Useless unless you want to use chrome

I downloaded this and PAID for it thinking it would circumvent some of Apple’s programming to allow me to use a different browser. This only works if you use Chrome. I prefer Opera Mini (Google is becoming a corporate monopolized that is taking over the world) - beware this only works with Chrome! Complete waste of $$. Two stars because it does work with Chrome, but the developers should offer other browser options.

Developer Response ,

It works with Chrome and Firefox at this time. If you want to use Firefox open UpTime, tap the 'i' button in the toolbar, tap "long press opens in", swipe up to Firefox. I am not able update the app at this time but I will add other browsers if I'm able to in the future.

Support Other Browsers

Title says it all. I’d like to move away from both Safari and Chrome for Firefox, but UpTime only supports making Chrome the default browser. Please update for other browsers.
