But when you want to spend time with the one you love, whether it's 2 hours for a nice dinner or a whole weekend, the last thing you need is the distractions from your phone. This app will help you stay focused on what's important - your love.

  • My icons! Dec 3, 2018

    By Mollmoll007
    So yesterday I used for first time and loved the FULL LOCKDOWN. I was able to use text, email and phone but nothing else, well camera and standard apps I basically rarely use. I was surprised to find there was no way to disable this at least that I know of. Ok so here is why I gave it only a 3. I have the majority of my icons in a separate folder because I DONT like my screen cluttered with icons! So when my phone went OFF full lockdown ALL OF MY ICONS WERE ALL OVER MY SCREEN!!!!! If you are going to block them PLEASE PIT THEM BACK! Ok so it’s a free app does that give me the right to complain???? I would never pay $7.99 a month though or is it $5.99? I forgot but either one is way too much! Ok so last thing is that you can set an alarm, an alarm that is basically worthless because it is such a faint little “ting” that if you don’t have your phone right next to you it is worthless..... plus I haven’t seen a repeat feature for the alarm so when you miss that tinny ting you can set it to ting again and again till you turn it off. Other then those complaints I really liked it and will use it again. I set the 4 hour mode lockdown and when I need google I wasn’t able to access it but that’s good in one sense I guess... I got a it done!

    This is just something I wanted to say, you can ignore this part. So I installed the thing to keep my apps in order. Then I tested it. Guess what. It didn’t work. I followed every step and had PERFECT internet connection. Turns out I wasn’t supposed to restart my phone, so okay..... but otherwise best screen time app I’ve found. (Okay ignore that part) I have a few suggestions though: A medium lock. You have light lock and a full lockdown mode, so it would be nice have a medium lock. It would be, you choose apps to restrict for a certain amount of time, almost like the lockdown mode, or it’s like the lockdown mode, but you choose apps to keep. More apps to keep on lockdown mode. Not just any apps, but it would be nice to be able to keep some self help apps! That’s my main problem. Time tracker. I couldn’t think of a name for it, but it’s like you have say a hour to use a app every day before it disappears until the next day. Sorry for this being so long, but those are some suggestions I think would be cool. Thanks for helping with my screen addiction!!!
  • If you want a strict disconnection, this is for you! Aug 19, 2018

    Full disclosure: I have a phone addiction I wanted to control and a friend recommended Flipd. First few times even a half hour full block will drive you crazy but later you start to live like a 90s person who only used their phone for calls and texts -and whichever email you have associated to the default app on your phone. Other email apps won’t work- (which I’ve found is the only really useful things I do with my phone) so I have lost much less time since I installed flipd and I have learned how to disconnect from my phone a bit and just live life on the present (pretty philosophical, huh?) New version is pretty sleek looking and nice, and selection of time in the free version is reasonable. You also have the option for a light block if you are at a stage where your willpower is good and you need to check one of your downloadable apps, which is cool. Overall, I think it is one of the few productivity apps that do work! I love it.

    By Andriy Ivakhov
    It’s probably my first review on the app ever. With the procrastinating soul, and plenty of time limitations installed already, i usually caught up myself “trying not to procrastinate”. Long time ago all social media was deleted from my phone but it didn’t really turned me into the productivity monster, I would find some hacks like reading telegram channels(READING can’t be procrastinating, right?!), constantly checking email/credit karma/headspace app. So far I tried: forest, focus at will, screen time internal, cold turkey on Mac, and maybe another thousand of apps like this. Most of them can be easily hijacked, probably in the lockout mode if you delete the previously installed profile you’ll get your life full of distractions back, but at least it’s harder than 6 digits of my passcode and just loosing another tree in forest. You guys did a really great job with groups, challenges, customization. I’m still surprised that your app can be easily used for free.

