What is ( OFFTIME )?

Whilst some fear to miss out, others just need to be available at all times. With ( OFFTIME ):

  • You can give your full attention to your partner and your boss (or not at all)
  • You can receive an overview, and easily manage the protocol, of what happened while you were away
  • You can restrict your access to the internet or certain apps (it will almost be like having your old Nokia back!). This will limit distractions from the outside world and lets you focus on what’s important at hand.
