The number one distraction for college students is cell phones. Which in turn, has caused negative effects on students academic grades.
The Pocket Points App transforms paying attention in class, staying focused while studying, and driving safely, into a competitive game.
To get points, a student must start a timer on the app and keep the phone locked, while on campus in classes and studying.
Freshman Katelyn Davis discusses how pocket points has helped her academically, keeping her motivated to avoid mobile distractions.
"Definitely less distractions because you want to get the goal to get more points," Davis said.
Her and her friends treat it as a competition. They all constantly track daily, and weekly points to see who can collect more.
Students can stay motivated, avoid distractions, and gain rewards just by downloading the Pocket Points App for free on the App Store.
