~~Habits!~~ "Loop - Habit Tracker"! I use it to control I do my Spanish lessons on Duolingo each day, that I workout every other day, that I take my pills, that I remember to see everything as an opportunity. It's a great simple app, and the dark mode is beautiful.
And it's free with no ads!!
Loop - Habit Tracker
Try checking out some of the subs that revolve with getting yourself on track such as r/productivity or something. It's good to habitualize daily events even. I personally have little reminders for simple things like brushing teeth. There is an app called "Habit" and there is a little moticum of happiness from checking off a box for each event.
As far as for outward appearance when around everyone else, for me what helps is I tell myself little things as I'm getting ready like "Look good, feel good" or "Smell good, look good, feel good" stupid stuff, if anything I'll get a chuckle out of myself. The mirror can work wonders, focus on things you like about yourself.
Also I have a tendency to not want to bother other people or disrupt their lives with what's going on with me, I'll bottle it in which, is unhealthy, find someone you can talk to and talk. Most important would be to receive professional help, I have yet to do that step minus my initial diagnosis.
EDIT: I'm really happy with all the positivity around this comment, also I made a mistake the app is called "Loop - Habit Tracker"
ES File manager on Android. It is by far the most comprehensive file manager on the market. The ability open my phones file structure from my PC with a couple of clicks makes transfering files a snap. I wouldn't be without it.
1) planning everything, even the little things. I use a tracker with reminders to do chores, learn a language and exercise. For everything else I use google calendar. For some reason, having a daily plan allows me to do a lot more than I otherwise do. There's some satisfaction in seeing a list of tasks shrink.
2) evaluating my free time. This mainly involved video games and my internet browsing experience. Basically, if I felt that something I was doing involved a lot of "filler time" or something that I wasn't really enjoying, I just stopped doing it. Now I never play video games that make me angry or involve a lot of walking or travelling from point A to point B and I stopped watching youtube personalities and youtube drama (shit like H3H3). Now I spend less time playing games and browsing the internet, but I enjoy that time considerably more.

I literally just switched to Join-- does everything Pushbullet does, but doesn't require a subscription.
piggyback, Check State Laws before recording phone calls to see if you are in a one or two party state but OP if you are on Android I recommend ACR. It has worked great for me.
I recommend Solid Explorer, it has nice material design, plenty of cool features, and is a single payment (after a 30 day trial). It's what I switched to after ES.
Discovered this app 2 days ago. An free, open sourced Habit tracker. Relatively new with 50-100 downloads only but 4.9 rating.
Simple, elegant, functional design. Detailed statistics and widgets. No excessive permissions. Developer is active.
Linkme: Loop: Habit Tracker by Alinson S Xavier
Edit- Heres correct link
Loop: Habit Tracker
Edit 12:50pm EST- A new review mentions developer posted it on r/androiddev (developer is /u/iSoron)
Solid Explorer is my favorite. I ditched ES as soon as the first version of Solid Explorer came out. It is beautiful functional and customizable. It supports extensions, so there are some extensions that add FTP support and other cloud service integrations. It has the option of a dual-pane explorer interface as well.
Powerful file, cloud and root explorer with Material Design.
I abandoned pushbullet for Join, which only requires a one time payment after the 30 day trial. Not as good as pushbullet yet, but works well enough for me.
I'm surprised IFTTT hasn't been mentioned yet. It's an app that combines many services together and let's you get creative with them in a very user-friendly interface.
just a reminder that if anyone wants to disable "is typing" notifications, it can be done with AutoNotification. just add a rule for Snapchat notifications that have notification text containing typing.
I downloaded Termux the other day and installed vim. I couldn't figure out how to leave insert mode without the ESC key, lol...
I ended up downloading Hacker's Keyboard, it worked like a charm.
This is true. Samsung phones had this really nice calendar widget that wouldn't show up on Nova, so I had to download a calendar widget off the play store with similar features.
