Do you often want to check social media, and then find yourself disappearing for hours as you're consumed by the endless scrolling? Do you want your life back, but can't bear to delete social media altogether?
This is where News Feed Eradicator comes in.
News Feed Eradicator removes the most addicting part of Facebook, Twitter and other social networks - the feed - and replaces it instead with an inspirational quote. You can still use the other functionality as usual, you just won't get sucked into the attention hole.
