Internet Addiction

We have worked diligently to develop tools to quantify smartphone and internet gaming addiction. One of the tools we have developed is the Smartphone Addiction Scale (SPAI), which has been peer-reviewed, published, and has been requested by many scholars worldwide for translation. We also have developed a tool for precise measurement of smartphone use called “know Addiction”. The app uses screen on and off times to calculate smartphone use duration and frequency, and uses algorithms to calculate markers of excessive smartphone use.
