This app is amazing. I've tried a lot of different focus apps, trying to find what's right for me and this won. There are so many features that this app has & most of it is free except for some color themes & a couple more advanced options. There's a to-do list that is really helpful & you can even put your tasks in order of priority. There aren't any ads & it's a simple yet effective design. You can set the timer to pomodoro or stopwatch which was really helpful for me. I highly recommend!

The app is almost perfect. But the sub tasks and comments are not regarded in the history section. Also, task names should be like labels by which you can sort in history section. I would also like a more elaborate way to choose what happens when you say, pause a running task. Maybe it should discard the pause if it's less than a minute; otherwise, it should just start a new run for each pause. It would also be nice to include seconds along with hours and minutes to prevent certain anomalies.

I Like the app. But there is one thing that bothers me since the last couple updates. I use a Pixel phone and when the timer is running, it makes the screen flicker. The screen is trying to settle but the app wakes it up again. I tried with always on display option ON and OFF. The flickering is distracting. I can turn my phone over but I do like to keep the phone face up; plus doing so turns off notifications. I do also miss the Pause feature. A fix would be appreciated.
