HabitHub is based on Seinfield's productivity method - Don't break the chain.
The design of the app makes it really easy to get an overview of all your tracked habits and your progress with each of those habits for the current week. Tap into any habit to see your performance for the entire month.
HabitHub's reminders work really great, taking advantage of Android built-in action buttons to a notification. Thanks to that, you can simply swipe down on your notifications shade and mark a habit as done, skip, or fail in one tap.
Perhaps the best part about the app is the ability to add home screen widgets, which let you review your current habits performance at a glance.
stickK is unique - instead of setting and tracking goals in an isolated way, the app has created a system of binding agreements.
As a stickK user, you sign a Commitment Contract stating that you will follow through on your newly set goals and targets by putting money on the line.
There's a psychology of loss aversion in place to not lose the money you put in, but more importantly this can build accountability to yourself that you've physically committed to your new goal, and there's actual stakes to it beyond a purely mental stake.
stickK users have put $51 million dollars on the line and collectively created 533,000 commitments. The website also says its users managed to avoid smoking 42 million cigarettes. There's power in those numbers, so perhaps it's worth giving it a try.
