Yang Yuan, who has developed the app, said that the intention is to encourage young workers and students to return to the healthy habit of going to bed early as the app also uses pressure from social circles to supervise the users, China Daily reports.

Some users said that the app successfully tackled the worldwide problem of using mobile phones in bed', while others criticized it for being too severe.

According to the report, users can choose a delay option and choose 'giving up sleeping early', which results in an admonitory message being published automatically in WeChat's Moment.

He added that the bad habit of using technology while in bed can be renounced through relying on self-awareness to give up staying late and the app works as a reminder.

The app has been available for Android systems since August.
