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.
Everyday is hands-down one of the most delightfully simple habit tracker apps out there. All the action happens on its simple visual interface, where you can see your habits stacked vertically on the left, and a timeline that progresses towards the right on top to the current day.
The core concept of the app is to perform habits daily, and to not break the chain or streak. If you perform a habit, you mark it as done. On the right, you see how long your current streak, as well as the previous high score of your streak and a total count of times you performed a habit in its lifetime.
The app is designed and built for every conceivable platform. You can use it on your Android device, iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, Mac or on the Web.
