Crashing and difficult to use sometimes
by DStins11 on 2021/01/16 07:01
App is somewhat difficulty to use: it erased all the habits I had previously saved and it now crashes every time I attempt to save a new habit. It wanted me to sign up for premium as well. Not sure why... App and phone (IPhone 12 iOS 14.3) is current as of today’s date. Don’t usually leave reviews. Wishing this would just work... will try other apps.
Needs Better Syncing
by menomade on 2021/01/15 19:59
Love everything about this app except that the account and syncing processes are complicated and don’t feel securely backed up. Would be 5 stars if the syncing and account process was seamless like most other popular apps that allow creating an account with your apple ID directly and across devices (instead of having to create an account through the web). Macbook version of the app would also be super useful.
Perfect
by JennieFP on 2021/01/14 13:32
This app is simple and fun to use. Great reminders to keep my ADHD brain going.
Too many ads
by uSEr15738629 on 2021/01/13 14:27
Wayyyy too many ads to sign up for premium. If I say I don’t want to upgrade to premium or try the free trial, I probably haven’t changed my mind 10 minutes later when another one pops up... Makes app unusable for the “free” features.
Not working
by Hshsjdjdjsjsjdjd on 2021/01/13 06:49
Bug closes the app every time I press “done” to create a new habit
Great app
by eddie l1 on 2021/01/12 23:08
Everything I need in a habit tracker
Just what I needed
by hdmiejdijcjdjd on 2021/01/12 13:14
This app is awesome. Nothing has helped me stay on track with the habits I want to develop more than this app.
Too many prompts to pay
by Ryan Lum on 2021/01/12 08:12
I tried on boarding onto this app but felt annoyed that it kept prompting me with deals to pay for the pro version. I wish it waited till I tried the app first but I got turned off by what initially seemed like a free app.
Happy with this app
by hannahbgoddess on 2021/01/12 06:16
I enjoy that it allows me to track my tasks and havits
Love it
by 624Okami on 2021/01/12 03:02
I really needed this app and it works so well I love the yo and the app feels really good
Ok, but not for me
by rigby321 on 2021/01/11 13:23
I get why people like this app, but call me old school, I prefer to write out my week’s goals and tick them off on paper. I don’t need an app to do that.
Worth every penny... or if it’s free you’re crazy if u don’t download.
by Billionunderthecouch on 2021/01/11 04:53
I’ve downloaded thousands of apps and beeen on iOS since the first metal one! I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve written a review. This app surprised me at how much it improved my overall quality of life( as long as I listen to its reminders)
This is amazing
by Courtney Goldsmith on 2021/01/10 02:21
Honestly I’m not one person to be on routine but this app seriously helps me. I deal with anxiety and forget that my health matters so this app helps me create a daily routine so I’m taking care of myself. I would give this app a 1000000/10 if i could! ❤️
Won't open
by zesty exuberance on 2021/01/09 15:08
Just installed the latest update, and it still won't start. What a waste. Glad I bought this app before they switched to their abusive subscription model. Really tired of app developers who don't care about providing commensurate service when they charge obscene subscription fees.
Exactly what I need!
by bz0676 on 2021/01/09 00:18
As a caregiver to my special needs son, this app is a lifesaver for staying organized and remembering the many necessary details of my day. Truly a wonderful app! (Only thing I can figure out is how to switch back to light mode from dark. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Have to pay
by DragonplaySucks on 2021/01/08 22:31
Trash app
Too complicated
by Whats new? on 2021/01/08 19:10
the main screen has a calendar, a bottom menu and whatever is left is for tasks (the reason you opened the app at the 1st place)
Not free: Don’t download if you don’t want to pay
by C.....H..... on 2021/01/08 17:25
If you plan to pay for their plan it might be useful, maybe, I don’t know since it was advertised as a free app to help with time management. It’s not. It was a complete waste of time and constant ads and requests to choose a payment plan. Just say you’re a paid app and don’t waste people’s time with your “free seven day trial” you know they’ll forget to cancel.
Doesn’t work. No free trial period.
by willow174 on 2021/01/08 03:11
No free trial. This thing won’t let you track
Pretty good except for the annoying subscription prompts
by DonaldM on 2021/01/06 19:24
This seems to get the job done as far as making it easy to Mark what’s been done and nagging/updating me a few times a day with what still needs to be done. The only thing I don’t like is that it constantly prompts me to subscribe, multiple times upon entering the app. It’s extremely annoying. Previously I had taken away 1 star for this but since it’s still an issue now it’s down another star. I’m up to my eyeballs in subscriptions these days. I’d prefer just buying the app.
User unfriendly
by Gamble007 on 2021/01/06 05:29
Would like to get a refund please
Habit builder not productivity tracker
by theydontwantyoutowin1 on 2021/01/05 17:37
This app is nice and flashy. I like the color scheme and method of habit building. It has nice coaching and tips. However, if you are looking for a place to make lists and keep track of to dos, keep looking.
Best task and habit app ever!
by trobbins26 on 2021/01/05 15:39
I have tried others and always come back to this one. It is the most Intuitive, and allows the most flexibility, and simplicity so that I’m not spending time finagling or struggling to set up or create tasks or habits the way I want. Good work! My day is way less stressful now!
Invasive privacy policy - glad it lost all my data
by Bmuse on 2021/01/04 16:02
I used to love this app. Nice UI and great use of icons. I even paid for the premium features. Then after the last update, ALL my data was lost. Habits, prefs, all gone. It found my Premium status, but lost everything else. So I had to delete the app and reinstall. When it walked through the setup, I decided to read the privacy policy. And wow, I’m glad I did. IMO, this app collects far more personal data than is needed for a habit-tracking app. Personal info, browsing, location, and more — even your unique device identifiers — AND SHARES IT. They’re part of a “family” of companies and share your data between them and with partners. And I couldn’t find any way to opt out. If someone needs to take meds, or exercise, or anything personal at all, I’m not okay with knowing they’re potentially sharing or selling my info to companies and ad networks and who knows what else. Productive has become unreasonably expensive for what it does. It’s just a habit tracker. And with their very invasive privacy policy, I won’t be using it. Make your own call, of course, but I urge you to read it. I deleted Productive, and will be looking at apps that specify that your information does not leave your device.
Great app...just missing a sync function between devices !
by ycrepet on 2021/01/04 11:01
Nice UX, good habits suggestions/recommendations, just missing a sync function between my iPad and my iPhone.

by cdggefdc on 2021/01/04 06:14
would be a 5 out of 5 if you could have more task but overall great app
Amazing ⭐️ 🌟 💫
by riley gagne on 2021/01/04 03:52
I live this I want to lose weight and it’s been SO helpful I wish I heard of this sooner I love this app!!!!!😆😁😄😃😊
Really organized and nice but....
by 🐶penelope🐼 on 2021/01/04 00:36
I really love this app and it makes me feel productive but, to have timed reminders you need a prescription. For anyone who uses this app a lot and has the prescription, just set a alarm on your phone instead.
Doesn’t work
by Jonah1e223 on 2021/01/03 17:03
The timer does not work after a few minutes, it ends up not logging the right amount of time. Irritated that I got the full version of this app, it’s not worth it unless they fix this.
Life changing
by kk plum on 2021/01/03 01:52
Is it dramatic to say it’s life changing? Because it is.
Can’t delete/edit habits
by scorpiomama789 on 2021/01/01 14:57
I wanted to delete and or edit certain habits and when I try to, it won’t save the edit or delete the habit. It’s frustrating. I would give the app 5 stars if I could do that. And yes, I’ve read all the instructions on how to do it and it still won’t work
Too many pop ups on first use
by sumsic281 on 2021/01/01 12:20
This app has way too many pop-ups (eg. get premium, here’s Santa’s gift??) on first use. Just let me try using your app first without all the extra steps!! But sadly there was too much friction and I went with a different app.
Abysmal privacy policy
by dpmitu on 2021/01/01 08:20
This app tracks way too much information (like your location) and sells it to advertisers. Read the privacy policy.
It’s not free
by Bposso on 2021/01/01 06:15
Only has a 7-day trial with AUTO Subscribe as soon as it ends. Why would they list it as free...
Fantastic app but the subscription cost is unrealistic
by sjsnww171727 on 2021/01/01 01:15
This is a incredibly well put together app. You won’t have a hard time believing it’s a stock Apple app. But the subscription cost is unrealistic in my opinion. $30 a year just to keep track of habit streaks? I think the developers are hurting themselves with that model. I would happily pay $5 or $10 one time to support the app, but the idea of a “subscription” is extremely off putting. I’ll stick with the free version.
Cool idea, terrible execution
by lj2387 on 2020/12/31 18:16
No matter how many times I try to get this app to sync across devices or share premium with family members, I can’t get it to work. Even after signing in with a web account, nothing happens. Shame, because I really want this to work
DOES NOT SYNC ACROSS DEVICES
by jtf777777777 on 2020/12/31 12:24
I can’t fathom such a dumb decision as to not have this app able to sync across a users devices. Such a basic oversight. I’m disappointed that I went and bought a subscription before realizing this. Apple should allow same day cancellations for situations like, this where you purchase a garbage app, not realizing it doesn’t meet the most basic of expectations. How productive is it that I can’t see my tasks on my iPhone and my iPad?
How do you actually check off a habit??
by TipsyElepahnt on 2020/12/31 03:17
This seems like such an unintuitive interface, how do I simply check off habits? Every time I go to check it off it just takes me to edit the habit.
Great app and great ui, but Limited
by hohummyawn on 2020/12/30 21:25
I love this app. It’s a great way to start a new habit or two; however, you can only have a few habits without having to pay. This makes this app just about pointless unless you only want to schedule one or two things a day
Don’t download!!
by richpearll on 2020/12/30 09:02
It makes you sign up for a subscription for as many habit/productive things I wouldn’t even rate it.
I used this app to build several habits
by Behruz1987 on 2020/12/29 22:17
Let’s be honest guys if you do. It follow through no app will help, just do it.
Not working
by Stone Qian on 2020/12/29 20:10
Stopped working after I updated to iOS 14.3 or subscribed software. Don’t which one is causing problems. Used to be good
If you have multiple devices, be wary
by Era-Vulgaris on 2020/12/29 14:24
I have an android tablet and an iPhone and wanted to sync my premium membership between the two devices as I use my tablet for all my productivity apps, however when reaching out to customer service I got this response: “Please note that Android and iOS are two different operative systems and therefore the accounts and purchases are not connected or synced in any way. Unfortunately, this means that there is no way to transfer the data between two different accounts at the moment due to how both App and Play Store work.” I have other apps that sync perfectly well between iOS and Android, they even have a web sign in that could easily link premium membership between two devices. Shame because I thoroughly enjoy this app but am quite unhappy with this practice.
Invasive
by MD253 on 2020/12/28 17:54
This app actually associates “user content” with your identification info. Which I believe means that my name and habits could be used for marketing purposes. Which is crazy on a paid service. Other todo apps don’t track this kind of info.
Stopped working and lost data
by Brokenalarm on 2020/12/28 16:17
The app stopped working and lost all my data. The developer refused to set up an account for me to hold my data in the future even though I already purchased the prime membership. The service is terrible and not trustworthy! Don’t buy!
Needs more challenges
by xSTruCx on 2020/12/28 05:15
I really enjoyed the 7 day challenges, there are exactly 9 challenges. Once you complete them, that’s it... the end. For example, the relationship challenge is cute (tasks you to leave a lovely note for your partner), I finished the 7 days, thereafter, I tried the relationship challenge again. To my surprise, it was asking me to repeat the same tasks. It would be great if the challenge continued with NEW ideas/tasks (I actually expected that give the price of the subscription, but that’s not the case). Hoping for an update...
Annoying
by OthmanMR on 2020/12/28 02:43
The first habit they want us to do is subscribing!!!
Horrible
by Chasityyyyyyyyyyyy on 2020/12/26 16:49
It’s the day after Christmas and this app just just took $32 out of my bank!!! I thought I had a day to unsubscribe. I didn’t even use it! Never again.
Nice design, but still very buggy.
by Estonia23 on 2020/12/26 15:33
I just paid for the 1 year subscriptions and started using it. Right away I notice some button don’t respond. Changes that I make doesn’t save.
Ads ruined the app for me before i could even use it
by distracted leaner on 2020/12/25 18:37
Constant ads on a productivity app probably isn’t the best for a productivity app! Let people USE the app and see if they enjoy it before you bombard them with ads.
Too much growth hacks effort
by JSong2020 on 2020/12/25 06:54
The app itself has no problem, but the team spends way too much time on growth hacks , Every single user interaction will tigger a modal, asking you to pay, asking you to rate, making the whole experience so broken.
Great app, but annoying as heck.
by MacOScrazy on 2020/12/25 05:43
This app is consistently bombarding you to UPGRADE TO GET FEATURES, literally every time you open the app. I want an app that works, I pay once and it works, not all this rigmarole. I am trying it for a couple of days but usually apps as annoying as this get deleted and not recommended to my friends and family.
Deleted all my habits twice
by Jack M Hoffman on 2020/12/24 19:39
First time I decided to start over give it another shot. Now they’ve been deleted again. Apparently too unreliable to trust with your data. edit: as suggested by dev I emailed them and was told they couldn’t help me get my data back because iCloud is not working with the app. Moved on to Streaks, which has backup for the data and habit history.
I LOVE IT
by Milana Lauren on 2020/12/24 18:16
This app is great! Unlike other apps all you have to do is set some goals and check them out once you do it! I thought it would take time out of my day but it makes it so easy to use on a daily basis, and it has challenges you can even do everyday of the week! And the app keeps me motivated to keep pushing those bad habits away. You can also choose if you want to try a pro version of the app which is where you have to pay but get more features on the app. But they also let you use it free which is awesome because some other apps like this only let you use it if you pay money, but this lets you both I would really recommend this app for helping you lose, gain, or just keep the same weight. There are some features that you can’t use unless you do premium but like I have already said it still works great😊 - Merry Christmas and a Happy New year 🥳 🎄

