Many of us have too many apps on our phones

With every app just a button away (or say, a thumbprint away), it is so easy to download an app, play around with it for a while and integrate it into our daily lives, if there is some utility or entertainment value.

Digital minimalism is about getting back control

Our attention is controlled by the apps we choose to download and the only way we can take charge of our attention (spans) is through digital minimalism.

Minimalism is about minimizing friction

A Chef doesn’t use a single kitchen tool. There is always a set of tools, for different purposes, that are deployed as part of the cooking process. A writer will need multiple tools that will aid the writing process, by removing the friction points. But as long as we are aware of where each tool is coming in, doing its job and adding a value to the creative process, I think it is fine to have as many tools as your process needs.

How do we interpret minimalism?

Minimalism is not about having less. Minimalism is about having just the right number of things, that minimize the friction.

Bring in a degree of intentionality into our daily experiences

  1. Developing an understanding of various use cases and digital workflows in our lives will make us limit the number of apps we engage with frequently.
  2. Practising digital minimalism has many benefits such as having fewer distractions from the real world, less tracking (and risks) of our data, and focused engagement with only a limited (quality) set of tools.
  3. The less the clutter and friction, the more YOU (not app makers) have control over your life, away from the device.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

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

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

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

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
