As far I can tell I've got it set up properly but it does nothing at all. It tells me how long I've spent on the selected apps, but they still open right away (no delay), and they never get blocked according to the rules I've set up. Uninstalling. Edit: Reinstalled with a different set of option checked, I think "display over other apps" is necessary. Now it works as advertised, great job. Soon I'll be able to function for minutes at a time without my phone, good for me, bad for Elon.

Hi, could you please go the More Screen, tap "Report a Bug" and then take a recording of the issue so we can try to debug this. Thanks!
My android app timer doesn't stop me from going to settings and just turning them off. Luckily this app doesn't just lock an app after a certain limit, it interrupts my habit of checking my phone every few seconds. I heard about it in Drew Gooden's video and it's actually done a pretty good job. My only complaint is that when I open an app, it takes a few extra seconds for ScreenZen to pop up with its blocker, though that may be because my phone is old.

Absolutely love it. Just one request: PLEASE MAKE IT AVAILABLE FOR LIMITING WEBSITES TOO. Maybe release an extension that are compatible with some browsers? For the ones saying it forgets to trigger sometimes, try tweaking the background/battery optimization settings for this app. Maybe it'll help.
