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.

Currently: If I go to use other apps, Opal pops up with a notification wondering if I want to pause. Proposed solution: Provide the user alternatives or mini-dopamine hits so they don’t have to go cold turkey. This could look like a lot of really
Block Microsoft Teams and other work related apps
I would love to block these after business hours. Sometimes I will try to quickly check it after business hours and I'm always on for longer than I anticipated which cuts into family/personal time
