    • Apple Watch app

      Improvements: Same Today view as the iOS app and complications to quickly see how many trackers there are left to log from the Watch's home screen, and to open the app with a tap.

      • HealthKit

        It would be really helpful if this linked with HealthKit. If I have a goal for exercise. Or take my vitamins. Or medicines. Etc. and I already log this in another app to be able to track in health, it would be really cool to not have to log it on this one. And get a reminder if it isn’t completed. I know it seems strange, but often I log something in another app because I like to see what I’m doing for my body. It would just eliminate an extra step or two while also tracking my habits (or…

        • Integration with IFTTT

          IFTTT integration would allow us so many connectivity options!
          From simple stuff like, "Add an entry to a Google spreadsheet every time i successfully complete this habit" to more aesthetic things like, "If all my goals were met today, make the Phillips Hue lights do a rainbow color gradient."

          • Progress Reports

            The tracking of habits is quite good but instead of the dashboard we should have an option to switch to analytics view that would display all habits in calendar mode or in a graph so we can get a general idea of how we are doing with all our habits without having to click on each one individually. Tracking is useless without the ability to easily get the picture of where we stand and what we need to improve and that’s not as smooth as it should be right now in my opinion. Also would be very helpful for those…

              Status update: We’re wrapping up a few improvements to the app that lay a solid foundation for the Progress Reports feature.

              The only step left after v7.7.1 for iOS is to add support for reports to the API, so while we do that we’ll rebuild the Apple Watch app, then focus 100% on the big v8.0 release of Progress Reports!

              Thanks for your patience. It’ll be worth the wait. :)

            • Consider When to Log for Streak/Success

              I have a habit that is “bike to work” which is set to log MTWThF. I bike ThF one week and MT the next week, and it counts it as 4/6 days instead of 4/4. If it’s only set to log on certain days, only those days should count towards a streak.

              • Dark Mode

                A few of my other apps have dark/night mode so that I can use them in the very early morning/late at night with out creating too much light.

                I think that’d be helpful here, especially since I track some of my goals at 5 am and 10pm and can sometimes have trouble with the extra bright screen.

                Thanks!

                • Show a weekly view

                  It would be nice to see a weekly view which would show the list of the habits scheduled on each day so I know if I can add more habits on that day or if I added too many habits in one day.

                  • Group by morning, afternoon & evening

                    The Fabulous App shows a day’s task in three groups, morning, day, and night. It makes it far easier to view the first few tasks on my radar. Stride’s current grid view presents all of my tasks all at once, which is far less meaningful if I saw just the ones that matter in the moment.

                    What is contextually important? Show me those things, and diminish the others.

                    • Log time in hr/min

                      I have a few tasks where I need to track time. For example playing the piano. I I have a goal of 2 hours a week, and at the moment all I can do it count by minutes then do math to figure out 120 means 2 hours. This get more unweildy when I have a goal of 15-20 for something. It would be nice to be able to set a goal as a unit of Time, then add as units of time.

                      • iOS 12: Integrate with Siri Shortcut

                        The new iOS 12 has been announced and I envision how this app can be part of this!

                        Now that Apple is pushing forward with simple voice command, how about allowing user to set command to initiate key habits? Or to count Number or set progress Goal? This can be on either iPhone or Apple Watch

                        For example:
                        -Say, “I drank X glass of water” would add X glass of water drank (habit)
                        -Say, “I went to the gym” and it would act as “Yes” to your gym tracker (habit)
                        -Say , “I finished meditating” would count as +1 to…

                          We’re adding Siri Shortcuts to Strides in the next update! :)

                          It’ll start out adding a log for a Habit tracker when you say the phrase you choose to Siri, and we’ll expand it to goal value logging when Apple adds support for that.

                        • ‘Projected’ moves finish date instead of end result

                          The projected number currently adjusts your end result based on how quick your pace is at the moment, but I don’t find this useful.

                          For example, if my goal is to read the Bible in a year, and I’m ahead of schedule, I would much rather know how much quicker I’m going to finish than that I’m going to read 1.24 Bibles by the end of the year.

                          So instead, there should at least be an option to have ‘projected’ present the projected finish date instead of the projected result.

                          Thanks.

                          • Keep Averages in Today View until Goal is met

                            When an average goal is logged once, it disappears from the today view. This is fine for logs done once per day, but average goals done multiple times per day should stay in the today view until the average is met. Can there be an option to choose whether to close it out for the day, or have it stay in today view until the average is met? Having this as an option would really help the today view be more accurate for those of us that use average goals multiple times per day. (I’ve tried using habits, but if…

                              As a user, it would be helpful if I could track my goals in the units I would prefer. For instance, if could track the drink water goal in ounces of water drank instead of number of times per day.

                              • Don't calculate percentage completed until the day's over

                                I have a tracker for brushing my teeth twice a day. I brush my teeth once in the morning and once at night. However, for the entire duration of the day, the percentage completed section doesn't include the current day. Thus, my percentage completed is lower than it should be, which I find annoying. It would be great to only calculate the percentage completed using full days.

                                • Rolling average graph of current rolling average?

                                  The rolling average tracker type is very good for certain habits that you don't care that you hit every single time and need an unbroken streak, but more as an indication of how well you're doing in the past 30 days, i.e. rolling average. However, I'd find it very very useful to also be able to see how the rolling average is developing for time. That is, a line chart with each point being that day's rolling average, instead of a bar chart with each logged value?

                                  Moving averages charts could also be a combined line chart showing a bar…

                                    • Link Strides App to Summit App

                                      When I make a goal on strides, I’d love for it to also appear on summit so that I don’t have to put it in twice. The two apps are made by the same company, aren’t they? I wish I could have an account that both apps synced to.

                                        • Increase target without failing historical weeks

                                          Now I am achieving my target of twice per week, I want to increase this to 3 times per week without the past weeks all changing as they failed to achieve the new target, even though I did achieve the target of 2 times per week as it was at the time of logging it.
