Android Apps from James Porter for productivity, taking notes and more.
See all my Android Apps on Google Play.
Habit Streak was selected alongside apps from the BBC, Guardian and Sky as a British Favourite by Google. It has also been selected as one of MakeUseOf's Best Android Apps.
Habit Streak helps you achieve your goals (or New Year's Resolutions) in exercise, diet or other areas of your life. Each day you report on whether you succeeded yesterday, building up streaks of habits and ingraining the activities into your life.
"After a few days you'll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You'll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain" (Jerry Seinfeld)
Habit Streak has two key advances on Jerry Seinfeld's original technique. Firstly it allows you to build several chains up at once. Secondly it (optionally) prompts you every day to report on your success (whereas one could easily forget to update or look at a physical calendar).
I created Write as a minimalist notepad and journal for early Android tablets. It has since been updated for use on smaller tablets such as the Google Nexus 7. It was selected by CNET as one of their best apps for students.
Write offers both a minimalist writing interface that allows you to focus on what you are currently writing and a proper Android style interface for managing your notes/journal entries. It has the features which should be in an Android text editor: clean interface, word count, proper Android appearance and searching your notes.
It saves automatically and allows you to quickly share your notes with other apps and other people. It has themes, folders and markdown support among other features; but it keeps the main writing interface clean and clear for you to focus on your writing.
I also have a few of my apps on Amazon's store.
To Do Log was featured by Google on their front page.
To Do Log is a to do list and not to do list in one. You assign points (either negative or positive) to tasks; then work to get the highest score over time by both doing things you want to do and avoiding those you shouldn't do.
I have an infrequently updated Blog.