by dfijkoofrdbii on 2020/12/24 09:21
Didn’t say you have to subscribe on the advertising
I really wanted to like this app
by Nt1111 on 2020/12/23 02:36
Within 30 seconds of opening the app I was absolutely slammed with ads. I couldn’t even complete the tutorial without a full screen ad between each step. I was asked to upgrade to premium 3 times before I even knew what the app did. $7/month? Hey sure I don’t even know what I’m paying for great idea. I really wanted to like this app. I was excited to download and see how it worked. The UI screenshots looked great. I will definitely be looking elsewhere.
Changing task loses all history
by BMH292 on 2020/12/22 15:17
I like the app except for the fact that changing a task in any way will lose all history for that task AND not allow re-entry of that history. It would be much better to retain the history and simply restart the streak calculation from the date of the change. OR at least allow a user to re-enter the history. The app itself even suggests the user change their goals if not meeting them, which again would wipe out all history for that task. I consider this a ‘bug’ or poorly thought out function flaw. For now, be aware of this flaw and if you want to change a task goal while retaining history then create a new goal with a new name, still a pain because you will continue to see the old task entry on the reminders.... but at least you will be able to look at the calendar and still see what you have accomplished.
AMAZING APP!
by TuckMaNuck on 2020/12/22 14:09
Amazing app! Fairly substantial change in my life (for the better!)
This is not a free app
by Eltaaco on 2020/12/20 21:05
False ad it’s free. Once you tell them your goal you have to pay. There is one-week trial, but it’s not free.
Not good if your already broke
by Langstadt on 2020/12/20 16:25
It’s a shame because it would probably really help me but sadly everything has to be paid for in this life and I sadly am a young adult starting life and I’m broke right now, I wish I could get help becoming better but I have no extra money monthly for this
Great app, minor gripe
by fmiskuly19 on 2020/12/18 15:49
This is a great app. Great UI, functionality, it’s all there. My only gripe is that the verbiage in this app is focused around GOOD habits, whereas some of my habits are BAD habits that I’m tracking if I actually engaged in that habit or had a craving for it. So if I look at the calendar, it tells me to strive for “perfect days” where all my habits were completed. Or if I look at future days, it’ll say “go for it” under the habit. I don’t want to go for that habit. I just need to track if I did it. Maybe this could be solved by a toggle when creating a habit if it is good or bad? The obvious solution would be to use a bad habit app or tracker or something but I don’t just use this app for bad habits, I use it for working out, taking medicine, stopping smoking, etc. Like I said, this app is great, I just have this small issue with it.
Best app ever

I love it
4 Start
by basketball-girl4515 on 2020/12/17 22:07
I love this app it rlly helps with being productive and motivated but there is one thing I don’t like I don’t like that I have to pay for premium to do other things on the other apps but I am not paying 15 dollars just to be more productive that is ridiculous
eh
by okkkkkkboomer123456 on 2020/12/17 18:44
Good but annoying because it requires trials to do almost anything :(
Not worth it without in app purchases
by AllMyOtherChoicesWereTaken on 2020/12/17 00:54
Lot of adds not functional
Would be good
by MontanaGirl!! on 2020/12/16 06:29
I’m not going to pay $7 per month to use an app though.
Do Not Purchase
by JasonLaChanceee on 2020/12/15 19:15
Use the free version if you must but do not invest in this app. On my second yearly subscription I purchased it with iCloud sync working(not well but working). After taking a short break from the app and then upgrading phones it came to my attention that iCloud sync was now disabled. This pretty much meant that all of my habit history, over two years, was now gone. Not much help from customer service except that they removed iCloud sync because it wasn’t working well enough. Not a big purchase but would never purchase anything from them again. They can’t be trusted to deliver.
Costs money
by naumzu on 2020/12/14 23:08
I don’t like apps that demand a subscription
An app created by sadists
by Julietred on 2020/12/14 18:23
Update: I have written to customer support 5 times and they still have not resolved this issue. The most recent time is 12/13/2020. With this app if you don’t meet your goals this app tells you that you didn’t succeed and it suggests that you change your goals. It sends this message every —single — time you miss even one goal. It does it over and over again. I wrote to customer service for help. I asked them how to turn off the discouraging message. And their answer was “we’ll consider making that change in future upgrades.” Which, I guess is something. In the meantime they have made my money be wasted. This is what I wrote to customer service on the 5th try on 12/13/2020: I hate being told repeatedly by this app that my goal “streak” is broken. It isn’t. I just didn’t put it in the app. It’s a negative thing to say and it discourages my being productive. It’s a big thumbs down just when I’m opening my app to be productive. Please don’t write back again and say how you’ll let the developers know my feedback. Please try to get me a target date for fixing this. I paid good money for this app years ago and I really like it. It does exactly what I want. Except for this nasty, negative message that the developers added in 2019. Every time I get that negative comment about my streak being broken from this app it puts me in a sour mood. And I wanted to reach out and let the company that produces it know. This productivity app is harming my my ability to be productive.
Im glad this was a free trial
by felchat on 2020/12/13 21:46
Good idea. And great way to add new habits. But the price is a joke.
Please Read
by Dävïs on 2020/12/11 13:59
Hi, so I’m a freshman in high school, there’s a global pandemic going on. Life is stressful. This app has helped me so much. I can’t wait to continue on with it. It’s helps me take care of myself. I just wish you didn’t have to pay for so much of it. It would be tons better and more popular if it had less subscriptions.
New customer

Excellent App
Where are the widgets?
by Jkhjkibbg on 2020/12/09 12:16
Why are there no widgets yet for this app?
Excellent tool to develop positive habits
by Onmission9 on 2020/12/09 11:11
Solid app for the person who wants to be more intentional about establishing and tracking good habits.
Very nice
by TaylorPlayer on 2020/12/08 19:50
I use the app every day to keep track of medications I need to take and important habits I am trying to keep (or break). It’s well designed and a little bit fun to use. I recommend it.
Please put back the old widget/spotlight helper
by josh macintyre on 2020/12/08 16:31
Before the update I had it on my spotlight section (left of Home Screen) and I was able to check off the task as I did them and even expand them but now that there’s a widget it changed this section and the widget doesn’t do anything... I would love it if you made it so I could check them off again in spotlight section
Great app!

Need more icon colors!
Requires subscription
by Reciewer888 on 2020/12/08 06:10
Should disclose that you have to pay for features before you download the app. Disappointing
Charged despite canceling during the trial 😠
by Flowerfaerydee on 2020/12/07 21:17
I downloaded this app and made an account, adding my credit card as I created my profile. Though it said there was a free trial of seven days, I was just charged for the yearly price of $29.99. I wrote an email and was told to get a refund from Apple, but that is NOT who the bill went through because I put my billing info directly into the app. I’ve been waiting all day for another response and my refund, have spoken to my bank about it also. NOT pleased at all!!!
Worth the Money!
by sophers8182 on 2020/12/07 20:59
I downloaded the app when a special offer was going on and my price was $14.99 but the regular price is $29.99 but I’m telling you, it’s so worth it!! It helps me stay so organized with my ADHD and soothes my Anxiety. Otherwise the app isn’t that good without the special features. If you aren’t willing to spend the money, don’t get the app unless there’s one specific goal or habit you want to work on. I personally use this app to plan my day with more order and it’s easier to manage.

Stuck on Update in Progress
by PFausti on 2020/12/05 02:07
Waited a long time to update as I saw from others comments that it wouldn’t open after an update. My mistake. Now I am in the same predicament. It says “Update in Progress, this may take a moment” but can’t get past that.
The free version is ...

