New/issue: it used to be able to even when I got battery saver on but now maybe it can't because of it for some reason, possibly recent update. It's supposed to block Instagram at 1 hour but it doesn't work until I open the app, then it doesn't work again after a bit of time. Old: Wonderful app, I like all the features and ways it could help you. I would like to add maybe a way to unblock some apps on sleeptime mode, I'd like to have my messeges be unblocked.

Love the app overall. I think the feature where focus mode is buried in the settings is a bonus. Taking several steps to modify it can discourage you from just turning it off when you want to "cheat." A couple suggestions: Sleep mode: there needs to be an option to keep your phone accessible. If I'm making a phone call at night, it's because it's an important one. Focus mode: I would love to be able to block different apps at different times.

It works exactly how it says it works. Adding and taking away time is super easy and self explanatory. The way it tells you how much time is perfect. The widets and focus mode are very helpful. I haven't run into any ads and the ap works how it should, 10/10, would recommend, Go for it, Of course, It works for me, But it might not work for you, But I recommend you at least try it. (Would like a password option on it for parental controls, But not necessary!) Thank you, Ap Designer's! :DD
