Epic Win App Lets You Level Up Your Life by Turning Errands Into Quests

The Epic Win app is a digital to-do list for iPhone 4 that lets you enter errands as quests. Each entry gets a deadline, an optional alarm and a numerical rating of epicness.

You also choose an avatar (you can rename it if you like -- and why wouldn't you?), and every time you complete a quest he or she travels a little further up a long road that is fraught with danger but glowing with possible reward. Every 100 miles or so up this road, you can find loot. So far, I have traveled 989 miles on the Epic Win app and collected 1,620 pieces of gold. I plan to buy my avatar something pretty should we ever pass a shopping mall.

As you progress in the Epic Win app, you not only travel further and get richer, but you also level up pretty regularly. I am currently at level 4 (Wench of Gainful Employment) but should be hitting level 5 pretty soon.
