23 Gamified Productivity Apps

From Habit-Tracking Apps to Minimalist Calendar Apps

— July 15, 2015 — Tech
While gamification has seemingly endless applications, habit-tracking apps that encourage productive behavior are certainly among the most useful. Proving that "life hack" culture is alive and well and consumers are always looking to streamline their daily activities, productivity apps help individuals make the most of their time through a variety of smartphone-based notifications and reminders.

Whether through features that enable social sharing or those that award points, consumers are often better enticed through subtle pseudo reward systems than other intrinsic motivators.

Minimalist calendar apps that streamline daily schedules in a visually stimulating way may help one clear through the clutter and get more done. Conversely, habit-tracking apps that highlight seemingly innate behaviors can make it easier to commit to small changes that can revolutionize productivity in everyday life.
