First App I will buy I live for freeware, and hate paying for software unless it is awesome. This is the first app that I will be buying. It's easy to use, clean and uncluttered, and does a good job at helping me monitor the things that I want to monitpr about myself in my real life. The ability to make entries for previous days, the badge counter, and it's long term graphs are great, but what I really appreciated was its excellent tutorial. Well done!
Fantastic application, even nicer developer So, I have used about all the goal tracking apps out there. Habit Factor, Habits, Streaks.. you name it. But all of them didn't do exactly what I wanted, nor did they look sleek. The way of Life does!
It shows me with one glance what I did well and what I didn't in one week. The more green I see in my trackable item, the better I did that week. The app just tracks yes/no actions, but also things that are both good or bad for you automatically. Set up takes 10 seconds and it works as a charm.
Want to know the best part of this app? A developer who cares. After I provided feedback about the app, he wrote me back and answered to ALL of my suggestions. He actually is planning to develop this app further and make it into something the users want. Fantastic! Deserves 5 stars in my opinion, especially for a first version. Recommend you all to try it out for free and if you like the feel of it, please buy it. It took me 1 minute to decide to buy it after I downloaded it.
Awsome!! I have been using the free version of this app for a week now and this is the first one that I've seriously consider to buy ( as an itouch newbie of two months).
Simple and efficient. We can discover a lot about ourselves.
I recommend this for people who are trying to quit smoking.
John C. Have purchased and used several goal tracking applications (Habit Factor, Streaks, etc.). This one is my favorite. I use it every day. Quick. Simple. Intuitive. Does a great job of tracking progress on my goals. The app has given me extra motivation to get my goals done each day. I emailed the developer with a suggestion for a future enhancement and received a quick reply that he was already working on it. I appreciated his responsiveness and knowing he is committed to making the app even better.
Get er done
Great application, simple easy to use and it works. I'm tracking the number of days in the month I exercise and a few other habits I'm trying to make or break.
With a tool like this I think the key is to give it time. It's all about the trends and the change. I'm only in my second month but I'm looking forward to ending the month having gone to the gym more times than last month.
That's a trend that can continue at most 30, maybe 31 months in a row. Eventually I anticipate that having a longer history will help sustain progress and recover from any reversals.
Just what the doctor ordered...... Okay! An easy & practical way to govern my sore spots & prove to my Diabetes doctor that I do hear what he says about how my mind ( yes, I have one) and body can and do work together with the right tools.
Three cheers for the developers of this program.may actually lose some much needed weight using this app alongside another that I have been using for about a year now. Thanks guys!!!!!!
Confirmation of positive change There are so many apps out there that teach you how to change. What about recognizing and validating the positive changes we are striving to make in our lives? This easy to use app helps me see trends in my habits. Do I break down and have late night snacks mostly on Saturday and Sunday nights? Was May a rougher month? Have I really been smoke free for 2 weeks? It helps encourage me to see long rows of green. It has been worth the cost to track more than 3 life style trends. The developer is responsive and open to suggestions. I recommend this highly. Namaste. Peace.
FINALLY! A habit app I USE!! So many similar apps out there, this is the only one that's actually FUN and easy to use! I love it. I use it every day and it keeps me incredibly focused and motivated. THANK YOU! It's perfect, but please make it universal.
FINALLY FOUND THIS APP AFTER WASTING MY MONEY ON 5 APPS I'M GOING TO TOSS! This app is AMAZING!!! I have been looking for two weeks for an app where I can create several goals and look at my progress all at once without having to change from one goal to the next. Basically my goals are cardio 5x a week, legs 3x, abs 3x. I bought 5 different apps to see if I could set it up so I could look at my week in a glance but all the apps I bought I had to change from one goal to the next to see my stats. Then I finally found this on a google search of recommended apps! YAY!!! I love it. Smart developers the way they included a tutorial. YAY! Did I say that already?!? I'm just so happy. YAY!!
Simplicity Itself This is a terrific app. It enters a crowded market for life-tracking applications and blows them all away with it's simple presentation and drop-dead simple ease-of-use. I love being able to just mark a day as Good or Bad, or create whatever category I want. It's going to be really neat to look back on this data and see when things are going well and when they have been rough.
The idea that you don't need to track detail, you just need to mark Yes or No is a brilliant one. I can't wait until I build up some history and see how I'm doing.
Like Joe's Goals, but even simpler Very simple app, almost exactly what I was looking for. I sent the author a few feature requests, and he responded immediately with good news that two of them will be in an upcoming version:
1 - can record a goal as "neutral", useful for goals that don't apply that day.
