Okay if it didn’t make you buy a subscription 1/5
The app is simple and makes sense - but why make us subscribe? If they let us just buy the app instead, it might be worth the money. I’ll just set alarms on the clock app instead.
Life saver 4/5
This app is effective at keeping the list of daily stuff from becoming overwhelming while also providing a concrete snapshot of the things I actually get done in a day. It's good to be reminded that a lot DOES get accomplished in a day, and in an app that's really easy and accessible. Thanks a ton!
Cost is the deterrent 2/5
Seems to be a great app the cost monthly would keep me from ever using it and I’m a long-term basis at its full potential
I like this app but I wish it wouldn’t ask me to upgrade every single time I open it
Simple Design. Worth trying 5/5
I really enjoy the simplicity of the app. I looks nice and easy to navigate. I highly recommend it.
I love this app. It’s so simple yet very encouraging.
Productive Review 3/5
I loved the program, easy to use but I purchased 1-year usage for $7.99 the next month Productive charges me another $7.99. I pulled removed my payment info and was locked out of the program. I’m waiting for their response. $7.99 was a reasonable fee, but I don’t want to be overcharged.
Im intrigued 5/5
I just downloaded the app so unfortunately I’m not a full time user yet (perhaps I should make that a new task🤔) however so far I’m intrigued.
On a personal level this sounds wonderful however on a corporate level this can be magnificent! I am excited to show this app to my boss (maybe with this we can get him into the habit of meeting his billable hrs goal)!
It would be cool if there were a way to form groups so we can share our stats and motivate each other.
Can’t Purchase Premium 3/5
The app looks good, but I’m obviously limited in the number of habits I can add. I am trying to purchase a premium subscription and it keeps telling me to try again later.
An Vital Part of my workday 5/5
This app is the easiest way for me to build momentum during my workday. I’m presented with a simple checklist of things to engage with. In the process of doing so, my inertia dissipates and, like David Allen says, I feel like a race car driver “getting engaged with the pedals.” Bravo.
Gets you focused and then gets out of the way 5/5
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!
New to the app, so far love it! 4/5
I have only been using the app for about 3 days so far it’s helping me keep on track. I love that it kinda makes me feel like it’s ok if I miss some, and that I can try again the next day :) the only reason I didn’t give it a 5 Star is because I’m new to it.
It is good! 5/5
I like this app because it lets gets rid of your by giving points
Most useful app of its kind 5/5
Simple, intuitive, powerful. Everything an Apple app should be.
One request: would you please add the ability to see tasks for future dates (instead of just past dates)?
Free version is a sham 1/5
Can’t do much and can’t even edit the little it supposedly lets you do. Doesn’t even qualify as a trial.
A fine App 3/5
It does exactly what it advertises and is very good at what it does. That said, a subscription service for what is replacing a paper and pencil system for me is laughable. I’ve combined all my things into groups of the three things I wanna focus on and it functions.
Easy and fun to use! 4/5
It's really easy to set goals and see the progress you've made in creating new habits!
Nice for College 5/5
I live by myself in college and it is hard to manage time and keep up with all my daily habits. This helps me get everything done when I need to in a nice refreshing way with cool UI too. Nice app guys
I just started using the app so I do not have much to say in the long run. However, so far it's been helpful in terms of motivating me. I'd like to see more notifications that are specified to the individual habits throughout the day. It'd be annoying but it's just the type of annoyance someone like me needs.
Love this App! 5/5
I think Productive does a great job of tracking good habits, especially in a positive way. The branding and template is very modern. I also like how the annual charge is pretty inexpensive compared to most other apps in this category.
uselful but still 4/5
I think that there should be an endless amount of to dos we can write instead of it being limited but other than that it's a great app!
Great Habit Support 5/5
I find that this app is unique in its support of building positive habits and compassionately addresses extinguishing "bad" habits. Thank you!!!! Still the best at habit development. A game changer!!!
Great app 5/5
By Youli 1555
Helped me a lot. It’s a great way to organize your day. Worth the money. I would definitely recommend it
I really like it 5/5
I like it but I thought it would be more like to do but overall if you’re looking for something to get good habits then this is what you need👍
By Feathery featherstone
If you aren’t a premium user then it’s useless
Too expensive 3/5
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 unlocked? I’ve seen personalized exercise video subscriptions that are cheaper.
Paid for this app years ago, and it was pretty good. Worth the few bucks.
Now it wants a repetitive $20, after I already paid for the fixed price years ago?
Way too expensive, and just rude.
Moving over to Streaks, which is a fixed price of $4.99 and does the exact same thing, but rated Editor's Choice.
Please fix your prices, guys.
