What does the app do?
The Fabulous Self Care app motivates users to change their habits or behaviour by developing routines. For example, if you want to get into the habit of drinking more water, this habit may be in your morning ritual. In order to develop these new habits, you will receive challenges. These challenges will tell you to complete a habit a certain amount of times in a certain time frame to complete the challenge.
The app has 4 choices: Feel more energised, lose weight, sleep better, and focus and concentrate. Once you've completed a habit, mark it as complete. Each time you mark the “drink water” habit as completed, it will count towards your challenge.
Note: this app has a free trial, but there is a paid subscription to an upgrade that offers more features.
For the complete app description, go to the app website, Google Play or App Store.
This is a review of the premium version, assessed during the free trial. It reverts to the free version after the trial which contains 5 journeys, 37 challenges, and various guided trainings. It was not possible to review all the content.
✔ Uses behavioural psychology principles with the aim of building a daily routine filled with healthy behaviours and habits.
✔ Actively maintained, and the developers seem to be responsive to feedback.
✘ The frequent notifications can get a bit overwhelming and feel like nagging.
✘ You can’t remove a challenge, but this seems to be intentional, as it asks you to commit to checking off a habit.
✘ The user cannot go straight to the free version, they have to use the trial version first, and then unsubscribe manually to avoid being charged. Some users have unintentionally been charged and there are many reports of declined refund requests.
