    Hello Everyone,

    Please allow me to announce here the availability of Detox Launcher.

    I believe that with a little help, everyone can develop a responsible smartphone habit - it is possible to combat smartphone addiction and help your children prevent smartphone dependence.

    Therefore...I made an app .

    Detox Launcher is a homescreen replacement that you can use to make individual apps only available at designated time period, 7 days of the week.
    It comes in 2 favours: AOSP JellyBean styled or AOSP KitKat+ styled.

    Check it out on Google Play:

    • Schedule your apps to be available only during a certain period of a day
    • Individual schedules for 7 days of the week
    • Disallow yourself from altering the scheduling while the app is unavailable
    • Constant feedback of app availability through dimming of icons (optional)
    • Easy-to-use (one screenshot below is all that's needed, hopefully)
    • Looks and works like the stock Android launcher

    Parental Mode:
    • Parents can set a passcode to disallow scheduling change

    Obligatory Screenshots:

    If you're interested, check it out and don't forget to leave a feedback here.

    Thanks for looking - I look forward to your questions!

    Thanks for the link! That sounds like a good idea. I'll keep this in mind when others ask about parental control apps!

    Thanks for the reply, you can post questions here, I'll be more than happy to answer.

    The app is not just for (or even primarily designed for) parental control - it's for those who believe they are on the verge of smartphone dependency but believe that a little self help will go a long way. Surely parental mode works, but it only works until your child learns how to circumvent it - as everything on Android - all draconian measures can be circumvented, somehow.