Very focused on the past 4/5
By Hannah Marie 93
At the bottom, I wish it would allow users to scroll through days, rather than only letting users see past days. I want to see what I am doing tomorrow, because yesterday’s tasks can’t help me plan.
Excellent app 5/5
I would totally use this app if I didn’t have to spend so much money A+
Why not to pay for app 2/5
I have paid for this app and wish I didn’t. I would recommend using Reminders that come with your phone because the app does NOT allow you to customize the times when you choose to be alerted in morning, afternoon or evening. You have to click on Reminders in app to set a specific time. If you do yoga 5 days a week, you will have to set the Reminder (in app custom alert) 5 times.
I do yoga, 4 days a week at a particular time, I check my blood pressure 3 times a day 7 days a week at a particular time and I jog 4 days a week at a certain time. I had to customize the Reminders in the app 29 TIMES!!!
If you would like to be reminded at a certain time and have a lot of task, you have been warned. If your not a stickler for time, then you will like the app.
Used to be great, but not anymore 2/5
The old version of this app was great and easy to use. However, this newer version is a big let down. The constant ads are annoying and disruptive. I previously purchased the app and the new subscription service won't restore my purchase, so I paid for access that I no longer have....I'd consider paying the subscription fee again if the app itself wasn't so bogged down with useless pop-ups.
Too many upgrade Ads. 3/5
I don't appreciate this app constantly harassing me, to upgrade their app yes I get it you want everyone to upgrade and pay to better your app that makes sense. But I feel like it takes the fun out of the app as someone that is new to this application. With constant pop ups as I click through the app. As a user of the app and potential customer, I don't need to see contact reminders on upgrading I will appreciate it if they would draw back on the upgrade ads because I only need to see it 1 time to be reminded If i would like to upgrade or not. It's really annoying as a user and it makes me want to delete this app for how annoying it is. please draw back on this.Thank you.
Finally an app that actually motivates me to stick to my goals, whether they’re daily or yearly. I rarely write reviews on apps but I couldn’t not write one for this app. I wanted to give it 4 1/2 stars because my one complaint is pretty small but I either can’t figure it out or it’s not possible.
As I said, this app has helped with my motivation to get things done quite a bit. I’m usually a procrastinator but the idea of breaking a streak because I’m feeling lazy drives me crazy, which encourages me to just get it done. It’s a really great psychological trick and it’s really what sets this app apart from other reminder apps (and I’ve tried quite a few because right now I’m still writing my to-do lists and reminders on paper every day and I’m trying to get away from that and switch to my phone and other Apple devices.
As I said I do have one minor complaint, and it’s that you can’t add any notes or additional information until you’ve already completed the task. This frustrated me a couple times and left me having to keep the additional information in a separate app, which is not ideal. Pretty minor, but if it is possible and I’m just missing it could someone let me know? And if I’m correct about this... developers? :) could you maybe allow it in a future update? If Productive had that capability, it would be a 5 star rating from me.
Overall though I’d highly recommend it. I’m only still in my week long trial but I intend to keep the paid full version (totally a reasonable cost for a year which says a lot about how worth it the app is because I’m super cheap when it comes to any purchases, especially electronic ones).
So try it out, you’ve got nothing to lose. Try the upgraded paid version for at least the week’s free trial you’re offered to see if it’s worth it for you, too. And if it is, I think the cost for a year is pretty justifiable.
Nice app but subscription is ridiculous. 2/5
The user interface in Productive is laid out well and I actually prefer it to other apps like HabitBull but their subscription structure is ridiculous and I refuse to rent software rather than own it. This trend across the software industry is poisonous and in every instance that a developer has changed to a subscription only based fee structure I have sought an alternative app or, in cases like Adobe products, I’ve either downgraded to inferior versions like Photoshop Elements or have gone against my own ethical standards and pirated a piece of software because the developer took away my choice to own it. I hate piracy, and in the case of Photoshop I have learned to settle using Photoshop Elements rather than a pirated full version, but the amount of revenue Adobe and other developers have missed out on from me is substantial due to their own greed. I understand that some consumers prefer a subscription model and they should certainly have that choice but it should be a choice rather than a requirement due to the choice of ownership being taken from them. Back to Productive... I would have definitely bought it for $4 when it was that price but I just learned about it. I would gladly spend $10-$20 or even more to own it now but since it is now only available to rent I have chosen to use HabitBull as my daily habit tracking app. I guess developers of apps like Productive feel that the revenue lost from driving away customers like me is outweighed by the increase in revenue from their subscription only fees. It’s a depressing trend and one that I hope dies out in favor of both purchase and subscription choices being the standard. The sad thing is that I’d have never even considered writing this review had they given me a choice of purchasing or renting the app. I encourage every consumer to keep up the pressure on developers to offer that choice. The developers of Productive have lost me as a potential customer as long as they do not offer a purchase option but the next company has a choice. Do they want my money or not? Thanks for reading.