Here's the widget I ended up using.
Just a few thoughts on this:
You might want to hop over to /r/theXeffect/ and put your goals on cards. I use an app called Loop - Habit Tracker to keep track of my daily goals.
Also, these are my daily goals in case you or someone else needs inspiration:
Yep. Time to switch to solid explorer file manager. I noticed the clean master crap in the front page of the app and immediately uninstalled the app
Link to solid if you want it [link]
Hi again, today I have another bunch of free unlock codes for these two color schemes:
How to activate:
Go to About->Redeem code and enter the color scheme unlock code
Set the new scheme under Settings->Color scheme.
Each code has a limit of 100 activations. Enjoy!
Join - I couldn't live without this. It was originally a Pushbullet alternative that emerged during the Pushbullet Pro debacle. But it's moved well beyond that. SMS from my pc, notification mirroring and actions, send clipboard (auto/universal and manual), transfer files, take screenshot from pc, screen capture video from pc, etc.
After the latest update, Solid Explorer File Manager is just too good not to mention.
Does everything ES can do (that I've seen so far), and is absolutely beautiful. Animations everywhere, customizable themes, and just a joy to use.
Linkme: Solid Explorer File Manager
Edit: correct link here
Linkme bot did the wrong one
It's a simple little app to help you track your progress at adopting a new habit. The app successfully got me in the habit of cleaning my apartment on a regular basis.
Edit: it's also worth mentioning that this app requires no permissions, and has no ads.
Powerful file, cloud and root explorer with Material Design. It's a nice alternative to ES File Explorer.
This is what I use. I have my own legal matters, so I'm recording calls through my phone.
Make sure the state that you're in has one party consent statue.
Don't use ES File Explorer.
Use Solid Explorer instead.
They monetized their app very poorly. Instead of offering additional features, they removed features to put them behind a paywall. Additionally, their price is incredibly excessive given the service they provide.
If anyone is looking for an alternative, I'd suggest going with Join, which recently came out of beta. The app is supported by a one time payment and optional advertisement. It works just like Pushbullet.
I really enjoy Month. It's a great looking calendar widget that is beautifully designed and is very useful to me. I have a Google Calendar synced with multiple people and it handles it perfectly.
I didn't see Join mentioned yet. It has a lot of Pushbullet-like features, you can mirror SMS on your computer through Chrome, share files, clipboard, tabs, etc. Pretty useful and also free.
Edit: Not free, there's a one time purchase.
There is always Join as well. All of the Pushbullet functionality. None of the price. Plus, it has amazing Tasker integration, and it's made by the AutoApps guy, who makes routinely good stuff.
Accessing battery information on Android is quite easy. All you need is a file explorer like Solid Explorer to navigate to the corresponding data which is exposed in the Android file system.
The paths are different for each model but the data can usually be found in a directory called /sys/class/power_supply/battery (or similar) in the root partition (you may need root on some devices to access the files).
On my S7 it looks like this and I can access more than 100 files with various battery related statistics.
Edit: actually you may need root on some devices to access this data.
I was wrong about the name!! It's just translates to "Vaner" in Danish which means "Habits" so I thought that was its name - it's named "Loop - Habit Tracker" by Álison s Xavier!
And NO ads for free!!
Go solid explorer brothers. it's flawless and you probably have an extra $50 in play credit, so don't whine about paying for a great app.
2 week free trail solid explorer
DLNA, cloud, chromecast, FTP server, root browsing, material, usb otg (paid plugin),all with themes including an amoled black.
Also document everything.
And depending on legality in your state, install and use Call Recorder - ACR. If you are unsure of the laws, just start every call off with her with "this call is being recorded."
And if reasonable, don't talk to her in person without someone else as a witness.
I've been considering using this after Pushbullet anounced subscription fee. When it was announced it wasn't really feature packed, and I didn't switch yet.
