App Store Description

Kapper is designed to help limit smartphone and tech addiction in work and classroom settings.

Kapper runs completely offline! Yes, you are reading this correctly… that means zero data collection, no email signup or subscriptions, no location-tracking, and it works when your phone is on airplane mode or when no service/wifi is available.

Zero data is sent to a server, because there literally is NO server hoarding your info! The app runs completely on your phone and takes up less than 15 MB’s of storage, helping eliminate unwanted battery draining. The only requirement for the Kapper app is for your notifications to be turned on in the app settings.

When Kapper is launched and set to run for a desired time period (or “session”) the app functions on the foreground of your device, creating a cap over your screen. Every time you leave Kapper, a notification is sent to you telling you to enter back inside Kapper, if you do not enter back inside the app before the notification disappears - the activity clock is activated - counting the total time you spend off the app screen until it is opened in the foreground again. This is known as a “pickup.”

When a “session” is over, Kapper creates a detailed log (“receipt”) of your total pickup activity for that given session. This receipt is completely owned and controlled by you, it can be permanently deleted or shared amongst friends and colleagues; no other copy exists outside your phone until you personally share it. Additionally, the receipt does not include any personal information or specific activity records. Kapper does not log what apps or websites you visit while you were off the cap screen, it only records the individual and total pickup time.

The goal of a Kapper session is to keep the "Green-Zero-Activity-Banner" present on your screen and subsequently printed on your receipt to confirm your optimal focus during a session: after only five seconds off the Kapper “cap” screen the banner will be erased from that session receipt.

Don’t be scared, Kapper doesn’t stop you from using your device completely, the app is designed to allow you to use the basic functions of your phone without triggering the activity clock and losing the Green-Zero-Activity-Banner, including:

- Receiving messages (iMessage, WhatsApp, etc.) view/quick-response through notification portal.
- Receiving phone calls - talk as long as you need!
- View and edit widgets: on quick glance menu: (time, date, weather, calendar, battery, “screen time,” etc.)
- Take pictures when device is locked or through notification center — review/edit/send photos inside bin.
- Flashlight on the quickmenu.
- Screen Record on the quickmenu.
- Adjust phone volume and screen brightness on the quickmenu.
- Play music (started before session begins) - manage (pause/play, next/last song) from quick menu.
- Manage notifications in notification center.
- Power off phone.
- Lock device.
- Make emergency calls. (In an emergency, Kapper is not a priority!)

Essentially, Kapper turns your smart device into a more simple version of itself, built to limit the use of other mobile applications strategically designed to distract you and keep you on their platform.

Kapper can be used for meeting personal goals, proving focus to a third party without privacy concerns through receipt sharing, or challenging your friends and loved ones to a good old game of, Pay Attention! The simplicity of the app allows for both individual and group engagement.

Kapper demands self discipline and provides control, productivity, focus, accountability, and great entertainment to anyone who takes advantage of its utility. For more information and “How-to-Tutorials” - visit
