too expensive for some convenience
Wish more features were free
by Jessabelle on 2019/10/19 16:47
I love the look of this app, and it has awesome potential. However, I wish more basic features were free. Such as adding a time to a task. I understand that apps want subscribers for ongoing development, but I feel like what’s offered in the “free” version of this app makes it fairly useless and less superior than many other apps that offer the same thing. Will check back in the future to see if anything has changed.
Works well. Good ideas
by TaylorPlayer on 2019/10/19 15:55
Nice app. I like the options for setting time of day and repetitions. Best way I have found to create good habits.
App is truly amazing

Great app. Worth the money
by earthling2000 on 2019/10/18 19:17
I love how this app turns task completion into a game and gives it a sense of accomplishment and achievement. I have become so addicted that I complete task bu virtue of just by putting it in the app.
App is nice, intrusive ads to upgrade is annoying
by NYC Neurotic on 2019/10/18 14:07
Intuitive interface makes using this app a breeze. I am just trying out the free version which allows tracking of 3 habits only, which is fine. How many habits can you successfully build at a time anyway? But the main complaint is the obnoxious and persistent intrusions of ads, influencing you to upgrade to their paid subscription version. That’s just rude. Turns the experience of using the app into a negative one. Too bad.
Organized
by TheCuteDayDreamer on 2019/10/18 13:33
I don't typically write reviews...like ever. But this app, even though I am only able to use what is left of the free trial (since I cannot afford the app itself) I can say it is the best habit app I've ever gotten. It is very organized and easy to use, and the customizeable icons and colors make it pleasing to the eye. This app is amazing! I will come back soon when I have the money!
Honest Opinion
by pleaseseepolicenowwwwwwwwwwwww on 2019/10/18 11:56
Hi my name is Chris, honestly this app is really helping me achieve my goals. Without the reminders from the app I wouldn’t be where I am at now.

Trap of an app
by Nextiteration on 2019/10/17 01:56
I downloaded the app and deleted within an hour of messing around with the limited free trial functions. To my surprise, a week later I was charged for an entire year of the premium subscription. The developer is clearly taking advantage of fine-print subscription terms and people who value their time (might be this apps exact target audience...coincidence? I don’t think so). If you fall for this “trap of an app” by making both the mistake of initially downloading it and forgetting to unsubscribe from automatic renewals before deleting, you will need to request a refund from Apple Support as developers don’t have control over account payments - how convenient for them. My request for a refund was denied immediately despite going to support the day of the charge. I also submitted an accidental subscription renewal, and have yet to hear back or see my money returned. Until I do, or if I don’t, I won’t be using and/or trialing apps from this developer moving forward.

useless app ever. nothing special about it. Tried trial, next thing i know i paid for the whole year. can’t even get your money back.
Great Tool
by taylinr on 2019/10/15 03:27
This app has helped me, far more than any other on the App Store, to take control of my life. It has been especially useful in creating a healthy lifestyle, and to conquer depressive habits I had never been able to. The accountability the app brings is one that is lacking in pressure. If you end up not being able to complete a habit, you don’t get negative feedback. Most habit forming apps on the App Store have negative feedback when you are unable to meet your goals, which can become quickly frustrating and cause more self-criticism. Other apps on the market will send an obnoxious amount of reminders, that eventually become easy to ignore. Rather the app uses as many, or as little, reminders as you want. You can choose which days of the week and what time of day the habits need completed by. With the Premium feature, you are able to create as many habits as you want and gain access to more fun settings. For me, the amount I paid for the yearly subscription was worth it for the changes I have seen in my life. The only problems I have found is in the weekly section. You don’t get the option of choosing the day of the week for habits in the weekly tab. I have a plant I water every two weeks, always on Saturday’s, but there is currently no way to specify this option. Because I can find no other problems, and because of the personal help this app has provided, I am giving it 5 stars.
Great app
by Averi M on 2019/10/13 23:59
This app is great for keeping track of your habits and I have a bad habit of biting my nails so if you check off every day on the app it will probably stop you from doing your bad habit.
Improved my state of being

All this app really wants I was only able to create five habits. I have to buy a subscription to add more. What a waste of my time.

It is not a free app

With this app you have a week free then you have to pay.
Good app

Great organizer for those setting goals or wanting to creat positive lifestyle changes
by aschex on 2019/10/11 13:46
When creating a calendar for goals and good habits I didn’t really have an idea what software or app I was going to use. Thankfully I found this app which has an intuitive format with clean graphics that are pleasing to the eye. $30 for the year isn’t terrible but there are plenty of free alternatives especially is you already have Microsoft excel. I also wish there was an ability to write down notes or a journal entry for each day on the calendar. Aside from that and the price point this is a great app for those looking to become more aware of their habits or wanting to set goals!

Honestly, productivity has done so much for me! It keeps me on track to do the things I have to do and the things I want to do. Really love it.
Pretty good!
by marvelislife30 on 2019/10/11 01:27
This is a good productivity app! I would rate it 5 stars but it’s a little annoying how you have to pay so much for timed reminders, and you can only have limited reminders before it asks you to pay. I don’t love this app, but it’s still pretty good, it works well. I recommend it.
Want to focuse on your tasks? Get this app
by Vic1D❤️❤️❤️ on 2019/10/11 00:53
Awesome
Reminders popping up at wrong time, etc.
by Zero-G on 2019/10/10 23:47
Love the basics of this app, but strangely the reminders pop up at a time other than I’ve designated. My phone is set for my time zone (of course), so I would think the app reminder times would reflect that? Also..when setting reminder times, it is based on ‘military time’. Is there any way to change that? Lastly, the app is not calculating my streaks correctly even though I mark each day’s as ‘done’. One day the streak will be one number then the next day it is a lower streak number, even though all that day’s habits were completed. Developer: Any feedback on these issues?
Best app ever!
by trobbins26 on 2019/10/10 21:43
This app is the best. It helps me get stuff done and is extremely intuitive and flexible to use. My day is way less stressful now!
Just the app I needed
by Jake Durkin on 2019/10/10 14:02
This app has really helped me get back in my rhythm. It’s mind blowing how much time you realize you waste in everyday when you plan every hour and or start prioritizing like this.
Having to pay $20 a month with out being signed up for it.
by stacy watts on 2019/10/10 07:29
I deleted the app before being able to access the premium feature. But I get charged $20 a month and there is no way to cancel it and it says I have to continue if paying for over a year. Very mad.
Love this app but..
by Bwalz177 on 2019/10/10 06:15
I love this app. I have been using it for over 4 years now. The only thing that I don’t like is having to pay for it now, so unfortunately I’m going to have to delete this app and find a new one.
I’m trapped in your app and I can’t get rid of

Not free
by luis1248 on 2019/10/09 14:29
Try free for one week then auto subscribes for a year, or you can change it to a monthly basis. Why is everything a subscription???
Only 5 habits with free version
by Whitbeck on 2019/10/09 00:52
You can only set 5 habits with the free version and you don’t get to set reminders at a certain time or location, and do not get to access the statistics. The app also repeatedly pesters you into upgrading.
Too pricey for basic features
by rm0328 on 2019/10/08 22:53
I do not think this app is worth $30. I signed up for the free trial and was anticipating at most a charge for $6.99 to try premium for a month. It charged me $30 and I cannot unsubscribe for the remaining 11 months. It’s beyond silly that I paid for an app to send me reminders every couple hours. Google play has so many great free apps with the exact same features as this one. It’s not worth paying for.
Great app

No thanks

Boring, annoying app
Now only 3 habits for free. Down from 5.
by Cmribold on 2019/10/08 00:53
So I don’t normally write reviews but I thought I would mention something about this app because of how unusable it is in the free version. I see a review from Jun 24th of this year that complains that you could only make 5 free habits in the free version of this app. Apparently in the months since then this company thought that was too generous and have now lowered that to 3 habits total. While they can totally do that within their rights, everything about this app screams money hungry. Going from 5 to 3 habits is one. The other is that they deceptively try and sign you up for a subscription by saying that it’s free. They also prompt you to subscribe every 3-4 screens. They also limited LIGHT MODE to a paid feature. Are you serious? I’m an iOS developer and I know exactly how little effort it takes to build light mode and dark mode into an app. The design is nice but the features are not worth nearly what they’re asking for it. Eventually they will make it so that you can open this app make 1 goal and then they’ll only show you the subscription screen. They would be so much better off if they just charged once to everyone for a lite version of the app (say 10 habits) and then premium subscribers get unlimited habits. This is not a $15 per year app (the 50% discount they offer everyone). Please do yourselves a favor and don’t try and nickel and dime your users. It’s just super distasteful and makes people upset. I understand that subscriptions are a much more stable business model and that they’re the way that Apple is suggesting apps go. I also understand that the work that has gone into making this app look and feel clean and crisp is harder than some may assume. It’s difficult to design simply. Unfortunately this app doesn’t get to shine like it could because of the business decisions for marketing it.
A great way to track some new habits

by xWB18x on 2019/10/07 19:19
Great App, keeps me on track. I recommend Productive because you can track progress and keep a steady schedule.
Great App but crashes
by Minnesota Bull Moose on 2019/10/07 18:37
I love this app. I’ve had it for 4 years. The updates have been great and the progression of improvements always make the experience better. The app is very open to your own means and can help you meet your goals. However as of late it has crashed multiple times during normal use. This have been going on for a week. Which is why right now I give it 4 of 5. Fix the crashes and you’ll get 5 of 5 from me.
Amazing!!

Great app for focusing
by K. Bourne on 2019/10/07 16:52
I am constantly finding myself going over my to do lists in my head. This app is great for tracking everything I need to get done to be healthier and happier, so I don’t have to stress about it as much. Once I got the hang of it, I love it! Thank you for the much needed help to clear out the worry cluttering my mind. There is now an app for that! 🤪
Great app!

Very easy to use, great design, definitely helping me stick with my habits!!
Happy Customer
by Girl power 2012 on 2019/10/07 11:32
I love this app. It helps motivate me to finish things I don’t feel like doing. I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when I do complete a habit.
Alright
by hailsap on 2019/10/07 11:05
Not too useful. Kinda just like an uptakes version of the phone calandre I guess. You should still get it tho. But it’s a subscription $15 a year.
Helps establish new routines
by hdriggs on 2019/10/07 06:30
This app is very helpful with establishing and tracking new routines. I enjoy the color scheme, and the ease of swiping a task right or left to indicate if it has been completed or skipped for good reason (such as being out of town). I included some basic things that I’m already good at doing (taking vitamins and medication every day) so that I will always have something to mark as completed, in order to give me momentum, and to stack my habits. From what I can tell, the highest frequency you can track is 3 times a day. If you want to track number of ounces of water you drank, or how many times you did something else, I don’t see a way to do that. The Tally app would be better for that. Also, I like the any.do app for tracking and scheduling one-time tasks, including projects with multiple subtasks. For making and tracking big goals, Strides might be the app for you. Having recently entered a new phase of life, this app, Productive, is my app of choice for creating and tracking good habits and routines.
What?
by pikachubabydoll on 2019/10/07 05:01
I just downloaded the app and became excited by the amazing design and sleek set up of it in general, but as soon as I deleted the “beginning trial habit” and tried to add another it immediately would send me to the promo for the full version saying I’ve “reached the habit limit” How upsetting! I couldn’t even try out 2 habits before being told to pay for premium immediately, definitely not worth the money if I can’t even view what I would get with it!! :(
Did not order this and company won’t respond to my cancelation request

Stress reliever
by jax0716 on 2019/10/06 23:50
I feel less stress and anxiety when I can reflect on my to do list. Also using this to map out my workout routine. I love the dark theme because it’s easy in the eyes when you want to make a to do list for tomorrow and it’s late at night and you’ve already turned the lights out.
Perfect
by rogerw on 2019/10/06 13:07

Expensive, but helpful!
by Bigd89 on 2019/10/06 03:34
A good app, it has really helped me getting organized. I’m having a hard time justifying the price tag though...
Why subscription and not one time fee?
by Hshuahahwioqgsv on 2019/10/05 20:35
It’s pretty ridiculous to have to pay a subscription for a simple reminders app. It would be great for a one time fee but the greedy developers want to charge recurring like they’re providing me with a service or something. It’s a productivity app and you make it unproductive to require a recurring subscription to add more tasks to a list...
Sub goals checklist
by rockero241 on 2019/10/05 14:03
Not bad at all, but it could be a lot better if you were to add a sub-check list to your current things, it would open the possibility to adding small projects and sub check lists to completing those projects. This app could easily replace other apps such as Things, with a better layout and user interface.
AMAZING APP

Canceling

If you decide not use this app it is impossible to cancel.
Subscription
by Ryoyster on 2019/10/03 14:37
I got this app and did the 7 day free trial. I was a day late with canceling the subscription and charged the yearly premium. I thought I would at least be credited back most of the yearly premium since it was one day. No refund whatsoever
Subscription overload
by Xancett on 2019/10/03 12:41
Got 3 pop ups telling me to subscribe by the time I finished the intro on how to use the app. Way overkill and clearly the app is meant to only be used if you subscribe.
Perfect for Mom Brain!
by Arid92 on 2019/10/03 09:42
This app is a game changer for me! Being a stay-home mom of 4 kids under 5 I have so much to keep track of and keep up on during a day and I can no longer depend on just my memory to remember all of it and when or if I did something already. I also am a person who loves lists and checking them off. This app is exactly the way I would have designed it for myself. It is so fun and very user-friendly. Premium is worth the money to me!
Terrible app

So helpful!
by Linzey:) on 2019/10/02 15:33
I schedule my whole day with this app. It helped me get out of low point in my life where I spent the day doing nothing. I added a new habit everyday and now I am on the right track with my life. I’m getting work done, I’m pursuing my hobbies and staying on task while still having time to relax. The app is nice to look at too. I love it!
Too many ads
by BostonB on 2019/10/02 13:13
You gotta be joking giving this app 5 stars. Yes it’s slick and easy to navigate. But you can only have 3 habits before being asked to fork $30 to just keep track of a task?! Thanks but no thanks
Excellent UI/UX
by yosh_c on 2019/10/01 22:21

Can’t cancel trial in App
by Ryan Ox on 2019/10/01 17:28
I decided to try the free 7 day trial...there was no way to cancel the trial within the app and they charged me $33 without my permission upon the trial ending. I can keep track of my own lists and goals without these annoying notifications. This is a scam.
Very useful
by Almodovarrrr on 2019/10/01 13:43
Helps me remember to complete those important tasks. Or even just remember to take supplements every day (sometimes I forget if I’ve taken them even when I have). Love it.
Wow! Super Effective!
by AdventureKiki on 2019/10/01 05:41
This app is so user friendly, provides tips and tricks to make getting started easy and is super effective for creating habits. It feels so great to check something off for the day and the feedback and rewards keep you on track! I’m in love with it already and can’t wait to see how many habits I stick to in a few months!

