Ratings and Reviews
I’m extremely grateful for this tool at this moment in time. After getting COVID19 6 weeks ago and suffering from major fatigue for 14 days while being an athlete and coaching NBA athletes to be their best in mind and body I was struggling with my lack of stamina as I’m known to be the guy in the room that never gets tired. After a few friends of mine getting Covid19 and developing pneumonia because they pushed it during their training after being symptom free, I knew I had to slow down and modify what’s possible right now.
Your app has given me great hope that I can still challenge myself right now to build my energy and stamina but not do any potential damage. Not only that, but as a scuba diver and lover of the ocean now I’m thinking and visualizing my first free dive and even first spear fishing trip with my friend that recommended this app to me. Grateful for the gift you’ve given me through your app, the gift of energy, stamina, and vision. Cheers with water, Coach Adam Cobb
UPDATE: The developer contacted me in a very timely manner and helped me resolve the issue. Which was that the ringer on the left side of the phone was in the silent position. Now I have the voice and will update the rating to 5 stars as I find the app very useful. I would love to see an upgrade at some point that will allow to hear the app’s voice even with the ringer in silent position though, as I don’t want to be interrupted by any phone calls during my training! Thanks for taking this request into account.
Original review: 3 stars - the app appears to be completely silent, although I set a voice and beeping in Settings. It is difficult to watch the time during all the training and I want to make sure I have the voice activated. I already rebooted my phone and did everything I could to ensure it’s working, but no success. And I can’t find how to contact developer with this questions. Thanks for looking into it.

Thanks for the review! In the latest version (1.9.8) the app's voice should work even with the ringer in silent position.
Solid for what it does
Use this app consistently. Developer is really responsive which I appreciate. Got me to 4 minute hoods, thanks!!
Takes out the guesswork from creating tables, and lets you focus on technique instead of watching a timer. There are, however, a few features that I think would be pretty obvious inclusions in a paid (premium) app.
Would be nice if it helped you decide when to generate new tables, and allowed you to rate and makes notes about each session (how difficult did you find it, did you master a technique, etc). A history graph would be nice too, along with an export functionality.
Also it’s weird that it doesn’t work with the silent switch on and the display off. For instance, my metronome app plays sound regardless of the state of the silent switch or display. Seems like this would be the obvious thing to do, as when you start a session, you are indicating that you want that activity happening for the next ~20 minutes—the app could infer that it’s okay if it makes noise.
Finally I dive to get away from the noise of society and go to a place of focus and mindfulness—being nagged every time to “SHOW THE WOLE WORLD” my dive practice is antithetical to the way I experiencing diving. Please let me switch this feature off!
Developer Response ,
Hey, thanks for the review. That's a super valuable input for me. Currently, I'm working on some big changes, but as soon as they're done, I'll add a possibility to rate a session and add a note. I'll also make it possible to disable the sharing feature. Can you please contact me by email (About -> Contact) and I'll give you more info about why the app doesn't work when the screen is switched off. And I would like to hear more about your training routine, I think I can learn a lot about the UX cases from you.
