AppBlock helps students focus on their studies by blocking apps that distract people, like Facebook and WhatsApp. The app allows the creation of "lock profiles", which can work with different criteria. For example, it is possible to block an app only when it is in a certain location, or else when it is accessing a specific Wi-Fi network. Another useful modality for students is the blocking of apps in predetermined time bands. Profiles can block more than one application simultaneously.
