Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good, but one big glitch
This app is exactly what the doctor ordered. A great interface with all the tools and flexibility that I need. When Freedom is running, it works like a dream.
There's a glitch, however, that heavily impacts it's utility for me. I have Freedom set with regular "sessions" that are supposed to automatically run so that it blocks certain apps and websites at fixed times every workday. Unfortunately, those sessions don't start automatically like they're supposed to UNTIL I open the app and navigate to the "sessions" page. Then, if it's during one of the preset hours, it will click on and start blocking. But until I actually navigate to the page, Freedom doesn't update its status to turn the session on. The same is true at the end of a session: it continues to block websites even after the preset session has ended until I open the app and navigate to the "sessions" page.
FWIW, I'm using it on an iPad Air 2 with iOS 10.
EDIT: I see on the website that this is a known problem, and the developers are blaming Apple. I guess when the app is running in the background, the OS won't let it update with the servers. And now that I think about it, my mail apps seem to have the same problems updating when they're running in the background. Hopefully iOS 11 will solve this.
I’ve been a premium subscriber to this app for three years now. At first it was great and blocked everything. Then, once Facebook and IG got smart, they changed their apps to not be blocked by the Freedom app. Two years ago I cancelled my subscription through iTunes... but Freedom keeps charging me for it! I got charged again today for a third year for an app that doesn’t block Facebook and Instagram. There literally is no way to unsubscribe from this thing. I contacted Freedom support which pointed me to get a refund through iTunes, which Freedom is a third party app and bills you outside of iTunes so you have to get a refund through Freedom itself.
Please don’t download this and waste your money. Seriously. I wish I had my $29/year (x3 so far... maybe x60 by the time I die if I can’t get this thing cancelled) to donate towards a local charity or something meaningful. Just put your phone down and not waste money on this app.
Huge improvement - must have
I subscribed to this years ago though let it lapse because it had a few areas that need improvement. They've improved and I've now subscribed forever. This is not really an app blocker for your cell phone (because Apple doesn't permit such things) but you can effectively control block settings on your computers - good for being nice to your future self.
