Really good app but missing one important feature 3/5
I love it! However I end my day at around 4am which means that sometimes streaks get messed up when i check them after midnight... It would be good to be able to setup when your day ends...
Great app 5/5
Simple, straightforward UI, easy to use.
If not for limited number of habits would be the best. 4/5
By DJ Rizzo
I’ve tried pretty much every habit tracking app for iPhone and Streaks is by far the best for my needs… with one exception: I need more than 12 streaks to track. I imagine some say too many habits will result in a negative experience thus causing us to turn away from the habits. But as an adult diagnosed with ADD I need a lot more reminding than the average person. Technically if something is a habit, you shouldn’t need to track it. So in theory a habit tracker should only be necessary until the task actually becomes habit. However, for a person with ADD like myself these may never become true habits and I will always need a little reminder. Those extra nudges are where an app like Strides can really shine for people like me, and the reason why I need more than 12 habits to track. I’d happily pay a reasonable IAP for this feature. Thanks!
Most unintuitive UI. Confusing notifications 1/5
There is NO other app of OS that has such an intuitive UI.
Trying to delete a task... good luck.
Tap on the settings icon... not done yet,
now tap on the list icon to get to settings
There is a black second, background, with no explanation
I set up breathing task with 10x
The app created 3 notifications at random times in the afternoon.
The logic? Not explained.
I shouldn't have to read a manual to operate a mobile app. Things should make sense.
For the easily distracted 5/5
Awesome reminder to GTD
One day on it and I love it 5/5
First I love the model of payment one time and you get it all. Second you can tell it is a solid app. Very well designed and most importantly love the idea you can set like 3 times per week to do something with no specific day and then the Don’t options and its implementation. Love when you find an app that really makes a difference. And the Apple Watch implementation is incredible. Keep it up. I will recommend to all my friends that needs a push like me!
Streaks is one of the kind. Unlike most reminder app, you don’t need to go through the trouble of setting it up for specific times to be reminded on. Streaks automatically reminds you periodically. For that, I like this app a lot. Thanks!
Poor design 2/5
I don't know how this app won a design award from Apple. The concept is great, and it looks okay, but in terms of how it works -- it's a mess. The settings are so buried and obfuscated. Good luck finding the proper "..." icon to click. Changing the notification settings for a task takes so many unintuitive taps. Negative tasks are confusing for no reason. The scheduling of tasks is broken. If you want to do something once a week, the data it provides is unintelligible. Lots of potential here but a ton of flaws as well.
Such a great app, sometimes i fall off of using it, but whenever i am using it im motivated to accomplish my goals of the day. The interface is simple and satisfying.
Really helps me to be productive without taking much time to manage. Thanks!
Great for habits 5/5
Clean way to make inroads on new habits
I love this app! Well worth the money! 5/5
I can’t say just how much I love this app. It’s so clean and simple and easy to use, especially for people like me who aren’t always good at keeping up with things and sticking to routines. I would recommend this app as the best to help with keeping up with daily tasks.
Stats and backup keep this from being 5 stars 4/5
There are great stats. They just aren't accurate, which makes them not so useful.
As for backups, having to manually backup makes backups a hassle at best, and something that people don't do at worst.
Perfectly basic. 5/5
By Lord gargantuan foulspleen.
This app is great because of its simplicity. I don’t need an app to keep track of my seventeen goals, each with different measurements of success. I need an app to keep me accountable to my six daily habits. This is perfect for this. I think the app is worth about $1.99, compared to the prices of comparable apps, but I don’t regret purchasing in the slightest. Also a bonus that you can change the colour scheme and even the app icon, which I’ve never been able to do with any other app. Well done!
Life Changing App Keeps Getting better 5/5
There are gazillions of apps in the iStore but few make one a stronger/better/healthier person. This one can with use. Thanks!
Not worth $5 1/5
It’s not super-intuitive to use; definitely not worth paying for.
Needs More Tasks 5/5
I love this app and would give it 5-stars if it wasn’t missing two things.
1. The ability to create more than 12 tasks.
2. Better reporting.
The 12 tasks limit is my biggest complaint by far.
Great app 5/5
Has helped me form good habits ... some have now lasted a month! Easy to use. Nice look to it.
Please add Enter Value Task Type 4/5
By Fu11¥ L04D3D
The app is almost perfect! The only feature missing is a Task Type that allows you to enter in a specific VALUE/NUMBER each day along with a daily goal set at a specific value.
