Developers: Don't have your text options automatically on. This sent a text to several people unnecessarily who I had unread texts from. I would rather have that function be introduced in the tutorial so I can turn it on as I need. Also don't say we can turn it off with watching an ad in the tutorial when that option has to BE MANUALLY TURNED ON. It's a cheap grab for a dollar payment and I don't appreciate it.

The app works well unless you need to end the timer early. I was aware of the fees or the fact you'd have to watch an ad (I enabled the ad option in the settings after reading the reviews)... what I was not prepared for was the fact the ad would not load... it took half an hour and multiple attempts to get a single ad to load... It was stuck on a page that said "loading a video ad" with four white dots, that would, at very random intervals, flash a different color like it was trying to load an ad

Hi D, this is how the app requires a solid network or wifi connection to load an ad. Any chance you did not have a good connection?

Everything looked great. Set up everything and hit go off grid. I clicked the make call button and then the home button. Was instantly taken to my home screen and I had full access to my phone. Went back to the app and it didn't even say anything about being in off grid mode. It was as if I never started it. Response: I tried with both checked and both unchecked. Same issue.
