Introducing Lock Me Out:





Can't put your phone down? Are you addicted?

Lock Me Out is a powerful application that allows you to lock yourself out of your device for a chosen time period.

Features
-Quick lock buttons (15m, 30m, 1h, 2h, 3h).
-Lock until X time.
-Lock later from X - X time.
-Schedule regular daily lockouts (Monday - Sunday).
-Allow use of specific apps, lockout to lock screen, or total lockout.
-Usage monitor for screen-on time, number of unlocks, and unlock rate.
-Real-time notifications to warn you about your usage.
-Configurable automatic lockouts based on your usage.
-No ads!

You will still have access to the lock screen and its widgets, so you can still make emergency calls, answer calls, and use the camera.

Enjoy some organic, device-free, distraction-free time with Lock Me Out!

You may find a very similar app on the market with a similar name. That app is a blatant copy of this one with less functionality and more bugs. Lock Me Out is the original!

To uninstall, you must first toggle off "Device administrator" from within the app (on Android <7.1).

If you have an issue, please use the contact menu option from the app, or email contact@teqtic.com for support before leaving a negative review!

You must use your device's stock lock screen and not a third party replacement or else Lock Me Out will lock the screen as soon as you turn it on.

This app uses the Device Administrator permission. It is required so that Lock Me Out can lock the screen for you during your chosen lock out period.

Yes
On Nexus4 it is not possible to use camera, only emergency calls. Also you can see status bar but it is not possible to do anything with it like scroll down etc. e.g. for checking status of notifications like email (maybe intended).
Same with camera, it is possible to swipe to it but picture is black with keypad above it.
For less then 1$ nice app, for more than 1$....who knows...

What you can do from the lockscreen isn't set by the app. That's up to the ROM/lock screen you are using and the widgets available on it while locked.

Problem was non-default camera application. I have more apps so every time camera is started it asks which one should be used.
When phone is locked it is impossible to use camera due this behavior.
Choosing default camera app (use always, not once) fixes it

Would it be useful to add a password option, in addition to PIN?
