Autohabit is a simple app to use, and it installs with several great habits already available for you to add to your list. These include things like having better posture, performing acts of kindness, and even making better financial decisions.
When you add a habit to Autohabit, you’re signing yourself up for periodic reminders about that new activity or behavior. You’ll be prompted every now and then to record how well you’ve done with that new habit. Some will ask if you’ve done it, while others will have you record your feelings. There are also habits that ask how well you achieved them on a scale of one to 10.
Once you’ve signed up for your new habits, you’ll get those reminders as push notifications. When one comes in, you can record whether or not you achieved that goal for the day, week, or month. Continuous habits will prompt you at various times throughout the day. You can tap on one of your habits to change its settings, see how you’ve been doing with it, or delete it altogether once it’s become ingrained into your daily routine.
Why we love it
If none of the built-in habits apply to you, all you have to do is create your own. This is a really nice feature, since you can customize the app and its notifications according to what you need to learn to do better.
When you create a new habit, you go through a short process of naming it and deciding whether it should be a continuous habit, a daily habit, or judged weekly or monthly.
You also pick how to record feedback on the habit. You can leave it as a yes/no, record how well you did on a scale of one to 10, or provide your feelings after completing the habit.
All of this comes together in a nice, simple interface that’s easy to use. Developing new habits isn’t easy, but it definitely comes more quickly when you get the periodic reminders that Autohabit provides.
The best feature of this app, hands down, is the ability to customize it. You can even customize the prebuilt habits, changing their frequency to best suit your needs and wants.
