Designer's statement: Ditox is a mobile application that motivates users to be independent by spending less time on smartphones and help them find healthier digital habits. This project was produced in hopes to provide heavy smartphone users a rest/break from smart devices. We often spend too much time on smartphone with no purpose. We may miss any important moments while we are wasting time on looking at screen, and it may cause conversational breakdown with other people. Ditox doesn’t force people to stop using smartphone, because it’s natural to use smart devices in the IT era. Instead, it uses technology to enhance effective digital detox and healthier digital habits.
