The idea is good, cross-platform block sessions. The app on phone is bearable, haven't used it much but it probably fulfills what it promised. But the experience on Windows really sucks. First, it's almost useless. It not only doesn't block you, it even doesn't work from the beginning if you don't do a bit of setting.

If you want to bypass the blocker, there are numerous effortless ways: use a proxy, switch to another browser, uninstall the addon from the browser, kill the process from task manager, or even just exit the program. It's just ridiculous. It doesn't even contribute anything and I will finally have to fallback to rely on my own willpower. Why do I need such a thing in this way?

Those problems of other functionalities and interface designs are not worth mentioning, comparing to these problems.

This app really need some improvements, if it's not completely unusable. The idea is great. But if you really want a helpful app, use cold turkey.

syncs for computer and mobile device! + could set multiple filter groups (and activate them separately + scheduling)

You can use the code "UPGRADENOW" to get 20% off, for a total of 20 bucks for an entire year, but I now want a refund at the time I am writing this?

Why? It doesn't have an Android app support now, and on their windows client it doesn't have URL exceptions like it is on Mac.

Other than that, I like how it performs and the UX, and the responsive customer service.

Will upgrade and rate 5 once those issues are addressed.

Freedom has Android support now, just checked. And the URL exceptions on Windows too.
