Minor bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
Needs work! Not enough features
Giving it 2 stars. Here’s why. I found it difficult to create and edit the workouts ie. Circuit training with 1 minute rest tomorrow periods in between. Also the audio didn’t work to alert me when the next interval was starting/ending. You can’t skip ahead to the next interval if you want to start in the middle. Lastly it randomly stops playing and didn’t save the workout ☹️
I got to use app for a few days and I gotta tell you I'm pretty disappointed that this is what I get for the 4 dollar purchase of the Pro version. First of all, once you launch the chronic app the watch automatically stops the workout running in the Workout app. So there's no way to actually get to track the workout if I choose the use the Chronic timer. Now, while you're running a timer in the Chronic app and you put your hand down you no longer get that nice 3 second Haptic notification at the end of the timer. The timer counts down without actually giving a notification. You have to put your hand up to check on the counter. That makes the timer absolutely worthless. On top of all that, the layout for the phone app is very primitive. With apps like Tabata and other top notch timers out there that cost a fraction of the price of this app, it makes no sense how this app is charging 4 dollars just to set up a circuit AND still have to see ads on there!
I generally have no problems for paying for apps. I know these apps take lots of time from developers to create, troubleshoot, and update for OS changes and that time is not free of course. I didn't hesitate buying it once it was explained to me that it would probably do what I need it to do. But after using it I honestly feel ripped off that this is what I paid for.
The 1 star goes for the outstanding customer support I got from the creator of the app. Unfortunately, the app itself doesn’t deserve any.
Great Interval Timer
I have downloaded multiple interval timers and this is one of the best. It is extremely easy to setup and I really like the big number so I can read it even without wearing my glasses. I practice Yoga on a regular basis and this app is very helpful when creating routines with multiple asanas. I have routines with over 100 asanas and the app works perfectly. This is my new favorite app when it comes to exercise. Currently, I am using it for my yoga, meditation, HIIT, among many others and it works great.
Most importantly, I have been searching for a native interval app for my Watch. I have downloaded mostly all of then and this one is very close to my all my needs. There have been some minor issues but the developer has been working intensively to finding the right fix. I have never obtained such a great support like the one I am getting from Mr. Ace. He has been very responsive by answering emails and phone calls.
I am looking forward to future updates. Keep the good work!
