Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - Calvin Coolidge

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.
“That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but that our power to do has increased.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

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!!!!
Got this when it was in a free promo period and it's a good app for setting goals and creating habits. The only two features I wish it had are 1) multiple alarm options for tasks you want to complete more than once per day and 2) a built-in timer to let you know when you've completed tasks on which you'd like to spend a minimum amount of time. If it were not free at the time of download, it would be a difficult choice between this and Productivity.
I'm using this to help me track progress in a few personal areas, but it looks like it will also be good for helping my kids to pace themselves in our home schooling. It is easy to just let things slide by while focusing on one area, but Persistence keeps everything in view to prevent forgetting.
