No-frills app that gets the job done. It wouldn't let me open apps from the home screen, and I couldn't close it from the "all apps" button on my htc ten so that wasn't an issue. I do have a wish list though: -block certain apps but otherwise leave phone alone. -block everything but whitelist certain apps (i use messenger to text, use other apps for work) -allow for longer block times so i don't have to muster up the willpower to block the phone multiple times a day :)
Doesn't work on Android 7.x! This distraction blocker can be easily bypassed on Android 7.x when you go into split screen multi tasking mode... Other then that if you use a phone/tablet (most devices running Android 6.X or lower) without split screen multi tasking, it's nearly impossible to bypass it
It's perfect with one big flaw. While it's activated, if you click on recent app key and quickly swipe this app away, it closes. Also, if you have configured 'back button long press closes current app' in settings, doing this simply force closes this app. Extremely easy bypass method. This practically made it useless for me. Please fix it.
The best no distraction app, but not perfect . Unlike other focus apps, this one doesn't let you keep it open in the background and use your phone normally, a huge problem. I helps me focus with my ADHD and removes. Temptation. PROBLEMS: I can't make emergency calls, 1 hour isn't long enough, it blocks everything before I even hit cold turkey, and the BIGGEST ONE: if you quickly open up the app switcher, you can quickly swipe it away. Please make it so that you can't open the app switcher at all.
The desktop app is great, and the simple concept of the phone app is good, too. On a Samsung S7, it is still possible to open the multiple task button (bottom left, overlapping rectangle button) and force-quit the app, which prevents it from functioning effectively as a phone blocker. Fix this, and it would deserve 5 stars, hands down. The ability to disable the app in less than a second unfortunately renders it useless as of the current version (2).
Easily the best no distraction app out there but far from perfect. There is one thing you could do to make it perfect. 1.) What if I want to use the calculator or my Dictionary app while studying ? There should be a way to exclude some apps from being blocked. Otherwise a great app to block distractions.
