Great App I love this App but can't give it 5 stars on account of the calendar scheduling not working. I have the calendar set up to trigger offtime but it doesn't trigger it. It shows the next events but won't trigger the actual event.........I found a work around. The problem is the app is closed so it doesn't trigger when the event begins in calendar. I use another app now to open offtime minutes before the calendar event and it works now.
Vote early...and often Tends to double and/or triple up on sms counts if not other stats. Otherwise great idea.
Great app ( but problem with swipeback2) Hi I found out why the app didn't work on my phone (android 5). I installed swipeback2 xposed module and it was conflicting with the app I disabled it and everything was working just fine sorry for my 3* review your app is great.
When 3,4 months ago I downloaded this app that time app was awsome,but now many problms
Get your time back. Great for getting family time back and for keeping notifications from distracting you -- and tempting you -- while driving.
Developers. TAKE NOTE OF THIS. Dev, the app is not allowing me to operate my HTC Desire 816 in Extreme Power Saver Mode.
Awesome! SMS auto reply (to SMS)? Is there a feature that would send an auto reply to text messages that I recieve? If not, could it be included? I would definately donate if you guys could include that as a feature! Thanks!
Deppress Hello maker of this app.... ............................. .............can you help mee I don't usually using it and it bother me for the reason of consumptioning much of my cp's energy and space .................................It said I must deactivated it .........
Solution to be focused I'd prefer to have a in-app home menu to open apps I accept to access in focused time instead of having to open Android launcher to open them. Although I love cloud services, in this case, I feel so comfortable keeping tracking data in local.
Incredible productivity app Great for keeping focused and blocking apps you don't need/are distracting
Brilliant Very thoughtfully designed app. Does what it says it will do. Very highly recommended.
Mkhasawneh It's a very good app... I can get to my life again :)
Thanx Dev! I was addicted to my phone but after installing this app I was really unplugged! Thank you! Thank you!
Perfect app to use while studying.
188.8.131.52 crashes always 184.108.40.206 was fine
Great app I love it cause it helpful
Thanks for looking at my problem...? When I received a notification, and screen turn on in 'lollipop' version that also count by app, so time for use of device is increased in 17-19 hr. Now I got solution, I turn off the screen on feature when I got something...
great app but with a annoying issue The only problem that is bothering me is why modifying white-list is permitted while phone has been locked? It doesn't make any sense.is there any plan to fix this? what I meant is you shouldn't let user to edit permitted-apps-list when offtime is active, otherwise offtime becomes useless because I virtually can use any apps if I want.
Awesome app! If you are addicted to your phone, this sure proves it. Since I'm a gamer I now try to use it less to get a better score. Haha
Does what the title says! Awesome work... Helped me study for some very important exams..
Will reccomend any time! One of the apps that is a must have for every android users. Keep your addiction away ;)
Great aplication,but i still can avoid blo kade of my phone, so One suggestion only: Disable ability to uninstall aplication while activated focus workout. I hope i gave you an good idea!
Nice All time help to focus on work and disturbing call on study time also use time of my smartphone
amazing tracks my usage... absolutely perfect
Great app. No bugs found yet. Great app.
love it best app for offtimeing
Awesome Super brilliant
Was good until I upgraded to Lollipop Showing inaccurate Usage ?
Can still open apps during offtime Update has not worked :(
Great idea but a lot of room for improvement I love this idea, but it seems like there are a lot of bugs. It tells me my device time today is almost 15 hours, which isn't close. The Phone Time and the Time with Apps should match -- why is Phone Time 15 hours and Time with Apps 3 hours? How else did I use my device in those 12 hours? The Phone Time app is also very confusing -- I have no clue how to read it. Good concept for an app but needs a bit of work.
Lollipop 5.0.1 I am able to select new apps during Offtime which kinda defeats the purpose of Offtime if I can access any app.
Please Help Me Because of you and your app, I have studied hard recently. I could prevent myself from wasting time. But I have discovered a very bad issue. I can now open any app I want while the offtime is working. I discovered that I can edit the list of (Restricted apps access) and add or remove any app I want to open and if I did so I could open any app and waste my time even the offtime app is working. So please fix that issue. Make that list can't be edited from The Program While it is working on Offtime
Nice app Some bugs still present, but functional and allows for some neat insights.
