Limit-Setting Mobile Apps – The Moment Apps Prioritizes Consumer Mental Health Through Scheduling (TrendHunter.com)

The Moment App might be a good mobile application to consider, given the stressful time many are finding themselves in. What many individuals have are experiencing right now is a psychological phenomenon, termed “doomscrolling” or losing one’s self in the plethora of hard news on the Internet and social media. This is exasperated by the ongoing “pandemic, the election season, and the ongoing social discourse on race and equality” in the US. Scientists have established that “doomscrolling” can “compound the effect [of depression and loneliness] by increasing our brain’s cortisol levels within minutes of picking up our phones.”

The Moment app seeks to give a solution to this. While the free version of the app has been available for a while (it works to track your usage), the paid version boasts a daily scheduling system that can limit the time you spend on each of the apps on your iPhone. When the time is up, the Moment app is triggered to deliver a bunch of push notifications that “basically make it impossible to continue scrolling.”