It’s amazing
by Miko Takahashi on 2020/12/02 13:34
I just had this for a week and I’m already addicted it has helped me so much, and I will buy the more access thing and I hope this would help me a lot more. I love it you should get it it’s amazing!!
Pretty good so far!
by Goodie(: on 2020/12/02 12:44
I really like the app so far! I like that I can have as many habits that I want with the subscription. I would like it even more if it had a widget that allowed me to check things off on my Home Screen like “Streaks” does.
PLEASE ME IT A WIDGET
by Ig: x3xSlimm 🏀🔥 on 2020/11/30 19:55
It would help a lot if this was a widget 🥲
Not free!
by ChaosOchoa on 2020/11/30 04:09
Says free but it’s not. This app tries to guess your life. Too much things to get through.
I want to love it
by Andrew_elias on 2020/11/28 15:00
I had purchased the premium membership a long time ago when they first launched the product. So the app tells me I have a premium membership but it is awfully integrated. I feel I get zero benefits. The cross-platform integration is so bad. Habits I start or check on my iPad Pro don’t update update on my iPhone and Apple Watch and vice versa. ugh. Please fix this and I’ll come back.
Can’t find how to confirm “done”?
by Kalakaua1 on 2020/11/28 07:05
Where are the basic directions ? I’m admittedly not very tech savvy but so far this app has been a waste of money Yes I managed to set the goals but after I accomplish them it tells me at the end of the day that I did “not achieve” my goal ?
Excellent
by mrnmrshouston on 2020/11/27 11:12
Been wanting to find an app like this for a long time. Great and simple to use since I procrastinate a lot. Thanks!
Great App
by yrjdjdbfbdj on 2020/11/25 20:23
Easy and simplistic! The perfect app to effectively track habits.
Widget ?

