Thinking about forking over the $10 to get the app for my laptop. Thoughts on it? Has this helped anyone with productivity?

I'm not a procrastinator so I can't relate directly, though people close to me are. I guess there may be an incentive in it, but it seems juvenile and gimmicky and makes me sad to think that technology invades even the space of the writer's mind. But if it helps, I take all that back.
Honestly the only reason I want it is because of the feature that disables the backspace key. It's the same reason why when writing freehand I use a pen. It forces me to shit my lump of coal.
I'd buy it if it actually killed me for failing.
It sounds cool, but the Kamikaze mode would terrify me. I have a toddler, some times I have to be justifiably distracted--how fucking horrifying to be dealing with a toddler disaster just to come back and see my work has unwritten itself!
Shit, I think that's a no-thanks.
