Many of us probably know that it’s probably not good to be glued to our phones all day, but we can’t help it. Sometimes we get too engrossed and just end up spending hours on end on our mobile devices, which is why companies like Google have introduced digital wellbeing features designed to help us better manage our time.
It isn’t always so easy because time can fly, but OnePlus thinks they could do a better job. The company recently announced its new Wellpaper app. This is basically a wallpaper app except that it will be able to provide users with visual cues and live tracking of their smartphone usage from the wallpaper itself.
This means that when you’re using your phone, you’ll be able to tell how much you’re using it or have used it, and then hopefully it’ll be enough for you to take a break. According to the app’s description:
“With the ever-rising usage of smartphones, there’s never been a greater need to stay aware of what and how long you’re using yours. WellPaper is a digital wellbeing tool created by OneLab, an experiential software team within OnePlus. It displays a dynamic live wallpaper based on your smartphone usage data, allowing you to visualize and better understand your day-to-day phone screen time.”
There are various styles that you can choose from depending on your needs, and the best part is that it’s free. If you’re interested in checking it out, you can download it from the Google Play Store.
