Constant offers to upgrade make the free version unusable 1/5
The free version constantly is bugging you to upgrade/ start the free trial, which I don’t want to do. Pop up windows prompting me to upgrade appear all the time. In order to navigate from one page to another I have to say no, again, to the trial. I can deal with some advertising but this is too much, and makes the app incredibly annoying to use. Opening the app? You’ve got a say no to the upgrade. Want to add a new habit? You’ve gotta say no to the upgrade. Want to edit a habit? You’ve got to say no to the upgrade. Come on guys.
Also- no I am not paying a subscription to use this app. I need it to do a pretty simple thing, which the free version does fine (besides the constant upgrade prompts) and I think the amount you end up paying is way more than the app is worth. I’m deleting this annoying and impossible to use app.
Need more functions 3/5
*ability to rearrange the order of your goals will be helpful when the list gets long
*ability to pause your goals when you are on the vacation in order to keep your goal streak alive
*More icons are needed
*Ability to assign urgent & priority category vs non-urgent & non-priority category
I like 5/5
Simple and to the point. Anyone can use this
Love it, wish it were free though. 4/5
I’m a busy person. Work, school, home, etc. I have a bullet journal and a planner but I don’t always have those on my person, enter Productive. I saw this as an ad on instagram and immediately went to download it. I love that i get a free trial of the premium, but i wish it was free period. I have WAY more than 5 (or however many the free version allows) things to do in a day that I need reminded of so I will decide if I will pay or not before my trial ends.
Dark conversion method 1/5
By Becky M.
Nowhere in the onboarding says how much it costs and the biggest call to action before you start using it is “try for free” without any explanation of the cost or the fact that it auto converts free to paid if you don’t cancel it.
Had to come back here and expand the in-app purchase costs to see what that would be.
I have no issues paying for apps but I’m not giving money to a developer that is using dark UX to trick people into upgrading.
Almost perfect..... 4/5
I love this app, but the one thing that annoys me is how I can’t see what tasks are schedule for future days. I don’t care that I can see which tasks I finished in previous days; I want to see the ones that I will have to do tomorrow or some other near future day.
Lacking simple features 1/5
I really wanted to love this app but you can’t choose a specific time to do your habit or task. You can not tell it to remind you at 1:00pm, for example. You can only say remind me morning, noon or night. Useless as a reminder app of it can’t do something as remind me at specific times.
Good App but watch out for subscription 4/5
They will get you with their 1 year cost if your not paying attention. Other than that, it’s a good app
Didn’t even get a chance to use it 2/5
I downloaded this on the recommendation of a friend but after I first opened it I was greeted by 2 calls to “upgrade” and even a purchase prompt for a subscription before I’d even used it. If my finger had been on the home button at the time I would have been billed for a year of service. I’ve since had 2 nag dialogs for “enhanced push notifications” and I’ve yet to add a single task. Seems like a good idea but the hard sell has put me off it.
Premium is unfair 1/5
By Kaley Puth
i loved this app so much. but it made me mad when it told me you can only make like 4-5 habits then you have to get premium 🙄 It’s seriously unfair. Sorry but i’m not paying for this app. :/
Great, except no syncing between devices 4/5
Good, with one big flaw
Sometimes I’m working on my iPad, and sometimes I have my phone on me. The complete lack of syncing between devices essentially makes the iPad app useless. I’ve tried to keep identical lists on both, but having to manually keep them synced is much more trouble than it’s with
Endless Ads for Expensive Subscription Version 2/5
Used to be a very useful app, but is now hobbled by ads for upgrades and other products. I can see no reason to pay for a subscription for such a basic function as habit tracking, especially when there are excellent alternatives on the App Store.
+1 star for immediate developer response - impressed by a dev who actually reads comments.
Well worth it 4/5
I don’t normally pay for apps but it’s definitely worth the unlimited habits especially when you have a lot going on. This is keeping on track and helping hold me accountable when I feel like I don’t have enough time to accomplish everything. I’m so glad I found this app. $19.00 for unlimited habits for one year, for my 2018 resolutions it’s a great start for my year
Great app 5/5
Awesome I love it !
Dont download this app unless you want you account charged. Its a surprise feature and its not easy to turn off.
