X Marks The Spot: 7 weeks App Review | 26 Android Apps in April for the #AtoZchallenge

7 weeks Android

Wikipedia defines a Habit as a routine of behaviour that is repeated regularly and tends to occur unconsciously.

Habits are hardy things, difficult to make and break. Earlier in the #AtoZchallenge Glenda had posted about habits. Here’s what she had to say…

“We form habits through repetitive behavior. Often our habits attach themselves to our lives much like a ganglion cyst. Changing a habit requires behavior modification for many, concerted effort and cognizance of the habit for others.”

One trick to building a habit or making a certain behaviour a habit is doing it consistently for 7 weeks. That means tracking it everyday to make sure you do what is required everyday for 7 weeks.

What the 7 weeks App’s supposed to do


You create a calendar for each habit you would like to track and set a start date. You can also enter a reason for why you are trying to make something a habit.

In settings you can choose the theme as light or dark and also select morning or evening reminders. Each day mark the calendar with a not or cross based on whether you completed the habit or not.

Along with a calendar view of the 7 weeks for each habit, the app also offers statistics about your habit and performance.

How I’m using the 7 weeks App


I have been using the app to track my goal of reading the news everyday on the Inshorts app. (I spoke about this habit I want to form in my Inshorts app review)

I also use the app to track non-habit things like days when Cuckoo showed leg pain or Senti had a tummy upset. Not exactly tracking a habit but the app is great for showing trends/days at a glance.

My thoughts on the 7 weeks App


This is a very simple app but it’s really useful as it helps build a habit and makes you feel good everyday when you check off another successful day into the habit. A good way to get reminded and track a habit too!
