About this app

We care about your digital wellbeing. Unpluq’s unique features are built with a focus on offering you a balanced and healthy digital life. Our users save an average of 51 minutes of screen time per day because distracting apps are blocked through our unique distraction barriers. With Unpluq, you will therefore be able to focus on the things you find important in life, free of unnecessary smartphone distraction.

We continue to make sure Unpluq creates a more meaningful (digital) life for you. Whether you’re working from your couch, studying from the library, or having some special times with your friends, Unpluq is ready to help you focus on the “moment”.

Distracting apps blocked by default 🚫
With Unpluq, distracting apps of your choice (and their notifications) are blocked by default, and they are only accessible through unique software barriers. It helps you to regain control over your smartphone and focus on the meaningful things in life. Easy.

Unique distraction barriers 🚧
To access your distracting apps you have to cross a distraction barrier (like shaking your phone for 5 seconds or tapping 7 buttons). The additional barrier helps to make the decision to use distracting apps a conscious choice instead of a mindless habit. There are two barriers to choose from in the free version (Shaking and tapping). Also, you can change their difficulty, to make accessing your distracting apps harder or easier depending on your taste.

This app was almost perfect for my use case, which is to block apps. A feature I would like is a "cooldown" when the app is configured to end Full mode after a set amount of time. Once the time expires, it'll prevent you from switching to full mode for a set time. As other people stated, there should be more clarification about the free plan. I also feel that the 2 app limit is too restrictive and should be changed to around 5 apps

A great app with unique features, works as designed with it not feeling like an app block but rather a slightly added bar that gives you time to think if you really do need the app you're trying to open. They'll release an NFC keychain soon and I'm really looking forward to that, it gives a physical barrier that's easy to open but does require you to think while you grab your NFC tag. The premium features are well worth their money and I can only recommend getting this app, free or premium!

Brilliance in app form! I do recommend to make the free version a little more lenient, eventually many people will be willing to pay and support anyway and the usage would spread wider and further. Also once you got more financing, provide a lifetime purchase fee and potentially lower costs (if inflation doesn't go more wild). *5 stars because it's a young and already quality project and will review again later😉.

What's new

We added a reminder feature, to remind you after you've used your distracting apps for a couple of minutes. Also fixed a couple of bugs.
Enjoy your time!
