⏱ Time Limit / Budget use of distracting apps#114

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, but also that I have poor impulse control, so if I give myself a limit of 1 hour of Instagram a day, I’ll use it all in one sitting. I want to be able to set a schedule that says from 7a-10a, I have a 15 minute Instagram limit, and from 10a-6pm, I have a 30 minute Instagram limit. There was a website extension for chrome WasteNoTime that allows you to do this which was great for the world before smart phones, but I haven’t been able to find a solution that can do the same for apps. Do you have any intention of adding this feature or something similar? Thanks! Lara

This exact reason impulse control and everything is why I have downloaded 10 apps like Opal over the past 3 weeks. Nothing is out there for phones but you can find a bunch of stuff for Mac or PC.

Looking forward to this. I had this feature in another app in android but haven’t found a similar function with iOS. It was really useful

“Truthfully the only thing I’d love to have (more of a feature idea) is to have “set” time limits for certain apps. Let’s say I have a focus block from 4p - 6p each night. I’d love to have a middle ground where I could say “I only want to be on instagram for a total of 10 mins in that 2 hour span”. Right now, to my knowledge, I can just block it and then go request a break to access IG, but would love to set a timeline on some time blocks where i’m okay with being on socials, but don’t want to be on there for hours”
