Digital Detox: Check out Google’s six new Digital Wellbeing apps
Google introduced ‘Digital Wellbeing’ last year with Android 9 Pie. The search giant started a move to help users take a digital break from their smartphones. It recently launched six new Digital Wellbeing apps which are part of ‘Experiments with Google’.
The new experimental apps from Google include Paper Phone, Desert Island, Unlock Clock, Morph, Post Box and We Flip. All these apps are available to download on Google Play Store.
The most popular and truly experimental of the list would be the ‘Paper Phone’ which is indeed a paper phone. This app essentially lets you print out a paper phone with only the necessarily details you require. Once all the details are selected you can print it out, fold it and use it as a paper phone. You can download the Paper Phone here.
Desert Island lets users choose only the essential apps. Once you select the most used apps, Desert Island will show how many times you used these apps compared to others. Desert Island wants users to “find focus by going a day with only your essential apps”. You can download Desert Island here.
Unlock Clock is an interesting experiment to find out how often you unlock your phone. Unlock Clock wallpaper will count and display the number of times you unlock your phone in a day. Once you download Unlock Clock app you will find this wallpaper from your Live Wallpaper library. You can download Unlock Clock here.
Morph app helps users divide their day by arranging apps according to their use. Work apps go under the work folder and similarly travel apps go under the travel folder. Doing so will make your phone automatically adapt and give you the apps based on the time or place. You can download Morph here.
Post Box wants to schedule notifications for you so that your distractions are minimized. On Post Box you can schedule when you wish to receive notifications. Once the ‘delivery time’ arrives, you’ll find all your unread notifications neatly categorized. Post Box can be downloaded here.
We Flip is another interesting experiment for groups. Once all your group members are ready you’ll pull down to flip together and keep your phones aside. When the flip session is over it will show how each of you fared and which member took a peek into their phones. We Flip can be downloaded here.

A Surgeon by Day & a Poet by Night, Here is All You Need to Know About Dr. Shadab Ahmed
Our team had been in touch with Dr. Shadab Ahmed for some time. We had always seen him smiling and in a positive mode. His books are well admired and he has a great persona, for which we decided to cover his story. Today we present you with a true gem of a person, Dr. Shadab Ahmed.
Dr. Shadab Ahmed hails from Bihar, India. He has spent good segments of his life in North-East India, New Delhi, Gujarat, and Tamil Nadu. True-Blood Bihari by thinking and living, his mantra is “Carpe Diem”, or to seize the day.
Dr. Shadab Ahmed was born and brought up in the resilient and magical North-East India, growing up between guns and roses. He moved pan-India at various ages, finishing his schooling in Manipur and Delhi. His voracious appetite for knowledge and wisdom led him into books, refining his perception and understanding of the good, bad, and wicked in life. He is a scholar of literature and poetry, and his interests are diverse in Norse, Hebrew, European, Mughal, Russian, Iberian, Latin-Modernism, Metaphysical, Alhambra, Mandarin, Turkish, Persian, Indian, Baltic, Celtic, and Castilian poetry and literature. He retains an inner child and has a very combustible imagination.
Dr. Shadab Ahmed is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon by profession, and he is also an Associate Professor (Reader) in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Vinayaka Mission’s Sankarachariyar Dental College, Vinayaka Mission’s Research Foundation (VMRF-DU), Salem, Tamil Nadu. He completed his UG from Buddha Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Bihar, and his PG from Meenakshi Ammal Dental College & Hospital, Tamil Nadu. For pre-destiny, he altered his academic path and took the bold risk of jumping into college management and administration, and has never looked back since. He is distinctive in methodically drafting policies for NABH, NAAC, NIRF, and AISHE and implementing protocols of the Dental Council of India. He focuses on qualitative and quantitative institutional growth. He has previously served as Joint Coordinator and Administration Advisor to dental institutions and has worked as a dental surgeon with the North-East Frontier Railways, Assam. His interest in OMFS goes into Head and Neck Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Cleft and Craniofacial Disorders, and Maxillofacial Trauma.
Inspiration to write a book: Dr. Shadab Ahmed has always been fascinated by books and wanted to write since he was a child. But for his chosen and formidable academic path. He never managed to complete his books, which were left on the shelves and acquired dust over time. His inspiration to write books came from his father, who proudly declared one day that he would never be able to write a book. Today, Dr. Ahmed is the author of 3 published non-pedagogical books related to World Poetry, with several others in the press and under progress. He devotes his free time maniacally to reading, understanding, and translating various canonical poetry texts and their interpretations, along with their “Pre-Text” in history and “Con-Text” in contemporary times and ages. His extra-academic interest bridges across Bards, Rhymes, Hymns, Epics, Odes, Elegies, Zajals, Poesies, Ballads, Sonnets, Quatrains, Verses, Couplets, Qasidehs, Muwashshahs, Masnawis, Haikus, Limericks, and Runes. His distinctive interest lies in European Literature and Poetry (covering the Jacobean Era, Elizabethan Era, Edwardian Era, Georgian Era, Stuart and Caroline Eras, Renaissance and Post-Renaissance Eras) and Mandarin Poetry, encompassing the Ming, Yuan, Song, and Tang dynasties.
Dr. Shadab Ahmed has several books in progress and manages to write in what little time he gets after his professional duties. Two more of his books are in press and slated to be released in the coming months this year. He aspires to open a bookstore someday, thereby completing the trinity of visions he envisioned as a child (Doctor-Author-Businessman). He prays he gets the time and chance to see his pre-science conceptualizing in the coming months and years. He believes in taking decisive risks and lives for the day.
