Blacklist - Block Distractions & Stay Focused


What is Blacklist?

Blacklist lets you block distracting websites for a certain amount of time. By preventing you from accessing sites that would interrupt your work (like news sites or social media), Blacklist helps you to stay focused on the important things. Based on the Safari Content Blocking technology introduced in iOS 9, Blacklist lets you define a set of rules (using regular expressions) that specify which websites should be blocked.


Building a Positive Habit

Blacklist helps you to check distracting websites less often by blocking access to them. This enables you to build a positive habit of concentrating on important things for a certain duration, which will improve the quality of your work and give you a sense of accomplishment every day.


Always in Sync. Everywhere.

 Blacklist syncs your list of blocked websites and your current block session across all your devices using iCloud. With iCloud Push, your changes will appear on all your other devices in seconds. And with Handoff, switching devices is as easy as possible. 


At a Glance. At Your Wrist.

Blacklist offers a native watchOS 2 app that shows the remaining time and lets you start or stop a blocking session. Simply scroll down or firmly press the display to interact with the blocker.

Additionally, a Blacklist Complication is available for every watch face, so you can always see how much time is left.
