For an app that is supposed to help you be persistent this app is batting but. If you don’t open it for a while or check off that you have completed a habit, the app just stops sending reminders. Isn’t the whole point to keep encouraging you? It can’t do that if the notifications stop! Using a different so from now on.
I love this app, but it hasn’t opened for me since the most recent update. :( It brings up its start screen for maybe 10 seconds, then crashes. I can’t believe it’s taking so long to fix! I paid for the upgrade version (back when it was a one-time payment, thank goodness), so now ALL my habits that I’m trying to accomplish are on here, and being unable to open the app, I no longer have access to the list. One other comment. If you do get around to fixing the crash problem, I would also like to not have to see the snarky “Looks like your streak is broken” pop-up EVERY morning when I open the app to mark off habits completed the previous day. The way I use the app, some habits cannot be “complete” for, say, a Tuesday until Wednesday morning, so that message pops up more days than not, even though it’s not true and I have no desire to edit my habits list. I really hope I don’t have to go much longer being unable to see the habits I’m trying to track. Please fix!
This is one of the most worthless apps I have ever seen!! It will not keep track of things on a regular basis. What you’ve done in the past month just disappears and that is so helpful. Not. This app is a total cluster...
I do really love this app. I use it as motivation to get things done when my depression extinguishes all self-motivation. I immediately subscribed to it and would have rated 5 stars in that first month. When I first got the app a few months ago I noticed a couple of small glitches that weren’t really problematic and just restarting the app fixed them. If you slide to complete one task quickly after another, two of the first task will appear in the completed tasks instead of the two separate ones. Sometimes the app lags when I’m trying to complete a task so I have to slide it multiple times and that can result in the above happening; which is frustrating because I have to restart the app to be able to undo that second task that I haven’t done yet. Little mildly frustrating glitches like that. They have been getting progressively more common to the point that I now have to restart the app three to four times every singe time I use it. It’s almost non-functional. The reason I’m here on the App Store today looking for a replacement for this app and leaving this review is because of a new glitch that made its appearance a couple day ago. If I edit a task, even without saving the changes I’ve made, it turns on the “Set end date or total amount” function and I can’t turn it off. This makes it to where the next time you complete that task it automatically removes it from your habits. Luckily it can be salvaged and reinstated but doing so resets all of the data on that habit making it brand new. I have “solved” this by setting the end date of all of my tasks as Dec 31, 2099. That was exhausting and infuriating. It took nearly an hour to do and reset all of my habits back to new as if I’d never done a single thing in the three months I’ve had this app. Now I need to make more habits but do not want to have to do that for all of them. That glitch was the final straw, I cannot continue using this app until it is fixed. Productive, as it is currently, is practically unusable and attempting to use it just results in anger. I am incredibly disappointed that I’m having to switch to something else because I adore Productive.
I have not been able to access the app since the last update. When I contacted support I was told they were aware and were working on the issue. No word since, that was more than a week ago. So disappointed. I have used this for the last couple of years. Now all my data is lost.
The app seems great so far, and I know that it’s not a problem for the majority but I have problems with eating and I need to gain weight so it’d be deeply appreciated if that was an added feature.
Whoever is reading this, In have a message for you, GET THIS APP! Its helps me so well. I can keep track of my day, what I did, and it encourages me to try more! I was always trying to do meditation and exercise everyday, but I was too lazy to do it. Once I got this app, I did it everyday! If you are looking to get a new app that will help you with getting new, good habits, try doing something everyday, or trying to set a goal and accomplishing it, this is the app for you. I hope you love this app as much as I do
I’ve been using this app for years, and paid for premium back when it was a flat fee. I want to make it clear that the app itself has really helped me a lot with my ADHD and overall executive function, and the flat fee (not subscription) has been worth it. However the fact that the app is completely unusable (wont even open!) for like a week or more after each update is unreal. I figured out that this was the case years ago, so have consistently delayed updating for at least a few weeks after each update release on habit (ha). However, I accidentally updated a mere week after release this time....and now the app once again won’t even open for me. While forgivable for a fairly new product team, it’s crazy that this is still the case ~a week after an update years later. Why not roll back a version so we at least have something workable to use in the meantime? Also don’t release updates until they’ve been extensively verified and tested for bugs.
The only problem I’ve been having is that I can’t delete habits, no matter how many times I try and reinstalling the app. I’m running iOS 14.0.1
I’ve been using this app for ages, I have severe ADHD and executive dysfunction, as well as depression, and this app makes it easy to have small motivators and reminders throughout my dad to make sure i’m getting everything done as well as taking care of myself. The widget for the app just plain do not work which is a shame because I loved being able to just swipe over to the left and check off a habit when I was busy. I hope the developers are able to have a quick fix so I can bump my review back up to 5 stars!
