Very good app

I downloaded this app after seeing it on instagram, ironically to control my instagram usage. I would open up instagram anytime I had a few minutes of free time, or get stuck scrolling through reels for a couple of hours. I’ve tried blocking apps like this before, but it was easy to just turn the blocker off, which isn’t the case here. What I really like about clear space is that I can choose the amount of time to spend on the blocked app, and it forces me to pause and think for a second before opening it. Clear space has helped me use instagram with intention, rather than just opening it to waste a bunch of time. But what caused me to write this review was the response time of the developer (or founder? Not sure). I was experiencing a problem with the app and sent a message about the error, and received a response about it within an hour, with a link to update the app. The version history on the App Store said the update was posted “just now”… as in the creators behind this app saw my problem and immediately fixed it. I was very impressed! If I had more apps I needed to block, I would definitely get the membership.

Really really recommend

I downloaded this app in hope of reducing my screen time and reliance on scrolling through social media. I have tried other apps or even timers/limits built within the app with no success. I have always found ways to get back into the app and scroll for another couple of hours. But somehow this app has been the winner for me. I set 4, 10 minute sessions of my social media apps which is still plenty of time to disassociate from my day-to-day life but still feel updated and involved in social media. Overtime I have found that sometimes I don’t even use up all of my allotted time on the apps because A. I have become less reliant, B. I become bored on the app more easily and C. I have been in a situation where I cannot wait for the breathing exercise and quote to go through to get into the app. Overall, this app as been a life, social, brain, and time-saver for me. I always recommend it and will continue to as well.

My screen time has gone from about 16 hours a day too 2

As a teenager struggling with screen time management this app has significantly improved my screen time challenging me to keep up a streak and limit my screen time I find that each week that I use this at my screen time seems to go lower and lower until the point of almost no interest at all in any of the apps, I would previously spend anywhere from 10 to 16 hours a day on procrastination used to be a terrible issue for me, not allowing me to get done anything including schoolwork, or hang out with friends and family over the staff has definitely helped me make a change and see that change in my life I would highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to start taking the steps to taking back their life from a screen!!
