- (2021-05-18) Zildjian Amiel B. Payumo: I really love it, now I don't get distraction from other website
- (2019-06-24) Eva Clark: Once you set a time limit, you cannot turn it off, whether or not you finish your work.
- (2018-09-20) Eric Wenzke: Does what I expect it to do, besides for webmail.beuth-hochschule.de somehow it just won't block this site. The one thing I feel is missing is to schedule the activation, so that I won't have to active it myself everytime.
- (2018-09-13) ian wu: it doesn't restrict all the websites. i tried it for http://shellshock.io cargames.com and alot of others that didn't even restrict at all.
- (2018-09-05) Mj Booker: love it best for pranking right click on it say hide then it will not show just click on dots but what i would like if it says website crashed or something then it will make it it more belivable love it great job
- (2017-11-13) Sagi Ziv: works great, but I wish I could cancel the blockin also in time mode with password or something like that and I think it would be easier to just create allowed sites list and block sites that dose not appear on it. overall, it is a great idea
- (2017-09-17) Abhilash Baranwal: Fantastic. Absolutely lovely. I wish it provided some method so that it couldn't be disabled easily.
- (2017-07-14) Bruce C: There are so many extensions just like this one. One very important problem is that it is very easy to circumvent. All you have to do is right on the extension and remove it from chrome. I wonder if there's a way to stop me from doing that. Otherwise, great extension!
- (2017-06-19) Patrik Strausz: It is very useful however there's no way to override the blocking. Sometimes I need YouTube for my work, and the only way I could access YouTube during my work session was to uninstall this extension. So I did, and won't install again.
- (2017-03-18) Awesomevo: it is amazing! helps me focus on school and my tests! i would make it so that if you put the timer on you cant go to settings and change it so you CAN go on the blocked websites. it ruins the purpose. but i still think it is amazing
- (2017-02-10) Phi Leigh: Although i have only started using this app a few days ago, i feel like it can really help improve my focus on studies etc.
- (2017-02-09) Sidharth Bhatia: Great tool
- (2018-08-06, v:1.3) Sean Adcroft: To do list
I'd like to see you add a to do list feature so I can plan my work ahead of time. Thanks!
- (2018-04-08, v:1.3) Sebastiaan Seeger: Adding a no shopping setting
So i really love you exctention only have 2 problems: I cant listen to a studymix on youtube, but that is fixable. The other is that besides social media a huge destraction of me is shopping/looking for thing i could buy. I tried to add some webshops to the banned list but i never could add enought, idk if it is possible to write code that recognizes webshops or something. anyways Great App
- (2017-09-26, v:1.3) Ashley Tuttle: blocking all sites except....
Can I block all sites except a save list for a proscrible time/scedue? if so how?
- (2017-03-18, v:1.1) Awesomevo: settings
i would make it so that if you put the timer on you cant go to settings and change it so you CAN go on the blocked websites. it ruins the purpose.
- (2017-01-26, v:1.1) App breaks ShipStation.com
Hi, Your extension breaks shipstation.com. Several buttons stop working whenever the extension is active: https://youtu.be/_ocP2HuCpUk What can we do to fix this? It would mean a lot. I can send over login info so you can investigate. Just send me an email at [email protected]
- (2016-01-14, v:1.0) Gilliam Flebus: Extra features
- Change symbol when Focus.me is active - Export list of websites - Remove 'Stop' button
