Recently, I came across a blog post by Jake Knapp who also experienced the distractions caused by having a smart phone. So he decided to try and tweak his iPhone to make it distraction-free. And now, more than a year later, he’s still using it – without a web browser, without email, without social stream apps such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. As he says, “I want a sensible phone, not a smart phone.”
It sounds quite similar to my mock-up for a zenphone – but without all the hassle of having to hack the operating system of the phone to make it distraction-free. If you’re interested, you can find Jake’s tips on how to make your iPhone distraction-free here.
