We need an app that can turn our smart phones to dumb phones at certain times and in certain locations.
This would be an ideal solution to the problem of smart phones in schools. During school hours and/or while within a geo-fence of the school grounds, the app would disable all non-essential apps and functionalities, including games and social media, allowing only calls and text messages to a short list of essential contacts like mom and dad.
This would ensure the phone could serve its essential purpose without causing disruption in the classroom.
Plus, the app could be used by others to enforce focused time for work, hobbies, time with loved ones, or whatever other reasons they might want to eliminate distractions.