If it isn’t a widget you guys should make it one but it’s really nice app !!
App Interface Feedback
by ajoooooooosiooo on 2020/11/22 20:34
I love this App. It’s really helping me complete the day to day tasks I need in order to keep my depression under control. The one piece of feedback I have is that it would be great to have the option to select different interface colors and designs. The black interface can be hard on the eyes and also makes me a little sad. Thanks and keep up the great work!!
Not organized
by Radou7 on 2020/11/22 17:13
Not very organized. When I search for goal setting apps this is the first one that pops up, but it’s really not a big picture goal setting app, it’s a very narrowed habit setting app. Nothing wrong with that but I’d like to be able to see my big picture goals (lose 50 pounds by 7/16/20) and then within that category set all the mid range goals and habits I need to create to reach that goal. If you set up a habit then that just goes to your daily tracker where everything is kept. It’s a long laundry list of things to do. It would be helpful to have the ability to categorize your list. So, when I open “today” I might see the category of “lose 50lbs” and then inside of that all the things I need to do today to reach that goal. Also, they do have “challenges” that you can join that is similar to what I’m referencing above but there does seem to be a way to create a custom challenge or even to just remove the ones that they have. It would be nice to have full control to customize what I want to do.
Great app but
by Macmelody on 2020/11/22 16:37
Great app. I like this app a lot, on my iPad. But, it doesn’t synced with my iPhone? Why? Double the work. My phone is big, but I like using my iPad and iWatch. If this app won’t sync, what good will it do me?
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.
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!
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.
The First Steps are Simple With the App
by K-Bernard on 2020/07/19 11:36
Hey all, After thinking for a little bit of time of when I would start my habits and good motivation to do it, it was not until this app that I really started doing much. I see this app as a rehabilitations skill builder in habits in a way that moves my inspiration to want to do habits a lot simpler. I find myself adding goals every day and it’s consistently interesting to see how much I want to accomplish vs how much I would accomplish. It’s peaceful to know I use this as a guide and I realized it also clears my mind to write it all down. Didn’t realized how much in a day there is to do, but how much you can do within a given time (I.e thirty minutes blocks can get so much done. Anyway I won’t over express myself here. But I think all should give this a try, I found an objective benefit to using it and I do have a subjective view on it since I used it. But if you want to move forward with organization with your habits and decrease Brian focus on your habits and build more accountability for yourself, I recommend this app! Thanks all, All the best!
Latest update has terrible UX
by Gggghfjtfugvbnk on 2020/06/25 03:46
Edit: Updating back to 5 stars because the UX has been improved, I’m sure many people enjoy the fancy UI but there is now an option to have a no frills. I have had some issues with habit data not saving properly for the current day, though, when checking habits off sometimes Old review: I agree with some other reviews I’ve seen: this was an update for the sake of updating. It has “fixed” things that were not broken to begin with. The UI used to be minimal and easy to use day to day, but now forces its paradigm of time-of-day habits. Sure, I have some habits for the evening, but a lot of anyone’s habits aren’t strictly for one time of day. It is more difficult now to just get this app to show me what I want—a simple list of my habits for the day. All day habits are now all the way to the left, the app has unneeded animations for what it is (essentially just a simple to do list style app), and the bottom bar UI now centers on adding a new habit, which is one of the actions I’ve used the least. This is making me regret subscribing to this. Maybe I can find a different app that is just simple and elegant, and doesn’t get in my way.
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.
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.
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.
Great UI but buggy (updated: might be iOS issue)
by cephvar on 2020/06/10 04:22
It’s pretty intuitive at first, but when you get deeper into customization, you run into oddities and bugs. For example, it seems to be pretty aggressive about resetting streaks when you make edits to habits (understandable, but the rules around this could be more clear). You edit a habit name, and it reorders it. Sometimes things don’t get saved. Sometimes they get reordered at seemingly unpredictable times. And worse, I’ve only just fully set up a bunch of habits, and all of a sudden my Today shows up blank, rendering the app useless because I can’t actually see or complete the habits I spent so much time setting up. It worked well when it was working, but I am less than a month into using Productive and now it’s broken. Update: Rebooting my iOS device seemed to fix the issue so I just raised my original rating to 4. I also had noticed another app having issues (Alarmy wasn’t showing an alarm going off), so I’m tentatively chalking at least the major issue above to an iOS problem and not a Productive one. Will report back if other issues persist or not.
Well designed with spotty execution
by thadangazone on 2019/11/30 14:27
I’ve been using this app (with premium features) for years because I haven’t found another app that is as good as this one for tracking habits. That being said I’ve looked long and hard for an alternative. My issues with the app are 1) in that it has below average integration across devices. I have an iPad and it doesn’t load all of the habits from the phone into the tablet. It will load some but not all. It also takes forever (if it will do it at all) to sync with me marking a habit on one device. Example. I marked a habit complete around midday on the phone and the iPad app never registered it so it still showed up as incomplete in the iPad. And 2) if you’re relying on it for an accurate “perfect streak” count look elsewhere or track with a red X on a calendar. You can have a million perfect days in a row and the app arbitrarily decides to not track some days in the streak. Which is weird because the counter for “days complete” is accurate but the streak counter is completely random. Again. Best I’ve found and does a lot of things right. But I’ve also been looking for an alternative for a while.
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.
It’s okay, some flaws
by Satanscrush on 2020/08/02 15:39
This app IS helpful, as I have started many challenges, and keeping up with them! However, what is really annoying about this app is that if you don’t mark at the end of the day that you have completed the challenge for that day—it automatically starts you over again and says that you failed the challenge. It feels terrible—especially when you are actually doing the challenge and have been for a full week! Please change this. It’s incredible frustrating to keep having to pledge over and over again, especially when I know I haven’t broken the pledge! Perhaps make a notification when you open the app that says “I noticed that you didn’t check in last night, how is the challenge going?” And then gives you the option to say “still going strong” or “I slipped, let’s start over”. I’ve been on the intermittent fasting challenge for almost a week now and in my app it says 0 because I forgot to swipe the challenge last night. It’s just very frustrating. Please fix this. Not everyone is going to have this app chained to their hip, we have lives.
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.
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.”
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
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.
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. :)
Free version is unusable
by ConeyQ on 2020/06/18 21:02
This app bills itself as a free app with optional in-app purchases, but that’s a complete misrepresentation. The app is almost unusable without a subscription. It’s a complete money grab. Literally every time you navigate away from it or change screens, it directs you to pay for a subscription. The subscription page that pops up every five seconds is set up in a misleading way that indicates a “free trial” (that auto-subscribes you for a full year’s price) is the only option to continue using the app for free. You can X out of the subscription page in the top left corner without agreeing to the trial, but people who aren’t tech literate won’t realize that. I downloaded the app because my mother wanted to use it but couldn’t get it to work. As soon as I saw the subscription page, I asked my mother if she’d known she could skip it without starting a trial, and she told me no, she’d hit the obvious yellow button that said “free trial” instead. I helped her cancel her subscription and delete the app. There are much more functional free productivity apps out there that run on ads without tricking people into thinking they need a recurring subscription to use them.
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!
Pretty Great BUT could be SUPER
by BREanna•) on 2020/02/25 00:16
This is my first time ever writing a review for anything... so... that’s says something. This app is good but to blow every other app out the water there should be where you can set a location and then a timer to when to do a task when you arrive at the location. For example 30 minutes after I get home a remind would go off to tell me I need to do something. Also it would be really cool if there was where you can set a timer and in the timer it has breaks, for example you work for 30 minutes relax for 30 and then work for 30 that would be really great instead of making multiple timers or resetting it. Another idea would be if you can put reminders after one another, for example once you do one task another task would pop up for you to do next and would make it even better if it starts blank minutes after you get to a location.
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.
The Limit
by iamSHPOON on 2020/07/12 13:31
Wow whoever created this app deserves a high five. This app is exactly what I needed my entire life. I always can get distracted so this was perfect. Any app can get a five star rating from a satisfied costumer but, there’s always one flaw. This app is amazing but my one complaint is the limit. You are only allowed a certain amount of habits and that makes sense but it’s too low for me. I only had like 5 things on my list but then it said I reached the limit? It makes sense to me that if you want unlimited habits you have to pay for premium but if you guys are going to set a limit on habits don’t make it 5. If you could change it to like maybe 10 that would be amazing 😉. I get it if you don’t have premium on this app you won’t make 💰 but can you just boost up the habit limit that would be phenomenal! I love this app so much and I’m not talking bad about the creator. Thank you so much to who ever made this app! Thank you! - very satisfied customer (except for the limit part)
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
I LOVE IT
by Milana Lauren on 2020/12/24 18:16
This app is great! Unlike other apps all you have to do is set some goals and check them out once you do it! I thought it would take time out of my day but it makes it so easy to use on a daily basis, and it has challenges you can even do everyday of the week! And the app keeps me motivated to keep pushing those bad habits away. You can also choose if you want to try a pro version of the app which is where you have to pay but get more features on the app. But they also let you use it free which is awesome because some other apps like this only let you use it if you pay money, but this lets you both I would really recommend this app for helping you lose, gain, or just keep the same weight. There are some features that you can’t use unless you do premium but like I have already said it still works great😊 - Merry Christmas and a Happy New year 🥳 🎄
Do NOT trust this app for long term goals
by eag_app_review_nickname on 2020/03/28 03:25
If you want an app that you can trust with your personal growth, this is not the app. I used this app to track some very personal and meaningful growth, with over 820 days (that's over 2 years!) of perfect days. I succeeded in meeting my goals Every. Single. Day. for more than two years. What happened? Apalon made an update and wiped my data. I'm now back at zero. I'm devastated. My stomach is in my throat. Do not make the mistake I did in trusting them with your goals. Do not trust them to track your progress. Use Google calendar, or a physical journal, or anything else. Do not trust them long term. It might work today, or day 800, but eventually you will wake up and find your progress gone and with it your sense of accomplishment! Note: I did reach out to support. They replied after a day, saying "We're working on it." From there I didn't hear from them. I have emailed them two more times, without a word back, which was over a week ago. I'm beyond heartbroken. Again, do not trust this app for any of your long term goals, you will regret it. Eventually they will destroy your data.
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
Glitches, crashes, poor sync across devices
by Jartin mcfartin on 2020/05/11 22:31
I’ve been using this app for about a year and half now and I’ve had many problems. Nothing just works how its supposed to. My completed tasks aren’t being synced across my devices, so if I click completed on my Apple Watch or iPhone, my iPad won’t reflect it, and vice versa. Sometimes it will sync one completion here or there but its very unreliable. I can mark every task completed on my iPad and hours later my iPhone has only realized I’ve completed one or two tasks. My devices haven’t even synced some completions from a month ago. This defeats the purpose of having it on separate devices if they won’t sync properly... as well as the whole idea of tracking habits. On to the next problem: the sometimes working Apple Watch app. Probably 50% of the time the Apple Watch app is non-responsive or just crashes when you open it. I’ve had days where I can’t open the app on the Apple Watch. Yes... everything is updated and my settings are set to sync across devices... things just don’t work. I can’t believe I’ve paid for two years of service that works this poorly.
My best recovery tool!
by Call me Poncho on 2020/09/01 02:57
As a recovering drug addict I have always found it hard to crest good habits. Starting bad ones has never been an issue. My sponsor suggested that I make a master schedule for more day which was a great idea other than having it in my notebook which I don’t always have access to. This app has allowed me with great ability to input my entire day. Literally from waking up, work, step work, family time. Everything! And having the reminders along with the positive messages spread through the entirety of this app, is a wonderful moral boost. It also helps me check back regularly and I am able to keep up with each task so I know if I missed something and need to catch up. This app is a literal life saver for me. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to the entire development team that touched this app!!
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.
GREAT!! But this could have been a five star
by xXWolfygiRl on 2020/07/09 02:45
I usually don’t write reviews, but when I saw the rate button I thought, “I’m not gonna sit this one out.” So I’m writing this report to say this app is GREAT and PRETTY MUCH what I was looking for... pretty much. But, to make it EXACTLY what I was looking for: I don’t like how you need to have the premium to be able to get notifications. That was the app I was looking for in the first place, but since I didn’t want to buy the premium I got another app that would give me the notifications. All the other things you included in the app, I completely understand why they cost money, but if you want another perfect 5-star review please I remove the notifications at a certain time from the premium and make it free. Otherwise, in my personal opinion this deserves a four-star review. Great app, could be better. Developers if you saw this, thank you so much for taking the time to read my review.
Great User Interface and Habit/Goal Setup Option But lacks good Stats
by RTM is an Excellent App on 2020/03/22 00:50
The user interface is probably one of the better ones I’ve tried and intuitive user engagement. Good Options in habit/goal domains with icons and colors, but no tags so i can filter or sort categories how i want them. However I think for the price compared to some it lacks a lot on various informative calendar views/stats. All it gives you is if you got all your goals done in a day and what those streaks are. I think for habits it is better to see overall how you are doing on a daily, weekly, monthly basis for either each habit/goal and entire summary fo all. Also, there should be option to better visually see the Habit For SKIP, or FAIL. I think good app for some that don’t need to see useful calendar stats in a few intuitive views. If you Update your calendar/stat view options similar to Habit Bull or Way of Life I will come back as those other apps lack in fun user interface.
Awesome app, latest update disappointing
by Tracy369963 on 2019/12/22 16:53
This app really helps lower my stress level. I have a lot of administrative tasks to do at work plus a complicated schedule for doing my physical therapy exercises. I was always worried about forgetting something or trying to keep the different days schedule straight in my head. It took a while (and a little planning) to set up, but once set up there’s little to do. Now I relax and just check things off. This app is so customizable, you can separate the work and home tasks (afternoon and evening), have different tasks on different days and put the tasks in any order you want. I would give it 5/5 stars but the new update is not working properly. The slider to mark done and skip hangs frequently, so the task still appears undone. And I preferred the old listing because you could see more tasks at once, since I use this on my iPhone, I have a small screen and I have to scroll more now.
TERRIBLE REDESIGN - don’t install the new version if you haven’t!!!
by kckm32 on 2019/12/21 00:25
I have used the premium version of the app for years & loved it. I always gave it 5 stars and it was a crucial part of my day. Prior to today, my only complaint was that the updates would randomly delete habits or reset to some I had years ago, but since had deleted. Frustrating, but a rare and manageable problem. Today I’m literally in tears because I’m so frustrated and hate the new update. Wasted space and inefficient - I want to be able to see my anytime habits on the same page with the time of day - I DON’T WANT OR NEED A PICTURE OF THE SUN’S POSITION IN THE SKY TAKING UP HALF THE SCREEN!!!!! I don’t want to swipe left and right a thousand times (while accidentally marking tasks as completed or skipped because it’s the same motion)!!! I’m hoping there’s a way to restore the previous version - It has become such an integral part of my routine, but I can’t and won’t use it with the new layout. I find it much more cumbersome & difficult to use. PLEASE ROLLBACK OR PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION!!!!!!
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.
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!
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.
Really good but could be better
by Yo Kai Watch FAN!!! on 2020/08/03 15:16
I’ve been using this app over the Summer and even paid to unlock more habits and let me say it is very useful. The look of the app is perfect, the amount of icons are great, and it helps me get things done throughout the day. But the reason I give it a 3/5 is because I think there’s still plenty of room for improvement. One thing that I think would improve the app experience A LOT is the addition of a fourth option to repeat both a habit or one time task, WHENEVER. This would actually be amazing, to have the choice to not have to do a habit daily, weekly, or monthly, but just whenever you want. I’d like to be able to log some habits whenever I’d like to, without them affecting my streak, and still be able to track how often I do said habit. And I’d like to be able to do some tasks whenever I choose. Either way the app is still pretty good👍
Clean, Simple, Effective with One Design Flaw
by penguin_player on 2019/12/03 06:06
Productive is a simple app for building effective habits. It easily lets you create custom, repeating to do lists and track your completion. It was exactly what I was looking for without anything I did not want. My only complaint is that several months ago they added the feature to see what tasks are due tomorrow, but those tasks cannot be completed until tomorrow. While this makes some sense, the app has no problem letting you complete tasks after the day they were due. I like this feature and use it to catch up when I fall behind, but I hate that I can’t get even a day ahead when I know I have a busy stretch coming up. It’s almost as if the app is subtly designed to support you when you fall behind, which is great, but not encourage you to proactively avoid falling behind in the first place, which is unfortunate.
Doesn’t sync with all devices, pricey
by Tyler2406 on 2020/03/26 06:56
This is a decent little app. Nice layout and user friendly, however my biggest complaint is lack of syncing across devices. I spent a lot of time creating all my habits from my phone and being that I use my iPad heavily, I wanted to be able to also bring them up on my iPad. It’s not a bad app by any means but for the steep price you pay for such a simple habit tracker, I do expect more features and functionality packed in. In my honest opinion, this app is not worth the subscription. Maybe so if it was half the price, maybe.. if it was a one time purchase, then yes I’d consider it worth it. I’ll check in in the future for further updates as well as a review. You’ve got a great start, but please consider adding more or other features to make it feel worth the price. I can track any one of these things easily with other free apps that already have this built in to their suite of other features.
It was my go-to for years! Until...
by jardysantiago on 2019/11/18 15:06
I’ve had this app since 2016. It really helped me get back on my feet during a difficult time, so to me, it was a game changer. It was one of my most reliable apps, but alas it has one major flaw that made me look elsewhere for a habit tracker 4 years later. Recently I got an iPad and two Apple Watches, and the syncing between devices just wasn’t smooth at all. Sometimes it didn’t happen altogether. The iPad was left out most of the time, and when that happened, it usually ended in habits being duplicated on all the devices. It also took some effort to get it to sync when I switched watches in the morning - on the watch it would say “syncing” and nothing would happen until I messed with it on my iPhone. This process would take me 10+ minutes. Overall, this is a great app if you only use it on one device, but across several devices, some major bugs still need to be fixed.
Used to be good app
by photonslave on 2020/02/19 17:10
Update(19-feb) : It’s been three weeks since the sorting habits is broken . After spending a long valuable time sorting the habits , it’s really unacceptable to see them go back to random order again . How long will it take it fix issues which were once working fine ? Original review : I am a paid member of the app for a few Months now and been a regular user . The app used to be simple and very useful , where you can create new habits and sort it with ease, I used as my reference to get an idea of how my day must be sequenced. . A recent update completely broke the sorting functionality and completely jumbled up all the habits that I had kept sorted until now . I contacted support and reported this . I got a response on how to fix it again . I spent 30 mins to sort all the habits manually once again as it was broken by the update. But once I went to another screen in the app and back , the sorting went away again and it’s all jumbled up again . This is Extremely careless of them especially for something people pay lots of money for. Another clear indicator of their carelessness is when you go read their version history - none of them describe what the actual changes in the new version is . They copy paste the same genetic description for every version . Updated: Tried twice more to reorder my habits , and it again went back to jumbled state . I have spent 1 hr so far just to sort the habits but giving up
Great App, Terrible Updates
by covlar on 2020/10/17 00:02
I’ve been using this app for years, and paid for premium back when it was a flat fee. I want to make it clear that the app itself has really helped me a lot with my ADHD and overall executive function, and the flat fee (not subscription) has been worth it. However the fact that the app is completely unusable (wont even open!) for like a week or more after each update is unreal. I figured out that this was the case years ago, so have consistently delayed updating for at least a few weeks after each update release on habit (ha). However, I accidentally updated a mere week after release this time....and now the app once again won’t even open for me. While forgivable for a fairly new product team, it’s crazy that this is still the case ~a week after an update years later. Why not roll back a version so we at least have something workable to use in the meantime? Also don’t release updates until they’ve been extensively verified and tested for bugs.
Good idea, buggy implementation, annoying “resets”
by marioshadj on 2020/04/02 16:36
I downloaded the app earlier in January, and really liked it on my iPhone so I ended up buying the annual subscription to get the extra features. I really like how it keeps track of my habits and reminds me to do stuff, but I find it very inflexible in terms of changing your habits as you go (which I would think is a very valid use case). Say, for example, you start with do something x times a week; after a while, you may want to do that more frequently. The app lets you change that, but then seems to delete all the previous entries (with a non-so-specific prompt because it tells you it will “update the stats”, not that it will “delete the stats”), which is pretty infuriating. I would rather it resets the stats but keeps the entries if it cannot handle different stats for different periods of time (based on goal changes). Outside of the resetting-habits issue, there is another issue which makes it a bit more annoying to use: the app never syncs with my other devices (iPad) through iCloud, even though the setting is supposedly “on”, on both iPad and iPhone, tried to enable/disable a few times to no avail, and email support wasn’t that helpful in telling me to try things they have in the FAQ section which I’ve already tried before contacting them. Especially considering this is a paid app (can’t really think that most people can effectively use the free version), I would expect some higher quality there.

