[prMac.com] Westhampton, Massachusetts - Just in time for New Year's resolutions, Habit List gets a complete overhaul for iOS 7. This update includes beautiful typography and transitions, new features, and even more ways to track your progress. Habit List motivates you by building streaks, keeps you on track with reminders, and has an uncluttered interface to keep you focused on what's important. It's perfect for big goals, like running a marathon, or smaller ones, like drinking 8 glasses of water each day.
"We focus on willpower and getting motivated, when we should be building good habits" co-founder Scott Dunlap explains. "We all have plenty of motivation: we want to lose 10 pounds, save up for a new house, or floss every night. Most of us rely on willpower to reach our goals, but eventually it runs out. Research shows that you only have a limited supply of willpower and it gets depleted over the course of a day. To make real changes that last, habits are your best bet. We've built a simple and intuitive app that creates healthy habits to reach your goals."
Key features include:
Get motivated with streaks - Keeping streaks alive is a powerful motivator. See how high you can go, then try to beat your personal best. Red badges mean you've slacked and need to get back on track. Gray badges are optional, missing them won't break your streak. Green means go, complete it today!
Focus on what's due - No need to wade through all your habits to figure out what to do, Habit List only shows what's due today. And you can set the default order for your habits, so items that you'll complete first are at the top of your list. Tap today and you'll see your completion percentage for the day.
Stay on track with reminders and badges - Habits are powerful because they're automatic, but while you're building routines, reminders are indispensable. App badges show the number of remaining habits for the day, great for reminding you to complete your list. You can even set a daily review reminder to get in the habit of using the app.
View trends over time - Step back and see the big picture with weekly and monthly completion percentages. Bar colors range from green to red and give a visual indicator of how you're doing.
Flexible scheduling - Choose from 3 kinds of schedules: Specific Days, Non-specific Days, or Intervals. So you can schedule your workouts M-W-F, bring lunch to work any 4 days per week, or write a blog post every 2-3 days. No matter what the habit, you're covered.
Track your progress - See your history at a glance and gain insight into what's working (or isn't). Always miss your Friday workout? Maybe a different day or early morning routine would work better. Habit List also tracks your personal best (longest streak) and total completions.
No detail too small - Going on vacation? Skip habits without breaking your streak. Miss a habit early in the day? Mark it as missed to keep your list uncluttered. You can also customize Habit List with a different font, change the week start date, export your data (JSON format), and keep things private with a passcode. Speaking of privacy, we don't require you to set up an account, don't track your habits, and your data is 100% private.
