Update: the app just won't stay on/active. Therefore I'm able to access all my apps all the time, which completely defeats the purpose of trying to self impose limits. Sadly, I'm deleting this app and finding another. This app started out as awesome! I loved it! But it has slowly started working less and less often. Even though the settings remain the same, none of the limits are being applied.

Perfect! I wanted something to limit my Instagram use throughout the day but not totally block it. I tend to get into a click hole and lose a lot of time, and this is great for keeping my usage in moderation. The only thing I'd like is an option to set limits for certain days of the week. I want stricter rules for M-F but more relaxed ones for the weekend. Maybe in the future!

App works great! I was looking for something to allow me to use certain apps through the day but not too much at the time. So for that it works great. Haven't checked anything else. The UI is a bit ascetic, but it's clean and not cluttered at least. There are some translation errors or just wierd phrasing. I would love to be able to make the notification small in the notification bar and to maybe hide it when I'm using not limited apps.
