Seriously, great work. 5/5
I hate writing reviews but really felt encouraged to write this app one because of all it's done. I vow to myself that I will build better habits ALL the time, but this app has seriously help me instill it into my daily routine. Not only is it structured well and has a great aesthetic but it also provides such encouraging little "dings" and small detailed characteristics that set it apart from other apps to help you WANT to grow in your lifestyle. Definitely 5 stars!!
Nice Design, useful app 5/5
This is the tool that I'm always looking for. It's a good design and very functional
Top Notch Quality 5/5
By jackhammer stake
Simple yet effective
No push-ups icon or activity 4/5
I won't give 5 stars if it had an icon and activity for push-ups. I like that I can add custom activities but none of the icons are really a good fit for push-ups.
Amazing App 5/5
Helps me keep all my things in order and my priorities straight. it's a great app!!
Highly Effective 5/5
If you're looking for an easy way to keep track of your day, or you want to pick up new habits but keep forgetting, this is a great way to start. Very easy to use. Amazing app!
That little push I need each day 4/5
By Reviewing on toilet
The best thing about this app is you feel guilty for not hitting targets every day. It has pushed me to do that little bit extra every day.
Who ever created this app, your a genius.
Simple and efficient 4/5
By Alex boulos
Great app. Use it for my repeating habits. 4 stars but would have been 5 if it had the widget capability to check your habits from the notification center.
Really great app 5/5
This app is perfect and exactly what I've been looking for, but unable to find. Great features, easy to use, nice to look at.
Bring back the Balance App 1/5
Only been using for 1 day ... 5/5
But it's been great so far!
Takes a little time to figure out 3/5
This took me a day or so to get used to the interface. I'm not sure why but it's not that intuitive for me. One feature I'd appreciate is an easy way to add a reminder on the hour- this app seems to let you add up to five hourly reminders, and then that is used up. Hmm. I expected more. But the app is helping me to develop some habits, like remembering to take time to stretch each evening. So, so far so good.
By Shanks lambasts
Didn't want to pay so I just switched to spreadsheets. They're just as good. There's nothing really wrong with it it's just not worth money
Great app, some things could be tweaked. 4/5
As far as timing reminders to show up, and possibly selecting a date for certain habits instead of giving a range, this app is marvelous. Thanks to whomever thought of this. 👍🏾
Great UI but leaves me wanting 3/5
I love the UI of this app, it's simple. However, a habit app needs to have better notification customization
Beautiful and useful but missing a few things 3/5
I really like this app in some ways, but it falls short in some important areas. I am not thrilled to have to pay $14 a year for an app that is missing features I think it should have but I am willing to support the developers for now hoping that the subscription model will work and the missing features are added.
First what I like:
* This is a beautiful looking app. That is important to me.
* Helpful as a habit builder with the reminders, showing streaks, etc.
* The morning, afternoon, evening layout works well
* Ability to set multiple reminders is great
* Ability to set multiple (up to 3) times a day is useful
* The boost feature to help you work on new habits
What is missing:
* Setting specific times for habits would be nice
* To set a weekly habit on a specific day, you need to actually set it as daily and then pick the day of week by deselecting all other days. That is not intuitive and I would like to be able to set something as "weekly" and pick the day.
* Monthly habits should allow you to pick a specific day of the month. I do not see a way to do this. There is no work around like there is with weekly tasks.
* The interface is beautiful but the flow relies too much on "back" and "menu". I think swiping (away from habits area) would be nicer, or a consistent menu on the bottom.
* I would also like to see a way to click on a day through a calendar. (Similar to week view at the bottom but showing more days, and letting you look at future days.)
* Syncing so I could use this app on my iPad or elsewhere and use the same data
* Web interface
The last 2 items are really important to me. Especially the syncing. This is what makes me willing to pay a subscription price for an app. Otherwise it should be a one-off price. If this does not change by the next time my subscription fee comes up, I will not be renewing.
