Live the moment, leave the phone!
ShutApp is free and easy to use, timer app that helps you and your friends to take a break from your phone, and to enjoy the real moments.
“Sorry what did you say?” Everyone knows situations like this – missing real moments and don’t being part of the real world. Approximately 81% of people admit to interrupting conversation, mealtime, or playtime with family or friends to check their social media, text messages, or email (Source: meQuilibrium.com)
Smartphones are awesome but sometimes you have to take a break from your phone and enjoy the real time with your friends and loved once. That’s why we developed ShutApp!
With ShutApp you can easily set goals and challenge your friends for how long you don’t want to use your phone. You can test yourself and your friends if you are able to stop checking your phone every minute.
So, how it works: Invite friends for the ShutApp challenge, set the time you DON’T want to use
your phone, mute your phone (if it's not already done) and the countdown will automatically start. If you use your phone before the time has expired the app will recognize it, the time will stop and your friends will receive a notification. That's normally the time when you have to admit that you are addicted!
We did various UI adaptations and have fixed couple of annoying bugs (sorry for that;)! Enjoy your digital detox and keep it real!

I couldn’t even begin to use this app as when I tried to sign up it told me that the two emails I tried to use were already taken which is impossible as I have never used the app before. :((((
Good app helped get me off my phone.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
