I love the multi-platform features but sadly the app is pretty primitive for the amount of marketing they do and money they charge. On Windows the app blocker simply terminates the programs. On Android there is no way to snooze the block - only to end the session. I have used Stay Focused and that app does much more much better. And on Windows Microsoft Family Safety does the same thing for free, with ability to extend or bypass block times and without terminating the apps and risk of data loss

Easy to use, really helpful reduction of temptation to distraction and digital addiction. Works smoothly across my phone, tablet, and computer. Does require a paid subscription but was like 20 something dollars for a whole year, which I find to be reasonable. My main complaint is that if you accidentally start a session with a mistake like an incorrect end date, the only way to end it is delete the app. There is supposedly an option to edit the session, but it does not work.

This App is amazing... one of the very few multiplatform out there and at an amazing price. I've used it on my Macbook, iPhone and Windows netbook, where I've set a 24/7 locked on distracting websites and content. The android app is nice, however, it is missing a crucial feature, which is the pin protection from uninstall. If they can learn from apps such as Detoxify, Blocker X for inspiration on how to prevent uninstall, I think this will take this app/platform to the next level. Until then, I will cheer them up as I hope to see this feature soon!
