you can create a new goal with the button "New goal". Add description and date, invite friends (or set it to "public") and optionally add a picture.
After creating your goal, you can find it under the "My" tab in the goals section (bottom navigation menu).

Yes, enable the "public goal" option when creating the goal (or later). The goal will then be visible to all Goalship users under the "Public" tab.

If you have been invited to a goal, you can

  • Promise rewards for reaching the goal
  • give good tips via the chat function
  • add a reaction (emoji)

Even your presence already helps to motivate the goal setter!

When you share your cell phone contacts, it automatically checks which of your contacts are already using Goalship. You can find them via the "Find friends" button, invite them to Goalship and send friend requests. Those who don't use Goalship yet, you can invite them by clicking the share icon. A pre-written invitation text will appear, which you can modify according to your preferences.

When you create a goal, you can select from all your Goalship contacts the people who can see the goal. If you want to add or remove someone later, use the "Edit Goal" function via the three-dot menu in the Goal's detail view.
When you share your goal publicly, everyone can see it, participate in it, and comment on it.

When someone sees your goal, they can support you. Through good tips, a motivating response, through rewards, or just by participating. Moreover, your friendship is strengthened when you know each other's goals and plans.

The Rewards should be redeemed after the goal has been achieved and should be a nice shared finish to the goal. Since the redemption of the rewards takes place in real life and outside of Goalship, we cannot influence whether this actually happens. When and if a reward is redeemed is up to you.

If you want to add a blocked user to your circle of friends again, you must first unblock them and send them a friend request.

Public goals can be found using the search function. Enter there the appropriate keywords, the name of the creator or directly the identification number of the goal.