Latest Pushbullet update caused it to drain a lot of battery on my phone, so I finally gave up on it, installed Join, and paid the one-time fee for it. It's much more polished and has a lot of new features. Some options from Pushbullet still aren't there, and there are a lot features in it that Pushbullet doesn't have. There are a few quirks here and there, but it's still in beta, and developer is resolving those quickly.
So far I'm happy with it, and the price isn't really that much.
Little side-tip related to habit building: get an app like Loop - Habit Tracker. I've found it to be really helpful in building habits, and it helps getting past little slip ups as well.
I found the Hackers Keyboard to be good on the Android. It gives you all the function keys and arrow keys. Just using a basic terminak, the up arrow saves me lots of time not retyping.
Have used it with vim, it has proper shift, ctrl and alt.
Still need to try Spacemacs on the Android.
I use Solid Explorer, it filled the void ES left after it went to shit. I don't know if it's missing any features, it does everything I need it to do.
Solid Explorer is pretty good, can handle a lot of compressions and even has root explorer. I was in the same boat as you using ES and then getting raped by bloat.
You can block it using AutoNotification (no root required).
Select "notification blocking" and search for "com.qualcomm.qtil.aptxui" and just hit okay without entering a filter.
Well, there's Google calendar that I really like. And there's Today Calendar. Both look really good and gets the job well done.
Today Calendar also has good widgets, but I prefer the Calendar Widget: Month as my cal widget.
Linkme: Google Calendar, Today Calendar
Way to record your calls. I have an Android app that auto-records any call that I make or receive. After each call I get the option to save the recording. It's rare that I need to save them, but it's good to have the option.
EDIT For everyone asking, the app is Call Recorder - ACR
There goes nothing.
Going for a productive Layout, These are my most used, everything else is left in the drawer.
Used Nova and Month
Have you tried join?
You can use the applet id 57612152d to use mine or you can make your own:
Download the IFTTT app.
Open it and register.
Tap the "+" in the upper right corner to make a new applet
Tap "+ this" and select reddit
Select "New hot post in subreddit" and enter "uplifting news" (The title of my post is actually wrong, it should say "hot" instead of "top")
Tap "+ that" and select "Android Wear"
Select "Send notification"
Make it appear the way you want. I entered "Good news, everyone!" before the [Title] placeholder and removed the content of the "image URL" field
Enjoy some positive news throughout the day
I've been using Textra with Join for desktop messaging (via the Chrome extension) and it's been great for the most part. It has some difficulty handling group SMS but I don't use group texting very often so it hasn't been much of a problem for me.
Great app and has an integration into Home Assistant and Node Red
you can use Autonotification to get rid of it! go to Notification blocking, choose Snapchat and add "typing" as filter text.
I've been using Join by joaoapps to sync everything you can imagine (sms/mms, notifications, copy clipboard, share files...) on all your devices (Android app, chrome extension, Windows 10 app, join webpage). It was only $4.99 for a lifetime subscription. A nice thing about Join is that everything's stored on your Google Drive instead of a 3rd party server and it works with any SMS client (I personally use Messages or Textra). It even supports Google Assistant/tasker integration but I have not tried it.
SwiftKey. Its word prediction algorithms are the best. I've been using it for years and tried a lot of other keyboards but none ever came close.
Join is better than Airdroid - and yes, it's a Pushbullet replacement that was built in the aftermath of the Pushbullet freemium debacle.
Edit: Some day I'll remember how to link in reddit.
Mhhh, looks like a much more limited version of IF by IFTTT - any reason to pick this over the other?
Also, this Hook unlock isn't account-bound and won't survive a re-install or switching devices.
Smells like a scam to ride on good a reputation of another app. This one has ~50K installs.
The original and good "ACR" with +10M installs is at
and it usually costs $2/2€, over 100K bought
I'm a huge Join fan, and have been a beta tester since day one. I've also donated $ to the project and paid to see this app progress.
