Habitify keeps things simple with their straightforward habit tracker that operates on
The app's features are thoughtfully constructed, taking into account real-world usage of various habits. For example, you can create a habit for meditation and also track the time you meditate in each setting, which is the behaviour of a lot of people building a meditation habit.
Another useful feature is the ability to group habits. Sort of like folders, but for a set of habits that belong to a broader goal. The app also gives you the ability to add notes, which serve as a record of your thoughts as you progress through your habits journey.
Habitify also hands-down has one of the nicest looking landing pages.
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.
