Squelch - Digital Detox and Self Control App

Offers in-app purchases

Why another digital detox app?
• Tired of mindlessly checking your phone every time you get a notification?
• Tired of scrolling aimlessly through your social media feeds for hours on end?
• Tired of looking up at the clock only to realize you spent the last several hours gaming?
• Tried apps to help increase your self-control, and found them wanting?

Are you ready to break the cycle? Designed for people who are serious about exercising self-control over their phone addiction, Squelch is FREE to use and contains NO advertisements.

Here’s how Squelch works
1. You pick the apps you’d like to block*
2. You set a date and time range where you don’t want to access these apps (what we call a “blackout” period)
3. Your digital detox begins!

It’s that simple.

For those with severe self-control issues: Squelch enables you to specify a dollar amount between $1 - $250 (your “bid”). If you break your blackout, this is the amount you would have to pay. We built this to help people who have a harder time with self-control.

* Squelch will only block the apps that you specify during setup. Be mindful of the applications you are choosing to block and avoid blocking apps such as texting and calling apps.

• No paywalls, advertisements, or caps on what you can do. All features are available to you on day one.
• You choose exactly what you want to block and when you want to block it.
• Ensure your success by placing a monetary lock on your blackout periods.
• Easily review scheduled blackouts in one place.
• Track your statistics from the last week, month, or even year.
• Different difficulty modes that will challenge your self-control.
• Fast, accurate, and reactive detection ensures you’ll be reminded during a blackout period.

Why another app?
Here’s the problem: Almost every other app designed to help people suffering from phone addiction is extremely easy to turn off. Here are just a few ways people bypass them:

• Simply turning the app off
• Restarting your phone or tablet
• Using multi-window
• Uninstalling the app

For people who suffer from low self-control, these apps aren’t very helpful to say the least!

Squelch was designed to fix these problems, allowing our users much greater ability to control their temptations by taking a pure, digital detox.

Do you want to rule your technology, or let it rule you?
Many of us have become enslaved to our digital devices, spending way too much time on social media, games, and other trivial pursuits that add little value to our lives.

In fact, when you consider the things you could be doing (reading a book, exercising, talking with a friend or family member, or just plain old thinking), you could argue they actually take away from our lives!

Take a digital detox and try Squelch today. It’s free to use and contains no advertisements!