Great Companion to a To Do List 5/5
For me, it's better to keep business/errand related tasks on a to-list and my personal reminders (meditation, practicing instruments etc.) on this app. Personal goals and habits can clutter up a to-do list and I've enjoyed having things clearly separated. Great app, simple and easy to use.
Great habit-tracking app 5/5
By Nat Dennett
I didn't know I even wanted this, but it has a great design and feel. Now I'm looking for new good habits to get into, just so I can track them on Productive!
It keeps me on Track. 5/5
That's what this app does. Left to myself, I would be a no count stoner who played video games all day. But since I don't want that, I have this thing, which reminds me that life is a marathon and that the things that are most worth doing often feel like work.
Brilliant but Greedy 1/5
By Tim Berts
I love the Balanced app. Productive seems to have a few additional features, but I will not give it a 5-star review until they sell the app for a single price ($5). Forcing users to subscribe for 12 mon/$14 seems exceptionally greedy for an app that doesn't provide an additional service.
Helps me organize my life. 5/5
Now I know what I have to do in order to be on track to greatness. Thank you!
But why we should pay money
Great app! 5/5
This is great to help keep you on track to forming good habits
Good so far 5/5
Day 3: Habits are going well. May spring for the full version.
Like it! 5/5
By Njeri B
Plain, simple, and to the point. Really appreciate the options for customization. Beyond that, it's time to get to doing.
Best Reminding App 5/5
This app is extremely helpful, I'm very bad at keeping up with exercising and other things, but this app is there to help me out. It has a tremendous variety as to what it can remind you on, and even if you can't find it, you can write your own! Absolutely great!
Just needs louder reminders 4/5
I like it a lot I just wish maybe we could use are domes for the reminders or have a louder longer one I just can't hear it when I'm busy or sleeping. I'm a pretty heavy sleeper, but alarms will wake me up but this one just isn't loud enough.
I liked balanced better 3/5
I appreciate the ability to schedule todos or habits on specific days of the week but balanced had the ability to actually set the frequency of a habit for seasonal and yearly tasks. Productive doesn't seem to do that. I thought it did once actually but it looks like it doesn't now either way.
For me, i use this mainly to keep track of household chores. I like not setting a specific day but rather a frequency. I know i need to clean bedsheets once a week... other things once a month. Other things once a season and others like spring cleaning, once a year.
So this doesn't work for me anymore and balanced is gone. Fortunately i can just download it still from the backup so I'm just going to continue using that instead.
Also i like that theres functionality for the apple watch but i find that its a lot more useful to have a complication for these kinds if apps. Just a simple complication that tells me whats at the top of the list for today. Something like that.
So yeah bring back seasonal and yearly frequencies and make a complication. :)
Good and bad 5/5
This i app is pretty cool and its nice for keeping track of priorities !!! But i gotta admit some stuff should be changed.
So I was just playing to upgrade the app and then i came on the next day and it was twice as much!
Recommendation for that issue: I would say the $12.99 should be a lifetime purchase! (Maybe more) And then the $3.99 for 12 months and $1:33 for 6 Months. You should try to be a little less on the expensive side please.
It would be nice/cool if there was this update where you could put in your name and picture of you face to show something when you join the app that said Welcome (Name)!
Last but not least some new icon here and there would be cool and also dofferent colors to choose from!
Anyways thats all for now and overall I appreciate your app and thanks for making it!
So far so good 4/5
By Alicia Bravo
Trying this app for free and it's really motivating. Feels good to swipe that it's done and I like this better than my phone to do list.
Great app with simple to understand interface 5/5
Really enjoying the app. It is designed to be understood easily. It's simplicity of design makes it very user friendly. Highly recommend to help form new habits. No need to get bogged down with overly specific timing of when reminders are chosen to be sent. Just morning afternoon and evening is sufficient. Extra choices may be unnecessary to properly form new habits.
Great App 5/5
I enjoy being reminded of the important things. It's fun seeing how many consecutive days I have accomplished certain tasks. Highly recommend.
Liking this app 5/5
I have the free version of this app, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Tracking random habits you want to maintain, with just enough stats to make you feel like you are accomplishing something long term. I will probably buy a subscription at some point.
