Weightloss and dieting are considered one the hardest things to stick to. For anyone wanting to lose weight, or bulk up, it’s hard to follow a taxing new exercise routine and watch what you eat. Those who are beginning to take their first steps towards fitness will find that there are a slew of services, apps, and communities that they can turn to for help, support, and advice. For other habits that get less attention, there isn’t much out there in terms of a helpful app. Meet HabitBull, an app dedicating to helping you track your habits and stick to them. The app has been available on Android for well over a year and we reviewed it back in May 2014. HabitBull has a whole new look is now available for iOS. The developers are generously offering a free upgrade to premium to our readers. Details at the end.
HabitBull is essentially for developing habits and sticking to them one day at a time. The app isn’t restrictive in any sense so you can create just about any sort of habit. It does feature broad categories for sorting the habits you’re trying to beat, or develop. Additionally, it also lets you color code habits by type which is useful if, for example, you have habits you want to develop and also ones you want to quit. You can set the good habits to Green, and the bad ones to Red.
For every habit you add, HabitBull asks you to set a success parameter for it. It can be simple like a Yes/No or you can quantify it e.g. drink 8 glasses of water daily.
HabitBull also comes with stats. Lots and lots of awesome stats. You can check out your running streak for a week or a month and spot which days you slagged off and which ones were good. Additionally, you can set a ‘success’ date. It takes about 66 days for something to become a habit and you can set a reminder/alert/goal for when you reach that point for a habit. You can of course edit it to be longer or shorter than 66 days.
The app is pretty great on a free plan but with premium you can backup your data to a cloud service, sync data to multiple devices, track up to 100 habits, export data, and be eligible to get all future features introduced for premium users.
