Best of 12+ tested

I have tested over a dozen habit apps, and this one is the best, so settled for Streaks two years ago, and it helps every day. It's a ONE-TIME-FEE, no subscription, so the most affordable of the better ones (next to "Done"). It's sleek, usable, beautiful. You can adjust frequency, adapt goals as you improve, set default or scheduled notifications. The only limitation is the maximum of 12 habits, but that should be enough for most users.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The clean visuals and easy-to-use interface encourage daily use of this app with little hassle. Streaks will be an especially good fit for people who are self-motivated and just need a few reminders and some visual affirmation but who don't need a lot of bells-and-whistles rewards. For some kids and teens, however, this app may not be motivating enough to hook them into the concept that the value of keeping a "streak" going lies in the accomplishment itself. There's no question that it can be an easy, useful habit-tracking tool. Still, the app's final value largely depends on the user and how they're motivated (or not) by its basic premise.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
