Ratings and Reviews
This is what I was looking for!
When the new year rolled around, I had so many areas of my life that needed improvement that I felt overwhelmed committing to a bunch of New Year's resolutions that I didn't have discipline to keep. I realized I needed accountability and a rewards system, so I started my own on a wall calendar with tally marks...when lo and behold, my coworker alerted me to the existence of Habitica! This app is perfect for me as a social gamer and a self-improvement fiend. My friends jumped in, and the group motivation to check off our individual habits and to-dos is higher than it could ever be. It's like that African proverb: "If you want to go fast, go alone...if you want to go far, go together."
If I could make Habitica even better, I'd iron out the bugs (the entire rewards page disappears when I add a new reward, the app crashes for me at least once a day, and sometimes it takes awhile for habits to respond). Also be careful when you're switching between desktop and mobile to make sure the changes you made on either one take effect. But I think this app is doing a great job overall, and if they're committed to the principle of self-improvement that they're purposed for, it could be even more amazing!

Really Helpful for School!
It’s ridiculously hard to stay motivated during virtual classes, and I think Habitica has been a big help! I have all my school assignments up on my To-Do list, which is really helpful for keeping track of what to do and for staying motivated in the middle of working on an assignment.
The main reason why I love it so much is that it’s ridiculously effective for me and it’s just what I was looking for. A lot of other habit-tracker/to-do list apps aren’t in an engaging format, and I delete them after slowly losing interest over the course of a few days. I didn’t have this problem with Habitica, because of how it’s part game and part productivity tracker. I’ve been looking for an app like this for ages, and I didn’t find this until my friend recommended it (and thank goodness she did).
I haven’t noticed any bugs, other than the occasional small bug that comes from not syncing with the happening on my computer quickly enough. Occasionally there’s an issue where I check off a To-Do list item or a Daily and it doesn’t change color immediately, but it’s no big deal because the color changes if I go to another tab and then go back to the original. I’m also not entirely sold on the idea of gems basically being only obtainable through money, but I can appreciate that the things they purchase confer mostly cosmetic benefit.

Habitica can be a total Game Changer
I’ve been using Habitica for almost two years now, and I’m here to say that as I was initially a casual user of the app, and have moved to being a player in a world parallel yet decidedly different from our own. With Habitica being a highly customizable game, you truly can gamify your habits and tasks to suit your own level of creativity, utilitarianism, minimalism, and community engagement. The guilds are supportive and members are eager to give encouragement and feedback, and the challenges that the guilds provide are usually well written and sometimes use “RPG lingo” to make it more like a game and less like a chore list.
I started changing the names of my tasks to “unlock achievements “ and my habit lists to “Activate power ups “ , and it’s been significantly helpful to keep my attention and engagement with the app. Furthermore: purchasing the app is going to be the game changer. While you don’t technically “need” to, it opens up another level of interest and engagement with special Pet and potion Quests, and Habitica gives you a bundle of items every month you subscribe, and a special little pet as a thank you. Purchases keep the app free and free of ads for free users.
However, this month I found that the Mystery Gift items did not show up in my Items list. I’m wondering if it’s a bug
