So yes! This app is awesome! But I do have one bug that has been happening for a couple weeks now.. So every single time I press the Low Setting (which equals 1:00) It always adds 8 more seconds to the 1 minute and it makes it 1:08 which is kind of annoying.. But this app is awesome because it gives kids a fun way to brush their teeth and it contains no ads!

It no longer works. After contacting the developer a few times, I've gotten no response. I would avoid this app. It's no longer being updated. Glitchy, disappointed it used to work fairly well. Kept track of my son's progress and streak for consecutive days brushed. Updated the app and lost everything. Now it doesn't keep track of his consecutive days brushed anymore.

Update (original review below): After a year of running fine, twice in the past two weeks this app has stopped working. My kids were distressed about losing their progress but we are giving it another shot. I will leave my original star rating but this seriously undermines this app's utility. Originally I wrote: Overall, pretty great. Doesnt always pick up the toothbrush bluetooth right away and there are a few other things that would make it better. However, my kids and I like it a lot.
