kenz1114 - The holy grail of habit trackers
I’ve used every one out there. I was a big fan of Productive, which is also a fantastic app, but Streaks makes Productive looks like Stone Age technology. The HealthKit integration is amazing. I don’t have to open this app. It knows when I’ve walked 5000 steps, cycled one mile, done my daily mediation, it can even know when you’ve brushed your teeth (if you want to get that crazy and you have a smart toothbrush). And here’s the most important part: because I have the Apple Watch and I track my sleep with it, it knows when I don’t get out of bed by 8am or when I go to bed later than 10pm. There’s no checking things off or trying to remember whether I did it or not, and I can’t fudge it by even one minute or I’ll break my streak. I am not a morning person but I have never jumped out of bed so fast and started doing jumping jacks because it was 7:58 and I didn’t want to break my streak! Who would have thought that the best app out there would be one you never have to even open?
My only request is integrating screen time in the same way HealthKit is integrated. I need some accountability around that and I know Streaks can help.
Bryan "Suggest this to Boss!" - How to Improv
Hey so, I keep getting things popping up saying “you’ve been successful, make this twice a day”. And while I see the merit in that, it doesn’t work for the things I try to do everyday. My suggestion to make this app better would be to make it so when you click and icon to complete it, say “workout”, instead it would take you to the “workout Icon list” where there would be multiple more icons on a different page that would have for instance “Abs” and “Yoga” etc.. That way you can try and complete those goals within the completion of “workout”. Even if you only do one of them, the “workout” Icon on the first page would be completed, but at least this way you can get more specific. Say I had “Read”. On the next page for “read” it could have “screenplay” “book” “newspaper”, getting more specific. Seriously, if this app could do this it would be SO much better. It still keeps the 12 but adds another layer. You could even make it a percentage completed option type of thing, depending on how much of the “reading” Icon you’ve completed.
Practigal - Rough Start
I bought this app based on a rave review so I have the ‘pro’ version. While it is easy to get started for basic habit tracking, I remembered reading that it could be used like a Pomodoro task master which is what I now want it for because the existing ones are either too involved ‘to do’ type apps or simplistic timers. It took quite a while to wade through how to create tasks with adequate specificity because it takes numerous passes through editing a task because all the options are not present when you first set up a habit; you create a default habit and then edit the heck out of it to get to a scheduled habit of specific length with notification reminders. It also has weird language like when it specifies the number of times a day you want to perform a habit; instead of phrasing it that way, it says “number of days” when what it means is number of times during your specified time period (day, week, month), yet the previous three options are phrased correctly. I am pretty tech savvy and it took quite a bit of playing around with the app to figure things out, even with the help section. I guess I like words more than icons (hieroglyphics as we used to call them). This app could definitely benefit by on app instructions.
Alisabbas - Please Keep Going
I love this app; it is very pleasant to use and personally validating. Every morning I wake up and recording those successes and failures from the previous day which I am tracking and (hoping to) build streaks of continuity. To be fair, this could easily be done on a calendar or paper for less than the cost of this app, but what makes it worth the money is the little autonomy it brings. When I wake up in the morning to engage with this app, there are *some* things which I am recording, but rather checking: I love that you do not need to guess whether you completed your goal of distance walked/ran or hours of sleep achieved because the app automatically pulls that information. The reassurance that you did so, motivates you that much more to continue. I pray the developers of this application continue to expand on the data automatically pulled in by this app; I would love to see a progress bar encircling my goal to “Decrease Screen Time” so that rather than have to check my previous days usage every morning to then mark as completed/failed, the application would automatically and accurately do that for me. Regardless the app is lovely, and well worth the fair price.
Bippidy Boppidy Boop - Good, but...
I've been looking for a good habit tracker for a while. Most of them out there are either setup as a to-do task manager or a basic timer. In fact, I used to use the Things 3 app not only for my daily tasks, but also for my habits. I was really glad when I came across this, and even went far enough as to buy the bundle (streaks and workout app). The workout app needs improvement too, but that's what this review is about.
Overall, this app seems to be working great. There's a bit of a learning curve to it, and I still don't understand why you're only allowed two pages, but overall it's pretty good. My problem with it is that sometimes when I try to delete a task (which the delete button is in a super weird place), the task pops back up numerous times in the coming days post-deletion. I delete the task, and the next day it's back and in my face. This has been happening since I've gotten the app. There's also a glitch in where when I hold down the task for completion, the icon does the little circular motion to display the button being pressed, but after the animation, it does nothing. It works usually, but sometimes it glitches out and doesn't complete the task when I tell it to.
Edlo1965 - Great App
Thanks for this app, I had been trying for long time others apps, and Streaks so far did fit my expectations.
However there is a feature that i will like to see in the future. This is my recommendation, some of the habits that I’m trying to build are not in daily basis, sometimes I’m trying to build a habit by doing it three times a week, with that said, on the days that I not going to work on that habit, I still see the habit on Apple Watch or iPhone, as a result the total habits for that specific day are 11 not 12. So it is possible to have a truly 12 habits a day?, so I wont see the habit on screen that I don't have to accomplish today an instead the ones I want to accomplish during the day. A particular case, I’m trying to do Laundry on Wed and Sat. Those days I not trying to go Hiking but because I have Hiking as a Habit to build on Sun, I still see Hiking the rest of the days even is not an active option.
I hope I was clear about the recommendation.
Finally thank you very much for effort.
brittanyannx - Best habit tracker by far
LOVE THIS APP. just needs a few UI tweaks. For one, the gear icon shouldn’t be for edit, I’d move the edit icon to the top right and keep customization of the habits there. Keep the gear icon for settings only. The star icon makes me think favorites but it’s just for progress, maybe change it to something like a graph. It might also be less confusing if you have a swipe action for switching between the two pages rather than the circle icons at the bottom being a page flipper. It also took me a while to figure out what the circles were telling me. Because I didn’t realize it was showing progress of the other page. If you have a swipe feature to easily switch between pages then those icons at the bottom won’t really be necessary. Other than that, the level of customization for the actual habit trackers is unlike anything I’ve seen and I love this! I can deal with the small UI annoyances for now because this is the best I’ve found so far that helps me achieve my habit goals. I’m excited to see what the app can do next!
IAMWAM - Suggestion
I love this app, it's organized my life so much... But one suggestion. I use this for a bunch of tasks, some are daily and some are bi daily as well as a once a week and a once a month... So yeah it's nice to keep track of everything so easily.
I use the dark theme to match my dark wallpaper and use the widgets as reminders, so that being said it gets kinda confusing when the reminders that aren't due today are the same color as the ones that actually are due just with a slight shift in Grey. It'd be nice if I had an option to change so only the tasks that are due on that day lit up and they went dark AFTER you complete them, instead of being dark and turning them bright, while still keeping the dark theme. It's very difficult to see what needs to be done vs what doesn't need to be done that day especially when the screen is on a lower brightness. I feel this would get your attention better when a task needs to be done on that particular day.
gavin12318374 - Amazing value and nice animations
I went through a lot of habit trackers over the past few days (after deciding to start trying to build some solid good habits) and landed on Streaks. The value that this app provides is amazing for only 5$! Most of the other apps that I tried ran off subscription services that cost 5$ or more per month (ridiculous) or were up to 40-80$ for lifetime unlock. I am a developer so I understand indie/small development is expensive, but no habit tracker is worth 5$ per month. The value that streaks provides for this one time fee is ridiculous, and frankly I’d be willing to pay double that to use it.
The habit tracking itself works great for my workflow, the widget is awesome, the animations are fluid and beautiful and the iconography is consistent, effective and aesthetically pleasing. All in all this app is an amazing value and a work of art. I’d highly recommend you give this app a shot. For the price of a Starbucks coffee you’ll get tons of lasting value!
Kampcachefis - It works. Very easy to manage.
I love this app, and it has helped me quit bad habits and start a lot of good ones. There are so many different options, and the UI is very friendly, which makes it worth the price. My favorite feature is the ability to edit your calendar. There have been some days in which I forgot to log or didn’t have WiFi or whatever and I lose the streak I gained. But the calendar will actually let me edit that day and mark it as complete, and it counts that previous day as another day towards your streak. I also love that you can pause tasks. This allows you to not complete that task(s) certain days, but it won’t kill your streak. This is useful if you have tasks such as “Don’t eat bad food”, and want to count days like Christmas or Thanksgiving out of that task. That way, you can eat bad food that day, and it won’t break your streak, but it also won’t add to it. I love how easy it is to get stuff done and I highly recommend this app!
