Abstract:

One of the defining factors in human progress is the fact how humans have adopted technology into their everyday lives. One of these technologies that has seen a tremendous increase in usage is the mobile phone. The potential overuse of a smartphone device is very easily done, with many possible bad psychological side effects. Digital addiction is a form of addiction that has become more prevalent with people due to the ever-growing technological advances that our devices have achieved. This work focuses on what could be done to assist people via a software application who either have the addiction or help prevent people from becoming addicted. This paper presents design and implementation of a mobile application to monitor and control the phone usage so that it can help combat digital addiction. The prototype implementation lets user see how much time they use on their phone as well as set some preferences. The study has been evaluated by user testing and having user feedback.
