It’s now second nature for most people to check their Facebook and Twitter as soon as they wake up in the morning and it’s probably the last thing they do before going to sleep at night. To some people this may seem too much and unnecessary, but to others, keeping up to date with world news and the lives of loved ones is perfectly normal; especially when we can access all this information with just the touch of a screen on a smartphone.
With all these new apps and operating system advancements, our smartphone usage has no doubt increased, with a lot of people wishing to reduce how much time they spend glued to their handheld device. This is where new app Checky can help. The free app has a very simple purpose, it shows the user how many times they swipe the unlock screen and start looking on their phone. It logs this information, then sends you a notification once a day, telling you your daily score. It also reveals where you checked in, and compares it to other days.
If you feel like you’re becoming addicted to your phone, or you get accused of being on your phone too much (guilty), Checky is definitely worth the free download and giving a go for a week. The app will provide you with an insight into exactly how often you use your phone, perfect for proving how sociable you are, or not, as the case may be.
Checky is free to download for both iOS and Android.
