Somehow, a simple concept that's effectively just a fancy stopwatch has helped immensely with my studying, reading, writing, and productivity in general. This app helps motivate me to a degree I haven't had in ages. It's extemely nice being able to go back and see detailed stats of what I did. An easy 5 stars.

I have a major issue in concentrating. I get distracted easily and am often times completely unmotivated. With this, I have to say that this app is oddly helpful. It's rewarding to see the trees pop up so I guess it works, at least for me. Not being able to use the phone or else the tree dies is absolutely brilliant. I can sit on my phone all day but this makes me put it down and try to focus.

-1 It's messed up that we have to buy the app again if we switch from iphone to Android and vice-versa. Especially since after I purchase the app, you can just sync the previous account. If you can sync the previous account anyway, why not just do that from the start instead of making us pay for it twice? It's upsetting. However, I do love the concept of the app, so it still gets a 4. I hope others are aware, though, before they make the purchase.
