Oh Bother Description
Oh Bother is a lovely little app all about helping you and your housemates avoid poorly-timed interruptions when you're working from home together.

If you're working from home these days, and you've got family or roommates at home with you, you'll know that focus can be a little hard to come by. Oh Bother wants to help you and your housemates manage distractions a little bit better by giving everyone in your house a quick way to indicate whether or not they currently want to be bothered. 

Here's how it works:

• Set your status to either "botherable" or "unbotherable".
• Put your status on a timer; it'll flip automatically when time is up, and you'll get a notification reminding you to switch gears.
• Provide context for your status by indicating that you're on the phone, taking a nap, going outside, etc.
• Meanwhile, get live info on your housemates' statuses, synced automatically through iCloud.
• Set notifications to let you know when a housemate's status changes, and time your distractions accordingly!
Oh Bother 1.1 Update
2020-06-02 Version History
Hey folks!

This is the first update to add some handy new features, and it certainly won't be the last. Stay tuned for some more significant improvements coming soon.

Here's the 1.1 highlight reel:

• Continuous notifications! When you register to get notified about someone's status, you'll now be prompted to turn on continuous notifications for that person. Turn this on, and from that point onward, you'll be notified every time that person's status changes.
• New botherable contexts! I've added a few more botherable context options to help you communicate what you're up to.
• New app icons and color palettes! If you've purchased the in-app upgrade, you'll get a few new palettes and icons to try on in 1.1. You can expect to get regular cosmetic additions like these going forward.

I've also done a bunch of work behind the scenes to improve the reliability of status syncing and sharing, and to lay the groundwork for some exciting updates on the horizon.

Thanks so much for using and supporting my little app. I'd love to hear from you if you've got any ideas for how I could make Oh Bother more useful to you.
