Kind of works, but deceiving

I got freedom to block apps on my iOS devices. When trying it out (after buying premium) I couldn’t get “block apps” to work at all and so I searched for a solution. I finally unearthed an article that says Freedom hasn’t been able to block apps since Aug ‘18. (It can restrict web access but not apps that don’t need the internet) I get that Apple made the change, not freedom, but why is the “block apps” option still there? I paid for premium mostly for an option that no longer works.

Hey there, the "block apps" option is a feature that turns on app blocking on all the other platforms (Mac, Windows, Android) where we support it. And you're right, the iOS version blocks traffic to apps, so it can't shut down an app like Calculator. This is a challenge we face as every platform/OS has different rules, but we're trying our best.

Please note that as of version 5.0, our iOS app has a VPN back that blocks traffic to apps. So if you enable it, it should get you there!

Does not work as advertised

I was a Premium user of a few years - simply let my subscription expire but the pp was basically 'as advertsed'. I recently suggested it to a pair of friends who then found out the ONLY app it blocks are individual website on Safari. None on Chrome. No apps. Not Facebook. Not Instagram. Not even the app store (which could be a nice workaround). Who is addicted to using Safari on their cell phone? I feel terrible that I suggested such a misleading app. I suppose that it doesn't promise to block apps, simply websites but really? Really? Really?

Edit - I've left another review for this app recently that is five stars. Not sure why it let me leave that instead of updating here but the app has improved much through the years (with customer service along with it). I probably will delete this review id possible.

This app was great. Then Apple killed it.

This app was wonderful for the first few months I had it: I could delete distracting apps and block access to the App Store, which made it impossible to reinstall them. Also could block any website I wanted in Chrome, my preferred browser. But I after I installed the latest iOS update, Freedom ceased to work entirely. Even when a session is supposedly running, I can still access my list of blocked sites in Chrome and Safari, and it seems impossible to block the App Store as well. So disappointing.
