Technology is great, but sometimes you need a break.
Digital Detach for Android temporarily turns your smartphone into a dumb phone that limits everything except calls and texts for a period of time that you choose.
Do you need a digital intervention?
“This app is dumb, people should just have self-control..”
Stop following another person’s journey – start living your own
Complain about not having enough time in the day? Unlike other apps, this is your fix. Less time on the phone, more time living the life you want.
The story behind Digital Detach
My name is Luke, and I did everything I could to avoid purchasing a smartphone. Up until 6 months ago, I had this phone, and I was fine.
I finally decided to give in (after getting lost in Boston all the time…I needed maps.) I quickly noticed that having a smartphone can be an easy fix to boredom, and it provided an escape from life (specifically, sitting on the subway.)
The more I thought about smartphone use, the more I decided to observe the world around me. It’s pretty obvious - everyone is on their phone..all the time. It’s an addiction for many people.
I wanted something that could easily allow me to turn my smartphone into the flip-phone I used to have. I still wanted to communicate, but I didn’t want the distractions like Facebook, Reddit, and the news (it’s mostly depressing anyways.) I also wanted to make it as easy as possible, so there nothing would hold me back from taking a break, and enjoying the world around me.
