When you’re building a habit tracker app, you better have a good checkbox. The team at (Not Boring) set out to build such an app:
In trying to get a particularly tricky habit to stick, I tried dozens of apps and nothing worked for me. Recording an action felt like yet another chore. None could approach the most basic satisfaction of simply crossing out an item on a list.
Could you design a simple action that felt as satisfying and infuse it with as much symbolism? Were we about to redesign the checkbox?
I think you know where this is headed.
The end result is quite satisfying, but the journey through their design process is just 🤌
