The app is very good and the syncing actually works. 4 stars because it is not very good at blocking itself(you can end it yourself unless you have some permanent plan running and put urself on locked mode). If that system is improved(focusme is a good inspiration in that regard) then this app has the potential to become the best blocker on the market.

Solid app - one weakness is they do a very poor job of doing a comprehensive job of blocking adult sites. They don't seem to have anyone keeping a close eye on making sure the websites listed under the "adult" tab actually includes all the relevant sites, particularly the ones that are included in Google searches. But, combined with a "safe" browser (like spin on android) it can be an effective part of a blocking toolkit.
