🤓 Tech & Features

What we have been doing since December

  • We have worked on the server-side so that the app can be faster, more cost-effective, and gives us more flexibility in the long term.

What we're working

  • Following the server changes, we are rewriting the app to make it more stable and more efficient.
  • We are improving the announcement in the app so that it's nicer and more useful.
  • Implementing the new daily session system: we have changed how the daily session is picked up so that it's less buggy.
  • Each session has a proper ID now, so when you listen to something, it will never be lost.

What is coming next

  • A section to see your downloaded sessions
  • A search option
  • Deep linking! So that you can share a session with people and it will open in the app
  • A meditation reminder
  • Recommendations about what to listen next

Finances

  • We aren't breaking even yet. However, January is so far the best month for the foundation, with an increase of 34% of donation revenue compared to December.
  • Most of the donations received were single donations.

Cost improvements

  1. We have reduced our monthly server costs by more than 50%.
  2. We have reduced our service costs by more than 800 euros a year.
  3. We should finally be good to move away from Google Play (for in-app donations), moving back to Stripe.
  4. This change will allow the foundation to receive nearly 96% of your donation (instead of 70%).

App usage

  • The app is used on average by 12,000 people each day
  • 2,000 new people install the app each day
  • Most people come from the 🇺🇸 USA, 🇮🇳 India, the 🇬🇧 UK, 🇨🇦 Canada & 🇩🇪 Germany
  • We served more than 8TB of data
  • The server received more than 16,000,000 requests 🤯

That's it for January!

We will be sharing an update like this one each month.

Stay tuned!
