The price listed above ($129US) is actually the price of the 'Forever' plan, not the annual subscription. Their forever plan is currently (23rd Sept, 2021) half price at $64.50 (see https://freedom.to/upgrade). From a user who used to pay the annual subscription, but just bought the Forever plan,.

A software blocking webseites and applications is called "Freedom"? This will leave me confused for the rest of the day.

This is a great app. When I really need to focus, but keep getting distracted, I'll put it on for 20 minutes or half an hour of focus time. The great thing is that it syncs to all my devices, so it'll turn the internet off (except for those sites I've whitelisted) on both my Mac and my iPhone. It can also block desktop apps. It's not a failsafe, but it often helps me get started when I'm struggling with distraction.

Has Freedom become recently web based?
If so, I will start looking elsewhere.

I used this with pretty good success for about a year. It was cheap/free at the time (I don't recall.) Now it's $10, that seems too steep.

Sorry, but why on earth would you pay for this? This is mind-boggling! Please consider sending a $4.99 donation to some charitable organization instead. Again, I apologize if anyone is offended by my remarks. Xen

$4.99 wuld be a fairer price, imho. Also, recent update failed to make it retina display friendly. Other than that, the app does its simple task well.

I own Freedom and love the concept behind it. However, I also want the opposite of this - where, for example, I can set myself a twenty minute window to surf the internet and at the end of the twenty minutes my internet gets cut off. Anyone know if this is possible?

Good plan, but not really suitable for a webdesigner. I want my freedom too (and use Concentrate..)

I really like the concept behind this app. The one thing it needs to add to get 5 stars from me is the ability to just run it as a system preference or menubar app.

Works as advertised. Anything more complicated and the procrastinators would spend an hour fiddling with it instead of working!

This has the potential to be a very useful program, but its fundamental operational principles are not well-documented: when you specify the amount of time you want to be internet-free, you are not specifying a countdown, but rather the actual amount of time your computer will be used before networking is restored. In other words, if it is 2pm when you specify 2 hours, your computer will only have networking restored at 4pm if you've actually used your computer for 2 hours during that time. Since sleep does not count toward computer usage, you never know exactly when networking will return. When I inquired about this, the developer replied that this was a design decision and would not be changed. The program should accommodate both the current approach and a simpler one, where the user specifies a time interval during which networking isn't available (say 2-4pm). Since the developer is not responsive to this need, I would not contribute money this project.

I think this could be useful with kids..."No internet till homework is done!" Maybe it needs to go up to 8 or 9 hours so parents can say "No internet while I'm gone," since it's nice to be able to supervise internet use.

This only temporarily affects networking and doesn't permanently alter any files, does it?

Fantastic idea. A bit flakey in its implementation (better to have a count down till when the lock is removed). But lots of psych data supports the idea that tiny blocks can change behavior significantly.
