Phone Apps to Manage screen time
AppBlock: AppBlock does the task of blocking apps for a certain duration. To start off, you can create and name profiles which define the days and time for which they are active, along with the apps to be blocked.
Stay Focused: This app will help you stay focused while you’re studying and not get distracted by all the other apps on your smartphone. The app is capable of blocking all apps on your smartphone unless you whitelist them and it even allows you to set daily/hourly usage for apps, after which they’ll be blocked. The app also gives you daily insights on your usage patterns, which will help you figure out which apps you’re wasting the most time on. The app is quite useful if you often find yourself being distracted by social media apps like Instagram and is a must have for all students using an Android device.
** In case you’re using a Pixel device, you don’t need these apps as you get access to Google’s Digital Wellbeing app which does pretty much the same thing. iOS users also get similar functionality with Screen Time, however, there are no other third-party apps on the App Store that offer the same functionality.
