Smartphones are very helpful in most of our day to day activities. Anything which has plenty of advantages, will definitely have its own disadvantage. One of the important disadvantages of Smartphones is the distraction. The notifications from different apps will easily distract us from the work.

Flipd is a productivity app for Android, which will calm down all the notifications and lock you out of your Smartphone for a specific amount of time.
Flipd is free to download from the Google Play Store. First, you need to log in with your Google+ or Facebook account in the application. Once you complete the registration process, the app will walk you through the instructions. After that, you will be redirected to the homepage of the application.
To start with the app, click the “Flip OFF” button on the home page. A new timer window will pop-up. Set the duration to lock you out of your Smartphone.

It allows you to set auto response for the calls and messages during your Flip OFF time.
