App keeps crashing 1/5
Cannot get the coach feature to work. Every time i take a screenshot of the battery usage page and then go back to the app it freezes and crashes
Knowledge is power! 5/5
The genius of this app is the way it gently helps you learn how you are REALLY spending time w/yr phone and helps you consider if that’s what you want. Also the setting that kicks you off the phone by being totally annoying at a time you set is brilliant.Yes, you have to take the initiative yourself but this is a great tool.DO use the screen-free zone function. It’s transforming my relationship w/ my phone at night.
Moment Improvements! Suggestions/bugs 4/5
Hello! I use this app everyday, and I have found it helpful for reducing my time on my phone! By hours.
Here are some developer suggestions/ bugs
First, at the moment, if I spend a large amount of time on my phone before and through midnight, the app doesn’t continues the number of hours I spent on my phone into the next day. (IE I spend 1 hour 30 minutes on my phone from 11pm to 12:30 am, the moment app lists that hour and thirty minutes on day 2, rather than only the 30 minutes after midnight on day 2.
Second, I would like to see a moment driving mode. For long drives, I often use Waze or google maps to direct me, but even though my phone is on, I am not actively using it. Would be helpful to pause the moment on the phone, and not have alerts during driving/ rack up the hours. I know I could turn off the moment app, and that might be the best solution, but I think there is a need because many use their phones as a navigation system.
Not true 2/5
By Jessica Lange80
It’s not true that the app tell the time wasting on another apps like instagram or whatsapp as advertised in the itunes screenshots.
Also at the begining it didn’t work for ios11. Totally disappointed.
Not What I Want 2/5
I would like to decrease my screen time, but this isn’t helping. Because of Apple security protocols, it’s difficult to get detailed information on individual app times. Moments has become a nagging nanny. I decided to delete it.
Battery screenshots don’t work on iPhone X 1/5

Worked fine on my iPhone 6:
Get your life back 5/5
Great app. Helpful and not intrusive
Um, I really like your app. The only thing is I wish I could set boundaries, where my phone would not let me get on certain apps at certain times. For instance, if I was at my job, it wouldn't allow me to play my games. I not sure if you have this in your premium offer, but you should give this to everyone. No one is going to pay for you to stop them from playing a game. You should give it to them for free.
Only tracks usage while unplugged, data is skewed 2/5
I leave my phone on while using certain apps that don’t require my eyes, like Audible or the phone app. This is counted in my daily limit. My sleep app counts towards my daily limit.
For daily reports, the app only tracks apps that are used while my phone isn’t plugged into a charger.
I wish I knew that before I spent money on it.
No hard feeling, but I’m deleting this app after a week of use.
Interesting, but... 3/5
This is an interesting app, more so on the iPhone than on the iPad. Does a great job doing what it says it’s going to do. Tracks the amount of time you use your phone / iPad, accurately. Just leave it running, and it’ll fill with data.
The thing is, while it’s useful to know how much you may use your device, it would be SUPER useful to be able to do something with the data it generates. Instead of just a timeline showing 5 minutes here, 15 minutes there, you should be able to tap in to that data, and see what app/s you were using at the time. You should be able to categorize that time as Productive or not (using email might be communicating with client / etc, while facebook might be wasting time at 8pm).
That way, you’re not just seeing an overall “I use my device too much or too little”. You’d see Oh, 30% of the time I’m using that device, I’m not actually wasting time. I’m advancing my goals.
Great accountability partner 5/5
Love moment. It tells me like it is without any judgment. I love how the app notifies you when you accidentally quit the application when closing other apps. And the coach offers great insights! Worth the download. Everyone needs to be on their phone less.
Invasive app always requires location be turned on 1/5
Yes, they give you a long explanation as to why that's necessary, but I don't buy it. There's no way that they truly need this data to track screen time.
Idk complicated 4/5
Good app good potential but hard to use.
This app is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING 5/5
By Diem Tran Ly
Before using this app, I couldn't deny that I was almost on my phone all the time. But this app really did give me an eye opener. I spend nearly FOUR HOURS on average on my phone everyday, which is ridiculous. It's sorta like a boot camp to get rid of your addiction. I RECOMMEND FOR THOSE WHO ARE ADDICTED! It's hard at first, but you'll pull through and it feels like a weight is off your shoulders. Everyone should have his app!
So far so good 4/5
One thing that would make this app better would be to add the option of a time limit for individual problem apps.
It does exactly what it should. 5/5
I love this app. I like knowing how much time I waste staring into my phone. I like knowing how disconnected I've been with the people around me, even if spending the day with them. Even without the premium features, just knowing how much time you've spent endlessly scrolling through social media helps to curb your use and keep the phone in your pocket while being present where you are. This app helps you Be Here Now.
I might actually pay for premium at some point, but the free version has plenty of functionality and isn't meant to just be an ad or teaser to constantly nag you to pay for premium.
I like the app and I like the dev's philosophy behind the app.
This app was pretty good overall, but really drains my battery
Great! Keeps me honest 5/5
Like it, some feature ideas 5/5
By Bear and Bunny
Love it, thank you! Would it be possible to make the tiny reminders more “aggressive”? E.g. louder or more vibration etc. i completely ignore them after 2 days, and that’s not good. Now I am back where I was before in terms of time spent on the phone. The “Force off” is nice feature, however sometimes I need to use my phone for real after i reached the limit and it gets annoying. With making the tiny reminders stronger I could actually save time for the real tasks without hitting the hard limit and being forced off
Mr Saif 1/5
I don’t liked and it’s not worth to have on your phone.
