How to keep a track of daily habits using your phone

Developing good habits is everyone’s dream but keeping a track on them might be a problem. It is said that it takes roughly 21 days to develop a habit but with our fast-moving lifestyle can we cope up with that? That’s where Habit trackers come into play.

Habit trackers are basically a medium where you can note down whether you’re following your desired habit or not. Many of us have a ‘habit’ of tracking down the habits on paper but let’s make that handy. Loop – Habit Tracker is an app that lets you create and track your habits on a daily basis with ease. The app supports both daily habits and habits with complex schedules, such as three times every week, one time every other week, or every other day. Loop also has various ways through which you can track and share your habits.

Let’s take a look at how the Loop – Habit tracker app works and explore its features:
