A systematic approach to achieving goals and getting results.

New GoalsOnTrack iPhone and iPad Apps

We are excited to announce the launch of new GoalsOnTrack iPhone and iPad (iOS7 style) mobile app, called “GoalsOnTrack App”. It’s available on App Store and ready for download now. Simply search for “goalsontrack” on App Store. This version is a complete redesign of the old iPhone app and is especially optimized for iPad users.

The new version has been designed to be fast, responsive, easier to use and more consistent with current web app. It syncs seamlessly across the iPhone, iPad and web versions. Now the app supports offline mode, where you can use the app without an internet connection. All your changes will be cached locally on your device and can be later synced with the server incrementally.


If you are new to GoalsOnTrack, please note that the new GoalsOnTrack iOS app is for current members only. So you will need an active account/login to access and use the app. If you have an older version of the iPhone app, please remove the old version and then re-install the new version to avoid crashes or potential sync problems.

We are always improving and would love to hear your feedback and suggestions. So please let us know what you think and tell us if there is any feature we can improve or add. Thanks!

Smaller Goals for Bigger Results

But when you feel overwhelmed, stretch goals can create paralysis and result in procrastination. When you set your goals too high, you might find it overwhelming and too time consuming. You just give up or keep on changing your goals instead of slowly and steadily working through the baby steps to a bigger goal. Read more
