About this app

Using social media apps is not an issue. But, over usage is!
Looking for an app to limit your social media usage?
Looking for a screen time blocker app to help with app usage?

Then, you are at the right place. SocialX is here to help you with digital detox.
It helps track and reduce your screen time on social media apps.

With SocialX you can:

📱 limit social media usage
📈 increase your digital wellbeing
📱 limit whatsapp usage
👪 spend quality time with family
💯 increase efficiency and productivity
💪 reduce wasted time with digital detox and block youtube.

Key features:

1) Track screen time:

With this app, you can track time spent on social media (you can also limit social media usage time) and other apps on a daily basis. You can see cool statistics of time spent on apps in the last 7 days. You can also find statistics of the time spent on each app (this is a premium feature).

2) Set a daily limit on social media:

This Android screen time blocker application you can set a daily goal on the amount of time you want to spend on social media. This way, you have more time to spend in the real world and with real people. Once the limit is set on this social media blocker app, whenever you open a social media app, you will see a timer at the top of the screen. This timer keeps you conscious of your goal of keeping your usage to less than one hour. When your usage is less than 50% of your goal, the timer will show in green color. Once you cross 50%, it switches to orange / amber. After your usage crosses 90%, the timer will switch to a cautioning red color.

3) Block apps other than social media:

Not just social media apps, you can also track and block other apps that take away your time. E.g. let’s say you spend a lot of time on YouTube. But, Youtube is technically not a social media product. However, you can still add it to the list of apps to be tracked and the blocker tracks and limits your usage of youtube.To add more than 3 social media apps, you will need a premium subscription.

4) Set appwise usage limit:

SocialX has a total limit of time spent across all apps that you track. However, you might want to limit usage of a specific app, say, you want to limit Instagram, twitter usage to a certain duration. You can set an app specific usage limit as well (this is a premium feature). With this feature, you can ensure that a specific app doesn’t steal away your productivity.

5) Sleep peacefully:

Block all social media apps during bed time to sleep peacefully and wake up refreshed. When this switch is on, social media apps won’t be accessible during your sleep timings. You can set sleep timings according to your daily routine and limit your screen time and instagram usage.

6) Premium for free:

You can get premium features for free by referring friends and family members. When a friend joins, both of you get a week of free access to premium features.

7) Benefits of premium:

- With premium you can modify your timer which appears while using other apps
- You can add unlimited apps to limit their usage
- Setting appwise usage time limits. Suppose you want to limit instagram usage in particular, you can do it only with our premium plan.
- Do you want to know what was your twitter usage or whatsapp usage for the day? You can get app wise statistics with premium plans.

This has helped a lot in keeping me away from spending too much time my phone, especially the "Focus Mode" widget. However, I am not able to modify my daily limit. After I drag the bar over to the time limit I'd prefer, there's only the option to close out the daily limit screen and the limit remains the same. Some help would be great.

I used to like this app, but today it froze my phone quickly. No matter how many times I clilcked the x button on the reminder, it didn't react, and my phone's screen was grey. If I pressed a button from the to do list, it opened social x, but couldn't do anything either. If I pressed the home button or the power off button, it reacted, but couldn't select power off, or close all apps, my phone was completely frozen.In the end had to look up how to do a hard reset, and now uninstalled the app.
