    Default Feedback on the new update on Android

    Been using the app for a month on my Nexus 6P (Android N). Really like it, but this new version on android something has changed.
    - App keeps on crashing when I open it and I have to reopen it over and over.
    - The timer is a bit unreliable. Seems to stop working when I turn off the screen. For example, when 3 min rest time is up, the timer would still have 120 sec on the clock. However, I would still get a notification to start my next set.
    - Timer for warm up set is not beneficial and I suggest to take this function out.

    Other suggestions:
    - perhaps allows users to add their own exercises to the program, such as chins/back extensions, bent over rows etc. I know it's not in the program, but it could be useful for users to track progress on these lifts too. For example, weighted chins.

    Thanks for the feedback

    * app keeps crashing -- unfortunately this has been happening for a while and its a bug in the platform i'm using. They've claimed it will be fixed in their next update.
    * Timer - let me check that, does it keep running even when you go back in to the app?
    * Warmup timer - user has option to remove it in the next update (this week)

    One thing I noticed on the new version on android is that when you put in today's training, you can swap workouts independently (bench > press, and deadlifts > cleans) without cycling A>B, but when you input training history after the fact, that isn't an option. It would be nice to have that option back for inputting training after the fact as I do often.

    Timer would keep running, but it's not accurate. Think it either stop running when my screen is off or when I switch the app. However, the notification is somewhat accurate. Usually alarm goes off when there's 45 or 60 sec remaining on the correct time.
