App limits allow you to block apps automatically in the background once you reach a set limit. They work separately from your focus sessions to give you passive protection.
When you reach your time limit on certain apps or websites, they will be blocked for a duration you set.
Please note: App limits are cumulative: apps will be blocked when you spend a total of Xmin on either of the apps or websites you selected.
On Apple Screen Time App Limits, when you reach the limit, it will reset the next day. With Opal, instead of blocking apps for the remainder of the day, you can choose the specific amount of time you want to block apps for. It’s a lot easier to match with your real phone usage.
In Opal when app is blocked it’s a lot harder to ignore, you have to come back to Opal to make any changes. You also have an option to set up an app limit in a way that’s completely impossible to bypass. Choose your difficulty level.