2 - can attach a small note to a give goal/day, to act as a mini-journal.
Even without those, this is still a very useful app for tracking habits.
Cool way to track things I think I have tried every tracking app out there or at least the ones I think are the best. I have been using this for close a year. It's really unique how to look all of your tracked data in the trending portion of the app.
Outstanding in it's simplicity & effectiveness I have tried many goal setting apps and this is without a doubt a best in class app that allows you to track key positive & negative lifestyle activities. As a visual person, I find the simple (green v red) color coded tracking bar to be very satisfying & effective in motivating me daily to stay on point w/important lifestyle choices. The app is deceptively simple, but it works!

Well-designed app! Well-designed, intuitive interface. Has a cool feature showing graphs of your behavior over time. I tried several others but this one was my favorite due to its reminders, its easy interface, and its ability to manage several "tasks" or "habits" at once. Unfortunately I still haven't broken my habit but that has nothing to do with the application.
Perfect The Way It Is This app does exactly what I want. It is quick and easy to use. If you like this app but want additional features tailored to your specific needs - why hold your stars ransom? Plus the great thing about this app is its simplicity. Some people want added complexity to break this feature.
I liked how I could try it out for free to know if it would work for me.
It has definitely been helping me to stay motivated on those things that I need to do daily to improve my life.
A big thanks to the developer.
One of the best apps that I've spent money on.
Simplicity is the key I like this app because it does exactly what it says. It is easy to use, reminds me of my habit and helps me track it. Perfect for forming new habits. If you work on one habit at a time, keep it simple, and track, you are much more likely to be successful. Adding goals and other doodads misses the point. Don't change it, please.
Beautifully simple WayofLife is the cleanest way to track changes in my habits and work toward incremental gains every day. I've definitely learned a few things about my health and happiness with this app (hint: it all comes down to getting enough sleep). Easy to use, visually pleasing. Highly recommended.
So simple and useful! I've been using those for about two weeks and I LOVE it. Absolutely worth the fee for the full version. You can create customized items to track and tell the program whether they're good or bad for you. It's straightforward and understated, so I don't feel like crap having to admit to doing one of my "bad" things...which means I'll keep on keeping track!
A great app for daily changes Like the other reviewers, I use this app everyday. I track the habits I want to establish that don't necessarily get included in my larger goals. For example, I don't put "flossing," or "don't drink soda" in my larger goal of "Improving My Health," but this app is a great daily reminder to either do, or don't do, those things. The tracking graphs are very easy to read and when I had a question, the developer emailed me back in less than 5 minutes. Amazing!
Nice reminder to stick to goals I like this, it helps to remind me of those resolutions and goals I make. I have not come across a more functional app to track such variables.
Id like to see Something implemented that counts the number of ounces of water I drink each day. This is currently something I try to track with post-it notes through-out the day.
It's basically perfect This app is a couple things that make a real difference when it comes to apps:
1. It's stable
2. It's well designed
3. The guy who made it seems to care about it
It is a well thought out UI that has never crashed on me.
As has been mentioned, there are no intervals besides daily, but it is still great. I've used it for over a year with no crashes or errors.
Fun 2 use; very polished. Clean & visual, worth the price if it helps even slightly. Feels like the right tool for me. Have used ever morning around 6 AM (after I see the notification I set) for the past six months, and it has helped me immensely.
There are possible features which have been suggested that could be made discreetly optional so as to preserve the existing elegantly concise interface, but the app keeps getting better and better.
Very, very helpful, thank you.
Beautifully simple & powerful The tremendous value of this app lies in its simplicity. Set it up by entering the behaviours that you want to encourage in yourself; and, of course, those that you wish to avoid. It took me just a few minutes to identify and enter a useful list of things to do and not do that I know will enhance my life.
On a daily basis, the uncompromising (there are no "maybe" or "a little" options) "yes" / "no" tracking of each item starkly reveals your progress, and compels you to assess whether your really are achieving your goals.
(To get the most out of this app, set up specific, measurable goals: "Eat vegetables" is next to useless if you tick "yes" after choking down one quarter of a carrot. Far better to have "Eat 3 portions of vegetables" and "Run for 45 minutes" if you are keen to make a meaningful difference to your way of life.)
Great app!!! Very convenient and handy, shows you graphs of the past year to compare and analyze how good or bad you were at doing those daily or weekly tasks or routines you try and remember. I recommend this strongly.
