I like that I can select a time for the push notification(s). I like that I can swipe to the next or previous day or select from a calendar. Would like date to be part of select-all for journaling-copy-paste or add a journaling feature. Another thought....it would be interesting to have a searchable topical cross reference or index. It might take some study to develope. It could also have a reference to the step(s) that apply. As it stands, using it for a daily reflection as intended is perfect.

This app is good for daily reflections. It has a bug in that it will keep the alarm icon always showing in the Android status bar at the top of the Android screen. The only way to remove this annoying icon is to force a stop on the app. I would ask the app author to add an option to enable / disable the alarm icon. As it currently is, I cannot tell if I've set a wake up alarm for myself.

Delighted to find this app as I have been reading "Twenty-Four Hours" for many years of my sobriety. (Alas, my copy of the little black book had become quite ragged with dog ears, paper clips, post-its, obituary clippings of fellow alcoholics, marginal notes and coffee stains.) The app has not disappointed! It is faithful to the book, has an excellent search feature and allows one to save favorite readings. The only addition to this app I would recommend is a notes feature. Mike.
