Focus mode in ActionDash allows you to keep away from wasting time from selected apps. This new update to ActionDash allows you to schedule focus mode and activate/ deactivate automatically as per your wish. When you try to open any blocked app, ActionDash will show stats instead of a meme. You can still turn on the meme, though if you want. For users of Action Launcher, blocked apps were already grayed out. Now, the app shortcut menu lists the reason (focus mode rule) for the block. For best results, you’ll need Action Launcher v43.
