Absolutely frustrating every time I use it I faff around with it for about 10 minutes to get it to actually work instead of reading buttons and URLS and then it will either crash/freeze my computer. If you'e been recommended this because of you're AD(H)D I would not recommend, all it will do is demotivate and frustrate you that you will not get any work done. Funnily enough this is the most productive the app has made me since installing it. I've fiddled around with settings, youtube tutorials and it is still as disappointing and painful since opening it.

Its installed I opened a google chrome page assuming that this extension would be in the available at the top of the page, but I don't see it. I can't figure out howbto retrieve it. Also the apps keyboard doenst have good auto spell, it very easy to type typos, and the keys vibrate when you type which is annoying.