Have used it off and on for years. Anytime I need to have a refresher in getting good habits back I open it up.
Not user friendly
by RLRod on 2019/09/30 02:24
I want to get in the habit of using this daily but since I haven’t gotten in the habit, I forget how to check off things I’ve done. I’m sure it will be better when I faithfully use it and don’t have to spend 20min trying to figure it out.
Encouraging!

by cori........... on 2019/09/29 22:58
I’d love to see a better reporting/note taking system that connects your inputs (actions) to your results (mood, weight, gratitude). But what the app does it does very well!!!
Confusing
by ckaav on 2019/09/29 22:23
I want to like this app, but, I hate it because it is too fancy and manicured that I don’t take it seriously. I have the premium too. Waste
Reminder
by AliGuzeloglu on 2019/09/29 19:59
I love how this app reminds me of what I should do every day after school
Free is basically useless :(
by Javi m1 on 2019/09/28 15:36
The free version is so limited it is basically useless. Most apps provide a functional product, this fails to do that.
Awful
by ratio805 on 2019/09/28 00:27
Bombarded with subscription purchase ads before even being able to try it out. Overly complicated interface for a simple idea. Ridiculously over priced subscription for what’s offered.
Love it
by sage james on 2019/09/28 00:14
Yes
This is super helpful I love it
by big big peeper on 2019/09/27 20:30
It’s a great app it’s easy to use and I’ve been staying really productive lately it’s been a great help
Great Tool
by taylinr on 2019/10/15 03:27
This app has helped me, far more than any other on the App Store, to take control of my life. It has been especially useful in creating a healthy lifestyle, and to conquer depressive habits I had never been able to. The accountability the app brings is one that is lacking in pressure. If you end up not being able to complete a habit, you don’t get negative feedback. Most habit forming apps on the App Store have negative feedback when you are unable to meet your goals, which can become quickly frustrating and cause more self-criticism. Other apps on the market will send an obnoxious amount of reminders, that eventually become easy to ignore. Rather the app uses as many, or as little, reminders as you want. You can choose which days of the week and what time of day the habits need completed by. With the Premium feature, you are able to create as many habits as you want and gain access to more fun settings. For me, the amount I paid for the yearly subscription was worth it for the changes I have seen in my life. The only problems I have found is in the weekly section. You don’t get the option of choosing the day of the week for habits in the weekly tab. I have a plant I water every two weeks, always on Saturday’s, but there is currently no way to specify this option. Because I can find no other problems, and because of the personal help this app has provided, I am giving it 5 stars.
Great app!
by CheekySweetie on 2018/03/08 17:51
I'm 16 and I got this app to keep track of chores and other daily habits I often forget. It's exactly what I needed. I'm not trying to schedule my day down to the minute or even the hour. And I needed an app flexible enough that as long as I complete my habit that day, it doesn't break my streak, but still keeping certain habits to certain times of day. I like that you can schedule an individual habit for multiple times a day instead of having to create the same habit 3 times, each time scheduling a different time. I also enjoy how customizable it is, how you can choose the icon, color and order of the habits. My favorite thing about the app is the general scheduling. There are 3 times to schedule a habit to; morning, afternoon and evening. And you can choose between which times each of these apply. Even if I miss a habit during its schedules time, it isn't counted as missed until the day is over, which keeps my motivation for the streaks up. It's the perfect level of simplicity for me. My only complaint is that I have to pay a subscription for more habits! I don't really care about whatever else comes with premium. I love this app and it's exactly what I need but I can't pay a subscription. If it was a one-time fee for premium forever then I could do that. Even if it was $20 as long as it was just once. Otherwise, this app is just about perfect for me.
My Main App
by riddled1103 on 2018/05/31 16:55
I have paranoid schizophrenia, and having a stable routine along with medication and therapy is essential to my recovery. This is hands down the best app for creating and maintaining a daily self care routine. Being schizophrenic it is hard to stick with a routine. I am always forgetting what I need to be doing. Not anymore with this app. I use this app to remind me of the things I need to do each day. For projects I use Things 3, for one time reminders I use the standard reminders app, and for appointments I use the basic calendar. I keep these four apps in a folder called Daily. If I see a number over the folder, I know that something needs to be done. What I like most about this app is nothing has a time that is set in stone. There are three periods: morning, afternoon, and evening. This gives me needed flexibility, in case I am having a bad day. Also these periods keep me from becoming overwhelmed by looking at a whole days worth of tasks. (Although you can look at the full day if you need to). There is also a satisfying sound when you swipe a task complete. This app has worked wonders in my day to day life living with schizophrenia. If you don’t have a serious mental illness this app will still be extremely handy. If you do have a serious mental illness it is a necessity.
Helpful but some features are confusing and buggy
by Jen1018 on 2019/09/21 16:20
Wish I could give 3.5 stars. Paid for premium back when it was a flat fee, and it was worth it. Really helped me cope with ADHD. But I don’t think it’s worth the subscription price. The monthly habits system is basically useless. It gives you a 2-4 day window in either the beginning, middle, or end of the month to complete it before it disappears from the list and counts it as missed, and you can’t pick what those days are. If you chose the whole month, instead of beginning middle or end, it still does a 2 day window at the beginning of the month (It’s the 1st of the month right now, and my monthly habits all popped up as due by the 3rd). Looking at my calendar and deciding it makes more sense to do most of those chores next week for a variety of reasons, so now I’m swiping those as done even though they’re not done yet, which defeats the purpose. If it were at least a 1 week window, or we could pick the timing, that would really help to provide flexibility. I’ve reported this to the developers multiple times over the last few years and I always get a canned response that they’ll think about adding this feature... as opposed to fixing this broken feature... or even explaining why it works this way. Developers response to this review is to a separate issue I reported that still isn’t resolved. They still haven’t said anything about the monthly habits issue.
Very Helpful and Encouraging
by Katierae5 on 2019/01/03 05:19
I don't often take time to write reviews, but I am sincerely enjoying this help! It has been so helpful and easy to use. I love how easy to customize this, and if you miss or skip a goal for whatever reason its not degrading. Rather it encourages you to keep going, and do what you can to succeed with whatever size goal/task/daily chore/project/new habit you recorded. I have tried other apps similar before and have been very disappointed, and then ended up losing interest and feeling more defeated by not getting something done. If you are a personality where you need to record your tasks or enjoy the satisfaction of crossing something else off from your day this is for you! I will admit that in the free version I only had the ability to record 2 goals/habits, which was not close to what I was hoping for. The company offered a timed promotion that Im not sure if it was only over the holiday or just as a new user I got a chance to upgrade too. However, I decided to give it a shot as it was only $12 for the full year which was easily affordable and I am really loving the fact I did. I highly recommend!
Does not work between devices
by LDS14LDS on 2019/09/02 12:39
I have been using this app for a year now. Here’s what I think. The app under the same login and account look totally different on my iPhone and iPad. Tracking is off and it does not let you fix. Although I am competing with my self as far as doing task daily I think I should not have to worry about checking off task on each device or adding each habit to each device. I do not remember seeing anything that said adding or checking off habits should be done on one or another device for the app to sync. For instance I am starting over on one task on one device and sitting at 50 on my other device. I sync one device and according to the app it synced on my other device. The problem is it did not, some of the habits are still different. I do like the app but wish that everything would sync and regardless of which device I complete the task on or add task too that it syncs with other device. I have sent emails to the app designer from the beginning with no resolution. I was told that it would be addressed in an update several months ago. If anyone knows how to fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated as I really do like app and it has been useful for me. I do have the full subscription and would give the app a 5 if this issue could be resolved.
Awesome!
by Sarah B29 on 2019/01/12 04:11
I love this app for tracking habits. The premium version is well worth the price, especially if you consider the cost per month of the annual option. I’ve been trying to start a bullet journal, but have struggled with motivating myself to go through and physically set up the format myself to track each habit, with this app it does all the work for me and has a nice design. I wish there was a little bit more flexibility with scheduling monthly habits, like if you could pick an exact day of the month when something needs to be done, or the number of times per month you’d want to do something, similar to the layout when setting weekly goals. Another feature I’d like to see is the ability to “overachieve” on a goal. Like if I set my gym goal as a minimum of 3 times a week, it would be nice to be able to mark it done if I go a fourth time in order to track progress and help reevaluate goals later on. I’d especially like it if this was a feature able to be turned on or off depending on each habit. Overall this is a great and easy to use app that helps me stay motivated and productive.
Confession of an Appaholic
by Anyabells on 2019/05/01 13:48
When I see a new and interesting app I can’t help myself- I download and try it. Every few weeks I find myself trying a new “productivity” app, whether it be a to-do or habit tracking or what have you. But this is the app I always find myself coming back to ever since I first downloaded it about six years ago. No other app has been as easy to set up, enjoyable to use, or useful. And every time I come back to it there are more features! Useful features, too, not ones that make things more difficult or overwhelming: they integrate smoothly into what is already there. The only reason I ever stop using this app is because I am so bad at sticking to a routine. But when I put forward the effort, this is the only app I have found that actively encourages me. Just the idea of using it is enough to help me recommit :) And I have never regretted buying the full version, which is not the case with so many other apps. Give it a try and you’ll understand why the ratings are so consistently good.
Quite a good app
by 17374850483761919384649 on 2018/06/19 01:53
I especially appreciate this app, since the calendar it has tracks when you do things and when you don’t do things. This gives you a satisfying cross-off of the days of the week you do the things you planned, making you feel compelled to keep up the task instead of putting it off another day. That being said, all of the features (in the free version at least) besides reminders can be done using a regular calendar, which would give you an even more satisfying cross-off since it is being done physically. However, I would still recommend this app, for people who are still struggling with procrastination, since it isn’t the laziness but rather the will, and personally the will has kept me going with this app. The only downside is that I think the not free version is quite a bit expensive, especially for a mere habit tracking app, and especially considering that all of the features it has and offers in the paid version could be done with other apps that are free (like apps that come with an iPhone). Nevertheless, this is still an amazing app and it has helped me with habit tracking.
Works well, but...
by Imperialmeasures on 2019/06/24 05:04
I like how this app is set up and what you can do with it. It is really good for keeping track of the things that I need to do. However, it is clear to me that this app really isn’t free. In the free version, you can set 5 habits, which doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what I need to keep track of on a daily basis. maybe of all i wanted to do was remind myself to go to the gym every day, it would be usable, but then you could just use one of the free apps that comes on the iphone. I understand that the developers want to make money, but the subscription pricing model is a big turn-off for be and i assume based on other reviews many other people. The price is really not that expensive, but personally i would rather have ads than have to pay $30 a year for an app that really does not do anything particularly interesting or unique. It’s nice to have, but for me, it’s not worth having to pay a per year price indefinitely when i could do exactly the same things, mind you less conveniently, with a free service like google calendar. So maybe if this app had a one time payment or ads i would use it, but currently, i am not prepared to spend 30 dollars a year so that i can be reminded to go to the gym.
New Update Made This App Perfect
by Chronological Annoyed on 2019/09/03 21:01
New Review September 2019: Thank you times 1 million for updating the app so I can check off the previous day. I use this app basically every day & this update has made it so much more enjoyable. If I completed a habit, but forgot to say that I did on this app, I’m able to still go back to yesterday & change it to done. I’ve already used this feature numerous times because I don’t remember to check all of my habits off every day. Thank you for listening! Sincerely, loyal app user. Old Review June 2019: Hi Productive is a great app that I use every day, besides the fact that I can’t check off the previous day. There are so many times when I forget to check stuff from the previous day. It then ends my streak, logs my habits incorrectly because I really did it, and I can’t do anything about it. Please change this Productive App!!! It’s not like I’m going to go back and check of yesterday if I didn’t do it. Sincerely, loyal app user.
Limitations and constant subscription badgering make this too annoying
by hja91 on 2019/09/14 06:40
I liked the idea and aesthetic of this app. Unfortunately the paywall and its limitations makes it not worth downloading. The help section states that you can add notes onto completed tasks from previous days but you actually can’t. It would make sense that if you clicked on a task then clicked the notes section, you could edit notes but instead it says “swipe left on a task to add notes.” You can’t swipe anything on completed tasks from previous days. I accidentally deleted a completed task from yesterday and had no way of reinstating it. You can only have a limited number of tasks without paying. The to do list function is pretty similar to Wunderlist but with stats on how often you stick to your habits, which I don’t really care about enough to pay for. Every other click on the app leads to a pop up to in app purchases which is really annoying. I’d rather sit through a 30 second ad twice a day than pay for this or continue to use it and deal with the constant pop ups. Maybe I’d pay a onetime nominal fee to use this but not a monthly charge.
Working so far
by L Corder on 2019/07/04 02:56
I’ve only had this a day, but it’s doing exactly what I want it to — which is to help me stay on task with a fairly regimented routine. I’m a mother of two children not yet in school, and my older son is enjoying having a schedule to follow. So far, so good. UPDATE: After one week, I’m still really liking this app. The interface is appealing and easy to use once you figure out where all the features are. The notification flags are great for keeping me on task. My days have gone much more smoothly and my kids are getting really great at knowing what to expect during the day for the past week. We have far fewer struggles and see much better behavior from them. I’m Type B when it comes to schedules — even though I thrive with one, I have a hard time staying on task by myself. I’ve done yoga every morning for a week! I’ve even had enough time to go to the gym. By myself. With two kids at home with their dad. Seriously! So glad I found this app.
Scheduling Habit
by Katherinesings on 2018/09/24 16:42
Organizational aids and visual tools are imperative to progress for my day. **I have already bought the Premium option. But, if there was anything that make the all-amazing app the ALL-IN-ONE for me it would be to be able to drag and drop tasks onto a daily schedule (dare I say like Time Finder app). It allows you to set up a full schedule, see at a glance where you are on a time line with your tasks- copy and repeat days to minimize fuss.... AND linking that to one’s calendar, including that content with all of your appointments?? That would be the biggest stress reliever for me EVER! Moving times that the task was completed, even just for that day, and being able to look back at the pattern of when certain tasks were better able to be executed than other times of the day. It would serve as a visual aid in my time management, instead of sort of feeling like I’m living aimlessly from one random chime to the next. Please consider. :)
