A new Breakfree app created by scientists measures your addiction to your smartphone.

The new Android app not only gives you the period of time that you have been using your phone but also reminds you when it might be time for a break.

According to Mashable, the app calculates an "addiction score" based on the metrics of how often the user unlocks the phone and spends time in making calls, and will send reminders suggesting you slow down when your use is on the rise.

It further adds that Breakfree is free to download but users will have to pay 1.99 dollars to gain access to an upgraded version of the app that includes calculation of the how much the user spends with his phone and individual apps.

Mrigaen Kapadia, the app's founder said that it was created to make people realize that the human company is better than the company of your phone.
