Deliver Your News to the World Launches Goal Setting and Task Tracking Application for Teens


With, teens set goals, organize their busy lives, shop, and interact with friends all in one unique application.

New York, NY - February 26, 2009 – A new application allowing teens to set and track goals was launched today by, an extraordinarily innovative website based in New York.

“It’s a first of its kind goal tracking solution for teens” said, Ryan Garelick, Co-founder of Scallyroo, “because it helps young people not only visualize their goal and manage corresponding tasks, but it also incorporates a wish list feature which attaches a reward to the achievement of the goal.”

The application is integrated with an Ajax based daily calendar and incorporates a sharing feature allowing users to let parents and friends know about their goals. According to Garelick, “Setting a goal is one thing, but actually achieving a goal is something different. By providing users with a tool that lets them share the goal with their parents or a friend, we are adding an element of accountability which is so critical to following through and completing a goal.” Another element of the site allows members in the users “Friend” network to offer support and motivation through comments posted on the users profile page, creating a shared experience of success. “Socializing the goal adds an element of motivation for the goal setter and inspiration for the goal watcher,” remarks Garelick. Their rapidly expanding membership base seems to be agreeing with him.

“The Scallyroo application is an incredible tool that my children love. We plan out what goals they want to achieve and attach the reward they will receive upon completing the goal. The kids logon every day to make sure they are performing the tasks necessary to complete their goal,” said Amy Whitmore, Scallyroo user from New York, NY. “And seeing the reward on their goal manager home page adds to the motivation they need to keep working hard.”