Nice app but lacking some important features.
by -Gatherer on 2017/10/01 12:16
I’m a premium user of this app, and overall it’s nice looking and moderately functional. My biggest complaint is that it’s almost useless for data tracking. I meditate pretty much every day, but I consider doing it at least five days a week a success. So I went ahead and set the goal for five days a week. I meditated five days in a row, and suddenly I’ve lost the option to track it anymore for that week. Say I meditate every day for a week, I can’t track that under the five days setting. Meaning if I want to go back in time to see what days I usually miss, notice any patterns in the data—I’m out of luck. If I set it to the every day setting, and I miss a day, I lose my streak in the habit. Either I set it to five days, and I can’t keep accurate data records, or I set it to a week and I lose the motivation of maintaining a streak. It’s a really big flaw in the app and it would be nice to have it fixed. At least an option to allow a user to go over the set number of days would be nice, even if it wasn’t the default setting.
Disappointing, not intuitive enough, 7-day trail offer beware!
by MomWApps on 2019/07/04 03:34
Wanted to use the FREE 7 day trial to play around in this APP to see if it was the right fit. I ran into limited functions within the first five minutes. To use what felt like basic functions I was prompted to upgrade. I thought I was upgrading what I would be billed after the FREE to trial. That if I didn’t like what I experienced in the first 7 days, I could cancel. That’s what a FREE trial is. I wasn’t happy with the limited functions so I unlocked more. (What I needed to do was so basic. Set a reminder twice a day for one thing I needed to remember to do daily.) I was showing my teenager the functions and he laughed and said he couldn’t believe I paid for it. I was showing him because if he liked what he saw in the TRIAL on my phone, I was going to get it for him too. I decided in the same day I downloaded it, it wasn’t for me. It was too complicated, not intuitive enough. I went to cancel the trial and I was already billed for a full year! I stopped my subscription but it won’t end until JULY 3, 2020! My FREE trial started July 3, 2019. AND ON THE SAME DAY I’M BILLED FOR A FULL YEAR. No refund. It really makes me mad. It’s not right. Beware of the “free trial.”
Update: Still Using the App Daily!
by ChelsBug88 on 2019/08/21 19:07
UPDATE:: Still using the app daily to track my habits, I know I’m going to do things like walk my dog, drink water, brush teeth, but it is easy to check it off my “did today” list and the little push to keep up with things like tidying my bedroom or dishes is pretty motivating!! So 2-weeks later I’m still on a roll! Yay! First day of downloading:: “I just downloaded this app and got it started today, but so far it’s easy enough. The layout of using the app is kind of confusing, I thought I could add things for specific dates, but that’s okay that I can’t. I’ve started adding simple things like drinking water, walking the dog, etc... it does already feel good when I can mark things “done”. I just know personally I get bored easily with apps I have to use daily but since this doesn’t require writing things down or jotting anything in the app I might actually have a reason to want to keep using it!! 🙂”
I liked balanced better
by Kathrynelise.art on 2017/09/10 20:55
I appreciate the ability to schedule todos or habits on specific days of the week but balanced had the ability to actually set the frequency of a habit for seasonal and yearly tasks. Productive doesn't seem to do that. I thought it did once actually but it looks like it doesn't now either way. For me, i use this mainly to keep track of household chores. I like not setting a specific day but rather a frequency. I know i need to clean bedsheets once a week... other things once a month. Other things once a season and others like spring cleaning, once a year. So this doesn't work for me anymore and balanced is gone. Fortunately i can just download it still from the backup so I'm just going to continue using that instead. Also i like that theres functionality for the apple watch but i find that its a lot more useful to have a complication for these kinds if apps. Just a simple complication that tells me whats at the top of the list for today. Something like that. So yeah bring back seasonal and yearly frequencies and make a complication. :)
The free version doesn’t let you do anything at all pretty much
by bgbvvvvvv on 2019/08/20 09:09
Wow first off I was super happy that I found an app that would fit me perfectly and keep in mind I am aware about the whole free aspects of apps and I’m Not new to the free treatment but Holy cow you cannot even do anything why would we only have at least three habits the whole point of the app and we can only have three I can download another app that would let me do way more than just three I get you guys might not have the best reasons to push users to get a premium but oh my gosh that is not making me I want to get a premium it makes me want to immediately delete the app I’m a student and I’m on a budget I even needed this app of checking my subscriptions for other things and wow how ironic the reminding app Also wants a subscription to!? Look all I’m asking is I hope you guys find a way to give users more habits than just three at least six I mean come on now it’s a reminding app and I’m not even touching on how expensive The premium is for just a DAME REMINDING APP! That’s all this app is I don’t even know why it’s offering a subscription to begin with but just let us have more reminders that’s all I ask
This is a killer app
by zcochran88 on 2018/03/29 12:42
I am beginning to love Productive. It is a customizable app that makes it easier for you to build and stick to habits. I started trying this out for a week and didn’t use it very much, because the app is really valuable if you dedicate time to customizing it and using it. When my free week expired, it auto-bought the year membership, so I thought, fine, let me give it a second try. Boy am I glad I did. I use Productive between 1-3 times a day, which makes sense: the app has 3 built in reminders to do tasks (morning, afternoon, and evening). It has been a tool I’ve used to put into action the morning and evening routines I want to do on a daily basis. It has also helped me figure out what habits I am building effectively and which ones I am not, because I see how many days in a row I’ve done something and it’s a signal to me that my system is broken if I lapse more than a day in a row. It also helped me to realize that being specific and actionable is super important because there is nothing to “do” on an item that is general and vague. All in all, I’ve started to recommend this app to my clients and think if someone is a self-starter, they will appreciate this and might even love it! The one thing I hope Productive improves is adding more images to assign to habits. They have a large list, but to boost it further would be great. Bottom line: worth the $20!
Fantastic app! Please don’t use if you don’t like the price
by LisaT0611 on 2019/09/08 05:45
This app is working great for me. I needed an app to remind me of my daily supplements intake, at different times of a day, and some other various habits like what time to go to bed, doing some stretches in the middle of a working days. This app did just that but in a really convenient way, much better than just the free reminder app. I especially love the Siri shortcut to signal completion of the task. Please stop complaining if you’re not happy about the pricing structure. The free reminder is there on your phone to do a decent job if you’re not willing to pay. I understand not everyone is willing to pay a certain prices for certain things but you simply don’t buy something if it’s out of your budget or you wait for a sale, not giving it bad review based on their prices you’re not willing to pay
Cool app, could use some more features
by Mrs Tyler on 2019/05/31 11:02
I literally just downloaded this app, and will probably revise my number of stars once I get better acquainted with it, but I wanted to share this thought before I forget... I think it would be cool if you added the feature to tap certain goals each time you do them. Like for example: posture. I need to check/correct my posture more than 3 times per day, but that’s the most frequent option the app allows. I’d like to be able to tap my posture goal each time I check/correct my posture, and for the app to keep a count of how many times I did that throughout the morning/afternoon/evening/day/week. And that tap count option would be something you could toggle on/off for any task. Then I can see how engaged I am with that task, since good posture ultimately and ideally needs to be done 100% of the time that I’m awake. This feature could help me track how my engagement with this task improves/declines day to day and week to week.
Shameful there’s no free option at all
by amber hates canva on 2019/04/21 01:00
So sad. This app used to be free but now you can’t use it at all without shoving out $30. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive as the only changes I’ve noticed is geo tagging habits? I understand it’s only $2.50 a month but my mind still can’t justify why, seems just desperate. Wish they introduced any free option, maybe with ads. But not having that option at all, even with limited functionality, is very disappointing. It just seems like, it’s all about money and that’s it. Also saw a note that if you paid before ($3.99 for unlimited use) you can restore that purchase. That’s great for some people but my Apple ID is different. Sounds like I’m out of luck. UPDATE//free option is available—when prompted to try free before subscribing just click the x to be taken to the app. Wish this was clearer, there should be something that says “try free option”. Either way, happy it’s free. The aesthetic and modern vibe of the app is great but that shady little trick about subscribing is disappointing
Scam!
by juju10537 on 2018/11/02 05:13
I got the app and decided after a couple of days that it wasn’t a good fit for me, so when I went to unsubscribe from it, there was no option to unsubscribe as there usually is with apps. After messing with it for awhile, I assumed there was no option to unsubscribe because I wasn’t going to be billed anything - I ended up getting billed $23 all of a sudden, a month later, for an app I don’t even use! I’m a broke college student - I can’t afford to lose that money. The option to unsubscribe NEEDS to be more available and user-friendly. Edit: I’m fully aware that manually unsubscribing from the app is necessary, as is with most apps, but there is literally no option to opt out under those settings - the button in red font at the bottom of the page that should be there is nonexistent, but it’s present in the other apps I have. As I said above, I already tried to unsubscribe but eventually assumed that I wasn’t going to be charged since every other app I had, and the format of the page in the tutorial, included a very obvious “unsubscribe” button. I’d just like to know what my options are for getting my money refunded.
Helpful for Reminding/Bad for Data Tracking
by Anxiety Shopper on 2019/01/19 15:20
I’ve been using this to set goals to increase meal prepping, eating cooked meals from home and working out. I love the actual checklist part, but the way the app tracks data doesn’t make sense. If you complete all of your daily goals you get a filled in bubble for the day. If you have a goal set for 3x/week, the days that you do that goal will be filled in but the days that you don’t remain hollow. I think at the end of the week if all of your weekly goals are met that all of the bubbles for that week should become filled in to show you had a perfect week. Additionally, I don’t understand how the streaks work (yes I read it in the app). Sometimes if you skip a habit or don’t do it, it will break your streak (which makes sense), but then I’ve also had it happen where if I have perfect days in a row somehow my streak has been broken. I really wish the data collection piece made more sense so I could get a more accurate picture of my hard work.
Small price to pay
by GeekyPanda on 2019/03/20 04:28
If you want a habit and nothing else is working I highly recommend this app. I’ve read so many books on the psychology behind building habits and this app touches upon those same principles. Being able to make a streak is extremely rewarding and instead of doing something to achieve a reward you are competing against yourself. Being able to check something off as completed is very satisfying. The app really is best used in premium but if you’re serious about your goals then you can spare the cash. In my case, paying up the money is actually more motivating because I want to make sure I don’t waste it by ignoring my goals. Overall, great app. Wish you could go into more details as far as times a reminder happens but it’s a good investment in yourself.
I didn’t use it
by swagro on 2019/04/20 14:57
So it’s a free service, but.... blah blah blah. No it’s NOT a free service, there is a subscription price, and if cancellation takes effect, you get downgraded to the free service after paying for the subscription! Is it free or not! Make it clear, make it plain, smoke and mirrors is for the Friday night comedy show, not my personal life. I downloaded just to find that there is a 7 day “free” trial, after which the subscription price takes effect, but you can cancel, oh but wait, cancellation takes effect 24 hours after the last use of the upgraded..... and you lost me. If I want to read ramblings I can just click on some random privacy policy in anything at all. A waste of m time, and I want to be compensated for wasting my time that I should have been using to do chores and be productive, like the name of your highly elusive 1 star app. So I deleted the app, but now I’m combing through my account settings to see if you somehow hooked into my Apple Pay for some strange subscription that I don’t even want any part of! I have a note pad! It costs $.25! Give me my time back!
Great app but.. Always a catch
by Aroi lama on 2019/07/31 17:37
The app is really good and I like the concept. Except i can barely use it. I can’t put more than two habits in and there’s a constant ad/reminder for their subscription which is frustrating. Then on top of that there is no option for a one time fee altogether. I understand people have to make income off the app but it shouldn’t be listed as free since in order to use it to be productive you have to pay money. It’s really disappointing but hopefully I find a better app with a similar concept. Update: I only ended up downloading this app because this is the first app advertised and I liked the color scheme. The reply they gave was generic and seem to place the blame on the consumer versus taking responsibility like they do with positive reviews. The app along with the price is simply just a waste of time. There is other apps with the same concept that does more which are free or offer a reasonable one time purchase which will save money. Please look elsewhere because this will increase and encourage other apps with basic use to add subscriptions.
Could be better.
by Rings_of_kaylers on 2018/11/28 14:56
The Productive app seems to be a great app, allowing you to keep up with habits and reminds you of events or tasks you need to complete. Yet, the amount of ads it has promoting itself is distasteful and will bug out to where you can not add another task. The main screen also has another bug. The text that comes down when you’re adding a new habit will merge with the line of text that comes up stating that you don’t have any tasks at the moment, but later in the day. I’m disappointed that such a highly ranked productivity app does not simply have a tab in the settings area asking if you want to upgrade or not. As an example, the P. Schedule has this system to where you can upgrade for better quality, but you aren’t bombarded with ads asking you for a yearly membership. And for an app that hasn’t been updated in 11 months, I think I’d give my money to them. Until this type of problem is fixed or becomes less of an annoyance, I will not be using this app any longer.
Skip Justification Option?
by Raider1317 on 2019/02/18 00:31
So far I am enjoying it and it is helping me with my various tasks. I would like to see though, a feature where I can make a task as ‘optional’ or something to where if I don’t do it/skip it, it wouldn’t count as a negative strike for it. Or maybe have a justification block come up to explain why I can’t do a task. For example: I have a task to hit the gym in the morning but sometimes I can’t because I have to go into the office instead to get some work done which makes me then ‘skip’ it. But for those days I have another hit the gym task set in the afternoon just in case I can’t make the morning one. So at some point, one of those hit the gym tasks is going to be ‘skipped’ since I’ll do the other one. Unless I’m missing a setting or setting these up completely wrong I would like to see this feature added so it doesn’t seem like I’m always skipping something.
Impressive
by Lalablahci md on 2018/01/05 03:36