That said, the Windows 10 app is not worth it - even if it were free. Really, if you are a Chrome user, there is no reason for the Windows 10 app to exist. The Chrome extension is great.
(You're not missing anything by not getting the Windows 10 app. Seriously)
I downloaded ES File Explorer so I could move my content between phones over wifi without having to use the piece of junk that is Android File Transfer (and neither phone has USB 3.0, so it would be slow as well). All you have to do is make sure both phones are on the same wifi network, open ES File Explorer on both phones, select the file(s) or folder(s) you want to move to the 6P, then hit menu --> send, select the 6P in the device list, then press the send button and you can send them over wifi. I moved my pictures, videos, and downloads this way.
I also used SMS Backup and Restore to backup my texts, then used ES File Explorer to move the backup file to the 6P, then restored it.
Join would work for that. Its cheaper and a 1 time purchase. Join has a 30 day free trial.
Pulse sms is a good text messaging app with a web interface. Very similar to Textra.
Now you can get the full version for half the price only for limited time!
mixplorer and solid explorer both do sftp among others. There are also many other apps (file managers and dedicated ftp servers) that can serve this purpose on play store, but these are the ones I use.
AutoNotification (a paid Tasker plugin) has standalone functionality that would block the notifications. It supports regular expressions, making it able to block based on text (case sensitive or not) and text position. The messages would still be there, but at least you wouldn't be pestered by the notifications.
I must say that one that soothes my ears almost daily is having Tasker reduce media volume during Pandora advertisements and brings it back up when the music starts again. The Tasker subreddit community here helped me with that one immensely. Requires AutoNotification.
You can still love your job, but you may have to love your job with another company or with your own rig. If they're treating you like shit just be sure to document everything. EVERYTHING. I suggest you get a call recording app as well. I use ACR and it actually saved my ass on Monday when a repo company called my boss and outright lied about my phone interactions with them. NY is a single party consent state, and FWIK in a 30 second google search it's the same in Canada. That means as long as you know that you are recording the call then you don't have to tell them that they are on a recorded line. Best $3 I ever spent.
Stay strong. The world is full of assholes.
While KDE Connect is usable on Windows, it's not being actively developed for that platform and thus not as awesome. I would recommend non-KDE users to use Join by u/joaomgcd . Awesome dev, has a lot of projects (he recently took over Tasker) and all of them are united on a single ecosystem of apps.
This works great for phone calls... Automatically records call and you can set it to ask you if you want to save it when the call is done. No root needed
Call Recorder - ACR
I am still working on it so I can't really answer your question. Now, you have your own milestones and you'll probably want to have as many non-zero days as possible but my objectives are a bit more specific (be productive for x hours/days, wake up before 8 AM, etc) and to keep track of everything, I needed another app - loop habit tracker. I don't know if you'll need it but it offers a bit more granularity in case you don't want to limit yourself to four broad categories.
A decent file explorer that isn't the miserably bad ES File Explorer ([link]) - we just want something that can map out NAS or network server so we can launch videos stored there. Thanks for asking
Get the Join app for android. Do stuff on your phone via a web browser on your desktop/laptop
There are several other apps which does similar things. This is just one of them.
Join by joaoapps
have a one-time payment. if I remember correctly is around 5$.
worth every dollar for me.
This can block any notification that contains any word from any app, useful for permanent notifications that cannot be disabled.
the best is swiftkey.
no other can match the options nor size or themes.https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey&hl=en_US
give it a shot. haptic 3d touch vibrations
It's called Loop - Habit Tracker, best minimalistic and straightforward app I have ever used to track stuff, plenty of interesting stats and great widgets too
Protip Android-käyttäjille: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nll.acr&hl=en
Kerran vasta tullut tarpeen oikeasti, kun piti todistaa että asiakaspalvelija lupasi jotain mitä väitti ettei ollut luvannut.