    If you spend majority of your time on social media apps than studying or doing something productive, this app is a must for you. Go for the premium version. It's useful than the free trial one.
  • I f@$&?! love this app Oct 4, 2018

    By cedarschimke
    What I’ve been looking for fur. Eh. Vur. I don’t know what kind of voodoo magic the flipd folks work on my phone when it goes into full lock mode, but it’s exactly what I need. I am so much happier not having those moments of ‘oh look, I just wasted 30 minutes of my life scrolling instagram’. I open my phone, see that none of my apps are there, and don’t care. Now, I have such peace of mind from not having them there (when I’m in full lock mode), that I often enable it even when I’m not actively working or trying to be productive. It’s so much easier to be present. Also, make sure you add on the thing that puts your apps back where you had them before you go into full lock mode. And read the instructions and prompts for how to do that. I know, I know, reading instructions is a draaaag but they’re short and simple and you only have to do it once. Enjoy not feeling like a squirrel anymore!
  • I wanted to like this app... Feb 6, 2019

    By Stephsteph11
    This app is almost perfect. I could see this really helping me achieve my goals by helping me get off my phone so much. I didn’t even have issues with my apps getting oh of order like others mentioned. However, the nuisance of having my notification settings reset every single time you go into “full lockdown” is enough for me to delete this app. There’s no easy fix for this. Every time to go into a different app the app prompts you if you’d like to turn notifications on or off as it does when you first install an app. And whatever your settings were for the notifications before full lockdown gets erased. For example: for my email app, I only have the badge notifications turned on. After using full lockdown and selecting “allow notifications” I then got a default notification (with sound) every single time I got an email. Which is like every other minute. Which caused me to look at my phone to see why it vibrated/made noise. The exact opposite of what I’m trying to accomplish.

  • One of the best focusing apps out there Mar 21, 2018

    By nsoni
    This app is one of, if not the best app on iOS that helps you break away from your distracting apps. It goes way beyond just sending you a notification about stop using distractions apps and sites which can easily be dismissed. This locks all distracting from your phone by making them literally disappear. It was scary at first and thought there was a glitch and that my phone was erased but after some time everything came up. My only issue with this app is that after go full mode and the distracting apps disappear from your phone which is perfect and amazing but after the timer is over and the apps return by they’re in alphabetical order not the way I set it up. That’s the only reason I’m taking 1 star off. If they can somehow fix that after the timer is up then I will gladly change my review and pay for the app as necessary

    By earlgreyisamazing
    Not only is it incredibly expensive, but apparently you also have to pay for every device you want to use this app on? Honestly? The features are fine and the UI looks clean so I really wanted to give this a go and got the monthly subscription, yet I started regretting that choice not even an hour after the purchase. I just can't wrap my mind around why I would need to pay twice...
  • Too Many Locked Features Mar 31, 2020

    By lambayear
    When I first started using Flipd, I found it incredibly useful. However, I watched over time as they slowly hid more of their features under the premium subscription. At first, I was able to tolerate the changes. For example, the change from unlimited breaks with every Flipd session to only one break allowed without a premium subscription wasn’t too bad for me. I decided that it would be best to take less breaks anyway. However, today it was the last straw. I discovered that all sessions longer than 40 minutes have been locked under the premium subscription. While I used to be able to go a few hours to a whole day at a time, now I can’t even spend an hour in a Flipd session. The only way for me to extend the session would be to constantly start a new one every 40 minutes. This is very inefficient, especially since I use Flipd to help me stay focused on homework for long periods of time. I am finding it increasingly less useful than it was before without upgrading to premium. I am in high school and currently unable to get a premium subscription. All I ask is for the sessions longer than 40 minutes to be made available for everyone again, or at least the 1 hour and 4 hour sessions. Flipd has been so helpful for me in the past, and I’d hate to lose so much from such a great tool. If you can make these longer sessions available without premium, it would be immensely appreciated. Thanks so much!

    I am changing it from 5 stars to 1 star because of the new update, i remember the good days when the ui was really clean, easy and totally free. The company that owns it was owned by just one girl but she apparently sold it and the new company who owns the app never replies, they just need our money, they made it totally subscription based, u can't do anything useful unless you sub, the ui is really bad, theres even time limit of 40mins for non sub users. I hate it, don't even try it.
  • Probably as good as full lock can get given iOS limitations Jul 24, 2019

    By Ashlee Y
    (I was looking for an app that could achieve a true lock down of non-essential apps. I only tried the 5 minute lock down on this app once, and haven’t used the app since.) As many others have said, full lock is an excellent idea but not great in execution. Others complained about the apps being out of order - that was fine for me. What I can’t live with is having my notification settings reset every time I get back from lock mode. I assume this is how the app works: they achieve lock mode by uninstalling and reinstalling all of your applications. The profile you install gives their servers access to control your phone remotely - which is why an internet connection is necessary. However, it seems that the scope of what they can control is limited - most likely due to iOS’s own limitations. The additional script you download seems to be a workaround to reorganize your apps as you had before, but it doesn’t restore your notification preferences on the apps that were un/reinstalled. Your apps give you the “allow notifications” pop-up next time you go into each of them. If you are OK with default notification settings, maybe this is a limitation you can live with. I customize the notifications for each app and I am not willing to readjust those every time I use lock down.

