Self Control

SelfControl app

Don’t have enough self control to keep yourself away from those pesky distractors? No fear! Now you can download it for only $0.00! Yes, that’s right, $0.00! What a bargain!



Anything you put on your blacklist will be blocked. Recommended for Tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Tetris, etc. Maybe if you’re a compulsive email checker you’ll want to block that briefly while you’re working too.



The only available websites will be the ones on this list. This could be a little risky though, for example if you finish your work early and would like to access other websites.


You can choose to set it anywhere from 15 minutes to a whole 24 hours. You can try setting the timer at intervals to allow time for breaks, like a 15 minute break after every 45 minutes of work, or a 5 minute break after every 25 minutes of work.



Once SelfControl starts running, there’s no stopping it. Quitting the app, restarting your computer, changing the time on your computer… Trust me, I’ve tried.
