Our Story

It was a happy day when a young man from the land of Vikings and polar bears got an idea. ?

He thought asking strangers about happiness would spread some joy, so he decided to interview people on the streets of Oslo. “Hey, what made you happy today?” ?

People loved the question and lit up with positive energy as their happy memories came to life. “I should think about what makes me happy more often!” said pretty much everyone. ?

Fueled by the happiness of friendly strangers, the young man set out on a journey to create the world’s happiest app. Now people everywhere can wake up to a happy memory and feel the power of positivity first thing in the morning. Because everyone should remind themselves of the good things in life. ?

The happy interviews continue on the streets of San Francisco and we’re thrilled to make the world a little happier every day. Download WakeUpHappy and take responsibility for your happiness. Celebrate the little things. Because you deserve to be happy. ❤️

Company and Social Responsibility

Happiness doesn’t require a big house or a fancy car. But without basic amenities such as clean water, food, security and shelter, life can be a struggle. Too many people don’t have what many of us take for granted, and it shouldn’t be like this. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works for a world in which every child has a fair chance in life and we want to help out.

That’s why for every Pro upgrade we donate between 10% and 40% to charity. Half of our charitable proceeds will support UNICEF—the other half will go to local charities around the world. You can follow our charity on Facebook and Instagram.

QnApp AS and WakeUpHappy was founded by Christian Danielsen because he wants to help people live to their fullest potential. The young company is based in the Kingdom of Norway, currently the happiest country in the world.

Yeah Right

Yeah WakeUpHappy I get it. If I download your app my life will immediately be filled with happiness, glitter and tap-dancing unicorns. Your beautiful sounds will have me leapfrog out of bed with the graceful elegance of a skydiving ballerina, so that I can kickstart every morning with smiles, laughter and joy. Sven ?

Dear Sven! As much as we appreciate your candid sarcasm and colorful imagination, we regret to inform you that waking up happy is your own responsibility. It’s actually all up to you. We’ve merely created an app to help you along. A little something to help you recognize and appreciate the good things in life. But you can do it, we believe in you. Be the unicorn, Sven. Be the unicorn. Team WakeUpHappy ?
