The evidence is there to show the dark side of social media. It is good to raise awareness of this but behaviours and norms has turned us into a society addicted to our smartphones. Self management is hard. Our software hopes to help people limit their social media use

Tech is here to stay, we must be “empowered” to understand the issues while society needs to “have a conversation” about its concerns. Equally Tech brings many positives if people are smart about its use.:

Are you out at concert or show this weekend? We have been to many where you end up watching it through someone's smartphone screen due to a sea of smartphones in the air. In your next event, try to limit how many photos/videos you take & let yourself get lost in the experience 🎶

The company that makes an old school mobile phone handset similar sort of form to a Sony Ericsson K800i, that can make calls and texts, but has 4G and can tether to a larger phone handset or tablet. They will win. Big time. No stats, no proof. I’m just sure of it.

As much as I love technology, I’m glad that we don’t allow mobile phones in our Primary school. For many reasons. Do any primary schools in Wales allow pupils to have mobile phones? Would love to hear about it...

Interesting experiences of schools attempting to ban smartphones. They still experience disruptions in the school day. Some schools advise parents to give kids 'dumbphones' for use in emergencies. However our software turns smartphones into dumbphones letting you have both! 🙌

Kirsty Allsopp identifies the need for parents to help control their children's screen time. She got trolled for smashing her kids ipads but states it was because "nothing good could come of staying indoors playing computer games".
