All-in-One

Goalie combines features from to-do apps, reminder apps, and goal achieving apps and puts them all in one place. Goalie will remind and track your progress on your way to develop those habits you’ve always wanted. It will also help you cruise through those items on your to-do list.

Repeatable Reminders

Goalie’s built-in reminders uses the device’s notifications center so you’ll never forget a thing. Set unlimited reminders easily for any day of the week with the quick add or custom time menus. Being reminded to do something has never been so fast!

After Jack got Goalie, he has never missed fetching a pail of water. I love how I can see all my goals on one screen. It motivates me to keep going. — Jill

App Store

The Goalie Story

I found it very frustrating to use the habit/goal tracker apps from the app store. The main reason was they didn’t remind me to do the goal or habit I was working on at specific times. They would mainly just remind me to enter in information once a day and by the time it finally reminded me, it was already too late to do the task.

Goalie makes it easy to set multiple reminders for goals or tasks on the specific day of week and time you want. The reminders repeat forever, or until you complete the task. For example, I have it remind me to make my bed at 8:30 am, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and at 7:50 am Tuesday and Thursday.

Another frustration with to-do and task apps is that you cannot have them repeat on a daily basis. Goalie allows for tasks to repeat daily, and plans to have goals repeat on specific days. That way your tasks for the day are there every week, when you need them.

Goalie allows for progress of ALL your goals to been seen at once. With the touch of one button you can see how you are doing on your goals from week to week. Goalie also allows for a “Goal amount” to be set. So if my goal was to meet two new people, I could set my goal as two. Then my goal would not be marked as completed until I had recorded it twice.

Smokin’ Guns Banks: Santa Fe Express

Occasionally my family plays Smokin’ Guns. This series of posts helps new players find the banks.

Smokin’ Guns Bank Robbery Mode

In the bank robbery mode you either rob one of the safes of the money, by using the provided dynamite, or you have to defend them. Another way to win, that pays less money, is to kill all of the opposing players. If the robbing team wins the round, then the two teams swap sides, which means the outlaws take a turn defending the bank.

Bank Location: Railcar

Proceed along to the train to the First National Bank of El Paso Railcar. The safe is on the upper level. So far I have only found one safe.

Bank Location: Graveyard

You stole from the sheriff, pilfered church monies, and now you want to rob the dead! Cowboy, you are getting so low, hell is going to be above you.

See the church? The money is not in the building but in the graveyard. Blow the large grave to kingdom come and the money is revealed.

Across from the bank is the hotel. Standing in the entrance, to your right is the receptionist’s counter which you jump over and go through the door. Descend to the basement via the handy ladder. Blow the crate open to obtain the money bag.
