Finally, Apps That Build Productive Habits

Some apps (Instagram, Facebook) suck your time into a black hole. Others (Listastic, 30/30, Evernote) can actually increase your productivity — a lot. Get busy downloading these time-management tools to your phone.

  1. Another great app that has a great positive impact on productivity is . I like it a lot. It’s easy to use and efficient, it has a time tracking feature, it’s not expensive and, in short, it has everything I need to work faster and waste less time.

  2. I’d also like to add Habitica as a video game-style app that helps you build to-do lists and form good habits. As of now (Nov 2019) it is an active a flourishing community, where you can join a party of adventurers who can help you stay accountable and complete quests by completing your tasks.

    1. I’m finding the same thing. Might need to reach out to iTunes or the app maker ( to see if it will be available again soon.

  3. Hi! The app, Listastic, is not available in the U.S., just a heads up. The app, MIN TO GO, hasn’t been updated to IOS 11. The app, Finish, hasn’t been updated in more than 2 years. I have downloaded a few of the other apps mentioned in this article, can’t wait to try them out to see which one(s) work for me! Also, I’m a subscriber to your emails and I read at least 2-3 articles of yours every single day! They are so informative and have helped me learn more about my ADHD, including how to manage daily life. I would love to purchase your magazine subscription, however, it’s a little too expensive for my family budget. Either way,You guys are the best! Thanks, Additude!

  4. Min to Go was a wonderful app, but it has not been updated (last time I checked) and no longer works with IOS. It was perfect for when I needed to leave the house by a certain time. I could set it up so that it reminded me at various intervolts how close I was getting to when it was time to go. I believe if you look for a “repeat” timer, you can find something similar.

    1. The iOS Google Calendar app has most of the functionality you describe now. You can set it to alert you when it’s time to leave, to allow for travel time (need to put in the address for the location of the event), and allows you to set up to 5 additional alerts. All events can be repeated as well, for daily or weekly reminders and such. I LOVE it! So useful!

  5. Is there an app or a way that will teach me to actually use those apps? Every time I find some nice looking, interesting, helpful apps, I use them for a day or two and then tedious writing down my tasks to do gets too frustrating and I end up stopping using them at all…. :/
