A joke & a Scam
by E-Connection on 2020/07/05 07:01
Developer: you got everybody’s money why not make the app work! Unless I’m missing something, along with all the other limited functionality, iCloud sync does not even sync. Please explain to me your definition of sync; does that mean simply export? What is it syncing to? I can’t use any of my other devices for your subscription price? Does that make sense? Developer: Noticeable too are your apologetic, no commitment responses. Why not tell us what you’re going to do and do it. You know what we want, why not fix it and maybe we’ll keep or maintain our subscription. At present, I’m looking to go back to my free app which does much more and more user friendly.
Restarts challenges
by Nebary on 2020/07/05 03:35
I didn’t fail the challenge, but for some reason the app decided opposite and there is no way to change it.
App Doesn’t Open
by Pandnfjapabf fbwoqskfbf on 2020/07/04 16:41
I used this app for a little while and found that it didn’t fit my lifestyle. No harm no foul, but after forgetting to cancel my subscription I decided to give it another go. The app straight up doesn’t open now. I’ve tried re-downloading and seeking support through Apalon’s website to no avail. The app will appear open when I swipe up and right to look at my open apps, but selecting it will lead back to the home screen and give me no option to interact with it. Completely broken.

Sync across devices?

Is this a premium feature? Can’t get it to sync with my iPad...
Does not synchronize with Apple products
by Aleksandra.soul on 2020/07/02 19:14
I bought Productive subscription for a year last year and forgot about it in three months as it was not sending me the reminders I set. Also the app would randomly send me a notification on my Apple Watch once in a while, but it did not send all of the set notifications.

Great app but
by Rendezvous Productions on 2020/07/02 05:33
Great app, unfortunately I find myself needing a reminder feature but it’s under a monthly subscription so I’m going to have to pass. I would definitely consider buying a one time purchase of even $20 for a lifetime subscription. Till then, I’ll switch over to another To Do list.
Keeps crashing :(
by namastekyrie on 2020/07/02 02:57
I was going to start using this app again after a bit of a hiatus, however, even after updating it and reinstalling, it won’t open. I’ve been using Trello more lately anyway, so I may just stick with that and delete this one instead. I did love this app back when I first started using it a few years ago though! Hopefully it works better for others.

I am loving this app so far. I am someone that can’t change too much at a time. I have my most important habit on a 7 day streak and I’m adding a second habit in today. The app is easy to navigate and to make changes to your habits.
Great App!

Sync issues
by AppleClient1555 on 2020/06/29 06:55
I was looking forward to using this app more routinely. The interface is stellar and you can tell the developers put a lot of thought in the app. Great options for tweaking how each habit should work for you. It allows you to look at your habit trends over time. My gripe though, is that it doesn’t sync between devices. I have an iPad and an iPhone with the app signed in under my Apple account, with a subscribed premium option. No dice. No transfer between devices. Supports been very slow to respond and thus far unhelpful. Great option still for single device users though.

by sophievanhorn on 2020/06/29 02:50
Absolutely love this app! Only 2.5$ a month when you break it down and it is the perfect way to crest new habits while maintaining old ones!
Good app but too expensive
by sm22862 on 2020/06/28 19:54
Just use TimeBloc!!!! It’s free and has more features than this app!
Don’t trust iCloud backup.
by True_northman on 2020/06/28 14:47
Purchased the annual plan and used for several months. Changed devices and lost months worth of data, even though I had iCloud sync enabled. Contacted support and they were basically like “sorry about that. Can’t help you”. This is a critical feature that’s broken. I’m requesting a refund from Apple. Two stars for a decent interface. Minus three for irresponsible management of my data, and the fact that you can’t retroactively create completed tasks. Your chain has to start from the day you created the goal. Lame.
Does not sync to devices/ new challenges errors
by Danvan2001 on 2020/06/28 13:23
I love this app, I have absolutely used it every single day multiple times a day since purchasing. It is simple not overwhelming to just get started and tick away your chores or goals. I’ve reported a problem three times asking for support to get my iPhone app to sync habit and progress with my iPad. This is a paid app so I would expect far better support on trying to accomplish this. New app feature “challenges”. Does not accurately record you selecting complete for the day. I will check the progress bar to make sure before closing it for the day. The next am it says the streak is broken and I must reset the challenge. I’d suggest adding the swipe feature here too since press selection is unreliable.
Starting off strong!
by veaniesbeanie on 2020/06/28 05:32
Day 2- - I have just started using this app. So far, it is doing well! I wouldn’t say it is exceeding my expectations or anything but, I do recommend this app if you’re unorganized and need to get rid of or gain habits like me! I will add more to this review a few weeks or day in! :)
Productivity on a new level!
by SomeBoiledEggs on 2020/06/27 16:23
I got this app in hopes of helping me complete my to do list faster and with more ease. And it did just that! This app gives you a greater sense of accomplishment as well as motivation, when I normally would not have any. Definitely a great app to download! 100% worthy of five stars!
Helps me stay consistent with my routine

Perfect and cute!
by Lii Montoya on 2020/06/27 01:40
App gets straight to the point, the interface makes it really easy to assign habits and tasks, and comes with lots of helpful suggestions to get you started. Great if you’re looking for something fun and easy to keep you accountable!
Great
by Eva Barger on 2020/06/26 16:43
I think this app is great for anyone in general, but especially for people with anxiety or depression or any other mental illness that makes it difficult to get through your day and accomplish “small” things. Even without paying for the full app, I was still able to put most of the habits I wanted to complete (drinking more water, exercising, practicing my violin, and meditating) The only I don’t give it 5 stars is because I don’t have the premium upgrade or whatever it is called. However, if you days are kinda hectic and you like keeping tract of what you’ve done and such, I’d say go ahead and pay for it. Love this app especially for the harder days where doing something simple seems like the most difficult task.
Good app

Very helpful 😊I paid for the full version
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.
Not free
by Valkyrssss on 2020/06/25 03:37
This app is not free at all! I downloaded it and was immediately asked to pay a monthly subscription. Ridiculous! Don&#39;t advertise as free when it’s not!! Deleted immediately
Productive rating
by Dad Jr on 2020/06/24 18:54
Productive is a good app with a nice schedule, but I am 10 years old whose mom won’t let him spend his money on apps. So in other words I can’t spend the money for the membership and i have a lot of chores and only five slots. I would give this app five stars if they would give me unlimited slots.
Wonderful

It help me a lot on keeping track on what I am doing!
Pretty good!
by USER$$4237 on 2020/06/24 11:37
I think this app is really good! It can get people focused without having to write lists on lists. However, the only thing that I have found is that the free version allows you to only add a few habits to your list, which is a bit annoying. Overall it’s a great app!
Great
by Sra.blablabla on 2020/06/24 02:25
This is the best app for establishing healthy habits! Also it has a beautiful layout.

Did not honor my subscription cancellation
by mjbrazz on 2020/06/23 18:21
I unsubscribed through the App Store. Then, the app offered me a 0% discount as their “sorry to see you go” offer. Very disappointed in how this was handled.
Easy and helpful

Please add a light theme Dark theme is hard on eyes difficult to see Also the number on calendars are too small make the fonts bigger Please remove icons from notification like night 🌙 The customer service doesn’t consider this suggestion I have been requesting for month This app seems design only for young people and it discriminate adult people that have more limitations due to aging

I have enjoyed this app. It was a little clunky until I got to know it a little better. It gives some great flexibility in being able to set and monitor your goals.
Way too expensive—
by justinspace on 2020/06/22 06:34
This app is way pricey for what it is. I got sucked into the year subscription cause I forgot to cancel on the 7th day of my trial. Totally not worth $30 for the whole year. There are better apps out there that do so much more that are $10 for life. Such a rip off, don’t waste your money.
Aggressive Ads
by gamewombat on 2020/06/22 03:08
Cool app, ads for the paid plan are so aggressive I gave up on it.
Not really free
by dani0010 on 2020/06/21 03:10
The free mode has so many prompts to upgrade to paid that it’s practically unusable. It’s like browsing a clickbait site.