Muutoin tarkistellut pariin otteeseen puhelulogista, että millon se vitun autohuolto nyt oikeasti oli, kun en jaksanut heti lisätä kalenteriin. :D
I would download Loop - Habit Tracker and set a daily habit entitled "Didn't check Reddit ��" or something like that (or more likely an inverse habit of when I do, with a focus to avoid building the habit).
Gboard should go into an "incognito" mode when using a private browser window.
You can also delete suggestions by dragging them up from the suggestion bar into the trash can that appears.
When I don't want to worry about that at all though, I switch to Hacker's Keyboard as an alternative. It's nice and lightweight.
Try out Join.
Si no te importa tu seguridad/privacidad mandate con SwiftKey y su predicción en base a tus mensajes, facebook, correo y twitter. Después de un tiempo vas a ver como en lugar de escribir vas a ir eligiendo palabras.
IF by IFTTT can do the same and a lot more and isn't just limited to Android but a platform-independent service.
Since it's entirely server und push based it also has the enormous benefit of not waking the Android device every 15 minutes (configurable) and guzzling a bunch of mobile data and battery power in the process. [Seriously, doing multiple Reddit searches every 15 minutes from a mobile device should have a more than insignificant impact on both].
Since IF is more flexible and less focused on this specific task, it may be a tiny bit harder to set up but it's far from difficult to use.
I don't mean to be too harsh on this app, I'm sure it is well designed and has its use cases. But there are more elegant solutions to the problem in my eyes.
Check out Loop Habit Tracker. It has a great widget, material interface, etc. The thing I like best is its percent system. Keep going to keep it at 100%, or if you break then try and get it back up to 100%.
Or IF by IFTTT which with a recipe pulls wallpapers from /r/wallpaper (or your choice of sub reddit for that matter).
Edit: The recipe - Set my Android wallpaper to the best posts in /r/wallpapers.
ES is another sketchy one IMO. ES creates a hidden log in a baidu folder that is sent to a chinese server without your permission.
i've been using solid explorer for years, and it only gotten better over time. The recent build is a perfect material UX IMO. lot's of great plug ins for chromecast, cloud management, etc... handles network storage and USB drives, really polished package.
Loop Habit Tracker
I've tried loads and this simple one is my absolute favourite. It doesn't stuff any features behind a pay wall, has a decent widget set and has backups.
I'd actually be very happy to have paid for this one.
Loop habit tracker
Daylio - daily journal and mood tracker
Both are simple, free, and very well made apps that don't do any annoying things like so many apps do. Highly recommend both.
As someone who had to leave home at 17 as a result of my abusive NMom and had to speak to CPS (they didn't do anything because I was 2 months from turning 18 and the rep I spoke to waa super clear that they were just following protocol to interview me and that it would take longer than those two months to even get my case reviewed), I recommend you look up if your state is a "one-party consent" state. That means that you don't need the second party's (your mother's) consent to use a recording of her in a court of law. If you suspect your mom is about to say anything damning, I advise you turn the recording app on your phone (or download a free one if your phone doesn't have it) and put the phone in your pocket to capture what she's saying.
I'm not sure how much it will help, but if she says anything explicitly illegal or proving that she's a danger to your health, I'd like to think they'll be more inclined to take action. Be sure to email copies of those things to yourself and back them up multiple places like you are with your images. I'm not sure if it's also on iPhone, but you can use the ACR Phone Call Recording App to record your phone calls automatically. They're saved to the cloud and can be downloaded directly. Helped me so much in a recently legal case; People love to not think when they're speaking on the phone...
All in all, as someone who has been through it, it will be okay. I can already tell you're an extremely resourceful person seeking help online and making a plan. Please, please be safe and keep us updated.
Join has been great for me. It isn't quite as easy to set up as Pushbullet, and the UI isn't as nice (in my opinion) but once things are configured, it works practically just as well. I love it and have been using it for a couple years now. I use it primarily for responding to SMS messages on my PC via the Chrome extension. It's a one-time purchase, no subscription fees.
