Smartphone usage reached new highs as consumers spend countless hours each day using their device, so the 'Unphone' productivity app is a new way to help them taper off their use.

The app works by having users join in on hourly challenges to see who can hold out the longest with not using their device. At the end of the hour, the participants who didn't use their device will split money with other winners that they wagered into a pool. This brings a little of tangibility into the mix by putting a competitive spin onto the process to help increase the likelihood that users will properly compete with one another.

The 'Unphone' productivity app can work well for those who are finding their focus level has decreased because of smartphone use.