KratosTomato - Finally a non-subscription option!
I totally understand continually supporting a developer, but I would honestly be much more incentivized to do so after a small purchase of an app (aka Streaks) for two reasons: 1. more budget-friendly and 2. donations make users (and developers) feel fuzzy inside. While building new habits, the last thing I want to worry about is money. I LOVE the UX/UI. It is super clean. The reminders, the number of completions per day, week, and month are all perfect for certain habits that aren't needed daily. I think the 8 cup a day habit is pretty neat in that you can hit the button 8 times in the day to hit your goal. I like the different color themes so I can design a morning and night routine on each side. I honestly have no gripes about this app and the only suggestion I have is to support Garmin smart watch data importing for, say, active minutes, sleep time, or daily steps. Orange as a default color for the app is warm and happy. Thanks so much crunchy bagel fam!
bloodymarygirl - So helpful!
I love this app, it really does make it easier to start a new habit and keep it going. I started by tracking a few things manually, like eating breakfast on weekdays and reading at least half an hour every day. Those turned out to be such great habits that they’re now fully ingrained and I don’t even need to track them anymore, so I archived them in Streaks. Now I use the integration with Health to track goals like closing my activity rings, standing more, and walking farther. I struggle with depression if I don’t take care of myself, and Streaks makes it seamless to keep an eye on these habits that I know will help my mental health even if I don’t feel like doing them sometimes. I also like how it encourages me to bump up the goals when they start getting too easy. And it’s nice to be able to pause a goal when you need to. Of all the apps on my phone I think this has had the biggest impact on me in 2020 and I am grateful to have it.
reviewer974745733 - Very motivating
I love this app. They’ve focused on quality of features rather than quantity, so while it doesn’t do a million things, it gets what it does 100% right.
What it does:
-Lets you set up a dozen or so habits you want to track (though really you should set up no more than 3-4 if you really want to stick with them)
-Choose a name, icon, and how often you want to complete each habit (daily, weekly, every Turs and Thurs, 3 times a week, etc.)
-Reminds you with notifications that you should check off completion of each habit. Checking off a habit is satisfying because it has a nice animation and a triumphant sound plays
-Lets you view your history for each habit and the total of your habits. This can be shown as a calendar, a graph or a percentage.
This app has been more than worth the money because it’s really helping me build good habits.
Some enhancements I’d like to see:
1) Ability to mark a habit as missed. If I have a habit to wake up at 7am and I’m still in bed at 8:00, I want to be able to mark the habit missed and not get notifications later in the day
2) it would be cool if there were more than one sound that plays and they were randomized. It would feel more rewarding to hear different sounds when you check off several habits in a row
3) Another cool feature would be badges, such as “21 day streak “, “Bounced back after missing a week “, etc.
Kudos to the developers!
cait1721 - Very good, would be great with tweaks
My main problem is that I stay up late, and I tend to log all my activity at the end of the day before I go to bed. So, regularly, I’m unable to log that I did complete a task because it’s after midnight. Things that should solve this problem:
1. The built in “today or yesterday” prompt, which lets you catch up if you missed a day. A good add, to be sure, but only effective with tasks that are 1x/day. I should be able to catch up on a multiple times per day task, too. And,
2. Delaying the “day starts” time in settings *should* extend the preceding day, up until the next day “starts” at the set time. Instead, at midnight you lose the ability to log the day’s streaks and then you’re stuck in limbo until the next day starts at the time you selected. That’s not very helpful IMO.
This circumstance forces me to not only remember to do the task, but to remember to log the task as soon as it’s done. I would prefer not to have to do that, thus not a perfect app.
DoctorGordo - Game Changer
I've been using this app for a good while now and it's been instrumental in my mission to attain good habits and lose ones that don't serve me.
It's simple and easy to use and I appreciate the option to modify icons and colors so you can switch up the visuals. I say this as someone who can actually bored enough looking at the same app templates too long and then I literally don't see them anymore, like any other dusty todo list (to whoever else this applies to this will make perfect sense).
I also really like having the ability to retroactively go back into the calendar and input details which was what lured me into going from another app to this one. I didn't want to lose track of my ongoing streaks and didn't have to with this app. Not a dealbreaker but made it all easier.
All in all out of the other streaks-related apps and the paper method -- I find this one to be the top dog. I've gotten other people hooked on it and recommend it regularly to other people interested in employing this (very effective in my opinion) system into their regiment.
It's allowed me to reach AND surpass yearly goals that I had much more trouble achieving before using this app as an aid. You still have to do the work, the app won't reach your goals for you. But for many I think this could be the right booster rocket to push you through.
Orcashark - Opposite color usage in widgets
The app itself is great so far, however: on widgets the habits you've completed are displayed in your theme color while completed are grayed out. On the apple watch (and in the app), habits you HAVEN'T completed are displayed in your theme color while completed are black & white (I'm using infograph modular). Even if you choose a custom color theme on your watch face, completed are black & white while not yet completed are grayed out. As someone with executive functioning struggles who got this app specifically for visual reasons using my watch & widgets, this virtually opposite use of visual cues between the phone and watch for complete/incomplete habits causes a lot of unnecessary friction as I have to stop and process what has been marked completed and what hasn't depending on if I'm looking at my watch or phone instead of giving clear easy information. This could be easily fixed by adjusting the way widgets display habit completion, at which point I could give it 5 stars.
i'mamazinglol - Great! - But could be better
I got this app mostly for its watch comparability and because it was marked as the app store’s editors choice for habit apps. I love the way the app works and how simple it is, but since it is paid, I would like to see just a little bit less simplicity. Since it’s a paid app but you still want to stay true to its simple nature, I think it would be nice if you could tuck away some in-depth statistics that could help users with their habits, should they choose to view them. For example, I use this app to mark when I take my medication. It would be nice if I could see what time of day I most often complete this task (like morning, afternoon, or evening). It would also be nice to see what time specifically a user most often completes a task. There are others you could include like what days you miss tasks most, what days you break streaks most, etc. These would all help users because they help us to know when we are or are not accomplishing our goals. Overall though, great app!
Damon McLay - Well Designed to Develop Good Habits
Streaks is well designed to help set goals for new habits and track your progress. The tasks can be customized to fit your exact goal and frequency. It only allows for six goals to be tracked so it’s not going to work for multi-task projects or a standard to-do list. Instead it’s built to help develop a few good habits at a time (e.g. walk 3 miles every Tuesday and Thursday, go to the gym three times a week, and stand up from my desk once an hour on weekdays).
It’s very motivating to be able to mark a task complete and see the ‘streak’ number increase as I start meeting that goal more consistently. And if I’m not meeting a goal there’s no build up of incomplete to-do tasks. Intuitive reminders help remind me of the goals I’ve set and I can quickly get an overview of how many times I’ve completed a task. It’s a beautiful design with smart functionality to help me get more of what I want in my life.
MJMiello - Best to-do approach for building habits
I am a psychologist and I have worked with a lot of people who want to improve their organizational skills and executive functions (particularly those with ADHD) and I have recommended a lot of to do list type programs to people who have mixed success. This program is different. It helps you focus on a small amount of recurring tasks (it’s not for reminding you to send your aunt a thank you card). It is simple and rewarding to use, particularly with Apple Watch. The ability to customize the icons is fun and makes the tasks feel more like they are part of you. The tasks can be as flexible as you need them to be. Need to do it only once a month? You can set it up that way. I also like the timers you can put on task. Want to clean for 15 minutes a day? You can set it up like that. Very nicely made. Well worth the one time fee.
GateTowr - A quick request for new widgets
Love this app, use it all the time. Elegant and clean, highly motivating.
I’ve been using the new widgets feature but I came across an instance that I think needs a quick fix. Right now I am tracking two tasks, one of them I do 3x / day, the other one I do 3x / week. On a day where I am doing both tasks, the weekly one fills up half the bar in the widget and the daily one fills up the other half in three increments. This is as expected.
However, on a day where I am only doing my 3x daily task I would expect them to fill up the entire circle in three increments since I do not have my 3x weekly task scheduled on that day. (It is scheduled for Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday). However it currently is only filling up the same amount of space as on a day where I have both tasks.
So on a Monday for example, I complete my 3x daily tasks but the progress bar on the widget only appears half full as though expecting me to complete the 3x weekly task which is not scheduled for that day. When I go into the actual app that task appears faded, yet the widget shows me that my tasks are incomplete.
