A new app called Moment shows you how addicted you are to your iphone
David Rider stashed this in Mindfulness
Some of us jokingly say that we’re addicted to our iPhones. A newly released app calledMoment will show us just how true that statement may be. Designed to promote a healthier balance between our real lives and those lived through the small screens of our digital devices, Moment tracks how much you use your phone each day, helps you create daily limits on that usage, and offers “occasional nudges” when you’re approaching those limits.
The app’s creator, Kevin Holesh, says he built Moment for himself after realizing how much his digital addictions were affecting his real-world relationships.
After moving in with his fiancée and settling into their new lives together, they both started whipping out their iPhones at the end of the day to unwind, Holesh explains via a blog post. And while that’s okay to a point, for him, it was becoming a serious problem.
I sincerely wonder if this application will be successful.
Overusage seems like the kind of thing people say they want to know, but don't actually want to know.
