Re­wire: Self-im­prove­ment is a noble goal. It’s good to have some backup.

The Washington Post Sunday - - BUSINESS - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Self-im­prove­ment is al­ways a noble goal, but it’s nice to have some backup. Re­wire is a habit-track­ing app for what­ever to-dos you have on your road map to per­sonal bet­ter­ment. The app is easy to use: Just set up a habit you want to form, and tell the app how fre­quently to re­mind you. The free ver­sion of Re­wire lets you set up as many as five habits that can ping you ev­ery day. To go fur­ther, you’ll have to pay $4.99 for its pre­mium ser­vice.

The app is sim­ple and el­e­gant. It dis­plays a cal­en­dar with pleas­ing green streaks that mark ev­ery day you’ve hit your goals. Red dots break up the streaks if you’ve ne­glected to do some­thing. You can also skip days if you want to give your­self a lit­tle wig­gle room. Re­wire, of course, can’t keep you from mis­re­port­ing your habits. But if you’re ly­ing to your­self in an app that only you see, you’ve prob­a­bly got big­ger prob­lems.

Free, for An­droid de­vices.
