🔧 How does it work?
As long as you launch the app through the flow, it allows you to open it 3 times per day. Before opening the app, you'll have to confirm that you want to waste your time. You'll see how much time you have already wasted as well.

💡 How can it be useful?
Of course, it won't block a chosen app at all. This flow uses blocks that don't need root and are officially supported.

However, with this flow you can break a destructive habit of compulsive wasting time on social media or news readers. By forcing you to confirm your choice, you have one more chance to to make a thoughtful decision. It's all about playing with your brain.

If your launcher supports hiding apps and customizing icons (like Nova does), you can hide the original app and get the widget with the app's icon and name. And this way make it harder to cheat.

If you want to spend less time on unproductive consumption or entertainment, give it a try. Good luck!
