I love this app but there are some issues with it. Specially when it comes closing apps that I whitelisted. For example It tends to close some of the phone settings even when I whitelist it. I feel like this app would work better if it show all the apps and documents in the system and allowed you to blacklist or whitelist them. Not a major issue but still. If I'm telling the app to whitelist my settings then it should. A very good example of this is when I go to settings and I want to modify the edge panels (I'm using a Samsung) it completely blocks it. So if I try to whitelist the app or settings I cannot find it in the list of apps provided.
I've tried all the main distraction blocking apps, and I keep coming back to off time. I only need to be blocked from the internet ( I REALLY NEED to be blocked from the internet and reading news), but I also need access to all the other functionality of my phone. Offtime lets me make and receive calls, access everything I need in a day (not just two or three apps like other distraction blockers), and it has a scheduler that makes blocking automatic. I also like that I can choose how difficult I want it to be to turn Offtime off, because I need it to be hard. Other apps are too easy to get through. This is the last time I'm trying anything else, because offtime is really the best there is.
I really enjoy this app. Simple, useful, effective. It helps me stay off of YouTube and Facebook, and in result I have way more time to do offline things like garden work or drawing. Highly suggest to anyone trying to wane unnecessary phone time, while being able to use the apps I need.
Sent bug issue few months ago about scheduled calendar repeating its loop day when deleted, acting as if it weren't. I love the app but the fact this still is not fixed, nor the fact I had no reply to my mail is unsatisfying for someone who paid for the pro version and wanted to donate more.
Its a good app but it will be amazing if it does one new update. The thing is it isn't harder for me to stop the profile. So why don't you make it necessary to touch the screen for a minute or 2 so that it becomes harder for anyone to stop it. Because all those who have installed it are those who are not able to concentrate on their work because of addiction.
I have been using it for a while but I'm not getting the access of pro.. I cant buy the version so if u could provide me with the code.. I would surely look forward for the same.. The app is simply amazing and it helps me in focusing on my work.. Thanks for ths wonderful app
