So for the past two days, I have been reseaching apps that limit your screentime. Wait, let me start at the beginning.
My productivity has been suffering. It’s horrible. I’ve been trying to figure out the problem all year! But then, on Wednesday, Facebook and Instagram were down. AND I WAS BEYOND PRODUCTIVE. So I checked my iPhone for the usage report and OMG. I’m ashamed to say how much time I spend on Facebook Instagram, text messages, Email and many others all day long. Last week, I had 46 hours on social networking apps alone. FORTY-SIX HOURS FRIENDS!!! So I decided I needed to do better. I set out to find apps that limit your screentime. Because I really need help.
I needed something to block social media activity so that I can get back to being productive,( for example, it took me much longer than it should have to write this post because I kept getting distracted by social media on my phone !) I spent all yesterday and this morning researching and I found 10 options that I think will work. Read all the way through to the end to find out which one I am using!

7.Off The Grid
This ap is for people who REALLY have trouble staying off their phones. Off The Grid COMPLETELY blocks your phone for any length of time you want. If you try to use your phone after you have activated the app, the app will charge your credit card $1 for each time you end your session early. YIKES.
Apps for your Computer IOS Only
8. Self Control
Self Control is only for IOS. I use this one personally on both my Desktop and my MacBook mainly to cut myself off of Facebook. You can use it to block access to websites, your email server, or anything else on the internet. It works by creating a list of blacklist sites and lets you choose a set amount of time to block. You cannot access what you blocked even if you restart your computer OR delete the application. It’s great.