Promising, but some definite flaws. 3/5
I’ve been a premium user of this app for over 2 years and try to use it regularly, but it has a few flaws that don’t seem to be budging.
1. You can’t snooze a habit.
If you don’t get to a habit on it’s assigned day, you can either skip it or leave it incomplete. There’s no option to snooze for any amount of time (e.g., next day). A 3D Touch or long press on an active task to snooze until tomorrow would be great!
2. No option to hide completed habits.
If you have several habits on a given day (or in a given window, say, afternoon), there’s no way hide these. So you see your greyed out completed habits rather than those you have yet to do.
A simple toggle switch atop the interface to hide completed habits would solve this. Then if you wanted to view details or undo a completed habit, you could toggle the switch and do so, but by default, these should be hidden to avoid clogging up the interface.
3. Earlier incomplete habits vanish when the time window ends. (App badge and screen).
Say you’re running late, and some of your morning habits aren’t done by the time afternoon roles around. Those habits will vanish from the interface, and the badge icon counter for undone habits no longer includes them. There’s a small link to view them at the bottom, but if you have multiple prior periods (say it’s evening and you have a habit incomplete in both morning and afternoon), you have to view all habits, and this of course includes the completed ones (see above issue).
An option to always display incomplete habits after their time windows have passed would be much appreciated. The “do anytime today” is great, but there are tons of times users need “plan to do every morning, but even if the morning ends, I still want to do it”
4. No iPhone X support yet, but I didn’t dock points for this, it’s a new screen layout. Just would be nice (:
Great Habilt Builder 2/5
Great tracking tool but would if awesome if it was also iPad app.
For daily motivation. 4/5
If you just want to create daily habits and get on top of them. To get reminded to do this and that.
I like it, I use this instead of jotting down notes, this app makes it much more organized and sets priority to tasks you want to get done.
Upgrading Issues 1/5
By Brigette Renae
Every time I try to upgrade for unlimited habits, it says “Unable to make a purchase. Please try again later.” I’ve removed and downloaded the app several times trying to fix it and it won’t let me. The app seems awesome, but I need more than five habits.
My favorite so far but not perfect 4/5
I needed a habit app that lets me track AM and PM tasks. This fits the bill. It has great UI and pretty good UX. I like that I can also mark stuff done on my watch.
What it is missing and really makes me nervous is that there is no sync feature. What happens when I switch phones? Am I going to lose all my streaks?
I wish it had a web interface where I could use it online and feel all my data is safely backed up somewhere.
This is an awesome app!!! 5/5
This app is amazing. Thank you!
Non-premium is useless. Premium is expensive 2/5
Non-premium users are constantly asked to upgrade to premium. The marketing is die hard aggressive; John McClane would be proud!! The premium features are very expensive for what the user actually gets.
Good but glitchy. 4/5
I’ve been using this for over a week now and sometimes I skip habits for the day but it won’t reset the in a row counter for that habit the next day when I know I skipped that habit the previous day.
Overall an amazing app 5/5
The app is amazing to use and it’s really simple to use. I am curious if there is a way for it to automatically complete tasks based on health data. (For example: I have an app I use to track my water intake. I’m wondering if there is a way for it to automatically complete a task once I reach my recommended water intake for the day. ) its a small request, but if it’s too much of an issue don’t worry about it. 😊 (Just a recommendation)
Disappointing ripoff 2/5
By Taylor Swift <3<3<3
It’s a shame; I was so excited about this app until I discovered that you could only add 5 habits before having to pay an insanely overpriced subscription fee. Enjoyed it for all of 3 minutes; what a let down. Will be switching to a free or fixed-price alternative.
Measure Your Progress 5/5
The best app for tracking your habits. It's simple and easy to use. Once you have your habits scheduled, you spend little time in the app.
Love this!! 5/5
I love this app! Nice to see a sweet reminder to do the things I need to. And the add up feature is fun! Thank you guys for creating such a fun and important app!
I like it a lot but it would be better if you could set a specific time
Really enhances my day! 5/5
I had been looking for an app that would allow me to track my daily routines without having to re-create them or uncheck them every morning (like in a traditional to-do list app). Productive is exactly what I was looking for, and it’s beautiful layout and intuitive design exceed expectations. Thank you for an awesome app that truly makes a difference!
Can I set the time and date? 5/5
By Tracy Anderson
Mine is running one day behind. I love everything about this app except I cannot find where I can adjust a time/date. It is Saturday afternoon and my app is showing it to be Friday. I love in the US on Mountain Standard time.
