I'm surprised to say that this program is actually effective. If you have issues with self-regulation this app will likely help you stay focused during study sessions. If you accept an incoming call while studying, Study Buddy automatically records how long you were away from studying; this was particularly helpful for me. Generally speaking, the app offers a method for the user to structure a study regimen and stick to it.
There is only one Con that I've identified: While it will let you play the iPod in the background, it will not allow you to play Pandora. If you don't study with music then this is not of any concern to you. Basically, Study Buddy records any app running simultaneously as a distraction. For whatever reason, the iPod app will not interfere with it.
I highly recommend this app.
Great app but room for improvement
I like this app a lot it really helps me stay on track. My main complaint though is that when you try to look things up in either the dictionary or online the app treats that as a study break. I also have not seen any motivational study quotes as indicated on the app description. Otherwise this app is great and I would definitely recommend it.
They shouldn't penalize you for using other apps while studying. I use a dictionary application on my phone, while studying and every time I switch from this app to the dictionary, I get hit with a "break session" = /
Please create an option to have the app run in the background w/o adding a break session to your records. I will gladly edit by rating to 5 stars if this option becomes available.
