Features

  • Many-times habits now support goals. Previously, Lunatask considered many-times habits complete when there was a single activity tracked. This is now fixed and you can set the goal so the app won’t consider the habit as complete until the specified number of activities has been tracked in the period.
  • Many-times habits now support scheduling. You can now set multiple times of day on many-times habits, so the habit shows up in the calendar every day at set times and you get a notification for each occurrence.
  • The template new journal entries are initialized with can now be customized. In the template, you can ask yourself questions you’d like to answer in each entry or remind yourself of things not to forget to enter into your journal.

Improvements

  • When a task is scheduled for some future date, all time blocks for this task for the rest of the day are removed from the calendar

Also, the menu badge will not count in the habit until the specified time has passed as the habit is not actionable until that time.
  • The first link found in task descriptions is now extracted and a button to quickly visit the link is shown on the task itself in the list. The link extraction can be disabled in settings.
