What’s New

Version 2.1.6

In this latest Focus Lock update, we’ve added a much-anticipated whitelist feature. Instead of selecting which apps to block, you can now block ALL apps and whitelist only the apps you want to have access to. This makes it easier to quickly select the apps you want to use during a Focus Lock session.

Isn’t working anymore

This was really helping me, but it’s no longer working. I’m honestly very sad about it because it’s the only thing I’ve found to really help me stay focused outside of my phone.

The app is fully updated, the settings are correct in my phone, and my usual process of deleting and redownloading the app is no longer working either. Very frustrating to pay for an app that doesn’t even work. Heads up to anyone that is considering buying the annual or lifetime fee, I can’t even find a customer service email online.
