I enjoy Opal a lot! Fantastic job developers! I do have a quick question though, would it at all be possible to add in an option for a “one-time exception” in deep focus (with the emphasis on one-time) for no more than 15 minutes? I love using deep focus and do want those apps to be blocked but sometimes (unpredictably), I find myself needing access to an app I set as blocked for 5-10 minutes during deep focus to the point where I have to uninstall opal to get around it. Then, when I reinstall opal, my normal settings aren’t there and I have to reprogram it = a lot of not focusing before I get around to it. I know the “normal” focus mode exists but unfortunately, I do not yet have a will of steel and the wait of one minute between being able to fifteen minute breaks doesn’t deter me
Would love a feature for a 10 minute twitter break ever 3x times a work day. Hard to limited apps for a whole work day right off the bat, think this would be a way to ween off distractions x. Allow rewards for fewer breaks used. Also could make them “earned” by not using distraction app for 2 hours, get 10 minutes of use
During my sessions that is not in “deep focus”, I allow myself to have breaks. But, sometimes I have tooo many breaks. It would be great to limit the the amount of break time I can have in a session. So let’s say the session is 6 hours, I would love to customize that I am only allowed to have 30 minutes of breaktime.