Horrible Customer Service 1/5
Buyer beware; Premium is a monthly subscription that is very difficult to cancel. My experience with the Apalon Support Team has been nothing short of nightmarish. I've contacted them numerous times on multiple days to resolve this issue and the only response I get is "contact Apple support." Yet, they continue to happily withdraw money from my account. They do not care about you, only your money. Would NOT recommend...
HORRIBLE Update 1/5
Yet another silent update to the subscription payment. I was finally coming to terms from missing out on the one time lifetime access, to the low yearly cost. Today, I was notified that the price increased to nearly double the amount! I emailed customer support about all these constant price changes. Only to receive a semi-generic reply of "We do sales on various reasons. There might be another sale. Sorry. Thanks for using the app" -- all these silent backend changes to nickel & dime the customers. This developer seems to have gone over their head for what seems to be a simple todo list with a glorified calendar. Things that plenty of other apps do here for free or much lower cost. The app looks nice, but the price is far from worth it. I've officially given up on this app, pass.
Silent update to switch to a subscription based payment, not one mention even on the notes.
I'm out. Greedy developers get no love.
So far it's great 4/5
I've only had this a couple of days and really like it. Would really love to be able to set times for reminders. I also would like a way to set amounts like 8 glasses of water and then count down or up instead of having to put the habit in 8 times. Maybe I missed that somewhere. As I mentioned, I've only had it a couple of days, but I love the ease of use! I would recommend this to anyone wanting to create a habit or improve their home or business life.
This app is very good. Definitely worth the download to try it. There are two things that prevent it from being a five star. 1) You swipe right to make done. This now requires two hands on my phone instead of simply using my left thumb to swipe left when completed. Unfortunately the swipe left is 'skip' so I accidentally skip many tasks that I intended to make done, which takes more steps to reverse. 2) I'd like to be able to Mark a habit 'incomplete or not happening' e.g. my workout. When it's a 'fail' and not a skip, there's no way to mark it as such. Looking back I don't recall if I forgot to update or if I 'failed' at that habit that day.
Thank you thank you thank you :) 5/5
Habits are key!
Does what it's supposed to 5/5
I have issues getting things done on my own and this app helps me significantly stay in check with what needs doing. It's not too pricey at all and I feel that other apps do similar things for free but the layout and sleekness of the app was worth paying for in my opinion
By Mohammed khaled mmk
Good but need to improve
Pretty Neat 5/5
By Jonas to T.K
Just used it today, I haven't fully utilized it but so far it nice :)
Useful and Intuitive 5/5
Has met my expectations and has a nice interface
Helps me out with daily activities and keeping track of them!
Was going to upgrade but not for a subscription model 3/5
I've been using Productive for almost a year in the free version. I've since outgrown the 5 habits included and wanted to add more. Now I see that they've changed their flat fee upgrade to a subscription model. Not very impressed and will be searching for another habit tracker.
Simple to use 5/5
This is simple to use which means I am more likely to use it.
I would like a snooze option when it reminds me since most often I am in the middle of something and cannot do my habit right away. Maybe I should leave the notification open but I hate leaving open notifications on my screen.
Also, I have meds that I take 4 times a day but the app only gives me 3 timeslots. I would prefer a "wakeup", "lunch", "dinner", "bedtime" schedule for my meds but also keep the existing slots for other habits.
Finally, it would be more intuitive for me if I click on a habit with multiple times for it to take me to the screen where I can complete just one instance of that habit. There is an icon at the bottom to do this but it would be more intuitive to click the main habit itself.
Keeps me on track! 5/5
Keeps me on track with meditation, stretching, yoga, cold showers, and breath work. I recommend this app for anyone who has a need to make health of the mind and body a priority or for anyone who wants to make a sometimes activity into a daily routine.
The reason I started making my bed 5/5
This makes it super easy to get into good habits. Even after I stopped using it, I still kept up with a bunch of things because they were routine. It's an accomplished feeling to be able to check things off your list starting so early.
Love this!!! 5/5
By Wang's mom
I'm crushing my goals with this app
