AppBlock – Block Apps & Sites - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

MobileSoft, the company behind AppBlock, developed the first apps back in 2012. AppBlock was first in stores in 2015 and by then we already had several client projects that were successfully delivered.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

One of the most challenging aspects of developing AppBlock was ensuring that the app was user-friendly and easy to navigate. We wanted to make sure that users of all technical abilities could easily set up and customize their blocking preferences.

The interviewee, Mr. Šimon Vršanský, is in charge of marketing at AppBlock. The app's parent company MobileSoft s.r.o is a company exclusively devoted to the development of mobile applications for Android and iOS operating systems.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

One of my favorite apps is VOS Health, an app that helps with mental health. Then there's Fitify, which gets us moving in the office, and Spotify for music streaming. I love how these apps are simple to use, yet provide powerful functionality that helps me be more productive and organized in my personal and professional life.

How long have you been working on this app?

I have been working on AppBlock for over a year now, since its development started.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

When developing AppBlock, we had in mind the need of users to have more control over their time and focus, allowing them to block distracting websites and increase productivity. This was also a need of ours, when our phones increasingly distracted us from our work and took away our free time. So we actually addressed our needs first, and it soon became clear that millions of other people had the same problem.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I believe AppBlock stands out from similar apps on the market due to its customizable scheduling feature. Users can set specific times of the day when certain websites and apps will be blocked, giving them more control over their online habits and allowing them to focus on the task at hand.

Additionally, the app allows users to block websites based on keywords, providing an extra level of granularity when it comes to blocking unwanted content. I am particularly proud of the app's ease of use and the fact that users can easily customize their blocking preferences to suit their individual needs.

One of our most appreciated features is Strict Mode. During Strict Mode, users can completely block access to AppBlock and cannot adjust the blocking settings. This ensures that they actually adhere to their goals.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We improve the app based on user feedback. We already have a number of new features in the works, but we'll keep them as a surprise for our users.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

If you're new to AppBlock, we'd love for you to try out the app and see how it can help you stay focused and be more productive. We would love to hear your feedback and suggestions for future updates.

If you enjoy using AppBlock, we would also greatly appreciate it if you could share the app with your friends and colleagues who may also benefit from it.
