Mobido is working on a cure for smartphone addiction

Look around. The people in your everyday life are glued to their smartphones.

This addiction might be ok if it was making them happier, but it is not. There is a growing body of research showing many social networks and social media are making us more lonely and depressed.

Mobido is creating the Here app, with the goal of helping people put down their smartphones and start talking to the interesting people in their everyday life.

Most will be short conversations, but some will evolve into friendships, business opportunities, and maybe even the love of their life.
