This app works great and gives you lots of interesting information about your usage with insights, graphs, etc. But, there a few minor kinks that need to be fixed. If you use your phone past midnight, it’ll keep counting and add it to the day which is very annoying. So, for example, if you pick up your phone and starting using it at like 11:00 pm and then close your phone at 12:01 am, it’ll say you already have an hour and one minute for the day when you’ve only been using it for one minute past midnight. Once it becomes a new day, it should automatically stop counting for the previous day and starting counting for the next. This also applies to the sleep feature. If you don’t go to bed until after midnight like myself and probably a large portion of us, the app will automatically consider you asleep at midnight. So, if you go to bed at 2 am (which I unfortunately do a lot) and get up at 10 am, the app counts a total of 10 hours of sleep instead of 8. It should just starting counting your sleep when you put your phone down for the last time. Like I said, this app is great in all other respects, I would be super happy if they worked out these few things in an update!
I have absolutely loved this application and it has saved me so much time. I went from using my phone for roughly three hours a day down to less than an hour a day. Some days, I’ll even use my phone for less than 20 minutes. The iPhone Bootcamp in Premium is especially challenging, but very much worth it if you’re serious about cutting down your screen time. It took me a couple tries to finally complete it 100%. I was wondering if a feature could be developed to turn off apps after a certain amount of time. Example: I use Instagram for business so I need to have it on my phone; however, after I have completed what I need to accomplish on the app, I tend to keep scrolling through it and waste a lot of time. I can’t delete it, because it is kind of a necessary evil for my photography side hustle. If I could set a 15 minute limit specifically for that app, that would be amazing. Ideally, Moment would close the app for me after that amount of time has passed and not let me in it for the rest of the day. Is that possible? Even if the feature can’t be made, I wanted to thank you for this application. I’ve found myself to be more intentional toward people and the daily situations I’m in since I downloaded it and I can’t thank you enough for that.
This app is a great idea and I would love if it worked. This first week or so I used the app, it would track my usage well, but then it started to lose my trust. The amount of time I spent on my phone started to grow a ton even though I felt like I was using my phone the same amount. I checked the usage (or whatever it’s called) tab in the app and the numbers the time it said I was using it throughout the day didn’t add up. For instance I would do the math based on what it said my pickups and usage time was and it would come out to more than an hour under what the overall total was. In my mind, I was like this makes sense they’re trying to sell a product that makes you decrease your phone usage, or at least makes you feel like you are decreasing your phone usage, so it makes sense to inflate the numbers to then just show the actual numbers once people buy the premium product or whatever it’s called. Now, I didn’t wanna just leave it at that, I wanted to be thorough, so I tracked my phone usage myself and compared it to the app’s purported usage and my hypothesis was correct and the app inflated your usage. Its too bad the developers have chosen to inflate the numbers, I think this is a great idea with great potential to actually help people use their phones less and connect with people around them more, but it’s part of a business model and has to make a profit so I understand why they have made the choices they have.
Installed this app on the advice of a friend who was really surprised when its features revealed how much screen time she was spending every day. Figured I could also benefit from something like that, so I installed it 3 months ago. Definitely made me realize I need to cut down on browsing aimlessly, but there are problems. For one, it’s not been very accurate in counting the minutes at least half a dozen times. (Sometimes it strangely fails to record time spent online). Got the updated version a few days ago, and it was really intrusive. The alerts that pop up by default were needlessly frequent & filled with language that made me feel like a 5 year old. I changed their frequency in the settings after a day of this moralizing tone. Interface text sounds pretty much the same—annoying as heck, especially when it constantly asks to be enabled to access Settings to connect to certain apps to collect more specific information about where you need to reduce screen time. Ultimately, I’m glad I have this app to check in occasionally to figure out when I need to log off. If you are one of those who are on some higher mission to attain great mindfulness, you can probably tolerate this app much better. I’m just not looking for that myself. I have meditation apps, and I just need to use this one as a simple counter.
I really want to use this app to decrease my time playing games or surfing the web. The problem is the app tracks ALL screen time and I use my phone a lot during the day for business (QuickBooks and email etc), I use fitness tracking apps for running, listen to self-help books in the car with Audible, and in the evening I will watch Netflix on my phone instead of traditional TV. I set the app to give me reminders for when I’ve been on too long because I want the reminders to tell me when I’m wasting time playing a game or surfing the web, but I don’t want the reminders when I’m working with clients, engaging in healthy activities, or watching a show! Very annoying and the only thing I can do is change my notifications before each app I use, which is time-consuming and unrealistic. It’s my understanding from the developer there’s no way to distinguish screen time by app when the phone is being actively used (apps can be removed from reporting) so I removed it from my phone because it just can’t do what I need it to do. I need it to only be “on” for certain apps and right now that seems impossible. Also separately I appreciate how candid the developer is about privacy but I don’t like how invasive this app is with tracking. If it did everything that worked for me I’d be more likely to trade-off with trust but not for what it is right now.
