Bought based on how great the App Store illustrations were. Really great and unique idea.

I like apps that make me smile while using them - this is one of that kind. Changing your habits is hard. This app can really help getting rid of your phone addiction. :) (beta user)

Everybody loves donuts.. and dogs ;) And so does my girlfriend! She needs to concentrate on upcoming exams (like me..damn it!) but ends up doing time-consuming and totally distracting stuff on her phone too often.. Not acceptable 🙅‍♂! (Sorry my love! ) WE ALL KNOW THIS PROBLEM 😾 (or someone who has it..)! Sometimes it's just hard to simply not use your phone and focus. This is why I made this App! Introducing: Donut Dog. Your new cute productivity companion. Whenever you want to accomplish something, use the Donut Dog App´s Donut Machine to feed your Focus! Yes, Focus with a capital "F". That's the name of the dog living on your phone from now on. Take good care of him! Wait for the features, it gets even better: • Be focused and get stuff done. Less stress, less anxiety! • Earn delicious looking donuts for every hour you don’t use your phone. Cure your phone addiction! • Achievements & streak bonuses: Earn special donuts for good behavior! • Daily challenges with special rewards • Earn coins and gems and spend them in the donut shop to unlock new donut packs or other gadgets • Cool stats: Track your focus time. See how many and which donuts you collected! • Earn XP, level up and battle your friends! • 2 session modes: Take a challenge with a preset time (countdown) or simply use the open end mode (stopwatch)! And for all the fellow devs: Github inspired streak calendar 😍 (yeah I really needed that!) To celebrate the launch on Product Hunt 😻, Donut Dog is 50% off for 1 month. Get it for 99 cents in the Apple App Store! That is nearly for free 🙃! *meow* ahhm..I meant *woof*! — BTW this is my first paid App. I worked for more than a year on it as a side project while attending university. Special thanks to @nir and @ryan for writing the hooked book. It inspired me a lot! An ANDROID version is in development and should not take too long. Join the waiting list and get notified: Please don’t forget: This is V.1! Many things can and will be added/improved. I would love to hear your feedback and read your bug reports. UI/UX/design expert or just really into it and feeling experimental? Join the TestFlight beta group -> pm me :D TLTR: buy it, try it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Video music composed by Orishlez from

I'm sold. One question – does it track my phone usage even when the app is closed?
PatrickMaker@justawebguy · Creator of Donut Dog App
@jijosunny glad to hear that🤓👍 not sure if I understand your question right. it just tracks the time of the machine running. However, I implemented a feature (beta) that detects if you do something else with your phone so the machine stops running. You can turn this feature on/off in the settings view

@justawebguy been using this app daily. Nice work! I've noticed that I haven't been receiving credit for the normal donuts that I have been earning in the machine via Focus + Challenges. Basic & Goals show 0/25 and 0/48
PatrickMaker@justawebguy · Creator of Donut Dog App
@godsgotvision thank you very much! Oh you mean the progress indicator for the donut Quests in the donut packs view? that is strange 🧐 I will look into that, thank you for your feedback!

@justawebguy sorry for the delay! Didn't get a notification about this... So, your tweak kind of worked. The donuts are now lighting up as I get them in the challenges. However, the overall progress bar is not being filled even though I have donuts. || I.e. Goals: Collect 48 Normal Donuts. I now have 2 normal donuts, but the overall progress bar says: 0/48. Does that make sense?

@godsgotvision first of all: did you download the latest update? It not only fixed that but you were mentioned ;) However: the update fixes the count just after the update. so all donuts from now on(!) will be counted. PS: how funny. I've read your book (in German), love Wim Hof ;) Huge fan by the way: Keep up the great work!
