Inspired by a well known SelfControl, it aims to provide a similar functionality on iOS.
Have you ever wasted your time on the Internet? Having trouble getting stuff done because of procrastination? Do you need more self control?
This app allows you to temporarily block distracting websites on Safari browser. You can unlock them again but it requires that you think twice before doing so: "Do I really need to browse funny cat pictures right now?". Optionally you can set a timer, not allowing you to unblock distracting websites until the time is up.
Getting rid of your wasteful browsing habits is as easy as downloading this app and adding your favorite time wasters list. A predefined list of potentially distracting websites is provided. More freedom and focus GUARANTEED.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app, could use two things to make it amazing
Works well. Not sure why you can’t set the timer to 24 hours (have to do 23 hours and 45 mins) but it does mirror the feature in the well known macOS SelfControl app. Please add landscape orientation on iPad, iCloud sync, and make a macOS version. That would be incredible!
Apps like these help all of us be more productive, keep it up!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for a nice review. I am looking forward to adding more features soon.
Amazing App But please...
Thank you for this incredible app. It is very effective at allowing you to block the websites that you don’t wish to visit for a certain period of time HOWEVER it would be incredible if you could increase the time limit! I will gladly pay for this app again if I could block certain websites up to days or even weeks!! Thank you and hope you update soon
Developer Response ,
Thanks for a nice review. I will add an extended blocking period up to a couple of days. Should be ready within a week. Have a good day.
A little bit more
I wish you could add a even stronger feature disallowing users from unlocking the web for a certain amount of time. Usually, I block distracting websites and then a coupe of hours later I disable the application. I think it would be more helpful for users who have hard time concentrating.
