Frequently asked questions
What is Graceful?
Graceful is a tool to centralize and nurture your most important relationships. Finally, you can be more intentional by organizing your contacts and planning who, what & when you want to celebrate. Everything you enter in the app is seen by you only. It is the backstage of your social life!
Who should use Graceful?
We think everyone who wants to nurture their personal relationships could use Graceful. If you are keen on organization and already have many of your loved ones’ information in social media apps, calendars, notes, Graceful is an opportunity to centralize everything in one place. If you aren't already organized and want to improve your life with some productivity tool, you can start now by entering your most important contacts in Graceful and start planning how you want to celebrate those precious people.
Is Graceful a religious app?
Not at all. Everyone is welcome to use Graceful to celebrate relationships.
Is Graceful available on Android?
Currently Graceful is only available for the iPhone. In the future, we plan to develop a version for Android, but at this time we do not have a precise timeline.
Where is the data that I add to Graceful?
All the data is physically stored in your phone, and nowhere else. Contrary to the majority of apps, Graceful does not rely on a cloud database. Your phone has ample storage space for the text information you enter in Graceful. And it is safely and automatically backed-up with all other data in your phone.
How to delete all Graceful data?
When you remove the Graceful app from your phone (long tap on the icon + “Remove App”), all the data you entered in the app is permanently deleted. It’s that simple. Oh, and it can not be undone. Except by restoring an old backup of your phone (see: "What happens if I loose, break or change phone?").

Why is there no account & login in Graceful?
An account & login are required when the data used by an app is stored and computed outside of the phone it runs on. As in the case for the majority of apps. Graceful does not copy and store any personal or critical data outside your phone. It works perfectly without an internet connection. Therefore an account & login are not needed. The sophisticated protection, security & back-up features included in your phone are protecting your Graceful data, similarly to all of the data stored in your phone.
Is Graceful free?
If it’s free, am I the product?
What does “collecting anonymized data” means?
Also we do not use unique advertising identifiers technologies (such as IDFA) that power targeted ads outside the app.
Are you looking for funding?
Yes. If you are interested in our investor deck, email us at email@example.com.

What is a celebration in Graceful?
A celebration is what you want it to be. We chose a fun, positive and big word because we think anything in life that matters to you deserves a celebration. It can be just a thoughtful text, a little hello but it can also be an important life milestone, a wedding, a bad ass decision, a trip, or maybe you just want to say thank you and send a gift card, or maybe you just want to ask how someone is doing.Creating “celebrations” in the app allows you to plan in advance what needs to be celebrated, that day, that week, that month. Once it’s in the app, you will receive reminders and you will be able to view all celebrations for a certain group. Your mind is lighter and people are finally celebrated!
Can I import my contacts?
Yes you can select and import any contact from your phone’s Contacts.
What are the values of the Graceful team?
