As I read an article in the New York Times about how the screen of our smartphones is addictive and consumes our attention. And journalist Nellie Bowles tried to switch her iPhone screen to grayscale.

Apparently, this lowers your “enthusiasm” for using your phone browsing the internet, social media interaction, and all the apps where color makes the experience.

Since I left Social Media, what captures my attention is reading, using email, writing (like I’m doing for this post), but I wondered if I’m in control or not. Does such a simple change allow me to assess what kind of interaction I have with my smartphone?

I decided to try. Would you?
