Scelta makes losing weight a game by having you achieve goals to earn points and compete in Game Center leaderboards. Set your weight loss goal for the week and get to work. Scelta requires you to record your weight on a daily basis, but it really focuses on weekly averages in order to provide a realistic view of your progress. If you achieve your weekly goal you’ll be rewarded with SP points, which are used to level up your character and advance your weight loss adventure. Scelta also includes HealthKit integration, weekly graphs, and the ability to hear and feel your weight.

You want this year to be different. Scelta will help you stick to your goals.

Why we picked this?

Better Habits helps you take the steps to better your life. Start off by creating a list of things that you’d like to start doing, stop doing, or get better at. Each entry can include a difficulty level, time to complete, and reminder. Then whenever you perform the habit, simply tap the rep button to make progress towards forming it. If you fail to perform the habit, however, you’ll lose portions of your progress. Once a habit’s rep meter has been filled, you can choose to continue on a higher difficulty level or simply consider it formed.

You want to be a better version of yourself. It’s not just a static page filled with goals. It’s a live update on your personal progress.

You're not fond of subscriptions. Premium features are only available via a monthly plan.