Very great app, worth the 25 bucks
Pretty good!
by Abigale Loopez on 2020/06/19 04:24
I was happy with the app. It worked perfectly fine. It got the job done and in my opinion, it made me want to get the things I had to do done! The only reason why it is not a five star is because the ad for the “premium” version keeps popping up. Another thing is that you can only have so many tasks. There is a limit which I feel like there shouldn’t be cause you may have a busy day. Other than that, I love it!!
Slick UI, Little Substance
by Adam Smoove on 2020/06/18 22:21
Everything looks great in the UI, but it actually doesn’t functionally behave like a goal tracker. For example, here’s how I would track “learning algebra” through the UI description provided by Productive “I want to have 8 reps of studying algebra repeated every week as often as once every week” Now in actually tracking that goal on day 1 I enter in I’ve done two reps for learning algebra. (In my case these correspond to pomodoros). Now day 2 comes around and I want to track more Algebra. That goal has been removed by Productive. I can’t input any additional Algebra studying on day 2. Why? Because Productive makes bad assumptions about how you’re using the app, highly constricted to its views about what goal tracking is. So if you didn’t get all the reps for algebra in on Day 1 well you just have to wait another week. Bruh.. So for as pretty as this app is, don’t expect anything more than a elevated to-do list. Don’t buy this.
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.
Good, but barely works without subscription
by Brick Cliffton on 2020/06/18 15:47
For the most of the functionality that people would want from an app for helping you build new habits (like reminders to do the habit), you’re basically going to have to pay for the subscription.
Great app!
by dxrxtdfcuvygbiy on 2020/06/18 13:39
I really helps me get organized and keep a structured day! One thing is I wish you could do a little more with out having to pay because you really cant do much. Overall great though!
Subscription problems
by vick96 on 2020/06/18 13:03
I don’t have the normal option to cancel my subscription in settings with this app. They make it difficult in order for you to keep paying the subscription
I’ve tried them all and this one wins HANDS DOWN
by kol lin on 2020/06/18 06:19
This is an elegant, compact and highly versatile habit tracker. It’s very easy to get started but it is flexible enough to allow for some real customization once you get going. The touch interface for checking off habits is perfectly integrated and everything feels well thought out and highly intuitive. Oh and did I mention the user interface?? Clean, elegant and minimalist. Providing the perfect balance between being informative while not being overwhelming. ::My only nitpick is I would like to have the percentage of habits completed daily be represented graphically. Right now the app only distinguishes between some and all habits completed. It would be great to visually identify the percentage of habits completed on a daily basis.
Great app

Basically it’s just a clean, pretty, and functional app for both habits and one-time tasks. Everything works well :). It helps me track my habits.

Draining my battery?

Well I might have started to use this app if it wasn’t for the ridiculous amount of screens trying to make me pay money before I had even seen a snipped of the actual app. Once I had managed to turn down all your special offers and saw something of the actual app, it only lasted a fraction of a moment before all the special offers was thrown in my face again. Seriously guys, why f up what might be a nice product/service by being so unpleasantly aggressive from the get go?

Routine needed
by pollitoismyname on 2020/06/15 13:26
I really like the app the only criticism I’ll give it is when setting up a morning routine I can’t make them go in an order of my choosing easily, I have to write them all down and put them in backwards or I’ve found a little glitch where I can stop the habit change the time of it and then resume and it works for only some of the habits, I can’t find a way to make it convient to order the habits into a routine and not just some Random checklist.
Overall it’s great
by hiiiiiiiaye on 2020/06/15 12:38
It’s really helpful for building habits and easy to use, however, I really don’t like that every time I want to adjust my existing habit for example expand the duration, or just change the habit from morning to afternoon, the app will wipe away all the specific habit data and give me to start from the beginning, it’s not a big deal yes, but it’s that psychological mindset of “I’ve done so much!” To keep forming the habit and pushing and motivate ppl, when the app take that achievement away for now reason that it kinda kill the app’s purpose of helping ppl to form a good habit. Would strongly suggest the company to change it soon
Thank you developers!!

This is such an awesome app and I love using it. It really helps with keeping track of all my big and small habits I want to help keep me healthy and organized.

Surprised to see only one religion privileged
by hootview on 2020/06/12 04:14
Trying out this app, primarily to spur me on in prayer and listening to scripture. I was surprised to see only one religion, current Americanized pop Buddhism, privileged to exclude all others. Suggested religious habits recommended meditating, doing yoga, and mindfulness. Only one religious symbol, the yin/yan, offered. Why not include praying salat for Muslims, studying Torah and prayer for Jews, prayer/ scripture/ creed/ confession/ veneration for Christians? Why not include symbols like a crescent, star of David, and a cross? Was hoping this was an app that respected diversity, belonging, and inclusion. But it excludes the majority of the world’s population in an Abrahamic religion.

Pretty Good App
by Jassy748 on 2020/06/11 16:57
I got this app to help me with my habits and I gotta admit it feels good to slide the little check mark. The problem is a bunch of extra stuff makes you need to buy the subscription. For example we can’t have reminders for our habits and there is a limit to how many habits we can create without the subscription.
Great addition to my calendar

I just started using this app. It has helped, but I don’t want to pay for it and I have a lot of restrictions on this app.
Great for habits!

Great app for tracking habits! Very intuitive
Love it

Helps me stay productive and organized!
Muy buena

Me gusto mucho pero quieren el pago ☹️
Not bad at all
by Monexx177 on 2020/06/10 21:36
Pretty good app! I’m just not great at keeping up with habits
Not worth it
by shane meyer on 2020/06/10 18:34
This app should be one purchase only. It is priced way too high for an app that doesn’t need updates at all.
Not free
by Masontubbing on 2020/06/10 13:04
I think it’s a good idea but why in the world does it have to be a paid subscription I would improve your Rating if it was free
Great app!
by Eve H F on 2020/06/10 11:52
This app has helped me to be more consistent with my implementing good habits without feeling overwhelmed. Loving it!
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.
AWESOME!!!!

Love it. So much.
Wish I knew
by littledoe16 on 2020/06/10 00:31
This app is ok so far but, the one thing I don’t like is you have to pay to have it remind you to do something. yes you create a habit but it won’t remind you by sound without paying for it . I personal think it should be free to do that. I understand if you have 5 for more then yes you can pay to upgrade but if your like me that only needs 2 reminders then it should be free wishing I didn’t download this app because you basically have to pay for everything. Just another app that I don’t need and wasted.
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&#39;m 16 and I got this app to keep track of chores and other daily habits I often forget. It&#39;s exactly what I needed. I&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t counted as missed until the day is over, which keeps my motivation for the streaks up. It&#39;s the perfect level of simplicity for me. My only complaint is that I have to pay a subscription for more habits! I don&#39;t really care about whatever else comes with premium. I love this app and it&#39;s exactly what I need but I can&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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.
Quite a good app
by 17374850483761919384649 on 2018/06/19 01:53
I especially appreciate this app, since the calendar it has tracks when you do things and when you don’t do things. This gives you a satisfying cross-off of the days of the week you do the things you planned, making you feel compelled to keep up the task instead of putting it off another day. That being said, all of the features (in the free version at least) besides reminders can be done using a regular calendar, which would give you an even more satisfying cross-off since it is being done physically. However, I would still recommend this app, for people who are still struggling with procrastination, since it isn’t the laziness but rather the will, and personally the will has kept me going with this app. The only downside is that I think the not free version is quite a bit expensive, especially for a mere habit tracking app, and especially considering that all of the features it has and offers in the paid version could be done with other apps that are free (like apps that come with an iPhone). Nevertheless, this is still an amazing app and it has helped me with habit tracking.
Works well, but...
by Imperialmeasures on 2019/06/24 05:04
I like how this app is set up and what you can do with it. It is really good for keeping track of the things that I need to do. However, it is clear to me that this app really isn’t free. In the free version, you can set 5 habits, which doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what I need to keep track of on a daily basis. maybe of all i wanted to do was remind myself to go to the gym every day, it would be usable, but then you could just use one of the free apps that comes on the iphone. I understand that the developers want to make money, but the subscription pricing model is a big turn-off for be and i assume based on other reviews many other people. The price is really not that expensive, but personally i would rather have ads than have to pay $30 a year for an app that really does not do anything particularly interesting or unique. It’s nice to have, but for me, it’s not worth having to pay a per year price indefinitely when i could do exactly the same things, mind you less conveniently, with a free service like google calendar. So maybe if this app had a one time payment or ads i would use it, but currently, i am not prepared to spend 30 dollars a year so that i can be reminded to go to the gym.

