Hey everyone. I'm the designer and developer of this app. I'd love to hear any feedback you have for it. Bring it! The app just launched today, and I hope it's super useful for people :-)
@kevinholesh what a wonderful idea. Sometimes just being aware of your own habits helps you to change them. I think we all need this reminder on mobile. I'm excited to try this.
@davemorin You hit the nail right on the head. I built this to make me aware of my own habit of looking at my iPhone a bit too much. As a little experiment, I had a few of my early testers guess how much time they spend on their phone. They were all about 50% too low in their guesses and were surprised to learn the real count. I know I was surprised too.
Would love to see how many *times* I check my phone each day :-)
@SDMattG I completely agree. That's first on my list of things to build next.
Just came across this app today. It runs in the background of your iPhone, tracks your usage, and allows you to set limits (and become aware) of how much time you waste on your phone everyday. Pretty slick.
@gioismeyo Thanks for the kind words, Nick. I hope the app brings awareness to how much you're using your phone. I know it did for me :-)
This reminds me of Mobile Flow, a simple app to avoid digital distractions. cc @ryandawidjan @zmh
i love this and the philosophy behind it. I try to take an internet/phone shabbas on Saturdays to help focus on high level stuff (this, of course, becomes 2nd to when the startup is blowing up :P)
@eriktorenberg Thank you, Erik! I'm super happy you like my approach to this problem. I don't want to come across as too "iPhone's are ruining society." I'll have to try an iPhone retreat this Saturday :-)