Would love to see this functionality update dynamically based on how many tasks are scheduled that day, not just all tasks regardless of how many need to be completed that day.
The Sidewinder Three-Thousand - Great app, but not enough tasks
I really like Streaks a lot. The interface is simple, and they have really nailed a lot of details. But there are a few simple issues holding it back that, if they fixed, would make it a five star app:
1. Allow more than 12 total tasks. How many tasks I wanna do is my business. Having a limit of 12 feels arbitrary and insane. (Am I supposed to use a different app for tasks 13 and up? It should allow at least 24.
2. Implement the swipe gesture between screens. Right now, you have to tap on the icon at the bottom of the page, which is very old fashioned. I find myself regularly trying to swipe to the next screen of tasks and getting frustrated.
3. Would be great if there was an option to have tasks be one page that scrolls up and down, instead of only having them be discreet pages.
4. Would be nice if the task icons could be made smaller, so that there could be 3 across and maybe 4-5 down per page. (I have an iPhone XS Max, so I’d like to be able to maximize screen real estate)
Jakob Hunter - Exactly what I wanted.
A lot of apps have a form of streaks or goal setting for using the app which really can help build a habit with using it. Be it Duolingo, Meditation apps or MyFitnessPal. Streaks very elegantly makes it so you can transcend the app and apply this to any behavior in life. While I ro would like more than 12 goals. The limitation also helps a person focus on what is truly important. We only have so much time in the day. Once we develop a strong enough habit for one behavior using streaks for example: flossing eventually we won’t need to use it anymore for that habit and can change it to something else. I like this approach and while I have used Streaks for less than a week find it has already strongly focused some of my behavior and habits and keeps me focused with idle time on what I want to and should be doing.
Athora26 - Correct my records
I add this app to my iPhone recently . It was helpful in the beginning to track my habits. By everyday using I felt it needs to be improve in some points. I can’t adjust my records to any habit once I mark that I did it by mistake or even I can’t erase it . For example I add drinking water as a habit I want my self to be used of it .I put 12 notifications in different times to remind me to drink 200ml of water and by end of the day I should finish drinking 2400ml . First problem I faced it that I can’t easy record the same actions in the same time . As some times I drink 2 glasses ( 400ml) in the same time so I can’t record twice.
Second If I was keeping my finger in the icon to record my second one sometimes it accepted and sometimes it shows that I complete the whole recording which is not true . In this case I can’t delete the wrong record . I hope that the developers can update this app and fix this problem.
cheekbone ferone - Really really love this app (1 caveat)
This app is great and is really helping me to focus on certain areas of my life I want to make sure are part of my daily routine. Am applying moisturizer and spf more regularly, the house is a little cleaner, eating more veggies, and I am a little happier. In spite of my love for this app, I do greatly encourage one change to the program. I have divided each screen into a morning routine and an evening routine however I really really need an additional page where I can include a work routine (or afternoon routine). A lot of my space is taken up with items that relate to diet (eating veggies, smoothies, vitamins, fiber, etc)and would like to include more, but also need to include the pomodora option and other things that relate to work. Please, please consider adding a third page (18 items in all) to this app.
Sleepy Fella - Tricky to get into, but rewarding and customizable
I bought this app after a user had stated they had achieved surprising weight goals. The biggest set back for me is procrastinating and not keeping track of my daily tasks.
At first I was excited to set it up and test out the functionality. However, when I started using the app it was cumbersome to open each time I wanted to record a behavior. In the search/quick menu the UI buttons were small so when pressing them in vibrate mode I sometimes complete an entire multipart task instead of just the single part. There are no title separators for the icons so you had to think about the classifications and identify what groups they are yourself, this leads to searching for a while before you get through it. This aside, once you get used to the UI the app is very customizable which is enjoyable. You can select multiple color schemes, icons and even the home screen app badge can be modified. The 12 tasks keep the measuring manageable, but I find that the streak is no more than a remainder. There is a sense of urgency to keep your streak going. However, I would love it if I could assign my own personal rewards for keeping a streak. This way the streak becomes more meaningful.
Great job guys, credit where it’s due. This app could change your life if you use it right. Worth the money.
Sharon M Fling - Love this app - been using for several years now
This app has been great and I even use it in ways it’s not necessarily meant to be used, like tracking intake of food! I love it especially for tracking workouts and habits I truly want to keep and uphold. The only suggestion I have for it right now is to allow a “reset” setting per task. What I’ve been doing every year is to delete each task and to add it back on New Year’s Day to set a “clean slate” for myself for the new year. It’d be so much better if the app just allowed for this. Also - I’m always excited for new colors/backgrounds/icons to make the app more visually exciting. I love when they add new colors and icons and features. I esp appreciate that they now have monthly goals embedded - I was wanting that for awhile and am so pleased it’s here!
King_Archer - intuitive, simple, somewhat useful, but limited
Only 12 tasks can be active at 1 time. I’d like to have the option of creating more and have 12 just be the recommended default, not an enforced limit. Also it’d be nice to have previous deleted streaks saved in some habit history cache. Using the app over time you’ll eventually have to delete less important tasks to make room for any new ones you’ll want to add(hopefully those removed habits are strongly developed else they are neglectfully forgotten). It would be useful to have those tasks optionally saved along with their streak counts and specific configurations(re setting up daily intervals or timed tasks is a hassle). Being able to easily add them back when desired and allowing checkup notifications on their continued progress would do a lot in helping this habit tracker app become more effective at long term tracking of progress that’s made
sparepair - The Interface and Gestures Get In The Way
I wanted to like Streaks, but as time has gone on I find that the set up of the app gets in the way of actually tracking and keeping up with progress.
It looks amazing and has a great amount of themes. The level of customization is incredible. If you’re a power user, you’re going to be very satisfied. I was very happy with the ability to customize when to get reminders and how often and with the options for how often to try to get tasks done!!! It also has very well done Apple Watch complications and app.
Ultimately, though, I find everything takes too many taps to get to for things like history. The UI is confusing when it comes to tracking your streaks (best, new, when you’ll break if you’re not on a daily). I don’t like the only 6 on a page set up either. I’d rather a list style with all of them showing up on the page and then maybe I could swipe to the second page for stats.
It’s just really cumbersome to use and I felt myself trying to adapt to how the app wanted to be use, which had just grown annoying to the point of me not wanting to interface with it now looking for a more traditionally-styled app. I wish the team more continued success as it is a beautiful and very feature-rich app, just not designed for speed and utility unfortunately.
pr33ch3r - Almost Perfect
Streaks is great. There is only one thing missing. And I’m really sad it is, because it is so freaking obvious. I need to be able to keep doing more pomodoro increments than my goal. I want to write at least 4 pomodoros a day, but I want to keep going. Right now the timer runs out, so I have to use a different timer after that. ANNOYING. It would be so easy. Please add this. A way to do it would be to allow you to set a minimum and maximum number of pomodoros. So when 4 out of 16 are met, my goal completes, but I can keep going. Or the UI turns colors to show complete, but adds another segment, maybe with the indicator used for negative tasks so you can continue adding segments as you work.
Also, please DO NOT listen to people asking to track more things. 12 is enough. This isn’t a To Do List, and shouldn’t be. There are other apps for that.
BrentonLight - One feature is worth 5 stars by itself
First time ever writing an app review (I think 😅), but I’m so happy about this app I felt compelled to write. The ability to start my day at ANY time (as well as start my week on any day) is so important when building habits and consistency. Starting something—anything—new, especially if it requires the disciplined building of routines, is hardest at the beginning. Old-me inertia is easier to overcome if I can see my streaks building and the consecutive days add up. The pain-in-the-ass experience of so many productivity and habit forming apps happens when I meditate at 12:15am because I worked late. My “streak” goes back to one because it’s a new day—that is a deal breaker for me. Thanks for getting it right with a beautiful design👏🏻.
podcoast - Great app, except for weekly goals.
Daily and automated health-based habits work great.
Main complaint is just the confusing way weekly goals are set up. The partitioned circle design for logs/week is great, but editing the actual logs/day for a weekly task is impossible. For example, you can only select failed/success for entire week, but cannot log completed on Mon, Wed and Thursday. The stats for weekly tasks seem buggy, too. Finally, the “completed” dot does not fill If you are on track for a weekly task. For example, if you are 2 days into the week, have logged habit both days, and have a goal of 5 logs/week, the task will remain incomplete, reminding you that you are behind, even though you’re not. All weekly goals shouldn’t have to be completed on Monday.
