Don't update unless you want ads.
What's with all the new ads they put in with this update? Makes the app look unprofessional and obstructs the interface when trying to adjust the times. Don't be fooled by the screenshots where they are magically left out. Please remove. If it's money you need, I'd rather pay for a quality and professional app rather than have to work around the eyesores that flash on the screen in an attempt to give me an epileptic seizure. Apple watch support wouldn't hurt either. I was very happy with this app prior to this latest update.
I loved the app and used it everyday but the latest update adds very obtrusive ads that cover the screen and overlap the data. There does not seem to be a way to disable them. I want the developers to make money but these ads make the app unusable. I would gladly pay for a version of the app that was optimized for iPhone 6, but now it's the same app but worse because of the glaring ads. I will have to look for a new app.
Do not update.
I feel bad giving this app 2 stars, because it had worked for me for a while. Now, since the latest update, there are horrible ads for Google on the bottom of the screen. Maybe they should offer a paid version without the ads.
Also, if you use the zoom feature in iOS, it is unstable while using this app.
