BlackOut: Stay Focused and Block Distractions/Beat Cell Phone Addiction/Mobile Phone Addiction
Have you ever felt like you need to take a break from your phone? Or that you suffer from cell phone addiction? Or that you also suffer from 'screen addiction'? Do you lack the ability to stay focused lately? Or maybe your phone is affecting your sleeping patterns, or your job? Maybe quitting cold turkey can be really hard too.
While developing/maintaining Detox(another app that helps users stay focused) we got a lot of reviews and emails from users saying they wanted an app where they could specify a time frame that they would not be able to use their smartphone for. That’s where the idea for BlackOut originally came from. The concept is really simple, you just open the app and select a starting time, finishing time and days of the week then activate the time slot. During the period and days you select your phone will dissuade you from using it until the time period ends. 
• Open the app, make sure you accept the required overlay permission
• Tap the floating plus icon
• Select a start time
• Select a finish time
• Select the day/s of the week you want the app to operate for(can be everyday)
• Activate by turning the switch on in the list.
• You can register up to 3 different time frames of up to 4 hours(each) 
• A simple way to help you beat phone addiction or get better sleep.
• Stay focused and get more done.
• Stops you from using your phone during a specified time frame.
• You can select the days that the app will operate too, you could set it to only weekdays if that fits your schedule.
• Registering multiple time slots is possible(unlimited for premium users)
• You can make emergency calls
• Premium users can receive calls easily too
• Time slots that overlap two days(premium
• White list functionality(premium)
- People trying to beat cell phone addiction/screen addiction
- Students or workers that want to block out distractions
- People who are snubbing their loved ones
- People that want to stay focused and need an extra push
- People who want to reduce their screen time
- People who feel that have become anti-social because of their smart phone habits
- People who are scared they might have nomophobia
If you're new and having issues with BlackOut there are a few things to keep in mind:
• You need to set the time in 24 hour format(Ex. 11pm should be set as 23:00).
• BlackOut isn't always perfectly on time, it can be a couple of minutes late. This is to conserve battery. With this in mind there is not really any point setting a time slot for only a small period like 3 minutes because there is a chance it won't activate for such a short period of time.  
• If you are using a phone that has some kind of battery saver(STAMINA mode etc.) you will need to turn it off for BlackOut to be properly functional.
• If you are using a phone that has Doze you might need to turn Doze off for BlackOut. You can do this from your settings app.
• If your phone has some kind of white list for protected apps(Huawei etc), you will most likely need to add BlackOut to this list.
• If you're still having issues feel free to email us at [email protected] for help with troubleshooting.

    The app is very good and it's very useful in controlling my Phone Addiction. Even, when I reboot it is still is activation. But, I have a found easy loophole, where if I click the notification setting in the lock screen, the setting opens where I can disable the permission given thereby this stops working immediately. Please fix the issue.

    It works pretty well. It takes a while to start up when I turn on my phone (though this can be useful in an emergency where I need a blocked app). More importantly that fairly often a whitelisted app will be blocked and I need to restart my phone in order to access it. Other than that it's worked wonders for me.

    New user wouldn't save my selection. As with most apps it is assumed that the customer is aware of words and phrases. Instruction is inadequate

    Could be really good. It almost completely blocks your phone until the block ends, but can be bypassed by just restarting your phone, or at least my phone. I really liked this app until I found the bypass. If this got fixed it would probably be the best productivity app out there. It could also have more features like location based blocking or usage time based blocking

    App is good but easily uninstallable When enabled it actually blocks everything, so it is great for people who have phone addiction. However, I restarted my phone during the blackout session and to my surprise, the blackout wasnt automatically enabled. I further tested this loophole by uninstalling the app and it actually did. This is a major drawback of the app, as an addict would use such tricks to gain the access to the phone. This would defeat the purpose of the app.

    I have set three time periods for blackout but the app doesn't lock my phone during those time periods on its own. Only when I open the app and again reset the time it works which is pointless. Also when I edit the preset time again the start time and end time of blackout period are both same. So how will it work? Please correct it.

    The app hasnt been automatically starting for me*** i have to intentionally click it to have it start when I need it to put me off from using it late at night. Neverthelss, My favorite kind of an app. Simple and to the point. It does the only and everything i need it to do: block me from accessing my phone during a set time. There is a loophole but if you use it, thats on you.