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.
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.
Every update has a massive bug
by Kingdorothy on 2020/05/11 10:26
I’m so sad... this app literally keeps my life running, yet every time they update it there is a huge bug and it causes you to lose your streaks or the way your habits are organized. Previously it wasn’t even showing habits that were “non-daily” and now it won’t show a “complete” day even when you’ve completed all daily tasks it acts as if you need to have completed any weekly / bi-weekly / monthly tasks to have a perfect day, even though you should only need to have marked those as complete before the end of the week / month etc. This app was perfect because it was simple and effective, please just LOCK DOWN the basic functions, it’s so saddening to have my streaks constantly messed up by no fault of my own. LAST update: I finally gave up on this app today. Extremely disappointed. After months of emailing the developers and being told they were aware of the issues nothing is resolved. I highly recommend you just go spend the few bucks and download “Done” instead. It’s super minimal but at least it actually WORKS. This had the potential to be great, but the glitches and unworkable bugs have caused me to delete something I PAID for.
Scheduling Habit
by Katherinesings on 2018/09/24 16:42
Organizational aids and visual tools are imperative to progress for my day. **I have already bought the Premium option. But, if there was anything that make the all-amazing app the ALL-IN-ONE for me it would be to be able to drag and drop tasks onto a daily schedule (dare I say like Time Finder app). It allows you to set up a full schedule, see at a glance where you are on a time line with your tasks- copy and repeat days to minimize fuss.... AND linking that to one’s calendar, including that content with all of your appointments?? That would be the biggest stress reliever for me EVER! Moving times that the task was completed, even just for that day, and being able to look back at the pattern of when certain tasks were better able to be executed than other times of the day. It would serve as a visual aid in my time management, instead of sort of feeling like I’m living aimlessly from one random chime to the next. Please consider. :)
Nice app but lacking some important features.
by -Gatherer on 2017/10/01 12:16
I’m a premium user of this app, and overall it’s nice looking and moderately functional. My biggest complaint is that it’s almost useless for data tracking. I meditate pretty much every day, but I consider doing it at least five days a week a success. So I went ahead and set the goal for five days a week. I meditated five days in a row, and suddenly I’ve lost the option to track it anymore for that week. Say I meditate every day for a week, I can’t track that under the five days setting. Meaning if I want to go back in time to see what days I usually miss, notice any patterns in the data—I’m out of luck. If I set it to the every day setting, and I miss a day, I lose my streak in the habit. Either I set it to five days, and I can’t keep accurate data records, or I set it to a week and I lose the motivation of maintaining a streak. It’s a really big flaw in the app and it would be nice to have it fixed. At least an option to allow a user to go over the set number of days would be nice, even if it wasn’t the default setting.
Disappointing, not intuitive enough, 7-day trail offer beware!
by MomWApps on 2019/07/04 03:34
Wanted to use the FREE 7 day trial to play around in this APP to see if it was the right fit. I ran into limited functions within the first five minutes. To use what felt like basic functions I was prompted to upgrade. I thought I was upgrading what I would be billed after the FREE to trial. That if I didn’t like what I experienced in the first 7 days, I could cancel. That’s what a FREE trial is. I wasn’t happy with the limited functions so I unlocked more. (What I needed to do was so basic. Set a reminder twice a day for one thing I needed to remember to do daily.) I was showing my teenager the functions and he laughed and said he couldn’t believe I paid for it. I was showing him because if he liked what he saw in the TRIAL on my phone, I was going to get it for him too. I decided in the same day I downloaded it, it wasn’t for me. It was too complicated, not intuitive enough. I went to cancel the trial and I was already billed for a full year! I stopped my subscription but it won’t end until JULY 3, 2020! My FREE trial started July 3, 2019. AND ON THE SAME DAY I’M BILLED FOR A FULL YEAR. No refund. It really makes me mad. It’s not right. Beware of the “free trial.”
Update: Still Using the App Daily!
by ChelsBug88 on 2019/08/21 19:07
UPDATE:: Still using the app daily to track my habits, I know I’m going to do things like walk my dog, drink water, brush teeth, but it is easy to check it off my “did today” list and the little push to keep up with things like tidying my bedroom or dishes is pretty motivating!! So 2-weeks later I’m still on a roll! Yay! First day of downloading:: “I just downloaded this app and got it started today, but so far it’s easy enough. The layout of using the app is kind of confusing, I thought I could add things for specific dates, but that’s okay that I can’t. I’ve started adding simple things like drinking water, walking the dog, etc... it does already feel good when I can mark things “done”. I just know personally I get bored easily with apps I have to use daily but since this doesn’t require writing things down or jotting anything in the app I might actually have a reason to want to keep using it!! 🙂”
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
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&#39;t seem to do that. I thought it did once actually but it looks like it doesn&#39;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&#39;t work for me anymore and balanced is gone. Fortunately i can just download it still from the backup so I&#39;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.
Fantastic app! Please don’t use if you don’t like the price
by LisaT0611 on 2019/09/08 05:45
This app is working great for me. I needed an app to remind me of my daily supplements intake, at different times of a day, and some other various habits like what time to go to bed, doing some stretches in the middle of a working days. This app did just that but in a really convenient way, much better than just the free reminder app. I especially love the Siri shortcut to signal completion of the task. Please stop complaining if you’re not happy about the pricing structure. The free reminder is there on your phone to do a decent job if you’re not willing to pay. I understand not everyone is willing to pay a certain prices for certain things but you simply don’t buy something if it’s out of your budget or you wait for a sale, not giving it bad review based on their prices you’re not willing to pay
Cool app, could use some more features
by Mrs Tyler on 2019/05/31 11:02
I literally just downloaded this app, and will probably revise my number of stars once I get better acquainted with it, but I wanted to share this thought before I forget... I think it would be cool if you added the feature to tap certain goals each time you do them. Like for example: posture. I need to check/correct my posture more than 3 times per day, but that’s the most frequent option the app allows. I’d like to be able to tap my posture goal each time I check/correct my posture, and for the app to keep a count of how many times I did that throughout the morning/afternoon/evening/day/week. And that tap count option would be something you could toggle on/off for any task. Then I can see how engaged I am with that task, since good posture ultimately and ideally needs to be done 100% of the time that I’m awake. This feature could help me track how my engagement with this task improves/declines day to day and week to week.
Shameful there’s no free option at all
by amber hates canva on 2019/04/21 01:00
So sad. This app used to be free but now you can’t use it at all without shoving out $30. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive as the only changes I’ve noticed is geo tagging habits? I understand it’s only $2.50 a month but my mind still can’t justify why, seems just desperate. Wish they introduced any free option, maybe with ads. But not having that option at all, even with limited functionality, is very disappointing. It just seems like, it’s all about money and that’s it. Also saw a note that if you paid before ($3.99 for unlimited use) you can restore that purchase. That’s great for some people but my Apple ID is different. Sounds like I’m out of luck. UPDATE//free option is available—when prompted to try free before subscribing just click the x to be taken to the app. Wish this was clearer, there should be something that says “try free option”. Either way, happy it’s free. The aesthetic and modern vibe of the app is great but that shady little trick about subscribing is disappointing
Scam!
by juju10537 on 2018/11/02 05:13
I got the app and decided after a couple of days that it wasn’t a good fit for me, so when I went to unsubscribe from it, there was no option to unsubscribe as there usually is with apps. After messing with it for awhile, I assumed there was no option to unsubscribe because I wasn’t going to be billed anything - I ended up getting billed $23 all of a sudden, a month later, for an app I don’t even use! I’m a broke college student - I can’t afford to lose that money. The option to unsubscribe NEEDS to be more available and user-friendly. Edit: I’m fully aware that manually unsubscribing from the app is necessary, as is with most apps, but there is literally no option to opt out under those settings - the button in red font at the bottom of the page that should be there is nonexistent, but it’s present in the other apps I have. As I said above, I already tried to unsubscribe but eventually assumed that I wasn’t going to be charged since every other app I had, and the format of the page in the tutorial, included a very obvious “unsubscribe” button. I’d just like to know what my options are for getting my money refunded.
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.
