Added to my daughters mobile to keep it silent at night, not perfect but simple enough to use.

Not impressed The nagging popup is enough to make me want to uninstall. Still, though, I was hoping to use Impel to download a pdf found at a particular URL, but apparently, that's not possible with the app.

Fine but... Works fine but... root needed for some task.

Need to work on license problem This would be a five star app except that the app continually forgets that it is the paid version, auto disables most all of the active events and takes a good 5 to 10 minutes on each new cell tower you pass through during the day to remember it is the paid version and give back full access by which time the whole point of automation is self defeated. Good program, badly broken license system that routinely gets amnesia that the paid version is actually paid and takes far too long to self fix.

Excellent but drop the popup I purchased the full version of this app and love it a lot. I do understand where people are coming from saying that the in app purchase thing pops up all the time. Other than that keep up the great work. Would give 5 stars if there was no popup.
