Ratings and Reviews


Please Fix This App

The concept for the functionality is good, but as another reviewer has stated. . . the app crashes randomly. All work is lost and the app no longer functions without uninstalling and then reinstalling. While it may have only cost $4.99, I still expect the app to work as advertised. I purchased this even though the Customer Ratings section states “This application’s summary rating was recently reset.” Not a great sign, but I crossed my fingers and purchased it anyway.

Developers - Please just fix the app or at least post some response that you are aware of and/or working on the crash issue. I’ve already wasted too much time for lost productivity on a project due to this app crashing and losing all of my work. I don’t want to have to request a refund, so please just provide an update on the solution. Thanks.

Developer Response

Hello AnneSchock,
thank you for your feedback.
I am sorry you had many issues with the app. I've just released a new version of it that it is much more stable and I fixed most bugs.
Hopefully that will solve your problems, but in case you'll still find it not working properly please contact me at:
I am even able to help you retrieve your "lost" work. I've done it for a few users already.


I want my money back, you cheat!!!

This app should not have been released as it suffers still from embarrassing flaws making it unusable. My first time using it, the app screen went blank and the only way to recover from that was to delete and reinstall it. Apparently this common among users. The second time, I tried using the Tints and Shades feature, only to find that trying to change a Step amount changed it irriversably to the number 1.

Shame on this developer for selling such a useless product. I would like my money back!

Developer Response

Hello thebigerns, I am sorry you had problems with this app.
However, most of them have been fixed in the following updates and the latest version, now available, is very stable. Please feel free to check it out.
Unfortunately, Apple doesn't allow a refund for purchased apps.
