Get hooked into forming the habits you want. More than a standard goal setting app, Better Habits is built from the ground up based on the latest research in behavioral psychology and habit formation. It uses your own efforts to leverage further motivation.
- Intelligent progress
- Difficulty settings
- Streaks, attempts, scope
- Custom scheduling
Better Habits is not a goal-setting, stat-tracking, or coach-networking app. It’s a tool that is laser-targeted on forming habits that last. 45% of all daily behavior is habit. Changing those habits can be incredibly difficult and many of us, unfortunately never succeed at doing so. It IS possible to change your core habits and many Better Habits users already have. We tap into your natural pain/pleasure triggers. You are rewarded for performance with visual anchored progress. When you fail to perform, you lose portions of that progress. Rather than a static, black and white, ‘all or nothing’ answer, we offer a sophisticated living algorithm that is backed by science and flexible to fit everyone. The app is deceptively simple, and users are stunned at why — and how well — it works. Behind its elegant surface and easy interaction, is a union of serious study and complex technology that gently guides you along the path to success.
Better your habits, better your life.
What's New in Version 1.2.1
Hotfix for the following bugs :
• Fixed nasty bug that was causing a number of crashes if you exited the tutorial screen before it was finished
• Fixed bug where ‘test’ buttons were showing up where they shouldn’t be
Thanks so much for the feedback, keep it coming!
Great (forgiving) Habit Builder!
I really like how easy this app is to set up and operate. My favorite thing is that you get reminders (not "nags") to build your habits, you can set days of the week (yoga on Mon, Wed, Thur, Sun, for example), and if you miss a day you don't feel like you've failed-you just keep going.
Great Habit Tracker
The most useful app of its type I've come across so far. Simple in both appearance and function, yet it keeps track of progress in a more detailed way than the other apps I've tried. Makes it encouraging and manageable to achieve a habit.
I'm someone who needs to be held accountable and the nag feature is perfect for me. I am very happy with how the app functions..
