To-do applications are literally a dime a dozen in today’s App Store. Most adequately cover the basics: task creation, setting some sort of deadline or other way to prioritize items, and finally task completion.

Some are advertised towards hardcore users, while some are billed as simple running lists of tasks that need to be completed.

If you're finding it difficult to keep your momentum up and need some help, Counter app Last Time gives you a new beginning each time you check in. Keeping track of how long it’s been since you last did a thing, and that thing can be anything, Last Time counts your days and weeks. What it won’t do is tell you how many times you’ve reached your goal or missed your goal. It’s a fresh start everyday.
