Amazing Aro

I would suggest it to everyone. It brigs family’s together and gets you interested in other the things than your phone. Just by getting off your phone you can feel more alive and happier. Ske to everyone who wants to have quality family time I would suggest the Aro.

Absolutely love the Aro Box, App is meh

My husband and I are absolutely loving the Aro box, but I’m sadly not super impressed with the app. Wish I could have just purchased the box and not had to pay the $180 for a year that I’m not going to use the app. Regardless, our physical screen time has dropped significant (although now my iPhone says my screen time is up 50% because it counts Aro app sessions as screen time 🤦🏻‍♀️) Great concept, but for the price wasn’t hoping for something more. Box is beautiful though and we love the lightning charger.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the feedback. We recently released a new version of the app based on user feedback. The new version introduces brand new features designed to help families better understand their phone habits and guide you on your journey toward digital wellness. These features include personalized suggestions, digital wellness guidance and deeper insights. Let us know if you have any feedback on the new experience and we hope it better aligns with your expectations!

Aro makes an impact on phone use

My wife, daughter, and I have all found HOURS more time in our lives in just two weeks by having the Aro box. We compete against each other to put our phone down the longest. Great app, great product
