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.
By far the best no-distraction app! I have Cold Turkey on all my devices, and I must say that it's by far the best. I know bc I have tested many of them. If you're a Windows user they also have the app available for Windows. I am also a big fan of the CT Writer, and if I'm not wrong its available both on Macs and Win computers. Also, I had a question about the app and thr developer not only replied very quickly but also did his best to help! One other thing that's worth mentioning is the simplicity of the app. Overall, great app & developer!
Awesome except its job - cant access ANYTHING. The app definately does its job - cant access ANYTHING. However, it would be nice to access certain apps used for work -- and what I found unnerving was that you can't even open the phone/ dial pad. I do not own a land line so this is scary if I needed to call 911. There should be an emergency call override.
What if you have the app enabled and there is an emergency? You have to move quick to Uninstall the app to access your phone. It should give an option to block everything but phone/text. I removed this, won't be bothering again and will recommend against this app to anyone looking for what I am.
Selective blocking Needs to be more like desktop app where you can choose what specifically you want blocked. You should be able to choose which apps you can't access. A scheduler would also be nice, allowing you to input a specific day or time (I.e. every Monday at 5 block me from Facebook etc.)
One hour does not help Need to add more time, and an option to automatically block at certain times of the day and certain days of the week. It's sad because this is the only reliable app for this purpose. If only you would expand its capabilities, it would be perfect. I would pay $20 for a version like that.
Added ability to share via Facebook and visit the homepage after the block.
