Spamming me with payment requests 1/5

Spamming me with subscription offers before I have a chance to try the app for even a few minutes
Super Useful App 4/5
I’ve been using the Productive app for a few months now and I’m enjoying it so far. It’s nice to see you progress on habits and for me it’s an opportunity to recognize what I accomplished today. I can be a little hard on myself sometimes so it’s nice to spend some time looking at what I did do versus what I didn’t.
That being said there’s a few things I think would be a major improvement to the app.
1. A way to either organize a the order that you see your habits so that you can easily follow a thought out routine. Even better would be a way to group habit based off specific routines (ie morning/evening routines, pre-workout routine, cleaning routine, study routine etc)
2. A goal setting interface. I think habits and goals work together. Often bigger goals require completing a task on a regular bases. I imagine a goal page that shows all of a persons big goals, under the bigger goals would be smaller goals or single tasks that lead towards the larger goal and the habits that contribute. For example one of my personal goals is to push 300lbs on the leg press. On a goal page I would be reminded of that specific goal everyday and then I could click it and see all the milestones (like hit 240lbs, then 250lbs etc) that lead up to that goal as well as a single tasks related to the goal (for example: research proper nutrition for improved strength training) and all the habits I’m doing to achieve that goal (like workout, stretch, drink water etc).
3. More icons for habits also would be cool.
Overall genuinely enjoy the app and would like to keep using it. Just had some ideas on how to improve the user experience. Everything it does include is amazing. Challenges, articles, widgets, and the habit stats are invaluable.
Love it 5/5
Really helped me to stay organized
The app doesn't allow me to create an account 1/5
The app doesn't allow me to sign up in my iPad. I can't even create an account
Not productive unless you pay for it 1/5
You can do much without paying for the app. It allows you to add only 3 habits per day 🙄
No Light theme for app , too dark to see for people with disabilities 1/5
For elder or people that have disabilities this app is the worst . It only has a dark theme making it so hard to see. I have requested for years to have a light theme for this app but they have always ignore my request
As mentioned before, this app is only for young people
Great app! 5/5
Amazing app. Just subscribed :) Curious though, no widget? Glad there’s an Apple Watch app though :)

We are only allowed to have three reminders… you have to pay to create more :/
Locked out of most things 2/5
You only get 3 habits to make then you have to pay
Not secured 1/5
Acct was hacked after signing up for app. No where on app to cancel membership or renewal. Beware using it.
Daily read 4/5
Please let me get rid of this “daily read”, especially if I already read it. Thanks
Widget doesn’t work 1/5
The widget doesn’t show anything except for a blurry image. How do I fix this
Waste of money 1/5
Not worth money at all
What happened to the monthly calendar!? 2/5
I’ve used this app for years now and have totally loved it. It helps me accomplish things and stay motivated. But this latest update is a killer for me. For whatever reason, you removed the easy, quick-glance monthly calendar view. It was so nice to be able to see all the days I accomplished each habit, and be able to scroll back in time month by month. Now, I need to click “detailed stats” and even then some months are missing and the dates don’t even match up with the proper days of the week. Why mess with perfection? Change for the sake of change is the worst kind of change. Please, I’m begging you, in the name of the old Gods and the new, bring back the old calendar view and functionality!
I love this app, but… 4/5
I sweep the havit as done the but it doesnt work why are you ruining this app?
Every update makes it worst
App is a bit cumbersome and fragile 1/5
Made one simple edit to a habit and lost all previous data. I couldn’t find a way to recover the 9 days of data. Should be able to rate degree of meeting habit (e.g. Red, Yellow or green; or a scale system like 1 to 5). That would add great value. Also, should be able to attach notes at any time and not just I’d completed or skipped. Most importantly, a note if habit not met. I am trying hard to embrace this app but it is falling far short if expectation.
The above was from a long time ago. As of today (5 Oct 2021) I rate the app the LOWEST POSSIBLE. Suddenly my year plus of notes attached to goals are gone. The note functionality completely changed and not functioning. And, worse yet, terrible and uncaring customer support.
Pretty and functional 5/5
Enjoy using this app. Only problem is that I can not reorder. My iPhone app does not have the reorder icon.
Progress gets deleted, can’t get in touch with anyone 1/5
I’ve been trying for months to reach someone at this app. I purchased the premium version but my progress gets deleted whenever I have to reset my phone or upgrade it. I love this app but it’s frustrating to have to start over every few months.
