The Habit Tracking App That Keeps Me Motivated ♡ Streaks App Review

I came across this app by accident. I wasn’t looking for a new way to track my habits or even create new and better habits, but finding this app was such a happy accident.

I’ve tracked my habits on and off for many years now. Habit tracking has motivated me and kept me going through many hard parts of my life. But my issue with habit tracking is that it always felt like an extra task that I had to go out of my way to complete. This is why I’m grateful for my happy accident with the Streaks app.

While watching a YouTube video about the best apps for an Apple Watch, I heard about Streaks. I can’t remember which Youtuber it was but they were saying about how easy it is to use and how it being on your Apple Watch just makes habit tracking so simple.
