A new app could be the key to getting your head down and studying.
Whilst years of technological advancement has undoubtedly served us well, it’s also stolen much of our attention span. Something which is a pretty big drawback when it comes to focusing on a textbook.
However a Norwegian app called Hold, could be the answer. That’s right, our answer to the flaws of technology is in fact…A mobile app. Who’d have thought it?
Its received widely positive feedback since being released in 2016 – being downloaded 50,000 in its first three months and apparently being used by 40% of Norway’s students.
The idea behind the app is simple.
- You choose your university location, presumably so you can’t just stick it on when you go to sleep.
- When you’re ready to study, you let the app know and then for every 20 minutes you don’t touch your phone you earn a point.
- Save up your points to spend on Hold’s marketplace, where you can get things like food & drink or cinema vouchers.
