Hey there, I'm Aswin Mohan the maker of NoPhone. It's an Android Launcher designed to help stop overusing your Phone. The Story I recently started to keep track of the time that I was spending on my phone, and it shot upwards of 6 hours per day average. That was a little too much for me. That's when I started looking for alternatives. Light Phone seemed promising but was expensive and I didn't need another hardware phone. That's why I built NoPhone. The Answer It's an Android Launcher that takes up your HomeScreen and then gives you access to only the bare neccessities. It's pretty uncomfortable to change the HomeScreen App everytime you login and hides all the other apps. It's gets the job done and I have been using it for a while. So give it a try and give your valuable feedback :D

Seems like a great concept :) Any plans for releasing an IOS version? Would be happy to test out.

@fosterhank iOS does not permit the same level of customisation that Android Supports. But this app is written in React Native, so we can expect a standalone iOS app soon.

@aswinmohanme awesome, looking forward to it, best of luck!

nophone app is so stupid. this is just a links to many of the appz on my motog. just a few hours of development. i can come out of the app very easily. my sms and whatsap still happen. what ois the point of this app. i do not understand

@robert76 I can't agree with you more. It's stupid by design, and yet it links to two other apps on your phone. And yes I believe a telented dev like you can come out with an App like this in a weekend. But it's designed to keep me from using my phone, and it works. And for the listed problems the App will evolve, it will get bew features so chill πŸ˜‰

@robert76 I hate it when people say I can make this in few hours. Then why don't you, huh?

@robert76 WIth like 10 minutes in Nova launcher, using zooper widget or kwgt, you can do this, but that's not the point.

This is a very original concept and name.

@internetsheldon hey I'm embarrassed, I just went up with the name that first popped into my mind when I thought about this idea. Sorry Man, will make amends.

Great idea! what a pity, it's available only for android.

@ddouble7 The honest reason this App is not available on the Apple family is because Iam poor. You just need 25$ and a laptop for developing for Android. But for iOS you need a Mac and 99$. Don't want to bore you with a sob story, but the barrier for entry is a little too high. The App works on an iOS too since it's cross platform by design.

Why don't we just go back to Nokia dumb phones? So I can appreciate the irony even better.

Very simple design. But I still can access my notifications.

Pros: looks great, works great. It's a great alternative for people who aren't locked into certain apps like me. Cons: can't change the tasks app to my preferred tasks app (todoist). That's about it.

Uhh I need this...

One more thing I need is a music player shortcut. If that is available then this will become my default launcher.
Philip Ingram
a dark mode might remove the battery killer inside this app
