    Pros: 

    Thorough

    Cons: 

    Feels a little snake-oil'y / creepy

    I appreciate what Fabulous is trying to do, and I think this direction is actually really interesting. However, bundling "you agree to our TOS by continuing" with the CTA for setting a wake-up time, or using weirdly-worded false choice options ("Yes I want to succeed" for enabling notifications) inherently makes me distrust the intentions and motivations of the app. It feels psychologically manipulative in an opaque way, whereas something like this should - in my opinion - edge towards transparency.

    Pros: 

    visually engaging, unintrusive onboarding, great guided "coaching," customization

    Cons: 

    can be a little buggy

    Have been using this for a bit now, and it's been terrific in helping me stay focused and relaxed. I love the guided sessions called "make me fabulous!"

    Pros: 

    Motivation + Science

    Cons: 

    Haven't found any yet

    What an awesome little app! I've been using it on Android for a week now and I'm loving it so far! My morning routine has definitely become much better, the morning reminders help me keep on track and I love the scientific approach and insights from behavioral science. Great job!

    Pros: 

    Good onboarding

    Personalized habit plan

    Scientific based approach

    Price

    UX/UI

    Cons: 

    Sphere part is confusing

    Hi!

    Just went through some habit apps and yours is so much better than any other I've tried. I like your on-boarding so I don't miss any feature.

    UX/UI design looks cool. Actually everything is perfect.

    But. As it was mentioned above sometimes it looks a little bit creepy, so it's only my perception, I can't explain rational reasons.

    The Sphere part is confusing. I don't like when the product has another product. I want to install an app that I can fully use and don't want to think that I have no access to some of it's additional features.

    And the part '' writing commitment contract'' freaks me out, I've never tried it, as it looks creepy.

    I like the idea of having strong community and being a part of it. But I think for me (I'm writing this review after 1 hour of using it) it was too energy consuming to go though everything and reading all the text and so on.

    Pros: 

    Decent Design - although more recent releases were less so

    Cons: 

    Manipulative, Opaque. Shady. Predatory Subscription Models

    The app gets annoying with its constant (and noisy) notifications and the company seems more like a carnival - bright lights, noises and shiny things that distract you from the creepy guy taking your money at the door.

    Questionable Subscription and Privacy policy practices - they seem more driven to keep you clicking then properly follow GDPR privacy policy standards by bundling multiple actions into one and using unclear language as Arman pointed out. It feels like they are using their behavioural psych background to manipulate.

    Would definitely not recommend - their subscription models are shady, their customer support policies questionable and I think that attitude is subtly repeated throughout the application

  • Pros: 

    Very thorough step by step guidance to retrain your brain and beat procrastination with a scientific approach.

    Cons: 

    None.

    A habit coach with amazing guidance. Like a great friend that reminds you how good it feels to reach your goals and how to get back up when you fall.
