Breaking Bad Attention Habits Hacking the Phone

Breaking Bad Mode is a simple phone hack, making it easier to be present in the real world and save you time every day.

When your phone is put into Breaking Bad Mode, people (other than your selected favorites) will get an auto-reply with a custom message. This relieves you of some social pressure and will get everyone thinking about their digital lifestyle.
