Most mobile device users find it difficult to disconnect their phones or do away with those persistent notifications. A group of students decided to do something about it. So they developed an app to help them resist smartphone addiction.
The RESIST app is designed to help you stay off your phone so you can focus on your studies or work, or you get penalised. Nothing works like a simple incentive system; right?
How Does The RESIST App Work?
The app lets you set a schedule and a financial penalty should you break that schedule. In other words, cash is deducted from your pocket and that cash is sent to a charity that you pick.
It is all your choice.
Open the app, decide how long do you want to stay off of your smartphone, input how much you want to fix as penalty, and then pick the charity you want your money to go to if and when you give in to the temptation to use your smartphone before the time you set.
The app is available for Android OS only at this time but may also get an iPhone version soon.
