This update is all under the hood!
Ratings and Reviews
I really like this app ... but has some fundamental issues
I use this daily and it has been a very positive part of my life.
However, it's a pretty significant oversight that you can't mark the task as completed before time runs out. I realize that you apparently can do it if you go back to the screen with the list and then swipe over, but that is (1) not in keeping with the app being a relatively hands-off program, and (2) the following glitchy issues:
It is very finicky. Every time I pause and try to restart/unpause, it goes to the next task immediately, marking this as incomplete. I've also gone to other programs to complete a task and come back, or turned the screen off and come back, and it skips one or a few tasks while leaving them marked not completed. (Not enough time has elapsed to make this an issue of it proceeding to the next task automatically. Also they're still marked as not completed.)
I look forward to future updates to improve the coding of this app.
(I saw another review that went into some of the same details about the finicky/glitchy issue, and the app developer said something like "it shouldn't be doing that". That may be so, but it's doing the same thing for me, so it's something to look into because it's not user error.)
Developer Response ,
Hello! Thanks for taking the time to explain the issue.
This is not an easy one to fix unfortunately and we are very close to getting it sorted, I promise!
The bug will go away with the next updates ;)
Love it, but
I really wish I could move the order around as I’m in my routine. For example, I have ‘drink water’ in my routine. It’s not detrimental that I drink the water at the exact moment that I have it set in my routine, and I wish I could just hit ‘skip’ on it and come back to it within the routine. Sometimes I meditate before I journal, sometimes after. I hate that I have to lie to the app and say I did it (while waiting for the time to run out and the next task to begin) instead of just making it go away temporarily, but understanding that it has to come back around at a later point in the routine because I haven’t yet completed it. Stop making a liar outta me! 😫😩 (yes you can ‘skip’ it, but when you do that it goes to the very end of the routine. I want to be able to select it myself or check it off myself as done at any given moment during the routine)
For the most part, this app is the best morning routine app that I have found. I love it very much and hope you will consider my suggestion 😊 At the end of my routine, I’m always left trying to remember what lies did I tell the app today and I probably never get it right because I do this every morning and I have a terrible memory. “Did I skip this one today? Or am I remembering yesterday’s skips??”
This app is so helpful and is really keeping me on task. I feel like I’m accomplishing my goals so much more easily. I have more mental space without decision fatigue or overwhelm throughout the day since everything I need and want to do has its own spot in my day now.
I do wish I not have to assign a day for special routines that aren’t regular-like a shortened routine for a special event, emergency or just needing extra sleep. Pretty much every day in my week has a slight difference and I’d love to be able to see my week at a glance with my different routines on each day. I also wish there was some more excitement when the timer goes to the next task. It’d be nice if I could click “done” or “skip” instead of the timer just moving on to the next task. It would be awesome if it played music and went to the next song for each task. I wouldn’t mind if the voice command gave some kind of encouragement along the way too..like “you’re very focused today! Keep going!” Etc.
Even without those, it’s a great app and has made a very big positive difference for me and my family! Thank you!!
