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.
Very useful and intuitive. I know the 12 steak limit is deliberate I would love a monthly screen or daily/weekly to get more goals in there.
This app is a great way to hold yourself accountable to your goals involving daily habits. For me, it has been flossing, working out for >15 minutes, writing a journal entry, and meditating for 10 minutes daily. Actually building these habits still requires a fair amount of self-motivation and willpower though... I'd give the app 4.5 stars if I could because the UI for the "negative tasks", especially those involving a number, e.g., "eat under 2,000 calories" is not as intuitive as the UI for the "positive tasks".
I love this app lots of stats, and flexible. I wish it tied into my Fitbit but I still love it
I personally wish your task would sync with the calendar..
I don’t even get the notification I already hooked it up twice and still doesn’t work
Nice concept but the app is bugged. Worked fine as long as I had start of the day set at midnight, but when I set it to 4am due to my late work schedule, the app started acting weird. Whenever I set a task as completed between midnight and 4am, it’s competed status only remains until I quite the app. When I reopen the app a few minutes later (still before 4am), the task is again incomplete. That makes this app rather useless for me.
Otherwise, it’d be perfect
Don't get me wrong. I like the Streaks app. Enough so that I purchased both Streaks and Streaks Workout. But… I used them for a few months when I first purchased them, gave up when their shortcomings got too annoying, and have now, 6 months later, decided to try giving Streaks another try. It's marginally better than the first time, but still has frustrating limitations. I would gladly switch to another app but have not yet found a better one. :-( First, Streaks is a "Seinfelder" app - a habit tracker/trainer that is supposed to work by inspiring you to "Don't break the chain", by making a nice big colorful mark on your calendar when you have done the wanted habit on a particular day, and a big X when you have not done so. Inspired by Jerry Seinfeld's advice on how to develop a practice. Streaks is okay as a Seinfelder app. It provides a calendar for each of the 12 habits. However, it does not provide a unified calendar, where you can see all of the habits in the same calendar box. Strange, since Streaks has nice colorful icons for each habit. Also, Streaks does not manage to export these completion indications to Google or iCloud calendars the way similar apps do. Streaks supports "negative" habits. For example, one of my negative habits is "Eating Bad Food" and "Breaking My Diet". A negative habit starts off brightly colored and complete, and turns into an X if you admit to breaking the chain. So far, so good. But, there are really 3 states here: (0) have not yet messed up, (1) messed up, X, and (3) got to end of day without messing up. In the calendar view, these three states are a hollow circle, an X, and a filled circle, respectively. But in the main app view state (0) have not yet messed up is confusingly indicated by the same full color icon that indicates successful completion for a positive task. Streaks allows you to say that you want to do N repeats of a task per day. E.g. I may want to stretch my injured shoulder twice a day, morning and night. And get bonus points if I also stretch at lunch. But Streaks does not understand "bonus points" - it stops counting after your minimum goal is reached. Streaks does not understand that while you may want to "Keep the chain going" any day you complete more than one such task, but that you may also want to TRACK how many times you performed the task. Finally: the big issue: Streaks only supports 12 tasks. 2 groups of 6. In separate iPhone screens that you must hit a non-intuitive button to switch between. I actually prefer the Apple Watch app for streaks, which allows me to swipe and scroll. Note how I called Streaks a habit tracker/trainer? Streaks is probably right in that you can really only TRAIN a small number of habits at a time. One or two. But you can TRACK more things easily. Note that I said "track THINGS", not "track HABITS". Indeed, TRAINing a single habit may involve TRACKing several things. E.g. my sore shoulder: I want to TRAIN the stretching habit to eliminate shoulder pain. So I would like to TRACK shoulder pain, to see if it is less on days that I have stretched. Ditto, RMS "computeritis". I.e. I want to TRACK 2 symptoms, to see if they are improved by TRAINing the habit. And, for that matter, the see if the time of day I do my stretches correlates to the amount of pain. If you say that Streaks is only about training and not tracking - well, it is that much less useful because of that limitation. Hence my seeking a better app. Small Stuff It is good that Streaks has an Apple Watch app. One of the main reasons I tried Streaks again. Streaks supposedly does voice commands using Siri voice Shortcuts, on iPhone and Watch. This worked for about 2 hours, then broke with "Sorry, there was a problem with the app". Can't blame Streaks fir this, many folks report this problem with Siri voice Shortcuts. Streaks' iPhone app interface is pretty, but strange, non-intuitive, and inconsistent. E.g. it doesn't swipe between screens. E.g. X is used for accept changes and return in some places, whereas Done is used in other places. Streaks supports "Do task once every N days", etc. But it does not support "Do task at least M times every N days". I may want to do something at least once or twice a day, but I may want to count how many times I have done it. I.e. count for “don’t break the chain” and count for tracking should be separate. More and more I am making all Streaks items at least count 2 per day. States are 0 - haven’t done anything, 1 did some, and 2 did enough, met or exceeded my goal
Really easy to use and nice ui. However, icons will only turn gold when all 6 tasks are finished. This means that i have to set all 6 tasks to make it happen, even if i only need to set 3 or 4 tasks myself. I hope this problem can be fixed.
