👉 You will slowly boost your productivity and self-control: With the help of this app, you will boost your productivity for sure and will limit smartphone screentime. Productivity comes by cutting off distractions, this app helps you in achieving the same by staying off all digital products.

👉 It will become easier to stay focused and stay on top of your work: By cutting off distractions you will be able to stay focused on your work. Social media apps are the some of the biggest distractions while working. Dtox app provides offtime to your smartphone during working hours.

👉 You will be free from unnecessary smartphone usage: A few years ago, smartphones were useful. But, with time, they became addictive and now 8 out of 10 people use their smartphones compulsively, causing negative effects on their productivity and life. With DTox, it is now possible to cut yourself off smartphone for at least 4 hours and spend quality time with your family.

👉 Dopamine fasting: Dopamine fasting involves off things that cause instant gratification, like, social media usage, gaming, internet usage etc. Dtox app will help you achieve dopamine fasting and reset your brain’s reward system to value natural rewards over artificial, super stimulated (dopamine rich) reward mechanisms. You will feel more focused and will find more joy in doing day to day things which your brain may currently consider to be boring.

👉 Spend quality time with family and friends: During offtime, you can spend more quality time with your friends and family. As you have no social media usage and no smartphone usage possibilities, you can easily focus on spending time with your loved ones without any distractions.

So at the moment I can only give 3 stars. It works great as it stops you from doing anything on the phone except phone calls and messages but I bought the lifetime service and it doesn't seem to be working. It's showing as though I didn't buy anything. It's saying something along the lines of 'Somethinf went wrong. Try again later'. So currently it's as though I don't have premium. If I could get that fixed, it would be much easier.

We apologize for the inconvenience, dear user. We'd like to fix the issue, could you share the details at support@blockerx.org? Any relevant screenshots would be immensely valuable. Thank you.

I really want the feature by which I can add those apps to Blocklist which Dtox marked as necessary. I really don't want those apps to be left unblocked. One of which is PlayStore, I find this app also as a distraction. Please Devs, kindly add this feature. I don't want unnecessary apps to left unblocked. If you add the feature and notify me, I promise I'll give it five stars (or maybe purchase premium in the future based on the reliability and experience from this app). Thanks!