Awesome Great experience of seeing where your time flies away
I like this app. It helps me to work successfully. Thank you,developers.
Need a russian
I really liked this app Always wanted smth like this. Good job, thanks!
Want to help you with translation Hi, I can help you to translate it to Belarusian and Russian.
very interesting application thanks to the developers
Jim Don't be a fool
Cool app!) thx !
This program needed of Russian language!!!! Dear, developer. Please add the Russian language.
Thank you for App Thank you developers this great app
Help with translation into Russian. Dear developer! I want to help with the translation. If you're interested, I can help you with the translation and description.
Please add russian language
Nice app! But it really needs russian language. I hope that our language will appear soon, cause u, Alex, best) And I wanna add that I can help u :э
good, but please add russian
Translate please! (Rus) And add swype. (Added 5 stars)
Bug Please check the compatability with SGS5(specificly SVoice) it attempts to launch from home screen, and keeps being blocked with notices, device becomes unusable
Useful, but RAM usage is awful. Clear and stylish interface, interesting idea, but it's all time in RAM. Tracked with Clean Master, around 40 Mb, 1st in list. I understand everything, but for devices with only 1gb RAM it's huge lack, hope you'll find solution somehow.
How can I test "goals" in the beta?
Really good concept! Offtime has really helped me by reducing the amount of time i spent on my phone, which is really great and im really thankful for! However, sometimes when i start using my phone, it is really hard for me to stop, and i would end up dragging the time spent on my phone. Would really love it if you could add in a feature whereby you can set a duration or time and when it is times up/reached the time set, offtime will start up automatically and prevent the user from using the phone any further.
Enh It does what it says on the tin, but it ALSO suppresses your alarm clock. Which is thw opposite of helpful.
Great app! I always play with my phone before bed until I forget the time and make me sleep really late. And this app help me to stay away from my phone and make me have more hours to rest and sleep. Unfortunately, i'm such a forgetful person and i forget to schedule the off time. I think it would be better if I can set the off time to certain day or weekly repeat for each profile instead of keep opening the app to reschedule the time. Thank you.
Works perfectly but sometimes even after 2-3 hrs of OFFTIME score doesn't improve this happens always after the latest update please fix
Can't turn it off anymore I like the concept of this app, but now it's always running, and I can't tell it to only run when I want it. I don't want apps taking up my memory unless I choose to have them active. In response to the developer's question, the app runs in the background and displays a notification all the time about tracking my day, even though I have tracking turned off in the app. It didn't do this before. It slows my phone down, so I only want it to run when I decide to use it.
Always shows some error Was initially good
Please add backup option
Helps in focusing on my studies
Very useful. I love it!
I like the app very much and I have a suggestion , can you add a feature in which you set a timer for a maximum use of an application. For example I set a timer for 2 hours of Facebook , and when my 2 hours are finished , the program would lock the app for a pre set time by the user ( 8 hours for example or 12 as each person choses)
Does the work
I really love having the information provided by the app but I'm having an issue with the status bar info. No matter how many time I check and unchecked the "keep my status bar clean" box the info keeps coming back up. I don't want to have that info in my status bar all the time.
Great app, but only not for Android L This Is a 10 star app with android 4, but has a major problem with android L. With android L only rooted phones have the capability of automatically turn on and off the data connection. Is not my intention to root my phone therefore OFFTIME will affect only my wifi connection, which lead to a pointless battery drain due to the data been always on. I am perfectly aware that this is not a app bug but it is still a major problem for me.
HTC j ONE There's room for improvement
The best app on my phone right now! I dont usually review apps(sorry developers) but I just had to come and give this one all the stars that I can. I am on a tight schedule and need to study 12 hours a day without being distracted but at the same time having access to people who may need me in emergencies. And this app helps with all of that! Thank you offtime you're wonderful!
Too much Ram consume Google play services are less than this app.around 80 mb.
The app is wonderful, and helps to focus, when you need to. And seems like you guys fixed the high memory usage issue.. Great!
Eh As someone who uses their phone in place of a desktop computer a lot this app was neat for just tracking things done, people talked to, so on. The device on time never seemed right but more crucially it nearly halfed my battery every day the last three months. After work my battery would usually be at 40% compared to 70 without the app running. And it makes sense. The more you do the more the app runs and drains battery, but it ain't for me and maybe neither for you as well.
