What Is Opal?

At the heart of Opal, is the drive to help others achieve their dreams. Opal is an innovative screen time management app that helps people take back control of their time and focus on what matters most to them.

It allows you to measure, understand, and manage your focus while blocking out distracting apps and websites. It also generates insightful focus reports and provides a community forum for users to connect with peers and share tips.

Who Is Opal For?

Opal is ideal for anyone who wants to reclaim custody of their attention and focus. It’s designed with all types of users in mind, from busy professionals who need to get work done, to students who need to stay on top of their studies.

How Opal Works

Easy and straightforward to use, Opal, is designed to take the guesswork out of screen time management. It also helps you identify how and when you use your devices and provides actionable insights on how to boost productivity and prevent burnout.

With Focus Score, measuring your focus level throughout the day is simple. 

From identifying time spent on certain apps to analysing your notifications, Focus Score allows you to pinpoint the distractions that are keeping you from reaching your goals. What's more, through the support of the community, you can identify which apps negatively or positively impact your focus. The community distributes ratings for each app and website, so you can easily identify what's helpful and what's not.

How Opal Is Different From Apple Screen Time

From tracking how long you use certain apps to setting time limits and blocking notifications, Apple Screen Time provides basic screen time management functions. However, that's where the similarities end.

Opal has much deeper features and tools, such as Focus Score, focus reports, goal tracking and community forums.

Opal, on the other hand, goes far beyond this by providing users with detailed reports and actionable insights, rewards, recurring focus sessions, reminders, and motivating leaderboards. It also has Deep Focus, where you must complete tasks for a specific period before accessing another app or website.

Plus, with full integration with iOS, you can still use all the features of Apple Screen Time, with the added benefit of Opal’s advanced screen time management capabilities.


Opal is available for iOS 16 and above offering users different plans, namely a Free Version, a Pro plan, and a Focus  Coaching Plan.

The Free version offers basic features and functionality, while the Pro version adds deeper features such as unlimited recurring sessions, whitelist mode, deep focus mode, and focus score with history for only $.8.29/ month.

The Focus Coaching plan is a one-on-one session with an Opal productivity expert who will help you find the best strategies to reach your goals.
