More than just a box
Aro is more than a box for your phone. Built on the principles and science of habit formation, Aro is the first app that pairs with a device to help you put down your phone. Patent-pending technology enables the app to automatically connect to the smart box using Bluetooth. No pairing necessary.
Aro automatically connects to your phone, tracks your time away, and charges your phone while you recharge.
It's your guide
The Aro app gamifies the experience of being off your phone. The app automatically connects to the Aro Home device, measures the time you spend away from your phone, reminds you to take breaks from your phone, shows you data to improve your phone habits, and even lets you connect and compete with others.

How it works
The Aro app and Home device make putting down your phone easy and fun.
Install the Aro app
Aro is the first app that pairs with a device to help you put down your phone. It helps reduce screen time by gamifying the experience of being off your phone.
Drop your phone in the Aro Home device
The app automatically connects to the Aro Home device and starts measuring the time you spend away from your phone. No pairing necessary.
Engage in real life
Now the good stuff. Go enjoy intentional time with loved ones, focus on work, or unwind from a busy day. Aro will even charge your phone while you recharge.
Feel proud of yourself
The Aro app shows you data to improve your phone habits. Instead of feeling bad about your screen time you can feel proud about your intentional off-screen time.
Out of sight. Peace of mind.
We'll hold your phone for a while so you can focus on the good stuff.
In conversations, at the dinner table, in moments alone.
Take a breath
Between meetings, before bed, on a walk.
For creativity, for family time, for new hobbies.

“It’s an easy way to be unplugged, and I don’t feel the stress to be on my phone constantly. I also love seeing my screen time decline!"
“Our family talked about trying a tech drawer, but the problem is we never did it. Aro got me excited to have something we would actually use that would solve our issue.”
