From the Center for Behavioral Economics at Duke University comes a fun and innovative app that aims to help YOU make better financial decisions!
VICER lets you visualize the consequences of the LITTLE things you buy, your “Vices”: morning cups of coffee, cookies, packs of cigarettes, and more. Learn how much you can save by merely cutting back on two coffees a week! Learn how much cutting back on your vices can be put toward your retirement!
VICER pays for ITSELF.
Nobody is perfect. When it comes to making spending decisions, we’d like to think we have it all planned out! But it’s the LITTLE purchases, the coffees, the cookies, the cigarettes—that add up to BIG problems down the road. What we have created for you, finally, is a painless, easy way to visualize the consequences of your everyday financial decisions.
Vicer is designed by eminent psychologist and behavioral economist Dr. Dan Ariely, who has spent years analyzing financial decision making and whose book, Predictably Irrational was on the New York Times Bestseller List. We’ve learned through years of research that paid programs are more effective than free ones.
We’ll always take the best of what we learn and give you the tools to make better decisions.
Vicer: start saving today.
Have iPhone 4S running iOS 7.0.4. As with other reviewers, I can’t add vices, so the program doesn’t work. I like the app idea so I will try again when the developers figure out what’s wrong, but for now I can’t recommend it.
My iphone is a 3G, the iOs is 4.2.1. This app does not work for me; I can't add any vices.
Screenshots looked promising - its a good idea... Glad it was free since it didn't work.
Blank screen where examples of vices should be and no ability to add new ones.
I like the idea, but you can't do anything with this app. I'm trying to get a refund.
Sounds like an interesting concept, but can't edit or add anything. Unacceptable given the price
