Apps like social media use powerful psychological tricks to make you unable to stay away from them for too long. Burnout Buddy blocks these apps when you don't want to use them to help you break free and heal their impact on your mental health.

Screen Time with no snoozing

Burnout Buddy is stronger than your iPhone's native Screen Time controls. Designed specifically with social media addiction and unhealthy work habits in mind, it offers a wider variety of blocking mechanisms and allows you to be extremely specific regarding how access to a specific group of apps and websites should be restricted.

If you already use Burnout Buddy, keep an eye out for updates that add even more blocking mechanisms and customization points!

Completely private

Everything you do with Burnout Buddy is stored locally on your device. We have no idea what you have installed on your phone and wouldn't be able to know even if we wanted to. All information regarding the content installed on your phone is made anonymous by your iPhone and is accessible by Burnout Buddy only in the form of anonymous identifiers.