Saber Altria - Literally the best habit app on the Appstore!
I've searched forever for a good habit app, tried free ones, and there was always something missing from one that the other would have. I debated buying Streaks but was worried I'd be disappointed. But it was totally worth it! Beautiful design, great stat tracking, and lots of customization. The way it looks and feels actually makes you want to keep your habits. Heck, you can even change the completion sounds. And my favorite part is actually the ability to change the icon! It's not related to habit tracking but it's so wonderful to customize your home screen and the app icon looks beautiful no matter where you put it. The creators deserve the incredible rating you see on the Appstore! 5/5 easily.
stoak19 - Doesn’t track for me
Got a message from streaks that I had not completed a task. I had but went in to check. Streaks said I had completed it as well. The next day streaks showed that I no longer had a streak. This has happened more than a few times. Checked the app on my phone and watch. Both said I had finished the task yet kept getting reminders and the next day it would say I had not completed the task. Sometimes both were in agreement, sometimes not. When not I would change the one that claimed I had not completed the task. Next morning, sometimes, the streak was zeroed out. Sometimes not.
The app also does not track my watch well. I complete three rings and Streaks sometimes says I have not and the next day my streak is over.
To a degree I don’t care if it keeps track of the streak. Part of my life is hard to predict and missing some tasks on certain days is necessary. That said, I like to reflect and and this glitch makes that impossible. I can’t know if it was the program or me.
I do like how the app focuses my attention and helps to form habits. Entirely worth it for just that. Not sure what else is out there but Sreaks is far better than anything I have tried. That said I will keep looking while using this app or hope this issue stops for me.
🔒 - Needs Improvement
The concept of this app is good, however it falls short in several key areas. The first issue being that the interface is really not intuitive at all. Trying to figure out how to delete or edit a task shouldn’t take ten minutes trying to figure it out. The second thing that the app should offer is a larger selection of colors for the interface. All of the colors available are either blindly bright or just plain dull ( having full control of the palette would be optimal ). Lastly, the selection of icons for tasks is fairly weak. There needs to be more available or at least some fairly obvious generic ones. The devs of this app must not go to grocery stores because there’s no icon for one I could find. I believe if this app was updated with the few suggestions mentioned it could easily become a four or five star app.
med8r1 - Best app purchase I’ve ever made!
One of the best values I’ve ever gotten out of an app, including the free ones. The widgets make all the difference, giving you a constant reminder, yet never nagging you. The interface is streamlined, minimalistic, and customizable, which makes the app pleasing to look at and interact with. This may seem small, but is crucial for an app you’re meant to interact with every day. A one-time $5 price means you never have to deal with intrusive ads or pleas to upgrade to a premium version. You can archive tasks and bring them back out later, allowing for seasonal habits (like watering the Christmas tree). This is easily the best habit/reminder app I’ve ever used, and I consider it a must-have.
iMyata - Amazing app & some suggestions
This app is wonderful and has a seamless UI that makes me want to complete my habits. I've been thoroughly enjoying it so far and using it many times every day. The today widget is also nice, but as of now it's buggy - it always shows up blank on first load. Additionally, I have a small issue with steaks resetting exactly at 00:00, because since of them (writing in my journal) I do before going to bed, and if I go to bed after 12, my steak is broken - I have to go to settings to manually fill in the day, which misses the point of the app. Lastly, the stats layer is not super intuitive and I haven't found it very informative yet. However, these are all small suggestions and overall this app if great and I'm excited for future updates.
bunny_the_puppy - Awesome!
Streaks has helped me complete so many goals! I first started using Streaks because I started to lose count of my meals and running goals, which became part of my diet. It is very handy for that, but for other things too! I had only briefly heard of Streaks before purchasing it, but later learned that you can do so much more than what it seems. I don’t want to spoil too much of the experience of his helpful app, but I will mention that you can add widgets on your home screen for Streaks. Not only that, but you can customize the color of the widgets and the design of the app icon. Streaks has helped me with diets, chores, exercise, and so many other things. It is definitely worth it’s small price!
Szei - Missing basic feature
There should be a way to set a goal for completing a task a certain number of times in a week or month not just in a day. There are some tasks where I don’t need to do a certain number of days per week, I just need to do them a certain number of times in the week.
For example, if I want to make sure I read for 10 hours a week, it doesn’t make sense that I have to set the same time goal for each day. Instead of having to set my goal to something like “2 hours a day for 5/7 days of the week”, I’d rather just set the goal to be “10 hours for 1 week” without being forced to break it down by individual days.
The “Done” habit tracking app has this feature. I prefer this one overall, but I really miss that option from Done.
Also I would like a way to set the color of each task individually instead of being tied to a theme. Right now the only way to make each task a dif color is with the rainbow theme but you don’t have any control over which task is which color.
Ideally you would also have the option to use a hexcode to specify exact colors.
But this is just visual, the actual functionality of the app is great! Just wish it would install on apple watch.
vbroto - I am a believer
Not usually writing down the views, but I want to appreciate the app: I was recommended the app by a friend, and I purchased it reluctantly -ok, well, it seems like an overpriced app for just checking a box and getting a reminder...
I take my words back. I have to say that I love the experience. I use it you can say little, only tracking two habits I'm trying to practice, but I love the simplicity, and at the same time thoughtfulness and usefulness of the simple features. Particularly this week, the ability to see the 30 day and 7 day running averages have "saved" me from going down the "ok I'm not capable, I give up..." route. Kudos to the creators of the app
meedot - Great habit-forming/breaking app!
Streaks keeps your daily habits (both good and bad) sorted and tracked. The best thing about he app is how uncluttered it is, retaining just those features necessary to achieve your goals of maintain a healthy pattern of habits and weaning yourself off others. The Apple Watch app is great too, keeping your habits visible as a constant reminder, without being annoying or naggy. The app currently allows you to track up to 12 habits. My only want is one more page, bringing the total number of trackable habits to 18. Think of it: one for work (answer emails, read reports, schedule todos, etc.), one for family (pay bills, clean out fridge, tidy up, etc.), and one for personal (drink water, exercise, measure weight, etc.). That would earn the app a full five stars.
DJ Rizzo - Just 12 habits?
The integration with Apple Health includes over 30 possible habits you can track. But the app can’t track more than 12 habits at a time. Does that make sense? Not to me. All other habit trackers I’ve tried allow for the tracking of far more, if not unlimited habits.
I’ve reached out to them about this before, pointing out how many reviews complain about this. They treat it like a pipe dream. I periodically come back to see if their devs have figured out how to track more than 12 habits (I mean really, if it’s not a technical limitation then what on earth is holding them back?). If they ever opened it up to more than 12 habits I’d probably give it 5 stars and tell you all about the amazing features it does have. But for now I can’t get past the 12 habit maximum and am rating and reviewing it accordingly.
metrodcmike - Blown Away
I rarely write reviews, but this app is awesome! It is a bargain for the price and has everything I could want to stay on target with habits I want to form. My life coach recommended it, and I read several reviews before making the purchase, and it looks like most recommendations I saw have been implemented. For example, you can go back and correct items from prior days and you can adjust the start of day time (I often tend to go to bed a little past midnight) so that things are checked on the associated day. The app is intuitive and the design and features are beyond my expectations. I only wish I had learned of this one earlier... Thanks for the great work!
Nancy1011 - The best habit track app
I have used 4 or 5 habit tracking apps including those very popular ones. Streaks is my favourite. It’s easy to use and visual friendly. It allows you to track all types of habits including those timing things (exercise or practice a music instrument), none-timing things, things you want to do and avoid (e.g., no sugar). It allows you to set any frequency and easily check you progress.
I like Streaks very much. And my 8- year-old loves Streaks and he is more motivated to do things like in bed by 9:00pm, learning at least 5 new words per day, exercising for at least 20 minutes, and more. He enjoys tracking his habits and is excited to check his progress on a daily basis.
morgan.sprouse - Such A Huge Help—BIG Personal Growth.
I’ve seen the biggest and steadiest personal growth by using this app to track the daily and weekly tasks that are most important to me. I’ve been doing it long enough that I can see trends in when I’m not doing well or when I am on a month over month basis. This app is so worth it.