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&#39;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&#39;m now back at zero. I&#39;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 &#34;We&#39;re working on it.&#34; From there I didn&#39;t hear from them. I have emailed them two more times, without a word back, which was over a week ago. I&#39;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.
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 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.
A little expensive but great!
by KML67 on 2020/05/26 17:11
I am currently only on the free trial, but out of all the habit apps I’ve tried, I like the mix of simplicity with some more complicated features. You can group the habits you want to focus on into times of day or all day and you can log goals like number of glasses of water too, without the annoying nagging, motivational quotes and constant notifications of some other apps. It’s perfect if you already know what habits you want to build and don’t need to be convinced that it will help you, although it gives some suggestions if you want ideas. I do miss the days where you could buy an app for $5 or less and not pay a subscription or hefty lifetime access fee :/ it’s not crazily expensive, but there are other apps out there for cheaper with many of the same functions.
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!
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.
Great app but.. Always a catch
by Aroi lama on 2019/07/31 17:37
The app is really good and I like the concept. Except i can barely use it. I can’t put more than two habits in and there’s a constant ad/reminder for their subscription which is frustrating. Then on top of that there is no option for a one time fee altogether. I understand people have to make income off the app but it shouldn’t be listed as free since in order to use it to be productive you have to pay money. It’s really disappointing but hopefully I find a better app with a similar concept. Update: I only ended up downloading this app because this is the first app advertised and I liked the color scheme. The reply they gave was generic and seem to place the blame on the consumer versus taking responsibility like they do with positive reviews. The app along with the price is simply just a waste of time. There is other apps with the same concept that does more which are free or offer a reasonable one time purchase which will save money. Please look elsewhere because this will increase and encourage other apps with basic use to add subscriptions.
Could be better.
by Rings_of_kaylers on 2018/11/28 14:56
The Productive app seems to be a great app, allowing you to keep up with habits and reminds you of events or tasks you need to complete. Yet, the amount of ads it has promoting itself is distasteful and will bug out to where you can not add another task. The main screen also has another bug. The text that comes down when you’re adding a new habit will merge with the line of text that comes up stating that you don’t have any tasks at the moment, but later in the day. I’m disappointed that such a highly ranked productivity app does not simply have a tab in the settings area asking if you want to upgrade or not. As an example, the P. Schedule has this system to where you can upgrade for better quality, but you aren’t bombarded with ads asking you for a yearly membership. And for an app that hasn’t been updated in 11 months, I think I’d give my money to them. Until this type of problem is fixed or becomes less of an annoyance, I will not be using this app any longer.
Skip Justification Option?
by Raider1317 on 2019/02/18 00:31
So far I am enjoying it and it is helping me with my various tasks. I would like to see though, a feature where I can make a task as ‘optional’ or something to where if I don’t do it/skip it, it wouldn’t count as a negative strike for it. Or maybe have a justification block come up to explain why I can’t do a task. For example: I have a task to hit the gym in the morning but sometimes I can’t because I have to go into the office instead to get some work done which makes me then ‘skip’ it. But for those days I have another hit the gym task set in the afternoon just in case I can’t make the morning one. So at some point, one of those hit the gym tasks is going to be ‘skipped’ since I’ll do the other one. Unless I’m missing a setting or setting these up completely wrong I would like to see this feature added so it doesn’t seem like I’m always skipping something.
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.
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 &amp; 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 &amp; difficult to use. PLEASE ROLLBACK OR PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION!!!!!!
Simple, motivating
by mbrumm on 2019/11/03 01:26
This is a very well thought out app. I use it not only to help me with forming new habits, but to keep me focused on what I need to do in my normal everyday routine. I love how you only see what you need to accomplish in morning, afternoon, and evening. That alone helps me not to feel overwhelmed, which is a problem I have with the everyday mundane stuff I usually put off. I love how you can very simply change the order of your habits without inputting the the time they need to be done- I don&#39;t like the pressure of racing the clock for mundane stuff. And if you do need reminders, you have the option to create them for each habit. I love the robust options of how often you want to perform the habits- specific days, times per week or month, etc. Excellent! Completely worth paying for the upgrade! Money well spent.
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.
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.
Everything and more!
by 👿Tristan on 2020/01/12 04:02
This is the best routine app I’ve used. It’s not to pushy, you aren’t given negative points if you miss a habit. You don’t start your streak all the way at zero. For me, I don’t even necessarily intend to go 7/7 each week, and given the option to skip when needed is awesome. My ONE complaint is that changing a habits frequency ruins the streak. For example, I have been trying to get better at Spanish I have a habit set for each morning. That’s all fine and well, but now that I’m really getting into it I would like to change it to twice a day, once at night and still once in the morning. But doing this would make me lose my 30+ day streak ): so I just created a second, identical habit, but I could see this getting messy if I find I want to increase other habit frequencies as well.
Impressive
by Lalablahci md on 2018/01/05 03:36
I honestly really enjoy this app! I’ve been able to keep up my daily habits much more frequently. I’ve tried other habit trackers in the past and it just wasn’t as effective. I this app has various options. The scheduling really helps, as well as he option to boost one particular habit. I’ve made noticeable growth in my yoga practice and haven’t stopped since (: This app has really helped me to put my habits into practice. I throughly enjoy it. I even bought the premium version. And I NEVER buy apps. But I’m glad I made he small investment. My only thing is, I wish maybe it was more informative. I think it’s a wonderful app. But sections on science behind habits would be awesome, or studies concerning habits and providing that to the public, maybe the premium users. I think it’s wonderful, but it’s definitely missing something (: The stats are nice but I barely ever use them.
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
Gets you focused and then gets out of the way
by zshall on 2017/12/05 00:55
I’ve been using Productive for 9 months and I start and end every day with it. Adding new tasks is fast and it’s easy to set and modify schedules as you go. The concept of “perfect days” has been especially motivating since it pushes me further. It may have been a long day and I might be tired but the app will tell me that if I just get the mail and clean up my kitchen it’ll be perfect, and so I do. I haven’t gotten behind on my chores in months anymore and I’m never at a loss for what needs doing. Besides chores, adding other activities like exercising or reading has helped motivate me to do those more often. This is a simple tracker but the essentials are very well polished, and it doesn’t feel weighted down with too many options. Super nice app overall!
Pay for a subscription? $3.99
by Tim Jordan on 2018/03/05 18:03
This a great app but instead of having a option of buying it like they used to have now you have to subscribe currently at $3.99 a month. This subscription trend is something we as consumers need not support. If you think you will just use the 5 reminders for free and not subscribe think again. The ads to subscribe are near ever present! Why not give consumers a way to buy it once for a higher price. It looks like they can raise the rate any old time they choose (fine print) meaning you will have to pay more or get a new app. Highly annoying for me as a consumer. It’s a good app. However the way they are forcing ads on you is annoying. DON’T SUPPORT THIS TREND. Please rate all these subscription type apps with one star and then just don’t buy them. If you support subscription apps soon that is all we will have. As consumers you have a voice. They won’t give you a choice later if they want to raise rates. This type of pricing is not consumer friendly and should not be supported by the marketplace.
Pricy & highly limited...
by Frustration isnt the word. on 2019/06/29 10:38
I could really use extra help remembering everything when I have a daily list of a million and one things to do but at the cost per year on top of my living expenses, I just couldn&#39;t see this being any better than a reminder on my phone thats not costing me a subscription every month/year. I would have gave a better rating if I had any chance at using it without so many limitations. I&#39;d rather deal with ads for the free version than to be limited as much as the free version sits now. It seems reasonable for the price unless you do more work than what you actually are paid for and let&#39;s face it, that&#39;s the reality of working class America. Not cost effective or considerate of supporting the lower class efforts in succeeding much like the rest of the tax free high class. Smart people work towards cutting out the unnecessary cost in order to get ahead and while the idea of this app is nice, it&#39;s not bringing any competition to it&#39;s competitors let alone effectively supporting the very market it&#39;s looking to attract.

