How many hours per day can you stare at your phone?

How many hours per day can you stare at your phone?

Eight? Four? Twenty? One? Here’s the truth: Screen time doesn’t matter.

1. It’s not about how much. It’s about whether your phone is a needy, attention-sucking vampire.

But That's The Trick To Keep You Inside The Phone

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
