A to-do app for nerds

Time ago, there was a comicbook about a nerd who took his daily job in the office as if he was playing his favorite roleplaying game, it was much like Knights of the Dinner Table or Dork Tower, so to speak. Now, OCDevel thinks that there are many of us who think to ourselves in that nerd terms, or at least that it'd be useful to do so to achieve certain goals. It'd be like transactional coaching taken in a more fun way. In the end, we mere mortals can procrastinate, but our 18th lvl paladin wouldn't.

That is. It's a to-do app, presented in a lovely 8bit user interface that invites to add new "quests" (tasks) to earn experience points and get items, hence enhancing this app's recurrence.

We'd like to see more themes, as a sci-fish one, for example. Anyway, it's an original and very nerdy way to customize your Android and manage your life when you're snowed under it.

Developer's original description available here
HabitRPG is a habit-building program which treats your life like a Role Playing Game. Level up as you succeed, lose HP as you fail, earn money to buy weapons and armor, compete with your friends.

https://habitrpg.com (the website) has been around for about one year, and has additional features such as guilds, parties, pets, random drops, tags, difficulty settings, etc. We're going to be pulling in features bit-by-bit into the mobile app - but we wanted to get this initial release out there so people can start using it, and hopefully contributing (open source at https://github.com/habitrpg/habitrpg-mobile). If you experience bugs, please jump into https://github.com/habitrpg/habitrpg-mobile/issues. Android 2.3.x users - we'll enable for devices once we can fix the CSS / Angular issues found at http://goo.gl/p9x2Pz

    Just opened the app. First complaint, it lists all of my daily's every day, even if they are assigned to certain days. That would be fine if it listed which are on what day, but in order to see what day they are on I have to edit the daily. I will probably not be using this app for much longer for this reason alone.

    I really like the premise, but this app does not execute on the idea well. More work to keep track of my goals than it is to accomplish them.

    I just wish there were more functionality with guilds/parties/quests in the app itself, rather than having to set up things online. Otherwise, really helpful & fun!

    The app is much better now. There is still lag but it has a much faster response time now + addition of guilds 4/5

    Hi developers of HabitRPG, i really like the concept, the web app is incrediblely very good. But the android app version is so bad. Performance lag, synchronization issue. I have same issue with Cate Burlington, when i've updated the content on app, but when try to sync with web app, it resetted to default. 5 Stars if you can fix this issue and optimize the app. Keep this great works! Thanks! :)