    Recently redownload flipd and it's severely limited, app development isn't free but it's virtually useless without premium, with a target audience of students the pricing and limitations were not a smart move. If it was the social aspect that was monetised, even paying to freeze a streak it'd be a lot fairer given the target audience. Google calendar integration would also be a good call and they should look at how other similar apps have achieved success (e.g. habitica) without losing touch.

    By Siri Kalla
    I wish I could give this app 5 stars - but it's not working properly. A third of the time the app crashes halfway through focus mode - and the minutes I spent before the crash are not counted (which for me often means 8-12 h of not counted offline time). It's also really hard to actually use the apps I've white listed - they close down repeatedly and doing simple tasks like writing an important message takes forever. Support had no help for me. Uninstalling now after some premium month of use.

  • Scared Aug 27, 2019

    By Doddlekid20
    So I downloaded this to try to use it while I was studying. I set a 30 minute timer and I was left with just Apple apps. This thing scared me. It like you download it self and I couldn’t get my apps back, I was so scared and I spent my studying time figuring out how to disable it without the app. If this out go to settings and remove its access profile. Trust me this got my apps back. Don’t try shutting/powering it off that doesn’t help (I tried that twice.) I will try this app again and if it works I will raise my review to a 5 if it works and the company responds to me. If the company doesn’t respond my review stays a 1. *edit* I tried this again and the app didn’t show up it disappeared when I did the full lock down the app Flipid disappeared and I couldn’t get out of full lock down so one again I had to go to settings and remove the management. I don’t have time to do this every time I go in lock down. Also I think the price is too much it should be the price of 1 month forever and I think that doing the custom times should be free. Also the developers are slow they still haven’t responded and it’s been a couple of days. I’m at the point where I’m going to delete this app. It’s not worth any more of my time.

    This app is the best example of loot. Costs as much as Netflix just to keep the phone locked and unused. Only addicts in their lost state of mind may pay for this. Calm app costs just as much but at least it has content.

    I love this app, but it has now serious problems with counting the focus lock session time. I put 2 hours of study today, and it counted 44min. For me the reward of my hard work is to see my performance by the end of the day, so this is really frustrating. I already emailed the tech support and I am waiting for an answer asap.

  • Thank you for such an amazing app!! Oct 21, 2018

    By student1000000000
    This app has really transformed how I use my phone, particularly in the way I procrastinate. I can turn off all my apps with the touch of a button and then I can fall asleep without temptation. You know how it is: you crawl into bed and right as you ware about to turn off the light you decide to check email/instagram/amazon or whatever and then 2 hours later you realize you have fallen down the scroll. This amazing app has changed the way I fall asleep! I can’t thank you enough for helping me put a stop to my nighttime phone addiction! For a hot minute they needed to create a patch or something and the app didn’t work. They were quick to fix it but for those several days I was like “ack! Where is my app!” I use it almost every night!!!
  • Amazing,but... Jul 11, 2018

    By Nour Alanbari
    I think this app is wonderful. I especially love the full lock option because it makes it so that you can’t use your distracting apps, whether you like it or not. My only suggestion for the developers would be to put an option to automatically flip your phone off at certain times. Unfortunately, I’m addicted to using my phone in bed and waste a massive amount of time because of that; it can be difficult for me to always choose to hard lock my phone since a part of me doesn’t want to. I think it’s safe to say that there are many others out there who have an addiction to social media (for example, due to Facebook’s never ending scroll feature on the newsfeed). I believe those trying to cut down on phone time before bed, in the morning when they wake up, etc. can benefit a lot from an auto-flip feature. Hope we can see this sometime soon! Other than that, the app works very well and I haven’t encountered any problems with it. Great job! Edit: I changed my rating from 4 stars to 5 because they’re unable to include an automatic feature due to limitations of the iOS. Hope that changes soon!
  • Most productive for those who truly mean it Jun 4, 2018

    By Naviero0783
    I have done some research and there is no other app that truly lets you to take a predetermined commitment and stick to it . The beauty of this app is that it literally locks down your apps , no other app does that , I am thinking it probably even goes against the agenda of most smart phone brands and that’s why it is such a pain to install . Anyhow, I rarely review apps but I must say this is the most productive app I have tried so far ! Keep it coming ! We will need more of these... They say Cortez burned his ships on shore to ensure everyone stayed inland and get done with their tasks... While it is not the most morally reassuring example , this is very close . Humans are prone to cheating ...

