BLACK HOLE is an application specially designed for ‘phubbers’ (people who are always staring at their cellphones). It gradually blurs the phone screen to remind users to take a break after being on the phone for a certain amount of time. Simply drag the apps into the ‘black hole’ on the menu screen, then set the time limit for usage and time frame for a break. Once the usage time is reached, the phone’s screen becomes completely blurred within a minute. All the applications that are in the ‘black hole’ cannot be displayed, while exemptions are made for the others. When the rest period is over, the screen will clear up again.
