Addiction to technology has a number of negative impacts, including preventing students from focusing in class -- something the Pocket Points app is trying to address. Although it might seem counter-intuitive for an iOS app to stop you from using your smartphone, the rewards-based application does just that. The free app offers discounts and deals from local businesses to students ignoring their iPhones at school.
Designed for both students and businesses, Pocket Points enables users to collect points for not touching their phones. You simply open the app, lock your phone and start earning points depending on how long you go without unlocking it again. Points are converted into coupons at the online gift store, where participating businesses can reach their target demographic and encourage brand loyalty.
