Is this affiliated with SelfControl for Mac? That's my favorite desktop app - it's permanently on. I'm writing this comment from inside a virtual machine. (I was posting something on PH, so I really needed it.)

@_vojto no but I also keep using it all the time and wanted to have a similar soft for an iPhone. Btw. you can always edit "slash etc slash hosts" (sorry but ph xss protection does not let me input it normally :p )

Looks awesome! Is it open source?

Hello Hunters! My second submission. It will be free of charge today so that you can check it out. It is a very simple iOS app, you can use to block distracting websites. I developed it because I did not like alternative options available in the AppStore. You simply add a list of distracting websites and then you can no longer browse them on Safari. Due to iOS restrictions, you can disable the blockage by digging through Safari settings. However since I started using Self Control, I managed to eliminate my habit of mindlessly checking whether internet cats are still funny. Sorry Glasshole Kitty! ;)

Been using the Mac version for ages, have been using an ad blocker as workaround, this looks like a great replacement! Nicely done! 👊🏻