I honestly really enjoy this app! I’ve been able to keep up my daily habits much more frequently. I’ve tried other habit trackers in the past and it just wasn’t as effective. I this app has various options. The scheduling really helps, as well as he option to boost one particular habit. I’ve made noticeable growth in my yoga practice and haven’t stopped since (: This app has really helped me to put my habits into practice. I throughly enjoy it. I even bought the premium version. And I NEVER buy apps. But I’m glad I made he small investment. My only thing is, I wish maybe it was more informative. I think it’s a wonderful app. But sections on science behind habits would be awesome, or studies concerning habits and providing that to the public, maybe the premium users. I think it’s wonderful, but it’s definitely missing something (: The stats are nice but I barely ever use them.
Pay for a subscription? $3.99
by Tim Jordan on 2018/03/05 18:03
This a great app but instead of having a option of buying it like they used to have now you have to subscribe currently at $3.99 a month. This subscription trend is something we as consumers need not support. If you think you will just use the 5 reminders for free and not subscribe think again. The ads to subscribe are near ever present! Why not give consumers a way to buy it once for a higher price. It looks like they can raise the rate any old time they choose (fine print) meaning you will have to pay more or get a new app. Highly annoying for me as a consumer. It’s a good app. However the way they are forcing ads on you is annoying. DON’T SUPPORT THIS TREND. Please rate all these subscription type apps with one star and then just don’t buy them. If you support subscription apps soon that is all we will have. As consumers you have a voice. They won’t give you a choice later if they want to raise rates. This type of pricing is not consumer friendly and should not be supported by the marketplace.
Pricy & highly limited...
by Frustration isnt the word. on 2019/06/29 10:38
I could really use extra help remembering everything when I have a daily list of a million and one things to do but at the cost per year on top of my living expenses, I just couldn't see this being any better than a reminder on my phone thats not costing me a subscription every month/year. I would have gave a better rating if I had any chance at using it without so many limitations. I'd rather deal with ads for the free version than to be limited as much as the free version sits now. It seems reasonable for the price unless you do more work than what you actually are paid for and let's face it, that's the reality of working class America. Not cost effective or considerate of supporting the lower class efforts in succeeding much like the rest of the tax free high class. Smart people work towards cutting out the unnecessary cost in order to get ahead and while the idea of this app is nice, it's not bringing any competition to it's competitors let alone effectively supporting the very market it's looking to attract.
Gets you focused and then gets out of the way
by zshall on 2017/12/05 00:55
I’ve been using Productive for 9 months and I start and end every day with it. Adding new tasks is fast and it’s easy to set and modify schedules as you go. The concept of “perfect days” has been especially motivating since it pushes me further. It may have been a long day and I might be tired but the app will tell me that if I just get the mail and clean up my kitchen it’ll be perfect, and so I do. I haven’t gotten behind on my chores in months anymore and I’m never at a loss for what needs doing. Besides chores, adding other activities like exercising or reading has helped motivate me to do those more often. This is a simple tracker but the essentials are very well polished, and it doesn’t feel weighted down with too many options. Super nice app overall!
Productive is Perfection
by Jeanne74 on 2019/09/19 23:01
I am a list maker. I love checking things off. Problem is- I lose the list or the tech I’ve tried doesn’t remind me. This app is front and center with reminding me to get stuff done. It’s flexible with when and how I want to accomplish tasks. I love the “streak” part of the tracking. It helps me feel like I’m making progress even if I’m not perfect. Each task has its own “streak” as well as the whole day can be a streak if you do ALL of your tasks. I’ve finally accomplished things like- regular flossing, saying daily affirmations , and improving the quality of food I consume with this app. If you’re even thinking you may want help getting “self-care” or basic “oh I need to remember to water my plants 4 days a week,” just download it and start keeping plants alive!!!
Loved Balanced, not a fan of subscription
by pipelinebreak on 2018/03/19 07:06
I'm REALLY not a fan of the subscription model - I would rather pay for an app with unlimited habits and no ads. Right now, the adverts are incredibly annoying and actually ruins the experience of an otherwise lovely app, especially since I was such a huge fan of Balanced and IIRC even paid for that one to be advert-free for life. However, I actually prefer the way Productive splits the day into parts - one of the biggest issues I had with Balanced was that it made it impossible to organize tasks manually or by specific times of the day. Will work with this for a bit until the adverts start being too intrusive, then will delete unless there's an option to pay a one-time fee for this app. Just not worth the pop ups and ugly adverts to ruin the otherwise perfect minimalist aesthetic this tries so hard to maintain.
Helps my ADD
by bigcitysmallpatience on 2019/07/19 21:43
I’m working on streamlining my days and weeks so I have to make less decisions in the mornings and day to day about prioritizing my time while still taking care of myself, and this app is hella worth it. The price is pretty steep for a student, but it honestly is very little if you think about it per month, and it’s been invaluable. It’s easily color coded, more flexible than similar apps without sacrificing simplicity, and I just have to glance at it to know what my priority is in that moment. Plus, seeing your streaks is really motivational and gives you an idea about the place that task has in your life (ie. if you keep avoiding it, if it’s always done without fail and therefore you should attach other habits to it etc etc).
The latest update breaks everything!
by Xiyun Liu on 2019/09/18 07:50
After the latest update, a lot of things doesn’t work. First, updating a habit will make you lose all the record for this habit. I updated my daily habit to 4 times a week, and then all previous record for this habit are gone, and leads to a broken steak. The last version of this app didn’t remove the previous record. Second, very ridiculous, the date is wrong. Tmr is shown as today. For example, today is 09/18 Wednesday, but the app shows today as 09/19 Thursday. This new version has soooo many bugs and I’m really done with it. I tried hard to keep my stripe, but now, after updating a habit, my steak is broken. I paid full year membership for this app. Can you just fix it and make my steak back?? Last but not the least, CAN YOU HIRE BETTER ENGINEER AND QA? I am a software Engineer, and I can’t even imagine how these obvious bugs were not caught before launch. I understand a small company has bias for action, so you may not have automation tests for GUI, but you guys must have QA right? How could they not catch the bugs? Also, IOS store takes at least two weeks to publish a new version of the app, so if there is anything that is broken on the GUI side, it’s really hard for you to fix in the short amount of time. Thinking about how large the customer impact will be, shouldn’t you be more careful? I’m just really upset about how unresponsible your engineers and QAs are.
Swindled into Paying $20 that is Apparently Non-Refundable
by t_c_987 on 2018/04/19 18:34
I downloaded the free trial of this app and while it’s got a nice principle function, there were some features the app was lacking, in my opinion. For that reason I didn’t want to purchase the app’s premium subscription. However, the developers did not make cancelling after the “free” trial easy to do. You have to cancel your subscription through a link that’s not easily found in the app, that takes you to the Apple support site and you have to cancel through that platform instead of within the app itself. If you do not cancel before the 7 day trial is up, you are automatically charged the premium subscription fee and that purchase cannot be canceled (ie no refund). Usually apps will refund the automatic charge if you cancel within a day or so of when the free trial ends. This was not the case, and I feel like I was swindled into paying $20 that is apparently non-refundable, which is extremely unsettling. Beware of this.
Trap of an app
by Nextiteration on 2019/10/17 01:56
I downloaded the app and deleted within an hour of messing around with the limited free trial functions. To my surprise, a week later I was charged for an entire year of the premium subscription. The developer is clearly taking advantage of fine-print subscription terms and people who value their time (might be this apps exact target audience...coincidence? I don’t think so). If you fall for this “trap of an app” by making both the mistake of initially downloading it and forgetting to unsubscribe from automatic renewals before deleting, you will need to request a refund from Apple Support as developers don’t have control over account payments - how convenient for them. My request for a refund was denied immediately despite going to support the day of the charge. I also submitted an accidental subscription renewal, and have yet to hear back or see my money returned. Until I do, or if I don’t, I won’t be using and/or trialing apps from this developer moving forward.
Good, but some issues
by Cmlucas on 2018/05/06 02:34
I like this app for what it is. I bought it fully a year ago and emailed some feedback which I think is important and easy to implement which still hasn’t seen its way through. I think that the ability to check something off every day even if you have met the “quota” for the week is important. For example if I have a goal to read 4x a week, I should still be able to at check it off 5-7x a week to reinforce my habit. Put in an option to have completed quotas greyed out at the bottom marking them as “done” but still doable. Also, the stream system needs to be fixed. If I make a habit today, then delete it, I cannot “finish” today. If I go back to yesterday and finish a weekly task and it eliminated it from today’s options, I cannot “finish” today. It ruins the streak. Ruins the whole reason of using the app.
Buggy, buggy, and oh yeah, BUGGY!!!
by JeepnickAZ on 2019/08/05 13:54
I downloaded this app and paid for a year subscription based on all the neat feature and thousands of positive reviews. After hours of setup and fine tuning of my habits I began to use it and thought it was pretty good. But then I tried to use the timer function for a habit. I had set the timer for a habit to 40 minutes and turned it on, and about m hour later I went in to check how much time was left since it felt like it had been too long. Turns out the timer doesn’t work it you leave the app or lock your phone. It just stops and then picks back up when you open the app again. I submitted feedback and was told they would consider adding the feature at some point. Why even bother in the first place guys? Then as I used the app more and more, I found my habits were starting to show up randomly as “Overdue,” even though ALL previous days habits were marked “Done,” or “Skipped.” So I reset the stats and started over. Then it happened again, and then again this morning. You can’t be productive, with Productive, because you will spend all your time trying to figure out why the app is behaving erratically. Year subscription? Guess I’ll chalk it up to a learning experience, delete the app and go back to Reminders, which is getting an overhaul in iOS 13 anyway. Enjoy the $30 guys, you won’t get another dime from me ever.
Perfect Encouragement!
by KSLadybug on 2019/09/16 15:48
The productive app has been something I’ve looked for for a long time. I can choose what to put into each and every day or what to put into one or two days a week the matter what my schedule might be like. Many apps do not allow you to choose different days of the week to be repeated. This one does. But what is most exciting to me about this app is that it is not pushy but is a gentle reminder and voice is very encouraging. I find it hard to make most of my goals during the day but I feel good about the ones I make and I don’t feel bad about the ones I missed. That has a lot to do with the total attitude of this app! Thank you for helping me. ☺️
Lacking simple features
by GeekyGirl007 on 2018/02/25 19:07
Reply to developer: Thank you for your reply to my review. However, I will not pay for a basic feature that most other apps give you for free. I have already deleted your app and replaced it with one that does pretty much everything your does and more without making me pay. I’m all for supporting developers, I know how much work goes into it, however I just can’t get behind it when it’s making people pay for something so basic that every other app on the market like it lets you do it for free. If this one thing were changed, I’d give a much better rating and even redownload it to give it another try. As it is now, I can recommend. I really wanted to love this app but you can’t choose a specific time to do your habit or task. You can not tell it to remind you at 1:00pm, for example. You can only say remind me morning, noon or night. Useless as a reminder app of it can’t do something as remind me at specific times.
Getting worse with every “update”
by ButMadNNW on 2019/09/17 06:33
I’ve been using this app since the “premium” version was a one-time optional payment. It was simple, clean, and did the job of counting how many times I completed a given task. Lately, it’s been degrading harshly as the developers try to add silly bells and whistles. - Items I have scheduled to do X days per week “break” their streak every Sunday. - Two items duplicated themselves for no reason. - All day today, since updating the app, “Today” has been tomorrow and everything I’ve yet to do today is marked as missed. Stop adding pointless “improvements” to an app that worked just fine before - you’re breaking it. I want my streaks to carry over week to week more than I want an annoying “way to go” pop-up every 50 item completions. UPDATE: I just changed how many times I wanted to do something in a week (which I do frequently with some items for my own reasons) and ALL my previous data for that task (HUNDREDS of completions) has been erased!! What are you doing?! UPDATE 2: Just had a reminder chime (at 23:30) for a task for which I never set a reminder. And there’s no way to delete it! You’ve completely broken what used to be a fine app. At this point, the only reason I haven’t given up on you is the hundreds- and thousands-long streaks of which I’d like to keep a record.
Expensive and only allows three alerts per day but good features
by ari@SF on 2018/04/12 04:37
I just started playing with this, it looks like it’s got a lot of interesting features but you can only set reminders three times a day, you can’t set it up to remind you every hour or every other hour. It’s got a $4/month subscription model so that’s not so exciting for such a small set of functionality. Honestly I think four dollars a year would be more competitive with other apps. I don’t mind some kind of ongoing fee because I know app development takes continuous work but I don’t think it’s gonna be worth this much to me. It does collect stats which is useful for me because I’m trying to keep track of how often I do short exercises a few times a day.
Less than a week and I’m hooked
by colorful.cole on 2018/02/16 17:30
I decided to just pay for a 6 month subscription instead of doing a week free to really to and be committed to my daily goals. I only work part time but still find the housework and daily tasks slipping away from me. Already after less than a week I have gotten more “thanks” from my boyfriend for helping deep clean more regularly. I have “tidy the house” every other day with deep cleaning specifics on the others. When you live with a neat person but are naturally more messy it can cause tension. This has helped so much! I have also been better about doing my daily yoga and I’ve read more this week then I have in the last month.
Great idea...
by Kanselmi on 2018/10/05 20:59
So the habits idea is great and love I can have a reminder for things that I have to do everyday. However, it would have been more helpful to also be able to schedule reminders that may not be an everyday item but an item that I need reminded to do next week. Also, you have a habit making a to do list but would again be helpful if you could also create the actual to do list in the app without creating individual habits for each item. Now I either make a choice of continue to use your app and also another app to accommodate those things or just leave your app I was excited about for one that accommodates everything in one place. I appreciate the 7 day trial because that’s what hooked me on the habits part. Great concept. Just a few flaws for me.
Really? Three free habits only?
by Yums3286 on 2018/09/06 00:29
I'd give this app 5 stars if only you could have at least a couple more habits for free. Now I have two separate apps for habit tracking: this and Google Calendar. At least Google Calendar's "Goals" is completely unlimited, but the thing is on that app I can't set these goals to remind me to do them on specific days. That's why I like this app. I also like this app because of the cute little icons you can put next to them and that you can assign a color for each of them. But this app would be more useful if I could put at least some more habit trackers here. If Google Calendar had the specific days feature, I'd only use that app. I was really excited about this app, and it could be a little more useful.

