Finny Report Card: Making Device Time Productive for Thousands of Children

By Finny, Special for  USDR

Back-to-school season is in full swing, and unfortunately today’s youth have more distractions from their education than ever before. The average child now spends more than 8 hours a day on devices with the majority of this time spent on social media and mobile games. Studies continue to show the long-term developmental challenges this presents, with renowned psychologists predicting that Digital Addiction will be added to the American Psychiatric Associations’ list of Mental  Disorders.

Finny, a Los Angeles based startup, is tackling this complex issue head on. Targeted to 7-14 year olds, their innovative app monitors unproductive device usage and interrupts by triggering custom educational content. Whether reinforcing traditional academic subjects, introducing new topics, or promoting physical activity, the platform makes screen time  productive.
