Really liked the app, and have thought most changes made over time were good, but the recent change to scheduled focus modes is bad. I used to be able make up a set of schedules, and toggle them on/off as I saw fit. Now you can only deactive schedules by completely deleting them, which means I will have to re-create a schedule every time I want to turn it back on. This is a terrible change which worsens the app's experience for no reason. Will change my review to 5 starts once this is fixed.

overall it's great at what its designed for but i often times have issues with limits on the go accurately measuring my screen time. sometimes it'll count screen time when I turned my screen off with the app open, or if I leave it open in the background. it'll usually block it too soon in the morning as well. I'll have a limit set for 20 mins or something and it'll block it as soon as 1 sec or 10 mins later. but it won't be for the full alloted time.

Getting used to it. There's a lot to find in the UI. There are some little issues with the new "in app" blocking feature. With the way it is implemented, if it blocks a section of an app, you have to close the app entirely to be able to access other parts of the app that aren't blocked. Other than that, the only thing I'd like is for the Stories tab on Snapchat to be blockable it's like the "gateway drug" for short form content.
