Don't break the chain! MyChain helps you reach your goals day by day.

This technique worked out fine for Jerry Seinfeld and it will for you too. The philosophy is simple: Small steps every day brings you closer to your goals. MyChain motivates you to stay on track and to not give in to casual weaknesses. But if you do have a reason, MyChain's "good excuse" feature comes to your rescue.

MyChain features multiple chains, home screen widgets, a calendar view and variable frequencies as well as a unique rewarding system to motivate you even more.

Feedback is greatly appreciated!

Recently changed in this version

Redesigned widget so that it looks more like a widget and less like an icon
Made a confirmation dialog on chain delete
Also target 1.6 devices
Fixed moving up/moving down chains.
Looking better on Android 4 (Holo)
Updated UI so features are easier to find
Added possibility to delay change of day

Made a lot of under the hood-changes, so it is not impossible that some functionality is broken. Please give feedback and I will try to update soon again.

    I am always striving for consistency and this app has helped me achieve it. Add a task like "no sugar, candy, or sweets" and see how long you can hold out. Great for forming new habits. Very simple functionality that works!

    All counters reset randomly when a chain exceeds 100. Calendar view doesn't match counters. Dev pretty much never updates. Too buggy to rely on, though parts of it were good ideas.

    I love this app. No other app I tried let me check off today from a widget and continue my chain for another day without opening the app. Just show me where I can donate $$. Having a calendar view is also a key feature for me.

    Great app but I don't think notifications are working. It would be perfect if I could tell it to notify me at a specific time of day if I have not done my task.

    I routinely have the widget and calendar day status colors change from a normal color to a darker shade of a normal color, and they then also can be unresponsive to normal changes. They may be related to when I travel across time zones. I have been locked out of back correcting past days, where green is no longer an option. The inconsistency damages what would otherwise be a most wonderful app. O
