    Free, easy to set up and very effective. If it could block apps too then it would be perfect.

    It's really hard to bypass Leechblock and it keeps you off distracting websites. Unfortunately, it doesn't do so for apps, which would be useful.

    Blocks exactly what you want it to block. I was afraid I'd need to disable Chrome on my device, but FocusMe even lets you block the specific websites that give you trouble.
