- Joan Boixadós made this productI initially developed everydayCheck for myself because I thought all the other apps were too cluttered with features I didn't need. Then I shared it with some friends and they loved it, so I decided to productize it. It's a minimalistic habit tracker that resembles a paper habit tracker as much as possible while taking advantage of the new techs, of course. Let me know what you think! :)
A year ago, I was using a permanent marker to color in squares on my calendar. Good days were blacked out and bad days got an 'x'. Building habits is as simple as two weeks in a row. I feel like EverydayCheck has taken that simple habit tracker to the next level—with tracking multiple habits, super cool visualization, and access to tracking across devices, everywhere I go.
Keeps me really focused on my habits.
- Gamification isn't for everyone. It is for me. Getting XP to level up my character and gold to buy quests, getting random item drops upon performing the task that I'm trying to habitify, all this works for me, really well. More things I love: joining a party of friends to complete quests without have to share my task+habit list, and free and open source with optional paid subscription and IAP (so happy to support this group of dedicated and talented individuals). It's far from perfect, but it's better than any other app I've so far tried—not technically, perhaps, but because I care enough to stick with it (in the same way that the best camera is the one you actually carry and use).
I've been using Habitica (previously Habit RPG) for years now. If you haven't tried it, you should. It's a fun and easy way to turn your life into a game and feel like you're winning at it. :D
Pro tip (from personal experience): If you find yourself with a lengthy task list that you never finish and just feel guilty about, scrap it and start over with smaller, actionable items. Life should be fun!
