A better you for a better world [App Review: Habitify]
As someone who makes to-do lists of super simple tasks just to satisfy my tick-kick, rewards myself with gold and has a (possibly unhealthy) obsession with trolling the app store, I like to think of myself as a pseudo-expert when it comes to task management applications.
So naturally, any application full of todo lists and gold stars is enough to make me weak at the knees. This month I tried Habitify, a beautifully designed application for tracking and keeping personal goals. I've tried many habit apps before, but Habitify is my new favourite.
"Better you, better world"
Dat Chu, Co-founder of Habitify
Last month we looked at ways to set and stick to your goals. We talked about ways to be accountable, such as telling your friends about your plans or committing to a charitable cause.
And that's what makes Habitify so great. The app gives you an incentive to keep your streak, by helping people in need of clean water: The more streaks you get, the more points you earn. Habitify converts your points into cash and donates to people in need of clean water.
"Habitify converts your points into cash and donates to people in need of clean water."
So, the best features in a nutshell:
- Earn badges and points for sticking to your goals
- Get motivational quotes on your lock screen, because who doesn't love a good pick me up?
- Use your points for good!
Currently the App is available for Mac and iOS devices. However Chu says android and web versions are in the works. Find out more at https://habitify.co/
