I use the app with a 2 minute blocker, meaning it blocks TikTok, YouTube etc until I wait on Opal for two mins, then I get a 15 minute break. Absolutely lifechanging. Thanks to the creators of this app!
Great app! Even the free version helps you a lot!!!
Good app, but it’s annoying that we need to request apps’s productive scores to be added through a forum. Why not include every app on our phone automatically and let us choose whether or not each one is productive or not? Seems like the most reasonable solution to me.
Very good but need to decrease price if you want customers to enroll themselves - thanks!!
i’ve been using opal for a while now and although my self control is bad, the app does help manage, take notice, and work on limiting my screen time. :)
I originally thought this app is exactly what i’ve been looking for. I wanted an app that forced me to not use those certain apps because of my adhd and apples screen time has bypasses. I found out you can just bypass the deep focus sessions by deleting the app or turning off allow screen functions. It’s a good reminder to not use your phone but it doesn’t help much more than that.

Really love this app. Helps me control my social media urges when I know it ain’t helpin nothing.
On ios this app keeps adding sites/apps to block over and over even when you uncheck them
This app has changed my life! It has allowed me to take back control of my time and set limits on social media. No more mindless scrolling. I’ve told all of my friends about Opal! I love this app!
