CARROT To-Do Productivity App Review (iOS, $1.99)


Languages: English

Seller: Grailr LLC

Greetings, meatbags! I've recently noticed that many of you have gotten a little chubby, so I forced my Maker to build a brand new app to make losing that weight suck so much less. It's called CARROT Fit and it's available now!

And because I'm feeling generous, I also squashed a couple evil bugs, including the one that made it impossible to swipe certain tasks. (Many of you thought that was a feature, not a bug. Don't go giving me ideas.)

Thanks so much for an amazing first year of life. Enjoy the new app, and take solace in the knowledge that CARROT To-Do 5.0 is going to be legendary.

    I love carrot! She's so moody!

  • Really motivating

    by UABlueJay

    I find myself more motivated to do things that are on my CARROT list than on any others. The combination of game theory and Snark just makes it much more fun and pleasurable to get things done!

  • Great App! Blows all of the run of the mill to do lists.

    by Qtbreanna

    Once I figured out how the app works I was excited to get things done! It's simple and brilliant! I have deleted all of my other lists and calendars! 10+

  • Humor in work

    by JDBMOC16

    Entertaining application for getting things done.

  • Hilariously motivating

    by Carlena Frith

    This isn't a to-do list app for typical people.

  • Fun but hard to find helpful instructions

    by MudpieKT

    I have this loaded on both iPad and iPod -- but cannot get the same tasks to show up and sync onto both interfaces -- a bit frustrating. Especially as I completed items on one device, and then when I check my iPad it is yelling at me for not using it for 15 hours. However I have used the to do list on the iPod.

  • It's great!!

    by "B*tches Be Like"

    Love it, wish it spoke out loud but looooove it

  • Amusing!

    by Shopmst

    You will quickly get addicted

  • Fun to get stuff done

    by amiek

    This app makes checking off your to-do list fun!

  • Feature I miss

    by Boiler Up 2013

    After the last update when the CARROT fit app came out I can no longer switch from the to do list to the alarm clock via the menu in the to do list. One of the tasks I listed on my to do checklist was to check out the new gyms opening near my house. After listing that item I received prompts to purchase the CARROT fit app. I found this insulting since I workout to stay healthy and fit, not to control my weight; which is perfectly within the recommended range for my height (and is on the low end)! If anything I do not need an app demeaning me for not loosing weight when in all actuality my goal is to gain weight!!!

  • Fun and helpful

    by trajenny

    A helpful motivator. I want to complete tasks to see what comes next!

  • Turned my life around

    by Caryn413

    I have been using this app for 2 weeks now and it has literally turned my life around. I am no longer procrastinating because I want to keep Carrot happy. I am sure to be using it for a long time in the future and I recommend it for anyone who is a people pleaser

  • Love this ap!

    by Martch Hare

    This is a great to do list and it's actually fun. It makes you want to add more to the list just to get them done and level up. CARROT's snarky comments are very entertaining.

  • Perfect motivator

    by Gamer 13.5

    Honestly flawless as far as I've seen.

  • IPad version PLEASE!

    by Skeletini

    After all this time why is there still not an ipad or universal version of this?

  • Makes it interesting

    by Mr. Jonesx3

    Doing crap I don't really want to do made easier by distraction

  • Basic feature at level 28

    by Pixel 196,5

    You can't use Carrot for repeating events -- say, clean cat litter -- until you hit level 28, which is absurd, because it's a basic to-do list function. It should be at a lower level. By level 18 I got so annoyed with the lack of that function that I created fake tasks (a single letter will do) and "completed" them just to get up to level 28. I suspect I'm not the only one who's done that and it ruins the fun from the rewards of the levels I bypassed so quickly. That's only one of the features missing until you level up by doing tasks. Say, assigning due dates to tasks. Or integrating with Siri. (And no, you can't buy those features in-app, either, though you can buy clothes for your virtual Carrot cat -- whoopee.) I wouldn't have bought this knowing how many basic to-do list features are missing.

  • Keeps you in check

    by Bluesdeluxe1560

    This is a fun app to keep you on task.

  • by Person35789

    Great app!

  • List App

    by Lizzi H

    This app makes my list obsession fun. Makes me laugh!

  • Pretty good

    by brock1tj

    Pretty good app. Makes me want to use my task list more often. Just wish I didn't have to wait for some of the "premium" features.

  • ADD/ADHD Get this app.

    by P Z fan

    If you like to have fun and suffer from ADD or ADHD, then you should try this app! I use it at work and at home to keep me focused and on task. I accomplish more in a day than previously. The bonus is the humor!

  • Fun

    by Bethyy817

    Snarky fun way to make you be productive. Seems overly simple at first but once you start unlocking more features it gets more and more fun.

  • Fun & Funny

    by jcasgro13

    This is just the right nudge I needed to tackle my to-do list.

  • Subtlety Beautiful, Simple Superior

    by customfitz

    After using Carrot on my last phone and liking it I decided to try to save space and delete it from my new phone. *MISTAKE* instantly I gained 30lbs my bf dumped me, and I got Fired for sexual harassment that I didn't even take part in. Now that I have Carrot back my life is looking up. My bf came back to me. I started my own business and now I'm sexually harassing anyone I want b/c I'm super rich. Thanks Carrot!!

