RescueTime

Analytics on your daily habits and productivity

Uday Singh- CEO, Epigrammar
RescueTime changed the way I approached my work. By being able to use a data-driven approach to seeing when I'm most productive, I was able to rebuild my work-day to optimize for calmness and give myself space for the parts of my day where I'm the most productive. It's worth paying for, and I can't even wrap my mind around how much time I've saved using it.
Fatima Sarah Khalid
I use this every single day. I love seeing the reports of what sites I've been browsing and my productivity score. I like using after 9-5 workday as well just to see what I do with my free time.
Øyvind Solstad ☀- Head of social media, VG
Also, you can connect it to Gyroscope (also on this list), so that you have the Rescuetime data inside Gyroscope.

Feedless

Fight your feed addiction

Feedless blocks your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds in Safari on your iPhone. You can use all other parts of the services as usual, we just block the feed. Take control of your time, and say goodbye to mindless scrolling!

The Verge
In October, Facebook began testing a News Feed minus the news. The test, which moved all shared articles to a separate feed called Explore, was designed to make it easier to see posts shared by friends and family. That test is still ongoing - but in the meantime, developer Ryan Orbuch is taking the experiment a step further.
