After trying out a dumb phone for a while last year, I found I still wanted modern phone features like camera, decent text messaging, shared calendar, maps, etc..

One idea in Make Time [1] was the idea of deleting distracting apps from your phone, which makes your phone into an amazing tool that does not foster distraction. I found this to be better than using Apple/Facebook/Google time management tools since it keeps me in control and not still relying on them and their tools.

When I want to check Instagram I use the website and if I would like to post, I just download the app again and log in.
