In this article, I will be teaching you the best study strategies of using android applications to fight Phone addictions.
The problem face by students is phone addiction, some students spend more time on social media instead of reading their books, some can do without their phone.
How nice would it be if you can break free from this phone addiction?, if you can read your books without being disturbed by social media or YouTube?
1. SELF CONTROL
You might know good study strategies but with distractions, you won’t be able to study effectively.
The first application on my list is Self Control, self control is a mobile application that allow users to block access to certain applications on their phone over some period of time.
To set it up, you can go to the app settings and choose airplane mode, this will turn the phone to airplane mode during the study time.
In addition, you can either set the application to run manually or set your study timetable. After setting the study time table, the app will automatically initiate itself at the time sets. You can also set the applications you want to be executable on your phone during your study time.
Lastly, assuming you initiated the app and you are blocking access to WhatsApp, but there is urgency to check something on WhatsApp. No matter what you do, you can’t access WhatsApp unless the time you set elapsed or else you will have to format your phone. You won’t be able to stop the app or uninstall it after it has been launched. I could remember the first day I downloaded the app, I mistakenly set the app to 24hours and initiated it, I couldn’t access any apps on my phone and I couldn’t stop the app, I was able to use my phone after the 24hours elapsed.
Antisocial is a powerful mobile app that works exactly like self control.
- Tells you the number of time you unlock your phone everyday.
- Total minute you spent on social media per day.
- Your favorite apps.
- Apps that consume your time and also block them for some time.
- Blacklist (block access to) certain applications on your phone for some period of time.
3. COLD TURKEY
