Excellent tool This is a terrific way to keep me honest about things I am already trying to get done. It only got 4 not 5 stars because its implementation of tasks to be done x times every y days (like exercise 4 days a week) seems not to work. Even so, this is one of my most used apps. Well Done!
Wonderful! Thank you! Started using it just a couple of days ago after testing several other habit building apps, and this one is my favourite - user-friendly and simple but with many useful features. ***** Suggestions: (1) setting start and end times for each chain; (2) audio reminders; (3) setting chains on certain days of the week / month; (4) replace manual sorting (move up/down) with dragging the chains up or down.
Suggestion for dev Great app. One suggestion: for the widgets it would be great if there was some indication that this is the last day to do the goal (for a goal that can be done less frequently than every day). Could be something subtle like more bold text or a border or slightly darker background. I have a mix of things that are done on different frequencies and I tend to not realize until the next day that I have gone back to zero.
Anti-time zones Only complaint is that crossing a time zone totally destroys the count. Went from TX to AK on business, now a chain that should say 84 says 192. Probably going to have to create new chains when I get back, and manually add recreate the last 3 months.
Excellent Nearly ideal implementation of the don't break the chain idea. Three things would make it better. 1. An additional color for "this is your last day before you broke the chain" 2. Widget can display your max chain length if you're not on the max. 3. Calendar overview display of all chains. Maybe in a future release. Also it would be nice if author had an optional paid version, as I'd like to chip a dollar or two toward this. :)
Exactly what I was looking for, plus widgets! I have been looking around for a good "don't break the chain" / habit forming program, and this has all I need. It is well designed and aesthetically pleasing. It feels both simple and clean, instead of annoyingly or distractingly glossy. It has a calendar view, not just a streak count. Most importantly, it has a conveniently small widget (the size of any app button) that you can click to show you completed the day's task and then adds to your streak count, shown on the widget. Thanks so much!
Redesigned widget so that it looks more like a widget and less like an icon
Made a confirmation dialog on chain delete
Also target 1.6 devices
Fixed moving up/moving down chains.
Looking better on Android 4 (Holo)
Updated UI so features are easier to find
Added possibility to delay change of day
Made a lot of under the hood-changes, so it is not impossible that some functionality is broken. Please give feedback and I will try to update soon again.
