It's a great app that have increased my productivity in studies. Right now, I have given 4 starts only beacuse it's lacking one feature that I would like to have in this app. "Silencing the notifications from apps" is a good feature but it can be made more useful if you guys bring a feature to "block notifications" or "block their internet usage" as long as a profile is active and when we inactivate the profile those apps can again access uninterrupted internet. For e.g. if I apply this feature to WhatsApp, all the messages shouldn't only be silenced but they should be blocked to arrive in my phone. Hope you guys work on this. I will give 5 stars then. Thanks :)
It's an amazing app! But i have a few suggestions.. It would be nice if you could make it a little more difficult to disable the profiles, that method should be a little difficult to carry out so that we don't lose focus.. -from a student who loves social media :( Oh and also please add a notification when the profile begins and ends with different tunes.. Otherwise, it's awesome!! Thanks creator! :)
This app helps me focus (pun not intended). The only thing I would like to see is a global timer for how long you can use the blocked apps per day
update: new features are what I want ======= I think the author should find a way to prevent users from deleting profiles, or make the deleting more difficult to perform cuz when you are eager to use the blocked apps, you can just delete the profile then the blocked apps can be used as normal, which means the app doesn't stop your distraction.
I think it would be better if I could set the time of allowed usage . So I can allow 10 minutes during lunch break but since I might miss the window if it is set to unrestrict me between 1 and 1:10pm so I make the window up-to 2 pm so again I might distracted for 1 whole hour
The new feature that allow us to only unblock a profile after entering a password are good...But If u guys allow us to block this app itself it would be better..If there's an emergency we will just go the settings, then disable this app in the Applications with usage access menu...Please take this into consideration
- Ability to mute distracting notifications along with applications.
- Modifying or disabling an active profile now requires users to enter a password.
- Lock/block the HelpMeFocus app with a password.
- Duplicate an existing profile and use it as a template create a new profile.
- Minor defect fixes.
