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
Habit RPG 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

    As a gamer (or lack of at moment), I find making tasks and things I want to change is easier to do with this creative idea. There are thing I would like that hopefully would come soon, a widget, it'll be easier see things tasks or things that need to be done without having to open the app each time.

    The app needs a lot of work to make it more responsive, faster, slicker UI and etc. However, the ideas behind this app is gold and I hope the developers really take it to the next level by adding more content and polishing up the app.

    habitRPG is great, but I do like the mobile website better than the mobile app.

    I usually prefer using the website...can't use the app without wi-fi & it's hard to navigate

    I've tried many to-do and productivity apps and none have been able to motivate me quite like this. I love it so much I have decided to subscribe to support the developers, and I encourage everyone to do the same, especially if you are self-employed and have increased your income with this app as I have. Give back a little! The only thing lacking is that there are a few features that are only ava
