Aug 1 Team Update

Hi all,
This is where we are this week.

July goal:
Our goal was to release Opal iOS16 to Testflight with onboarding, setup, settings, a new feature called MileStones. Finish brand assets, website, launch organic growth and SEO processes.

Aug 1 Status

  • Opal iOS16 is TestFlight but c. 50% functional, without focus score, onboarding and MileStones. We are hitting a few roadblocks due iOS 16 Beta bugs (we filed a total of 19 Radars - Apple’s version of a bug report), and may need to work around them by changing features.
  • Brand assets are finalized (we released a preview), but the website is not done yet (delayed).
  • SEO process has been kicked off both from us writing our own content Opal | Blog and kicking off work with an agency this week (on Slack: #SEO )
  • Organic content: we have 2 winners, first-person Tips Instagram Reels (like the urge surfing one) and joint posting with relevant partners (like with log off movement). We still need to figure out how to produce this content at scale 3-4X weekly.

Aug Goal
In August, we are working to get Opal iOS16 from 50 to 90%, which means solving a lot of iOS16 bugs together with Apple, releasing MileStones, expanding our testflight to 200 people, build our new Focus Score and Screen Time stats features (we call it Focus Report and Daily Focus). We will also release this community board, improve our Instagram organic process to post 3-4x winners per week, grow our SEO process, secure 2 partnerships with leading Screen Time organizations, and get everything polished for public launch (iOS16 is set to launch mid-Sept).

We’re more excited than ever to help 1Bn people focus day to day (and accomplish their dreams).
