App Launch Blends Video Game Style Action with Personal Debt Reduction
Phoenix, Arizona – Application development firm, Fun with Data LLC today is thrilled to announce the launch of My Mountain of Debt, an innovative iOS app that helps consumers view and reduce their personal financial debts. The goal of My Mountain of Debt is to make paying off debt visual and fun so users will be more likely to stick to their debt reduction efforts. The need for such a service is considerable, with 2012 data reporting average household credit card debt of $15,328, and an average student loan balance of $34,703.
My Mountain of Debt application is setup like a video game where users progress through the animated story as debt payments are made over time. Each payment results in an animated figure smashing bricks of “debt,” thus reducing the size of the mountain which represents the total debt value. An animated bar graph showcases users’ personal debt amounts and the app can track multiple debt categories to allow users to get a full picture of their situation. Intuitive and easy to use, the app offers a large keyboard for simple data entry.

“The idea for the My Mountain of Debt application came from my own experiences dealing with the weight of personal debt,” said Chris Brew, founder and CEO of Fun with Data, LLC. “People who are trying to pay down their debts need encouragement to keep going. Unfortunately, many consumers are so deep into debt that they take on a fatalistic view and just assume they can’t get out, even with regular payments. Our application helps them to stay positive by showing them their progress in a visual format.”

* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 21.5 MB
