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.
Finally the Skeleton arises from his grave from 4 years of death to notice the state of the current world, make a fix on the graphical glitches and going back to being dead.
Ratings and Reviews
I wish there was more to it
I really like the idea of this app, and for what it is, it seems pretty cool. However, I get more use out of another app I use for to-dos because there are better rewards. I feel like leveling up a character that doesn't do anything is pointless. It would be cooler to me if the map lead me to short puzzle games alternated with loot. That would motivate me to try to get there. I may continue to use this app, but I find myself quickly jotting notes down on my other to-do app instead. I have ADHD so I really need the motivation! I love the improvements that have been made for this app, but I just feel like it's lacking a little excitement with what to do with loot or to actually perform a quest.
EPIC app for EPIC people
You could look at this app and be annoyed by the simplicity, limited functionality, the extra added sound effects, the music, but that makes you an instant square. For those of who you DESIRE the abstract, and yearn for the ONE TRUE DESIGN IDEA that delivers exactly what it promises in a truly unique and fun way, EPIC WIN IS AN EPIC WIN.
I’ve tried many of these apps, but this is the only one that has actually gotten me motivated and ready for adventure. It feels slightly like your life has been thrown into a video game, and as long as you complete your quests, you can make headway on your journey, unlocking all sorts of special gifts along the way.
Yep, screw all the other apps, all their advances features only screw with your head and make it more time than it’s really worth. For the EPIC stuff, use EPIC WIN, and for once you can feel like it was!
I miss this app
Update: It’s 2020 now and we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. Since its developer stopped updating Epic Win, I’ve had to move on and use other To Do-type apps. It’s been years now and I still miss Epic Win. No other app has come close to bringing me as much joy in completely mundane — and epic — tasks.
Original review: I have been using EpicWin for five years now -- that's longer than my current relationship! While the app has its quirks and sometimes there are bugs, I am always impressed with the original "prizes" and I really love beating up my To Do list. I would pay for this app again if it meant ensuring continued maintenance. I cherish EpicWin. It makes me happy.
