Habits UI changes.

Just a short note about recent update (v. It adds changes to UI, basically, to the menu and partially to navigation parts. We are integrating what is called an 'ActionBar' pattern in the Android UI and a a Sliding Menu.

ActionBar is a bar at the top of the application screens where you find your most often used actions (previously, menu items) for that screen.

Sliding Menu (in android docs called 'Navigation Bar', I think) is a open-by-swipe left or right menu. It usually contains main navigation points of the app.

We want to move main buttons like 'My Mission', 'My Influence', 'My Roles', etc from the current home screen to the left-sliding menu (the Navigation Bar) and  make the FTF page appear first when you open the app.


  1. Yes! I love this Idea! That'd give it a very modern feel (since modern means updated within the last 6 months, these days :P ya know) That's the scheme used in the newer Google apps on android, and a few others. Making the First Things First the First Thing you see seems highly appropriate. I'm a big fan of this app.

  2. Love the UI update over the last few months, this is a great app. I'd still love to see the sliding menu implemented if possible. Maybe you could do the main menu page AND the sliding menu for a while to soften the transition? That would avoid making people feel like "who moved my cheese? " then change to the FTF page start a little later on. that'd divide up the coding too, into more manageable milestones. Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi James,
      Do you mean to make the FTF page main? and move all other things to the Sliding menu at the left? We have the menu now on the main page.
