I would like some kind of fanfare when completing a task. In Dr BJ Fogg's book on Tiny Habits he talks about the importance of celebration when building a new habit, as the shot of dopamine strengthens the connections between the neurons responsible for the behaviour just performed. I believe this tiny amount of gamification in your app will be a very welcome addition. I have been using it to run my life for years, and I already get a kick out of completing the tasks, I am sure I am not alone, anything you could do to strengthen that feeling would make people enjoy using the app even more. Further examples of how products are sold through habit formation are also available in Charles Duhig's The Power of Habit, so from what I have learned, it would benefit your bottom line.
