I have no self-moderation abilities and I can tell this is going to help me a lot. Focus mode is great for procrastinating and I love the timed feature for bedtime. The pause mode will be good too for a total detox day occasionally. As others have said, it does drain your battery but I've cut back so much on idle phone usage that it almost balances out. Really great app.

I used this for a while no problem, and it helped me curb my chronic social media use but one day it just started crashing repeatedly. I keep getting pop-ups saying the app has crashed, even when using apps that I don't have timers on. I Uninstalled and reinstalled and that fixed it for like two days until it broke again. I like the app but the crashes are making it unusable

This app functions to block websites and apps as advertised. However, there are flaws. First, battery. Today, this app used more battery than any other app on my phone, including over an hour of internet browsing. More concerning is data. The app is 10 mb to download, but in the last three weeks has used a staggering 700 mb of cellular data and 2.3 gb of non-carrier data and I am receiving ads for websites visited in incognito mode. I am concerned about my data security with this app installed.

What's new

We have leveled up! With this release we are unifying our Android app and Chrome extension. It allows you to "connect" any of your devices (running StayFree) together. Once you connect your devices together, you can see and explore the usage from your other devices. For example, check out your Android app usage from our Chrome extension! There is no limit to the number of devices you can connect and the app will seem-lessly adjust to display your combined usage stats. Let us know what you think!
