I am building an app called “one sec”.
It forces its users to take a deep breath whenever they open social media.
This helps to reflect and gives users the power to decide if they really want to open an app and do so intentionally.
Recently on Twitter, a blind user contacted me about “one sec”. Unfortunately they didn’t reply to my follow-up question so far. But it brought to my attention that social-media overuse is a problem for everyone, so I would like to make my app accessible for everyone.
To start off, I would love to learn more about experiences of voice over users with overuse of social media (or online news, dating apps, etc). How does this impact your quality of life? Constantly checking your phone and compensating negative emotions in a very dysfunctional way? Are there any apps you feel you should use less because they harm you long-term?
And of course, I am also very interested in your experience with my app especially. I haven't put any effort into ensuring a great voice over experience so far. But this is on my todo list now. This is why I am seeking for input on the topic in general, and my app especially.
I am very happy to hand out promo codes to anyone who would like to try my app. Please send me a direct message here.
This is the link to the App Store page:
I am very curious what you all have to report on these topics.
Thanks a lot and have a nice day!
