Many consumers will take out their smartphone multiple times a day to pass the time, so the 'BLACK HOLE' app has been designed to help prevent them from spending too much time on the device.

Created by Can Wang, the app works by letting users drag other apps into the large black hole-inspired section on the home screen where they will stay for a designated period of time. This will render them useless to encourage the person to get back to the real world and prevent them from staring at their phone for extended periods.

The conceptual 'BLACK HOLE' app feature addresses the increasing prevalence of smartphone addiction and phubbing and consumers find it more difficult than ever to curb technology use, even for short periods.
