EpicWin: A To-Do List App With an RPG Theme

To-do lists are a great way to organize yourself and make sure you get things done on time. Unfortunately, I have trouble getting into the habit of using a list on a regular basis.

The new iPhone app EpicWin attempts to solve that problem. It’s a simple to-do list application that encourages you to use it with a unique RPG-style angle. You create a character and level up by completing the tasks you assign yourself. You can mark a to-do item as being worth a certain number of experience points, which go to the relevant skill you designate.

For example: I need to write a blog post today, so I add the task “Write blog post on Webmaster-Source” to EpicWin. I assign it 100xp and list it as a feat of Intellect (as opposed to a feat of Strength or something similar). Once I finish the task and check it off, my character is awarded the experience.

I downloaded the app as soon as it went live in the iTunes store last week, having been anticipating its release for a couple of months now. I think it will (hopefully) be the app that will finally put me in the habit of using a to-do list.

    That video was hilarious…I can see how that might get some folks to get things done, but I’d think I’d just get bored of it after a use or two. I’ll be interested in seeing if you are still using it and what your thoughts are a month or so down the road.

      I’m still using it so far. It’s a nice, simple to-do manager. The RPG aspect just makes it a bit more interesting. I don’t know if the novelty might wear off over time or not. Maybe I’ll edit the post a month or two from now…
