Screen time affects all of our lives. Opal is the perfect app for people looking to reduce their daily screen time, increase focus, less stress, digital detox, and better sleep. Using proprietary technology, Opal can disconnect distractions on your phone and help you stay focused and more present.

You can use Opal for however little or long as you want. Want a 20 minute deep focus session? You got it. Want to leave Opal on in the background all day? You can do that too. You can also schedule Opal to turn on automatically and block different apps at different times of the day. For example, you can block social media from 9am to 5pm and block work apps like Slack from 5pm to 9pm. Opal helps you build work-life balance with better boundaries.

What’s New

Version 2.29

It's time for a vibe check! I hope you've been doing okay with the seasons changing and all _/\_

In this week's update, we have a bunch of exciting things to share! ^_^

- You can now start an Opal Session with a Siri Shortcut! You can use it to disconnect automatically when you enable Do not Disturb, or when you arrive at work, or even include it within your existing Shortcut workflows! The possibilities are endless and we are excited to see what you create! :D

- You can now create 'App Groups' where you can customize what apps you want to block during different Opal sessions. You can have a group for your most distracting social apps, or your work apps etc. and block those preset apps in one-tap rather than manually selecting what apps to block each time. We hope you like it!

Our team has been super hands on at making Opal significantly better for old gems and new gems alike and we're shaping our product based on all the feedback lovely people like you continue to give us. We really appreciate you! If you'd like to be in touch with other gems like you and our team, join our Discord server on https://opal.pm/discord!

Follow us @withopal on Twitter, Instagram and TikTok for more updates! See you next week!

xoxo,
Opal

Am I productive now?

I’ve downloaded this app at the perfect time! Since WFH, I’m so distracted and my main hobby now has been scrolling through social media (I’ve tried the “do not disturb” setting but it’s too easy to dismiss) so being able to turn off apps like this is so so helpful and I can already see myself doing a lot more work. I’ve even been able to set a schedule for the evening so I can actually get some sleep now!

Also, side note, but look how little Opal is! Widgets are a big plus for me since iOS14 and this one fits perfectly with my phone

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great idea!!

Really helpful app as I certainly fall into the category of being distracted just by the sight of my phone, let alone any notifications. Probably a little addicted to my phone.

Used this for a few days now and I’m getting less distracted and am completing more work on time, could just do with an app for my Mac now. Would recommend giving it a go as it has helped me in the short time I’ve been using it.

I also like the idea that all of my information is safe and is not leaving my phone.

Exactly what is needed right now!

I honestly can’t express how amazing this app is. I’ve always been on my phone for the majority of the day, but during this past year it’s become even more apparent how little I achieve whilst constantly browsing. This app is helping me stay focused, achieve more, and I’d encourage everyone struggling with productivity to download it ASAP. It’s a must have 😊 Thank you to the developers!
