See Goal Status at a Glance:
● The main view of Persistence is the goal list making it simple to interact with each goal.
● On this list Persistence informs you when you are on and off target, and helps create a desire to complete all your goals for the day and to get ahead for tomorrow.
● Make progress to get rid of the red (off target) and blue (normal daily effort) vertical bars and stay on target.
● Sort the list by title, target, last entered progress date, by hand, or group into categories.
Easy goal progress entry:
● Tap the goal from the main view and record your progress amount, notes, and time. Or make a quick amount update right from the list.
● Make multiple entries per day.
● It's easy to go back and update values or add notes later.
Different Types of Goal Tracking:
● For some goals, you have an end target number (like reading a book) and date by when you want to accomplish the goal.
● For some goals, you just want to do a daily amount (and there is no end date)
● For some goals, you just want to track daily progress, but you have no daily goal amount to reach.
● For all goals, enter your progress during the day and Persistence will show you how far you've come and how much you still need to do to be on target (if the target is applicable).
Journal Your Progress:
● Enter notes each time you make progress to journal your daily activities for review later.
● Review a daily log of all activities, or view a log for an individual goal.
Track All Your Goal Activities:
● You can use Persistence to track many different types of goals and habits. Some examples are:
▪ practicing a musical instrument
▪ learning a foreign language
▪ writing in your journal
▪ doing homework
▪ walking the dog
Edit or Change Progress Entries:
● Made a mistake on an amount, or need to change the date the progress was done? No problem. Persistence gives you a complete historical list of every entry ever made and allows them to be changed and/or deleted.
Statistical Page with Bar Graphs:
● Persistence can break down your stats in numerous ways and shows you a bar chart of daily or weekly progress.
● Set local reminder notifications to be reminded at a certain time that more work needs to be done towards a goal.
● Persistence shows a badge notification number that shows how many goals and habits have remaining work to accomplish.
● Detailed user guide that covers every aspect of the application.

Ratings and Reviews
Simple, easy and complete
I tried several habit trackers and was never satisfied. I bought this one after reading the user manual online and realized that it had everything I needed.
I especially needed the ability to add a habit with a daily goal number and increment a counter throughout the day to meet this total (example drink 8 glasses of water). Some other apps only allowed me to complete the daily goal ( so I had to do the counting myself and enter at the of the day ). Other apps had bugs and incremented my daily counter randomly and on its own.
Overall, this app is worth the price. No bugs, easy to use and complete. I love it and use it daily!!!!
Wonderful habit and goal app
I’ve tried a bunch of different apps to track goals and habits. I even spent a couple hundred thousand dollars trying to develop a new platform that helps coaches get results with their clients on establishing habits and achieving goals.
Then I started using persistence and it was simple and elegant. And it worked. Better than anything I had tried or created.
Then I stopped trying to create a new app and I enjoy using this one and it helps me a lot. I now recommend this app to my students and readers.
Simple and effective
I tested many habit tracking apps, and this is by far the best. I am able to set goals on various intervals (daily, weekly, monthly, x times per day/week/month) and easily track my progress. There are also nice metrics to show my historical progress. The app has a small learning curve on how to setup the intervals the way you want, and the documentation is great. Could use an update to support iPhone X sized screens.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
