Looking for iphone apps that help change behavior

I'm looking for an app for my Ipod Touch that replicates the function of the Motivaider, a portable, repeating, vibrating alarm that reminds you to do stuff like sit up straight, take a calming breath, or whatever.

People who repeat themselves

I know a few people who repeat themselves quite often in conversation. They are doing me no explicit harm, yet I get impatient & sometimes a bit angry. In an effort to be more relaxed about such behavior, I'd like to know more about what drives people to be repetitive, and why it might strike a nerve with recipients such as myself. [more inside]
