About this app

Multiple strategies to control your screen time, block apps, block websites and focus. Regain your freedom.

1. Pause before opening your app or website: A bit of time before choosing if you need to open your distracting app. You can have the wait time increase each time you open your app.

2. Interrupt your scrolling: Check your distracting apps for short periods of time so you don't get sucked in.

3. Set an app goal and optionally block when you reach your limit.

4. Configurable for different days of the week and time by app.

5. Messages like "Is this important" before opening your app.

6. See your screen time for only your distracting apps. Don't worry about Google Maps bloating up your time. App usage timer.

Accessibility permission used to block websites.

Love the app. Only appears to block sites in Chrome - at least on my Samsung. I love the flexibility ScreenZen provides over Samsung's Digital Wellbeing app. However since installing I've noticed quirky behavior across my phone after one week of use. This was corrected by a reboot. This was the only new app I had installed in a long time. I read somewhere Android development may be new to this developer so "buyer beware." App is definitely a keeper. Benefits far outweigh the minor annoyances.

I love the idea of this app and the way it forces me to reconsider mindless app usage. However I've been noticing buggy behavior that makes me disable it for periods of time. I have an unlock time set to 7 minutes, but frequently it will lock an app much more quickly than that, sometimes as short as 15 seconds. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to replicate it, but it happens multiple times a day.

Hi, the blocking should be working better on different devices with the accessibility permission in version 1.39, please try and let us know. Thanks!

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.