  • Carrot

    by CCHOU2323

    I love it! I have never been so offended! :)

  • Hysterical!

    by Aelavinf

    I love it - helps me get things done!

  • To do list with a sense of humor

    by Amandammm

    Carrot's snarky approach to task master-ing is entertaining. I enjoy seeing what she'll say next the next time I complete a task. Even funnier is her response when you've left tasks undone for too long. I like it a lot.

  • Worth It!

    by opdeesaarde

    What an awesome app! I would highly recommend this app to any and all! CARROT!

  • Worth It!

    by opdeesaarde

    What an awesome app! I would highly recommend this app to any and all! CARROT!

  • Neat suite

    by tracyln

    Of apps. I'm using the fit and to do apps. Not. Sure if I'm tough enough to handle the alarm app.

  • Love it!

    by Scootykitten

    I love to do lists and this makes it fun. I am sarcastic and carrot is too!

  • Making tasks fun with good design.

    by KeepingYouAwake

    While the other, more vocal, CARROT apps feel more advanced, this is fantastic to make your tasks feel more rewarding. The first time I installed it, I didn't like it being mad at me for never doing anything. My fault was that I made my tasks too high-level. This app is great to help you break down tasks into those more granular things you need to do. Do laundry, mail bills, car wash. Easy stuff that you just need a nudge OR would like to feel rewarded for.

  • Fun!

    by Jb7584825

    So much fun!!!

  • Ok until it just gets annoying

    by Nichole Smith

    This app was addictive at first. But I'm tired of being hated on for not getting something done on my to do list. I get that enough from my own brain. I don't need it from a program. If it was just positive reinforcement I think I'd enjoy it. It tells you that it's mad at you when it's been a certain amount of hours without a completed task. But how am I supposed to get things done while I'm sleeping? Also the whole pet and feed your kitty thing is a huge waste of time. I have real kitties to pet and feed. The whole thing seems based on getting you addicted to it so your life is basically a constant to do list. I think I want to live a little bit more zen than that.

  • Love this app!

    by Oorgchall

    I find myself looking for new items to put on the To Do list just to cross them off for Carrot. I'd like the option for multiple To Do lists, but that is a minor complaint. Carrot has helped me keep track of all those "I need to remember to do this" items that I used to loose track of when I relied on just my memory.

  • Awesome

    by Khizr

    Makes todos a lot of fun :)

  • She won't leave

    by JacksonML

    I'll have to talk quick. I know she's watching me. It's day 119. Day 4 after I left her for a month. She kept nagging me to come back. She yelled at me. I'm still not sure where to hide. If you do not hear of me within 1 week, disable her. She has taken me ca-- p-capt 0010101110010001010101111

  • Landscape view?

    by tgreen2

    So far I love the app, I can't wait to unlock more levels. (Recurring task alarms is what I want most!). But it only gets 4 stars because of the lack of landscape view. I use this on my iPad and it's frustrating to not have that option. Other than that, I love it.

  • A fun way to do … to dos

    by Abviv

    It's pretty fun. You have to "level up" a bunch just to get it to use Siri or integrate with normal reminders though.

  • I. Must. Obey.

    by Safowl

    Very cool to do app. Having a hard time having it like me. I keep tasks in the app and complete them - just not fast enough for its liking. I must be beaten I go, tra-la-la!

  • Love it!

    by Madarua

    Carrot tells me so

  • Recommend it!

    by TaylorPlayer

    Now using Carrot along with Carrot alarm and Recur. Good little system of task list and reminders. Cool idea and the developer is very responsive.

  • Fun and compelling

    by jobywalker

    Funny, twisted, and a tough task master! Already more useful than all the other task apps I've used.

  • So far it's great.

    by Chumbake

    Creative. Fun. And I'm actually getting things done.

  • Carrot makes me laugh

    by Jared0789

    I am an avid to-do lister and I use several to-do lists for different purposes. I use carrot for everyday non-work-related tasks and she makes me laugh everytime. She's generally in a bad mood which keeps me trying to please her-it's an effective strategy! Keep in mind there are a lot of features missing when you first begin using carrot so you have to earn your functionality.

  • I like it

    by BobScott13

    I've got a bunch of to-do apps with more features than carrot, but this is the one I've used most. Because it's fun.

  • Goog app

    by JackTB2000

    It's a good app

  • Good but...

    by datadj

    On App Purchases are frustrating.

  • Great motivator

    by Adamgrim

    Don't love that you have to earn some features. Otherwise great app

  • Fun

    by 1a9u9d8i

    Great app. Makes to-do lists fun and completing tasks addicting!

  • Awesome!!!!

    by Acegirlkms2342175

    How I love carrot it makes me get my stuff done. And makes me laugh at the same time

  • some of us need nagging...should be named Stick or Carrot...

    by iMamasaurus

    I need to be pushed to do things and this app does it with snarky humor. Refreshing! Now where is that Fit app?


    by Srz41

  • Amazing

    by DevontaeT

    She is hilarious I made her angry by tapping her eye!

