Try Capsicum for free for 14 days. The 14 days don't have to be consecutive and we don't automatically charge you at the end of your trial.

Capsicum helps you plan your day, track your habits, and tell your story. With Planning, you can check the forecast, see your schedule, tackle your to-do list, and take notes. With Habit Tracking, you can add habits you want to track such as flossing or going for a run, mark these off, and review your history. With Loose Leaf, you can make lists of anything you want and keep a journal.

Inspired by physical planners, Capsicum allows you to create multiple notebooks, each with your own personal style. Add Siri Shortcuts to help log habits on the go.

Capsicum is free to try for 14 days and after this requires a subscription for full access.

Depends What You're Looking For

I've been a stationery girl all my life - I love pretty journals, colorful pens, etc. This app really scratches that itch. Its appearance is very customizable, even in the free version.

That said, the functionality needs work. The planning function is a super simple To Do list, although contrary to some other reviews, you can set reminders. But if you want to see a time associated with a task, you have to put it in your calendar. I'd like the option of a calendar-style view.

The habit tracker is so minimal that it's almost useless if you want to track more than a couple of habits. When you tic off a habit, it records when you completed it (if you choose), but it immediately resets. I want a habit to either disappear until tomorrow, or I want it to change color, remain checked, or reorder - anything that makes it easy to see what I haven't done yet. The more habits you add, the harder it is to figure out what remains to be done. Also, there's no way to set a habit for, say, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The loose leaf function it okay, nothing fancy, but I can't find a way to delete a page.

While I strongly believe in supporting developers and don't mind subscriptions as opposed to a one-time charge, there really isn't enough here to justify the price at this time.

Love it, but sad

I randomly downloaded this app, but I actually fell in love with it. I used the loose leaf section A LOT and developed an attachment with this app, however I didn’t know that it was free for only 14 days. When I realized that i could no longer use it I was soooo disappointed. I suggest that maybe instead of making it free for only 14 days, you should have in-app purchases so that at least the app is usable for other people. The app is really great and I love the idea but I only gave it three stars because I was really disappointed when I couldn’t use it anymore.

Developer Response ,

We’re so glad that you enjoyed Capsicum. The reason we have a subscription is that the app has ongoing costs to maintain. We’d love Capsicum to be around for years, if not decades, and the only way to sustain it over time is recurring revenue through ads or subscriptions, and we really don’t want to ruin the experience with ads.

Overhyped and now seemingly abandoned

As many apps are today, the dev hyped and promoted this app to the hilt only to stop supporting/updating it months after release. When you charge a premium and then seemingly abandon your app mere months later, you’re being disrespectful to your paying customers. This app hasn’t received a single update in well over four years. Where’s the update for iOS 14, 15, and 16? I’ve now subscribed to well over 100 apps, but this is one app that isn’t deserving of your hard earned coin. Subscription apps that go more than four years without a single update should be removed from the App Store. Devs that stop supporting/updating their apps shouldn’t be allowed to offer subscriptions. I’ll never support this developer again.
