Nice features. The timers to decide how long you'll be on an app every time you open it is a good way to stop doom scrolling. The simplistic design truly helps to stay off your phone. One bug I run into somewhat consistently is not being able to open the app drawer. I swipe, but it stays stuck on the home screen. A few times I had to go into my settings to force stop the minimalist app and that helped it get unstuck.

Note to devs: This is NOT about web links. I like the concept, but it's so restrictive that it decreases productivity. All I wanted to do was add a custom shortcut to my calendar and one to my task app, but that's not possible. You can make shortcuts to the camera and the phone only (two of my least used apps). The dev responded to this but mistakenly thought I was referring to a web shortcut. I am referring to the icons in the bottom corners of the home screen. Those should be customizable..

Hi, you can create shortcuts for web links. For this open the web link > click on the three dots > add shortcut to home screen > name the shortcut > add it to favourites to be able to access it on home screen. Let us know if that helps at hello@minimalistphone.com. Your minimalist phone team!

I like the mindful app usage reminder. However, if I open an app with a time limit, leave, then relaunch it from Home, it forgets the time limit and prompts me to set a new one. I wish it'd show a "_ minutes left" toast instead. I'd also love an ultra-convenient button to lock the screen or temporarily block an app I'm mentally stuck in. Maybe running out of time could lock you out for ~1 min. Thank you for the perpetual license option!! It makes me feel more secure relying on this app.
