Is it concisely described?

A miniature stickman app that shows up when you've been browsing social media for too long. It starts with pantomime, hinting that it might be time to take a break. If you ignore him he tries harder until he gets you to close the addictive apps for a while.
  • An amusing way to keep tech addiction under control.
How it works
The app runs in the background. If it detects any of the known addictive apps being used for more than a few minutes the stickman shows up.
For a while it silently watches you browse the social media, occasionally shrugging or shaking his head in disapproval.
If you don't take a hint and stop binge browsing, the stickman starts messing with your phone and making it amusingly diffucult to continue.
