Timer is buggy

The timer doesn't always notify you it's up for some reason. If you are in the app it generally works fine, but if you are in another application on your iPhone the will sometimes not go off, sometimes will though, its very sporadic. I keep checking my notification settings on my iPhone and they are all on. I do most of my writing on my iPhone so this is really annoying


I loved the book and the app’s “gamefication” concept.
I even paid the $2.99 to use it on my old iPhone.
Unfortunately, however, now that I tried to Restore the purchase on my new IPod touch, I was asked to pay another $2.99 for exactly the same app on the same account. I am sorry, the app is ok, but definitely not worth $6! I tried leaving a comment on the author’s website but there I was required to register and sign up for a membership before I was allowed to post.

After having spent almost an hour being made to run in circles for something that ought to be straightforward and easy, I am livid.

If the author doesn’t fix his “dummy” Restore button in the app very soon, I am seriously tempted to go ahead and leave a one star review for his book as well, given that is where he convinced me to buy the app in the first place.

Needs a serious update

This app is super buggy. The timer doesn't seem to work very well, especially if you pause it. If I discard a sprint before finishing, it doesn't actually let you discard it. You have to save it then delete it. The app feels hastily thrown together. Not really worth $2.99. Not sure how the developer justifies that price point. Hopefully the app gets an overhaul soon.