Wish more features were free
by Jessabelle on 2019/10/19 16:47
I love the look of this app, and it has awesome potential. However, I wish more basic features were free. Such as adding a time to a task. I understand that apps want subscribers for ongoing development, but I feel like what’s offered in the “free” version of this app makes it fairly useless and less superior than many other apps that offer the same thing. Will check back in the future to see if anything has changed.
Works well. Good ideas
by TaylorPlayer on 2019/10/19 15:55
Nice app. I like the options for setting time of day and repetitions. Best way I have found to create good habits.

App is nice, intrusive ads to upgrade is annoying
by NYC Neurotic on 2019/10/18 14:07
Intuitive interface makes using this app a breeze. I am just trying out the free version which allows tracking of 3 habits only, which is fine. How many habits can you successfully build at a time anyway? But the main complaint is the obnoxious and persistent intrusions of ads, influencing you to upgrade to their paid subscription version. That’s just rude. Turns the experience of using the app into a negative one. Too bad.
Organized
by TheCuteDayDreamer on 2019/10/18 13:33
I don't typically write reviews...like ever. But this app, even though I am only able to use what is left of the free trial (since I cannot afford the app itself) I can say it is the best habit app I've ever gotten. It is very organized and easy to use, and the customizeable icons and colors make it pleasing to the eye. This app is amazing! I will come back soon when I have the money!
Honest Opinion

This app has helped me, far more than any other on the App Store, to take control of my life. It has been especially useful in creating a healthy lifestyle, and to conquer depressive habits I had never been able to. The accountability the app brings is one that is lacking in pressure. If you end up not being able to complete a habit, you don’t get negative feedback. Most habit forming apps on the App Store have negative feedback when you are unable to meet your goals, which can become quickly frustrating and cause more self-criticism. Other apps on the market will send an obnoxious amount of reminders, that eventually become easy to ignore. Rather the app uses as many, or as little, reminders as you want. You can choose which days of the week and what time of day the habits need completed by. With the Premium feature, you are able to create as many habits as you want and gain access to more fun settings. For me, the amount I paid for the yearly subscription was worth it for the changes I have seen in my life. The only problems I have found is in the weekly section. You don’t get the option of choosing the day of the week for habits in the weekly tab. I have a plant I water every two weeks, always on Saturday’s, but there is currently no way to specify this option. Because I can find no other problems, and because of the personal help this app has provided, I am giving it 5 stars.
Great app
by Averi M on 2019/10/13 23:59
This app is great for keeping track of your habits and I have a bad habit of biting my nails so if you check off every day on the app it will probably stop you from doing your bad habit.
Improved my state of being

All this app really wants I was only able to create five habits. I have to buy a subscription to add more. What a waste of my time.

It is not a free app

With this app you have a week free then you have to pay.
Good app

Great organizer for those setting goals or wanting to creat positive lifestyle changes
by aschex on 2019/10/11 13:46
When creating a calendar for goals and good habits I didn’t really have an idea what software or app I was going to use. Thankfully I found this app which has an intuitive format with clean graphics that are pleasing to the eye. $30 for the year isn’t terrible but there are plenty of free alternatives especially is you already have Microsoft excel. I also wish there was an ability to write down notes or a journal entry for each day on the calendar. Aside from that and the price point this is a great app for those looking to become more aware of their habits or wanting to set goals!

Honestly, productivity has done so much for me! It keeps me on track to do the things I have to do and the things I want to do. Really love it.
Pretty good!
by marvelislife30 on 2019/10/11 01:27
This is a good productivity app! I would rate it 5 stars but it’s a little annoying how you have to pay so much for timed reminders, and you can only have limited reminders before it asks you to pay. I don’t love this app, but it’s still pretty good, it works well. I recommend it.
Want to focuse on your tasks? Get this app

Awesome
Reminders popping up at wrong time, etc.
by Zero-G on 2019/10/10 23:47
Love the basics of this app, but strangely the reminders pop up at a time other than I’ve designated. My phone is set for my time zone (of course), so I would think the app reminder times would reflect that? Also..when setting reminder times, it is based on ‘military time’. Is there any way to change that? Lastly, the app is not calculating my streaks correctly even though I mark each day’s as ‘done’. One day the streak will be one number then the next day it is a lower streak number, even though all that day’s habits were completed. Developer: Any feedback on these issues?
Best app ever!
by trobbins26 on 2019/10/10 21:43
This app is the best. It helps me get stuff done and is extremely intuitive and flexible to use. My day is way less stressful now!
Just the app I needed
by Jake Durkin on 2019/10/10 14:02
This app has really helped me get back in my rhythm. It’s mind blowing how much time you realize you waste in everyday when you plan every hour and or start prioritizing like this.
Having to pay $20 a month with out being signed up for it.
by stacy watts on 2019/10/10 07:29
I deleted the app before being able to access the premium feature. But I get charged $20 a month and there is no way to cancel it and it says I have to continue if paying for over a year. Very mad.
Love this app but..
by Bwalz177 on 2019/10/10 06:15
I love this app. I have been using it for over 4 years now. The only thing that I don’t like is having to pay for it now, so unfortunately I’m going to have to delete this app and find a new one.

Not free
by luis1248 on 2019/10/09 14:29
Try free for one week then auto subscribes for a year, or you can change it to a monthly basis. Why is everything a subscription???
Only 5 habits with free version
by Whitbeck on 2019/10/09 00:52
You can only set 5 habits with the free version and you don’t get to set reminders at a certain time or location, and do not get to access the statistics. The app also repeatedly pesters you into upgrading.
Too pricey for basic features
by rm0328 on 2019/10/08 22:53
I do not think this app is worth $30. I signed up for the free trial and was anticipating at most a charge for $6.99 to try premium for a month. It charged me $30 and I cannot unsubscribe for the remaining 11 months. It’s beyond silly that I paid for an app to send me reminders every couple hours. Google play has so many great free apps with the exact same features as this one. It’s not worth paying for.
Great app

Boring, annoying app
Now only 3 habits for free. Down from 5.
by Cmribold on 2019/10/08 00:53
So I don’t normally write reviews but I thought I would mention something about this app because of how unusable it is in the free version. I see a review from Jun 24th of this year that complains that you could only make 5 free habits in the free version of this app. Apparently in the months since then this company thought that was too generous and have now lowered that to 3 habits total. While they can totally do that within their rights, everything about this app screams money hungry. Going from 5 to 3 habits is one. The other is that they deceptively try and sign you up for a subscription by saying that it’s free. They also prompt you to subscribe every 3-4 screens. They also limited LIGHT MODE to a paid feature. Are you serious? I’m an iOS developer and I know exactly how little effort it takes to build light mode and dark mode into an app. The design is nice but the features are not worth nearly what they’re asking for it. Eventually they will make it so that you can open this app make 1 goal and then they’ll only show you the subscription screen. They would be so much better off if they just charged once to everyone for a lite version of the app (say 10 habits) and then premium subscribers get unlimited habits. This is not a $15 per year app (the 50% discount they offer everyone). Please do yourselves a favor and don’t try and nickel and dime your users. It’s just super distasteful and makes people upset. I understand that subscriptions are a much more stable business model and that they’re the way that Apple is suggesting apps go. I also understand that the work that has gone into making this app look and feel clean and crisp is harder than some may assume. It’s difficult to design simply. Unfortunately this app doesn’t get to shine like it could because of the business decisions for marketing it.

Great App but crashes
by Minnesota Bull Moose on 2019/10/07 18:37
I love this app. I’ve had it for 4 years. The updates have been great and the progression of improvements always make the experience better. The app is very open to your own means and can help you meet your goals. However as of late it has crashed multiple times during normal use. This have been going on for a week. Which is why right now I give it 4 of 5. Fix the crashes and you’ll get 5 of 5 from me.
Amazing!!

I am constantly finding myself going over my to do lists in my head. This app is great for tracking everything I need to get done to be healthier and happier, so I don’t have to stress about it as much. Once I got the hang of it, I love it! Thank you for the much needed help to clear out the worry cluttering my mind. There is now an app for that! 🤪

Alright

Not too useful. Kinda just like an uptakes version of the phone calandre I guess. You should still get it tho. But it’s a subscription $15 a year.
Helps establish new routines
by hdriggs on 2019/10/07 06:30
This app is very helpful with establishing and tracking new routines. I enjoy the color scheme, and the ease of swiping a task right or left to indicate if it has been completed or skipped for good reason (such as being out of town). I included some basic things that I’m already good at doing (taking vitamins and medication every day) so that I will always have something to mark as completed, in order to give me momentum, and to stack my habits. From what I can tell, the highest frequency you can track is 3 times a day. If you want to track number of ounces of water you drank, or how many times you did something else, I don’t see a way to do that. The Tally app would be better for that. Also, I like the any.do app for tracking and scheduling one-time tasks, including projects with multiple subtasks. For making and tracking big goals, Strides might be the app for you. Having recently entered a new phase of life, this app, Productive, is my app of choice for creating and tracking good habits and routines.
What?
by pikachubabydoll on 2019/10/07 05:01
I just downloaded the app and became excited by the amazing design and sleek set up of it in general, but as soon as I deleted the “beginning trial habit” and tried to add another it immediately would send me to the promo for the full version saying I’ve “reached the habit limit” How upsetting! I couldn’t even try out 2 habits before being told to pay for premium immediately, definitely not worth the money if I can’t even view what I would get with it!! :(

I feel less stress and anxiety when I can reflect on my to do list. Also using this to map out my workout routine. I love the dark theme because it’s easy in the eyes when you want to make a to do list for tomorrow and it’s late at night and you’ve already turned the lights out.

Why subscription and not one time fee?
by Hshuahahwioqgsv on 2019/10/05 20:35
It’s pretty ridiculous to have to pay a subscription for a simple reminders app. It would be great for a one time fee but the greedy developers want to charge recurring like they’re providing me with a service or something. It’s a productivity app and you make it unproductive to require a recurring subscription to add more tasks to a list...
Sub goals checklist
by rockero241 on 2019/10/05 14:03
Not bad at all, but it could be a lot better if you were to add a sub-check list to your current things, it would open the possibility to adding small projects and sub check lists to completing those projects. This app could easily replace other apps such as Things, with a better layout and user interface.

Subscription
by Ryoyster on 2019/10/03 14:37
I got this app and did the 7 day free trial. I was a day late with canceling the subscription and charged the yearly premium. I thought I would at least be credited back most of the yearly premium since it was one day. No refund whatsoever
Subscription overload
by Xancett on 2019/10/03 12:41
Got 3 pop ups telling me to subscribe by the time I finished the intro on how to use the app. Way overkill and clearly the app is meant to only be used if you subscribe.
Perfect for Mom Brain!
by Arid92 on 2019/10/03 09:42
This app is a game changer for me! Being a stay-home mom of 4 kids under 5 I have so much to keep track of and keep up on during a day and I can no longer depend on just my memory to remember all of it and when or if I did something already. I also am a person who loves lists and checking them off. This app is exactly the way I would have designed it for myself. It is so fun and very user-friendly. Premium is worth the money to me!