  • One of the best focusing apps out there Mar 21, 2018

    By nsoni
    This app is one of, if not the best app on iOS that helps you break away from your distracting apps. It goes way beyond just sending you a notification about stop using distractions apps and sites which can easily be dismissed. This locks all distracting from your phone by making them literally disappear. It was scary at first and thought there was a glitch and that my phone was erased but after some time everything came up. My only issue with this app is that after go full mode and the distracting apps disappear from your phone which is perfect and amazing but after the timer is over and the apps return by they’re in alphabetical order not the way I set it up. That’s the only reason I’m taking 1 star off. If they can somehow fix that after the timer is up then I will gladly change my review and pay for the app as necessary
  • Wish it had an auto-lock Sep 6, 2018

    By techburger
    I am really pretty thankful for this app. It has improved my self-control when charging my phone next my bed at night. I haven’t really used any other feature besides the full lock. However, I do wish that the app had an auto-lock system that would allow you to set the time that you want it to lock, as well as give customized warning certain minutes before locking. It would be a lot more helpful because the main issue with digital self-control at night is having the self discipline to actually go on the app and lock you yourself out. If they found a way to auto lock you from the phone using a set amount of time, it would be so much more useful. I would pay for a premium subscription if that were the case.

    Great app...but it's really expensive. I loved the app because I get up to 8hrs for free, but now I can't go beyond 40mins. I don't mind 4hrs for free, but 40mins is a start for me.
  • Great App, A Few Suggestions Sep 7, 2019

    By SocialLonerFromFrance
    I don’t comment often but I really do love this app. It’s simple, useful, and efficient when it comes to helping me stay on task. However, there are a couple of things that I’d absolutely love to see in the next updates, and both have to do with (generally) the same thing. One: it would be great if we could choose which apps are allowed while we’re ‘Flipd’ off. There are a few apps that I need to use while studying, like Desmos, Google Classroom and similar apps. Two: the same goes for the ‘Full Lock Mode.’ I love the idea of it, but being able to keep select apps would be amazing. These two things are the only reasons I’m not using the app every time I study. Again, great app, and I hope you guys keep my ideas in mind :)
  • Huge potential IMO Mar 24, 2021

    By ashcari
    My first time writing a review (EVER!!) because this app has so much potential!! It’s my personal preference, but I just wish there was a stopwatch. Idk if there is one and I just missed it, but I usually study without setting time goal. I just do it until I need a break. Sometimes I have to stop suddenly, or I just study over what I set and I don’t want to turn on my phone just to start another timer and repeating that over and over. I would definitely use this app religiously if you guys had stopwatch :( I kinda drifted away from this app because of that
  • My icons! Dec 3, 2018

    By Mollmoll007
    So yesterday I used for first time and loved the FULL LOCKDOWN. I was able to use text, email and phone but nothing else, well camera and standard apps I basically rarely use. I was surprised to find there was no way to disable this at least that I know of. Ok so here is why I gave it only a 3. I have the majority of my icons in a separate folder because I DONT like my screen cluttered with icons! So when my phone went OFF full lockdown ALL OF MY ICONS WERE ALL OVER MY SCREEN!!!!! If you are going to block them PLEASE PIT THEM BACK! Ok so it’s a free app does that give me the right to complain???? I would never pay $7.99 a month though or is it $5.99? I forgot but either one is way too much! Ok so last thing is that you can set an alarm, an alarm that is basically worthless because it is such a faint little “ting” that if you don’t have your phone right next to you it is worthless..... plus I haven’t seen a repeat feature for the alarm so when you miss that tinny ting you can set it to ting again and again till you turn it off. Other then those complaints I really liked it and will use it again. I set the 4 hour mode lockdown and when I need google I wasn’t able to access it but that’s good in one sense I guess... I got a it done!
  • I wanted to like this app... Feb 6, 2019

    By Stephsteph11
    This app is almost perfect. I could see this really helping me achieve my goals by helping me get off my phone so much. I didn’t even have issues with my apps getting oh of order like others mentioned. However, the nuisance of having my notification settings reset every single time you go into “full lockdown” is enough for me to delete this app. There’s no easy fix for this. Every time to go into a different app the app prompts you if you’d like to turn notifications on or off as it does when you first install an app. And whatever your settings were for the notifications before full lockdown gets erased. For example: for my email app, I only have the badge notifications turned on. After using full lockdown and selecting “allow notifications” I then got a default notification (with sound) every single time I got an email. Which is like every other minute. Which caused me to look at my phone to see why it vibrated/made noise. The exact opposite of what I’m trying to accomplish.