Suggestion: I would love the ability to mark a task as completed at a specific time in the day. For instance, I always open the app before going to bed and if I forgot to check something off during the day, I would like to be able to mark exactly when I did it that way the time graph for that task is accurate.
Create Nickname. Okay. - Great app, one complaint
So far the best habit-forming app I have found. Better than Productive or Way-of-Life or others I have tried.
Great features: able to change color of app icon (all apps should have this!!), able to set multiple reminders per task, reminders are for one specific task and mention how long my current streak is, can set specific time of day for a task to show up in the little red icon badge, generally great user interface, nice collection of icons to use for tasks, not a subscription service(!!).
One issue: if I have a reminder set for noon to remind me to take my vitamins, but I mark the task as completed at 10am, the reminder still goes off. Why is that?
Burrdawg23 - This app is genius
There is a simple genius at work here. The graphics are such that it isn't just a reminder to do things - there is a palpable since of completion when you watch the little graphic circle become complete. The psychology at work is simple and effective. It is so pleasing to see the circle complete that you are motivated to perform the actual task. Kind of funny how well it works on your motivation. The feature that keeps track over the course of weeks and months is helpful too. Interface is simple and clean. I use this everyday and the results for me are tangible. I use for exercise, diet, language lessons and alcohol intake. You could use for anything. UNRESERVEDLY RECOMMENDED
damnjazzy - Love how simple it is
I love this app- it’s basic and simple without compromising productivity, customization and organization. Plus, you can change the app icon’s color!! If you’re as organized as me, you’ll know how annoying it can be if an app’s icon sticks out on your home screen or if it throws off your color scheme.. regardless, this app is immensely helpful and intuitive. My only complaint is that you can only track up to 12 habits.. not sure why the constraint. Would love to have the ability to track an unlimited amount of habits.. also, maybe a scrolling feature instead of the page button on the home screen?
DepressedPainter - 12 Task Limit Is Too Few
I was excited to see an app that used streaks because I’m motivated by streaks for some reason. I hurriedly purchased the app without throughly reading and then felt let down because the limit of 12 tasks aren’t enough. Now I’ll need to find an additional app to fit the remainder of my tasks.
I set my tasks up pretty easily but I think the fine details about reminders eluded me so I’m not sure I set that part up correct. I agree with another review about the wording being a bit strange on setting up how many times you want to do a task. Well, me too, I had to think, does it mean once a day or once a month? Idk why my brain complicated it. Maybe a explanation hint would help on the calendars.
Tanksly - A Useful App
The app is visually appealing and has nice stats, and I like that it works with the Apple Health app, however, there are a few downsides.
As others have said, the number of allowable trackable goals is restrictive. I have to use another app to track more of my goals.
Also, the process for recording completed events doesn't always work. For example, if you have eight daily occurrences of drinking water, pressing the icon for that task until there is an audible notification may or may not advance the indicator to the next occurrence. At times I've had to press the icon nine or ten times before it advanced. And pressing and holding too long completes all occurrences. It's a minor annoyance.
Richard_rsp - Good app and better motivator than stock
Overall, this app is much better at motivating me to walk, etc. versus the stock Apple integration. The interface is simple, but wish there was a bit more control over alerts. For instance, I have a daily step goal in Streaks, but I would love to have a streak goal of 200 steps per hour, or etc. during certain hours of the day, on certain days of the week (my work hours, on work days specifically). Also, it’s nice being able to click in on my Apple Watch, but having a dedicated face that showed my goal progress would be nice. I’m sure some of this is limited by Apple, but overall, I am happy with this app and look forward to future updates!

N4TaLIeE8U - A seriously motivating app
If you’re someone who likes to keep a Snapchat streak going and who wants to better their life, this app is for you!!
Seriously, it is worth the money. I can’t afford to splash money on just anything so I didn’t buy this app right away. But I soon just thought what the hell and bought it anyway, and I’m so glad that I did. It’s really such a simple concept, you just add the tasks that you want to do, the app reminds you to do it or else you lose your streak. I’ve read some people on here just calling it a To Do list and that it’s not worth the money, but I’ve always wanted to journal but have quit just a few days after starting. But for the past 3 weeks that I’ve had this app I have journaled everyday. Just a regular To Do list app wouldn’t motivate me to journal daily, but this one does for fear of losing the streak I’ve worked hard to maintain. Other things I’ve been making sure I complete everyday include taking my vitamins, eating at least one fruit or vegetable, reading for 10 minutes, taking my dog for a walk - all of which I struggle to do regularly, let alone consecutively everyday for almost a month.
So don’t worry about the money and just get the app, you’ll thank yourself when you’ve got all these good habits and you feel like you’re getting your life on track.
MattyJ66 - Feeling accountable
Have been using the app for a week now and it seems to balance all the right elements to reward you when keeping a streak, whilst keeping you accountable for the habits you wish to keep. An important feature, which I didn’t realize until using the app, was the ability to keep a record of your habits over time and gauge when you are least likely to perform a habit (e.g. late in the week); with this information you can mentally prepare for that time in the future and have a greater chance of following through with the habit.
It’s looks great, works exactly as it should and negative habits are a wonderful feature. The only two things I would change is an optional ‘advance’ setting providing more in-depth graphical information, however, I am not even sure If I would ever use it. Also, would be nice if a habit (based on certain criteria) would ‘talk’ to you (with a speech bubble or something) and spur you on to rebuild a large habit streak, since if you break a big streak one could benefit from some encouragement. Would love to see this feature!
Indoctrine - Keeps me on track
I love this app. It fit my needs the best out of a multitude of different habit tracking apps I tried and the design is really attractive too. I love building streaks and the graphs are kind of cool. I love how customisable the completion requirements and notifications are too.
The one thing I wish I could do is add a little note against my completions. For example I have a goal to do household chores and I'd love to be able to note what I did. Also the calendar feature was moved in the latest update and it's kind of annoying to get to now, if I want to review my long term progress.
DeeAWol - Don’t waste your money.
After purchasing this in the Apple Watch ‘recommended’/featured page, I was sorely disappointed after not being able to link my phone to the Apple Watch app itself. The app fails to launch and states launch from the iPhone and the phone says the Apple Watch doesn’t have it downloaded (despite it obviously being there). Tried deleting and reinstalling on the cloud, no fix. I asked for assistance and the team who said they have no idea why it happens but said it’s a bug that fixes itself in two days.. 2 days+ pass and yet to see any improvement. They also said they are working on this in a new patch?
I’m sorry, but if you are paying $7.99 (highly priced as compared to other organisation apps) and it only allows 12 recurring actions, you would expect in the very least that it works. It is a fault not a simple bug.
It’s sad I can’t get a refund for this. I was hoping it would help with my depression, reminding me to have a shower, brush my teeth, brush my hair and do basic task. Really it’s only made me more stressed from it’s lack of functionality. My recommendation, don’t waste your money.
Varunhudson - Simple & effective
I’ve been using streak for a few years now and it has helped me break a few bad habits (smoking, sugar etc) and developed many good habit (waking up early, exercise, reading etc).
Key point is that you have to be honest to yourself. I have many time been on a good streak, missed a task and wanted to just press the button just to say that I’ve done it. It better to be honest and start on square 1 again. Once you can string together like 40-60 days together, it’s now a new habit and you can replace with a new habit you want to form.
RyanJames011 - Must Buy!
Absolutely loving this app so far, such an easy to use interface, integrated with iCloud and the health / Apple Watch trackers and really motivated me to make a list of things to do each day and do them.
I love that the integration with health / Apple Watch means I don’t need to manually tick off those tasks and the variety of tasks are excellent. It’s not all health / fitness focussed and has things as simple as flossing your teeth or reading a book for a certain amount of time.
Excellent app, definitely worth the money.
.:.!.:. - Brilliant
Hey people at streaks, this app has been everything I want it to be and more. Just with the bars representing completions, I think it would be better to show percentage completions rather than number, as otherwise the bars are relatively meaningless as even if you've had 100% completion there will still bars lower/higher than each other. This doesn't really show you which days you are less likely to make completions on. Just a thought. Keep it up!
McMacked - Amazing
Don’t usually review apps but had to for this app because it’s seriously awesome. Every app needs to be as high-quality as this one.
Follows Apple design conventions to a tee. iCloud sync, great Apple Watch app (with complications), simple, elegant... its design is just delightful as well. It’s fun to use. You get nice sounds when you fill in tasks. Pretty much every option you could want for the premise (like timed tasks, negative tasks) is included. The whole experience is great.
