Binky is your digital pacifier, keeping you satisfied while you connect with a fake messaging app

If you need to constantly scroll through social media apps, but are sick and tired of reading all of the bad news on these sites, you might want to install Binky on your phone. This is sort of a digital pacifier because it is designed to mimic all of the things that you like about reading Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, except the stories are as bland as white rice.
