HabitMinder helps you track your progress towards completing habit goals each day. For example, you might want to walk 10,000 steps each day, sleep for eight hours, meditate for 30 minutes, or do 20 push-ups.
HabitMinder can collect some of this data automatically through your iPhone or from other apps. You must update other habits manually.
One you reach the goal of a habit, it will appear as Completed on HabitMinder's home screen.
How to Update Habits
To complete a habit, you must update it.
The habits that can update automatically are walking, meditating, hydrating, exercising, and standing. You can also update each of these habits manually with the exception of walking. The walking habit updates as your phone tracks you walking.
Updating Habits Manually
There are two methods of manually updating a habit. You can tap the habit you want to update manually.
The other option for manually updating a habit is to swipe left on it.
This gives you quick update options. In the case of push-ups, the quick options are to add five push-ups or 10 push-ups.
You may see a timer on some habits.
You can also tap the tick to mark the habit complete for today.
Different Options for Manually Updating Habits
The method for updating a habit depends on the type of habit. There are three main options:
- Manual add
- Quick add with predefined values
Standing is an example of manually adding to your progress.
You can tap the + and - icons to add and remove hours, or you can tap "I did it!" to mark the habit as complete.
Another option you have is to tap the three dots at the top of the screen.
One of the options in the menu that appears is Add. Tap this.
You can then manually enter a value for the habit before tapping Add.
An example of a habit that offers the quick update with predefined values option is push-ups.
The options are 5, 10, 15, and other.
When you tap other, you can enter a manual value.
Riding a bike is an example of a habit that updates via a timer.
Simply tap Start and the timer will begin. Tap Pause when you finish.
