Create good habits. Break unhealthy ones. Build a better you. Habit List includes everything you need to reach your goals, wrapped in a beautiful and intuitive interface. It motivates you, helps you stay focused, and keeps you on track. It’s for all the little things that make a big difference.
Get motivated with streaks — Keeping streaks alive is a powerful motivator. See how high you can go, then try to beat your personal best. Red badges mean you've slacked and need to get back on track. Gray badges are optional, missing them won’t break your streak. Green means go, complete it today!
Focus on what’s due — No need to wade through all your habits to figure out what to do, Habit List only shows what’s due today. And you can set the default order for your habits, so items that you’ll complete first are at the top of your list. Tap today and you’ll see your completion percentage for the day.
Stay on track with reminders and badges — Habits are powerful because they’re automatic, but while you’re building routines, reminders are indispensable. App badges show the number of remaining habits for the day, great for reminding you to complete your list. You can even set a daily review reminder to get in the habit of using the app.
View trends over time — Step back and see the big picture with weekly and monthly completion percentages. Bar colors range from green to red and give a visual indicator of how you’re doing.
Flexible scheduling — Choose from 3 kinds of schedules: Specific Days, Non-specific Days, or Intervals. So you can schedule your workouts M-W-F, bring lunch to work any 4 days per week, or write a blog post every 2-3 days. No matter what the habit, you're covered.
Track your progress — See your history at a glance and gain insight into what's working—or isn't. Always miss your Friday workout? Maybe a different day or early morning routine would work better. Habit List also tracks your personal best (longest streak) and total completions.
No detail too small — Going on vacation? Skip habits without breaking your streak. Miss a habit early in the day? Mark it as missed to keep your list uncluttered. You can also customize Habit List with a different font, change the week start date, export your data (JSON format), and keep things private with a passcode. Speaking of privacy, we don’t require you to set up an account, don’t track your habits, and your data is 100% private.
What's New in Version 3.2.4
This update contains small bug fixes and improvements (one of the fixes is for completed habits that would sometimes get cut off at the end of long lists).
We know we've been quiet lately, but rest assured we are working on new features you'll love. Btw, our reviews get reset with each new release. If you love Habit List, would you please take a minute to rate or review it? It really helps!
too late. Finally switched over to Momentum a month ago and it works perfectly and syncs with iCloud so you can easily transfer your data over to a new phone, if necessary, and the UI is nicer too. Habit List currently has no such backup & restore functionality so if you switch phones, you lose all your data unless fully restoring from a backup (who does this?). Also, Habit List hasn’t been updated in over 13 months and any questions to the developers are 100% ignored. Vote with your money and give it to anyone else except these two.
Also: the annoying list bug that version 3.2.4 fixes has existed for over 13 months! Even for a side project, it should never take this long to implement such a minor fix and this is indicative of how little attention this app gets.
This is one app I go to every single day. It gives me motivation to find the discipline to continue the good habits I want and break the ones I don't. I'd love to see (and would gladly pay a premium for) features such as:
- vacation mode
- badges for long term streaks
- analysis (ie, not surprisingly, I've noticed that I break more streaks on Fridays than any other day)
Best habit tracker
I've tried all the habit tracking apps but this one is by far the best. I like that it does not require a sign-in and allows so much customization of the frequency of individual habits. My only suggestion would be to create a Watch app. Perhaps in the next version?