A joke & a Scam
by E-Connection on 2020/07/05 07:01
Developer: you got everybody’s money why not make the app work! Unless I’m missing something, along with all the other limited functionality, iCloud sync does not even sync. Please explain to me your definition of sync; does that mean simply export? What is it syncing to? I can’t use any of my other devices for your subscription price? Does that make sense? Developer: Noticeable too are your apologetic, no commitment responses. Why not tell us what you’re going to do and do it. You know what we want, why not fix it and maybe we’ll keep or maintain our subscription. At present, I’m looking to go back to my free app which does much more and more user friendly.
Restarts challenges

I didn’t fail the challenge, but for some reason the app decided opposite and there is no way to change it.
App Doesn’t Open
by Pandnfjapabf fbwoqskfbf on 2020/07/04 16:41
I used this app for a little while and found that it didn’t fit my lifestyle. No harm no foul, but after forgetting to cancel my subscription I decided to give it another go. The app straight up doesn’t open now. I’ve tried re-downloading and seeking support through Apalon’s website to no avail. The app will appear open when I swipe up and right to look at my open apps, but selecting it will lead back to the home screen and give me no option to interact with it. Completely broken.

I love the schedule format, breaks up my day into manageable parts that help a lot. This is the best productivity app I’ve seen so far. Thank you!
Very organized yet simple

Liked this app. It was easy to use and kept me really Organized. However the price threw me off until they offered a 70% off code! Then I made the purchase.
Sync across devices?
by DON DAVIE A on 2020/07/03 04:39
Is this a premium feature? Can’t get it to sync with my iPad...
Does not synchronize with Apple products
by Aleksandra.soul on 2020/07/02 19:14
I bought Productive subscription for a year last year and forgot about it in three months as it was not sending me the reminders I set. Also the app would randomly send me a notification on my Apple Watch once in a while, but it did not send all of the set notifications.
Very Elegant and Simple

The app is great for tracking the progress of your activity’s but I notice I have to pay for a lot of things and I have to pay to get reminders which is one of the reasons why I got this app
This app is trash!!!

Great app but
by Rendezvous Productions on 2020/07/02 05:33
Great app, unfortunately I find myself needing a reminder feature but it’s under a monthly subscription so I’m going to have to pass. I would definitely consider buying a one time purchase of even $20 for a lifetime subscription. Till then, I’ll switch over to another To Do list.
Keeps crashing :(
by namastekyrie on 2020/07/02 02:57
I was going to start using this app again after a bit of a hiatus, however, even after updating it and reinstalling, it won’t open. I’ve been using Trello more lately anyway, so I may just stick with that and delete this one instead. I did love this app back when I first started using it a few years ago though! Hopefully it works better for others.

by Crimsonnicole on 2020/06/29 14:56
I am loving this app so far. I am someone that can’t change too much at a time. I have my most important habit on a 7 day streak and I’m adding a second habit in today. The app is easy to navigate and to make changes to your habits.
Great App!

This app is great I just wish it was completely free.
Sync issues
by AppleClient1555 on 2020/06/29 06:55
I was looking forward to using this app more routinely. The interface is stellar and you can tell the developers put a lot of thought in the app. Great options for tweaking how each habit should work for you. It allows you to look at your habit trends over time. My gripe though, is that it doesn’t sync between devices. I have an iPad and an iPhone with the app signed in under my Apple account, with a subscribed premium option. No dice. No transfer between devices. Supports been very slow to respond and thus far unhelpful. Great option still for single device users though.

by sophievanhorn on 2020/06/29 02:50
Absolutely love this app! Only 2.5$ a month when you break it down and it is the perfect way to crest new habits while maintaining old ones!
Good app but too expensive
by sm22862 on 2020/06/28 19:54
Just use TimeBloc!!!! It’s free and has more features than this app!
Don’t trust iCloud backup.
by True_northman on 2020/06/28 14:47
Purchased the annual plan and used for several months. Changed devices and lost months worth of data, even though I had iCloud sync enabled. Contacted support and they were basically like “sorry about that. Can’t help you”. This is a critical feature that’s broken. I’m requesting a refund from Apple. Two stars for a decent interface. Minus three for irresponsible management of my data, and the fact that you can’t retroactively create completed tasks. Your chain has to start from the day you created the goal. Lame.
Does not sync to devices/ new challenges errors
by Danvan2001 on 2020/06/28 13:23
I love this app, I have absolutely used it every single day multiple times a day since purchasing. It is simple not overwhelming to just get started and tick away your chores or goals. I’ve reported a problem three times asking for support to get my iPhone app to sync habit and progress with my iPad. This is a paid app so I would expect far better support on trying to accomplish this. New app feature “challenges”. Does not accurately record you selecting complete for the day. I will check the progress bar to make sure before closing it for the day. The next am it says the streak is broken and I must reset the challenge. I’d suggest adding the swipe feature here too since press selection is unreliable.
Starting off strong!
by veaniesbeanie on 2020/06/28 05:32
Day 2- - I have just started using this app. So far, it is doing well! I wouldn’t say it is exceeding my expectations or anything but, I do recommend this app if you’re unorganized and need to get rid of or gain habits like me! I will add more to this review a few weeks or day in! :)
Productivity on a new level!
by SomeBoiledEggs on 2020/06/27 16:23
I got this app in hopes of helping me complete my to do list faster and with more ease. And it did just that! This app gives you a greater sense of accomplishment as well as motivation, when I normally would not have any. Definitely a great app to download! 100% worthy of five stars!
Helps me stay consistent with my routine

App gets straight to the point, the interface makes it really easy to assign habits and tasks, and comes with lots of helpful suggestions to get you started. Great if you’re looking for something fun and easy to keep you accountable!
Great
by Eva Barger on 2020/06/26 16:43
I think this app is great for anyone in general, but especially for people with anxiety or depression or any other mental illness that makes it difficult to get through your day and accomplish “small” things. Even without paying for the full app, I was still able to put most of the habits I wanted to complete (drinking more water, exercising, practicing my violin, and meditating) The only I don’t give it 5 stars is because I don’t have the premium upgrade or whatever it is called. However, if you days are kinda hectic and you like keeping tract of what you’ve done and such, I’d say go ahead and pay for it. Love this app especially for the harder days where doing something simple seems like the most difficult task.
Good app

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.
Not free
by Valkyrssss on 2020/06/25 03:37
This app is not free at all! I downloaded it and was immediately asked to pay a monthly subscription. Ridiculous! Don&#39;t advertise as free when it’s not!! Deleted immediately
Productive rating
by Dad Jr on 2020/06/24 18:54
Productive is a good app with a nice schedule, but I am 10 years old whose mom won’t let him spend his money on apps. So in other words I can’t spend the money for the membership and i have a lot of chores and only five slots. I would give this app five stars if they would give me unlimited slots.
Wonderful

by USER$$4237 on 2020/06/24 11:37
I think this app is really good! It can get people focused without having to write lists on lists. However, the only thing that I have found is that the free version allows you to only add a few habits to your list, which is a bit annoying. Overall it’s a great app!
Great

Did not honor my subscription cancellation
by mjbrazz on 2020/06/23 18:21
I unsubscribed through the App Store. Then, the app offered me a 0% discount as their “sorry to see you go” offer. Very disappointed in how this was handled.

