I needed an app that would record slips, so this is great. However, I too have jumbled screens, words printed on top of each other, & sections I can't reach. Also, I can't find where to enter the price of my cigarettes to calculate savings. It seems to be going on $10 per pack. Not far off, but I'd like to adjust it.

Tips and reminders are helpful throughout the day. Only issue is checking in; app prompts me to enter number of cigarettes smoked since last check in. I haven't smoked a single cigarette, mark "Happy" or "Relaxed", and cravings are 0. App gives me a "slip-up" EVERY TIME. Try to leave field blank? App crashes. Whole experience makes me want a cigarette. Otherwise, solid app. Would give more stars but the tracking of non-existant slip-ups is frustrating. Reinstalling doesn't fix the issue, either.

I did not slip and the app said I slipped. It removed my progress with no way to amnend it. I started my quit before the app & it does not count that progress. It gives affirmations & suggestions that are not helpful & without the ability to toggle to a next suggestion. It's helpful if you start this before you quit and never press a button my mistake. Also if you have the patience for hearing the same suggestion to workout every day. Its betterthan nothing unless you press a wrong button.