Bad Upgrade 2/5
I have been using this app for years, and the latest major upgrade is terrible. You used to be able to click on a habit and see how many times you completed that habit each month. Now it is super glitchy, skips over months, and doesn’t totally work. PLEASE CHANGE BACK TO THE OLD VERSION OF THE APP - IT WAS BETTER!
So Much Potential. Needs Updates 4/5
Love this app. Best one I’ve found by far. I’m a premium member. The interface is nice, it’s easy to use. However, there are a few areas that I needs improvement in. I’ve listed below as what it needs to have and what it could offer:
- Per week, month, and year options. Currently you can only do per day. What if I say I want to practice yoga “twice per week” or “meditate 90 minutes per week”. Only way to do this now is to create a habit for the yoga and tie it to two specific days and complete them on those days. I don’t care about some habits occurring on a specific day as long as I do them that week.
- Reset on habits when making changes should be optional. This one is a killer and SO ANNOYING. Currently, if you make any changes whatsoever to the habit it resets your progress. What if I’m exercising Monday and Wednesday and I want to add Friday? Yep. That will reset your streak. Even though I’m ADDING another day to my habit (the opposite of failing) you lose your streak. Really lame design.
-additional colors or slider option
- add more than one line to description
Stopped working correctly 1/5
Since last update, app shows habit completed on wrong day. After many attempts to fix it with customer service, CS stopped responding and their mailbox is full. Now another glitch, previous months are either gone or only showing the last week of the month. After over two years, app is worthless since not able to see history correctly if at all.
Update has totally messed up the App!!! 1/5
Since the new update, the dates don’t align with the days on the calendar, and the wrong day gets checked off. When trying to go back to previous months’ stats it does not show all dates, and sometimes skips an entire month. Previously it used to show total number of days completed in a month, now I have to count them individually, which is ridiculous. It was working perfectly before, and now it’s so frustrating to use, I will not be renewing my subscription if these bugs are not fixed.
Monthly stats???? 1/5
They’ve been doing so much useless updates on aesthetics. They don’t even track monthly totals anymore and once I backtrack month to month it doesn’t even show every months data in full. This app is trash right now and I hope they get it fixed before end of the year when I like to do my recap. Been using this for years and the last year or two it’s been terrible. Bring the OG simplicity and interface back. Too much useless features and aesthetics.
Easy to use 5/5
Effective and easy to use
Seriously Locked Content? 1/5
This is on my device by default by apple and you wanna charge me for it? I’d rather just keep using reminders.
Really good for ADHD 5/5
By Cori jay
I needed an app that could help me remember tasks because I’m forgetful due to having adhd. This app is good at setting reminders to complete a certain task and at the same time helping you build a healthy habit . And if you’re worried about the app financially , tell them why & they will work with you ! I’m a real person lol - sacresolace on fb 😂. The more I use the app it helps my mental health. Oh if you want spiritual info for wellness look me up on fb ! So you’ll know I’m real ! Love this app ! You should get it !
By Two West Hair Salon
It’s just another notification and badge that I ignore. This doesn’t feel geared for adhd people. It behaves exactly like every other app with generic notifications throughout the day. I can’t believe i paid $19 for this. Should’ve done more research.
Pop up premium subscription offers 1/5
I received so many pop up premium subscription offers that I was annoyed and deleted the app after only using it 5 minutes
Font size is too big :( 2/5
I was really happy to finally find an app that had all the features I needed in my life after searching for years. However, the extreme large font size with no option to customize it is a huge bummer for me and makes it hard to use the app. I know it might not seem like a big deal, but the aesthetics of my favorite daily-use apps really improve the user experience for me, and this app’s text is significantly larger than pretty much all other apps. I really hope the developers give an option to change the font size if desired because it would elevate the experience infinitely.
amazing app! 5/5
i’m a virgo who LOVES to stay organized when getting done daily tasks, and this app is perfect for that!
Used to be better before subscription greediness 2/5
I paid for the “pro” (or whatever it was called) upgrade of this app back when it first came out, and found it to be incredibly useful. Now, however, my “pro” purchase has been completely invalidated and I’m asked to pay $40/year to use it, despite the fact that I don’t find any of the “new” features that have been added to be useful: all I wanted was an app to remind me of daily tasks (separated into morning, evening and night tasks rather than demanding a specific time like a calendar app), and maybe keep a record of streaks. This app used to do just that, and it did it well. Now, it has a ton of additional features that I don’t want, and charges a subscription fee that is FAR too high for the features that I use.
