Can anyone recommend a Leechblock-like app for iPad?

I have Chrome Nanny and Leechblock on my MacBook, but there is still the pesky problem of the iPad. I don't need to block certain sites--it's the scheduling feature I like. I just need help turning my internet off at bedtime, and other times that I need to focus.

Does anyone know of any solutions to this, besides a course of mindful meditation to strengthen my personal discipline?

You'll need to jailbreak. If you're on the most recent version of the iPad software (4.3.5) AND using an iPad2 rather than iPad1, that won't be possible IIRC. worked fine on my 4.3.3 iPad2, though.

Once jailbroken, you can use SBSettings and SBSchedule to automatically turn stuff (wifi/data/3g/bluetooth/etc) on and off at specific times of day.

My router let's me block out certain times. Maybe yours too?

You won't be able to do this with a plugin or other system mod unless you're willing to jailbreak.

You might be able to do it by using a different browser. There are many alternatives to Safari available for the iPad. One of these might have a scheduling feature.
