@AnujAdhiya @sandracarden or socialized so I can compete with friends/colleagues for the lowest score. Check out Forest for a version that gamified based on 30 minute intervals of NOT checking your phone: http://www.producthunt.com/posts...

@AnujAdhiya done (I think - haven't tried it yet but just discovered it/installing it). Check out https://twitter.com/forestapp_cc Oh right, @alwaysunday already mentioned it.

@chrismessina yeah, very similar. I started with Moment but didn't like the location tracking requirement.

I feel like we should give it a week and post our results. I'm currently trying to be less attached to my phone, so it'll be interesting to quantify my usage!

@syswarren I've been leaving my phone in "do not disturb" mode all day and I find that it cut down on those knee-jerk reactions to pull out my phone when it vibrates. Maybe this tool will help me quantify my behavior.

I'm really curious how this technically works on iOS. What kind of process is running in the background?

@emieljanson And how much battery life is it eating?

@emieljanson it seems that the app uses location tracking. It's very good product, but as I've (as many others iphone users) battery issues I can't use it on a daily purpose.

@noahkagan They use lo-res location tracking, so the battery drain should be minimal.

@digit Thanks for the heads up!
