Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful reminder in the evening
I'm grateful for this app and its ability remind me at 4:55 to plan for my evening. It helps to keep me focused and counting my blessings. If I don't want to be "outted" I turn off the notifications.
I also really like the ability to forward text of the main body or email the whole page. If I want to send the whole page as a text I can always select all and copy.
I appreciate the day tracker and the relapse planner. I need to complete that but I'm glad it's there. And the SOS button, while I've not yet had to use it, feels like it could be a life saver.
This was really a waste of money, so little to it. I can't understand how something like this could be released for any reason other than to exploit those suffering souls that are desperate for sobriety. Content is very much geared to newcomers - trust me don't waste your money on this. All I got from my purchase was a resentment for being ripped off.