Crashing and difficult to use sometimes
by DStins11 on 2021/01/16 07:01
App is somewhat difficulty to use: it erased all the habits I had previously saved and it now crashes every time I attempt to save a new habit. It wanted me to sign up for premium as well. Not sure why... App and phone (IPhone 12 iOS 14.3) is current as of today’s date. Don’t usually leave reviews. Wishing this would just work... will try other apps.
Needs Better Syncing
by menomade on 2021/01/15 19:59
Love everything about this app except that the account and syncing processes are complicated and don’t feel securely backed up. Would be 5 stars if the syncing and account process was seamless like most other popular apps that allow creating an account with your apple ID directly and across devices (instead of having to create an account through the web). Macbook version of the app would also be super useful.
Perfect
by JennieFP on 2021/01/14 13:32
This app is simple and fun to use. Great reminders to keep my ADHD brain going.
Too many ads
by uSEr15738629 on 2021/01/13 14:27
Wayyyy too many ads to sign up for premium. If I say I don’t want to upgrade to premium or try the free trial, I probably haven’t changed my mind 10 minutes later when another one pops up... Makes app unusable for the “free” features.
Not working
by Hshsjdjdjsjsjdjd on 2021/01/13 06:49
Bug closes the app every time I press “done” to create a new habit
Great app

Everything I need in a habit tracker
Just what I needed
by hdmiejdijcjdjd on 2021/01/12 13:14
This app is awesome. Nothing has helped me stay on track with the habits I want to develop more than this app.
Too many prompts to pay
by Ryan Lum on 2021/01/12 08:12
I tried on boarding onto this app but felt annoyed that it kept prompting me with deals to pay for the pro version. I wish it waited till I tried the app first but I got turned off by what initially seemed like a free app.
Happy with this app

Ok, but not for me
by rigby321 on 2021/01/11 13:23
I get why people like this app, but call me old school, I prefer to write out my week’s goals and tick them off on paper. I don’t need an app to do that.
Worth every penny... or if it’s free you’re crazy if u don’t download.
by Billionunderthecouch on 2021/01/11 04:53
I’ve downloaded thousands of apps and beeen on iOS since the first metal one! I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve written a review. This app surprised me at how much it improved my overall quality of life( as long as I listen to its reminders)
This is amazing
by Courtney Goldsmith on 2021/01/10 02:21
Honestly I’m not one person to be on routine but this app seriously helps me. I deal with anxiety and forget that my health matters so this app helps me create a daily routine so I’m taking care of myself. I would give this app a 1000000/10 if i could! ❤️
Won't open
by zesty exuberance on 2021/01/09 15:08
Just installed the latest update, and it still won't start. What a waste. Glad I bought this app before they switched to their abusive subscription model. Really tired of app developers who don't care about providing commensurate service when they charge obscene subscription fees.
Exactly what I need!
by bz0676 on 2021/01/09 00:18
As a caregiver to my special needs son, this app is a lifesaver for staying organized and remembering the many necessary details of my day. Truly a wonderful app! (Only thing I can figure out is how to switch back to light mode from dark. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Have to pay

Trash app
Too complicated
by Whats new? on 2021/01/08 19:10
the main screen has a calendar, a bottom menu and whatever is left is for tasks (the reason you opened the app at the 1st place)
Not free: Don’t download if you don’t want to pay
by C.....H..... on 2021/01/08 17:25
If you plan to pay for their plan it might be useful, maybe, I don’t know since it was advertised as a free app to help with time management. It’s not. It was a complete waste of time and constant ads and requests to choose a payment plan. Just say you’re a paid app and don’t waste people’s time with your “free seven day trial” you know they’ll forget to cancel.
Doesn’t work. No free trial period.
by willow174 on 2021/01/08 03:11
No free trial. This thing won’t let you track
Pretty good except for the annoying subscription prompts
by DonaldM on 2021/01/06 19:24
This seems to get the job done as far as making it easy to Mark what’s been done and nagging/updating me a few times a day with what still needs to be done. The only thing I don’t like is that it constantly prompts me to subscribe, multiple times upon entering the app. It’s extremely annoying. Previously I had taken away 1 star for this but since it’s still an issue now it’s down another star. I’m up to my eyeballs in subscriptions these days. I’d prefer just buying the app.
User unfriendly
by Gamble007 on 2021/01/06 05:29

Habit builder not productivity tracker
by theydontwantyoutowin1 on 2021/01/05 17:37
This app is nice and flashy. I like the color scheme and method of habit building. It has nice coaching and tips. However, if you are looking for a place to make lists and keep track of to dos, keep looking.
Best task and habit app ever!
by trobbins26 on 2021/01/05 15:39
I have tried others and always come back to this one. It is the most Intuitive, and allows the most flexibility, and simplicity so that I’m not spending time finagling or struggling to set up or create tasks or habits the way I want. Good work! My day is way less stressful now!
Invasive privacy policy - glad it lost all my data
by Bmuse on 2021/01/04 16:02
I used to love this app. Nice UI and great use of icons. I even paid for the premium features. Then after the last update, ALL my data was lost. Habits, prefs, all gone. It found my Premium status, but lost everything else. So I had to delete the app and reinstall. When it walked through the setup, I decided to read the privacy policy. And wow, I’m glad I did. IMO, this app collects far more personal data than is needed for a habit-tracking app. Personal info, browsing, location, and more — even your unique device identifiers — AND SHARES IT. They’re part of a “family” of companies and share your data between them and with partners. And I couldn’t find any way to opt out. If someone needs to take meds, or exercise, or anything personal at all, I’m not okay with knowing they’re potentially sharing or selling my info to companies and ad networks and who knows what else. Productive has become unreasonably expensive for what it does. It’s just a habit tracker. And with their very invasive privacy policy, I won’t be using it. Make your own call, of course, but I urge you to read it. I deleted Productive, and will be looking at apps that specify that your information does not leave your device.
Great app...just missing a sync function between devices !
by ycrepet on 2021/01/04 11:01
Nice UX, good habits suggestions/recommendations, just missing a sync function between my iPad and my iPhone.

Really organized and nice but....
by 🐶penelope🐼 on 2021/01/04 00:36
I really love this app and it makes me feel productive but, to have timed reminders you need a prescription. For anyone who uses this app a lot and has the prescription, just set a alarm on your phone instead.
Doesn’t work
by Jonah1e223 on 2021/01/03 17:03
The timer does not work after a few minutes, it ends up not logging the right amount of time. Irritated that I got the full version of this app, it’s not worth it unless they fix this.
Life changing
by kk plum on 2021/01/03 01:52
Is it dramatic to say it’s life changing? Because it is.
Can’t delete/edit habits
by scorpiomama789 on 2021/01/01 14:57
I wanted to delete and or edit certain habits and when I try to, it won’t save the edit or delete the habit. It’s frustrating. I would give the app 5 stars if I could do that. And yes, I’ve read all the instructions on how to do it and it still won’t work
Too many pop ups on first use
by sumsic281 on 2021/01/01 12:20
This app has way too many pop-ups (eg. get premium, here’s Santa’s gift??) on first use. Just let me try using your app first without all the extra steps!! But sadly there was too much friction and I went with a different app.
Abysmal privacy policy
by dpmitu on 2021/01/01 08:20
This app tracks way too much information (like your location) and sells it to advertisers. Read the privacy policy.
It’s not free
by Bposso on 2021/01/01 06:15
Only has a 7-day trial with AUTO Subscribe as soon as it ends. Why would they list it as free...
Fantastic app but the subscription cost is unrealistic
by sjsnww171727 on 2021/01/01 01:15
This is a incredibly well put together app. You won’t have a hard time believing it’s a stock Apple app. But the subscription cost is unrealistic in my opinion. $30 a year just to keep track of habit streaks? I think the developers are hurting themselves with that model. I would happily pay $5 or $10 one time to support the app, but the idea of a “subscription” is extremely off putting. I’ll stick with the free version.
Cool idea, terrible execution
by lj2387 on 2020/12/31 18:16
No matter how many times I try to get this app to sync across devices or share premium with family members, I can’t get it to work. Even after signing in with a web account, nothing happens. Shame, because I really want this to work
DOES NOT SYNC ACROSS DEVICES
by jtf777777777 on 2020/12/31 12:24
I can’t fathom such a dumb decision as to not have this app able to sync across a users devices. Such a basic oversight. I’m disappointed that I went and bought a subscription before realizing this. Apple should allow same day cancellations for situations like, this where you purchase a garbage app, not realizing it doesn’t meet the most basic of expectations. How productive is it that I can’t see my tasks on my iPhone and my iPad?
How do you actually check off a habit??
by TipsyElepahnt on 2020/12/31 03:17
This seems like such an unintuitive interface, how do I simply check off habits? Every time I go to check it off it just takes me to edit the habit.
Great app and great ui, but Limited
by hohummyawn on 2020/12/30 21:25
I love this app. It’s a great way to start a new habit or two; however, you can only have a few habits without having to pay. This makes this app just about pointless unless you only want to schedule one or two things a day
Don’t download!!
by richpearll on 2020/12/30 09:02
It makes you sign up for a subscription for as many habit/productive things I wouldn’t even rate it.
I used this app to build several habits
by Behruz1987 on 2020/12/29 22:17
Let’s be honest guys if you do. It follow through no app will help, just do it.
Not working
by Stone Qian on 2020/12/29 20:10
Stopped working after I updated to iOS 14.3 or subscribed software. Don’t which one is causing problems. Used to be good
If you have multiple devices, be wary
by Era-Vulgaris on 2020/12/29 14:24
I have an android tablet and an iPhone and wanted to sync my premium membership between the two devices as I use my tablet for all my productivity apps, however when reaching out to customer service I got this response: “Please note that Android and iOS are two different operative systems and therefore the accounts and purchases are not connected or synced in any way. Unfortunately, this means that there is no way to transfer the data between two different accounts at the moment due to how both App and Play Store work.” I have other apps that sync perfectly well between iOS and Android, they even have a web sign in that could easily link premium membership between two devices. Shame because I thoroughly enjoy this app but am quite unhappy with this practice.
Invasive
by MD253 on 2020/12/28 17:54
This app actually associates “user content” with your identification info. Which I believe means that my name and habits could be used for marketing purposes. Which is crazy on a paid service. Other todo apps don’t track this kind of info.
Stopped working and lost data
by Brokenalarm on 2020/12/28 16:17
The app stopped working and lost all my data. The developer refused to set up an account for me to hold my data in the future even though I already purchased the prime membership. The service is terrible and not trustworthy! Don’t buy!
Needs more challenges
by xSTruCx on 2020/12/28 05:15
I really enjoyed the 7 day challenges, there are exactly 9 challenges. Once you complete them, that’s it... the end. For example, the relationship challenge is cute (tasks you to leave a lovely note for your partner), I finished the 7 days, thereafter, I tried the relationship challenge again. To my surprise, it was asking me to repeat the same tasks. It would be great if the challenge continued with NEW ideas/tasks (I actually expected that give the price of the subscription, but that’s not the case). Hoping for an update...
Annoying
by OthmanMR on 2020/12/28 02:43
The first habit they want us to do is subscribing!!!
Horrible
by Chasityyyyyyyyyyyy on 2020/12/26 16:49
It’s the day after Christmas and this app just just took $32 out of my bank!!! I thought I had a day to unsubscribe. I didn’t even use it! Never again.
Nice design, but still very buggy.
by Estonia23 on 2020/12/26 15:33
I just paid for the 1 year subscriptions and started using it. Right away I notice some button don’t respond. Changes that I make doesn’t save.
Ads ruined the app for me before i could even use it
by distracted leaner on 2020/12/25 18:37
Constant ads on a productivity app probably isn’t the best for a productivity app! Let people USE the app and see if they enjoy it before you bombard them with ads.
Too much growth hacks effort
by JSong2020 on 2020/12/25 06:54
The app itself has no problem, but the team spends way too much time on growth hacks , Every single user interaction will tigger a modal, asking you to pay, asking you to rate, making the whole experience so broken.
Great app, but annoying as heck.
by MacOScrazy on 2020/12/25 05:43
This app is consistently bombarding you to UPGRADE TO GET FEATURES, literally every time you open the app. I want an app that works, I pay once and it works, not all this rigmarole. I am trying it for a couple of days but usually apps as annoying as this get deleted and not recommended to my friends and family.
Deleted all my habits twice
by Jack M Hoffman on 2020/12/24 19:39
First time I decided to start over give it another shot. Now they’ve been deleted again. Apparently too unreliable to trust with your data. edit: as suggested by dev I emailed them and was told they couldn’t help me get my data back because iCloud is not working with the app. Moved on to Streaks, which has backup for the data and habit history.
I LOVE IT
by Milana Lauren on 2020/12/24 18:16
This app is great! Unlike other apps all you have to do is set some goals and check them out once you do it! I thought it would take time out of my day but it makes it so easy to use on a daily basis, and it has challenges you can even do everyday of the week! And the app keeps me motivated to keep pushing those bad habits away. You can also choose if you want to try a pro version of the app which is where you have to pay but get more features on the app. But they also let you use it free which is awesome because some other apps like this only let you use it if you pay money, but this lets you both I would really recommend this app for helping you lose, gain, or just keep the same weight. There are some features that you can’t use unless you do premium but like I have already said it still works great😊 - Merry Christmas and a Happy New year 🥳 🎄