Also, another feature to consider is the option to make comments/notes on a specific task that day.
Awesome app altogether!
It’s good but navigation is really awkward 4/5
Common app mistake: making things more complicated than they need to be
Excellent reinforcement tools; versatile, customizable.
The app has a bit of a learning curve, but it is well worth it, so persevere and test the various options. The one improvement I would suggest is clearer documentation, possibly via a video online so that people can make full use of all of the very clever options.
Great habit tracker 5/5
It has a nice focused ui that gives you a quick glance into your habits where you can quickly mark one complete or see what you need to keep an eye on.
It constrains you to 12 habits which keeps the habits you want to keep actually keepable. It’s not a todo list and it knows it.
Lastly, the watch app is great as well. It’s a mini version of the iPhone app and loads up immediately. Load time is a real concern of mine because if the watch app takes longer to load then it takes me to get my phone then there wouldn’t be much need for the watch app.
No response from developer & no notes like old app 1/5
I updated my iPhone and lost the ability to open the old Streaks app (several years of data) & I emailed this developer with zero response. This Streaks app has no area for notes that I can find - it’s just a marker on the calendar. I took the tutorial, certain that I was missing key details, but there isn’t much to this app. Great app if all you’re looking for is to keep track of a habit w/no notes. Would like a refund.
Best habit forming app 5/5
I compared five different apps that help me form or break habits, and Streaks is the best one by far. The interface is amazing because you can change the colors, and you get satisfaction when you complete each task. Get it.
Hard to use 2/5
By HRH Gwen
For the price, I expected a little more. It is difficult to manage. Difficult to change your habit. Not user friendly.
Wow! Just Wow 5/5
A really great app through and through. Beautifully crafted user experience. I would have been fine paying more than I did quite honestly
Good app with an extremely unintuitive UI 3/5
I'm not sure what long press on the 'dont' tasks do. Does the x mark mean that I didn't do that task - which I wasn't supposed to anyway. Or does it mean that I failed that task of not doing it.
Multiple pages instead of continuous scroll is another problem.
Took me about 3-5 mins to understand how to edit a task.
Note that I'm neither technologically impaired nor am I new to iOS ux patterns. It's just that most of us don't want to learn new patterns for the sake of one app.
That said, this is a very useful app for forming habits. And if you're reading this review, don't let it dissuade you from purchasing it. Just be aware of the UI kinks.
Amazing! Tons of features under the hood 5/5
At first I was disappointed. It appeared to be way too simple of a app to justify the cost. After using the app, I was amazed at just how well the app functioned. I was further surprised when I discovered all of the options under the settings menu such as changing the app icon. I highly recommend.
Customization makes it 5/5
You can determine not only at what time of day each of your tasks will remind you, but ALSO what portion of the day each task will add to the app’s notifications badge.
As a compulsive remover of notification badges this is the critical detail: I’ll always see it when I’m supposed to, but won’t get desensitized to it.
You can also change the background and app icon colors to keep it fresh and continue to have positive mental connotations with your tasks.
Absolutely perfect at what it does.
Design is a mixed bag 3/5
By Kirk Strauser
I ❤️ Streaks. It’s been a great motivator to develop the habits I want. Thanks!
That said, the UI is a mixed bag. It’s pretty, but so unique that it takes me five minutes to figure out how to do common stuff. It’s not *bad*, and if I had any other apps that worked the same way it’d probably become second nature. I still feel like it’s clever for the sake of being clever.
I also wish I could have more icons on a single page. I currently have one full page and a second with two icons that I regularly forget about because they’re out of sight.
I wish there was one function within that app that’s not there...iCloud support. I would love to use this on multiple devices.
BUT this app is absolutely wonderful. I’ve been using it for over a year now. It’s a wonderful app for you to be competitive with yourself. I use this app to make a game out of making and breaking habits.
Man and Woman Icon 1/5
Why is the man and woman icon the only couple that is not holding hands?! Please fix this please. I will change my rating once you do.
What happened to UE for iPhone X? 1/5
I enjoy the simplicity of your app hence why I have been using it it for ~2 years. I probably wouldn’t change most things.
