An awkward approach to routines
Fabulous: Daily Motivation taps into the idea that you can do more with your phone than waste time scrolling news feeds and games. They did this with their by habit tracker. You can link those habits to create a routine, which starts at a time you set every day.
Notifications that change your life
Fabulous is made for people that need a push in the right direction for better habits and schedules.
The app is full of beautiful imagery, and it’s more appealing than other habit trackers like TimeTune. It keeps all of your habits and routines in one place -- essential on your journey to a better lifestyle.
Fabulous is designed to link tasks together to optimize your time, but it also is essential to form and stick to positive habits, from healthy morning routines to winding down to get a good nights’ sleep in the evening. The app has suggestions for meditations, exercises, and other elements of your routine. All of its claims are based on scientific data. It can take some time to integrate these suggestions and how to find what you need, though.
While most suggestions are sensible, healthy eating advice it throws your way could prompt or promote a negative attitude towards food. It labels foods like potatoes as bad. The app is built for daily routines, so if you want to form a habit that you don’t carry out daily, the app isn’t flexible enough to implement this.
Where fun visuals and an interesting interface would usually stand to impress, every other feature is a bit lacking. If the app had a different focus, it might work a bit better. However, as it stands, it doesn’t have the tools to keep people engaged and committed.
