Space

Unhook yourself from addictive iOS apps

Space helps you get a moment of peace when you need it. We're not here to make you feel bad because it's not your fault: apps are designed to hook you.

Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
This is a clever tool you can use to replace the Twitter, Facebook, and other app icons on your homescreen. When tapped, it opens to a web browser to make you wait for a few seconds before the targeted app (e.g. Twitter) opens. It forces a slight pause and reflection before falling into habits.

Stop impulsive procrastination with this Chrome extension

Pavan Sethi- building things.
Block yourself from visiting certain websites. There are a lot of apps that do this but I like this one because instead of setting a timer, you add sites to a list and whenever you visit them, you get a notice that says "Shouldn't you be working?" and the guilt makes you get back to work.
