Full for iOS review: Capable goal-tracking app needs work

In situations like this, the simplicity of launching the app, swiping a goal, and closing the app is lost. Adding the power to rearrange goals would reinforce the main selling point of Full.

Remembering to track

When I approach using an app like this, I always think it's a good idea but wish I didn't have to remember to actually launch it to track my progress. It's the same with task-managing apps -- I can never remember to enter reminders into the app. Oh, the irony.

What the developers at Full decided to do was set a recurring notification for the app. Doing so means your iOS device will remind you to track your goals every day. For me, that reminder seems to fire every night at 7 p.m. At that time of night, I'm typically spending time with my kids, making alerts like this one something I ignore or dismiss without a second thought.

Unfortunately I can't find a setting within the app to customize the alert time. I'd love to see an option to change the alert time, or even just to snooze the current alert for a couple of hours.


It's no secret that tracking progress on a goal you're working toward can provide a boost in motivation. Full is a well-designed app, with a straightforward user experience.

Unfortunately, it's not quite ready for prime time yet. With just a few tweaks to the app, Full would be the ideal app for keeping tabs on your progress, but for now I would wait for another update.