I’m getting work done, I’m pursuing my hobbies and staying on task while still having time to relax. The app is nice to look at too. I love it!
Too many ads
by BostonB on 2019/10/02 13:13
You gotta be joking giving this app 5 stars. Yes it’s slick and easy to navigate. But you can only have 3 habits before being asked to fork $30 to just keep track of a task?! Thanks but no thanks

Can’t cancel trial in App
by Ryan Ox on 2019/10/01 17:28
I decided to try the free 7 day trial...there was no way to cancel the trial within the app and they charged me $33 without my permission upon the trial ending. I can keep track of my own lists and goals without these annoying notifications. This is a scam.

I want to get in the habit of using this daily but since I haven’t gotten in the habit, I forget how to check off things I’ve done. I’m sure it will be better when I faithfully use it and don’t have to spend 20min trying to figure it out.

Great app!
by CheekySweetie on 2018/03/08 17:51
I'm 16 and I got this app to keep track of chores and other daily habits I often forget. It's exactly what I needed. I'm not trying to schedule my day down to the minute or even the hour. And I needed an app flexible enough that as long as I complete my habit that day, it doesn't break my streak, but still keeping certain habits to certain times of day. I like that you can schedule an individual habit for multiple times a day instead of having to create the same habit 3 times, each time scheduling a different time. I also enjoy how customizable it is, how you can choose the icon, color and order of the habits. My favorite thing about the app is the general scheduling. There are 3 times to schedule a habit to; morning, afternoon and evening. And you can choose between which times each of these apply. Even if I miss a habit during its schedules time, it isn't counted as missed until the day is over, which keeps my motivation for the streaks up. It's the perfect level of simplicity for me. My only complaint is that I have to pay a subscription for more habits! I don't really care about whatever else comes with premium. I love this app and it's exactly what I need but I can't pay a subscription. If it was a one-time fee for premium forever then I could do that. Even if it was $20 as long as it was just once. Otherwise, this app is just about perfect for me.
My Main App
by riddled1103 on 2018/05/31 16:55
I have paranoid schizophrenia, and having a stable routine along with medication and therapy is essential to my recovery. This is hands down the best app for creating and maintaining a daily self care routine. Being schizophrenic it is hard to stick with a routine. I am always forgetting what I need to be doing. Not anymore with this app. I use this app to remind me of the things I need to do each day. For projects I use Things 3, for one time reminders I use the standard reminders app, and for appointments I use the basic calendar. I keep these four apps in a folder called Daily. If I see a number over the folder, I know that something needs to be done. What I like most about this app is nothing has a time that is set in stone. There are three periods: morning, afternoon, and evening. This gives me needed flexibility, in case I am having a bad day. Also these periods keep me from becoming overwhelmed by looking at a whole days worth of tasks. (Although you can look at the full day if you need to). There is also a satisfying sound when you swipe a task complete. This app has worked wonders in my day to day life living with schizophrenia. If you don’t have a serious mental illness this app will still be extremely handy. If you do have a serious mental illness it is a necessity.
Helpful but some features are confusing and buggy
by Jen1018 on 2019/09/21 16:20
Wish I could give 3.5 stars. Paid for premium back when it was a flat fee, and it was worth it. Really helped me cope with ADHD. But I don’t think it’s worth the subscription price. The monthly habits system is basically useless. It gives you a 2-4 day window in either the beginning, middle, or end of the month to complete it before it disappears from the list and counts it as missed, and you can’t pick what those days are. If you chose the whole month, instead of beginning middle or end, it still does a 2 day window at the beginning of the month (It’s the 1st of the month right now, and my monthly habits all popped up as due by the 3rd). Looking at my calendar and deciding it makes more sense to do most of those chores next week for a variety of reasons, so now I’m swiping those as done even though they’re not done yet, which defeats the purpose. If it were at least a 1 week window, or we could pick the timing, that would really help to provide flexibility. I’ve reported this to the developers multiple times over the last few years and I always get a canned response that they’ll think about adding this feature... as opposed to fixing this broken feature... or even explaining why it works this way. Developers response to this review is to a separate issue I reported that still isn’t resolved. They still haven’t said anything about the monthly habits issue.
Very Helpful and Encouraging
by Katierae5 on 2019/01/03 05:19
I don't often take time to write reviews, but I am sincerely enjoying this help! It has been so helpful and easy to use. I love how easy to customize this, and if you miss or skip a goal for whatever reason its not degrading. Rather it encourages you to keep going, and do what you can to succeed with whatever size goal/task/daily chore/project/new habit you recorded. I have tried other apps similar before and have been very disappointed, and then ended up losing interest and feeling more defeated by not getting something done. If you are a personality where you need to record your tasks or enjoy the satisfaction of crossing something else off from your day this is for you! I will admit that in the free version I only had the ability to record 2 goals/habits, which was not close to what I was hoping for. The company offered a timed promotion that Im not sure if it was only over the holiday or just as a new user I got a chance to upgrade too. However, I decided to give it a shot as it was only $12 for the full year which was easily affordable and I am really loving the fact I did. I highly recommend!
Does not work between devices
by LDS14LDS on 2019/09/02 12:39
I have been using this app for a year now. Here’s what I think. The app under the same login and account look totally different on my iPhone and iPad. Tracking is off and it does not let you fix. Although I am competing with my self as far as doing task daily I think I should not have to worry about checking off task on each device or adding each habit to each device. I do not remember seeing anything that said adding or checking off habits should be done on one or another device for the app to sync. For instance I am starting over on one task on one device and sitting at 50 on my other device. I sync one device and according to the app it synced on my other device. The problem is it did not, some of the habits are still different. I do like the app but wish that everything would sync and regardless of which device I complete the task on or add task too that it syncs with other device. I have sent emails to the app designer from the beginning with no resolution. I was told that it would be addressed in an update several months ago. If anyone knows how to fix this problem it would be greatly appreciated as I really do like app and it has been useful for me. I do have the full subscription and would give the app a 5 if this issue could be resolved.
Awesome!
by Sarah B29 on 2019/01/12 04:11
I love this app for tracking habits. The premium version is well worth the price, especially if you consider the cost per month of the annual option. I’ve been trying to start a bullet journal, but have struggled with motivating myself to go through and physically set up the format myself to track each habit, with this app it does all the work for me and has a nice design. I wish there was a little bit more flexibility with scheduling monthly habits, like if you could pick an exact day of the month when something needs to be done, or the number of times per month you’d want to do something, similar to the layout when setting weekly goals. Another feature I’d like to see is the ability to “overachieve” on a goal. Like if I set my gym goal as a minimum of 3 times a week, it would be nice to be able to mark it done if I go a fourth time in order to track progress and help reevaluate goals later on. I’d especially like it if this was a feature able to be turned on or off depending on each habit. Overall this is a great and easy to use app that helps me stay motivated and productive.
Confession of an Appaholic
by Anyabells on 2019/05/01 13:48
When I see a new and interesting app I can’t help myself- I download and try it. Every few weeks I find myself trying a new “productivity” app, whether it be a to-do or habit tracking or what have you. But this is the app I always find myself coming back to ever since I first downloaded it about six years ago. No other app has been as easy to set up, enjoyable to use, or useful. And every time I come back to it there are more features! Useful features, too, not ones that make things more difficult or overwhelming: they integrate smoothly into what is already there. The only reason I ever stop using this app is because I am so bad at sticking to a routine. But when I put forward the effort, this is the only app I have found that actively encourages me. Just the idea of using it is enough to help me recommit :) And I have never regretted buying the full version, which is not the case with so many other apps. Give it a try and you’ll understand why the ratings are so consistently good.
Quite a good app
by 17374850483761919384649 on 2018/06/19 01:53
I especially appreciate this app, since the calendar it has tracks when you do things and when you don’t do things. This gives you a satisfying cross-off of the days of the week you do the things you planned, making you feel compelled to keep up the task instead of putting it off another day. That being said, all of the features (in the free version at least) besides reminders can be done using a regular calendar, which would give you an even more satisfying cross-off since it is being done physically. However, I would still recommend this app, for people who are still struggling with procrastination, since it isn’t the laziness but rather the will, and personally the will has kept me going with this app. The only downside is that I think the not free version is quite a bit expensive, especially for a mere habit tracking app, and especially considering that all of the features it has and offers in the paid version could be done with other apps that are free (like apps that come with an iPhone). Nevertheless, this is still an amazing app and it has helped me with habit tracking.
Works well, but...
by Imperialmeasures on 2019/06/24 05:04
I like how this app is set up and what you can do with it. It is really good for keeping track of the things that I need to do. However, it is clear to me that this app really isn’t free. In the free version, you can set 5 habits, which doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what I need to keep track of on a daily basis. maybe of all i wanted to do was remind myself to go to the gym every day, it would be usable, but then you could just use one of the free apps that comes on the iphone. I understand that the developers want to make money, but the subscription pricing model is a big turn-off for be and i assume based on other reviews many other people. The price is really not that expensive, but personally i would rather have ads than have to pay $30 a year for an app that really does not do anything particularly interesting or unique. It’s nice to have, but for me, it’s not worth having to pay a per year price indefinitely when i could do exactly the same things, mind you less conveniently, with a free service like google calendar. So maybe if this app had a one time payment or ads i would use it, but currently, i am not prepared to spend 30 dollars a year so that i can be reminded to go to the gym.
New Update Made This App Perfect
by Chronological Annoyed on 2019/09/03 21:01
New Review September 2019: Thank you times 1 million for updating the app so I can check off the previous day. I use this app basically every day & this update has made it so much more enjoyable. If I completed a habit, but forgot to say that I did on this app, I’m able to still go back to yesterday & change it to done. I’ve already used this feature numerous times because I don’t remember to check all of my habits off every day. Thank you for listening! Sincerely, loyal app user. Old Review June 2019: Hi Productive is a great app that I use every day, besides the fact that I can’t check off the previous day. There are so many times when I forget to check stuff from the previous day. It then ends my streak, logs my habits incorrectly because I really did it, and I can’t do anything about it. Please change this Productive App!!! It’s not like I’m going to go back and check of yesterday if I didn’t do it. Sincerely, loyal app user.
Limitations and constant subscription badgering make this too annoying
by hja91 on 2019/09/14 06:40
I liked the idea and aesthetic of this app. Unfortunately the paywall and its limitations makes it not worth downloading. The help section states that you can add notes onto completed tasks from previous days but you actually can’t. It would make sense that if you clicked on a task then clicked the notes section, you could edit notes but instead it says “swipe left on a task to add notes.” You can’t swipe anything on completed tasks from previous days. I accidentally deleted a completed task from yesterday and had no way of reinstating it. You can only have a limited number of tasks without paying. The to do list function is pretty similar to Wunderlist but with stats on how often you stick to your habits, which I don’t really care about enough to pay for. Every other click on the app leads to a pop up to in app purchases which is really annoying. I’d rather sit through a 30 second ad twice a day than pay for this or continue to use it and deal with the constant pop ups. Maybe I’d pay a onetime nominal fee to use this but not a monthly charge.
Working so far
by L Corder on 2019/07/04 02:56
I’ve only had this a day, but it’s doing exactly what I want it to — which is to help me stay on task with a fairly regimented routine. I’m a mother of two children not yet in school, and my older son is enjoying having a schedule to follow. So far, so good. UPDATE: After one week, I’m still really liking this app. The interface is appealing and easy to use once you figure out where all the features are. The notification flags are great for keeping me on task. My days have gone much more smoothly and my kids are getting really great at knowing what to expect during the day for the past week. We have far fewer struggles and see much better behavior from them. I’m Type B when it comes to schedules — even though I thrive with one, I have a hard time staying on task by myself. I’ve done yoga every morning for a week! I’ve even had enough time to go to the gym. By myself. With two kids at home with their dad. Seriously! So glad I found this app.
Scheduling Habit
by Katherinesings on 2018/09/24 16:42
Organizational aids and visual tools are imperative to progress for my day. **I have already bought the Premium option. But, if there was anything that make the all-amazing app the ALL-IN-ONE for me it would be to be able to drag and drop tasks onto a daily schedule (dare I say like Time Finder app). It allows you to set up a full schedule, see at a glance where you are on a time line with your tasks- copy and repeat days to minimize fuss.... AND linking that to one’s calendar, including that content with all of your appointments?? That would be the biggest stress reliever for me EVER! Moving times that the task was completed, even just for that day, and being able to look back at the pattern of when certain tasks were better able to be executed than other times of the day. It would serve as a visual aid in my time management, instead of sort of feeling like I’m living aimlessly from one random chime to the next. Please consider. :)
Nice app but lacking some important features.
by -Gatherer on 2017/10/01 12:16
I’m a premium user of this app, and overall it’s nice looking and moderately functional. My biggest complaint is that it’s almost useless for data tracking. I meditate pretty much every day, but I consider doing it at least five days a week a success. So I went ahead and set the goal for five days a week. I meditated five days in a row, and suddenly I’ve lost the option to track it anymore for that week. Say I meditate every day for a week, I can’t track that under the five days setting. Meaning if I want to go back in time to see what days I usually miss, notice any patterns in the data—I’m out of luck. If I set it to the every day setting, and I miss a day, I lose my streak in the habit. Either I set it to five days, and I can’t keep accurate data records, or I set it to a week and I lose the motivation of maintaining a streak. It’s a really big flaw in the app and it would be nice to have it fixed. At least an option to allow a user to go over the set number of days would be nice, even if it wasn’t the default setting.