Excellent app This app is very useful and helps me a lot with my daily phone use. Keep going and bring some new features if possible.
Great, in theory To often scheduled off times fail to initiate. The custom profile set-up screen should be simplified. Would be nice to have an option to disable delaying/aborting scheduled times; as well as an option to end off times with a password (preset or sent to a designated email address); and to be able to turn off the overview screen when off times finish.
Inconsistent I've used this app for almost a year but only recently have I been having issues with it. Sometimes it won't start my scheduled off time even though the app is running. Sometimes when I end off time it will restart itself immediately based on a scheduled profile. A few weeks ago it silenced an alarm that was set to go off during off time (there is no way to whitelist "clock" that I know of). Finally, it frequently allows blacklisted apps to go through, such as Messenger. I can no longer recommend this app.
Love this app, really useful, liked after fixing of bugs, works perfectly. Thanks Guys...
Ehh... Tried it again after the update. Seems cooler if I could get it to work. It asked me to grant special permissions and I did but it keep telling me to grant the permissions. Never was able to try the app.
Kill the bug and get the 5 stars Just one bug that needs to be killed that makes this app perfect. I won't say where the leak is from in case some of you don't know it.
Excellent app and useful info. Excellent app. Helps you get things done and get useful info on your mobile use. Thank you Offtime team.
The schedule section does not run lately.
Great idea, perfectly executed!
Focus I use this APP to stay strictly focused on work and studying. Practical, easy and stabile.
Great The one app I've found to actually helps me stop from using my phone too much. Has everything I need.
Doesn't ask for contacts permission before asking for important contacts.
Gr8 one Helps me to stay away from my phone . ??
Very Useful Great app! A life saver when it comes to studying or focusing on assignments.
Lifesaver. Needed a rehab.
Great App 21/01 Just a few but annoying things. Even though I have incomming calls allowed I cannot answer them. Have to wait for the caller to hang up and then return the call. When using sms or allowed apps Offtime randomly kicks me out. 24/01 Today it blocked Touchwiz Home on my phone and went crazy on me.
Good work but flaws I like this very much but The lock gets automatically opened after using my tab from sleep.When I switch off and switch on my tab I can acess all blocked apps.I u fix it 5 stars.
Great concept and great potential, but unfortunately bugs make it difficult to use. Every so often, my phone lags for a few seconds and the offtime screen comes up (as though OffTime is turning on again); this is annoying, but bearable. What makes things really difficult is that certain apps are blocked like Phone; I have no way to unblock them since they don't appear on the list...
Great app, I was using the pro version, but after a reset on my phone, doesn't let me into the pro version?
This is not working after the the recent android update. Doesnt allow you to selectively choose apps to turn on. Says 'wait for 1 minute' endlessly. Please fix this :(
Can't purchase pro? The app keeps refusing my payment, even if I change the kind of payment, saying it has been unapproved. I used that same payment method to buy an app 10 minutes ago and (Offtime) keeps refusing my money... ???
App has been updated and appears to resolve problems in my previous comment. Overall, very useful app, and one of the only, if not the only, that neatly does what it does.
Doesn't work When I turn it on I'm still able to open and use the things it's supposed to restrict, i had this problem before, can't remember how to fix it
Had to uninstall so I could use phone My normal work day starts with me turning on off time as it helps me focus. Today I noticed some apps were added to block list without me doing so. OK so I try to turn off the app to update, and guess what offtime was added as well. So now most of the functions on my phone are unusable for the day and I can't shut it off. Can't keep using it until I'm confident I can shut off.
Love the app! My only issue is that I had to uninstall and then reinstall because I wasn't able to edit my various profiles. Even after backing up and restoring, I lost all my profiles. I'd like this to be fixed.
Solid app Means i can get stuff done without the constant distractions of daily life.
lagging lagging in my coolpad note 3 seems some mtk issue with this app
Amazing app! Increases focus and productivity at work
Thank you ! I have been using your app for more than a year now, and it's the best, the performance is Super, the design is perfect.
