The Hatch App Rewards Users for Staying Off Their Phones

It might only feel like the most minute of a distraction when you check your phone while working, but over the course of a day those unnecessary interruptions start to add up, and the Hatch app is designed to help users wean themselves off of constant phone use. The game tasks users with hatching digital creatures, but those creatures only hatch if users leave the app running, preventing them from checking anything else on their phone.

Users can set the amount of time that they want to stay focused for through the Hatch app, and the creature rewards get rarer as that time increases. The creatures are randomized, but a five-minute session might yield a common critter, while three hours will likely give the user a far rarer option.
