We started Aro for our own families and we want to help yours...

It’s no secret that screen time is one of the biggest issues facing families today. And we’re not just talking about the kids! Joey and I both struggle with this amazing, captivating, infinitely-powerful tool that we call a smartphone.

We knew something had to change. We wanted to be better for our families and we wanted our families to be better.

So we created Aro. Aro leverages the science of habit formation and motivational design to ensure parents and kids don’t miss out on what’s most important by helping reclaim time spent on their phones. We've seen the benefits in our own families, and now we want you to experience Aro in yours.

If you’re here,
you get it.

We all wish we could take a break from our phones. So we created the most effective way to do it.
