EpicWin is an iPhone app that puts the adventure back into your life. It’s a streamlined to-do list, to quickly note down all your everyday tasks, but with a role-playing spin. So rather than just ticking off your chores and reminders, completing each one earns you XP to improve and develop your character in an ongoing quest to improve stats, gain riches, and level-up.
To-do list with a Role-Playing Game spin
Streamlined and fast to use
Range of avatars to level-up with
Destroy your chores in animated battles
Points and rewards for completing your tasks
Loot to discover and share
By getting points for your chores it's easier to actually get things done. We all have good intentions but we need a bit of encouragement here and there. Doing the laundry is an epic feat of stamina so why not get stamina points for it?!
The to-do list is fully-featured and supports repeating tasks, displays reminders for overdue events and allows time-critical events to be assigned to specific days, while more aspirational quests can be set to "someday" so you don't lose sight of your goals. And each task completed is destroyed by your avatar, so get your Undead Warrior to beat-up your laundry, or your Treeman to headbutt your overspilling inbox.
The app is supplied with 3 animated avatars (with a further 2 to buy as In-App-Purchases) which grow in characteristics that represent your own life. Will you be a Maiden of Juggled Priorities, or a King of Win? The lifestyle you lead will decide.
What's New in Version 1.68
Now has real world rewards with integration with Kiip! So sometimes when you complete a task / get loot the magical Kiip algorithm may decide to pop you a real world reward like MONEY OFF some kind of bread, or a free ride at your nearest Dinosaur Park.
My ADHD coach suggested I try out this app, and I have to say that I love it so far. It's definitely helping me better remember to write down the tasks I need to do and then actually do them, like doing the dishes or taking my medication every morning. One feature I really love about this is that YOU get to decide how many points something is worth. As someone who suffers from Depression and some anxiety as well as ADHD, I find that a lot of things that come easily to others (like remembering to do the dishes every night or even doing something as basic as sweeping the floor) are often a lot harder for me to remember to do or to summon up the energy and motivation to do it. Being able to set the "epicness" of each task myself allows for me to account for my mental state day by day. For example, on a good day, doing the dishes may only rate as "50" epicness, but on a bad day, it may be bumped up to 150 or maybe even 300 if it's a REALLY bad day. I appreciate that the values for certain things aren't set. Being able to adjust the "difficulty" level is perhaps the best feature in my opinion.
The only thing I would like to see is more "game" elements involved. Your character travels along a path, collecting gold, but so far I haven't figured out what the gold is for. Maybe being able to buy weapons and armor and fight little monsters along the way or something would be cool.
Must have for ADD
I have real motivational problems when it comes to doing chores and with my ADD, if things aren't exciting, it's really hard for me to do it. This app is the to-do list I've been looking for my whole life.
It's really easy to understand and use. You can easily edit and re-order the list, which I find helpful since my schedule can change so quickly. I love the flexibility of giving chores various points that level up your character. It had really helped me to do tasks that I've been putting off for weeks. I really feel a sense of accomplishment when I get menial tasks done now, and my productivity has gone up significantly since using this app.
I'm not sure why there are poor ratings. Maybe the app changed at some point. But I love it and have no complaints. I'd highly recommend this app to people who are looking for a way to get motivated to do work.
Lost all calendar entries
The app has been great. A fun To Do list. However, after using it for years, I decided to create a gmail account and sync it with Epic Win, alone with my iPhone calendar. I could never get the Epic Win entries to show on the calendars so I decided to unlink it. Big mistake. Not only did it wipe out all my to do entries, it also deleted every entry in all my calendars!!! Since there appears to be no support, I'm screwed. How could an app this dangerous be allowed in IOS? Also, there doesn't appear to be a way to delete the gmail account and the app keeps trying to sync.
