    A to-do app for nerds

    • Lovely 8bit and RPG inspiration
    • More features and customization option would be welcomed

    "Final boss: call mum"

    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.

    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. (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 If you experience bugs, please jump into Android 2.3.x users - we'll enable for devices once we can fix the CSS / Angular issues found at

    Habitica (formerly havitrpg) updated their api, and this app no longer works. Get the habitica app instead.

    I installed both this app and the new version since they have different levels of functionality, and occasionally also check out the website. I can understand that might seem tedious for some people, but I absolutely love the concept, and enjoy the apps and the website! They are great for accountability and motivation.

    While an interesting concept, ultimately this app is a to-do list that requires more from the "player" than a to-do list, while being more complex than a pad of paper and a pencil. Its also rather easy to set up in such a way as to never lose, but then its intended purpose is lost as well.