Paid for no reason I paid for the schedule and other options. Would have been great if it worked, doesn't even activate, please help. Galaxy s6 lollipop 5.1.1
Great app This is a great app. I like when you made user cannot uninstall the app no matter what as long still in schedule. But i do like another option, like hours/day to use some app. If not the app got lock. Thanks.
Some issues I rate it with 4 stars because the yearly statistics aren't working and sometimes the application doesn't report corectly the phone usage. Now I am trying the alternative mode B to see if it is more accurate. I would like you to fix the yearly statistics. Thanks.
I really love it
Good idea, but... When I went to watch videos late at night with this app in the background, it disabled my Wi-Fi but not my mobile data. I almost hit my data limit before I realized what was going on. This app should either disable all communication or none, not leave me incurring data charges when I thought I was connected to Wi-Fi.
Not quite what I was looking for. Seems well designed, though - quite slick. Didn't catch my stats accurately, but I like the little windows that pop up to tell you how long you've been using your phone. I would prefer an app that gives me a certain amount of time per day to use certain apps or be on certain websites, then blocks them once the time is used up.
Gave me time for myself This app is great for those who want to get rid of their phone and want real life! It blocks all applications.
The perfect app! I have premium on Galaxy S4. Been using for several months and it works flawlessly. Premium definitely worth it because I like different customized profiles. Scheduling option is great and convenient. Tracking function is bugged, but I don't need it anyway. Tracking notification did not go away until I restarted it twice. Did not track and analyze properly. Staff is welcoming. Sleek and professional design.
App is blocking everything now After the latest update , the app is now blocking everything even the basic call feature with method 3. If i use method 1 or 2 there is no blocking. I am using a moto e. Please help.
Keeps crashing Worked well for a while and I paid for the pro version. Unfortunately it keeps crashing every time I open it. Using a different app now.
A great issue for extreme phone addict like me I found something by which i can close this app even when i am at offtime with unabling manual stop. when i click settings it opens and closes after 1 second. but it remains open in recent apps. i again open it from recent and immediately scroll to apps in the setting and it again closes. then i open again and click on apps. then it closes. i again open from recent and then scroll to running apps. i open again and again until i go to offtime and stop the process of this app. i need you to fix this.
Good but one niggle Great app for changing habits, but sometimes when I go to set up a focused session it seems to think it's already in one, even though it isn't because I have full app access. I have to restart my phone to refresh the app which is rather irritating. Please look into this issue.
Great concept and great potential, but unfortunately bugs make it difficult to use.

What makes things really difficult is that certain apps are blocked like Phone; I have no way to unblock them since they don't appear on the list...' UPDATE: was able to remove Phone from block list and OffTime doens't appear as much randomly anymore. One thing that would be really cool is a feature I've seen in another app, which REALLY works for me. Basically it only allows the app to be turned off if you connect it via USB to a computer. This is better than just a charger because it's more specific; you can just make sure there's no USB cables around and you're set, whereas you're always going to have a charger around if you're like me.
Good except... Solid app but easily countered by using ultra power saving mode on Samsung Galaxy S5. Chrome can't be removed from the default apps available in ultra power save, even if it is disabled regularly. Makes a great app ineffective.
Great app need it for pc too Is there by any chance a pc version?
Thanks for creating this app. It's so useful
Great Now this is what i call a useful app. Keep it up offtime
95% of bugs r fixed!! Rating changed from 3 to 4 stars... with the future updates fingers crossed the rating will be 5. Awesome app and rally helpful if someone wanna be at peace. :))
Awesome Really boosted my productivity , well made app
Doesn't work AT ALL. I start it, it tells me I'm in OffTime, and then I swipe my screen and have access to all apps and all functionality. It is literally like it is not there at all. Disappointing.
Very useful app
Great apps The best digital detox in this very annoying smartphone time. If you want to stay focus or just want to have your own time, try this application
I am really bad about social media usage during school and this app fixed that very quickly. The only annoyance is I have to white list all of my non media apps. I would prefer there to be an option to make a blacklisting instead of a whitelisting of apps so I don't have problems and have to keep forcing myself out of the mode every time I need to use certain apps that don't conflict with school. EDIT: With help from the developer, I was able to find an alternative to the blacklist on their app. Thanks for the help!
