TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Only four months after the launch of its latest app, To-Do Adventure, Fourdesire posts another smashing performance and announces that its app download volumes have collectively achieved a record high, surpassing the 30 million mark.
2020 was a remarkable year for many people around the globe. The Covid-19 pandemic and its subsequent social distancing measures caused life-changing disruption, forcing people to move all their activities indoors. While many countries are further tightening their lockdown measures in an attempt to slow down the spread of the virus, people are likely to continue their home-based life for a prolonged period.
To adjust to this “new normal”, consumers are increasingly using virtual solutions for schooling, entertainment and work. Fourdesire’s mobile apps are considered great tools for those purposes, which attributed to its huge success. Combined installations of its four apps have now exceeded 30 million, setting a new milestone in the history of the popular Taiwanese app maker.
“Play for Better” is at the heart of everything the multiple-award-winning developer does. In today’s society, many people focus heavily on responsibilities such as work and family. Play is considered juvenile and a guilty pleasure for adults. However, play is crucial for people of all ages, providing an important source of stimulation and relaxation and should be incorporated into the everyday lives of adults. As with children, adults often learn better when playing.
Fourdesire’s success is founded on this realization. Its apps are aimed at helping people lead a better and healthier life through play.

Wei-Fan Chen, CEO and founder of Fourdesire, explained, “People love to play. A playful design can significantly enhance the user experience and encourage people to cultivate better habits in a fun way.”
Fourdesire launched its first app, Plant Nanny, in 2013 to motivate users to develop better wellness habits when it comes to drinking their daily intake of water. Plant Nanny 2, an upgraded version released in 2019, was named Best App by Google Play that same year in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Italy and Spain. Fourdesire’s second app, Walkr – Galaxy Adventure in Your Pocket, received the Best Game Award from the Apple App Store. This app focuses on making physical activities such as walking more enjoyable for users. In 2017, the app builder released Fortune City, a personal expense tracking app and another phenomenal success, being named the Best App in Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Google Play Store, and the winner of the Red Dot Design Award in 2018. The company’s latest product is To-Do Adventure, launched in September 2020—a task management app that transforms boring to-do lists into exciting adventures, helping users to improve their productivity and time management skills.
The firm’s self care apps have been a constant delight to the millions of fans it has gathered since its formation in 2012. Among the rave reviews shared were:
“As I started a new health journey, I knew I needed to make hydration a priority as I’ve always struggled with it in the past. And I am a plant lover, so Plant Nanny was instantly my favorite water intake tracker. Adorable and functional: win-win!”
“I started using Walkr six years ago and haven’t missed a day since. Not only does this cute and great little app help me stay active and healthy but I have also made many wonderful friends through the app.”
“When I first started personal tutoring, I had very little confidence and hope that I would earn much. But as the weeks passed, I began to look forward to searching my tutoring-related transactions in my Fortune City app. And by now, I have over $10,000 saved! If it was not for Fortune City, I wouldn’t have realized the impact that small bits of weekly income have on my finances.”
Commenting on Fourdesire’s success, Chen said, “We are thrilled with this extraordinary achievement. We have received positive feedback from users all over the world, who told us that our apps truly help them solve some practical issues. They are a great encouragement to us and we are grateful for their support.”
