Great app and support!

The app team got back to me pretty much right away with my problem! Great customer support. And I do love the app. The hour badges are fun to get; it is an incentive to get outside more with the little one!
I use this to keep track and love the idea. But with the latest update, I can’t seem to put in hours for Friday & Saturday. I will keep using it the best I can but please fix!

Please contact us for assistance at - you should be able to put in any hours you need to on the calendar view ‘unless’ you’ve already reset your hours for the year. We are happy to help so please reach out!

Doesn't accurately track

This is a great idea in theory, but the app is proving to be very buggy.

It seems there is a big issue with exiting the app and coming back to it, whether that's by hitting my home button or even pulling down my notifications bar. I've had it stop tracking and reset to zero. But most often it artificially inflates the time. Just yesterday with each time I pulled my notifications bar down I watched the time jump from 20 minutes to over 7 hours of time.

Disappointed to have bought this and have it not work. Was so excited to join the challenge and have an easy way to keep track of our time.

Thank you for the review. Everything was running perfect until a recent update we made which introduced a bug. That has been remedied and is currently just waiting for Apple to publish the fix. Everything should be great in the next day or two once it’s re-published and you update. Apologies for the inconvenience!

Hit or miss.

My wife is in to the 1000 hours thing for our kids and wanted me to help her with tracking the kids time this year. 2 issues - can’t sync her phone and mine so possible duplication or missing time. However the main issue is that the app works great on her phone, but crashes in about 30 seconds on mine no matter what I try. I have rebooted the phone, made sure I had latest IOS updates, deleted and reinstalled. Clearly the app is very buggy! Much safer bet to just use a basic timer and a piece of paper to track your time!
