Good start, usable app It works great except for a few things. When you use music, you can't pick a playlist. It just starts playing your "music." so there is ringtones, voicemails, it's unusable in that sense. Then when you just use alarm only, there's actually no alarm to let you know the minute is up. You have to watch the screen to see when it's time to drink. Fix these two things and it's a 5 star app for sure.

Its ok It works as far as a timer goes... It doesn't vibrate when muted which would help so I can hear it not look at it

Frustrating This app worked great as far as power hours go, except that it constantly reset itself. All of a sudden the music would stop and when I would check on it, it would be reset at 60 minutes. I had to give up because I had no idea what number I was on.

Great app! By far the best free power hour app. Simple and has everything you want, and not buggy or restrictive like the other free power hour apps.
