Ratings and Reviews
Works perfectly, and is simple (but is it too simple?)
The app works well and does precisely what I need it to do without any issues. I had been looking for an app that does more than just act as a glorified iCal but actually helps me keep on task and not spend an ungodly amount of time on something that should take 1/4 of that time—and Sloth does just that.
Now, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I wish it did more. I get that the app developer is going for ‘simple’ but it would be nice to not only have the time tracker for each task but also have a day planner/itinerary to get a better idea of the time I can allot for each task, given the amount of time I have during the day, when taking into consideration classes, picking up my son, etc. And I know I can use iCal (or those glorified iCals I referenced before), but it really is so much nicer to have everything consolidated and not have to open various apps to get the job done (I know, I know—first world problems).
Regardless, I’m content with the app and it’s already helping. I’m in law school and essentially any task, e.g., reading, outlining, briefing (or lack there of), can take a ridiculous amount of time if you let it, but definitely doesn’t need to—and shouldn’t.
Paid version issue;(
I loved the light version of this and decided to upgrade so that I could utilize the lists for repeating tasks but that is a no-go. The list literally does nothing but has you write down tasks like you would on the lite version but you can't do anything with thet list. You can't move them over and put them on your list of items for that day or do anything except add a projected completion time. It's literally just a list you could write anywhere in a note app or on a scrap of paper. That was the exact reason I spent the extra $3. This app is absolutely. isn't worth the upgrade. I don't even know why they encourage you to upgrade and I regret having spent the money. So tired of apps not working as you expect them to. You don't know how it will work u too you buy it but by then it's too late. The additional features aren't with much of anything.
The Ultimate Procrastination Cure
All other anti-procrastination apps that I've used in the past are now obsolete. Sloth is not a passing fancy. Since its launch, I have upgraded to the paid version and I have not given any thought to the other apps I used to use.
It keeps me focused and, with the inclusion of nag alarms, it keeps you on track throughout your work day. Everything works efficiently. The developers have favored swipes and gestures which are simple and intuitive and quick – as opposed to cluttering the app with buttons or useless graphics.
Pretty much captured the sweet spot.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
