NewsWatch Recently Featured the “Phobia Free” Mobile Application by Virtually Free on National Television
Date:11/17/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 17, 2013

The “Phobia Free” mobile application by Virtually Free was featured on NewsWatch as part of its popular segment, AppWatch, that takes a look at the latest and coolest mobile applications and services on the iOS and Android market. Andrew Tropeano, host of AppWatch, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how the app can help users get over their fear and phobia of spiders.

Everyone is afraid of something; however, there is a difference between being afraid and having a phobia. Phobias are defined as having a persistent and sometimes irrational fear of an object or situation. A perfect example is arachnophobia, the fear of spiders. For some people, this phobia is so intense that it prevents them from normal activities like travelling, cleaning, or going into a dark room.

Phobia Free is an app that has helped thousands of people get over their fear of spiders. The app uses augmented reality and gamification to desensitize people to spiders and to understand them better. With the app, users can learn to relax when they see one, they can watch a virtual spider climb on their hand and take a picture, they can see situations from a spider’s perspective, and can play games involving finding spiders and helping them survive situations. All of this is meant to help users cope with their phobia. The technology is so successful that the psychiatrists and developers that made it are moving into other phobias like flying, heights, and social anxiety.
