Prune - Habit breaker - App Review



Do you need help in giving up something?

Prune could help you achieve your goal(s).

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The first screen you will see (apart from allowing push notifications) is entitled "I will live without". You then enter whatever it is you are going to live without, then pick the length, using a neat slider, from 1 day to 1 year.

The bottom of the screen has three options:

begin
... yes, you guessed it, that's how to start the process

suggest
If you can't think of something to give up, the App will suggest something such as: salty foods, voicemail, or smoking.

resurrect
This allows you to restart or continue a project you had previously started.

Checking your progress shows a circular timer which always increases, together with the time value clearly displayed.

You can run multiple projects simultaneously, as well as share any of these directly by Facebook, Twitter, or Email.

Cost
In return for your $2.00, you get a motivational tool.

Indispensability
Most people need some prop to help them change habits; this may well be yours.

Dependability
The App works; there's not really much to go with the wrong.

Security
Sharing your personal information through Facebook or Twitter should be treated with the usual caution.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Could be the prop you need.

  1. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 1.6 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    Item detail screen now has a swiping feature which allows access to even more item detail. From here you can now edit the habit name as well as see statistics regarding their goal

    Added a configurable start date in the add screen

    Potential crash fix in the share screen when sharing via email.

    Shortened the beginning animation

    Removed the instructions that were showing at the beginning. These are now able to be found within the “?” area. (Swipe down on the overview screen.)

    Notifications were not being removed when resetting, extending or deleting a goal. We fixed this.
