So with this app it is similar to stayfocused in terms of what it’s core functionality is. I hope to decrease time wasted for individuals on the internet. Current apps like stayfocused limit the amount of time you can spend on a website in any 24 hour time frame. However this is terribly inefficient as knowing you have 1 hour available on [url removed, login to view] is not going to stop you form using up that entire hour in 1 go.
That is where my idea comes into play. It is sort of like pomodori technique but in reverse. Whereas pomodori blocks distracting websites for specific time periods, but app would block distracting websites if you've been on that distracting website for too long in 1 go.
Example uses: Go to facebook and the app alerts me at specific intervals to let me know of the time I spent on the website in the current session as well as the time I have spent on the site total, and how much longer I have overall today in terms of sessions, not minutes. So I could specify to only allow me X number of minute interval access to [url removed, login to view] which can only be reset every X amount of minutes for a maximum of X sessions total in that day.
Another potential application of this is to change your habits, like if you have a bad habit to keep the gmail tab open all day like I do, it will also block me if I exceed X number of minutes in a current session. It should however save a draft before closing. Alternatively I could specify on custom domains specific rules to play on that specific domain. Like for Gmail I could specify that instead of closing the tab it just creates a chrome notification and a specific ringtone that would go off every time the max number of minutes was reached in the current session but yet you don't want the app to automatically cut you off the page.
This is not every specific of the app but you get the general idea. It’s a new kind of pomodori technique to change the way your neurochemistry is wired to essentially increase your focus and awareness when using the computer.
