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!

Great concept, buggy. Worked perfectly the first day and now only sometimes initiates. Sometimes the puzzle is done and I have to exit out and reopen. Sometimes it freezes on the unlock screen. It's a very glitchy experience.