The best of all other similar apps, awesome :) What I like the most about this app is it is combination of all other similar apps like stay focused or forest etc. Another thing is it's hard to cheat. To make it impossible to cheat, add this app as administrator, and then lock settings app during offtime. This way you will guarantee that you cant cheat it. Thanks for making such an awesome app. :) Recommend everyone to download it.
As far as I can tell, this is the best app of it's type out there. I debated giving it four stars because of a few bugs, but their customer support is some of the best I've seen and that bumps it back up to five stars for me. Most impressive? The fact that the developers built in an "active user interview" that discreetly popped up and asked me for feedback. It's a small touch, but I really appreciated it.
Great! Solid app but easily countered by using ultra power saving mode on Samsung Galaxy S5. Chrome can't be removed from the default apps available in ultra power save, even if it is disabled regularly. Makes a great app ineffective. UPDATE a way to work around the work around is remove the ultra power saving button from the toolbar then block the settings app. Should make it inaccessible.
Best app for smartphone addicted like me!! It is superb& flawless. i highly recommended it to everyone especially students who can't focus on studies & end up wasting time in playing coc,hayday,cnadycrush,etc.
I have been wanting this app for years! This app has saved me from myself...over and over! I love it. I've tried a few of these sort of apps, but they always had some weakness that I could bypass. Not here. Once I set my off time hours, I'm locked out...and i love it! Great app!
Excellent! Concentrate and relax This app very functionally and beautifully lets me silence the distracting parts of the phone and take a break, while allowing me to keep the parts of the phone I still want active (like the dialer and spotify). Helps me get work done as well as relaxation
Really like the app but it does not seem to block pop out view or split screen view on my Samsung Galaxy S6. I have tried all blocking methods.
Loved it! This app is like the combination of forest, focus and other apps along those lines. It is also black & white so the bright colours aren't distracting! The upgrade was soo worth it since I was able to track my productivity over time. Amazing app overall, hope you create more apps!!! ??
Needs to be able to block apps instead of allow apps. Once a profile is set up, you have to edit it each time you install a new app.
This app has the features I badly need to control my smartphone usage. Focus! :3
Awe..... Someeee. It is a perfect app of you wanna let yourself immerse into your work when obsession with constant check up on phone is hindering you the most. This may be the first genuine review done by me.
Thank you It has been a delight to have an app that let's my device gets some sleep.
The features are good, except that they kinda don't actually work. I tried several configurations, but the app still didn't notice when I just pressed the home button and using other apps during offtime. Also, I told it not to vibrate when offtime is finished, but it vibrates anyway. And I share the grievance that managing profiles is clunky. Fortunately, the scheduling and the notification muting work fine! But ultimately I'm still relying on my own self control. (Galaxy S4)
Life changer I don't do reviews often, but this app had been a game changer, thanks!
Great when it works, which is rare. Most days, it doesn't automatically turn on at the beginning of scheduled offtime
Great application, does what it sets out to do. After trying countless other similar apps I am finally happy with offtime. I bought the full version to allow scheduling and it helps me hugely when I need to work.
Unlock options limited The unlock options are either too easy or far too hard. Needs an option for a custom time lock so I can choose from 5 to 20 minutes. 1 minute is too short and too easy to override. 60 minutes is too long makes this app too risky if I have an emergency I need to deal with. Maybe also add an option to require receiving an SMS from another phone to unlock.
Very useful app Easy to use and highly recommend. There was just one app I wanted to stop myself constantly checking into. It was easy to set this up just to remind me and it works.
Good app for You If you are play hard,you should use this
The app is not uninstalling The app is not getting rid of itself off the admin privileges, hence making it impossible to uninstall.
Pro Version In love with this app!!! Actually it helps me get focus!!
Greaaaaat app , please continue developing it cause.it the best app of the similar ones ❤
Good.. but the only problem is that the scheduled offtime.. sometime, doesnt start at all..
I love it... It has many characteristics
You're on your own This is similar to Self Control for Mac, as long as you make sure to lock yourself out of Settings and to deactivate the Longpress release mode, you cannot get access to the web. Good job. I like the little comments when you try to access a blocked app too. This app works and I can be free. Thank you.
But the daily goal notification is not working
Seems OK just not what I was looking for
Do you need a mommy for your phone? If you are looking to block your self from a phone, this is it.