On iPhone X: For the last few months, Streaks now freezes. It doesn’t let me exit the app and when it does, my entire phone slows down for about 7 seconds after that. This is every time I open it. Hoping for an update as it’s unusable for now. Also hope you get this feedback if it’s impacting many users.
Great App, One Main Issue 5/5
I am truly loving this app, I think it is the best habit tracker on the App Store for sure. I am taking one star away from this nearly perfect app for the simple fact that you can only have 12 habits at a time... now, mind you, this isn’t just for every day (I have a few habits that are weekly goals). I really wish I had the option to have add some more. Like that it is finite because it makes you focus better, and the UI looks good with six large circles. But what about just adding more pages of 6? I would like to cycle through 3 or 4 different pages and group them into 6’s.
Almost perfect 4/5
I really want to love this app. I love its interface, I love the Apple Watch interface, I love the options... The only thing I don’t like is the lack of good storage options. There’s an export option but no integration with a service like iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox to automatically save your data. So unless you restore your phone backup, which I as a habit don’t, then you have to rely on the manual export import option. This would be a five-star app if that feature was added.
Amazing App 5/5
I am so happy I came across this app. It motivates me to be great and get my daily goals completed. From flossing my teeth twice a day to drinking 2L of water a day. I am very pleased with the simplicity. It makes my days better knowing I hit all of my targets for the day!
Not Worth the Price 2/5
The idea of this app is pretty good, the execution is too. But the price of the app, 4.99, is a very high price.
The app doesn’t really give you very much motivation except for the “joy of pressing a button” and I personally regretted purchasing the app.
If you REALLY think the app is necessary for you, go ahead and buy it. Just remember that there is so much you can do with the money (like buying food for 10 starving kids in Africa).
I use it for work 5/5
My managers use this to build successful habits that help grow the business. It’s simple and effective. Could you add more pages or perhaps design a business focused version so we can run both personal and business Streaks simultaneously. Great work thanks guys
Need help! 4/5
By Rajat Patil
I have a task setup for Walk 5000 steps but it doesnt picks the data
The app says that , With the iOS Health app, Streaks can automatically track certain goals.
Walk 5,000 steps.
Is there any configuration I need to do for the same so that the Streak picks up the data?
Polished but Unintuitive 2/5
The app looks great but the UI is quirky, unintuitive, and ultimately so frustrating as to be unusable
HealthKit Bug 4/5
I love the HealthKit integration. One of my goals is drinking 64 oz of water per day. As such, my water consumption goal should be titled, “DRINK 64 OZ OF WATER”. However, the numerical portion of the title keeps changing to seemingly random numbers that match neither the goal, nor the current progress.
Please fix this bug. For what it’s worth, the ring seems to be accurate. It’s only the text that’s wonky.
Overly complicated 1/5
The design is not intuitive and I find myself clicking all over the place just to accomplish a task.
Powerful Little Tool 5/5
This app is priceless to me as it has significantly helped me stay on track with some of my goals over the last couple years such as: Take Vitamins, Exercise, Read, Meditate, and Stop Drinking Alcohol.
The ability to see my progress is an invaluable tool. This app should be pre-installed on every iOS device. A must have
WOW! Couldn't be much better 5/5
I'm blown away and the beauty, simplicity, and features of this app. I've used my of the competing apps in this category and can confidently state that this is one of the finest and most complete apps I've used. Deserving of the design award and more. So nice I'd buy it twice! A+++
Worth it. 5/5
This app has really helped me get disciplined with the things I need to do daily. If you’re into personal development or just have to get certain things done daily and need a reminder, Streaks is the app for you!!
Only 12!!? 5/5
Can increase task number?
Clean & neat 5/5
Great app, clean and easy to use; must neater than any of the free apps attempting this same purpose.
Needs day start and end configuration 4/5
Awesome app but glaring oversight, nothing feels worse than rounding out a day only to see a red 6 at 12:30 when I go to bed also missing a task completion from the previous day that I finished in that window of time.
Best habit tracking app 5/5
I use it to track a variety of habits and the integration with health app and Apple Watch is simply genius! Wish they can also mark this app as a productivity tool instead of only a health app. Would’ve saved me a lot time searching for the best habit tracking app.
Love this app 5/5
By Bad birdie
Permanent whiteboard in my pocket. Love it's simplicity. What gets measured gets done.
Life changer 5/5
It seems so simple, but it has been so powerful in getting me to be more mindful about what I want to change.
