In this age of digitalization, we often turn a blind eye to essential things in our life. Our phones carrying social distractions such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have derailed our productivity. Did you find it hard to reach a goal or keeping track of small habits and important activities in life recently?
We have a solution for that — Habit Tracking apps. Both the App Store and Play Store are filled with various habit tracker apps. These apps can be beneficial in tracking routines such as taking medicines, walks, brushing teeth at night, watering the plants, etc. These are just some of the scenarios to use any habit tracking app.
In this post, we will walk you through the top five habit tracker apps for iOS and Android. The details will include top features, the highlight of the app, price, cross-platform function, and more. Let's jump in.

Now, tap on + icon, and the app will present you with a list of habits and you can add frequency, days, and reminders.
