Potential Release Notes 2.6.5
New Today screen, Fallbacks, Advanced Integrations, and more
I hope your intentions for the new year are going well. If not, we're here to help. As James Clear said;
“You don't rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems.”
Potential is designed to help you build that system. We've just released our biggest update yet, and it's full of good stuff to help you build better habits. Let's dive right in!
Redesigned Today Screen
The new today screen is much cleaner and more powerful. Tap the integration to open, swipe right to complete, swipe left to skip or trigger the fallback… Fallbacks?
Just about everyone in the habits space talks about tiny, atomic, or 1 minute habits.
And it does make sense to make a behavior as small and easy as possible. On the other hand, sometimes it just doesn't feel challenging enough.
Thus: Fallbacks! If you have a fallback for an intention, you can't skip it, but replace it with the tiny version instead.
That way you can aim for the real thing but still "keep the habit alive" and make a vote for the kind of person you want to be — even when life gets in the way.
🛌 Wake-up & Bedtime Auto-Complete
You can now automatically track and complete these intentions based on the time when you wake up or go to bed. To turn it on, go to Edit Intention > Auto-complete> Apple Health > Wake-Up Time. (For now, this only works on iOS.)
🇪🇦 🇵🇹 🇯🇵 Duolingo Auto-Complete
Auto-complete your intentions based on your XP progress in Duolingo. Works like magic. Tenha um bom dia!
💍 💤 Oura Auto-Complete
We're big fans of Oura, arguably the best sleep tracker out there. You can now connect your Oura account and choose a sleep, readiness, or activity score as a condition for automatically completing your intentions.
Waking Up Course Integration
Choose a theory or practice series and jump right into your next lesson! I’ve always wanted to go through the series, but without a sense of progress it’s easy to get lost. We fixed this for you. May your mind be at peace.
‘My Courses’ Integration
Similar to the Waking Up courses, but you can add your own. Just add a title, and a name and link for each step. This is great for making your own little courses with Podcasts, videos, blogposts etc.
Play Daily Blink Integration
The free daily Blinks on Blinkist are perfect for learning key ideas from one of 5,000 books in just 15 minutes. This integration let’s you jump right in.
