What our users are saying
I learned to catch mindless scrolling within a minute of happening.
Before not less but better, it took me up to 30 minutes. The biggest change for me was the change of my inner monologue. I learned to observe myself better. — Kevin, study participant
With not less but better, I learned to use my smartphone for interesting and enjoyable things, and not only to waste my time.

That helped me to reduce the time I spend with useless activities. Now I see my smartphone more as a communication device rather than a gaming device. — Study participant
