Where can I download the We Croak app?

Find happiness by contemplating your mortality with the WeCroak app. Each day, the app sends you five invitations at randomized times to stop and think about death. It's based on a Bhutanese folk saying that to be a happy person one must contemplate death five times daily.

The WeCroak invitations come at random times and at any moment just like death. When they come, you can open the app for a quote about death from a poet, philosopher, or notable thinker.