Didn’t say you have to subscribe on the advertising
I really wanted to like this app
by Nt1111 on 2020/12/23 02:36
Within 30 seconds of opening the app I was absolutely slammed with ads. I couldn’t even complete the tutorial without a full screen ad between each step. I was asked to upgrade to premium 3 times before I even knew what the app did. $7/month? Hey sure I don’t even know what I’m paying for great idea. I really wanted to like this app. I was excited to download and see how it worked. The UI screenshots looked great. I will definitely be looking elsewhere.
Changing task loses all history
by BMH292 on 2020/12/22 15:17
I like the app except for the fact that changing a task in any way will lose all history for that task AND not allow re-entry of that history. It would be much better to retain the history and simply restart the streak calculation from the date of the change. OR at least allow a user to re-enter the history. The app itself even suggests the user change their goals if not meeting them, which again would wipe out all history for that task. I consider this a ‘bug’ or poorly thought out function flaw. For now, be aware of this flaw and if you want to change a task goal while retaining history then create a new goal with a new name, still a pain because you will continue to see the old task entry on the reminders.... but at least you will be able to look at the calendar and still see what you have accomplished.
AMAZING APP!

This is not a free app

False ad it’s free. Once you tell them your goal you have to pay. There is one-week trial, but it’s not free.
Not good if your already broke
by Langstadt on 2020/12/20 16:25
It’s a shame because it would probably really help me but sadly everything has to be paid for in this life and I sadly am a young adult starting life and I’m broke right now, I wish I could get help becoming better but I have no extra money monthly for this
Great app, minor gripe
by fmiskuly19 on 2020/12/18 15:49
This is a great app. Great UI, functionality, it’s all there. My only gripe is that the verbiage in this app is focused around GOOD habits, whereas some of my habits are BAD habits that I’m tracking if I actually engaged in that habit or had a craving for it. So if I look at the calendar, it tells me to strive for “perfect days” where all my habits were completed. Or if I look at future days, it’ll say “go for it” under the habit. I don’t want to go for that habit. I just need to track if I did it. Maybe this could be solved by a toggle when creating a habit if it is good or bad? The obvious solution would be to use a bad habit app or tracker or something but I don’t just use this app for bad habits, I use it for working out, taking medicine, stopping smoking, etc. Like I said, this app is great, I just have this small issue with it.

Do Not Purchase
by JasonLaChanceee on 2020/12/15 19:15
Use the free version if you must but do not invest in this app. On my second yearly subscription I purchased it with iCloud sync working(not well but working). After taking a short break from the app and then upgrading phones it came to my attention that iCloud sync was now disabled. This pretty much meant that all of my habit history, over two years, was now gone. Not much help from customer service except that they removed iCloud sync because it wasn’t working well enough. Not a big purchase but would never purchase anything from them again. They can’t be trusted to deliver.

An app created by sadists
by Julietred on 2020/12/14 18:23
Update: I have written to customer support 5 times and they still have not resolved this issue. The most recent time is 12/13/2020. With this app if you don’t meet your goals this app tells you that you didn’t succeed and it suggests that you change your goals. It sends this message every —single — time you miss even one goal. It does it over and over again. I wrote to customer service for help. I asked them how to turn off the discouraging message. And their answer was “we’ll consider making that change in future upgrades.” Which, I guess is something. In the meantime they have made my money be wasted. This is what I wrote to customer service on the 5th try on 12/13/2020: I hate being told repeatedly by this app that my goal “streak” is broken. It isn’t. I just didn’t put it in the app. It’s a negative thing to say and it discourages my being productive. It’s a big thumbs down just when I’m opening my app to be productive. Please don’t write back again and say how you’ll let the developers know my feedback. Please try to get me a target date for fixing this. I paid good money for this app years ago and I really like it. It does exactly what I want. Except for this nasty, negative message that the developers added in 2019. Every time I get that negative comment about my streak being broken from this app it puts me in a sour mood. And I wanted to reach out and let the company that produces it know. This productivity app is harming my my ability to be productive.
Im glad this was a free trial
by felchat on 2020/12/13 21:46
Good idea. And great way to add new habits. But the price is a joke.

Hi, so I’m a freshman in high school, there’s a global pandemic going on. Life is stressful. This app has helped me so much. I can’t wait to continue on with it. It’s helps me take care of myself. I just wish you didn’t have to pay for so much of it. It would be tons better and more popular if it had less subscriptions.

by TaylorPlayer on 2020/12/08 19:50
I use the app every day to keep track of medications I need to take and important habits I am trying to keep (or break). It’s well designed and a little bit fun to use. I recommend it.
Please put back the old widget/spotlight helper
by josh macintyre on 2020/12/08 16:31
Before the update I had it on my spotlight section (left of Home Screen) and I was able to check off the task as I did them and even expand them but now that there’s a widget it changed this section and the widget doesn’t do anything... I would love it if you made it so I could check them off again in spotlight section

Should disclose that you have to pay for features before you download the app. Disappointing
Charged despite canceling during the trial 😠
by Flowerfaerydee on 2020/12/07 21:17
I downloaded this app and made an account, adding my credit card as I created my profile. Though it said there was a free trial of seven days, I was just charged for the yearly price of $29.99. I wrote an email and was told to get a refund from Apple, but that is NOT who the bill went through because I put my billing info directly into the app. I’ve been waiting all day for another response and my refund, have spoken to my bank about it also. NOT pleased at all!!!
Worth the Money!
by sophers8182 on 2020/12/07 20:59
I downloaded the app when a special offer was going on and my price was $14.99 but the regular price is $29.99 but I’m telling you, it’s so worth it!! It helps me stay so organized with my ADHD and soothes my Anxiety. Otherwise the app isn’t that good without the special features. If you aren’t willing to spend the money, don’t get the app unless there’s one specific goal or habit you want to work on. I personally use this app to plan my day with more order and it’s easier to manage.

So far I am loving this app. Really gives you the motivation to get your tasks done and stay oraganized.

Stuck on Update in Progress
by PFausti on 2020/12/05 02:07
Waited a long time to update as I saw from others comments that it wouldn’t open after an update. My mistake. Now I am in the same predicament. It says “Update in Progress, this may take a moment” but can’t get past that.
The free version is ...