Way too expensive—
by justinspace on 2020/06/22 06:34
This app is way pricey for what it is. I got sucked into the year subscription cause I forgot to cancel on the 7th day of my trial. Totally not worth $30 for the whole year. There are better apps out there that do so much more that are $10 for life. Such a rip off, don’t waste your money.
Aggressive Ads
by gamewombat on 2020/06/22 03:08
Cool app, ads for the paid plan are so aggressive I gave up on it.
Not really free
by dani0010 on 2020/06/21 03:10
The free mode has so many prompts to upgrade to paid that it’s practically unusable. It’s like browsing a clickbait site.

by Abigale Loopez on 2020/06/19 04:24
I was happy with the app. It worked perfectly fine. It got the job done and in my opinion, it made me want to get the things I had to do done! The only reason why it is not a five star is because the ad for the “premium” version keeps popping up. Another thing is that you can only have so many tasks. There is a limit which I feel like there shouldn’t be cause you may have a busy day. Other than that, I love it!!
Slick UI, Little Substance
by Adam Smoove on 2020/06/18 22:21
Everything looks great in the UI, but it actually doesn’t functionally behave like a goal tracker. For example, here’s how I would track “learning algebra” through the UI description provided by Productive “I want to have 8 reps of studying algebra repeated every week as often as once every week” Now in actually tracking that goal on day 1 I enter in I’ve done two reps for learning algebra. (In my case these correspond to pomodoros). Now day 2 comes around and I want to track more Algebra. That goal has been removed by Productive. I can’t input any additional Algebra studying on day 2. Why? Because Productive makes bad assumptions about how you’re using the app, highly constricted to its views about what goal tracking is. So if you didn’t get all the reps for algebra in on Day 1 well you just have to wait another week. Bruh.. So for as pretty as this app is, don’t expect anything more than a elevated to-do list. Don’t buy this.
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.
Good, but barely works without subscription
by Brick Cliffton on 2020/06/18 15:47
For the most of the functionality that people would want from an app for helping you build new habits (like reminders to do the habit), you’re basically going to have to pay for the subscription.
Great app!
by dxrxtdfcuvygbiy on 2020/06/18 13:39
I really helps me get organized and keep a structured day! One thing is I wish you could do a little more with out having to pay because you really cant do much. Overall great though!
Subscription problems
by vick96 on 2020/06/18 13:03
I don’t have the normal option to cancel my subscription in settings with this app. They make it difficult in order for you to keep paying the subscription
I’ve tried them all and this one wins HANDS DOWN
by kol lin on 2020/06/18 06:19
This is an elegant, compact and highly versatile habit tracker. It’s very easy to get started but it is flexible enough to allow for some real customization once you get going. The touch interface for checking off habits is perfectly integrated and everything feels well thought out and highly intuitive. Oh and did I mention the user interface?? Clean, elegant and minimalist. Providing the perfect balance between being informative while not being overwhelming. ::My only nitpick is I would like to have the percentage of habits completed daily be represented graphically. Right now the app only distinguishes between some and all habits completed. It would be great to visually identify the percentage of habits completed on a daily basis.
Great app

Draining my battery?

Seriously guys, why f up what might be a nice product/service by being so unpleasantly aggressive from the get go?

Routine needed
by pollitoismyname on 2020/06/15 13:26
I really like the app the only criticism I’ll give it is when setting up a morning routine I can’t make them go in an order of my choosing easily, I have to write them all down and put them in backwards or I’ve found a little glitch where I can stop the habit change the time of it and then resume and it works for only some of the habits, I can’t find a way to make it convient to order the habits into a routine and not just some Random checklist.
Overall it’s great
by hiiiiiiiaye on 2020/06/15 12:38
It’s really helpful for building habits and easy to use, however, I really don’t like that every time I want to adjust my existing habit for example expand the duration, or just change the habit from morning to afternoon, the app will wipe away all the specific habit data and give me to start from the beginning, it’s not a big deal yes, but it’s that psychological mindset of “I’ve done so much!” To keep forming the habit and pushing and motivate ppl, when the app take that achievement away for now reason that it kinda kill the app’s purpose of helping ppl to form a good habit. Would strongly suggest the company to change it soon
Thank you developers!!

Surprised to see only one religion privileged
by hootview on 2020/06/12 04:14
Trying out this app, primarily to spur me on in prayer and listening to scripture. I was surprised to see only one religion, current Americanized pop Buddhism, privileged to exclude all others. Suggested religious habits recommended meditating, doing yoga, and mindfulness. Only one religious symbol, the yin/yan, offered. Why not include praying salat for Muslims, studying Torah and prayer for Jews, prayer/ scripture/ creed/ confession/ veneration for Christians? Why not include symbols like a crescent, star of David, and a cross? Was hoping this was an app that respected diversity, belonging, and inclusion. But it excludes the majority of the world’s population in an Abrahamic religion.

Pretty Good App
by Jassy748 on 2020/06/11 16:57
I got this app to help me with my habits and I gotta admit it feels good to slide the little check mark. The problem is a bunch of extra stuff makes you need to buy the subscription. For example we can’t have reminders for our habits and there is a limit to how many habits we can create without the subscription.

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.

by littledoe16 on 2020/06/10 00:31
This app is ok so far but, the one thing I don’t like is you have to pay to have it remind you to do something. yes you create a habit but it won’t remind you by sound without paying for it . I personal think it should be free to do that. I understand if you have 5 for more then yes you can pay to upgrade but if your like me that only needs 2 reminders then it should be free wishing I didn’t download this app because you basically have to pay for everything. Just another app that I don’t need and wasted.

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!

