Use your phone to tell others when you can be disturbed.

Sick of people coming up and bugging you whilst your at work? Sick of people expecting you to drop everything for their requests? And with no regard to the fact you have a deadline in 2 hours?

This is the malaise of the contemporary work place. No walls, loud office environments

Offices are social and noisy environments, and people can walk up to your desk to get your attention, regardless of what you are doing. You could consider kennelling a Rotweiller under your desk. However, for less extreme measures, you can use Bit Busy Now, and stop them before they stop you...from working.

Bit Busy Now it is a notification app that you set for the period of time you don’t want to be disturbed and then leave it to do its thing. Its thing is to tell others whether you can be disturbed or not.

When running, it’s simple and bold graphics communicates through the universal traffic light system: Red meaning “Do not disturb”and green meaning “Feel free to bug me”. More astute co-workers will read the display to see how much time is left and then come back then. Regardless, this simple app, makes good use of the time when your phone sits on your desk, not doing much.

This way you can harness the power of your phone to act as you own personal sentry.
