Something I'd Recommend
I've been using the app for a while now, and I've found it to be very helpful since I tend to be on my phone longer than I want to/should be. There's not a lot of things for me to critique, but there's a problem I've had with the Unplugged app for a while now. The app works just like it's supposed to for the most part. But, sometimes I turn on Airplane Mode before opening the app, and the app doesn't seem to register correctly and thinks Airplane Mode is on when I switch Airplane Mode back off. Other times, I turn Airplane Mode before opening the app, and Unplugged freezes. That scenario forces me to turn off airplane mode and close both windows for my iPhone's Settings and the Unplugged app. Other than that, there's not much to say, though I personally think it'd be helpful for users to be able see their personal best (the longest amount of time they've been off their phone while using Unplugged). I also think it'd be nice to be able to track day-to-day progress so that users can see how well they're doing each time they use the app. mount of time they've been off their phone).

Good. Could be better
This app is useful to me. On iphone, this app is the best I've seen in this category. When I was over on Samsung, however, there was an app called self control that actually blocked the use of selected apps. I could not bypass the block until the time set was up. I loved it. It really helped me to focus. This one is good but I wish there were more options. Specifically I would like to see this app allow me to choose those addictive apps that distracted me like various social media, websites and games that I can block for a selected period of time. Also an option for receiving calls or blocking calls
I love this app. I have a nasty habit of putting off work with the phone, and having this is going a long way towards helping me break it. Simple, lightweight, and effective.
I do sometimes wish it didn't have to be in airplane mode, as it limits when I can use it (it's just not practical sometimes to be out of phone communication -- especially when you have a kid.) But I suspect that's a limitation Apple, not the app creators, makes necessary. Overall a helpful, simple little app that makes my phone back into a tool instead of a toy.
