Developers of Offtime App
The credit for developing the app goes to Alexander Steinhart, who is a psychologist from Germany. He was assisted by Humboldt University of Berlin and by the designer Michael Dettbarn.
A study carried out by the university found out that users were unlocking their phones as many as 63 times a day. However, after Alexander Steinhart’s app was used, this number fell down sharply. The users unplugged for only two hours a day. This helped in fighting addiction to Smartphone.
The design of the app is such that you, as a user you can unplug the gadget without having to miss any urgent matter. The app lists your contact and can penetrate the downtime. It can be through your family members or friends. And on the other hand, it can shut down your emails, call, text, etc.
