Overall a great app

It has a good amount of features, and the UI is nice. The app has a locked mode, which prevents you from signing out from your account. Also, the app suggests you use a screen time passcode to prevent you from deleting the app. My main problem with the app is that like all apps, it can be bypassed. You can technically bypass the app, such as deleting the VPN (turning it off doesn’t work because it the VPN automatically turns on when needed) and disabling content blockers on safari. However, this is not really the app’s fault because this is the most it can do on Apple devices. I still like this app though and I think it’ll at least make me think twice before going off-task. If you truly want to block your device, screen time is the best option. (Although it doesn’t have the same features of this app, so you have to weigh in the options)

Developer Response ,

Hey there & thanks for taking the time to leave your review! We do require the VPN setting to be active for blocking to work properly, but we are continuously improving the app and hope to have more tools for helping you block content and stay productive. Thanks again!

Doesn’t “block” apps. Just stop refreshing.

I was doing the free trial of premium to try and figure out how to stop my smartphone addiction while still having access to my phone. I’m a Comp Sci student so I need access to tech and internet to do my work but Facebook and Reddit get in the way so I only need them blocked when I’m doing work at random hours.

I tried other things but the work arounds were so easy that I just always went with the work around. I thought this didn’t have that problem but apparently if you don’t leave the app open in the background it won’t block stuff. For apps like Facebook those launch with near infinite data so you can still go through a lot of the website when it’s blocked. I only have a couple phone games so I didn’t trouble shoot them but it looks like those distractions can’t be blocked since they don’t connect to the internet.

I have no idea if this is possible, but I was expecting something that once I set the timer, it made me physically incapable of starting apps I had put on a blocklist, and it’s was impossible to undo the timer. But if you’re looking for something like that this isn’t it

We’re sorry for the confusion. On iOS Freedom blocks network requests from applications, meaning that apps will still open, but not load new content. These blocks will also work across browsers like Safari and Chrome. Some apps like Instagram and Facebook use a type of connection that is harder to break, but we're working to improve that! If you need any more help, please send us a note at support@freedom.to and we’ll be happy to help

Seriously, it doesn’t work

In response to the developer’s response: No, the apps I tested were still fully functional. I guess it might work on an app that *must* connect to the internet to work, if that’s what you mean by refresh, but it certainly doesn’t stop me from using any apps that don’t need to be “refreshed” to work, like self-contained games or apps with previously downloaded content that I could still peruse. Suggestion: instead of saying it “blocks apps”, give a more accurate description of what your product actually does and which types of apps are likely to be affected.

There are scores of reviews on here saying the app blocking function doesn’t work on iPhones. The developers say “make sure you have the freedom app open in the background.” Check! “Make sure you’ve installed the app blocker.” Check, vpn running! And yet I have an app blocking session running and I can still access all my apps. So what am I missing? If you want to claim you have good customer service then actually check out these complaints further. And if the complaints are due to people missing a step during installation then you should improve your user interface.

The app works by blocking content that goes to your apps (and websites). So apps will open, they just won't refresh with new content. I'm sorry for the confusion!
Edit: That's correct, on iOS the blocker works by preventing the app from refreshing content. Thank you!
