Absolutely love this idea but why does it need to use GPS constantly in the background?
@nbrempel GPS has to be running to run in background & track. We have reduced it to minimal power by using cell tower locations. (2-4% a day) :) We also plot where you are spending time on your phone.
@shashwatpradhan makes sense :). It's too bad the iOS API doesn't expose that information.
@nbrempel lets hope things change with iOS 10
Hello Product Hunt! Today is the National Day of Unplugging, where people try to take a digital detox. Using Gamification techniques like trophies, streaks & points we are keeping users self-motivated to reduce smartphone addiction. With ‘Unplug’, people can also automatically track the time spent on their iPhone & the number of times they check it! Here is our media kit on Medium: https://medium.com/@shashwatprad... Announcement on our Blog: http://emberify.com/blog/unplug-... Looking forward for your feedback. 😺
Track how much time you spend on your phone daily, automatically. Control your phone addiction with a daily limit & awards for spending lesser time on your phone.
Why this app will use GPS? That's the only thing preventing me to try it!
@anmol_malhotra4 I had the same issue but you can block it in settings
@anmol_malhotra4 Because devs can't actually know when your phone is locked/unlocked, they have to guesstimate using motion. At least that's what I learned from my attempt to build something like this.
