Embark on an epic journey of self-improvement with Rare Candy as your guide. You’ll master real-life skills and habits while leveling up a virtual character and earning precious in-game rewards in a classic role-playing game (RPG) experience.
Inspired by the book Outliers, written by New York Times Bestselling author Malcom Gladwell, Rare Candy follows the premise that the mastery of any skill takes 10,000 hours of devoted practice time. When you complete those 10,000 hours of skill development within the app you are officially named a master.
With it's simple-to-use interface and captivating artwork, Rare Candy offers more than just activity tracking, it becomes an unforgettable journey that motivates you to stay on the path to success.
Learn new skills. Break bad habits. Form good habits. Become a master.

Fun and addictive
I am a gamer and I'm always looking for things to make my every day tasks fun. This app combines everything I love in an RPG with a task list for my every day life. It is very easy to use and fun for all ages.
Very good, could improve very easily.
Right now this app is really great for keeping track of your various practices and making it more fun to do them every day. As someone who likes rpgs but struggles with sticking to routines in real life, this app is a blessing. As a player, if you are expecting this to feel like a game in of itself, you will feel disappointed. If you are just looking for a bit of extra motivation to get better at certain real life skills, this is the app for you-- especially if you've got a good imagination.
I do have some important suggestions for the developers, the first of which would be very easy to implement:
1. At-A-Glance Skill Tracker: See which skills have been practiced (and for how many hours) in the last week. This way you don't have to look at every skill individually to figure this out.
2. I like that you can buy gems to change the color of the app, and I like the different characters you can choose from, but the boots and gloves don't seem to serve any purpose (practical or cosmetic). Give me a reason to want to buy them.
3. Random Encounters: Users could receive push notifications that there is a battle encounter waiting for them in the app. You would use the hp and mana from your dailies to fight your way through encounters. You use your mana to attack, and your hp to soak up damage dealt by monsters. Both refill to full every 24 hours as long as you have at least one "streak" maintained in each respective category (hp and mana). Every day you fight a slightly more challenging monster. Defeating it earns you more coins, but if your hp reaches 0 you lose some or all of your coins. Max HP and Mana could be increased through your overall character level, and maybe customized via reaching certain goal-points in your dailies (maintaining an hp streak for a month gives you +5 max hp for example)
Other people have requested cosmetic character customization. That would also be nice, but perhaps less important than the things I mentioned.
Any of those things would make MASSIVE improvement to the app.
