Because of the coronavirus pandemic, many of us are working from home more, or even for the first time.
And if you’re living with others who are trying to get their work done as well, that can sometimes lead to some awkward situations.
Just when you’re focusing on work, someone tries to bother you.
The useful app Oh Bother wants to help avoid that situation.
Getting started is simple. You’ll set your status as botherable or unbotherable.
You can also set a timer and provide more information like “on a conference call.”
Using iCloud sync, everyone in the house using the app can also see your status and vice versa. It’s also possible to get a notification when a housemate status changes.
While the app is definitely simple, it’s a great way to help better manage juggling work and life while at home.
Oh Bother is designed for the iPhone and can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
There are a few in-app purchase options to support the app’s development and unlock alternative icons and color palettes.
