Ratings and Reviews
This app definitely works
I had a particular interest in this app because I travel extensively around the world. I saw some negative reviews, but decided it was worth $3 to try it out. Anything to help my jetlag really. What I realized, and now I can understand many of the reviews, is that it's simply not that easy to follow. But that's not the app's fault...the little things it says to do are the things you need to do to reduce the effects of jetlag. The second time I used the app, I tried hard to follow the actions, and it worked better when I did. The app never claimed to be easy! So, the app works, it's just that you have to try hard. Also, no problems with notifications, and the melatonin guide worked too. That's another thing...TAKE MELATONIN. It's safe and it works.
Not useful for real people
I should have read the reviews before spending money on this App. The App. does not take into consideration the fact that going to bed at 8am at my destination is not an option.
I was hoping for an updated version of Virgin's Jet Lag Fighter which was actually useful for travelers but suffered from a few issues related to lack of instructions about how to use on the actual travel day. That app appears to have vanished and the similar ones available, like this one, are no where near as practical.
I had low expectations for this app, but in the end it definitely helped cut down my jet lag on a trip from Miami to Barcelona. Easy to use and set up, you just have to TRY to keep up with the things you're supposed to do (which isn't always easy). It didn't cure me or anything, but it worked well enough that I could enjoy the trip better.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
