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

    I am unable to see my shade spider or my subscriber goblin gear. I am similarly unable to use my pickpocket ability. I find myself just using the desktop version through chrome.

    Is there a way to upload a pic of yourself instead of choosing from the existing photos? Or maybe replace with an avatar or something?

    To be clear, I'm a huge fan of the system. I use the Web interface from my computer a lot. However the android client has a lot of problems, most notably that it doesn't seem to sync very well. Some days it syncs successfully, but a lot of times it gets stuck on a day and won't check off dailies with the service. It also seems incompatible with the spell system, which i find very important.

    If it had less lag and slightly better visuals (more that 64 bit) then this would be the best app ever made.

    I can do nothing with this app when I am offline. Say I create a new task while offline. When I connect to the internet, the task just disappears. Instead, wouldn't it be better if the task gets added to my account when I go online. Basically, we should be able to use this app when offline and everything should be synced with the account once we go online.