Disappointing, not intuitive enough, 7-day trail offer beware!
by MomWApps on 2019/07/04 03:34
Wanted to use the FREE 7 day trial to play around in this APP to see if it was the right fit. I ran into limited functions within the first five minutes. To use what felt like basic functions I was prompted to upgrade. I thought I was upgrading what I would be billed after the FREE to trial. That if I didn’t like what I experienced in the first 7 days, I could cancel. That’s what a FREE trial is. I wasn’t happy with the limited functions so I unlocked more. (What I needed to do was so basic. Set a reminder twice a day for one thing I needed to remember to do daily.) I was showing my teenager the functions and he laughed and said he couldn’t believe I paid for it. I was showing him because if he liked what he saw in the TRIAL on my phone, I was going to get it for him too. I decided in the same day I downloaded it, it wasn’t for me. It was too complicated, not intuitive enough. I went to cancel the trial and I was already billed for a full year! I stopped my subscription but it won’t end until JULY 3, 2020! My FREE trial started July 3, 2019. AND ON THE SAME DAY I’M BILLED FOR A FULL YEAR. No refund. It really makes me mad. It’s not right. Beware of the “free trial.”
Update: Still Using the App Daily!
by ChelsBug88 on 2019/08/21 19:07
UPDATE:: Still using the app daily to track my habits, I know I’m going to do things like walk my dog, drink water, brush teeth, but it is easy to check it off my “did today” list and the little push to keep up with things like tidying my bedroom or dishes is pretty motivating!! So 2-weeks later I’m still on a roll! Yay! First day of downloading:: “I just downloaded this app and got it started today, but so far it’s easy enough. The layout of using the app is kind of confusing, I thought I could add things for specific dates, but that’s okay that I can’t. I’ve started adding simple things like drinking water, walking the dog, etc... it does already feel good when I can mark things “done”. I just know personally I get bored easily with apps I have to use daily but since this doesn’t require writing things down or jotting anything in the app I might actually have a reason to want to keep using it!! 🙂”
I liked balanced better
by Kathrynelise.art on 2017/09/10 20:55
I appreciate the ability to schedule todos or habits on specific days of the week but balanced had the ability to actually set the frequency of a habit for seasonal and yearly tasks. Productive doesn't seem to do that. I thought it did once actually but it looks like it doesn't now either way. For me, i use this mainly to keep track of household chores. I like not setting a specific day but rather a frequency. I know i need to clean bedsheets once a week... other things once a month. Other things once a season and others like spring cleaning, once a year. So this doesn't work for me anymore and balanced is gone. Fortunately i can just download it still from the backup so I'm just going to continue using that instead. Also i like that theres functionality for the apple watch but i find that its a lot more useful to have a complication for these kinds if apps. Just a simple complication that tells me whats at the top of the list for today. Something like that. So yeah bring back seasonal and yearly frequencies and make a complication. :)
The free version doesn’t let you do anything at all pretty much
by bgbvvvvvv on 2019/08/20 09:09
Wow first off I was super happy that I found an app that would fit me perfectly and keep in mind I am aware about the whole free aspects of apps and I’m Not new to the free treatment but Holy cow you cannot even do anything why would we only have at least three habits the whole point of the app and we can only have three I can download another app that would let me do way more than just three I get you guys might not have the best reasons to push users to get a premium but oh my gosh that is not making me I want to get a premium it makes me want to immediately delete the app I’m a student and I’m on a budget I even needed this app of checking my subscriptions for other things and wow how ironic the reminding app Also wants a subscription to!? Look all I’m asking is I hope you guys find a way to give users more habits than just three at least six I mean come on now it’s a reminding app and I’m not even touching on how expensive The premium is for just a DAME REMINDING APP! That’s all this app is I don’t even know why it’s offering a subscription to begin with but just let us have more reminders that’s all I ask
This is a killer app
by zcochran88 on 2018/03/29 12:42
I am beginning to love Productive. It is a customizable app that makes it easier for you to build and stick to habits. I started trying this out for a week and didn’t use it very much, because the app is really valuable if you dedicate time to customizing it and using it. When my free week expired, it auto-bought the year membership, so I thought, fine, let me give it a second try. Boy am I glad I did. I use Productive between 1-3 times a day, which makes sense: the app has 3 built in reminders to do tasks (morning, afternoon, and evening). It has been a tool I’ve used to put into action the morning and evening routines I want to do on a daily basis. It has also helped me figure out what habits I am building effectively and which ones I am not, because I see how many days in a row I’ve done something and it’s a signal to me that my system is broken if I lapse more than a day in a row. It also helped me to realize that being specific and actionable is super important because there is nothing to “do” on an item that is general and vague. All in all, I’ve started to recommend this app to my clients and think if someone is a self-starter, they will appreciate this and might even love it! The one thing I hope Productive improves is adding more images to assign to habits. They have a large list, but to boost it further would be great. Bottom line: worth the $20!
Fantastic app! Please don’t use if you don’t like the price
by LisaT0611 on 2019/09/08 05:45
This app is working great for me. I needed an app to remind me of my daily supplements intake, at different times of a day, and some other various habits like what time to go to bed, doing some stretches in the middle of a working days. This app did just that but in a really convenient way, much better than just the free reminder app. I especially love the Siri shortcut to signal completion of the task. Please stop complaining if you’re not happy about the pricing structure. The free reminder is there on your phone to do a decent job if you’re not willing to pay. I understand not everyone is willing to pay a certain prices for certain things but you simply don’t buy something if it’s out of your budget or you wait for a sale, not giving it bad review based on their prices you’re not willing to pay
Cool app, could use some more features
by Mrs Tyler on 2019/05/31 11:02
I literally just downloaded this app, and will probably revise my number of stars once I get better acquainted with it, but I wanted to share this thought before I forget... I think it would be cool if you added the feature to tap certain goals each time you do them. Like for example: posture. I need to check/correct my posture more than 3 times per day, but that’s the most frequent option the app allows. I’d like to be able to tap my posture goal each time I check/correct my posture, and for the app to keep a count of how many times I did that throughout the morning/afternoon/evening/day/week. And that tap count option would be something you could toggle on/off for any task. Then I can see how engaged I am with that task, since good posture ultimately and ideally needs to be done 100% of the time that I’m awake. This feature could help me track how my engagement with this task improves/declines day to day and week to week.
Shameful there’s no free option at all
by amber hates canva on 2019/04/21 01:00
So sad. This app used to be free but now you can’t use it at all without shoving out $30. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive as the only changes I’ve noticed is geo tagging habits? I understand it’s only $2.50 a month but my mind still can’t justify why, seems just desperate. Wish they introduced any free option, maybe with ads. But not having that option at all, even with limited functionality, is very disappointing. It just seems like, it’s all about money and that’s it. Also saw a note that if you paid before ($3.99 for unlimited use) you can restore that purchase. That’s great for some people but my Apple ID is different. Sounds like I’m out of luck. UPDATE//free option is available—when prompted to try free before subscribing just click the x to be taken to the app. Wish this was clearer, there should be something that says “try free option”. Either way, happy it’s free. The aesthetic and modern vibe of the app is great but that shady little trick about subscribing is disappointing
Scam!
by juju10537 on 2018/11/02 05:13
I got the app and decided after a couple of days that it wasn’t a good fit for me, so when I went to unsubscribe from it, there was no option to unsubscribe as there usually is with apps. After messing with it for awhile, I assumed there was no option to unsubscribe because I wasn’t going to be billed anything - I ended up getting billed $23 all of a sudden, a month later, for an app I don’t even use! I’m a broke college student - I can’t afford to lose that money. The option to unsubscribe NEEDS to be more available and user-friendly. Edit: I’m fully aware that manually unsubscribing from the app is necessary, as is with most apps, but there is literally no option to opt out under those settings - the button in red font at the bottom of the page that should be there is nonexistent, but it’s present in the other apps I have. As I said above, I already tried to unsubscribe but eventually assumed that I wasn’t going to be charged since every other app I had, and the format of the page in the tutorial, included a very obvious “unsubscribe” button. I’d just like to know what my options are for getting my money refunded.
Helpful for Reminding/Bad for Data Tracking
by Anxiety Shopper on 2019/01/19 15:20
I’ve been using this to set goals to increase meal prepping, eating cooked meals from home and working out. I love the actual checklist part, but the way the app tracks data doesn’t make sense. If you complete all of your daily goals you get a filled in bubble for the day. If you have a goal set for 3x/week, the days that you do that goal will be filled in but the days that you don’t remain hollow. I think at the end of the week if all of your weekly goals are met that all of the bubbles for that week should become filled in to show you had a perfect week. Additionally, I don’t understand how the streaks work (yes I read it in the app). Sometimes if you skip a habit or don’t do it, it will break your streak (which makes sense), but then I’ve also had it happen where if I have perfect days in a row somehow my streak has been broken. I really wish the data collection piece made more sense so I could get a more accurate picture of my hard work.
Small price to pay
by GeekyPanda on 2019/03/20 04:28
If you want a habit and nothing else is working I highly recommend this app. I’ve read so many books on the psychology behind building habits and this app touches upon those same principles. Being able to make a streak is extremely rewarding and instead of doing something to achieve a reward you are competing against yourself. Being able to check something off as completed is very satisfying. The app really is best used in premium but if you’re serious about your goals then you can spare the cash. In my case, paying up the money is actually more motivating because I want to make sure I don’t waste it by ignoring my goals. Overall, great app. Wish you could go into more details as far as times a reminder happens but it’s a good investment in yourself.
I didn’t use it
by swagro on 2019/04/20 14:57
So it’s a free service, but.... blah blah blah. No it’s NOT a free service, there is a subscription price, and if cancellation takes effect, you get downgraded to the free service after paying for the subscription! Is it free or not! Make it clear, make it plain, smoke and mirrors is for the Friday night comedy show, not my personal life. I downloaded just to find that there is a 7 day “free” trial, after which the subscription price takes effect, but you can cancel, oh but wait, cancellation takes effect 24 hours after the last use of the upgraded..... and you lost me. If I want to read ramblings I can just click on some random privacy policy in anything at all. A waste of m time, and I want to be compensated for wasting my time that I should have been using to do chores and be productive, like the name of your highly elusive 1 star app. So I deleted the app, but now I’m combing through my account settings to see if you somehow hooked into my Apple Pay for some strange subscription that I don’t even want any part of! I have a note pad! It costs $.25! Give me my time back!
Great app but.. Always a catch
by Aroi lama on 2019/07/31 17:37
The app is really good and I like the concept. Except i can barely use it. I can’t put more than two habits in and there’s a constant ad/reminder for their subscription which is frustrating. Then on top of that there is no option for a one time fee altogether. I understand people have to make income off the app but it shouldn’t be listed as free since in order to use it to be productive you have to pay money. It’s really disappointing but hopefully I find a better app with a similar concept. Update: I only ended up downloading this app because this is the first app advertised and I liked the color scheme. The reply they gave was generic and seem to place the blame on the consumer versus taking responsibility like they do with positive reviews. The app along with the price is simply just a waste of time. There is other apps with the same concept that does more which are free or offer a reasonable one time purchase which will save money. Please look elsewhere because this will increase and encourage other apps with basic use to add subscriptions.
Could be better.
by Rings_of_kaylers on 2018/11/28 14:56
The Productive app seems to be a great app, allowing you to keep up with habits and reminds you of events or tasks you need to complete. Yet, the amount of ads it has promoting itself is distasteful and will bug out to where you can not add another task. The main screen also has another bug. The text that comes down when you’re adding a new habit will merge with the line of text that comes up stating that you don’t have any tasks at the moment, but later in the day. I’m disappointed that such a highly ranked productivity app does not simply have a tab in the settings area asking if you want to upgrade or not. As an example, the P. Schedule has this system to where you can upgrade for better quality, but you aren’t bombarded with ads asking you for a yearly membership. And for an app that hasn’t been updated in 11 months, I think I’d give my money to them. Until this type of problem is fixed or becomes less of an annoyance, I will not be using this app any longer.
Skip Justification Option?
by Raider1317 on 2019/02/18 00:31
So far I am enjoying it and it is helping me with my various tasks. I would like to see though, a feature where I can make a task as ‘optional’ or something to where if I don’t do it/skip it, it wouldn’t count as a negative strike for it. Or maybe have a justification block come up to explain why I can’t do a task. For example: I have a task to hit the gym in the morning but sometimes I can’t because I have to go into the office instead to get some work done which makes me then ‘skip’ it. But for those days I have another hit the gym task set in the afternoon just in case I can’t make the morning one. So at some point, one of those hit the gym tasks is going to be ‘skipped’ since I’ll do the other one. Unless I’m missing a setting or setting these up completely wrong I would like to see this feature added so it doesn’t seem like I’m always skipping something.
Impressive
by Lalablahci md on 2018/01/05 03:36
I honestly really enjoy this app! I’ve been able to keep up my daily habits much more frequently. I’ve tried other habit trackers in the past and it just wasn’t as effective. I this app has various options. The scheduling really helps, as well as he option to boost one particular habit. I’ve made noticeable growth in my yoga practice and haven’t stopped since (: This app has really helped me to put my habits into practice. I throughly enjoy it. I even bought the premium version. And I NEVER buy apps. But I’m glad I made he small investment. My only thing is, I wish maybe it was more informative. I think it’s a wonderful app. But sections on science behind habits would be awesome, or studies concerning habits and providing that to the public, maybe the premium users. I think it’s wonderful, but it’s definitely missing something (: The stats are nice but I barely ever use them.
