TIME FOLDER / APP for time planning


In today’s world, the convenience of smartphones has brought about the emergence of the so-called “smartphone addiction”. Time Folder is developed to deal with addiction. The users can drag apps into Time Folder and set a time. They will not receive any notification and not be able to open the apps during the period. Moreover, users are not allowed to use apps while walking, which greatly reduces the risk of accidents involving phubbing. Time Folder aims to keeps people from endless notifications or information explosion. It can also reduce user’s addiction to smartphones step by step and minimize any negative impacts that may come with it.
