Add my own Website and Apps
Ability to add my own apps and websites to the blocklist.
A desktop app for Opal 🖥️
Would love to use Opal on my Mac as well so it's easier to stay indistracted at work too.
⏱ Time Limit / Budget use of distracting apps
Hi! Love the idea of this app and that you’re people-focused and not selling our data. I’m very specifically looking for an app that will let me set app time limits within a schedule. My issue with social media is not just that I lose track of time,
Can't believe this hasn't been added
Add Games apps
It would be interesting to have a section with all games apps to turn off. Personally, it would be lichess or chess.com.
Create a Shopping category for easy blocking
I'm not the only one who wastes time window shopping on Amazon, am I? Apps in the category could be Amazon, Etsy, Sephora, ThredUP, etc. I'm sure there are many more but those are the ones I get stuck on and would love to block when needed.
I would like to be able to turn on block all apps but whitelist a handful of apps that I use specifically for productive work during study sessions.
block facebook but not messenger

Blocking iMessage, Mail
50% of my distraction comes from notifications from iMessage. I would love Opal more than I do if there way a way to halt replies while I am in a session.
🔔 Batch all notifications

Opal for Android 🤖
Give our Android users some love!
🙅♀️ Automatically start Opal if I use distracting apps X times
Allow me to set usage specific triggers such as "if I open facebook 3 times in an hour, start Opal' or "if I use facebook before 10am" ( service x times in x hours). Start a session etc and then monitor the next x hours for improvements?
Offer a monthly plan for $9.99
I would go pro in a nanosecond if there was a monthly plan. It would offer us a way to afford the fee and you would have a more forseable revenue plus make an extra $20 a year from monthly subscribers. Also the suggestions page is the greatest thing
Staying accountable with friends 🤝
I'd love to know if my friends are meeting their time saving goals for the day and motivate each other to hit our goals, similar to what Apple does with the activity rings on Apple Watch.
