Cold Turkey Android Review
We’ve all had that friend that just can’t seem to stay off of their phone for more than a couple minutes at a time. While you’re trying to have a conversation, they’re Instagramming, Twittering, and AOL chatrooming (do people still do that?) away. And we’ve also all had those times where we’re trying to get some work done but can’t help from checking for texts or playing a few levels in Candy Crush. Heck, I’ve had some of my reviews take all day because of that. I probably should have kept that a secret, huh? Well, maybe there’s a certain app that can help with all of that. Let’s take a look at Cold Turkey for Android devices.
What Is Cold Turkey?
Cold Turkey is an app with the main focus of keeping you off of your phone. Well, not so much off of your phone, just not using any of the fun and addictive things a smartphone can do. Which is everything. You begin by setting the amount of time you’d like to be phone-free, and a timer starts. And then, until that timer hits zero, your mobile device is useless. You’ll just have to wait to see how many likes you got on that Facebook photo.
How Is The App?
I must say, I am very impressed with the Cold Turkey app. Not only is it a spectacular idea, it’s executed very well. The simplicity of the application is perfect for keeping focused, and I almost enjoyed the frustration of being able to open different apps…only to be redirected right back to the Cold Turkey screen. Bold move, designers.
The Bottom Line
Whether you have trouble focusing because of your mobile device or just want more time with the outside world, Cold Turkey is an amazing application for any mobile device user. It’s designed well, executed well, and…oh! My time’s up! I can use my phone again!
