What's New in Version 2.0.0
A new and improved design, including:

- Pick a date in the past if you’ve already started your smokefree journey
- Better social media sharing, so you can tell your friends and family how you’re doing
Could be better
I have just downloaded the app and was hoping it would have given more help with motivation to quit.
The cost of smoking is only relevant to cigarettes and not tobacco pouches so isn't realistic and totally out. Also it doesn't give much information on how your body is recovering itself since you stopped x amount of hours ago. It would be good if it gave you an oversight of how you are benefiting from not smoking since you quit. And maybe had pictures and stop smoking adverts to help put you off. Considering it's the NHS and the resources they have ... this is a pretty poor attempt in my view.
I downloaded this application to replace the previous NHS StopSmoking app, as it is no longer updated and will stop working with the introduction of iOS11. Specifically, I want to keep the ability to track the cumulative number of days since I quit, which, despite being nearly two years ago, is still a source of encouragement to check every once in a while.
Unfortunately it is not possible to enter a previous date of cessation and the app defaults to today's date, so I guess that's that. A shame.
So can't get accurate count which is very annoying when you've quit at 6pm!
Also the tips are stupid. Go outside for a walk. Erm, I'm staying in so I avoid situations that make me want to smoke so that's rubbish advice.
