Breakfree- An app that manages smartphone addiction



Do you constantly check your whatsapp?

Do you upload selfies on fb daily?

Do you feel lonely and bored when you smartphone isn’t working?

Well, if that’s the case with you, BEWARE!!!

You might just be addicted to your smartphone!

Yess, you are right!!

It’s a new type of addiction that our dear smartphone has brought along with it . And nowadays it makes our parents worry even more than a drug addiction!!

Studies reveal that around 176 million people worldwide are ‘mobile addicts’!!

Nowadays We walk, talk and sleep with our phones,they are our life and our soul.But its okay to be like that..No?

Okay so before you start wondering and worrying more, lets breakfree!!


Breakfree is an app that aims to help users break free from their smartphone addiction by supplying usage data.

Check out this video:

Got an idea?


If BreakFree sees you’ve been spending too much time on one app, making too many calls or using your smartphone for over an hour, the app gives you a heads up that it’s time to put the phone down. It also allows you to disable the Internet, reject incoming calls and send auto text messages at specific times of the day. For example, if you want to spend downtime with your family from 6 to 9 in the evening, you can set the app to disable your phone’s Internet during that time.

The app can also calculate your addiction score based on how much time you spend on your smartphone and present you with detailed statistics so you can take the necessary steps to slow down on your smartphone use.


Also the motive behind the launch of this app is to make people realize that human company is better than phone Company!

They say ‘Stop being hooked to your phone and start saving time for more important things in life’

Hahaha, i wish we could understand that! Our parents have been telling us that day and night, right?

You can download the app from the Google Playstore,its very much there!

So what are you thinking? Do you wanna break free? Or is it still like“Mujhe to teri lat lag gayee,lag gayee”?

I wonder if we can ever get over it! But we must say it’s a very good attempt to help the human race,specially the youth!

Ohh, I have 100 new messages on whatsapp.. Its time to chat..But don’t forget it’s very important to get over our addiction,its necessary to ‘breakfree’!!
