Checky helps you stop checking your phone so much – Virtual Gratification Syndrome

Chris Miller    

How many times a day do you check your phone or tablet? Checky can help by telling you the number of times and where you do it using the location services built into your device.  The idea of the free application is to inform you where and how often you keep checking for that Virtual Gratification Syndrome (VGS).  Think about your own habits and when you unlock that screen.

  • In the car?  Of course
  • In the elevator? Yes
  • At lunch? Always
  • At dinner? If the other person does
  • In bed? Oh yeah
  • Randomly because you have to? VGS

The Checky app does point you to the other app they make for meditation, which isn’t free. But using the simple display you get a feel for how you trend during the week.  Checky does not know how long you were on the device, just that you checked it.  I can see this being linked to things like Facebook or IFTT to set alerts and show who can check the least amount of times.  Or help you curn that VGS habit by slowing you down some.  Maybe even setting specific times or places you check your devices.

I am going to see how my trends are and update this later.  Don’t forget how VGS can affect you each day. Read all the VGS articles here on TheSocialNetworker.

We look at the growing number of apps that spy on the mobile phone activity of your children.  An increasing number of parents feel the need to spy on their children’s cell phones to keep up with who they talk to and what they share. One thing to remember is that all of the data you are tracking is being sent from your child’s phone to the Internet and then stored there. While all of these services use encryption to store the data, the fear it is out there is always on our mind. Wh

How to create a Pokestop for Pokemon Go. Good for businesses?
Thu, Jul 14th 2016 5:35p   Chris Miller
I could go into Pokemon Go security or even how to play, but what about creating Pokestops as a way to increase foot traffic to your business? As brought up by a friend during a Facebook posting, a Pokestop can be beneficial. What is a Pokestop? As defined by Niantic Labs, a Pokestop is a place to collect items such as Pokeballs, eggs and a ton of other items to help you catch, grow and maintain Pokemon.  Sounds simple right? There are so many online resource right now showing you every corne

GoGo Entertainment app review – GoGo quickly away from it
Thu, Jun 23rd 2016 4:16p   Chris Miller
Many airlines are turning their in-flight entertainment over to GoGo Entertainment (who also controls GoGo Internet in the flights). The use and flow of this application as an entertainment server is horrid. Here is my story. On a recent American Airlines flight (formerly US Air leg from St Louis to Charlotte) I noticed all the in seat music was disabled. The magazine and agents directed me to the GoGo Internet to then hook into the GoGo Entertainment to get the music, movies and TV shows. I pre