I&#39;m 16 and I got this app to keep track of chores and other daily habits I often forget. It&#39;s exactly what I needed. I&#39;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&#39;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&#39;t counted as missed until the day is over, which keeps my motivation for the streaks up. It&#39;s the perfect level of simplicity for me. My only complaint is that I have to pay a subscription for more habits! I don&#39;t really care about whatever else comes with premium. I love this app and it&#39;s exactly what I need but I can&#39;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&#39;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.
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.
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.
Quite a good app
by 17374850483761919384649 on 2018/06/19 01:53
I especially appreciate this app, since the calendar it has tracks when you do things and when you don’t do things. This gives you a satisfying cross-off of the days of the week you do the things you planned, making you feel compelled to keep up the task instead of putting it off another day. That being said, all of the features (in the free version at least) besides reminders can be done using a regular calendar, which would give you an even more satisfying cross-off since it is being done physically. However, I would still recommend this app, for people who are still struggling with procrastination, since it isn’t the laziness but rather the will, and personally the will has kept me going with this app. The only downside is that I think the not free version is quite a bit expensive, especially for a mere habit tracking app, and especially considering that all of the features it has and offers in the paid version could be done with other apps that are free (like apps that come with an iPhone). Nevertheless, this is still an amazing app and it has helped me with habit tracking.
Works well, but...
by Imperialmeasures on 2019/06/24 05:04
I like how this app is set up and what you can do with it. It is really good for keeping track of the things that I need to do. However, it is clear to me that this app really isn’t free. In the free version, you can set 5 habits, which doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what I need to keep track of on a daily basis. maybe of all i wanted to do was remind myself to go to the gym every day, it would be usable, but then you could just use one of the free apps that comes on the iphone. I understand that the developers want to make money, but the subscription pricing model is a big turn-off for be and i assume based on other reviews many other people. The price is really not that expensive, but personally i would rather have ads than have to pay $30 a year for an app that really does not do anything particularly interesting or unique. It’s nice to have, but for me, it’s not worth having to pay a per year price indefinitely when i could do exactly the same things, mind you less conveniently, with a free service like google calendar. So maybe if this app had a one time payment or ads i would use it, but currently, i am not prepared to spend 30 dollars a year so that i can be reminded to go to the gym.
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.
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.
Every update has a massive bug
by Kingdorothy on 2020/05/11 10:26
I’m so sad... this app literally keeps my life running, yet every time they update it there is a huge bug and it causes you to lose your streaks or the way your habits are organized. Previously it wasn’t even showing habits that were “non-daily” and now it won’t show a “complete” day even when you’ve completed all daily tasks it acts as if you need to have completed any weekly / bi-weekly / monthly tasks to have a perfect day, even though you should only need to have marked those as complete before the end of the week / month etc. This app was perfect because it was simple and effective, please just LOCK DOWN the basic functions, it’s so saddening to have my streaks constantly messed up by no fault of my own. LAST update: I finally gave up on this app today. Extremely disappointed. After months of emailing the developers and being told they were aware of the issues nothing is resolved. I highly recommend you just go spend the few bucks and download “Done” instead. It’s super minimal but at least it actually WORKS. This had the potential to be great, but the glitches and unworkable bugs have caused me to delete something I PAID for.
Scheduling Habit
by Katherinesings on 2018/09/24 16:42
Organizational aids and visual tools are imperative to progress for my day. **I have already bought the Premium option. But, if there was anything that make the all-amazing app the ALL-IN-ONE for me it would be to be able to drag and drop tasks onto a daily schedule (dare I say like Time Finder app). It allows you to set up a full schedule, see at a glance where you are on a time line with your tasks- copy and repeat days to minimize fuss.... AND linking that to one’s calendar, including that content with all of your appointments?? That would be the biggest stress reliever for me EVER! Moving times that the task was completed, even just for that day, and being able to look back at the pattern of when certain tasks were better able to be executed than other times of the day. It would serve as a visual aid in my time management, instead of sort of feeling like I’m living aimlessly from one random chime to the next. Please consider. :)
Nice app but lacking some important features.
by -Gatherer on 2017/10/01 12:16
I’m a premium user of this app, and overall it’s nice looking and moderately functional. My biggest complaint is that it’s almost useless for data tracking. I meditate pretty much every day, but I consider doing it at least five days a week a success. So I went ahead and set the goal for five days a week. I meditated five days in a row, and suddenly I’ve lost the option to track it anymore for that week. Say I meditate every day for a week, I can’t track that under the five days setting. Meaning if I want to go back in time to see what days I usually miss, notice any patterns in the data—I’m out of luck. If I set it to the every day setting, and I miss a day, I lose my streak in the habit. Either I set it to five days, and I can’t keep accurate data records, or I set it to a week and I lose the motivation of maintaining a streak. It’s a really big flaw in the app and it would be nice to have it fixed. At least an option to allow a user to go over the set number of days would be nice, even if it wasn’t the default setting.
Disappointing, not intuitive enough, 7-day trail offer beware!
by MomWApps on 2019/07/04 03:34
Wanted to use the FREE 7 day trial to play around in this APP to see if it was the right fit. I ran into limited functions within the first five minutes. To use what felt like basic functions I was prompted to upgrade. I thought I was upgrading what I would be billed after the FREE to trial. That if I didn’t like what I experienced in the first 7 days, I could cancel. That’s what a FREE trial is. I wasn’t happy with the limited functions so I unlocked more. (What I needed to do was so basic. Set a reminder twice a day for one thing I needed to remember to do daily.) I was showing my teenager the functions and he laughed and said he couldn’t believe I paid for it. I was showing him because if he liked what he saw in the TRIAL on my phone, I was going to get it for him too. I decided in the same day I downloaded it, it wasn’t for me. It was too complicated, not intuitive enough. I went to cancel the trial and I was already billed for a full year! I stopped my subscription but it won’t end until JULY 3, 2020! My FREE trial started July 3, 2019. AND ON THE SAME DAY I’M BILLED FOR A FULL YEAR. No refund. It really makes me mad. It’s not right. Beware of the “free trial.”
Update: Still Using the App Daily!
by ChelsBug88 on 2019/08/21 19:07
UPDATE:: Still using the app daily to track my habits, I know I’m going to do things like walk my dog, drink water, brush teeth, but it is easy to check it off my “did today” list and the little push to keep up with things like tidying my bedroom or dishes is pretty motivating!! So 2-weeks later I’m still on a roll! Yay! First day of downloading:: “I just downloaded this app and got it started today, but so far it’s easy enough. The layout of using the app is kind of confusing, I thought I could add things for specific dates, but that’s okay that I can’t. I’ve started adding simple things like drinking water, walking the dog, etc... it does already feel good when I can mark things “done”. I just know personally I get bored easily with apps I have to use daily but since this doesn’t require writing things down or jotting anything in the app I might actually have a reason to want to keep using it!! 🙂”
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
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&#39;t seem to do that. I thought it did once actually but it looks like it doesn&#39;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&#39;t work for me anymore and balanced is gone. Fortunately i can just download it still from the backup so I&#39;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.
Fantastic app! Please don’t use if you don’t like the price
by LisaT0611 on 2019/09/08 05:45
This app is working great for me. I needed an app to remind me of my daily supplements intake, at different times of a day, and some other various habits like what time to go to bed, doing some stretches in the middle of a working days. This app did just that but in a really convenient way, much better than just the free reminder app. I especially love the Siri shortcut to signal completion of the task. Please stop complaining if you’re not happy about the pricing structure. The free reminder is there on your phone to do a decent job if you’re not willing to pay. I understand not everyone is willing to pay a certain prices for certain things but you simply don’t buy something if it’s out of your budget or you wait for a sale, not giving it bad review based on their prices you’re not willing to pay
Cool app, could use some more features
by Mrs Tyler on 2019/05/31 11:02
I literally just downloaded this app, and will probably revise my number of stars once I get better acquainted with it, but I wanted to share this thought before I forget... I think it would be cool if you added the feature to tap certain goals each time you do them. Like for example: posture. I need to check/correct my posture more than 3 times per day, but that’s the most frequent option the app allows. I’d like to be able to tap my posture goal each time I check/correct my posture, and for the app to keep a count of how many times I did that throughout the morning/afternoon/evening/day/week. And that tap count option would be something you could toggle on/off for any task. Then I can see how engaged I am with that task, since good posture ultimately and ideally needs to be done 100% of the time that I’m awake. This feature could help me track how my engagement with this task improves/declines day to day and week to week.
Shameful there’s no free option at all
by amber hates canva on 2019/04/21 01:00
So sad. This app used to be free but now you can’t use it at all without shoving out $30. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive as the only changes I’ve noticed is geo tagging habits? I understand it’s only $2.50 a month but my mind still can’t justify why, seems just desperate. Wish they introduced any free option, maybe with ads. But not having that option at all, even with limited functionality, is very disappointing. It just seems like, it’s all about money and that’s it. Also saw a note that if you paid before ($3.99 for unlimited use) you can restore that purchase. That’s great for some people but my Apple ID is different. Sounds like I’m out of luck. UPDATE//free option is available—when prompted to try free before subscribing just click the x to be taken to the app. Wish this was clearer, there should be something that says “try free option”. Either way, happy it’s free. The aesthetic and modern vibe of the app is great but that shady little trick about subscribing is disappointing
