With ScreenZen, you can PAUSE before you open a distracting app. Reduce how many times you pick up your phone unconsciously.

Many of the distracting apps use rewards and gamification (like number of likes on a photo) to capture attention. With ScreenZen™, you can use the same tricks to help yourself undo your habit loops with these apps.

While some apps require GPS to track when you pick up your phone or VPN to invasively block your internet access, ScreenZen™ uses shortcuts to allow you to pause before opening the app.

Privacy is a top concern for app users (as it should be) and your data, including specific app use data is never stored anywhere except on your own device.

Love it!

Been using this app for a while now and I absolutely love it. It’s got some great features that are not included in the normal apple screen time app, like the offscreen activities that encourages you to do things off your phone. I especially like the emphasis on positive reinforcement, since no one wants to be shamed about their phone use by their phone. Definitely check it out!

Easy to use, keeps the family happy

Loving this app. I have a mild phone addiction, particularly to social media. I find myself opening Twitter, Instagram, etc even when around friends/family. After using the app for a few days I found myself more present with the world around me. My wife is certainly enjoying seeing me more and my phone less!

Recommending to all my friends

I really love this app! I’ve noticed in quarantine I’m using my phone way more than I used to. I’ve tried so many different techniques to minimize my phone time, but they haven’t been successful. This app is a game changer! I especially like the app timer and logging my distracting apps. I will be recommending this to all my friends/family!
