Years ago, parents warned kids not to sit too close to the TV because it would harm their eyes. Now, the ubiquitous nature of smartphones mean that screens are in front of us most of the day, and most of us need to rest our eyes from too much screen time.
When a kid is holding the device right up to his head, the app pops up and reminds him to increase the distance.
Thankfully, you can password protect the app so kids don’t just disable it and go on their merry way. You might find this app to be overkill, and it won’t be battery-friendly since it needs to constantly access the camera, but for those with young ones concerned about their screen time, it’s worth a shot.
Remember when we were kids & they told us not to sit too close to the TV… & now we constantly have a 5 inch screen in our face..
