Hey, Makers! I found myself wanting a few hours of focus work, but turning DND on and off requires too many steps, so I wouldn't really do it. And when I did, I usually forgot to turn it off until the next day, when the system does it automatically. And that's how DND Me came to be. Hope you'll like it!

@rolandleth hey I really like this. Regardless of what others have said, you've created a great product to simplify the scheduling which is what I think is the power behind it. It's also nice to have a more specific indicator that you have notifications turned off. As a user, it'd be nice to have a "custom" option. Sometimes I just want DND on/off for 10 to 20 minutes while I record a screencast. I often forget to manually turn it back on, and miss important notifications.
@gregstone14 Hey, happy to hear you like it! I thought of a custom time setting and it’s still in the plan, I just don’t know when I’ll get to it. I wanted it to be as simple as possible, maybe add a 30 min option, as that’d be super easy.

@rolandleth a 30 minute options would be on par👌
@gregstone14 Keep an eye out for the next version 💪🏻
You can also turn on DND by option-clicking the Notifications icon in the menu bar.

@zacwest Yupp, I didn't know that 🙈 Scheduling is still not easy to do, though.

Why install an app when you can option-click on Notification Center icon in the menu bar to frictionlessly toggle DND? (I get that this app offers fine-grained control of duration of DND, but still.) The iconography is wrong – the “crossed bell” icon means “silent” or “sound off” on all Apple platforms.

Pros:

Cons:

Thanks for the feedback! I had no idea you can option-click the NC icon 🙃 For me, the major advantage is the setting of the duration, especially if you usually forget to disable it (as I do). I specifically chose this icon since I think it's more recognizable than the moon. Generally, the icon can also mean "Notifications off", representing "do not disturb me", the app's name. But you're right, the moon would've been a "correct" choice.

Is there any demo/trial available?
@bms8197 Initially there was none, because what’s in the screenshots is all the app does: click “x hours”, DND gets activated, DND Me deactivates it after x hours. But I activated a 7-day trial just now. Hopefully it works properly, as I haven’t tested it and I’m not home right now. Let me know how it goes!

@rolandleth No ideea how to get the app since it requires to buy in order to download.... So I don't really see how that trial works ;)
@bms8197 Oops. There’s a direct download link now.
Would love a custom option as well. Let me choose for how long I don't want to be disturbed... Also would love a pomodoro option. Turn DND for 25 minutes at a time. I can't stay one hour without checking stuff, etc
