With a unique approach to tracking habits that is heavily inspired by RPG games, Habitica's creators have definitely flexed their creativity while building this habit tracker app.
With Habitica, the actions and tasks you perform help you gain experience points and level up, just like in a game. You can use the app with friends to complete quests or missions.
Habitica is the app embodiment of turning your life into a video game. And honestly, that might turn out to be just what you need to have fun and stay motivated while you level yourself up, IRL.
Loop is one of the most popular free habit tracking apps, with its Android app clocking millions of downloads.
Loop is different from other apps in that it is open source. Its Github repository is available for anyone to fork and modify to their satisfaction, thereby allowing people with technical chops to make the app their own.
But Loop works great out of the box. It's got an extremely simple habit tracking interface where you can view all your habits at a glance, see how you performed in the last few days, and easily mark a habit as done, missed or skipped using taps and long-press actions.
The app also has cool analytics that lets you visualize your progress over time. What's especially great is the calendar view, which shows you at a glance which days of the month you performed or missed your habit.
All the data in the app can be easily exported as a CSV or a SQLite database file. You own your data completely.
