A digital health app is an essential tool for today's hyper-connected society. As the Internet is still growing in popularity and its ecosystem is expanding through communities, entertainment, everyday functions and the like, it really is no surprise that digital detox applications like Goya-Move are becoming a thing.
The name is an abbreviation of "Get Off Your Apps and Move." The creators of the platform — Isaac Gredinberg and Keri Mackey, have partnered up with the National PTA for the release of the digital health app. The mobile application is intended "to encourage, not punish."
Parents can set a daily step goal for their children, as well as set BlackOut times for homework hours, bedtime and the like.