Too many ads and one can not even set a simple alarm
It’s amazing
by Miko Takahashi on 2020/12/02 13:34
I just had this for a week and I’m already addicted it has helped me so much, and I will buy the more access thing and I hope this would help me a lot more. I love it you should get it it’s amazing!!
Pretty good so far!
by Goodie(: on 2020/12/02 12:44
I really like the app so far! I like that I can have as many habits that I want with the subscription. I would like it even more if it had a widget that allowed me to check things off on my Home Screen like “Streaks” does.
PLEASE ME IT A WIDGET
by Ig: x3xSlimm 🏀🔥 on 2020/11/30 19:55
It would help a lot if this was a widget 🥲
Not free!
by ChaosOchoa on 2020/11/30 04:09
Says free but it’s not. This app tries to guess your life. Too much things to get through.
I want to love it
by Andrew_elias on 2020/11/28 15:00
I had purchased the premium membership a long time ago when they first launched the product. So the app tells me I have a premium membership but it is awfully integrated. I feel I get zero benefits. The cross-platform integration is so bad. Habits I start or check on my iPad Pro don’t update update on my iPhone and Apple Watch and vice versa. ugh. Please fix this and I’ll come back.
Can’t find how to confirm “done”?
by Kalakaua1 on 2020/11/28 07:05
Where are the basic directions ? I’m admittedly not very tech savvy but so far this app has been a waste of money Yes I managed to set the goals but after I accomplish them it tells me at the end of the day that I did “not achieve” my goal ?
Excellent
by mrnmrshouston on 2020/11/27 11:12
Been wanting to find an app like this for a long time. Great and simple to use since I procrastinate a lot. Thanks!
Great App
by yrjdjdbfbdj on 2020/11/25 20:23
Easy and simplistic! The perfect app to effectively track habits.
Widget ?
by Sage_druid7 on 2020/11/24 17:17
If it isn’t a widget you guys should make it one but it’s really nice app !!
App Interface Feedback
by ajoooooooosiooo on 2020/11/22 20:34
I love this App. It’s really helping me complete the day to day tasks I need in order to keep my depression under control. The one piece of feedback I have is that it would be great to have the option to select different interface colors and designs. The black interface can be hard on the eyes and also makes me a little sad. Thanks and keep up the great work!!
Not organized
by Radou7 on 2020/11/22 17:13
Not very organized. When I search for goal setting apps this is the first one that pops up, but it’s really not a big picture goal setting app, it’s a very narrowed habit setting app. Nothing wrong with that but I’d like to be able to see my big picture goals (lose 50 pounds by 7/16/20) and then within that category set all the mid range goals and habits I need to create to reach that goal. If you set up a habit then that just goes to your daily tracker where everything is kept. It’s a long laundry list of things to do. It would be helpful to have the ability to categorize your list. So, when I open “today” I might see the category of “lose 50lbs” and then inside of that all the things I need to do today to reach that goal. Also, they do have “challenges” that you can join that is similar to what I’m referencing above but there does seem to be a way to create a custom challenge or even to just remove the ones that they have. It would be nice to have full control to customize what I want to do.
Great app but
by Macmelody on 2020/11/22 16:37
Great app. I like this app a lot, on my iPad. But, it doesn’t synced with my iPhone? Why? Double the work. My phone is big, but I like using my iPad and iWatch. If this app won’t sync, what good will it do me?
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.
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!
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.
The First Steps are Simple With the App
by K-Bernard on 2020/07/19 11:36
Hey all, After thinking for a little bit of time of when I would start my habits and good motivation to do it, it was not until this app that I really started doing much. I see this app as a rehabilitations skill builder in habits in a way that moves my inspiration to want to do habits a lot simpler. I find myself adding goals every day and it’s consistently interesting to see how much I want to accomplish vs how much I would accomplish. It’s peaceful to know I use this as a guide and I realized it also clears my mind to write it all down. Didn’t realized how much in a day there is to do, but how much you can do within a given time (I.e thirty minutes blocks can get so much done. Anyway I won’t over express myself here. But I think all should give this a try, I found an objective benefit to using it and I do have a subjective view on it since I used it. But if you want to move forward with organization with your habits and decrease Brian focus on your habits and build more accountability for yourself, I recommend this app! Thanks all, All the best!
Latest update has terrible UX
by Gggghfjtfugvbnk on 2020/06/25 03:46
Edit: Updating back to 5 stars because the UX has been improved, I’m sure many people enjoy the fancy UI but there is now an option to have a no frills. I have had some issues with habit data not saving properly for the current day, though, when checking habits off sometimes Old review: I agree with some other reviews I’ve seen: this was an update for the sake of updating. It has “fixed” things that were not broken to begin with. The UI used to be minimal and easy to use day to day, but now forces its paradigm of time-of-day habits. Sure, I have some habits for the evening, but a lot of anyone’s habits aren’t strictly for one time of day. It is more difficult now to just get this app to show me what I want—a simple list of my habits for the day. All day habits are now all the way to the left, the app has unneeded animations for what it is (essentially just a simple to do list style app), and the bottom bar UI now centers on adding a new habit, which is one of the actions I’ve used the least. This is making me regret subscribing to this. Maybe I can find a different app that is just simple and elegant, and doesn’t get in my way.
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.
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.
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.
Great UI but buggy (updated: might be iOS issue)
by cephvar on 2020/06/10 04:22
It’s pretty intuitive at first, but when you get deeper into customization, you run into oddities and bugs. For example, it seems to be pretty aggressive about resetting streaks when you make edits to habits (understandable, but the rules around this could be more clear). You edit a habit name, and it reorders it. Sometimes things don’t get saved. Sometimes they get reordered at seemingly unpredictable times. And worse, I’ve only just fully set up a bunch of habits, and all of a sudden my Today shows up blank, rendering the app useless because I can’t actually see or complete the habits I spent so much time setting up. It worked well when it was working, but I am less than a month into using Productive and now it’s broken. Update: Rebooting my iOS device seemed to fix the issue so I just raised my original rating to 4. I also had noticed another app having issues (Alarmy wasn’t showing an alarm going off), so I’m tentatively chalking at least the major issue above to an iOS problem and not a Productive one. Will report back if other issues persist or not.
Well designed with spotty execution
by thadangazone on 2019/11/30 14:27
I’ve been using this app (with premium features) for years because I haven’t found another app that is as good as this one for tracking habits. That being said I’ve looked long and hard for an alternative. My issues with the app are 1) in that it has below average integration across devices. I have an iPad and it doesn’t load all of the habits from the phone into the tablet. It will load some but not all. It also takes forever (if it will do it at all) to sync with me marking a habit on one device. Example. I marked a habit complete around midday on the phone and the iPad app never registered it so it still showed up as incomplete in the iPad. And 2) if you’re relying on it for an accurate “perfect streak” count look elsewhere or track with a red X on a calendar. You can have a million perfect days in a row and the app arbitrarily decides to not track some days in the streak. Which is weird because the counter for “days complete” is accurate but the streak counter is completely random. Again. Best I’ve found and does a lot of things right. But I’ve also been looking for an alternative for a while.
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.
It’s okay, some flaws
by Satanscrush on 2020/08/02 15:39
This app IS helpful, as I have started many challenges, and keeping up with them! However, what is really annoying about this app is that if you don’t mark at the end of the day that you have completed the challenge for that day—it automatically starts you over again and says that you failed the challenge. It feels terrible—especially when you are actually doing the challenge and have been for a full week! Please change this. It’s incredible frustrating to keep having to pledge over and over again, especially when I know I haven’t broken the pledge! Perhaps make a notification when you open the app that says “I noticed that you didn’t check in last night, how is the challenge going?” And then gives you the option to say “still going strong” or “I slipped, let’s start over”. I’ve been on the intermittent fasting challenge for almost a week now and in my app it says 0 because I forgot to swipe the challenge last night. It’s just very frustrating. Please fix this. Not everyone is going to have this app chained to their hip, we have lives.
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.
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.”
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
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.
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. :)
Free version is unusable
by ConeyQ on 2020/06/18 21:02
This app bills itself as a free app with optional in-app purchases, but that’s a complete misrepresentation. The app is almost unusable without a subscription. It’s a complete money grab. Literally every time you navigate away from it or change screens, it directs you to pay for a subscription. The subscription page that pops up every five seconds is set up in a misleading way that indicates a “free trial” (that auto-subscribes you for a full year’s price) is the only option to continue using the app for free. You can X out of the subscription page in the top left corner without agreeing to the trial, but people who aren’t tech literate won’t realize that. I downloaded the app because my mother wanted to use it but couldn’t get it to work. As soon as I saw the subscription page, I asked my mother if she’d known she could skip it without starting a trial, and she told me no, she’d hit the obvious yellow button that said “free trial” instead. I helped her cancel her subscription and delete the app. There are much more functional free productivity apps out there that run on ads without tricking people into thinking they need a recurring subscription to use them.
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!
Pretty Great BUT could be SUPER
by BREanna•) on 2020/02/25 00:16
This is my first time ever writing a review for anything... so... that’s says something. This app is good but to blow every other app out the water there should be where you can set a location and then a timer to when to do a task when you arrive at the location. For example 30 minutes after I get home a remind would go off to tell me I need to do something. Also it would be really cool if there was where you can set a timer and in the timer it has breaks, for example you work for 30 minutes relax for 30 and then work for 30 that would be really great instead of making multiple timers or resetting it. Another idea would be if you can put reminders after one another, for example once you do one task another task would pop up for you to do next and would make it even better if it starts blank minutes after you get to a location.
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.
The Limit
by iamSHPOON on 2020/07/12 13:31
Wow whoever created this app deserves a high five. This app is exactly what I needed my entire life. I always can get distracted so this was perfect. Any app can get a five star rating from a satisfied costumer but, there’s always one flaw. This app is amazing but my one complaint is the limit. You are only allowed a certain amount of habits and that makes sense but it’s too low for me. I only had like 5 things on my list but then it said I reached the limit? It makes sense to me that if you want unlimited habits you have to pay for premium but if you guys are going to set a limit on habits don’t make it 5. If you could change it to like maybe 10 that would be amazing 😉. I get it if you don’t have premium on this app you won’t make 💰 but can you just boost up the habit limit that would be phenomenal! I love this app so much and I’m not talking bad about the creator. Thank you so much to who ever made this app! Thank you! - very satisfied customer (except for the limit part)
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
I LOVE IT
by Milana Lauren on 2020/12/24 18:16
This app is great! Unlike other apps all you have to do is set some goals and check them out once you do it! I thought it would take time out of my day but it makes it so easy to use on a daily basis, and it has challenges you can even do everyday of the week! And the app keeps me motivated to keep pushing those bad habits away. You can also choose if you want to try a pro version of the app which is where you have to pay but get more features on the app. But they also let you use it free which is awesome because some other apps like this only let you use it if you pay money, but this lets you both I would really recommend this app for helping you lose, gain, or just keep the same weight. There are some features that you can’t use unless you do premium but like I have already said it still works great😊 - Merry Christmas and a Happy New year 🥳 🎄
Do NOT trust this app for long term goals
by eag_app_review_nickname on 2020/03/28 03:25
