Why I made an app called Go Away, and why we need more software like it

  • Why don’t our phones make it easier for us to focus on our friends and family when we’re around them?
  • Why doesn’t anything tell us when we’ve been going down infinite scroll on a website or app for too long?
  • Why can’t we easily make sure our notification environment doesn’t pester us the whole time?
  • Why isn’t there something helping us shift time towards apps, websites, and online activities that make us happy, away from ones that do nothing for us (or even make us unhappy)?
  • Why aren’t there operating systems that look after us in all these ways and more, and make technology a better, more human place to be?
