EpicWin is an iPhone app that puts the adventure back into your life. It’s a streamlined to-do list, to quickly note down all your everyday tasks, but with a role-playing spin. So rather than just ticking off your chores and reminders, completing each one earns you XP to improve and develop your character in an ongoing quest to improve stats, gain riches, and level-up.
To-do list with a Role-Playing Game spin
Streamlined and fast to use
Range of avatars to level-up with
Destroy your chores in animated battles
Points and rewards for completing your tasks
Loot to discover and share
By getting points for your chores it's easier to actually get things done. We all have good intentions but we need a bit of encouragement here and there. Doing the laundry is an epic feat of stamina so why not get stamina points for it?!
The to-do list is fully-featured and supports repeating tasks, displays reminders for overdue events and allows time-critical events to be assigned to specific days, while more aspirational quests can be set to "someday" so you don't lose sight of your goals. And each task completed is destroyed by your avatar, so get your Undead Warrior to beat-up your laundry, or your Treeman to headbutt your overspilling inbox.
The app is supplied with 5 animated avatars which grow in characteristics that represent your own life. Will you be a Maiden of Juggled Priorities, or a King of Win? The lifestyle you lead will decide.
Changed the Calendar to be a better one that works on latest iOS versions.
Ratings and Reviews
Gets dull very quickly 😴
Don't get me wrong, the idea is a great concept: making life into a game, earning rewards for doing the dull stuff we don't want to do. However, the app soon gets boring when you can't actually do anything with the loot or coins you acquire. We should be able to buy add ons for our avatar or maybe get new worlds to explore with our coins. It would also be good to have some statistics to motivate us e.g. I gained X coins last week or month so I can compare my productivity over the weeks and months. What's worse is that you often getting the same loot and have no way of swapping them loot for ones you don't have. How is it a fun reward to get the same stuff over and over again?? I loved this app when I first downloaded it and my productivity really improved but it's time to give us faithful users a decent update.
Fun... for a while.
This app is slick but needs more incentive and reward. The presentation and idea behind it is great. At first it's exciting to complete tasks and gain experience. But what is the benefit? Gaining the occasional treasure is fun but not enough to hold your interest for long. I don't know what will happen when I level up, because after a week's regular use I'm still level 1, but from what I've read there is some kind of unspecified character development? Maybe your avatar will change? Or your title? Whatever the answer it takes too long to keep you interested.
There's no point developing your character and equipping items as people have suggested, unless you can do something with your character. Maybe there should be a simple battle or challenge to win the loot? Or the function to battle other players?
I realise this is primarily a to-do list app, not a game, but my opinion is that the gimmick will be short lived unless new features are added. And if that's the case there is no reason to choose this app over other more accomplished to-do list apps, which are more comprehensive and user friendly. Hoping for a revolutionary update.
Makes productivity more fun but missing categories!
I like the app and use it regularly. I have found it hard to categorize some tasks though. Some things, such as eating fruit; for example. This might be more accurately described as health or nutrition. Time keeping and finance would also be good additions as I struggle with both. Another idea would be to link loot with the character of the achievement!