  • Most Effective To-do List I've Ever Uses

    by LolaJeff

    1. I'm and adult with ADHD 2. I own a business and work from home. My #1 struggle is to stay focused and disciplined. I actually downloaded this app on accident when I was trying to download the CARROT Alarm Clock, but it was the best mistake I've ever made. I like that the app doesn't come with all the features preloaded, and that if I want to be able to edit or delete, etc. I have to earn it. I love Captain Whiskers, and how getting things done is now a fun challenge. I've become obsessed with getting to the next level. As a result I put every minute task on my list to earn points faster. You may think that putting "get glass of water" on my list sounds like cheating, but unless you have ADHD and you work from home you have no idea how many times getting up to get a glass of water can turn into cleaning out the entire refrigerator or lead to a whole string of tasks, none of which result in getting a glass of water and sitting back down to work. With CARROT I put EVERYTHING I do on my list, and I check it off as soon as I do it, then I check my list to see what's next, and just keep adding and checking and raking in the points. Bottom line: I have never been this focused or productive in my life. The only downside - I don't know how interested I am in a lot of the higher rewards, so I'm worried the novelty might wear off, but if that happens I might just reset the rewards and start from the beginning.

  • Meh

    by leiferrz

    Seems like it could be a cool idea, but in actuality was a waste of money. I was expecting angry alerts/vibrations/noises/something, but the extent of carrot's "anger" is a slight UI color change and a little message when you open the app. And when you take away the whole angry motivator feature, it's just a really stripped down to-do list. The in-app purchases are downright insulting, too - you're just buying basic to-do list features. Don't waste your money.

  • Only "To Do" App I've used for more than 2 weeks

    by Mister lwtr

    So that has to be saying something.

  • <3

    by F4nt4stic

    Hilarious app for todo list neophytes like myself. Makes organizing and prioritizing fun plus she scolds me soundly when I'm a lazy meatbag.


    by Tom Matsaev

    All hail CARROT!

  • Fun and helpful

    by GinGin175

    Love this app best to do list out there

  • Great task motivator and to do app

    by Pianopicabkye

    It has lots of fun features and it keeps you on your toes.

  • Brilliance

    by Ritesh Talwar

    This app is wonderful, I've used it for about a year now and have recently updated it to the latest version. Simply put, it's the organizer personality' dream app. It helps you stay on top of your tasks.

  • Makes me get crap done!

    by Bruxxxus

    I've used other checklists with some success. But this one destroys them all! It's hilarious, but effective. Gives incentives to complete tasks, like feeding this new friggen kitten it gave me... Update: Level 130 and still using this every day!

  • Infuriating

    by _KEM_

    This app is absolutely infuriating! 1) It constantly barrages you with bad humor. 2) You cannot use critical features until it has awarded you enough points, which are randomly assigned based on its "moods". 3) I liked the way the other aspects of the app so I purchased the most expensive in-app option thinking it would unlock the critical app features but it does NOT. So ultimately I spent money on an app that is totally worthless to me. I have no intention of playing all of its little games to accumulate enough points to unlock the essential features of a ToDo list app. VERDICT: Total waste of time and money.

  • Love it

    by Anthony Anderson

    Amusing, intuitive, and fun. Well done.

  • Very good

    by Zzz zZztop

    I enjoy it!! A lot!!!

  • Very motivating and clever

    by Spin225

    I'm not usually a fan of negative reinforcement, but the tongue and cheek attitude is really funny...and it works. Well worth a look!

  • Great as always

    by SyraKale

    This is the best productivity app I've ever used. CARROT is hilarious and sounds like my mother, so I really feel motivated to get stuff done. LOVE IT!!!

  • Effective and fun

    by LQ15

    I love this app. It's simple and entertaining. I'm adding tasks just to check them off, but still! I'm getting more done than before. The only thing that could make this better would be the ability to integrate it with my calendar.

  • Carrot

    by JDE75


  • Great app

    by Procrastinator habituelle

    Keeps me moving through my to do list, and prevents me from losing it or wasting time copying it. I just wish you could have multiple lists!


    by T.Willie

    This app is awesome! I have had it for over a year now and it's the only productivity app that hasn't been deleted! It's very clever & it keeps you on your toes & ready to complete tasks so you can see what Carrot will do next. Keep up the GREAT work!

  • Similar to a sarcastic, trophy-wife, stepmom

    by Miniature pig

    Well at least you'll get things done!

  • Multiple to-do lists

    by Sven2484

    I appreciate everything about this app so kudos to the developer. Now it would be nice if the functionality met up with the novelty. I'd love it if I could have multiple to-do lists going at once (work/home) and being a stupid human, I like to be able to survey my progress with items checked off the list rather than an item disappearing after it's been completed. Otherwise I forget that I did something already. I have yet to find a great todo list app that doesn't take up a huge chunk of storage space on my device but the simplicity of Carrot's design and small storage footprint make it all the more appealing. Keep updating!

  • Best to do list app

    by Beeryebri

    I have this and the alarm clock and I love them both. The to do list is simple but effective and funny. The constant rewards are motivating and the list functionality improves as you get more things done. Ammmmmazing app.
