Setting serious goals and sticking to them is something I’ve always struggled with. You know how it goes; set some goals, feel super motivated, get started, motivation begins to wane…you know how the story ends!
I have to say, this habit tracker app has filled me with a great deal of hope and optimism because I absolutely love the structured approach to the four different types of goals. If you’re a procrastinator like me then this is definitely the habit app for you!
Let's take a closer look at what this app has to offer in our Strides app review. It could end up being one of the best habit apps for your needs.
The different goal types are essentially based around whether you are aiming for a specific target, or want to replace a negative habit with a more positive one. Milestones help you to stay motivated while Averages help with actually sticking to certain positive behaviors.
Track Your Goals In a Smart Way
This app also includes more than 300 preset goal trackers to get you started on the right track, covering everything from weight loss to career betterment, and you can also set up recurring reminders to ensure you never forget to keep a log of your progress.

This app has generally been very well received; however, one user has remarked with the following: “[…] the UX is a bit sloppy in some areas. For example, when you have an alert you will also see an enumerated badge on your app icon. When you open the app, it doesn't tell you which items need your attention, so I pretty much have to open log each goal that day to make the badge disappear from the app icon.”