If you want an app that you can trust with your personal growth, this is not the app. I used this app to track some very personal and meaningful growth, with over 820 days (that's over 2 years!) of perfect days. I succeeded in meeting my goals Every. Single. Day. for more than two years. What happened? Apalon made an update and wiped my data. I'm now back at zero. I'm devastated. My stomach is in my throat. Do not make the mistake I did in trusting them with your goals. Do not trust them to track your progress. Use Google calendar, or a physical journal, or anything else. Do not trust them long term. It might work today, or day 800, but eventually you will wake up and find your progress gone and with it your sense of accomplishment! Note: I did reach out to support. They replied after a day, saying "We're working on it." From there I didn't hear from them. I have emailed them two more times, without a word back, which was over a week ago. I'm beyond heartbroken. Again, do not trust this app for any of your long term goals, you will regret it. Eventually they will destroy your data.
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
Glitches, crashes, poor sync across devices
by Jartin mcfartin on 2020/05/11 22:31
I’ve been using this app for about a year and half now and I’ve had many problems. Nothing just works how its supposed to. My completed tasks aren’t being synced across my devices, so if I click completed on my Apple Watch or iPhone, my iPad won’t reflect it, and vice versa. Sometimes it will sync one completion here or there but its very unreliable. I can mark every task completed on my iPad and hours later my iPhone has only realized I’ve completed one or two tasks. My devices haven’t even synced some completions from a month ago. This defeats the purpose of having it on separate devices if they won’t sync properly... as well as the whole idea of tracking habits. On to the next problem: the sometimes working Apple Watch app. Probably 50% of the time the Apple Watch app is non-responsive or just crashes when you open it. I’ve had days where I can’t open the app on the Apple Watch. Yes... everything is updated and my settings are set to sync across devices... things just don’t work. I can’t believe I’ve paid for two years of service that works this poorly.
My best recovery tool!
by Call me Poncho on 2020/09/01 02:57
As a recovering drug addict I have always found it hard to crest good habits. Starting bad ones has never been an issue. My sponsor suggested that I make a master schedule for more day which was a great idea other than having it in my notebook which I don’t always have access to. This app has allowed me with great ability to input my entire day. Literally from waking up, work, step work, family time. Everything! And having the reminders along with the positive messages spread through the entirety of this app, is a wonderful moral boost. It also helps me check back regularly and I am able to keep up with each task so I know if I missed something and need to catch up. This app is a literal life saver for me. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to the entire development team that touched this app!!
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.
GREAT!! But this could have been a five star
by xXWolfygiRl on 2020/07/09 02:45
I usually don’t write reviews, but when I saw the rate button I thought, “I’m not gonna sit this one out.” So I’m writing this report to say this app is GREAT and PRETTY MUCH what I was looking for... pretty much. But, to make it EXACTLY what I was looking for: I don’t like how you need to have the premium to be able to get notifications. That was the app I was looking for in the first place, but since I didn’t want to buy the premium I got another app that would give me the notifications. All the other things you included in the app, I completely understand why they cost money, but if you want another perfect 5-star review please I remove the notifications at a certain time from the premium and make it free. Otherwise, in my personal opinion this deserves a four-star review. Great app, could be better. Developers if you saw this, thank you so much for taking the time to read my review.
Great User Interface and Habit/Goal Setup Option But lacks good Stats
by RTM is an Excellent App on 2020/03/22 00:50
The user interface is probably one of the better ones I’ve tried and intuitive user engagement. Good Options in habit/goal domains with icons and colors, but no tags so i can filter or sort categories how i want them. However I think for the price compared to some it lacks a lot on various informative calendar views/stats. All it gives you is if you got all your goals done in a day and what those streaks are. I think for habits it is better to see overall how you are doing on a daily, weekly, monthly basis for either each habit/goal and entire summary fo all. Also, there should be option to better visually see the Habit For SKIP, or FAIL. I think good app for some that don’t need to see useful calendar stats in a few intuitive views. If you Update your calendar/stat view options similar to Habit Bull or Way of Life I will come back as those other apps lack in fun user interface.
Awesome app, latest update disappointing
by Tracy369963 on 2019/12/22 16:53
This app really helps lower my stress level. I have a lot of administrative tasks to do at work plus a complicated schedule for doing my physical therapy exercises. I was always worried about forgetting something or trying to keep the different days schedule straight in my head. It took a while (and a little planning) to set up, but once set up there’s little to do. Now I relax and just check things off. This app is so customizable, you can separate the work and home tasks (afternoon and evening), have different tasks on different days and put the tasks in any order you want. I would give it 5/5 stars but the new update is not working properly. The slider to mark done and skip hangs frequently, so the task still appears undone. And I preferred the old listing because you could see more tasks at once, since I use this on my iPhone, I have a small screen and I have to scroll more now.
TERRIBLE REDESIGN - don’t install the new version if you haven’t!!!
by kckm32 on 2019/12/21 00:25
I have used the premium version of the app for years & loved it. I always gave it 5 stars and it was a crucial part of my day. Prior to today, my only complaint was that the updates would randomly delete habits or reset to some I had years ago, but since had deleted. Frustrating, but a rare and manageable problem. Today I’m literally in tears because I’m so frustrated and hate the new update. Wasted space and inefficient - I want to be able to see my anytime habits on the same page with the time of day - I DON’T WANT OR NEED A PICTURE OF THE SUN’S POSITION IN THE SKY TAKING UP HALF THE SCREEN!!!!! I don’t want to swipe left and right a thousand times (while accidentally marking tasks as completed or skipped because it’s the same motion)!!! I’m hoping there’s a way to restore the previous version - It has become such an integral part of my routine, but I can’t and won’t use it with the new layout. I find it much more cumbersome & difficult to use. PLEASE ROLLBACK OR PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION!!!!!!
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.
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!
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.
Really good but could be better
by Yo Kai Watch FAN!!! on 2020/08/03 15:16
I’ve been using this app over the Summer and even paid to unlock more habits and let me say it is very useful. The look of the app is perfect, the amount of icons are great, and it helps me get things done throughout the day. But the reason I give it a 3/5 is because I think there’s still plenty of room for improvement. One thing that I think would improve the app experience A LOT is the addition of a fourth option to repeat both a habit or one time task, WHENEVER. This would actually be amazing, to have the choice to not have to do a habit daily, weekly, or monthly, but just whenever you want. I’d like to be able to log some habits whenever I’d like to, without them affecting my streak, and still be able to track how often I do said habit. And I’d like to be able to do some tasks whenever I choose. Either way the app is still pretty good👍
Clean, Simple, Effective with One Design Flaw
by penguin_player on 2019/12/03 06:06
Productive is a simple app for building effective habits. It easily lets you create custom, repeating to do lists and track your completion. It was exactly what I was looking for without anything I did not want. My only complaint is that several months ago they added the feature to see what tasks are due tomorrow, but those tasks cannot be completed until tomorrow. While this makes some sense, the app has no problem letting you complete tasks after the day they were due. I like this feature and use it to catch up when I fall behind, but I hate that I can’t get even a day ahead when I know I have a busy stretch coming up. It’s almost as if the app is subtly designed to support you when you fall behind, which is great, but not encourage you to proactively avoid falling behind in the first place, which is unfortunate.
Doesn’t sync with all devices, pricey
by Tyler2406 on 2020/03/26 06:56
This is a decent little app. Nice layout and user friendly, however my biggest complaint is lack of syncing across devices. I spent a lot of time creating all my habits from my phone and being that I use my iPad heavily, I wanted to be able to also bring them up on my iPad. It’s not a bad app by any means but for the steep price you pay for such a simple habit tracker, I do expect more features and functionality packed in. In my honest opinion, this app is not worth the subscription. Maybe so if it was half the price, maybe.. if it was a one time purchase, then yes I’d consider it worth it. I’ll check in in the future for further updates as well as a review. You’ve got a great start, but please consider adding more or other features to make it feel worth the price. I can track any one of these things easily with other free apps that already have this built in to their suite of other features.
It was my go-to for years! Until...
by jardysantiago on 2019/11/18 15:06
I’ve had this app since 2016. It really helped me get back on my feet during a difficult time, so to me, it was a game changer. It was one of my most reliable apps, but alas it has one major flaw that made me look elsewhere for a habit tracker 4 years later. Recently I got an iPad and two Apple Watches, and the syncing between devices just wasn’t smooth at all. Sometimes it didn’t happen altogether. The iPad was left out most of the time, and when that happened, it usually ended in habits being duplicated on all the devices. It also took some effort to get it to sync when I switched watches in the morning - on the watch it would say “syncing” and nothing would happen until I messed with it on my iPhone. This process would take me 10+ minutes. Overall, this is a great app if you only use it on one device, but across several devices, some major bugs still need to be fixed.
Used to be good app
by photonslave on 2020/02/19 17:10
Update(19-feb) : It’s been three weeks since the sorting habits is broken . After spending a long valuable time sorting the habits , it’s really unacceptable to see them go back to random order again . How long will it take it fix issues which were once working fine ? Original review : I am a paid member of the app for a few Months now and been a regular user . The app used to be simple and very useful , where you can create new habits and sort it with ease, I used as my reference to get an idea of how my day must be sequenced. . A recent update completely broke the sorting functionality and completely jumbled up all the habits that I had kept sorted until now . I contacted support and reported this . I got a response on how to fix it again . I spent 30 mins to sort all the habits manually once again as it was broken by the update. But once I went to another screen in the app and back , the sorting went away again and it’s all jumbled up again . This is Extremely careless of them especially for something people pay lots of money for. Another clear indicator of their carelessness is when you go read their version history - none of them describe what the actual changes in the new version is . They copy paste the same genetic description for every version . Updated: Tried twice more to reorder my habits , and it again went back to jumbled state . I have spent 1 hr so far just to sort the habits but giving up
Great App, Terrible Updates
by covlar on 2020/10/17 00:02
I’ve been using this app for years, and paid for premium back when it was a flat fee. I want to make it clear that the app itself has really helped me a lot with my ADHD and overall executive function, and the flat fee (not subscription) has been worth it. However the fact that the app is completely unusable (wont even open!) for like a week or more after each update is unreal. I figured out that this was the case years ago, so have consistently delayed updating for at least a few weeks after each update release on habit (ha). However, I accidentally updated a mere week after release this time....and now the app once again won’t even open for me. While forgivable for a fairly new product team, it’s crazy that this is still the case ~a week after an update years later. Why not roll back a version so we at least have something workable to use in the meantime? Also don’t release updates until they’ve been extensively verified and tested for bugs.
Good idea, buggy implementation, annoying “resets”
by marioshadj on 2020/04/02 16:36
I downloaded the app earlier in January, and really liked it on my iPhone so I ended up buying the annual subscription to get the extra features. I really like how it keeps track of my habits and reminds me to do stuff, but I find it very inflexible in terms of changing your habits as you go (which I would think is a very valid use case). Say, for example, you start with do something x times a week; after a while, you may want to do that more frequently. The app lets you change that, but then seems to delete all the previous entries (with a non-so-specific prompt because it tells you it will “update the stats”, not that it will “delete the stats”), which is pretty infuriating. I would rather it resets the stats but keeps the entries if it cannot handle different stats for different periods of time (based on goal changes). Outside of the resetting-habits issue, there is another issue which makes it a bit more annoying to use: the app never syncs with my other devices (iPad) through iCloud, even though the setting is supposedly “on”, on both iPad and iPhone, tried to enable/disable a few times to no avail, and email support wasn’t that helpful in telling me to try things they have in the FAQ section which I’ve already tried before contacting them. Especially considering this is a paid app (can’t really think that most people can effectively use the free version), I would expect some higher quality there.