Oh and NO SUBSCRIPTIONS! Worth every penny.
afrances - I love this app, but I have a suggestion
This is such a great and well designed app. I wish that there was a feature to share your goals with someone — almost like a family setting. I’d love if my boyfriend and I could see each other’s goals/streaks — including when we check things off — so that we can help hold each other accountable. Is this something that’s possible?
Giant Frog Man - Looks good, limited functionality
Great design, but after just two weeks using it I ran into three basic pieces of functionality that were missing. I couldn’t add a task to repeat on a specific day every two weeks; I couldn’t pause a streak (e.g. if I was out of town and couldn’t do to the gym); and I couldn’t set tasks to fall in particular parts of the day (e.g. for a whole range of tasks I do just before going to bed). I won’t be using it any more, so I’m frustrated there wasn’t a trial version to try out before paying for the app.
shoyuweenie - Impressive
Never used a habit tracker before and I’m seriously impressed with this one. Love the once only price and the amazing design. Also bought the streaks exercise app on the back of my experience. Has auto integration with the Apple Health app. Helping me make good choices again and glad to be supporting Aussie devs. Keep up the great work! You won’t be disappointed with this app.
Justin Smith. - Cannot time Intermittent Fasting (IF)
The goals/ habits have the ability to set a timer to track how long you complete a task for. However, the timer resets at the end of the day. Therefore, if you want to time you Intermittent Fasting (IF) from you evening meal to the following day it will not work.
For example, if I wanted to fast for 16 hours starting Monday at 19:30 until Tuesday at 11:30 it will not work. I’ll wake up and see that the timer has been cleared.
This is especially disappointing as I purchased the app based on a very good rating. Clearly I should have looked into it further before committing to an app.
Spura - Not enough options to traxk
Only tracking 12 streaks is pretty restrictive in my view. Maxed out straight away, and this won't work for my workflow. Some of the design choices are a bit tricky. Took me forever to figure out why the dots at the bottom of the screen changed colour. Not very clear for an app that's gotten so many awards. You can only choose to start your day between 9pm and 6am, how does that make sense? Can't figure out how to link health app data, aka automatically mark if I've walked 10k. I keep adding to this review as I try and figure out features, and the score keeps going down.
RonaldoAce - Makes me so accountable!
I really enjoy the level of tweaking within the app and the tasks themselves, this is really helping me stay on track and especially with the regularly occurring tasks that I often would’ve forgotten about. 😃
kat-tech - Not user friendly
Bought this app to track a streak I was already on and planning to continue. First problem, there does not appear to be a way to backdate a streak you are already on. Have to start from zero. Later, I get a notification asking me to complete and start my streak, but I have no idea how despite pressing every button imaginable. Can’t find any documentation about how it works. You just have to magically know what o do. Guess I just paid for an app that I won’t be using.
Bob Watson - How is this so highly rated?
After an obnoxious intro where you are forced to perform a series of patronising actions, you are dropped into a confusing mess of an app that uses a whole set of icons that are unlabelled and unintuitive (maybe that would have been useful in the intro steps, instead of assuming that ‘tap and hold here to continue’ is something you can just leave implied). I tried to contact the developers before leaving a review, but the app though design, omission or just poor UI doesn’t make that possible.
Not worth dealing with for the gimmick.
SnorkelExtra - Good but custom times don’t work
I love this app. I really want to use it to remind myself to do tiny habits that I want to do more of. I set up custom notification times for all 12 of my streaks, sometimes up to 5 reminder notifications a day, but they seem to be a bit slippery, not coming through when I set them to, or not coming through at all. Otherwise I love this app, and would recommend it.
jeremybank - Fundamentally strong with usability issues.
I found the management of individual streaks to be really confusing and honestly frustrating. I think it’s held me back from using it much more than I have.
• Deleting a streak is unintuitive, as the streak options are contextual based on whether one has been preselected. It took time to figure that out. Not sure it’s a net positive.
• Moving streaks between groups is difficult too.
Kharr227 - Great app - suggestion
Really good app and also one of the coolest as you can change the app icon on your main page. One thing they could change though is that you should be able to decide when you want the next day to start like 3 am not 12 am.
brendanbwinter - Really effective for forming habits!
Streaks is an incredibly simple yet powerful tool when it comes to helping yourself get into good habits - or out of bad ones. I’ve used it to build up a habit of writing every day, and to stop myself from gorging on junk food. It’s the best $7.99 I’ve ever spent, by a long shot.
danielk6095 - Simplistic
I love the simplicity and how easy this app is to use and compared to other apps in this category you have a lot more options regarding completion choices of individual tasks.
My only gripe is that your limited with the ‘Gold Theme’. Users should have complete control over this, especially if you’re paying for the app.
stellasavage14 - Great app to build habits
I love the simplicity of this app, however once you complete all the tasks of the day they turn this ugly yellow colour which I cannot stand. It sounds ridiculous but it really ruined the app for me. I think if they fixed this issue it would be the perfect app!
Kaizalicious5977 - Suggestion
This app has absolutely changed my life. I LOVE it. I use it that much that I can’t add anymore streaks and I would like to add a couple more so maybe in a future update another page or two of streaks could be added. Much appreciated, thank you for this amazing app.
Riley Hefron - Only 12 tasks?
Just installed, to my amazement there are hundreds of options to choose from. Reading, music, language, exercise, sleep, diet, support for nail biting or smoking or drinking, or reinforcing good behaviour via less screen time. Not to mention you can create your own combinations to suit your needs.
But why can I only have 12?
Rai_Kwoto - Great app but aggregated data and archived tasks need work
I love this app, it makes me feel very much accountable. The interface is intuitive and gorgeous. The measurement options are numerous.
But my only gripe is tasks I archived disappeared and the data with it and there is no aggregate view of all habits you’re working on and have-successfully completed.
Houhokcfkiudefbduiddy - Simple, powerful and keeps getting better
Great app, I’ve been using it for over a year and it is literally life changing. It takes 1 minute to update daily and provides enormous motivation not to break the streak of good habits
DexterHolland - Slick design, a little challenging to use, missing monthly habits
Nice app, design is slick but I few goes a little bit too far in trying hard and crosses the hard to use line.. I’m always asking “wait, how do I edit a past entry again?”. The thing that is most needed is monthly goals... I have plenty of things I want to do once a month eg read a book - but I can’t track that.
mucoclier - Cannot add any notes to day tasks
So cannot let you enter any notes. For example if you set a task to record your weight every day, you can only mark it as completed, and it’s won’t let you actually enter the weight for record keeping.
If you missed any task , cannot add notes to record background information for that day neither
Not too good....
Fred Wesley - What’s All The Fuss?
This app doesn’t do much at all. I can’t believe it was $7! Basically it just sets reminders but it looks nice and clean. Problem is, if you’re trying to break a habit, it assumes you’ve abstained so you don’t have to check in. But it’s the act of checking in and ticking off achievements that help when you’re trying to quit. Overall, I’m using it but don’t know for how long and to me not worth the cash.
Alireza Romina - Simple
Easy to use, no complications and has a variety of great habits we can develop over time. Blessed to live in this era where we have wonderful creative developers like you that help humans live their best life with their apps. Keep up the good work ❤️
seconddani - Very glad I got this app!
I was on the fence as to whether to spend the money and get this app but I just bit the bullet and have zero regrets! Love the app. So simple. Features that are just ahead of the app game like changing the app icon colour. So glad I got it.
Pigmister24 - Love the new update!
I love using streaks and I love the new update!
Although there’s some changes I would like to see.
With ‘Negative Tasks’ there needs to be the ability where you can select the number of ‘misses’ per week - not only per day.
For example: Cheat meals are usually 1 per week; not per day.
The iPad version is good, but could still be better optimised, especially for my iPad Pro.
I also would like to be able to change the colour of individual tasks - not a needed change, but would still be appreciated.
I love using streaks!
Catowl13 - Good yet disappointing
Good idea but limited, especially for the money. It feels like a cheap free version I’ve actually paid for. Really needs more than 2 pages with more tasks to complete. Can’t see myself using this long term because of the limited nature of it.
DirgesInTheDark - Can’t recommend enough
This app is absolutely fantastic.
Simple and straightforward, yet immensely satisfying in keeping yourself motivated.