I thought it would stop me from using those apps that I didnt allowed but it didnt. Then what's the point choosing which apps are available which ones are not when OFFTIME is on?
I love this app .. It is helpfull
Loved it... Grt work...well done...?
Have bought it and scheduling is really amazing, and I am getting used to using less cellphone.
Very good app It's a great app for those addicted to their smartphones. I used to be addicted to the internet now I spend 3-4 hours a day which is good
The scheduled offtimes don't work. I just paid for the pro version yesterday, and scheduled an offtime for 6:00am this morning, and the very fact I can access Google play proves it isn't working. I just paid for the pro version yesterday, and scheduled an offtime for 6:00am this morning, and the very fact I can access Google play proves it isn't working. Please fix it, I really need to able to pre set fixed recurring off times. The gear shaped advanced settings that is mentioned in the FAQ is not showing up on my device.
Very good concept. Still buggy. I turned my phone off with a scheduled OFFTIME the next day which failed to turn on profile.I'm using lollipop, so that could be it.
Why does it Haber turn my data off? Whilst I see what they're trying to do I need my mobile data for work. I have no choice about whether this will be turned off if I want to block apps. I don't need facebook but email is important!
Exactly what I was looking for I've only just set this up (and I think I can still do some more tinkering) but I LOVE THIS. Exactly what I want. Block all social media for a while and still be able to use your phone for podcasts or reading or whatever your case maybe be. Perfect.
Good app, BUT (!) Make a "max allowed time" function, please. E.g. I set it to 1 hour a day, and I have access to all apps (whitelisted, blacklisted) until this max allowed time runs out. After it runs out, my blacklisted apps start to be blocked. I hope you hear my ask. It's vitally important function not only for me.
Great app Use your phone too much? Struggling to stay away? This app is the perfect app to help you resist the urge for senseless useless phone use. It does exactly what you want it to. Get this app.
Best app in its category. OFFTIME is by far the best app/distraction productivity app in the Google playstore because it simply has all of the features that one would want in an app like this which, aside from a few small issues, all work flawlessly. It also looks good, and has a useful "insights" feature, which compares statistics about the user's device use global averages. Lastly, the developers seem active and friendly, which is always a plus.
Working like a charm now Thanks for the response on my last comment. You should really look into that max time allowed feature for apps. It is a suggestion by many users
So useful - but needs a scheduler Initial impression: A. Awesome. B. When I checked that it blocked non-approved apps (and it did) it gave pop up messages that didn't display properly on my tablet, and were reminiscent of 1950s style shame-based parenting. All I need is a friendly reminder. C. The in app clock shows UTC time and I don't know why - I'm in Australia. D. I need to set it up daily? That's not practical for me. With a scheduler, it would be 5 stars.
Doesn't block apps I don't know if it's a bug or something, but when I press my home button on my Lenovo S90, the app's still working on the background, but all the apps I blocked can be used. Kind of a turn-off.
Easy to bypass I've searched through the settings and there is no "no manual exit" option.
Love it Seems to work great. Love the pop-up messages when you're trying to beat your offtime! Really recommend!
What a load of crap this is at the moment Bugs everywhere can't do anything I mean ANYTHING I want my money back if you can't fix it
Not working anymore It used to work but since the last update it doesn't work anymore on my phone. And I'm a PRO user! I tried the three blocking methods with no results. How come it was working fine and it's not working anymore all of the sudden? It was a super useful app for me :-( . Besides, I tried to contact support in the past but they never reply. I would be happy to change my review if someone helped me make it work as it was working before.
It has become very easy to uninstall Im using samsung J7. Even after granting admin access i can easily uninstall the app. And it takes around 1-2 minutes to shut down an app. Used it before and it was great. It sucks now.
Did not work App would not block apps no matter what I tried. Scheduling also did not work. I even spent money to get the pro version but still no luck. I followed all the advice on the app FAQs and I eventually got a final answer of "sorry it doesn't work on your phone" I have android 5.0 so it should work! Not worth the waste of time and money that it was. Do not bother, it is a flop!
Have noticed that when I set the offtime in the evening the clock in the app shows the time as 18:00 when the time is set for 06:00 am. So it appears that the app is 12 hours out of since with my local time in New Zealand. Otherwise a very good app would rate it 5 stars but with clock issue will give 4 stars.
