An App That Reminds You to Unplug - NYTimes.com

Sign of the times

It’s called the Sabbath Manifesto app, and it is meant to be a way to make a pledge to disconnect from technology.

The brainchild of a Jewish organization called Reboot, the Sabbath Manifesto app encourages people (of all faiths or none at all) to participate in a one-day movement away from technology. This National Day of Unplugging is scheduled for March 4 to 5, as a way for people “to return to the values inherent in a modern day of rest: reconnecting with family, friends and the world around them,” according to Reboot.