The “free” version (“free” in quotes because it constantly nags you to subscribe) limits you to a hilariously low 3 habits, which is basically useless.
Amazing App! Great for ADHD. Just one feature request…. 5/5
I’ve been a paid, daily user of this app for nearly a year.
It has added so much structure and change to my life that I desperately needed. Just to be real— if anyone is struggling with mental illness, or really just needs a way to keep track of their routine, this is the app for you! This gives you the opportunity to build small habits to get your life back on track. Eventually, checking the app itself becomes a habit, and you’re continuously adding more tasks to build your routine!
Personally, some features that I love are the statistics and widget features. The widget makes a huge difference: I have ADHD, so if the widget isn’t on my main Home Screen so I can view it every time I open my phone, it’s out of sight, out of mind…. And I’ll rarely make progress checking off habits.
So as I previously mentioned, this app was a huge tool for me to pull myself out of depression ruts. Occasionally, I still slip up and go days without opening the app. This causes my mood to plummet by correlation…. Which lead me to think: Could you guys add a ‘Mood Tracker’ to the app? This would enable a user to view trends between their productivity and mood, so they get a real perspective on how the app is helping their well-being. One of your competitors (forgot name?) already has this feature, so adding this is definitely a must, in my opinion.

Love this app Just got it and im already in love
Please stop “updating” what wasn’t broken 2/5
Previously clicking on a habit and seeing the monthly view was great. Now it’s buried under a bunch of unhelpful “streaks” info. And, habit edit info really shouldn’t be the first thing I see when I click on each habit. It’s not the most used feature. Each interface update makes the app worse.
Annual Renewal 1/5
The default after the free period is to charge for the annual subscription rather than monthly.
Too expensive 1/5
I paid for this app when it was still new. Surprised to see that it charges now for a subscription. I’m not impressed with the new features and the yearly price is too high. Not worth it.
What happened to the monthly view? 2/5
I have used this app for several years for free and suddenly I can no longer see a month-to-month view! So disappointing, I have so much past data that I can’t access. Why the change?!?
stop charging people that need help 1/5
people are trying to better themselves there is no need to charge them for it.
One of my all time favorite productivity apps! 5/5
This app is great. It’s customizable, easy to use, and an invaluable tool for the list checker type.
Mostly though, this app helps manage some of the symptoms of depression and chronic pain. Days can slip away, and simple routines become huge endeavors.
This app helps me stay on track and keep going!
Easy, useful, and inspirational. Thanks!
Anytime over a period of time 3/5
I really love this app interface, and design so I purchased the yearly subscription. However there’s not enough time duration options. Example I’d like to track a habit 2 times, on a non-specified day, over a 30 day period - simply not possible.
I never review apps 5/5
This is my first and probably final app review but this app is AWESOME. Seriously.
Data unavailable without monthly fee 1/5
I’ve used this app for years. Until yesterday’s update I could click through to any habit to see how I was doing for the month. This is no longer available without a subscription, and while I would pay a flat rate to “purchase” I’m not going to pay $30 a year to see my own information. Such a disappointment.
***update*** As I said, I’ve really enjoyed this app for years, so I bit the bullet and paid for a subscription. The stats aren’t even accurate, and the calendar is wrong (for example it has today Saturday the 18th listed as Saturday the 19th…this is driving me insane). Don’t even get me started on their averages…please do not buy.
Pretty dope app 5/5
The interface is nice
Created 5 custom habits and it’s telling me I “reached the habit limit?” After 5? 1/5
Paywall after 2 habits 2/5
I get it, developers want to make money but a two habit limit? I don’t need this thing to run my life , just wanted a simple tracker and this isn’t it for me. Moving on
It actually helps! 5/5
I have actually am staying on task with this app it really has helped
I preferred the last version 1/5
I’ve been using this app for over 2 yrs now and had no complaints. This latest version I do not like. The last version gave the completion percentage since I started. That was helpful. Just having the streaks is not.
Removed monthly view? Why? 2/5
Good and useful app until they removed the ability to see your stats in a monthly view screen. Next to impossible now to look back at your history. Looking for a replacement.
Terrible updates 1/5
I’ve had this app for a long time and it was really helpful to be able to go back and see my progress month to month. That feature is completely gone unless you pay for it. Looking for a new habit tracking app now. Really sad to see.
