A company is successfully combating screen addiction. The company, Onward, said that 89 percent of Onward’s users reduced their screen time. The company has also launched apps to combat porn and gambling, and, amazingly, 51 percent of those surveyed stopped watching porn entirely. The apps even have customizable caps, and the apps were able to stop 62 percent of users from crossing the limits they’d set for themselves.
