In 1726, while on an 80-day ocean voyage from London to Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin developed a plan and corresponding chart for regulating his future conduct.

He based his plan on a chart of thirteen virtues. He committed to giving strict attention to one virtue each week - placing a mark on his chart each time he transgressed that week’s virtue.  After thirteen weeks he moved through all thirteen virtues. He would repeat the course four times a year.

Use this modern incarnation of Benjamin Franklin’s original chart to improve and regulate your daily conduct. Every evening review your day. Tap the day's date to place a mark if you transgressed the week's virtue. One virtue is highlighted every week and the whole chart should be completed four times in a year. The goal is to live your days - giving strict attention to each virtue - without having to place any marks on your chart.

Updates remove data

Love the app, but your update just wiped out all of my data from the past several weeks and started me over at the beginning. Maybe you could add that to your bug list next time.

Support for more than one virtue

Great app. It would be good if I can mark all the virtues instead of just focusing on one virtue alone.

If you are a sensible human you should never download this app. If you love Ben Franklin, never download this app because it is a disgrace to him. There is only one transgressions allowed per day and you can’t even customize your virtues. BH FOR PRESIDENT!
