Freedom – Internet Blocking Productivity Software

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

This is what it has come to:

Freedom is a simple productivity application that locks you away from the internet on Mac or Windows computers for up to eight hours at a time. At the end of your offline period, Freedom allows you back on the internet.

Freedom enforces freedom; you’ll need to reboot if you want to get back online while Freedom’s running. The hassle of rebooting means you’re less likely to cheat, and you’ll enjoy enhanced productivity.
