✓ Join thousands of users to achieve your goals with Habit Streak Pro (the premium version of Habit Streak).
✓ Habit Streak helps you achieve your goals (or New Year's Resolutions) in exercise, diet or other areas of your life. Each day you report on whether you succeeded yesterday, building up streaks of habits and ingraining the activities into your life.
"After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain" (Jerry Seinfeld)
Habit Streak has two key advances on Jerry Seinfeld's original technique. Firstly it allows you to build several chains up at once. Secondly it (optionally) prompts you every day to report on your success (whereas one could easily forget to update or look at a physical calendar).
✓ New in Pro version.
The Pro version has rebuilt several elements of the application from the ground up to enable new features.
It includes import (from either Habit Streak or Habit Streak Pro).
The correction mode is now much more powerful, giving you a fine level of control over habits (particularly useful if you are moving from another habit tracking system and want to import your progress so far).
The habit view features a new past streak graph (once you enough past streaks for this to be useful, if you have a small number of recorded streaks then the graph does not appear).
There are two widgets. One shows you if you are up to date (and if so your streak count and total), if not it prompts you to update (telling you when you last updated for). The other shows your best and worst streaks. Tap on either to open the App.
Add to calendar: now (on supported devices) you can add reminders to your calendar both for individual habits and reminders to update Habit Streak. To add individual reminders hold down on a habit.
NB Nothing is added to your calendar unless you specifically request it. You must have a default calendar set up on your device for this to work (you need an Android 4.0 or newer device).
✓ Cloud Backup
Automatic backup to Dropbox: you can link the App to Dropbox and it will automatically backup your data in a standard format (it is not on my server or restricted to this App).
✓ New 2015 Android Lollipop and Android 4.0+ Design
Habit Streak Pro was recently redesigned for Android Lollipop using a 'Material' Theme.
I also updated the design for Android 4.0-4.4 (the vast majority of Android devices). On Android 4.0+ you can now access common actions with a swipe to the left and see a quick overview screen or guide with a swipe to the right. There are also many visual and functional updates.
On older devices you can still use Habit Streak Pro; however, a small number of features will not be available (and it may not look quite as pretty).
✓ Reviews from Habit Streak:
"Fantastic. Easy to use, and I'm finding it effective for taking on multiple new habits."
"This simple app has altered the course of my life. Thank you!"
"Love this application. It has helped me create many new habits. The sister application Task Life is great as well."
✓ If you want To Do list-like functionality see my other app "To Do Log" which allows for real time recording, repeated and one-off events along with graphs of your past performance. For less than daily tasks check out "Task:Life", for a different approach, based around the idea of what proportion of days you do something.
