Using Unbroken Chain is as simple as adding your goals and placing a big red check on each day that you were able to accomplish it.
The Seinfeld quote above served as inspiration for the Unbroken Chain app that I've just submitted to the app store. Jerry is absolutely right that, once you start seeing the links in those chains grow, you want to make sure they continue to grow. This app simply helps you visualize your progress on your goals.
Do you have a New Year's Resolution to start exercising? Great! Create a new goal.
Only want to track three times a week? When creating your goal, just leave Monday, Wednesday and Friday checked and uncheck the rest of the days.
You can also use it to track things that don't want to do:
Use Unbroken Chain to track your progress when trying to quit smoking, drinking soft drinks, or anything else you'd like to quit doing.
Privacy information: All your goals are stored on your iOS device. They are never uploaded to the web.
✓ Habit Streak Plan helps you achieve your goals (or New Year's Resolutions) in exercise, diet or other areas of your life. Each day you report on whether you succeeded yesterday, building up streaks of habits and ingraining the activities into your life. It is perfect for the start of the new year.
"After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain" (Jerry Seinfeld)
Habit Streak has two key advances on Jerry Seinfeld's original technique. Firstly it allows you to build several chains up at once. Secondly it (optionally) prompts you every day to report on your success (whereas one could easily forget to update or look at a physical calendar).
✓ Habit Streak is simple, clear, easy to use and free; there are no time limits (though there is a Pro version with additional features and functionality).
"Fantastic. Easy to use, and I'm finding it effective for taking on multiple new habits."
"This simple app has altered the course of my life. Thank you!"
"Love this application. It has helped me create many new habits. The sister application Task Life is great as well."
✓ If you want To Do list-like functionality see my other app "ToDo Log" which allows for real time recording, repeated and one-off events along with graphs of your past performance. For less than daily tasks check out "Task:Life", for a different approach, based around the idea of what proportion of days you do something.
Access the help page via the ? button and tap the top right day counter to get a tip for each day to introduce you to Habit Streak.
This technique worked out fine for Jerry Seinfeld and it will for you too. The philosophy is simple: Small steps every day brings you closer to your goals. MyChain motivates you to stay on track and to not give in to casual weaknesses. But if you do have a reason, MyChain's "good excuse" feature comes to your rescue.
MyChain features multiple chains, home screen widgets, a calendar view and variable frequencies as well as a unique rewarding system to motivate you even more.
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Habit Calendar helps you achieve your goals by tracking your task.
Habit Calendar is simple and easy to use.
The App will display a notification in the Status Bar so long as you have any habits due to be done Today. When you are reminded by the notification icon, simply tap it, and you will see a dashboard that shows what remains to be done today. Once you've done all that is due today, the notification will not be shown until the next day, and so on. Note that you can check things off retroactively if you forget to do it on the same day.
You can dismiss the notification by swiping it away from the list, and it will come back automatically next day, or the next time you enter more info about habits.
No need to mess with widgets, complicated to-do lists, calendars and alarms. Focus on the now, on today, do what you need to do and just watch out for the handy notification.
The App uses Jerry Seinfeld's "don't break the chain" idea: you can see a streak (or a chain) number of repeats for each habit. Each habit's streak is a nice motivator to keep it going, but things happen and you might break a streak. No worries, don't beat yourself up, start again and keep at it.
Eventually, some habits become so ingrained in your routine that you can remove it from this app and just do them without having to track them. That's in fact the ultimate goal of this app, and we hope it will be useful on your way there.

Thank you and Good luck!
Goal Tracker - Habit Calendar will help you by keeping track of your progress.
It is inspired by Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret:
”…get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step is to get a big magic marker.
...for each day that you do your task, put a big mark over that day. After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.
...Don’t break the chain.”

sow an act and you reap a habit;
sow a habit and you reap a character;
sow a character and you reap a destiny."

Habitude is a habit tracking application you can use to help you build good habits and eliminate bad ones. Progress monitoring is a reliable method for developing positive habits. Viewing a record of past successes can boost your willpower when you feel weak, and help you gear up for future challenges. Introduced by Benjamin Franklin and refined by Jerry Seinfeld, this technique has been gaining popularity as a personal productivity tool (Lifehacker). Developing an every-day habit harnesses the power of positive inertia and removes the ability to self-negotiate your way to failure ("If I skip today I will do X twice tomorrow").
Andy Warhol said "If you do something once it’s exciting, and if you do it every day it’s exciting. But if you do it, say, twice or just almost every day, it’s not good any more.” Use Habitude to start building positive habits today.
