I’m the kind of guy that likes to track things. We have many systems at GreenMellen for tracking work and progress, I wear a FitBit to track my steps, I have a GPS watch to track my runs, etc. However, there are a lot of other habits that I could track, so I started looking into those options.
Lifehacker recently had an article that showcased the best habit tracking apps for iPhone and that inspired me to dig in. While I don’t currently use an iPhone, some of the apps they showed were cross-platform, and others out there are Android-only. I typically always look for cross-platform apps (so I’m free to use whatever phone I want), so that’s where I dug in.
I started with Habitica, which used to be known as HabitRPG. They make your habits feel like a video game, with accomplishments and power-ups and things like that to keep you inspired. It’s a neat idea, but comes across feeling a little cheesy. Here’s a screenshot from their site:
The interface is easy to use, and it does the job nicely.
Do you track your daily habits? If so, what do you use?
