What is Bugbean?
Bugbean is focused on helping with proactive help for people with mental illness. We have been developing and fine tuning phone usage data collection for 2.5 years with our free app AntiSocial. Removing bugs, reducing battery usage, data usage and memory overhead to support over 15,000 different phone models.
We are now using this proven data collection technology, and pairing this with extensive research to create a clinical, evidence based mental health monitoring tool. Zafty is developing this tool, which will sit as an simple app on users phones and actively predict mental heath events. Complex algorithms drive the heart of Zafty.
Well why not if you we can help a single person it will all be worth it.
Measure and compare your phone habits with others, reduce phone usage with blocking modes. antisocial.io 350,000 people can't be wrong.

Lifebroker at it's heart was a data analysis company that tracked consumer behaviors and buying patterns.

For a long period we operated with a keen angle of deception, never telling people what we really did... we build apps was the common line. We even had a satire based website that you can still see here.
