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

    Clunky, nonresponsive, painful to use interface clearly not made with Android interface guidelines in mind.

    I've used several apps like this but this is by far the best one I've encountered. I love that the reward and punishment systems are separate. Biggest compliant is that habits will duplicate.

    This app is a great supplement to the website; however, I'd like to see it head toward being independent of the site. It works well for avatar management, addressing habits/dailies/tasks, and a few other tasks. There's limited access to parties, guilds, challenges, etc. This is critical for my purposes. A 3 star app, with a bonus star for its direction. Thanks!

    This particular app had regular problems with syncing with the site. If it wasn't for that issue, I'd stick to it but its cumbersome since the app bugged out on me when I first logged in and created different User IDs...
