$4 total -> $12 -> $20 subscription? 1/5
Overall, I like this app. What I don’t like is the trend I am seeing (read the comments). We have gone from a fixed price app, to an app that cost $12-13 a year to something that costs $20 a year using a subscription. Has the value increased at the same pace? Are new features added monthly?
If you paid for a subscription (especially one costing $20/year (that’s the new price)), help us out by sharing your experience in the comments. Do you think this is worth that much?
Otherwise, if you want a fixed price app, check out Things. You can create recurring tasks/todos that behave just like “habits” and synchronize that across all your devices. Overall, I am left thinking that this app is overpriced for what you get and not worth the perpetual payments for the extra features. The free version doesn’t do enough to be viable on its own.
The canned responses in all the comments don’t address the constant price increases as they relate to newly added value. Share your thoughts to let people like me know if there is value based on your experience given the current price, $20/year recurring costs.
I noticed on this app that when you first get it you can list all the things etc. but then the next time you are on it, you can't add anything because it says that you need to upgrade. I wouldn't suggest this app only because it's basically only free using the first time.
Great habit app 5/5
I’m using the free version of Productive and I love it! If you want help starting, forming, and tracking habits, this is the app to do that.
How it works 1/5
Challenging to set schedule of activities
Waste of time 1/5
Very confusing, pretty much useless
By This app is soo stupid
Take out adds
This version doesn’t work 5/5
I love this app! Never had any problems with this app until now. Since the last update it just crashes every time I open it. Please fix this soon because I have already lost my streaks
Beautiful design, but that's about it 1/5
First off, a subscription based fee!? Why am I giving you guys money every few months when you're not providing any noticeable upgrades or offering any partner discounts?
Also, it's not a very good app to use if you want to grow in your habits. It's tracking display tells me either I completed all of my habits or I completed some (or none). How am I supposed to know if I'm making progress if I have no way of seeing my growth. A much better app is Way of Life. It's not as pretty, but it's much better at showing how I'm doing, in turn inspiring me to improve in my habits.

I love the app guys !! It helps me keep track of all my activities
Seems dumb... 5/5
By XtYnCt VoRtEx
The app seems a little silly at first but for someone with a busy life and a bad memory it makes it easy to remember the little things I need to do during the day
Great to do app! 4/5
Love this app! Easy to use and great if you are a list person that needs to check your daily tasks off!
Helped me 5/5
It helped get my life together and now I'm rich like Dan Belzerian
Terrible since taken over 1/5
I’m going back to habit list. I used to like this app. Now it’s a terrible mess since being taken over. The aesthetic appeal is all gone. There are pop up ads when you’ve paid for everything. They want you to pay monthly. And the top bar got changed for no reason and looks completely amateurish. I used to use this app daily, I’ll likely never use it again.
Great app 5/5

