With so much on our phones – news, memes, hilarious videos and group chats – it’s no wonder that we spend, on average, 5 hours a day on our phones. Every time it vibrates, and many times when it doesn’t, the temptation to pull your phone out and check it is often too much.
We find ourselves checking our phones several times an hour, and this can have a negative impact on your life as a whole. Your concentration at work, family time and time with friends can all suffer when everybody is always checking their phone. Spotty Time is a screen time management app, available to download on Google Play, and it aims to promote a healthier digital diet by making it easy to restrict your screen time.
The app is simple to use. Simple, but effective. You select time slots to be without your phone and, when that time comes, the app restricts your ability to use your phone, so you’re not tempted to check it. Unlike other apps, Spotty Time won’t be disabled if you restart your phone to help you commit to lowering your screen time. It’s also great to make sure that family time is a phone-free time, where everybody can be more present and enjoy some quality time together.
Aside from family time, checking your phone less helps you stay more productive at work. We check our phones, on average, 96 times a day or once every 10 minutes. That’s a lot of concentration breaks, think how much more we could get done if we reduced the number of times we check out phone? Now there’s no need to think, download Spotty Time on Google Play and give it a try!
