Frequenty asked Quizzicals
Daemon vs Demon ?
Daemon is pronounced the same as demon; that is where the similarity ends.
Demon = An evil being.
Daemon = A familiar, embodying your true calling.
Is the App free, how do you make money?
We have a fair and transparent system:
New users can track up to 7 habits for free.
Committed users can buy features, which enables us to continue development.
No premium version.
Basically, we fund development through In App Purchases, some to extend functionality, like adding more habits; most are cosmetic, like customising your Daemon.
You can certainly evaluate it for free before spending any money.

Is it only on iOS? Will it be available on other platforms?
Early on, we made a decision, to make our Apps exclusively for iOS.
Our reasoning is to take full advantage of the integrated iOS features to deliver a highly optimised product.
We really like the Apple ecosystem. It integrates software and hardware in ways that make it hyper-efficient and secure. For example we take advantage of iCloud for storage of user-data as it is extremely reliable and we don’t need to store users details on a separate server. Apple design standards ensure a pleasant user experience.
As a small distributed company, maintaining Habit Daemon on different platforms would invariably lead to compromises in quality and slower delivery of updates.
In short, we would rather do one thing well than chase a larger market share.