Good app This app doesn't save any of your data in a cloud and helps you monitor your smartphone usage. The offtime feature is nice. Another good feature would to block selected apps after a certain time.
Offtime This is an application that everyone should have, it helps to control any addiction one has to electronic media. I love this application and will use it daily.
Ok Sadly wanted schedule so when i log on it blocks me from 10 pm onwards sadly I need an alternative for free anything that would help would be great
Yes working fine after update Previously it didn't work better ....its best app to detoux
Bug I found a bug, due to which if permissions are not given in app settings, it will constantly force close... look into this
100% awesome Such a great app!
Does what says
Error when timeout ends Since the last update, it shows error whenever my timeout ends. It somehow pleases me to see how long I was away from my phone lol. Please fix. Always love this app.
Best app EVER!! A must for all students and others too can take it. 5 stars are less for this. Just a suggestion allow us to manually type the minutes instead of scrolling it
App worked great but after one of the updates it no longer auto block apps. I removed all my battery saver apps and app only seesm to start when i open it not on schedule like it use to edit: Chaning the method did help with blocking but now the app stays on and blocking even after the aloted schedual time into the next day. IE: set time is 7pm-1158pm, app starts at 7pm and keeps blocking until 1158pm the FOLLOWING day. 5hrs translates to 24+ hours
App times not accurate. Great app, love it since I started using it! One thing annoys me a little bit. The in app times are not accurate. It said that I used Outlook for 4 hours today and that, that was also between 5 and 6 am. This isn't true and I know that for sure, so maybe fix it in a way that (I think) the app background processes are not counted in? If you do that, It gets 5 stars again and a happy user!
Since installing Offtime, Messenger consistently crashes and error/fault messages appear. This is happening even when Offtime isn't 'active' and in down time. Does this happen to anyone else? Any ideas how to stop it and Messenger bugging out? If I delete Offtime and reboot Messenger it works fine, but then reinstall Offtime it goes haywire again.
The features are good, except that they kinda don't actually work. I tried several configurations, but the app doesn't notice when I just press the home button and used any other apps during offtime. There were various broken settings, but they may have been fixed now. EDIT: Recently, it repeatedly turns itself back on after I've ended a scheduled offtime. Ugh. I really wanted to like this. (Galaxy S4)
Very useful. Works on my OnePlus One running Android 6.0 with "Alternative Method B". Developers responded to my previous Play Store feedback with suggestions for fixing, which solved the issue. Thanks!
Back to being awesome! Servers are back on and the customer service resolved all the issues I had. I'm very satisfied now- would definitely recommend. It's the best app blocking app on the market (if the blocking methods are compatible with your phone) because unlike the competition I live the fact they have 'Enforce' mode on, which is a must have for chronic procrastinators.
Better now than ever! Offtime works smoothly and exactly as intended now that a lot of the weird bugs have been worked out. My biggest problem is that I don't use it enough, if anything! Thanks to the devs for all the work they've put in!
DO NOT INSTALL!! Since I installed this app then decided to remove it from my phone, I cannot uninstall it. Trying to remove it from the phone administrator list will cause the settings menu to crash. I emailed the developer about this issue and they basically said sorry we can't help since is Android. What type of crap is this? I installed their app and now I'm basically not allowed to uninstall it because it's written poorly. Do not install this. Many people have had this same issue and are stuck with it on their phone...
AMAZING APP Thank you so much for creating this app. It is an incredible tool to be able to unplug our lives from the constant tone of noise around me from my fantasy team to facebook. All while ensuring that my wife can still call if she is out. Thanks this is exactly what I needed it. Update: Great and qucik responses from developer along time saver app
Tot it's working but it's not After the update, it seems like it's working but it's not! The screen for off time is there but I can still use all apps without any issue. Using the scheduled feature in pro. It's still not working. Can still use all the apps that I blocked out.
Great App About a month ago when I downloaded this app it didn't work. But I can see that the developers have been hard at work and the problem is solved. But one thing that would make this app even better is if you could choose to have a white offtime screen instead of black and also white pop-ups. Keep up the good work. Thanx
This is going haywire! Help I cant click on it to uninstall either, just flicking off and on. Edit...so I re installed and now it's asking me to pay again....
