The HabitRPG iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad app keeps you organized and focused on your tasks, but it feels like a game. You earn points and health for accomplished tasks, and you must pay the penalties for indulgences. It uses graphics like Minecraft and Zelda. The concept is cool and intriguing despite the lags in the app’s performance. This free download from the iTunes App Store may be synced with an online account, so you can track Habit RPG and play Steam games at the same time.
You establish an account with a user name, email, and password. A Facebook log-in will be introduced in an update. You can also use your UUID and API token. The directions to find that information are clear, if you decide to take that route.
The HabitRPG iPhone app interface is spare, but intuitively designed. A touch on the icon in the upper left corner opens a menu that slides on the screen. You can move between different categories. The screen changes between categories, and a list of relevant items fills the main portion of the screen. You also access your profile, settings, and monitor health in the sliding left menu.
Four categories create your action plan – habits, dailies, to-dos, and rewards. These categories are thoughtful and thorough. You can establish routines and reward yourself for recurring tasks. You can also quickly add a punch list to your day with the to-do interface. Daily, unexpected, and long-term goals are easily addressed with the HabitRPG iPhone app. You can also penalize yourself for your bad habits.
You can customize each task or habit with simple interface. You decide if a task is positive or negative. You assess difficulty from easy, medium, and difficult. For daily tasks, you can tap which days the task needs to recur. For rewards, you can grant yourself an episode of your favorite TV show or allot yourself an hour of gaming. The default rewards are awesome, as they include potions, shields, cake, and a Game of Thrones episode.
The performance issue of the HabitRPG iPhone app relates to the speed and accuracy of the interface. It is slow to move between new screens and gestures. I pause between gestures, and the performance improves. The speed and agility are issues that can be addressed in an update.
The target audience of the HabitRPG iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad app are paying hefty download fees for Steam and PS4, so the free price tag is exciting. The HabitRPG iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad app is a great twist on iOS productivity apps, and it is definitely worth a try for gamers.