Once you change a streak to a “once in every 2 days” task, you’re unable to change it back to a task to be completed every day again.
Such a clean and beautiful user interface. Works smoothly and really does motivate you to maintain good habits. Fantastic app overall.
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!
It’s very complex to understand and use. Waste of money buying this app.
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.
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?
This is so basic. Nothing like what was reviewed. No overall dashboard. Messages and notifications you can’t find. It really is a total waste of $7.99 but I guess cost less than 2 coffees
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.
Actually got me into taking some good habit
If you really want to stick with a habit or quit one , this app really helps you keep track and in my opinion keep you motivated to keep your streak 😉 Suggestion : I have a lot of things I want to keep track of And it would be great if you could create pages Where each page can have up to 6 habits but be able to have more than 2 pages an also be able to label them like work , health , study , ... Thanks
The app itself is awesome!!! I love the format and all the options it gives you. I just wish I was able to track more than 12 habits....eh that’s the only negative thing I have to say about it. But other than that very efficient app!
1. Not very intuitive to use. 2. No cloud sync across devices. Would be easier to update. 3. Can’t go back and update if you miss a day (see #1) 3. Questioning how it won an award from Apple and came recommended by Stuff Magazine. Perhaps the graphics?
I must say this app is very good at helping you to create good habits! I’ve been using it for several months, and its ability to also tie in to the Health app is a great feature. Also, with the ability to customize the days during the week in which you would like to complete habits (such as every Monday, or Wednesday’s and Fridays, etc.), and it’s notifications of various completions and reminders to complete habits, it has proven itself to be a very stable and reliable tool. Highly recommended!
I put in a task to complete once every two weeks and then marked it as completed. Yet, it still shows up as a task that needs to be completed. If I mark a task as completed on one device, it does not show up as completed on my other devices.
I am taking action every day to accomplish each of my new habits. Off to my best-ever year. I’m a bit disappointed with streaks that are set for #/month. The new month starts, but the streak doesn’t reset. Or I can’t find the setting after a lot of searching.
Being able to track only 6 habits is a huge limitation! What about weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual habits? Frankly, I have more habits in a week I’d like to track!
Love the Apple activity integration! Would be super cool if it also integrated with Duolingo. Great app!
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!
Anything beyond marking a task complete is unintuitive and frustrating. The app is useful but is a pain to use. In spite of the pretty design, this app is one of the most confusing ones on I’ve used.
I really like this app, it's helped me stay on top of things
It really helps me stay fit and healthy
Love this app, it actually works!
Love the numbers, it makes me not want to break the streak. My only problem is there should be more than 6, it should be unlimited
Really love this app. I have tried many times to make little improvements in my life but always aimed for too many changes at once, got overwhelmed and gave up. With this, you can pick a max of 6 at a time which keeps it achievable. I've been trying to get over a relationship and look after myself better in the process and this app helps keeps me on track each day!
I use this app every day and it really helps me build good habits. At first I found it a bit complicated to use but once i got used to it it's really smart and nags you when you slip off your streaks. Still miss the old Streaks App though it was so simple to use...
Streaks is an easy to use habit tracker that works with you to help you build the habits you want. When setting up a new habit you can choose from presents, some of which feed into the Health app, or create your own, in that case Streaks will look at the habit name and try to find an appropriate icon. It's a small thing that saves you some time. It has all the features you want from a habit tracker except for support for habits that require multiple action in a day, like drinking water. Then again none of the trackers I've tried have that. Highly recommended.
If you want to form a habit of any kind, download this app. Yes it's restricted to six, but I think this is a good thing, it focuses the mind to choose the most important items. Love it.
It's a good app. The only suggestion I have is to be able to have more than 6 things but maybe as an option because maybe it's not recommended
Love this app, simple to use and doesn't bug you too much but still encourages you to create good habits.
