Arianna Huffington Launches Thrive App to Combat Tech Addiction

January 18, 2018

Thrive Global launched a new mobile app geared to improve people's relationship with technology. The company's co-founder and CEO Arianna Huffington explains how it helps people combat their smartphone addiction.

"Let's admit it we are all addicted," says Huffington. "Now we are realizing its not all good." The Thrive App helps people re-calibrate your relationship with your phone by going into "Thrive Mode."

"There's absolutely no reason to be receiving twelve different notifications giving you the latest Trump tweets," Huffington said. The app is currently only available on Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, but Thrive Global plans to roll this out on other smartphone devices in the future.
