Space - Because You Need a Breather
By Dopamine Labs
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Space helps you kick app addiction by short-circuiting Instant Gratification.
It loads a Moment of Zen before the apps you want space from.
That re-wires your brain and helps you take back control of your habit.
Because you don't really want to dump your favorite apps: you just need Space.
What's New in Version 1.1.4
- Fixed private browsing bug that created blank screens on Spaced-Out Icon installation page
- Fixed 'NaN' breaths bug
- Added new items to the drawer
A Simple and Effective App
I got this app after seeing the 60 Minutes report about how apps are designed to be addictive. Though that is something I think we all always knew it is something that we disregard as unimportant. I feel like this is a good start to creating a balance between the real world and technology. One thing I hope they update it for is to be able to increase the amount of time before an app opens like how nicotene patches slowly decrease the amount of nicotene as you progress in your treatment.
I got this app after seeing them on 60 Minutes and thought it was an interesting concept. All it does it re-route you to a quick "loading screen" where it instructs you to take a deep breath before the app opens. It's really innovative, and I can't wait to see what new apps they can add and program to this system. If you want an app that breaks your checking certain apps habit, definitely install this
I love this app!
Saw it on 60 minutes, got it right away! It really helps me to remember to just calm down before I get back into the fray that is social media these days. And how refreshing that the developers thought to do something for the real benefit of its users! Thank you for thinking of our well being. 💕
App of the year, in my opinion. Please make one for CNN, Apple News and a Huffington Post! Those are real stress builders.
