I must agree, this is exactly what I was looking for. Yes there are still a few bugs... Updating home screen widget doesn't always work. Not do notifications. My workaround is to see what the time interval is in the morning, and set a timer. As an enhancement request it might be nice to have a more precise value on the status page, like down to the seconds instead rounded to minutes. I am really looking forward to the paid version so I can do away with the ads.

So far, I have been able to keep track of how much and how often I smoke, which is what I needed. I like the timer too. As far as the settings go... if you setup your goals incorrectly, then try to edit the info on a later date, it starts your progress all over, and you're back to day 1! It didn't erase my previous data, but what's the point if it doesn't count it towards your ACTUAL progress. ??? Doesn't make much sense to not be able to edit setup info. Oh, and the ads... ugh.

All in all, I'm thankful for this app. It's the only thing since Quest cigarettes (anyone remember those?) that has ever really helped me. I love that it allows for either fully quitting or simply reducing how much you smoke. The interface does have a learning curve, but once you get it, it's very helpful. Changing your program does start you back at day one, but if you do it in the middle of the day, it will at least save how many cigarettes you already logged that day. If/when you do that, you can always reset the program to fewer days while you're at it, so you end up quitting by the desired date. You will lose progress history from your previous settings, but it doesn't have to take you any longer to quit/reduce, and you won't be missing any of that day's cigarette count. The app also includes editing options for your history, in case you accidentally tap the smoke button or forgot to do so for one. Unfortunately, despite the description stating the latest update included a notifications bugfix, I'm having the same problem others have mentioned with notifications. They don't push, they don't use the tone I set. I was hoping to use notifications with a defined notification tone to help make smoking more Pavlovian and less urge-based. I've set everything I can think of on my phone and in the app to allow the notifications and make them work, to no avail. More stars if they really, truly, and fully fix it.
