Android feature request - sync plan between desktop and mobile - jarvistheagilegoat - 06-02-2020

Sorry if this was requested before - couldn't find anything.

It'll be great if plans can be synced between desktop and mobile. On my Mac, I have a vast number of rules and blocked websites. It'll take me an hour (minimum) to copy and type everything into FocusMe Android. It's a large chunk of time I'd prefer not to spend. If syncing is too troublesome to implement anytime soon, at the very least we should be able to export and import text lists (of websites to block). That way, if I change phones or do a factory reset, I wouldn't need to enter everything from scratch.

Right now I only have a fraction of the websites (blocked on my laptop) also blocked on my new phone, simply because entering it all is so difficult. I'll get it done eventually, but I already had multiple instances of procrastinating on my phone because of this.

Hi Jarvis! Yes, this has been requested before and I believe our development team is already on it since there is a demand for this feature. We'll notify you here or via email once it's out! Smile

Yeah this would be excellent ? The biggest thing I'd hope to see is blocking adult content and enforcing safe search

How's the progress coming on this? Looking forward to this, most specifically being able to use my "Block Adult Sites" and "Unsafe Search Engines" plans, which are using regex. Is regex currently possible for the Android app? I haven't tried it yet.

I created a related feature request item here too: https://focusme.com/feature-requests/android-sync-plans-or-regex-presets/

Hello there! It's me again. [Image: smile.png]  We are still working on our Android version -- it's taking time as it's the entire version that we are improving. We'll absolutely let you know as soon it's available!

In the meantime, keep the requests coming in through the feature request page.

Stay safe!

Yes, this would be fantastic? Blocking pornographic content and enforcing safe search are the two most important things I'd want to see.

Hello, William. Couldn't agree more! We're looking into this and update accordingly. Cheers!

Yes, that would be amazing and versatile, to have control for example on Windows and Android at the same time. A principle of productivity mentions that we should have only one means of management. Smile

Hello,

Is there any update regarding this feature or, in general, regarding the Android version?

Thanks

Hello there! 

We've made a lot of improvements to our Android app which you can try and download here: focusme.com/download-links/

As for the syncing feature between computer and Android, it's been added to our future list of improvements but no current update yet due to resources and funds. 

We promise to update you guys once there's an update.

Sincerely,

Ryan