Scam!
by juju10537 on 2018/11/02 05:13
I got the app and decided after a couple of days that it wasn’t a good fit for me, so when I went to unsubscribe from it, there was no option to unsubscribe as there usually is with apps. After messing with it for awhile, I assumed there was no option to unsubscribe because I wasn’t going to be billed anything - I ended up getting billed $23 all of a sudden, a month later, for an app I don’t even use! I’m a broke college student - I can’t afford to lose that money. The option to unsubscribe NEEDS to be more available and user-friendly. Edit: I’m fully aware that manually unsubscribing from the app is necessary, as is with most apps, but there is literally no option to opt out under those settings - the button in red font at the bottom of the page that should be there is nonexistent, but it’s present in the other apps I have. As I said above, I already tried to unsubscribe but eventually assumed that I wasn’t going to be charged since every other app I had, and the format of the page in the tutorial, included a very obvious “unsubscribe” button. I’d just like to know what my options are for getting my money refunded.
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.
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&#39;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&#39;m now back at zero. I&#39;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 &#34;We&#39;re working on it.&#34; From there I didn&#39;t hear from them. I have emailed them two more times, without a word back, which was over a week ago. I&#39;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.
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 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.
A little expensive but great!
by KML67 on 2020/05/26 17:11
I am currently only on the free trial, but out of all the habit apps I’ve tried, I like the mix of simplicity with some more complicated features. You can group the habits you want to focus on into times of day or all day and you can log goals like number of glasses of water too, without the annoying nagging, motivational quotes and constant notifications of some other apps. It’s perfect if you already know what habits you want to build and don’t need to be convinced that it will help you, although it gives some suggestions if you want ideas. I do miss the days where you could buy an app for $5 or less and not pay a subscription or hefty lifetime access fee :/ it’s not crazily expensive, but there are other apps out there for cheaper with many of the same functions.
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!
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.
Great app but.. Always a catch
by Aroi lama on 2019/07/31 17:37
The app is really good and I like the concept. Except i can barely use it. I can’t put more than two habits in and there’s a constant ad/reminder for their subscription which is frustrating. Then on top of that there is no option for a one time fee altogether. I understand people have to make income off the app but it shouldn’t be listed as free since in order to use it to be productive you have to pay money. It’s really disappointing but hopefully I find a better app with a similar concept. Update: I only ended up downloading this app because this is the first app advertised and I liked the color scheme. The reply they gave was generic and seem to place the blame on the consumer versus taking responsibility like they do with positive reviews. The app along with the price is simply just a waste of time. There is other apps with the same concept that does more which are free or offer a reasonable one time purchase which will save money. Please look elsewhere because this will increase and encourage other apps with basic use to add subscriptions.
Could be better.
by Rings_of_kaylers on 2018/11/28 14:56
The Productive app seems to be a great app, allowing you to keep up with habits and reminds you of events or tasks you need to complete. Yet, the amount of ads it has promoting itself is distasteful and will bug out to where you can not add another task. The main screen also has another bug. The text that comes down when you’re adding a new habit will merge with the line of text that comes up stating that you don’t have any tasks at the moment, but later in the day. I’m disappointed that such a highly ranked productivity app does not simply have a tab in the settings area asking if you want to upgrade or not. As an example, the P. Schedule has this system to where you can upgrade for better quality, but you aren’t bombarded with ads asking you for a yearly membership. And for an app that hasn’t been updated in 11 months, I think I’d give my money to them. Until this type of problem is fixed or becomes less of an annoyance, I will not be using this app any longer.
Skip Justification Option?
by Raider1317 on 2019/02/18 00:31
So far I am enjoying it and it is helping me with my various tasks. I would like to see though, a feature where I can make a task as ‘optional’ or something to where if I don’t do it/skip it, it wouldn’t count as a negative strike for it. Or maybe have a justification block come up to explain why I can’t do a task. For example: I have a task to hit the gym in the morning but sometimes I can’t because I have to go into the office instead to get some work done which makes me then ‘skip’ it. But for those days I have another hit the gym task set in the afternoon just in case I can’t make the morning one. So at some point, one of those hit the gym tasks is going to be ‘skipped’ since I’ll do the other one. Unless I’m missing a setting or setting these up completely wrong I would like to see this feature added so it doesn’t seem like I’m always skipping something.
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.
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 &amp; 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 &amp; difficult to use. PLEASE ROLLBACK OR PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO REVERT TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION!!!!!!
Simple, motivating
by mbrumm on 2019/11/03 01:26
This is a very well thought out app. I use it not only to help me with forming new habits, but to keep me focused on what I need to do in my normal everyday routine. I love how you only see what you need to accomplish in morning, afternoon, and evening. That alone helps me not to feel overwhelmed, which is a problem I have with the everyday mundane stuff I usually put off. I love how you can very simply change the order of your habits without inputting the the time they need to be done- I don&#39;t like the pressure of racing the clock for mundane stuff. And if you do need reminders, you have the option to create them for each habit. I love the robust options of how often you want to perform the habits- specific days, times per week or month, etc. Excellent! Completely worth paying for the upgrade! Money well spent.
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.
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.
Everything and more!
by 👿Tristan on 2020/01/12 04:02
This is the best routine app I’ve used. It’s not to pushy, you aren’t given negative points if you miss a habit. You don’t start your streak all the way at zero. For me, I don’t even necessarily intend to go 7/7 each week, and given the option to skip when needed is awesome. My ONE complaint is that changing a habits frequency ruins the streak. For example, I have been trying to get better at Spanish I have a habit set for each morning. That’s all fine and well, but now that I’m really getting into it I would like to change it to twice a day, once at night and still once in the morning. But doing this would make me lose my 30+ day streak ): so I just created a second, identical habit, but I could see this getting messy if I find I want to increase other habit frequencies as well.
Impressive
by Lalablahci md on 2018/01/05 03:36
I honestly really enjoy this app! I’ve been able to keep up my daily habits much more frequently. I’ve tried other habit trackers in the past and it just wasn’t as effective. I this app has various options. The scheduling really helps, as well as he option to boost one particular habit. I’ve made noticeable growth in my yoga practice and haven’t stopped since (: This app has really helped me to put my habits into practice. I throughly enjoy it. I even bought the premium version. And I NEVER buy apps. But I’m glad I made he small investment. My only thing is, I wish maybe it was more informative. I think it’s a wonderful app. But sections on science behind habits would be awesome, or studies concerning habits and providing that to the public, maybe the premium users. I think it’s wonderful, but it’s definitely missing something (: The stats are nice but I barely ever use them.
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
Gets you focused and then gets out of the way
by zshall on 2017/12/05 00:55
I’ve been using Productive for 9 months and I start and end every day with it. Adding new tasks is fast and it’s easy to set and modify schedules as you go. The concept of “perfect days” has been especially motivating since it pushes me further. It may have been a long day and I might be tired but the app will tell me that if I just get the mail and clean up my kitchen it’ll be perfect, and so I do. I haven’t gotten behind on my chores in months anymore and I’m never at a loss for what needs doing. Besides chores, adding other activities like exercising or reading has helped motivate me to do those more often. This is a simple tracker but the essentials are very well polished, and it doesn’t feel weighted down with too many options. Super nice app overall!
Pay for a subscription? $3.99
by Tim Jordan on 2018/03/05 18:03
This a great app but instead of having a option of buying it like they used to have now you have to subscribe currently at $3.99 a month. This subscription trend is something we as consumers need not support. If you think you will just use the 5 reminders for free and not subscribe think again. The ads to subscribe are near ever present! Why not give consumers a way to buy it once for a higher price. It looks like they can raise the rate any old time they choose (fine print) meaning you will have to pay more or get a new app. Highly annoying for me as a consumer. It’s a good app. However the way they are forcing ads on you is annoying. DON’T SUPPORT THIS TREND. Please rate all these subscription type apps with one star and then just don’t buy them. If you support subscription apps soon that is all we will have. As consumers you have a voice. They won’t give you a choice later if they want to raise rates. This type of pricing is not consumer friendly and should not be supported by the marketplace.
Pricy & highly limited...
by Frustration isnt the word. on 2019/06/29 10:38
I could really use extra help remembering everything when I have a daily list of a million and one things to do but at the cost per year on top of my living expenses, I just couldn&#39;t see this being any better than a reminder on my phone thats not costing me a subscription every month/year. I would have gave a better rating if I had any chance at using it without so many limitations. I&#39;d rather deal with ads for the free version than to be limited as much as the free version sits now. It seems reasonable for the price unless you do more work than what you actually are paid for and let&#39;s face it, that&#39;s the reality of working class America. Not cost effective or considerate of supporting the lower class efforts in succeeding much like the rest of the tax free high class. Smart people work towards cutting out the unnecessary cost in order to get ahead and while the idea of this app is nice, it&#39;s not bringing any competition to it&#39;s competitors let alone effectively supporting the very market it&#39;s looking to attract.
