Nice and simple app that offers project/ todo list with integrated pomodoro timer and calendar. I really like it's cross-conpatibility of the app between device types and OS, and added ability to use as a browser plugin. I also like the ability to block apps while using it. There one thing I would change would be to add the ability to integrate and/or synch with apps such as ToDooist/MS Todo/Trello, Outlook mail/calendar, and/or Google mail/calendar. That would expand it's greatness. Great app!

I really like this for my ADHD. It's well worth the flat price to get all the features, and while it's not 100% polished, it has a lot of features other things don't. My main suggestion/request would be that if you have a daily repeat but you didn't get it done, having an option for dismissing it that doesn't mark it as complete. Also, an option for moving one instance in a repeating series.

There are some serious issues with this app. The work session stops randomly in between. It shows that the session has been completed even though it is still running. Secondly the notifications does not seem to work properly. I'm not notified when a session is completed sometimes. The notification sound does not beep. I had contacted the customer care and their solutions does not seem to work. Highly disappointed with the premium version. I will move to another app now..

Hi Mathew, We are very very sorry for the issues you are facing. Honestly, this doesn't happen usually and these issues are mostly device level and get fixed by adjusting the related settings. If you allow us, we really want to try one more time and fix the problems you are facing, we do not want you to leave. Sorry.
