This app is honestly great! It’s what the few good people in the world do, create an app that can honestly make a big difference. I also love how it doesn’t let you hold at night, so people can’t take advantage of the app. This app has really helped me cure my “phone addiction”! I also wanted to say though, my one problem: the gift(the camera lenses) I think the website is a scam. I can’t explain it but whenever I type in my card details and address and etc, once I press the order button, it stops working. I generally think though, that this app is great and it is something that can make a big impacts in people’s lives.

This app has been great for me personally. I use my phone a lot, but the app gives me the motivation to put it down and actually start studying, and it really helps to trigger a nice and focused study session.

The reward system is a really good idea. I’ve read other reviews that have mentioned problems with the rewards, but I have never had any problems - received loads of discounts on stuff. Also really lovely that they’ve partnered with UNICEF to help charity efforts.

I feel that the app is everything that it promises, just use it like you’re supposed to, and you’ll do great!

Great app, maybe change rewards more frequently?

Great fun app and works to make you feel rewarded for staying off your phone. However the store rewards you can exchange your points for can get a bit boring; I rarely ever win anything from scratch cards and most useful ones such as cinema tickets go out of stock extremely quickly and stay like that for a while. Maybe rotate the store rewards up a bit more often ? Other than that i cant say anything bad about the app as it works like its supposed to (for me) and helps put in heavy 10-14hr study sessions per day
