Incredibly helpful. I was able to leave apps free and available that I want access to like audible, while setting time limits during the day on goggle, FB, etc. Focus time during the night blocks everything, but you can allow what you want like phone and text. This way I am not tempted to browse the internet when I want to be sleeping. I have tried many apps and there is always some issue or glitch. This one, however, perfectly delivers on everything I need.

I really like the limits on the go! But it isn't working well. When I'm on Reddit or DuckDuckGo browser, and I'm swapping back and forth between the keyboard and the app, I get the limits on the go prompt every time I swap back to the app. It makes editing really annoying. Also if YouTube goes into small window mode, and then I open it back up, I get stuck in an endless loop where I open YouTube full screen, the popup from StayFree pops up, I make a selection, YouTube goes small screen again...

Quite frankly, I was spending wayyy too much time on my phone and as a result I wasn't getting much done. I had tried all sorts of different motivation and habit based tactics to reduce wasted time with some success . Then my wife showed me a similar app that didn't work which led me to finding this app after I deleted that one. Since then my screen time has gone down drastically, I have been much more productive, and I've been much happier as a result. This app has helped so much!!!!

What's new

This release introduces a new feature: Limits on the Go. If you enable an app for Limits on the Go, StayFree will prompt you when you open the app for the time limit you want to set for the session. When you hit the time, StayFree will block that app. You can then choose a new limit the next time you open the app.
