Simple and Effective
I use this application to keep a record of how often I practice the Wim Hof Method to manage my anxiety and panic disorder. Doesn't have a lot of the bells and whistles of the other apps which I prefer-get it, got it done. Very effective tool in tracking any discipline and it really keeps me motivated to do the task everyday! After a week you really don't want to break the chain. I like it because the desire to continue is self sustained. I am a master of procrastination and laziness and this app has changed my life for the better! Don't think just do. 😄

Good idea, doesn’t seem to be a way to keep “broken” chains
i’m using this app to keep track of how often I avoid doing a bad habit I’m trying to break. However, unless it was a glitch, it seems to delete everything that came before if you break the chain. Maybe that’s the idea of behind the app, but I would like to be able to see even the broken chains because it shows me how many days I’ve avoided doing the unhealthy behaviors, even if they get broken. The badge being only the current chain is fine though. Maybe the current chain could be one color and the old broken chains a darker shade.

Quit smoking using this app
This app has helped me quit so many addictions and poor habits including smoking. I use it for setting a habit of practicing music every day to making sure I run every day. It’s very straight forward and it’s so nice to end the day marking off all of your success. Even if some streaks break, just seeing how much progress there is each month, makes it easy to count your losses in a positive way. I’ve recommended this to many friends who also want to set good habits and break bad ones.

Having a place to record my goal compliance really helps me to improve it. This app does just what it's intended to and does it well. Sometimes I find myself wanting to record more fine grained detail. But if it had that, it would be a different app. And I've sometimes found a more detailed, time consuming interface to be a deterrent to recording anything at all. So I appreciate that this app is straightforward and easy to use.

Motivates me to keep the chain going
I actually love tapping the X to show I’ve done it. The gaps bother me and this simple thing has made the difference! I’m a ONE Thing fan and I heard that Geoff used it, so I gave it a try for our 66 day challenge. My 13 yo son is now using it because his teacher gave them a 66 day challenge to read x amount every day to build the habit. There is no limit to the things you might improve by tracking them and being accountable for your wins and losses and strive to have more wins. I like complicated things, but simple is what’s working for me. Love this app!

I’m a simple guy. Being able to track various things that I mean to do (exercise, volunteer work, doing things with my kids) in a simple, visible way is great. I feel good every time I put an X on a calendar. It’s also helpful to be able to look back over the previous year/month to see trends and help remember how I’ve been living up to my goals over the long term.

Love this app.
Amazing and simple! Tried others with many more frills but keep coming back to this app. Love the simplicity. No badges or gimmicks. I would like to add if possible in future updates the ability to cross a day more than once? Such as something you did twice that day. That would be an amazing addition.

This app is wonderful
This a simple app but helps me to achieve my goals or things that are hard to let . It has help to achieve great habits and pretty difficult goals. Sometimes it’s hard to let go certain person that cause you harm that once you consider a friend, for those difficult time I have use this app and it helps heal the wound. It also help me achieve simple goals like cleaning my room and so on ! Suggestions: -If you could add a variety of positive and encouragement quotes it would be nice -It would be awesome to see this app on Apple Watch -Add Touch ID lock - Add a setting to change the size of fonts and letters, the numbers and letters of the calendar are too small

Excellent App!
Strong visuals, easy to use. Effective way to track habits and goals. So helpful that it is possible to track several different goals at the same time and that goals can be color coded. Love the ability to add an X to the app calendar each day a goal is met. Having used the app for years, I can highly recommend it!!!

Great App! One Suggestion
I really like this app because I can keep track of all the good habits I want to develop! However, I would like to suggest adding an option to have a reminder for each individual chain. For example, I could set a specific time for the app to remind me to complete my goal of exercising at 6am while another reminder will notify me to read a few chapters in my book at 2pm.

Exactly what I wanted
I wanted a “don’t break the chain” calendar app so that I could remember to do a 1 minute plank everyday 🎉🎉🎉 this app is perfect for my needs. I can see the month at large and it is so satisfying to mark that X 🤩🤩🤩 I have it remind me 2 or 3 times a day so that I make sure to get it done ✅

Simple and aesthetic
This is exactly the habit “chain-building” app I have been looking for. It’s simple to record when you complete a daily habit, and the aesthetic/UI is wonderful. Well worth paying a small amount to support the developers. Great job, thank you.

This app makes it easy to track your dailies! My favorite feature is the widget! It allows you to see all your dailies spread out in a single view for the current day and bubble in what you have done and see what you still need to do. So great!!!!

Simple and Straightforward
I paid for Pro because after a couple of weeks of using the free version I realized this app fits my needs perfectly and I wanted to make more chains. The developer was very responsive in helping me with an issue I was having. Money happily spent.

Love this app
I have a lot of side jobs that I need to keep track of to show my clients monthly perfect for book keeping. My only suggestion could you add a time spent per goal? That would be amazing I would even pay extra for that!!!!

Good, but....
I wish you could add an alarm and set it in the app...and make some custom notifications and set the time they pop up. It would also be great if you could connect with another person for accountability, like they get notified if you haven’t done your task before a certain set time. Good app tho! Very motivating!

Extremely helpful
It certain helps as a supplement to keep track of goals. I'd recommend also sending a picture of your chain to an accountability partner as an added layer of helping you to secure your chain

It keeps me writing
The simple expedient of having an app to track my writing is all I need to write every day. I don't want to break my chain, and so it's a constant awareness in the back of my mind. Plus, if I don't write, the app reminds me to write.

I like the visual calendar
A scrolling calendar with “X” marks is so visually motivating. You can just see at a glance how many times and when you did something. So glad to have found this

Needs updated for Interactive Widgets
It's a great app, but it needs updated for the new interactive widget function, you should be able to click the widget to complete the task, right now widgets just open the app. Only reason it's not a 5 star app.

No intrusive ads, and all it asks of you to make another chain is to post about it on social media. Thank you so much; Jerry Seinfeld was right about how much this helps.

Loved for my iPhone but does NOT synch with iPad
I don’t think that it’s unreasonable to expect apps that are marketed as supported for both iPads and iPhones on IOS 10 or higher to actually synch between the devices. For a productivity app it would be the opposite of productive to have to re enter that data.
