If you feel like you spend too much time on your phone, give Envelope a try. This Google Experiment simplifies your phone to basic calling functions, while the other turns it into a screenless camera, letting you focus on the present moment. Inspired by the trend of people purchasing a second simpler phone to use over holidays and weekends to limit technology use, the goal was to give people an opportunity to try a day without a phone without having to buy a second phone.