I don’t see why this is rated so high 3/5
It’s okay, on a scale of 1-10 of features I give it a 5. I don’t like that I can’t just scroll back and forth on days and see future tasks as well as past, it only shows present and past (like I need to hide tomorrow from myself or something). I finally found the calendar screen... would it be too much to ask to be able to print my week tasks? I know, paper is so yesterday...
This is a very simplified interface, so why is it so expensive? I found better looking, more colorful and easier to navigate habit minders for a straight $4.99. I purchased this one for a month, to try it out full feature without the nagging ads and purchase reminders... I’m not impressed yet.
Great app 5/5
Great easy to use productivity app. I like the fact that this app is focused on tracking and statistics, they have not tried to add too many features to it – but kept it focused on its principal value. It’s a sleek interface with a great set of features.
Just another money grabber 1/5
Just another app that limits everything, forces you into a subscription (commitment), and doesn’t allow you to purchase the full (not sub based) version. You can only track a couple habits without having to pay.
Like the app and what it offers, but uninstalled shortly after realizing it just wants my money.
Less than a week and I’m hooked 5/5
I decided to just pay for a 6 month subscription instead of doing a week free to really to and be committed to my daily goals. I only work part time but still find the housework and daily tasks slipping away from me. Already after less than a week I have gotten more “thanks” from my boyfriend for helping deep clean more regularly. I have “tidy the house” every other day with deep cleaning specifics on the others. When you live with a neat person but are naturally more messy it can cause tension. This has helped so much! I have also been better about doing my daily yoga and I’ve read more this week then I have in the last month.
This app is amazing 5/5
I have really bad ADD and this app helps me tremendously.
This app is so organized, fun and easy to use. It has already made a huge impact on my productivity & my life!
I’ve tried SO many productivity apps: finally. 5/5
Finally an app that just works. It covers all areas, is easy to use, and makes it so easy to keep on top of things. Just get it your life will change.
Unnecessarily expensive subscription model 👎🏼 1/5
Edit: I received a Developers Response that was generic and did not address any of my points. Developer: please explain the value proposition of a subscription, and why in the world would I spend $500 over the next 10 years for an app that is not substantially different for a user than the Streaks app, which is free? How is this anything else but greed? Sure they’ll be people that wanna spend that money, and I’m calling them uninformed, foolish, or both.
I’ve spent some time looking for an app that would help motivate me to develop habits that I want and avoid those that have been a drag on my life. I wanted an app that would work both on my phone and my watch.
I took the time to write this because developers should not be rewarded for their greed. How is this app worth $14 a year, when other better alternatives are so available without a subscription?
How do people not know that an app like “Streaks“ is a one-time cost, and is better in every single conceivable way? A one-time payment get you a prettier, more practical, more polished app than this. Why pay every year?
Avoid subscriptions when you can – especially when alternatives are significantly superior.
Almost perfect 4/5
I would use this app more if the reminders would pop up and tell me what the habit is then ask to swipe if I did it from the notification. Look at the Round medicine reminder app. There’s a little watch icon that tells me if I’ve taken all of today’s pills. Go look. I’m not uninstalling because I paid for it and I’m hoping that one day it will update to be better. I’m tired of general notifications.
App seems cool 2/5
Trying it out for a week. The one year free option doesn't work. I tried it and it only gave me 7 days. The app seems cool, but 1 year trial is Misleading, only 7 days.
Good app for tracking habits 4/5
Would’ve gotten 5 if they weren’t always trying to upsell me to the paid version. Which is just subscription based so there’s always a bill down the line.
I’m someone who likes making lists and checking off that things have been done. This app is great for that. It also gave me prompts for stuff I might not have thought about. Love it so far
Not intuitive. And too many ads 2/5
Can’t go a minute without an ad. So many better trackers are out there
Good Features, Terrible Pricing 1/5
The features of this app are good but the pricing is terrible! The free version only lets you add 5 habits and the Premium version requires a subscription that ranges from $3 per month to $20 per year. I would have easily paid $3, $5, or even $7 for this app in full but given the pricing model I would suggest others stay away.
Edit: I do have a suggestion for improvement — change your pricing model.