Pay for a subscription? $3.99
by Tim Jordan on 2018/03/05 18:03
This a great app but instead of having a option of buying it like they used to have now you have to subscribe currently at $3.99 a month. This subscription trend is something we as consumers need not support. If you think you will just use the 5 reminders for free and not subscribe think again. The ads to subscribe are near ever present! Why not give consumers a way to buy it once for a higher price. It looks like they can raise the rate any old time they choose (fine print) meaning you will have to pay more or get a new app. Highly annoying for me as a consumer. It’s a good app. However the way they are forcing ads on you is annoying. DON’T SUPPORT THIS TREND. Please rate all these subscription type apps with one star and then just don’t buy them. If you support subscription apps soon that is all we will have. As consumers you have a voice. They won’t give you a choice later if they want to raise rates. This type of pricing is not consumer friendly and should not be supported by the marketplace.
Pricy & highly limited...
by Frustration isnt the word. on 2019/06/29 10:38
I could really use extra help remembering everything when I have a daily list of a million and one things to do but at the cost per year on top of my living expenses, I just couldn't see this being any better than a reminder on my phone thats not costing me a subscription every month/year. I would have gave a better rating if I had any chance at using it without so many limitations. I'd rather deal with ads for the free version than to be limited as much as the free version sits now. It seems reasonable for the price unless you do more work than what you actually are paid for and let's face it, that's the reality of working class America. Not cost effective or considerate of supporting the lower class efforts in succeeding much like the rest of the tax free high class. Smart people work towards cutting out the unnecessary cost in order to get ahead and while the idea of this app is nice, it's not bringing any competition to it's competitors let alone effectively supporting the very market it's looking to attract.
Gets you focused and then gets out of the way
by zshall on 2017/12/05 00:55
I’ve been using Productive for 9 months and I start and end every day with it. Adding new tasks is fast and it’s easy to set and modify schedules as you go. The concept of “perfect days” has been especially motivating since it pushes me further. It may have been a long day and I might be tired but the app will tell me that if I just get the mail and clean up my kitchen it’ll be perfect, and so I do. I haven’t gotten behind on my chores in months anymore and I’m never at a loss for what needs doing. Besides chores, adding other activities like exercising or reading has helped motivate me to do those more often. This is a simple tracker but the essentials are very well polished, and it doesn’t feel weighted down with too many options. Super nice app overall!
Productive is Perfection
by Jeanne74 on 2019/09/19 23:01
I am a list maker. I love checking things off. Problem is- I lose the list or the tech I’ve tried doesn’t remind me. This app is front and center with reminding me to get stuff done. It’s flexible with when and how I want to accomplish tasks. I love the “streak” part of the tracking. It helps me feel like I’m making progress even if I’m not perfect. Each task has its own “streak” as well as the whole day can be a streak if you do ALL of your tasks. I’ve finally accomplished things like- regular flossing, saying daily affirmations , and improving the quality of food I consume with this app. If you’re even thinking you may want help getting “self-care” or basic “oh I need to remember to water my plants 4 days a week,” just download it and start keeping plants alive!!!
Loved Balanced, not a fan of subscription
by pipelinebreak on 2018/03/19 07:06
I'm REALLY not a fan of the subscription model - I would rather pay for an app with unlimited habits and no ads. Right now, the adverts are incredibly annoying and actually ruins the experience of an otherwise lovely app, especially since I was such a huge fan of Balanced and IIRC even paid for that one to be advert-free for life. However, I actually prefer the way Productive splits the day into parts - one of the biggest issues I had with Balanced was that it made it impossible to organize tasks manually or by specific times of the day. Will work with this for a bit until the adverts start being too intrusive, then will delete unless there's an option to pay a one-time fee for this app. Just not worth the pop ups and ugly adverts to ruin the otherwise perfect minimalist aesthetic this tries so hard to maintain.
Helps my ADD
by bigcitysmallpatience on 2019/07/19 21:43
I’m working on streamlining my days and weeks so I have to make less decisions in the mornings and day to day about prioritizing my time while still taking care of myself, and this app is hella worth it. The price is pretty steep for a student, but it honestly is very little if you think about it per month, and it’s been invaluable. It’s easily color coded, more flexible than similar apps without sacrificing simplicity, and I just have to glance at it to know what my priority is in that moment. Plus, seeing your streaks is really motivational and gives you an idea about the place that task has in your life (ie. if you keep avoiding it, if it’s always done without fail and therefore you should attach other habits to it etc etc).
The latest update breaks everything!
by Xiyun Liu on 2019/09/18 07:50
After the latest update, a lot of things doesn’t work. First, updating a habit will make you lose all the record for this habit. I updated my daily habit to 4 times a week, and then all previous record for this habit are gone, and leads to a broken steak. The last version of this app didn’t remove the previous record. Second, very ridiculous, the date is wrong. Tmr is shown as today. For example, today is 09/18 Wednesday, but the app shows today as 09/19 Thursday. This new version has soooo many bugs and I’m really done with it. I tried hard to keep my stripe, but now, after updating a habit, my steak is broken. I paid full year membership for this app. Can you just fix it and make my steak back?? Last but not the least, CAN YOU HIRE BETTER ENGINEER AND QA? I am a software Engineer, and I can’t even imagine how these obvious bugs were not caught before launch. I understand a small company has bias for action, so you may not have automation tests for GUI, but you guys must have QA right? How could they not catch the bugs? Also, IOS store takes at least two weeks to publish a new version of the app, so if there is anything that is broken on the GUI side, it’s really hard for you to fix in the short amount of time. Thinking about how large the customer impact will be, shouldn’t you be more careful? I’m just really upset about how unresponsible your engineers and QAs are.
Swindled into Paying $20 that is Apparently Non-Refundable
by t_c_987 on 2018/04/19 18:34
I downloaded the free trial of this app and while it’s got a nice principle function, there were some features the app was lacking, in my opinion. For that reason I didn’t want to purchase the app’s premium subscription. However, the developers did not make cancelling after the “free” trial easy to do. You have to cancel your subscription through a link that’s not easily found in the app, that takes you to the Apple support site and you have to cancel through that platform instead of within the app itself. If you do not cancel before the 7 day trial is up, you are automatically charged the premium subscription fee and that purchase cannot be canceled (ie no refund). Usually apps will refund the automatic charge if you cancel within a day or so of when the free trial ends. This was not the case, and I feel like I was swindled into paying $20 that is apparently non-refundable, which is extremely unsettling. Beware of this.
Trap of an app
by Nextiteration on 2019/10/17 01:56
I downloaded the app and deleted within an hour of messing around with the limited free trial functions. To my surprise, a week later I was charged for an entire year of the premium subscription. The developer is clearly taking advantage of fine-print subscription terms and people who value their time (might be this apps exact target audience...coincidence? I don’t think so). If you fall for this “trap of an app” by making both the mistake of initially downloading it and forgetting to unsubscribe from automatic renewals before deleting, you will need to request a refund from Apple Support as developers don’t have control over account payments - how convenient for them. My request for a refund was denied immediately despite going to support the day of the charge. I also submitted an accidental subscription renewal, and have yet to hear back or see my money returned. Until I do, or if I don’t, I won’t be using and/or trialing apps from this developer moving forward.
Good, but some issues
by Cmlucas on 2018/05/06 02:34
I like this app for what it is. I bought it fully a year ago and emailed some feedback which I think is important and easy to implement which still hasn’t seen its way through. I think that the ability to check something off every day even if you have met the “quota” for the week is important. For example if I have a goal to read 4x a week, I should still be able to at check it off 5-7x a week to reinforce my habit. Put in an option to have completed quotas greyed out at the bottom marking them as “done” but still doable. Also, the stream system needs to be fixed. If I make a habit today, then delete it, I cannot “finish” today. If I go back to yesterday and finish a weekly task and it eliminated it from today’s options, I cannot “finish” today. It ruins the streak. Ruins the whole reason of using the app.
Buggy, buggy, and oh yeah, BUGGY!!!
by JeepnickAZ on 2019/08/05 13:54
I downloaded this app and paid for a year subscription based on all the neat feature and thousands of positive reviews. After hours of setup and fine tuning of my habits I began to use it and thought it was pretty good. But then I tried to use the timer function for a habit. I had set the timer for a habit to 40 minutes and turned it on, and about m hour later I went in to check how much time was left since it felt like it had been too long. Turns out the timer doesn’t work it you leave the app or lock your phone. It just stops and then picks back up when you open the app again. I submitted feedback and was told they would consider adding the feature at some point. Why even bother in the first place guys? Then as I used the app more and more, I found my habits were starting to show up randomly as “Overdue,” even though ALL previous days habits were marked “Done,” or “Skipped.” So I reset the stats and started over. Then it happened again, and then again this morning. You can’t be productive, with Productive, because you will spend all your time trying to figure out why the app is behaving erratically. Year subscription? Guess I’ll chalk it up to a learning experience, delete the app and go back to Reminders, which is getting an overhaul in iOS 13 anyway. Enjoy the $30 guys, you won’t get another dime from me ever.
Perfect Encouragement!
by KSLadybug on 2019/09/16 15:48
The productive app has been something I’ve looked for for a long time. I can choose what to put into each and every day or what to put into one or two days a week the matter what my schedule might be like. Many apps do not allow you to choose different days of the week to be repeated. This one does. But what is most exciting to me about this app is that it is not pushy but is a gentle reminder and voice is very encouraging. I find it hard to make most of my goals during the day but I feel good about the ones I make and I don’t feel bad about the ones I missed. That has a lot to do with the total attitude of this app! Thank you for helping me. ☺️
Lacking simple features
by GeekyGirl007 on 2018/02/25 19:07
Reply to developer: Thank you for your reply to my review. However, I will not pay for a basic feature that most other apps give you for free. I have already deleted your app and replaced it with one that does pretty much everything your does and more without making me pay. I’m all for supporting developers, I know how much work goes into it, however I just can’t get behind it when it’s making people pay for something so basic that every other app on the market like it lets you do it for free. If this one thing were changed, I’d give a much better rating and even redownload it to give it another try. As it is now, I can recommend. I really wanted to love this app but you can’t choose a specific time to do your habit or task. You can not tell it to remind you at 1:00pm, for example. You can only say remind me morning, noon or night. Useless as a reminder app of it can’t do something as remind me at specific times.
Getting worse with every “update”
by ButMadNNW on 2019/09/17 06:33
I’ve been using this app since the “premium” version was a one-time optional payment. It was simple, clean, and did the job of counting how many times I completed a given task. Lately, it’s been degrading harshly as the developers try to add silly bells and whistles. - Items I have scheduled to do X days per week “break” their streak every Sunday. - Two items duplicated themselves for no reason. - All day today, since updating the app, “Today” has been tomorrow and everything I’ve yet to do today is marked as missed. Stop adding pointless “improvements” to an app that worked just fine before - you’re breaking it. I want my streaks to carry over week to week more than I want an annoying “way to go” pop-up every 50 item completions. UPDATE: I just changed how many times I wanted to do something in a week (which I do frequently with some items for my own reasons) and ALL my previous data for that task (HUNDREDS of completions) has been erased!! What are you doing?! UPDATE 2: Just had a reminder chime (at 23:30) for a task for which I never set a reminder. And there’s no way to delete it! You’ve completely broken what used to be a fine app. At this point, the only reason I haven’t given up on you is the hundreds- and thousands-long streaks of which I’d like to keep a record.
Expensive and only allows three alerts per day but good features
by ari@SF on 2018/04/12 04:37
I just started playing with this, it looks like it’s got a lot of interesting features but you can only set reminders three times a day, you can’t set it up to remind you every hour or every other hour. It’s got a $4/month subscription model so that’s not so exciting for such a small set of functionality. Honestly I think four dollars a year would be more competitive with other apps. I don’t mind some kind of ongoing fee because I know app development takes continuous work but I don’t think it’s gonna be worth this much to me. It does collect stats which is useful for me because I’m trying to keep track of how often I do short exercises a few times a day.
Less than a week and I’m hooked
by colorful.cole on 2018/02/16 17:30
I decided to just pay for a 6 month subscription instead of doing a week free to really to and be committed to my daily goals. I only work part time but still find the housework and daily tasks slipping away from me. Already after less than a week I have gotten more “thanks” from my boyfriend for helping deep clean more regularly. I have “tidy the house” every other day with deep cleaning specifics on the others. When you live with a neat person but are naturally more messy it can cause tension. This has helped so much! I have also been better about doing my daily yoga and I’ve read more this week then I have in the last month.
Great idea...
by Kanselmi on 2018/10/05 20:59
So the habits idea is great and love I can have a reminder for things that I have to do everyday. However, it would have been more helpful to also be able to schedule reminders that may not be an everyday item but an item that I need reminded to do next week. Also, you have a habit making a to do list but would again be helpful if you could also create the actual to do list in the app without creating individual habits for each item. Now I either make a choice of continue to use your app and also another app to accommodate those things or just leave your app I was excited about for one that accommodates everything in one place. I appreciate the 7 day trial because that’s what hooked me on the habits part. Great concept. Just a few flaws for me.
Really? Three free habits only?
by Yums3286 on 2018/09/06 00:29
I'd give this app 5 stars if only you could have at least a couple more habits for free. Now I have two separate apps for habit tracking: this and Google Calendar. At least Google Calendar's "Goals" is completely unlimited, but the thing is on that app I can't set these goals to remind me to do them on specific days. That's why I like this app. I also like this app because of the cute little icons you can put next to them and that you can assign a color for each of them. But this app would be more useful if I could put at least some more habit trackers here. If Google Calendar had the specific days feature, I'd only use that app. I was really excited about this app, and it could be a little more useful.
