Nice at first, decided to purchase Pro version to make personal tags and unlock more things, cuz why not. But I have to make a separate account for it, which might not sound too bad, but it is honestly annoying/inconvenient for me. Now the shop is locked, period. Before I could at least purchase a few things, now I can't at all. And I don't really want to make an account for it, so it mostly makes me want a refund/not use the app as much :/ It is an alright time management app, though.

Hello, thank you for the feedback. An account is necessary for data syncing. Data without an account cannot be uploaded to the server and will be lost permanently once you delete the app or change to a new phone. We recommend you to sign up for an account so that you can use the syncing feature to enjoy the app to the fullest. Thank you! :)

I really like the app because it's a cute way to keep track of how long I've been in class or studying! My biggest complaint is that a LOT of the more expensive plants don't have any cosmetic changes as time goes on. Since it takes so many coins, I'd assume that everything about it would be... More, but some of them are honestly more plain than the 300-600 coin ones.

The concept for this app is really cool and I am definitely more productive when using the app. It has decreased my phone usage by a lot. However, the biggest problem I have with it is that almost everything is locked behind a pay wall. Features behind the paywall are: achievements, friends, most analytics of your focus time, creating custom tags so you can accurately categorize your time focused, and the majority of the plants that you unlock with coins, and signing up for an account.
