App of the Day - Apple (2020)
A powerful routine app that makes you behave.
your concentration low? Do you habitually postpone your work? Do you need nudge
to make your behavior easier? Do you want to create and maintain a regular
life? Is your sleeping pattern a mess because you can...
I’ve been looking for an app like this for a long time! It works perfectly for my purposes. I love that it shows an updated completion time as I finish tasks early (or late). I can also see what’s coming up ahead on my task list. I love the reminders when I press pause on a task, because I really do need them. Also, scrolling through the suggestions from months past, and looking at the app features now, it seems that the developers really have listened and added features that people have requested. I’m only disappointed in the fact that there’s no way to buy the “premium” version outright - only a subscription. I would gladly pay a one-time fee, but don’t pay for subscriptions on apps like this. I hope the developers will reconsider this payment model.
Great interface, but gets stuck after 5 tasks
I really like the interface, but currently after the fifth task in my list, when I click “Done,” it changes the time, but doesn’t update what task I’m on. In my case, after my 5 minutes “Shower” task is done, it starts the timer for the next task, but still says “Shower” and shows the shower icon, instead of “Make coffee.” For me, that makes the app pretty much not worth using at this point. I also would love to be able to see the rest of the list as the timers are on, so that I could tell what’s coming up next. This isn’t a big drawback, as you’re likely to know what the next step in your morning routine is, but it’s a feature that I appreciated in a very simple app called Many Timer that I used long ago until the developer discontinued it and it became incompatible with my new phone. This app has a lot of potential, but there are some kinks to work out, and it would have to be a really great app to justify me paying a monthly subscription rather than a one-time purchase cost.
Great app for post-pandemic habit building
I’d been struggling to find my pre-pandemic routines, so I figured let’s start new ones. With all that’s going on in the world it’s hard to stay focused. Let alone stay on tasks. I’ve been able to accurately figure out just how much motivation I have during this time to accomplish tasks and to use that time wisely. I have “Routineries” for everything now. Morning, Bedtime, Cleaning, Study, Cooking, Exercise,etc. I’ve been able to be consistent again or even to access whether certain habits serve me or whether it’s time to spice it up with addendums. I think this is a great app for “Getting your life together”. The hardest part of starting a new routine is remembering what you said you were going to do. And this app is my accountability partner and does just that!
I have recently discovered that I have autism. Seeing as I have lived an entire 22 years of life without knowing, I never knew why I struggled so much with routines and tasks. If i kinda didnt want to do it at all, I would straight up not be able to do it. And that can sometimes cause issues. I have been using this app for 5 days now. My morning routine has now fully incorporated hygiene! I like pressing the done button and the faster I do the tasks, the more freetime i have before work. So it’s kind of like a game for me. Thank you for making this app free. 🙂
Watch app is unusable
I just started using this app, and while the concept is great, I was looking forward to using it in conjunction with my apple watch so I don't have to be constantly looking at and tapping at my phone screen to track, start & end routines. However, the watch app won't open half the time. I tap on it and it acts like it's opening but it doesn't. When I do get it to open it's only when I have a routine actively running, and it will act like the routine is still running even after I've stopped it on my phone. I've tried uninstalling & reinstalling, restarting my watch and the phone app etc but nothing has fixed it yet. On top of that, the app does not seem to have even a basic complication to add to a watch face. That's more of an inconvenience next to the app not working at all, however.
I tried this app for the first time today... the notifications are really passive aggressive. I struggle with routine, and I also struggle with mental health and anger issues. I was already off to a rough start this morning when the notifications never came in and my alarm didn’t go off. Already in a bad mental space didn’t help that when I had to pause the routine in order to complete my yoga video, and the I started getting notifications from the app telling me it’d been a few minutes and it was “still waiting :) “ I really.. really disliked that. I admit I’m sensitive but it was enough in that moment to push me over the edge. Honest feedback for developers is maybe don’t word your notifs like a passive aggressive mother.
I love this app. I’m terrible at habits and routines, but I’m on a four day streak with this app!!!! That’s huge for me given my ADHD and general spaciness. I also like the fact that it’s free and they don’t force premium on you like a lot of other apps do. It’s nice that I can just come to this app and do what I need to do. The lack of intrusive ads and the fact that it’s actually a super helpful app makes me want to invest in it so I can see all of the data they collect about your habits. Thanks so much to the developers for this wonderful app 💕
Great features and works exactly how you would expect it to! Feature Requests: - Since it tracks how much time you spend on each task, would be great to have a breakdown. In other words, sometimes some tasks might take consistently longer than you a lot for and it would be nice to know that so you can adjust your routine to be more realistic. - Next feature request would be to duplicate routines. I have a morning routine if I wake up late that is half as long as my normal one, would be nice to duplicate the current one. - Would be nice for each task within a routine to trigger a Siri shortcut or an callback link to help automate curtain habits. Bugs: - One other note, I’m not sure how to use the “feedback” area in the app or the environment area. They don’t show up doing the routine, should I do if after? It’s a bit confusing. - Even though it’s Monday, the routines that aren’t supposed to be completed on Monday show up, and it’s confusing.
Routine Follower Overnight
I’ve always been someone who loves planning out new routines and starting new habits, but I would always lose motivation in the moment. I went from trying over and over to start habits/routines all of my life to starting and consistently sticking with them since! This app provides the focus I need and an estimated end time so that I know I’ll be done before I need to be out the door or move on to the next thing. Couldn’t say enough about how life changing this has been for me! Thank you!
Please make an Apple Watch App. Update: thanks for reading the review. I can see a couple of ways to make the watch app great, but a watch app that shows the time (digital in upper right), the task at hand, and the time left for that task with the same options shown on the phone app would be great. Not sure how it would hit battery though. The watch app itself could just have routines to select and start. I think adding configurations and making changes should be done on the phone to keep it simple.
I’ve wanted and downloaded so many “to do” and “routine” apps where it’s always necessary to pay but with this app there’s no need! its so very very simple and easy to form with my daily life. I’ve honestly never felt more organized. I will always highly recommend this app to everyone haha its one of absolute favorite! I do wish that we could add more routines but I totally understand the need for payment its just a little wish of mine :)
Perfect For the Visual!
This app is everything I’ve been looking for. I’m a mom who is very adhd and visual. There are so many icon options to choose from. Just try this app! Give it the free trial and take the time to create all the routines you need, and then try using it for the 7 days. If it’s not working out then don’t pay for it and use the free version to just keep track of the minimum. It’s so worth it!
From Frantic to Focus
This app helps my adult ADD brain stay on track through the two hours it takes me to get myself and my family ready for each day. It helps me make sure I give time (even if it’s just a little) to things like, looking at the calendar for day, running through my list of goals, etc. when I usually get distracted.
Great App but 1 problem!
I absolutely love this app! It gets you so organized and let’s you have fun with it! I think it will help me have a better day and healthier one too! But here’s the problem........ If you would like to make 3 or more routines you have to pay/subscribe which is always my least favorite thing about apps! At least 3 routines for free would be great! If you can change that I would love it so much I can change it to a 5 star!
Life changing App
This is a life changing app. Once I start it it motivates me to just go from one task to the next and before I know it I am way ahead of my day. I still have some days where I don’t push start so that is a problem but I think I’m going to focus on the streak feature to help motivate me to start it. Like I said once I hit start my routines just flow one into another. Love it!
