We like to think that Freedom is best when used in combination with other things. It’s not just about blocking digital distractions, but rather what you do once those distractions are blocked. With Freedom as your internet and app blocker, apps and tools like Todoist, Pocket, Sortd, and Calendly can help you better organize, sort, plan, and prioritize so that you can make the most of your time. With focus and clarity to think, imagine what you can accomplish!
Here are some of our favorite apps to pair with the distraction-blocking power of Freedom for an enhanced and optimized working experience.
Todoist is an elegant task manager that allows you to simplify your goals, tasks, and projects into actionable lists. With Todoist, you can easily break down projects into manageable tasks, share and collaborate on lists with others, and visualize your progress and productivity.

Paste is an extension for Slack that allows users to share, review, and organize work visually.

Calendly is a productivity app that helps you schedule meetings and appointments without the back-and-forth emails. It’s simple – set your availability preferences, get a link to your schedule that you can share over email or embed on your site, and let your colleagues, friends, and family pick a time that works for both of you. Calendly integrates with your calendars, apps, and even accounts for timezone differences, so setting up meetings has never been easier.
