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.

Excellent ideas!

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

I think I may have posted this in the wrong thread
I'm  pleasantly suprised by the urge to build up those points cheesy
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

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.

 Cool

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.
