For more than study It helps me get off my phone when I need to do something productive. I wish there were more exception options, or an option so you could always have an exception. I also wish that they made it so it didn't always say "study" time since I use this for more than study, as well as individual restrictions for each individual time. What if I want to restrict Skype in the morning restricting time but not at night? It hasn't been added so far. Other than that, its perfect for everything.
Still doesn't work with lollipop Update: the developer recently fixed sine bugs related to lollipop, but the app still does not work on my Google nexus 5. The app starts, but does not block any other apps. And it throws lots of "Unfortunately, Self Control had stopped" messages. Old review:It worked great, but once I upgraded my phone to lollipop it no longer blocked my access to forbidden apps. The ui still works fine, but if it doesn't prevent you from goofing off, this app has no point.
Amazing App!! I've been using this app throughout this year and I have to say that it helps a looooad with studying or homework and stops you from procrastinating! Especially now that exams are very soon it's been extremely helpful again, as I'm a person that can't keep myself from my phone and I sometimes spend hours on social media- so this app does help me and I really recommend it! (The layout of the app is great too and simple to use)
If you want to study this app is for you! BEST self control app EVER! This app prevents me from using my smart phone effectively and doesn't let me give into my cravings. :P If you really want to study and don't want any distractions then this is the app that you need. Once you enable it you can't change the settings which I think is a great feature because that restricts you from using your phone furthermore.
Great app, doesn't work with update It was working marvelously before, but after I upgraded to cyanogen os 12.0, not all of my apps are in the Exception list, so I can't allow some key apps such as Google search. Edit: some bugs are fixed, but Google search still isn't an option in the Exceptions. Also, the exceptional state to cancel doesn't work either! August 2015 edit: still the same issues! I need this app, and it would be fantastic without the bugs, so please fix it!
What's up with the Samsung Galaxy I used to use this app all the time on my LG Lucid and loved it. Now I have it installed on my Samsung Galaxy and it won't allow me to make phone calls, text, or even access apps I have added as exceptions during study times. It seems like it's a bug since I never had this problem on my other phone
