Restrict PUBG Mobile Or App Use On Your Smartphone: Well, if you will ask which is the most popular smartphone game in India? Almost everyone would say PUBG. PUBG Mobile has received so much popularity within such a short span of time after its release not only in India but also all around the world. For gaming point of view, this battle royale game has been getting so much great reviews, but at the same time, it is also receiving criticism for having a negative influence on one’s health, particularly children.

Similarly, this most popular smartphone game has also been criticized in India, resulting in a ban in PUBG Mobile in some of the Indian cities.

However, games such as PUBG Mobile and Fortnite are helping these gaming industries grow and develop, but on the other hand, its addiction is generating a negative impact on people’s life. As per to the Limelight Network’s “State of Online Gaming” report, gamers from India are sacrificing on sleep, food as well as even social life for gaming. The report also further added that Indian gamers spend almost seven hours every single week just playing online games.

Space

Boundless Mind presents you Space, which let its users get create space from the apps which they are addicted to but at the same time don’t want to delete it. Space also helps in alerting users when screen time on apps increase and for that reason reward them for goals which are achieved.

ActionDash

ActionDash, on the other hand, does not have the time-bound feature. Users can still get thorough reports on their smartphone usage for every single app.
