It's a nice looking app, and it's got a lot of information. It also has a timer indicating how long since i've had a smoke, and how much i've saved, but it lacks an important feature/option. There's no way to record if, and when i had a smoke, so how can it know what my progress if i can't uodate it? I hope the new version coming next year is more functional, and includes the ability to keep track of our progress, and record when we smoke, maybe recod what we're doing & why we had a smoke.

Thanks to this app I was able to go COLD TURKEY & quit smoking back in June 2015 AND STAY QUIT! I really love that I can still keep looking at this app in those rare times when I feel an urge to smoke but once it clocked 999 days the widget stopped counting and the various displays in app stuffed up 😞 I'm sure you're aware that smoking is an addiction and as with any other addiction we are always vulnerable to relapse. Please fix this!

Just starting out on my quit journey - it is inevitable that I will slip up at some point. How can this be recorded in the app? I have found no way to update ACTUAL progress - just a clock the counts from the time yoy select 'Quit Now'. Also, the 'distract me' function consistently crashes the app on the second go, every time. Very disappointing app especially given it's government sponsorship.
