Android App of the Week: Posture

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

If you are as guilty as us for hunching over your handset to check Instagram, Snap and WhatsApp incessantly, then you need Posture in your life.

Apparently, we look at our phones on average 85 times daily. But did you know that the way you hold our phones can cause up to 60 lbs (27kg) of strain on the neck? Try strapping 4-6 medium size bowling balls to your head while looking at your phone for 2 hours and you’ll get the gist.

The Android app is a screen overlay that sends you reminders if you are holding your phone in a neck straining position, so that you can build the habit of viewing your phone at eye level.

How does it work?

Posture app of the week

Set the time interval to check your posture while phone is in use.

The app will run quietly in the background and remind you at intervals set by yourself to check your posture. Bad posture is detected by the angle of your phone (judged using an inbuilt gyroscope).

If you’re holding your phone in straining angle for your neck, the app will remind you to bring your phone to eye level, helping you keep your spine and neck position in mind when using your phone.

Download Posture for any android handset, including the Motorola Moto G5 Sim Free and Huawei Honor 8 Sim Free.
