It's great. The only thing is if it had a "I just smoked button" in the best times section, not on the main (home) page because it might be tempting to give in and smoke. But definitely if you put it in the section where the trophies are, it'd be a good way to motivate to do better next time because you can see how well you've done in the past. And it would be more intuitive than having to go into profile settings and starting your quit date/time over again.

This app is a great way to keep track of your health and other statistics associated with quitting smoking. Unfortunately I find the colour schemes triggering. Most of them remind me of the old coloured cigarette packets. The interface also seems rather outdated given the ease of use of some other apps out there. There is potential to be a high 4s app but like most things, the Australian Government don't really care.

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.
