bSociable Uses Gamification to Help People End Smartphone Addiction

in Productivity (E)

[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - People who are concerned that their daily smartphone use has morphed into an unhealthy habit or even a dangerous addiction that is negatively affecting their health, relationships, sleep, or even their performance and productivity at work or school, can now get the help they need and re-engage with the social world that exists beyond their device by downloading the unique new app "bSociable."

Developed by Anti Apps, bSociable is fundamentally different - and far superior - than notification-based apps that merely tell people that they've spent too much time on their smartphone. Instead, bSociable uses gamification to reward people with "social time" for meeting their daily non-smartphone use commitments. The more social time they earn, the higher they'll climb on the global bSociable rankings, which can be searched via date, age group and gender.

In addition, bSociable features graphs and charts that let people accurately track and monitor their social time. While simple and straightforward, this data can be eye-opening to people who have not fully grasped just how much time they truly spend on their smartphone on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. And on a more positive note, this data also functions as a powerful motivator, since people can clearly see the progress they're making.

"Smartphones are wonderful devices to help people stay connected, get more done, have fun, find things to buy and places to go, and so on," commented Robert Bleeker, founder of Anti Apps. "But for millions of people around the world, smartphone use is no longer a choice: it's a compulsion. With bSociable, they'll be able to methodically restore the balance and quality in their lives, as they re-engage with the world and people around them. The app is fun, simple, and based on the feedback we've received from people around the world, it's timely and essential as well".

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 3.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
bSociable 1.5, the unique new app that uses a fun gamification to help people end their smartphone addiction, is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
