Fabulous?

I've been using this all, Fabulous, for almost a month now. I actually find it very helpful. What it does is allow you to set up daily rituals for different times. For instance, my morning rituals -- things I must do -- are drink a glass of water, walk the dog, eat a good breakfast, and write "morning pages." It gives me an alarm and a checklist on my phone to keep track. It also keeps track of how many days in a row I've succeeded in completing my rituals.

It also has a few fun features, like some yoga routines, a seven-minute workout, and various timers for focused writing, power naps, etc.

It does have a couple of downsides. First, the sound effects that go with some of the activities are...over the top, let's say. The sound that goes with the exercise reminder is actually sort of gross, like you've gotten a phone call from a creeper who's breathing heavily on the other end. Luckily, you can turn those off.

The other downside is you have to pay a subscription if you want to unlock all of the features, but I've found it highly useful in the free mode.

Check it out here. I can honestly say I've been getting more writing done and feeling better in the mornings since I started using it.

Also, right now it's only available for Android. They're working on Apple.
