MATH, LANGUAGES, HISTORY: WHATEVER THE SUBJECT, THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

Freedom is a self-control app that restricts users’ access to other features of their phones or computers during study sessions. The app allows users to customize a list of distractions, such as the internet, social media, and other apps, and then blocks them during the user-determined timeframe. Once the user begins the study session, he or she will not be able to access anything listed as a distraction, forcing them to be productive.
