The Best Apps to Build Better Habits (and Stick to Them)

If simply listing your habits isn’t getting you anywhere near sticking to them, consider Goalify: This app uses reminders, tips, and schedules to make sure you’re giving yourself the best chance of succeeding, and you can join with friends for an extra level of accountability. With the free version of the app, you can track three goals at once.

Goalify is incredibly flexible in terms of what you can track and how you can track it, and the app interface is clean and polished—it’s no surprise that the app offers a premium plan for professional or business use, because it gives off that sort of vibe. Absolutely worth trying if you want a complete goal and habit solution with an abundance of attached features.

Habitica adds a bit of gamification to the habit-forming process, turning your efforts to read every day or to always tidy up in the evening into a game—complete with characters, levels, and challenges. If you really want to put yourself to the test, you can use Habitica with relatives or friends, and get them to keep you honest and on track.

You input the habits you want to get into, with as much or as little detail as you like, and Habitica will challenge you to stick to them with reminders and progress charts. As you tick off certain habits and milestones, you can upgrade your in-game avatar, unlock extra features, and earn yourself some rewards (like an episode of your favorite TV show).