    After reading the reviews I was so happy to have finally found an app that would take away my control of my phone and make me really be able to fight my phone addiction. But sadly its not hard to override the app and keep scrolling.

  • Extra settings for premium customers Sep 16, 2018

    By Lumin33rs
    I have read a couple of reviews from premium customers. And I agree. I would love to be able to set my phone for certain times of the day that it should shut off. I don’t always have the self-control to shut it off myself. And I would love to be able to set it ahead of time for what times in the week I want it to be off and what times I want it to be on. PLEASE please please fix this!!!! It would make this app 110% useful It would also be nice if we could chose what apps we want to shut off. There are certain apps I want to close down but also certain apps I need to keep active due to school work but Flipd closes them down. I would a LOOOOOOVE to be able to pick exactly what apps we have to close and which ones will stay active!!!!
  • Too Many Locked Features Mar 31, 2020

    By lambayear
    When I first started using Flipd, I found it incredibly useful. However, I watched over time as they slowly hid more of their features under the premium subscription. At first, I was able to tolerate the changes. For example, the change from unlimited breaks with every Flipd session to only one break allowed without a premium subscription wasn’t too bad for me. I decided that it would be best to take less breaks anyway. However, today it was the last straw. I discovered that all sessions longer than 40 minutes have been locked under the premium subscription. While I used to be able to go a few hours to a whole day at a time, now I can’t even spend an hour in a Flipd session. The only way for me to extend the session would be to constantly start a new one every 40 minutes. This is very inefficient, especially since I use Flipd to help me stay focused on homework for long periods of time. I am finding it increasingly less useful than it was before without upgrading to premium. I am in high school and currently unable to get a premium subscription. All I ask is for the sessions longer than 40 minutes to be made available for everyone again, or at least the 1 hour and 4 hour sessions. Flipd has been so helpful for me in the past, and I’d hate to lose so much from such a great tool. If you can make these longer sessions available without premium, it would be immensely appreciated. Thanks so much!
  • Probably as good as full lock can get given iOS limitations Jul 24, 2019

    By Ashlee Y
    (I was looking for an app that could achieve a true lock down of non-essential apps. I only tried the 5 minute lock down on this app once, and haven’t used the app since.) As many others have said, full lock is an excellent idea but not great in execution. Others complained about the apps being out of order - that was fine for me. What I can’t live with is having my notification settings reset every time I get back from lock mode. I assume this is how the app works: they achieve lock mode by uninstalling and reinstalling all of your applications. The profile you install gives their servers access to control your phone remotely - which is why an internet connection is necessary. However, it seems that the scope of what they can control is limited - most likely due to iOS’s own limitations. The additional script you download seems to be a workaround to reorganize your apps as you had before, but it doesn’t restore your notification preferences on the apps that were un/reinstalled. Your apps give you the “allow notifications” pop-up next time you go into each of them. If you are OK with default notification settings, maybe this is a limitation you can live with. I customize the notifications for each app and I am not willing to readjust those every time I use lock down.

    I wish I could give this app 5 stars - but it's not working properly. A third of the time the app crashes halfway through focus mode - and the minutes I spent before the crash are not counted (which for me often means 8-12 h of not counted offline time). It's also really hard to actually use the apps I've white listed - they close down repeatedly and doing simple tasks like writing an important message takes forever. Support had no help for me. Uninstalling now after some premium month of use.

    It usually crashes in middle of a session and give a wrong time Sometimes it changes the list of groups I am in And many times it wouldn't connect Other than that it's not bad but yet not good as features
  • Jan 20, 2021

    By Johanna Muller
    I love this app, but it has now serious problems with counting the focus lock session time. I put 2 hours of study today, and it counted 44min. For me the reward of my hard work is to see my performance by the end of the day, so this is really frustrating. I already emailed the tech support and I am waiting for an answer asap.
  • Freedom Mar 19, 2020

    By 856901
    This app was alright when I first downloaded and previously provided the ability to obfuscate apps. Unfortunately, after exiting the session it rearranged all my apps making in difficult to navigate my phone. This feature was useful for limiting distractions. However, recent updates removed this feature and now only has limited sessions that require you to stay in the application. I enjoy listening to music during my workday and need access to other essential applications. If you're looking for an app that will not interrupt your iOS experience look at the Freedom app, you can essentially configure to block data traffic for social media apps/ non-essential websites. As a young-professional, I need to be able to use my phone but also want to the freedom to limit my distractions. The Freedom application provides this flexibility. I do not recommend using the Flipd app or subscribing to their premium offering, features are severely limited and don't satisfy the use-case your looking to solve.

