Hi,

I just recently stumbled in - I found a link to Point Motivator at LifeHacker.

So far the applications works just fine. But after some play, I think the following function would be helpful:

- Track point in different categories (e.g. if I want to track my progress in working out and reading). I know, you can change xml, but this a bit to much of a fuss.

- Set goals (e.g. x points a week). I think the setting of goals is an essential part of motivation.

I would like to discuss those points.

Cheers, F.

both of those ideas are already on my todo list, so we must think alike.

Excellent ideas!

And an excellent program, mouser. I've finally started using it regularly, and so far it actually does help :) I was pretty certain that this program would catch on, unlike what you thought of it at first ;)

I think I may have posted this in the wrong thread
I'm  pleasantly suprised by the urge to build up those points :D
thanks mouser :Thmbsup:

a minor bug:
the reward column on the "Earn Points" tab only ever shows 10points here regardless of actual amounts (which work okay otherwise)
a minor request:
could you get it to come out of the tray on one click? (please!)
oh, and option to close to tray would be good too but only as icing

I have other ideas/requests but havent looked at this xml aspect of it yet so will post again
Tom

No problem because to the delay. After all, we all have another life off-line, haven't we?

Nice to hear, you are thinking in the same direction... The app was reminding me of a PalmOS app called 'Universal Tracking System', http://www.utracksys.com/, which is a great deal more generic, but I used it for stuff, I will possibly be doing with Point Motivator.

Perhaps.
I have examined various goals software.
You have accomplish.
With Point Motivator you have not that duty

Is more flexible. Give more liberty.

I am not thinking exactly Point Motivator like a self help program.
Mostly like a control program of certain mode of activation or activities.
But I suppose that all is rounding the same goals (Excuse my english)
I have used for years Pop Wisdom adapted as a memory program. So perhaps I am not the ideal person to take an opinion.

At the present moment I suspect PM is not the predilect soft for Mouser, and I am supposing have some type of programming difficulty I can't analyze, but also observed that is not a buried project from his author. And I hope to help in some aspects I would like.