I like it a lot, clean interface and keeps me on track
By SACHIN GORDHAN
BEAUTIFUL. SIMPLE. ELEGANT. INTERFACE
Nice app but lacks the ability to choose start of the week day and overpriced subscription service 3/5
By JuS So NaSty
+ Nice look and feel
+ The ability to have time ranges (like morning, evening etc) along with specific times is unique compared to many other competitor apps.
- Can’t choose the start of week within the app. Example: I prefer Monday but the app default in the USA is Sunday. This is basic feature that many competitor apps have so this is really disappointing for me.
- $$$ Way over priced compared to competitor apps. It uses a subscription service rather than one time purchase fee.
Too expensive 4/5
I love the free version and just came to the App Store to buy the full version. Based on reviews, it looks like it used to be $3.99. Now it’s a $19.99 annual subscription? I’m not certain what service I’m subscribing to? A few features that are unblocked? I’ve seen personalized exercise video subscriptions that are cheaper.
By Brandon Galizia
This app needs an option to schedule multiple actual times rather than just the 3 options of morning noon and night.
Get rid of the subscription 1/5
Please bring back the one time purchase for the pro version. The subscription is kind of ridiculous. It's not like there's new content. It's a to do list app. I was going to upgrade but then it switched to a subscription. Extremely disappointed.
This app has really helped me stay consistent with so many things.
Premium is worth it 5/5
Very good app
By Works great so far:)
So far I really like this and am hoping it can help me keep my house in order!! I've only been using for two days but so far so good👍
Perfect for me 5/5
I use this app to help manage chronic depression. I needed an app that would allow me to set tiny daily habits (do one push-up, eat one vegetable, etc.). I wanted an app that was beautiful and pleasant to use. The app succeeds in both areas. Thanks.
Could use some improvement 4/5
The app functions beautifully. No lag, no glitches as far as I can tell, and seamless to navigate and interact with.
My only complaint would be to add more customization options - such as sorting habits by color, giving the option to have a habit occur "every other day" or "every three days" instead of selecting days of the week. It could also be interesting to allow users to use emojis as their habit icon, to allow more specific icons without needing to design more icons.
Additionally, a second tab for "to do's" would be SUPER helpful! As of right now, I'm using a second app for check lists, but I'd love to be able to do that within this app!
All in all, love it. Beautiful design, lay out, and serves its purpose seamlessly. Please just provide more features - especially if you're going to require a $2.99 monthly subscription for full access!
What I've Been Waiting For 5/5
Just what I've needed. I'm hoping a future update allows for individual task reminders.
As an app designer looking at the layout, simplify, and animations is stunning. It’s unique, beautiful, and super easy to use. This is what developers should be striving for.
Stop already 1/5
Was a great app but with the new release the constant bombardment of messages to upgrade is extremely annoying. Makes you want to stop using it.
lost the upgrade when I switched phones 5/5
paid for the app, switched phones and now it wants me to pay again. love the app but I wont pay for it twice and its pretty useless without the upgrade. Edit: resolved, thanks!
Works for me! 5/5
Easy and fun to use. Helps me to remember several good habits.
Nice app but lacking some important features. 3/5
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.
Hugely helpful 5/5
By Jeff Brooklyn
This is exactly what I was hoping to find. I also had a question about a feature, emailed them, and had a workable solution to my issue in minutes! That's pretty remarkable
Love this app!! 5/5
I love this app!! The interface is so easy to use and I absolutely love the design. I just started using it but I have a feeling I’m not going to be disappointed. Like all apps these days there is a premium subscription but it’s actually affordable for my tight budget! I highly recommend!
I wish there was a way to permanently buy pro features 4/5
The app is good, but I hate subscriptions. Please give us an option to pay for pro features forever.
Lots of good, but one real flaw 3/5
I love that the free version lets you get a real feel for the app before you buy. I love that you can make your own habits, add notes to them, and order them how you want, with your day being divided into morning, afternoon and evening so you can see everything clearly.
I can't believe it doesn't have a function to allow you to see the habits you have to accomplish on any future days, only past days.
Also, you'd think they'd have a way for you to have tasks repeat every other day, and also on certain days of the month. It literally only lets you add tasks that repeat "at the beginning of the month or the middle of the month or the end of the month".
There's an app called motivated moms that is similar. It allows you to look ahead at habits coming up for the future. So, you can look at tomorrow and see: OK that's the day I'm trying to go to the gym to do weightlifting and then I'm also trying to meditate that day and I wanted to use that day to clean the living room. It really helps to see all the things you plan to do on a regular schedule but not the same each day, or even each week (like, I'm trying to plan the next month's expenses on the last Sunday of each month).
Motivated moms also allows you to schedule things for every other day.
The only thing I don't like about motivated moms is that you cannot rearrange the order of the habits. That's a real dealbreaker for me.
I also prefer the way this app looks over the motivated moms app. I hope they fix the above issues in a version in the future soon.
I love this app 5/5
By john abc
Humans are creatures of habits. Science has shown you need something like this to stay motivated to keep doing good habits, and stop bad ones.
I also highly recommend "The Power of Habits" it's a life changing book on the brain science of habit formation. Use that book and this app and I guarantee you will accomplish many of your most elusive goals.
Great, simple app.
Rip off 2/5
Tried this out thinking it would be good for getting me motivated to do chores only to realize it's borderline useless unless you pay for the premium version. A tip for anyone wanting to use this app just to make to do lists: try the Do! app. It's free, and though it may not be good for the whole "tracking your habits" thing, it'll do the trick if you're not willing to waste your money on this garbage. It's what I was using before, and I guess I'll just be sticking with it
Helpful and great, but too expensive 3/5
Let me just start out by saying this: I am a minor. I don't have an income that I can rely upon, so I very rarely consider purchasing the "full" / "pro" / "premium" version. This is one of the few apps that I thought was worth my money, but then I noticed that it relies upon a subscription layout. I am too poor to pay for apps on a monthly or yearly basis. I was very excited to upgrade, but was then disappointed when I saw how expensive it would be for me. A shame, really, I ***really*** wanted to buy this.
If, however, this app was a ONE TIME CHARGE of, say, $0.99 - $2.99, I would definitely consider it to be worth my money. What a shame :(
Whoever bought the app has ruined it. 1/5
I just got an Alert prompting me to download an app that I had to dismiss before I could continue using it.
Instant deletion in my book.
One of the best apps I've used. Great UI and functionality
Love it! 5/5
Looks great, easy to use, keeps me on track!!
Nice app! 4/5
I'm still learning but overall really like the layout and structure of the app
New version ad is super annoying 2/5
I get it. The free app is just a teaser. But I find the new ad in the most recent update to be super annoying. If this is an upgrade it certainly is not in the interest of customers. No I will not buy a subscription.
Use it daily 4/5
It becomes a habit and it's good for everyone. My only complaint is not being able to rearrange items from the main view, or hide completed reminders -the list can grow quickly and finding incomplete tasks can be a hassle.
I wouldn't use this app without the added features for purchasing premium. I purchased premium for a year so I can have more activities. The app has really helped motivate me to get things done and to get them done earlier rather than later. The only thing I don't really like is it's sometimes confusing to navigate, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
All around good app 5/5
Very helpful. my first review wasn't please because I thought 14$ was too expensive. But that was before I saw that the app is very interactive and takes your data and has notifications to help you with what you have given it for data. Great app . Couldn't be a better planner
Everything I want 5/5
Enough customization to be useful but not tedious.
Just the right amount of gamification.
This app isn't completely responsible for me forming good habits, but it has contributed.
And that's well worth the cost.
Great app 5/5

Helps me meet my goals in sports by setting a schedule. Great way to balance a busy life

Love the concept and love the execution even more. Simple, intuitive design that accomplishes much alongside an aesthetic look. Keep it up!
