Fade / UI Design


Fade can be bound with any app as a background program, which will manage your daily usage of certain app, and change the app icon when you use it. If you ran out of time the app will go gray and transparent, meanwhile you can’t click it until tomorrow (or manually unlock it when it’s emergency.). By this way we hope could change phone addicts’using habits step by step and strengthen their self-control ability.
Meanwhile we also collect the data of daily usage to provide user a better understanding of his/her FOMO conditions.
