    "This app is a good option for employees/employers who are working on small tasks that need to be time managed. The app will require some time wasted by the individual to set up the task profile and require the person to engage the app so show completion. Overall it will be a good time management system, but the productivity is based on your initial input so it might be better geared for team management rather than personal management "
