Being in the electronic generation, things are being made to be electrical even to the books we read are now in the electronic format called PDF.
A disadvantage of this PDF is the high rate of distraction attached to it due to social media notifications and other notifications. Like when one is reading a book on a mobile device a notification comes in… One tries to check it out… More notifications comes in, and we’ve forgotten we’re reading a book.
But here we are providing a solution to distractions that may occur when one is reading by introducing a feature on the phone which is called Screen Pinning
