MyChain


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!

LOVE this app! having 1x1 homescreen widgets you can press once each daily (or every other daily) habits... invaluable way to stay on track... just you try and break the chain... dare you...

Love the idea... BUT once installed, as soon as I try opening the app it FORCE CLOSES with the message "The application MyChain (process se.lixi.mychain)has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again. I tried multiple times, I'm gonna have to uninstall. HTC EVO.

Nice, clean simple interface I just wish calendar view filled whole screen. (But I think the reason it doesn't is because I've changed my phone's screen resolution.)

So nearly perfect Only problems are inability to import chains if you have an existing chain. Also changing time zone can confuse it. I went to Europe for two days and it knocked the count out of sync (even when time zone is changed back). Still best at what it does though and no excessive permissions needed.

Suggestion for dev Great app. One suggestion: for the widgets it would be great if there was some indication that this is the last day to do the goal (for a goal that can be done less frequently than every day). Could be something subtle like more bold text or a border or slightly darker background. I have a mix of things that are done on different frequencies and I tend to not realize until the next day that I have gone back to zero.
