1. Turn off battery saving mode.
2. Lock the app on the multi-task screen.

Or you can turn on the "Screen Always On" switch in the settings, to avoid background running.

I downloaded this app in hopes that it would help with my bad study habits. I am impressed with the app so far! It has 4 timed intervals and then timed breaks in between each interval which has helped to keep me focused and less distracted! I've only used this app once so far and my only complaint is that during one of the breaks I accidentally closed out my apps on my phone and lost all of the progress that I made so I was not able to finish the 4th interval. Please have it automatically save!

I love the simplicity of this app. My favorite thing about it are the categories for the sessions, such as "study," "work," etc. Other apps allow you to be specific about the exact task you want to finish in one session, but I find that stressful. What we want to work on can change as we're working on it, and this app provides the flexibility for that with its simple categories. I just bought it, so I'm begging you not to add thousands of distracting features! And please don't game-ify it!

Changing my rating from 5 stars down to 3 because I reinstalled the app after a while without it and despite purchasing the pro version back in 2021, the app acts like the free version. I emailed them over a week ago (September 13th, 2022), even sent a follow up email a few days later, and it's been radio silence. I love the app, but this issue is causing me to walk away from it. I hope it's resolved soon.