I don’t know if it’s worth the subscription 3/5
It’s not bad, but doesn’t seem to stand out compared to other habit trackers. Further, the limits on the free version are almost as annoying as the way the Advertisements are baked into the app.
I just honestly feel that free apps like Habitica offer everything this app offers, but for free. This app needs unique features to justify the cost.
Don’t Do It 2/5
The app looks great, but the aggressive hidden billing,
difficultly unsubscribing with muddled overly complex rules (have to do it through iTunes), time constraints for doing so, confusing price structure, and a dishonest promotion which automatically gives you premium forcing you into said structure,
make this one of my biggest regrets ever downloading.
Shame on you
I love this app but... 1/5
Just charge me one flat fee for the app. I don’t need another monthly/yearly fee to tack on to my already growing list of bills.
Don’t get me wrong this app is great it’d be even better if I could just pay a one time fee to own instead of recurring payments. Because of this I’ll have to find another app. :(
This wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. It didn’t give me an option to for a trial and a free version... only the premium version. I believe it stated that after 7 days, my credit card would be charged $19.99. Is that a year? Because... then the App just SHUTDOWN on me. I tried going into the App and iTunes to cancel... however because I haven’t been charged there’s nothing there. Is this a SCAM for you to get your $$. Then we can cancel for the following year, but we’re out the $19.99. If so, that’s pretty bad for someone to do!
Up to 4 habits unless you pay 1/5
Wont waste time on such a limited app, not enough to evaluate if the premium version is worth anything.
Can’t unsubscribe 1/5
It says you can cancel in settings— not possible.
Subscription really!!!?? 1/5
The app is great but having a monthly subscription is a complete rip off. Why can’t there be a version to just purchase ad free. Someone must be getting greedy with money.
Steve Jobs rolling in his grave 1/5
Everything looks great but this app is useless to me, as setting specific times for reminders is blocked by a paywall. Look guys, I wouldn't give you a quarter for that. Let alone a monthly subscription. Truly a business model for people who don't know what money is.
So unbelievably ridiculous for an app 1/5
The app itself is great but you can’t schedule more than 5 items :/ it tells you to upgrade seriously - just put in some ads and work on the system. I’m extremely disappointed and will not download anything from this company :( don’t even want to rate this 1 star but I have to to post the comment
They want y to adopt them for $20/yr forever 1/5
It works, nice graphics. However y will be assaulted continually relentlessly mercilessly to upgrade & thats $20 a year forever for something y can do just as easily with a printed calendar or many other low one time cost apps. I’d be willing to pay $5 for their free version to just leave me alone. They declined: they want your wallet forever. It’s t new app bus model that is doomed to fail, or should be.
Weird Glitch 2/5
I just downloaded this app and added some habits, around 5. All was well. Then I went to add another one by pulling down (only option to add) and I keep getting the screen to try premium free for 7 Days or upgrade. When I X out of that I’m back to my habits - not the screen to add a habit. And I keep going in circles with no way to add a habit. Is there a limit to the amount you can add to the free version so I’m forced to upgrade? Which I’m not going to do.
Up until the issue it seemed like a simple, clear to use app. But disappointed and shopping for a replacement app 😕
Seems expensive? 4/5
By AnnaBellie 81
The interface is beautiful, and I like using it. This seems like the kind of app that would have a one-time charge and that’s it. I’d pay $20 for a one time payment. I’m not sure why they moved to a subscription based model. Also I agree with another reviewer that their canned developer responses are a bummer.
Love this App! 5/5
I’ve tried them all and this is by far the best of the bunch! Highly recommended.
I like everything about it accept you can only have 5 habits or you have to pay
I like it but I think it needs customizable icons
Hi, The calendar is not good!! Why?? 3/5
If you could see the previous months, it would be much better. Why is it not possible ????!
I just downloaded the app and it won’t let me open it 1/5
Also it won’t let me delete it to redownload it
WAY TOO COMPLICATED 1/5
Not a simple to do list app. Just bizarre interface and too complex.
Should add an hourly option to the repetition portion. Currently you offer daily, weekly, monthly.
Well done! 5/5
Very well designed
Game changer 5/5
This app is an absolute game changer in master daily rituals