Love how smart the search is with finding appropriate logos
A quick suggestion: under the task setting of number of days per week, you lose the streak if you don’t do it everyday, even if you complete the number of tasks set out in the week. It would be nice if the streak was only lost at the end of a week in which the goal was not met.
eeeeev13 - My new favourite app
This is officially my new favourite app. It just works so well and it definitely worth the money. Love it. For the extensive integration with Shortcuts I would have given 6 stars if I could have.
vitaboy99 - Why only 12?
Helpful app, requires a bit of a learning curve but other then that beat it could possibly be. Only one thing preventing me from giving it 5 stars... why can I have only 12? I payed for this app didn’t I, shouldn’t it be unlimited?
JeanP S - Outstanding habit app
This is the best habits app I’ve found out there. Worth the $. Only downside is that it only supports 12 items to track. If the developers read this, I really wish you could increase the 12-item limit
itspokey - Lack of multi device syncing let's this app down
Great app in every way except for an almost fatal flaw that doesnt allow syncing of data between multiple devices - so you end up running multiple data sets until you eventually realise it has an obvious flaw
phfa26 - Great app
Could be better if I could have more than 12 streaks and be able to sort them in categories like weekly , daily or weekends.
But great app regardless. Very helpful for people that need an extra help to be better motivated, like myself :)
Pipster80 - Love it
I was at a stage where I felt like I didn’t have any direction and then started using this app. It’s amazing how a simple app can motivate me so much. Takes a bit to get used to but once it’s setup, it’s all good. Love it!
Gray81 - Love it
Simple way to build and track good habits.
I have set up 6 habits. 4 of them feed directly from the health data in my phone, so I never need to tap anything. Walk X Km, climb X flights, meditate X minutes, workout X minutes. All automatic. Love it.
The other 2 habits - eat a piece of fruit, and walk in the park - can be tapped on my Apple Watch, or just - get this - ticked off using Siri! “Hey Siri mark as complete Eat Fruit in Streaks” and it’s done. We are loving in the future here people!
Very cool app. I love it.
*•Beth•* - For those who are bad at discipline
So good! That little hit of dopamine every time I complete a streak really helps me to set good habits. Great app, especially for simple things you know you should be doing but just don’t do!
IanM236 - It’s so simple and that’s why it works so well
I had heard from others that this was a great app and I’m glad I listened to them because I’m benefiting from this app every day.
luxlisbon - Love this app
I use this app every day and it keeps me accountable for achieving all the small tasks I want to accomplish in a day / week. Over time the motivation to create a “streak” and not break it forms genuine good habits!
Blazedapples - I love this app
It’s simple to use and fun to track my progress!
You can customise colours and set up how you want! Notifies me when i almost missed something so I can get on it!!’
Tino Gi - Awesome app!
Great and simple app.
Does very well what is meant to do, which is to keep track of getting your key items completed in order to create new habits.
DrChugClamato - Buggy but okay when working
It’s a great simple app. It’s visually thoughtful and nice.
The notifications can be oppressive, but you can opt out.
Some days I just can’t use it though because it’s just frozen. Which is frustrating. I find it to be buggy.
maxexcloo - Amazing App
Absolutely love this app! Just wish I could add some more pages as I struggle to fit everything into 12 slots 😢 Any chance of an update?
Isabella Paris Mavlian - Review on streaks
Is such a wonderful app, would highly recommend for anyone who struggles to get tasks done, although I would appreciate it if you could do more than 12 things.
dhfiiejd - All good, until IOS 13
Have been using your program for almost a year and it has been great. I recently updated my phone to IOS 13, however, and now it just keeps bugging up, I can barely tick anything off anymore. Please fix!!

Colin Ng - Super simple, highly motivating
Streaks is really fun, informative when it needs to be, and has earned its spot on my home screen. It motivates me, reminds me, and encourages me.
00ndp - Best Habit Tracker Hands Down.
Everything it needs to be. No features locked behind paywalls or ridiculous subscriptions. Interface is simple and extremely vibrant and customizable. I was happily surprised by how many pre generated habits they had set up and the hundreds of icons to choose from when creating your own goals. Track habits in pretty much every way. Simple to use once you’ve set up all personal features. Statistics for each goal are simple but still in depth. Satisfying checking off completed goals. Never bombarded with reminders but are helpful when needed. Lastly, and probably the best feature, the lock screen/home widget is super convenient to see at glance all daily habits and check them off as completed without opening the app.
For the price of a cup of coffee this is a must for productivity in my opinion and the best habit tracker currently in the App Store. Extremely pleased with this app👍
setanic hispanic - Love it but
This app is wonderful I really enjoy the layout and it makes it fun to mark off the new habits that I put into practice. My only remark is I wish it allowed for a lot more pages to add more habits to add in every day. 2 page fulls seems reasonable but when you want to do more in a day I’d like it if there were maybe more pages of habits you can add , so you’re in control of how many you want and you’re not limited to only two pages. Aside from that this app is great and I give it 5 stars.
Youknowwho6969 - Weekly tasks are not incentivized
If my goal is to post on Instagram 3 times a week, is it possible to have my task display 1/3 progress if I’ve posted once earlier this week? It’s more conducive to productivity to see that you’re 1/3, 2/3 or 3/3 for the week instead of 0/1 or 1/1 for the day. If you have weekly goals it should display in fractions for the week not for a single day. Is this possible?
Irieniki - This is the one!
I’ve tried many, but this is far the best habit setting/breaking app !well worth the little investment. Don’t worry about the 12 streak ‘limitation’ it actually helps you find what is truly important. I highly recommend :)
Philthy-d - Minimal functionality
It is the most basic app for this function, but comes with widgets.
jessemadnote - Great app for small wins
I’m loving this app because it helps push me to do the little things, stretch and practice guitar which energizes me to do the big things!
Dhskwbzud - One of the best apps you will ever get!
Does everything you expect it to do, plus more!
Littleladyl - DISAPPOINTED— so close to amazing
I loved this app— it is so helpful for someone with the challenges I have (ADHD, and some other cognitive impairment from physical issues)— until I discovered I can’t use it to manage all my daily tasks. I understand their advice to not try to manage more than 12 tasks at a time, but with both daily and weekly goals, it is necessary. Now I have to go find a new app. It seems condescending and controlling on their part.
Selma Highek - Perfect
Exactly what I needed. Clean, quick, and satisfying way to track your corner stone habits. 12 habits (max allowable) are more than enough IMO. Worth paying 1 time for a great product.
2Rockit.com - Wow
You can tell it when your day starts ... 5 stars right there!
Jxta - Love it but I want more!
This app is simple yet life changing! I am more focused on building habits that I've had on my to do list for over a year and it really works. The widgets are especially helpful as they let me see whatever I choose (specific tasks or all tasks) at a glance. I love the icons and everything about the app. The one change I would make is to add more than 2 full pages. I wanted to have a page for different sections in my life (e.g. physical health, mindfulness, personal development). It narrows down your focus for sure but I want to be able to build on top of my habits instead of replacing them so I think it would be a good addition. All in all still an excellent app :)
maxtre333 - Pay for 12
I paid for an app; why am I restricted to twelve habits? I want to keep track of many things and I find it frustrating that such limitations are imposed on paying customers.
LeftCoastCaitlin - Effectively useless
This app should be great but is really frustrating. It does things of its own accord - like a thing possessed. It counts habits/tasks as completed by itself, whether you open the app or do anything. It randomly duplicated a habit and then said I had a streak longer than I’ve even owned the app, when I deleted the habit, it disappeared for a couple of days and then reappeared two days later. These things make the app effectively useless.
Justin_R - Amazing app. Well designed. Fit atomic habit!
Amazing app. Well designed. Fit atomic habit!
JDBBC - Need more than 12!
It’s great but I want it to be able to track more than 12 habits.
pricarvalho86 - Good but need some improvement
The features to schedule a new habbit are amazing, but I prefer to see all habbits in the same page with the option to visualize as a list sorted by hour and organize by period (morning, afternoon, evening). The 12 habbits limit should not be a app decision.
498763343 - Great
Great app, please add a third page of streaks.
Azawee - Totally worth it
One of the best apps that can change your life...
