Chains.cc is an online motivational tool based on the "don't break the chain" method that helps you stick to your good habits and break bad ones.

Each day you stick to your habits your chains grow longe and the longer they are the more you want to keep them from breaking.

It's like a todo list where completed items accumulate to show you how consistently you have kept doing them.

• Easy to use, beautiful interface
• Can be used completely offline. No account required.
• Start using it offline and link to a new or existing account later
• Several fun skins for different needs like running, reading or playing guitar
• Ability to set skipped days if you want to, for example, exercise only on monday, wednesday and friday.

You can also access your chains and join groups for further motivation at our web site https://chains.cc/

Love the app, but sync is an issue

This app is perfectly designed for someone who likes to track multiple habits and see how often they're succeeding. Only complaint is that sync takes a long time and you cannot use the app while it syncs. I'd love a calendar view option to see how well I'm doing in a month view in addition to the current streak view. Otherwise, great app. I want to keep using it so I hope the developers are able to fix the sync issue.

Yes it's worth it

I'm sure there are other apps that are free but this caught my eye because a friend had it and he was over 100 days in with some habits. Skipping a few here and there. Helps me stay on track from little things to from flossing to helping me build new habits with working out and staying sugar free. Just an awesome reminder. I keep it on my home screen and it is one of the few (I have 3) that I allow icon badges to pop up to help remind me. I read daily now thanks to it. Cool you can customize those chains and they change as they get longer just a nice little perk. Great app all around.

Delightful but defunct?

I’ve used this app for years. It is simple and effective. No fancy tricks, just what I need: the ability to add tasks and track them. Very straightforward. However, this summer it started slowing down with “syncing” and I suspect this is due to both new OS updates and the developer has stopped tending to this app. I have no data to support this, it’s just a hunch. I’m leaving this review to nudge the developer to make a fix. Your app is a gem! Would love to keep using. Thanks.