Loving it but... Its been great up until recently. I try to access the schedule part of the app and it keeps restarting. Will change my review once this problem has been fixed.
This is hands down the best app!!!! - All problems with the app have been fixed after the update - This is without a doubt the best app to assist you with disconnecting from your phone. It allows you to really focus on your work or study and to enjoy your time with others without getting distracted by your phone. Personally it has helped me a lot and I really appreciate this app. Thank you to the developers and keep up the great work :)
Nice but can you allow an option to disable the haptic feedback when trying to set the profile duration. It bothers me.
Has problems New update doesn't actually block the blocked apps on Samsung Galaxy S5.
It's working now! I'll give where the credit is due: there's your 5 stars! Thank you for your work. Thank you for fixing it.
Suggestion App needs to be given permission manually from the system settings after installing in marshmallow, mention this somewhere so others don't get mad when it doesn't work right away.
Productivity booster! Updated: Works after app and system settings update! I work at home, so this app helps me keep distraction to a minimum. Keep up the good work!
Error can't login Keeps showing error messages when trying to create account or just to login saying failed to contact server
Devs have fixed previous issues faced.
one of the best distraction apps there is!
I can't create account the app can't contact the service....
Very helpful The paid version lets you schedule when to block your phone every day. You do have options to allow certain apps to run during offtime. You can also track your usage, too. It's helping me detach from the phone and to focus on what is important. One suggestion about tracking usage: I sometimes use my phone for maps, for spiritual reading and other legitimate things. I wish that the tracking can distinguish those kinds of things apart from things like social media, texting, talking and surfing the web.
Spot on, near perfect One small suggestion, maybe the user should have to leave their finger on the screen while the 60 second countdown goes down. Makes it so you can't just click it, then leave your phone to the side, then use it like normal. Otherwise, fantastic.
Difficult to find the proper settings I installed the app, but it took me quite long to find the way that the settings must be changed in order start it. Maybe more detailed descriptions can be supplied at the help page. Otherwise it seems that the app still has some usability issues. How do I change the settings for a profile? Nevertheless I find the idea great and it seems to work so far thus 4 stars.
This is really smart. It has been improved since i installed not allowing me to cheat myself by resorting to force stop and prevent me from uninstalling. To keep me committed I just had to block settings to prevent myself from 'accessing apps with usage access' to disable offtime.
The app won't work The app starts glitching the minute I tap on it. It says that it will be uploaded and fixed. Please fix it soon so I can use it and change the rating!
Not working since last one week What happened to you guys..? As soon as I start the app, the mobile starts misbehaving.. Please fix the issue..
A must download Before i got this app i was probably the worlds best procrastinator. This app has helped to motivate me to do my homework and wtv not. Its really simple and but makes me a lot more productive. Best app so far to handle procrastination so far for me ;)
Buggy? Just flashes between black and white screen and doesn't load. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still no joy. Shame as I was looking forward to using.
Won't load at all If I could get it to work (version 3.0) I could give an informed review, but I've installed and uninstalled twice and when I try to load I just get the logo and then the screen flashing from white to black and back. Guess I'll try a different app. Off time came well recommended, so let me know when it's functional again.
Great app! Keep me on track! However the app will still lock my phone even after I deleted the particular schedule. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app so that the deletion of the schedule would take effect. Great app none the less.
Will not work at all! Just downloaded and open the app it lights up the screen white with title and then nothing. Seems like it is trying to open or something because it alternates between a black screen and a white screen
Disappointed I love it, I paid for the full experience. Sadly, however, since having to do a factory reset all the app does is stick in an error loop until I close it manually. Hopefully it'll get fixed, as I depended on it.
App Doesn't Boot Up I installed the app. I tried to start the app. I got a flashing white screen, followed by an error message. Tried to start it multiple times with the same result.
Bug? Help? When I open the app, I see the app logo, then the screen blacks out, and the app restarts, and the screen goes black again (this keeps repeating) please fix
Hasn't worked yet When I open, it flashes a white screen with the logo, then repeats between flashing a white screen and an all black screen.
It really works. I tried this app after using many 'quit addiction', and it really works. It really helps me to quit phone addiction.
It not working on my one plus 3 As soon as I open it screen goes blank, please fix it, I like this aap