    I used to love this app. Now you have to pay for a premium account to do basically anything. I still use it because I haven't found a better alternative, but definitely disappointed at the changes.

    Totally breaks when server is down Trying to load the main page right now is giving HTTP 500 errors, which is fine I guess, I don't use the online components. But this also completely breaks the app UI to the point where you can't start a session. Why should the core app experience require connectivity?
  • Apr 16, 2021

    By earlgreyisamazing
    Not only is it incredibly expensive, but apparently you also have to pay for every device you want to use this app on? Honestly? The features are fine and the UI looks clean so I really wanted to give this a go and got the monthly subscription, yet I started regretting that choice not even an hour after the purchase. I just can't wrap my mind around why I would need to pay twice...
  • May 11, 2021

    By D Small Reviewer
    I am changing it from 5 stars to 1 star because of the new update, i remember the good days when the ui was really clean, easy and totally free. The company that owns it was owned by just one girl but she apparently sold it and the new company who owns the app never replies, they just need our money, they made it totally subscription based, u can't do anything useful unless you sub, the ui is really bad, theres even time limit of 40mins for non sub users. I hate it, don't even try it.

    Recently redownload flipd and it's severely limited, app development isn't free but it's virtually useless without premium, with a target audience of students the pricing and limitations were not a smart move. If it was the social aspect that was monetised, even paying to freeze a streak it'd be a lot fairer given the target audience. Google calendar integration would also be a good call and they should look at how other similar apps have achieved success (e.g. habitica) without losing touch.
  • Scared Aug 27, 2019

    By Doddlekid20
    So I downloaded this to try to use it while I was studying. I set a 30 minute timer and I was left with just Apple apps. This thing scared me. It like you download it self and I couldn’t get my apps back, I was so scared and I spent my studying time figuring out how to disable it without the app. If this out go to settings and remove its access profile. Trust me this got my apps back. Don’t try shutting/powering it off that doesn’t help (I tried that twice.) I will try this app again and if it works I will raise my review to a 5 if it works and the company responds to me. If the company doesn’t respond my review stays a 1. *edit* I tried this again and the app didn’t show up it disappeared when I did the full lock down the app Flipid disappeared and I couldn’t get out of full lock down so one again I had to go to settings and remove the management. I don’t have time to do this every time I go in lock down. Also I think the price is too much it should be the price of 1 month forever and I think that doing the custom times should be free. Also the developers are slow they still haven’t responded and it’s been a couple of days. I’m at the point where I’m going to delete this app. It’s not worth any more of my time.

    This app is the best example of loot. Costs as much as Netflix just to keep the phone locked and unused. Only addicts in their lost state of mind may pay for this. Calm app costs just as much but at least it has content.

    Deleted this app after spending £40 on a year subscription, having technical issues, trying to get hold of someone multiple times and being ignored. The OnePlus phones have a 'zen mode' built in for free that works much better. Don't waste your time on this.

  • Flopd Jun 11, 2021

    By Adriankeith
    I’m a paying member and became one shortly after trying the app out late last year. I liked the way it worked and I liked the feature set. However, the app’s usability has declined rapidly and even just now trying to start a study session it was stuck loading for 15+ seconds I just quit the app. I don’t need yet another app to babysit to make sure it works when I want it to. Heck, I’m not even sure why it’s taking so long to start at all… Based on some reading the woman who created the app sold it off. Don’t know if that’s true but it would explain the decline in service and the decline in the overall app experience. Something as simple as opening the app for the first time takes 30 seconds to just show you the home page. I regret my purchase and if you’re looking for a better app, consider Focused Work. There’s an active discord channel where he will happily take your suggestions and implement them into the app. This app is a hot mess and you’d be better of spending your money elsewhere. Or stick with a free pomodoro app because seriously, this app is just unusable as of this writing.

    I can't download new version. In new update and new version in my friend's phone there is a place to unlock some apps when I want to study and I should use them and also the pomodoro timer won't stop when I use other apps. Plz fix it