Ehab983 - Life on track
An amazing app, that helped me complete my daily tasks, and helped keep my life in track
AwenApps - Amazing life changing app
The app helped me change and track a lot of habits that made a huge impact. It’s wonderfully designed, updated and supported by the dev. I love the new aggregate health features. I really think it has one of the best integrations with Apple heath.
hvaneykeren - perfect functionality, visually just good
great app, wish it had more colour options/ daily/ twice daily automatic colour theme changes!! would be quite refreshing
star watched - Helpful way to build positive habits
I’ve found Streaks to be a fun and motivating tool to help me build better habits. With work and life completely blended these days it’s been nice to use this app as a way to create structure. Not gonna lie, hitting the button on each habit when completed is also addictive!
boo738363628 - Simple + to the point.
That’s it. It’s exactly what I needed.
Sami H - Great app
Great app to keep track of habits but I wish it had a count feature that allows you to do a certain task many times a day. For example, reading goal: 3 times a day for 10 minutes each (bonus if u can customize the intervals for each time). That feature would be useful for pomadoro too since as it stands; 1 pomodaro a day is not useful. Also would like the count feature for bad habits too, to see how many times I smoked in the day and such. I think that addition would make the app perfect but as it stands, I think it’s lacking as there is nothing enticing me to go back to the app after I’ve done my ‘goals’ for the day.
S.G.B. - Really enjoyed it until the update...
I really enjoyed this app (I’ve had it now for about a year) but the most recent update has really thrown me. Sometimes the app will haphazardly mis-log a task - for example, I want to log one completed time a day, it sometimes marks the whole day completed instead. It also has a tendency to completing tasks on its own without me clicking on them or crossing out the task for the day when I still have time to complete it. I don’t know if this is me misunderstanding aspects of the new update or a boatload of bugs but whatever it is, it makes the app feel pretty useless.
monica249249249 - Awesome so far!
Been looking for something like this for years, awesome app, simple interface, easy to log info! Thank you!!
Nazraga - Too much money
Very limited utility for the price. Should not limit you to only 6 streaks per page and 12 streaks total. Sleek design, but does not justify a price over $2.
Legendofzeldaa - Great app!
Really smooth, beautifully designed app with lots of great features.
Kudos to the devs - excellent work!
NajiGlass - Does not update on Apple Watch
Great app overall, but I archived tasks and they still appear in the Apple Watch, everything is out of sync, even though it says it’s in sync with the Apple Watch in the settings.
JakeStrom - Forgets Streaks
App looks great in principle, but sadly just doesn’t work. When I tap to add to my streak, the app often fails to record progress. Sometimes it reverts entirely back to zero for a day. Super frustrating. Using with iPhone X/Apple Watch SE.
Would update to 5 stars if issue was fixed.
JxC250 - Great app but limited tasks
I really like this app but I wish you could have more than 2 pages of 6 tasks. The widgets look really clean but that 12 task limit really does hurt :/
Kali omits - FANTASTIC
I love how this app turns forming a new habit or sustaining a current habit into what feels like an achievement in a video game.
Seamless, simple and fun.
You should try it out!
xihlus - Widget needs some work
I think the app is wonderfully uncomplicated, my feedback is in regards to the widget specifically:
Good start however lacks usable functionality. Beyond a simple preview the widget opens and directs the user to complete the task in app (seemingly redundant) This widget would really come into its own if the task could be activated via the widget interface.
I hope to see this functionality in the near future. I think it would help support remembering to use the app to begin with, which is the fundamental flaw of any app these day (lack of presence)
britishdramakid - iOS 14 is messing with certain goals
Since updating to iOS 14, certain goals get an X in the middle of the day for some reason. I have to go into the edit page and reset the goal to remain available for the day. I’ve never had this bug before — please fix it so I can go back to thinking of this as a 5-star app!
Dima416 - Best Habit Tracker
I’ve tried them all, including paid ones. This is worth the money. Don’t ever pay for a subscription to an app for this purpose!
PC Dootch - Confusing
I never know I’d it automatically completes for me or if I am checking it off
yeebruhh21 - Awesome app!
I have tried many things in the past to gain new habits but nothing has ever worked. Then this app came along and literally improved my productivity 200%!!! Great app!!
ohlaaanat - Life changing
Really, this app has changed my life!! Everyday I look forward to doing my everyday tasks with this app. When I get done with a task “ie work out, reading, brushing my teeth (the small things)” to see that number go up everyday is quite rewarding ! I’ve also kept up with water intake thanks to this app!!!
montreal1234567 - Comment
Stupid app, doesn’t achieve more than a reminder , hard to maneuver ,not sure why Apple is promoting it, waste of money and would like a refund
hvnctzn - Wow App.
If I were going to summarize this app in two words, effectively smart.
Otter pay your fare - Good, but needs to be better
This app has a lot more potential, particularly for breaking bad habits.
I do not think I could stop touching my face entirely cold turkey, but the only info I can record is that I failed to completely abstain. It would be helpful if I could count the number of times I touched my face by holding down the habit icon. Then I could track gradual improvements over time.
The most success I have had is with a daily push-up habit. But again I can’t record if I do a second set. Similarly, if I back off a bit one day and only do a set of 40 reps instead of 50, I ought to count the streak broken. However, doing a partial set could be a big win some days, and it would be nice if I could enter reps on the habit icon after pushing it.
So, please allow multiple counts of habits, and please allow a custom complication for some habits prompting a rep count or duration.
zyayz - Keeps completing the task as soon as I start
I have a drink water streak. And every time I set it up it completes the goal for me.
Dan Mackinnon - Glitching since I installed the Mac version
I’ve had two issues in the last 24 hours. The app started automatically marking all of my streaks a fail after 12am
And now I open the app and one of my streaks is GONE!
I’ve never had any issues until I installed the Mac app
Wes@Sask - Impressive, but needs more than 12 items
Well designed, well executed. Make no mistake about it, this is a great piece of software. However, severely limited by a maximum of 12 tracked items. I have more than 12 items a week I’d like to track. Now consider how many per month or year most of us have. Need more items please.
AC@Faubourgs - Great support and ongoing development!
Developer offers friendly support when issues are encountered and keeps his software up to the latest standards.
Congratulations on a job well done!
Cloelieroy - Great app! Use it for my physio exercices.
I use it to remind myself of every physio exercise that i have to do every day. It wirks well, simple, motivating, no complaints. Highly recommend to people around me.
@ the developers, here’s a few things that i would like you to add/change :
-icons: more simple positions, so that they correspond to physio exercises better. Take a person standing, then put their arms in various positions; then do the same with someone sitting, pushing against a wall; you can look some up, i think I’m probably not the only one who uses it for that!
-icons turning gold: honestly, that’s the most motivating part for me, not so much the streaks. Can you make it so that if you only have 2, 3, 4 icons on there (rest is empty), that it still turns gold when you’ve finished them? Currently it only turns gold if you have 6/6, but not 5/5, 4/4, etc.
-icons: physio exercises look alike, so it would be cool if we could color-code the individual icons for easier recognition
-make it so that when you’re interrupted doing a timed task, you can save your progress to catch up later
Ayonunum - Works for me
I set two new years resolutions for myself this year. Coding something every day and giving up drinking pop, cold turkey. I’ve attempted both of these in the past and was never able to stick with it. Turns out my addiction to drinking pop was less consuming than my addiction to watching the stupid little number tick up everyday. Both habits are at 55 days and I’m looking to add another to my daily routine. These apps have never worked for me in the past, but for some reason this time it just clicked.
Jongresdt - Motivating, Intuitive, and Beautiful App!
Streaks has been an amazing app for me. It’s simple enough that you don’t have to mess around with a thousand settings for each goal, yet it’s designed in a way that makes completing tasks a rewarding experience. It also offers a decent amount of data for each task which can help direct improvement efforts. It’s also just interesting to look at. Overall, it costs a bit more than some of the other habit tracker apps but after trying out around 9 others, I can confidently say Streaks is the best one. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to build healthy habits or break bad ones!

@G0LDENIM HE SEEMS LIKE THE WPRSON WHO WOULD DO STREAKS IM JUST SAYING
They wont cover the RB toll the 4th quarter. Just like last year, Venables is more concerned about the middle of the fields and the streaks. That will be open all game
reflecting on 1 of the happiest streaks in my life - a 4-wk. friends w benefits situation that was nothing but compliments and sex for 28 days just good vibes applauding each other goin “hey u wanna try this?” “yea let’s do that” “I love life” legendary chapter in my life
im tbz's funky little man in red with the blonde streaks girlfriend so show some respect please 🙄
In 2021 I'm blocking every childish bitch that sends me a snap saying "streaks"
@BL0NDEDDAYA @27CLIPZ Yes i have like 1000 day streaks I’m not stopping now
