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 3.0.5
* Speed Improvements: Habit List now does calculations in the background so your first launch of the day is faster
* Localized the date format for graphs. Habit List will now follow your phone’s international settings.
* Fixed some streak and stat calculation issues. If you saw a crazy streak like -6940, this fixes that.
If you’re enjoying Habit List and have a minute, please leave a nice review in the app store. It really helps and is much appreciated.
Buggy and poor UI
I really wanted to like this app. It's beautifully minimalistic but almost to a fault. When your " once/twice/etc. a week" habits are checked off they disappear from your list completely. I couldn't set my own time tables so I found myself, if I went to bed after midnight, having to check nightly habits off for the next day. There was also no way to say you had done something more than once in a day, say take a walk, and that was pretty hard to get around. The final nail in the coffin was the fact that I would sometimes accidentally check something wrong off and then wouldn't be able to scroll down to change it (this being a bug).
Simple, elegant, effective
This app does exactly what I needed - allows me create a simple, daily checklist to make sure I'm keeping up with all of the habits I want to implement. The options to set habits for particular days of the week, a certain number of times per week, or every certain number of days make this app exactly as customizable as I need it to be while still maintaining a sleek, elegant interface. I highly recommend it!
Really glad I purchased this. I'm hoping it'll help keep me on track with things I need to do, and with habits I need to break.
One criticism I have is that I wish the "complete once per month" items wouldn't completely disappear from the list when they're ticked off. What if I accidentally hit the button? There seems to be no way to get them back asides from recreating the event, even if I reset their stats.
