The power of self-reflection

Neon partnered with founder Sean Burke to create CheckingIn – a simple and intuitive product that helps people increase self-awareness, elevate their mood, and connect more deeply with those they care about.

The obstacle is the answer

Call it introspection or personal reflection. Either way, we know it's a healthy practice. But journaling takes discipline. Many of us aren't accustomed to exploring our emotions, or pausing to examine how we feel in a given moment. Sean suspected that the same digital tools we turn to for distraction could also be harnessed for mindfulness – and Neon agreed.

Value in simplicity

Sean had a prototype, but he envisioned a full mobile product. Together, we built CheckingIn to help people of all ages enhance their mental health. Every day, users choose one word to express their dominant emotion and a number from 1-10 to quantify their current energy level. It's private, secure, and fast. Animations and subtle design transitions enhance the experience without adding clutter, while visualization tools enable users to track personal trends and patterns for lasting self-awareness.

A foundation for growth

CheckingIn consistently receives glowing reviews, with an average App Store rating of 4.9 out of 5. The product provides a simple and meaningful starting point for personal introspection. Neon not only built this sophisticated product, but our team gave Sean a clear strategy to guide the next phases of his business.

"Working with Neon was a positive experience from start to finish. The team helped to guide and challenge our thought process with a user-centric approach, and their attention to detail ensured the quality product we needed for an early-stage launch."
