What can you use the app for?

HabitForge is a simple application that is based on the idea that new habits take 21 days to establish. The application supports and holds users accountable to the new habits. First, users can decide on what habit they'd like to forge. Then, the application will send users ca daily email. This email has a simple yes and no hyperlink for users to indicate on their daily checkpoint if they achieved their goal that day for that habit. After 21 days, the user will have succeeded at forging a new habit! The user can either forge habits on their own or as a member on a team. Users can sign up for free or setup a premium membership that provides them advertisement-free access to the site. The app will also track all of the habits that a user has forged and their successes and perhaps abandoned projects. HabitForge also features inspirational content on its site including pre-planned habits that users could join onto. HabitForge helps users keep on track for their goals and become a better person.
