NANY 2019 - Android App - Point Motivator
« on: October 28, 2018, 06:41 AM »
Point Motivator for Android is a productivity utility meant to help motivate you.  It's a simple app that lets you create a list of activities that are worth different amounts of points (possibly negative), and keeps track of your "score" when you engage in the activities.

It's based on my old windows application of the same name, which you can find here.

So, after playing around with it... I still think that there is a place for both together.  Each day, you get points and accumulate a streak.  Your point totals for each day is compared with your prior point total.  When the streak is broken, your points for the entire streak are tallied for a point total for that streak.  So in the end, you get more gamification by the fact that your streaks and point totals for the streaks and days are compared.

Also, I think that adding the ability to set certain goals and rewards for those goals would be a useful addition.
