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.

Coach.me is a holistic habit and goals tracking app that doesn't stop just there. The free app is packed with features, but the starter templates deserve a special mention.

Momentum is a beautiful and simple habit tracker app built exclusively for Apple devices.

With an extremely simple and minimal UI, you can you glance all your habits in a second. Thanks to deep iOS and Watch OS embeds, you can check off a habit with one tap from the home screen or notifications shade.
