I wish I could...

I do have thoughts... I've been looking for a decent android app and so far have come empty-handed. For one, none can prevent splashes on the screen from messing things up.

WRT the Nelo app, there are no reviews on Google Play, which is not a good sign, and the price is high for an Android app, so it better be worth it! I ended up signing up for an account at www.nelocoach.com and I noticed that when you sign up it says that they will review your application and send you a trial version. That's the only mention of a trial anywhere, I had even sent email to nelo asking for a trial version and never gotten a response.

So after signing up I waited for a trial version of the app and of course nothing happened. I then sent an email asking for the trial app to every nelo email I could find and eventually someone responded and after a couple of back-and-forths they sent me an apk file, which I installed. Well, next thing is that I got stuck on the login: when I try my account creds to log in to the app I get a bad password error message (which comes so fast I really doubt it even talks to their server). The "create account" button in the app also returns a bad password error, which makes no sense. So I sent an email to Nelo and now a few days later I get a 1-liner "it should be working now" but .... it doesn't (multiple tries on multiple phones).

I also noticed that the nelocoach site one logs into to review one's sessions is plain HTTP, i.e. not encrypted, which is absolutely inexcusable these days (after all, HTTPS certs are free).

The summary so far is that every aspect of this Nelo app that I look at and experience makes me want to run away. Asking $20 up-front on Google Play is pretty gutsy, I must say. At this point I'm just going to continue to see what happens, but I'm not holding my breath!
