Missing Apple default apps…

I love the concept of this app. I’m a lifetime subscriber and supporter. It’s truly helped me create a healthier relationship with my phone (as weird as that sounds). But it’s missing some basic functionality like having Apple’s default apps built into the app instead of having to use shortcuts. Example: Calculator, Phone, and Clock. The developer said to use URL scheme but there’s nothing available on the internet (as far as I could find) for those. So, we’re stuck using shortcuts which makes the app feel slow and kluge. I think adding more default apps should be a priority over more fonts and colors.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for reaching out to us! We are continuously adding new apps to our list. Recently, we've introduced a URL Schemes feature, making it easier for you to add your favorite apps personally. You can do this by clicking the '+' sign, selecting 'Not listed', and then opting for 'URL Scheme'.

We will make sure to highlight these kinds of updates in our "What's New" section going forward - great feedback. If you have any more ideas or need a direct response, please don't hesitate to drop us an email at

An app that cares about our digital wellbeing

This might be my first ever app review. This app is amazing. It uses the “out of sight, out of mind” approach by offering a minimalist layout that is functional and effective. I set this up to turn my phone into more of a utility phone and it almost makes me wonder why I bought an iPhone 15 since my screen time has drastically dropped. I have been using this app since my iPhone SE days. Which brings me to the point about how awesome the developer(s) are! When I set up this app on my brand new iPhone 15, I noticed there was a glitch with setting up my Google Tasks Blank. I was pretty bummed and emailed the developer thinking it might take months until it gets resolved, however I got a reply within the next hour and the issue was fixed almost instantly. That dedication and professionalism is top tier! Since that interaction I paid for the full service and am a huge fan. The only con of this app is there’s still plenty apps that need some support, but the most popular are already optimized for blank and the library has been expanding. Do not sleep on this app!

Best app for digital minimalism.

This app is everything I’ve been looking for and it’s working great! Anything that makes my phone less distracting is ideal. The shortcuts work well and it looks fantastic.

Previously, I had used this app while still keeping all my distracting apps (social media, shopping, etc) downloaded on my phone and just out-of-sight in my App Library. That worked well for a bit to reduce distractions, but the app alone wasn’t enough to reduce how addicting my phone can be. Since realizing that, I’ve deleted all shopping, entertainment, and non-work related social media apps from phone. I’ve turned on the “reduce motion”, “greyscale”, and “reduced white point” settings on my phone and it’s made a massive difference! I just ordered a matte tempered glass screen protector to help with the overall glare/intensity of the phone screen. I hope that’ll be the final piece to my “setup”!

This app has been incredibly helpful in turning my phone back into a device that works as a tool, not an entertainment device. I can’t recommend it enough.