Love this app BUT the new update 1/5
Changing my 5 stars to 1 star bc the new update have some serious problems!!! I would give it zero star if i could. It's not tracking screen time correctly, ie I was on my phone for clearly over 30 mins but I got a notification only after 45 mins saying it's been 15 mins. What?! Not only that, it randomly records "pickups" during times when I’m on my phone the entire time. What’s going on?! The app was so good, I even purchased the full version but it has become such a bs now. Idk how exactly it tracks screen time anymore, the record for a certain day shows I picked up my phone at 11 am but that day I didn’t touch my phone at all from 6 am till evening. And it randomly tracks RANDOM pick up times. There’s 60-90 pickups per day for no reason. Didn’t know I would regret buying the premium -_-
Update: the app is tracking screen time correctly now, but there’re still so many random “pickups”, when will that fix?
Highly recommended 5/5
You should use this.
It’s bad 1/5
By None of u buisness
It’s wastes battery, doesn’t even track, and requests you to keep it
1 Improvement Idea (Still 5 Stars) !!! !! 5/5
1 Improvement Idea would be to have an option to allow to schedule “Screen-Free Time” well in advance sort of like one can do so with an alarm.
For example, would really really really love to have an option (& all of my friends who use this app agree) to make sure that my “Screen-Free Time” is always scheduled for entire Sunday in advance without having to always set it up automatically.
Moment team please help! It would be a BIG HELP for many out there & I’m sure many would love to have this option as well, which would improve the feature & make the Moment app even better!!!
But still 5 Stars . . . . Thank You so much & keep up the great work Moment team !!! !!
P.S. You guys are our greatest hope for our society- -for keeping our eyeballs in place & before they dry out completely !
Everyone needs this App! 5/5
This app is a real eye opener! I knew my phone was a big part of my life but I did not realize how big of a part! This app showed me how to be in control of my phone and now my phone is no longer in control of me. I am getting my life back and more hours every day living life 👍
Moment literally has me fuqed up like it tells you stuff man get this apppppp
Screenshot reminders 4/5
Daily reminders to take a screenshot are very inconsistent. Sometimes i get them in the morning, other times, i can get them well into the evening, when i can't take the screenshot anymore because the last 24 hours after a day has passed is far different than when it has just began.
I set a timer on my phone for twenty minutes and messed around on my phone for 20 minutes. When the timer ended the app said 34 minutes.
This app is perfect for someone who committed to spending less time on their phone and reclaiming those hours in the day.
I highly recommend the upgrade. The phone bootcamp has been a total game changer for me. Motivational, insightful, and just awesome. This is an app that offers real value to my life- not many can claim that.
Great idea 5/5
This has been great to see how much I actually use my phone - trying to reduce screen time and this app is perfect for it. 5/5
Useful but not working on iPad 1/5
The latest version doesn't work on my iPad. It might be because iOS 11.
Buggy and will drive you nuts! 1/5
By Napoleon Bunnypart
First thing it tells me when I woke up this morning was that I was 5h47 above my daily maximum. This at 6.50 AM !..:then it wouldn’t stop sending me alarms, even when I force-quit it. I thought I would have to just delete the stupid thing. I finally managed to deactivate and I am not touching it with a 10 ft pole until the developer fixes this. I am sorry I fell for it and I paid premium!....
I wish it had more features in the free version 4/5
This is a good, pretty accurate app.
However, I would like it if it included more features in the free version, and if it had a tutorial and was a little more clear on how to get to all the features.
Great app 5/5
Love the features, easy to use.
Annoying but useful 4/5
By tbh erin
I think this is a great app and good idea. The only problem is I think they don’t give a lot to people that aren’t members. I would love to pay for it especially how cheap it is but i don’t have money in my budget for it. Even as a non member i still use it and still think it’s useful though.
Eye Opening! 5/5
It’s hard to tell how much TIME we spend on this little handheld computer we call our phone! The first day I used this app, I was conscious of my usage and eager to see how little I had used the phone. I was blown away to see that I had spent over 5 hours on it! All I could think was, “What would I be doing without this device during those 5 hours?”, and was shocked to recognize that I’d lost touch with the life-building activities I’d engaged in before I got a smartphone.
This app has changed all that. It’s eye-opening, and can definitely be life-changing. I have cut down my usage by over half, and am much more aware of the time lost on it.
This is the BEST app I have ever downloaded, and I highly recommend the Premium version. Well worth the money.
Crap App 1/5
Zero accuracy, I can be on my iPad for an hour it’s reports 12 minutes. Completely useless. WTH and what’s with this 4.6 rating someone explain.
Doesn’t always track time 2/5
Seems pretty sketchy...
Became essential quickly 5/5
I am down in phone usage about 80% after a month. Best app I ever got.
Total Crap 2/5
Doesn’t work. Waste of time.
Just doesn’t work 1/5
It literally has said I’ve been on for five minutes or less each night when I’ve watched at least an hour of amazon or Netflix.
Great app! 5/5
Great AP! Really helps me keep track of how much time I’m on my phone. Love the alerts, telling me my previous days’s timing, because I’d never check and wouldn’t be aware if it. Just wish they had an app for MacBook.
Doesn't track screen time accurately. 1/5
If you're buying this to track your screen time, don't waste your money. I was happy and thought it was working great, but then realized that sometimes I would spend a half hour or hour straight on my phone, but moment would say I only spent a few minutes for the entire day. Sometimes it tracks okay, and other times not at all. What's the point of using this to stay under certain amount of time if it could be an hour off without you realizing it? I tried to contact the creator, but received no response. I paid for something that doesn't work. Hopefully he fixes this, but until then, it's very disappointing. The boot camps do have some very good ideas on how to limit usage.
Premium would be great, if it worked 2/5
Many of the features I was looking for are in the Premium version.
However, I only get an error message when I try to purchase Premium (even after reinstalling the app and checking to make sure I could buy things in other apps).
I contacted the email address given in the app, but I haven't heard anything back.
Has potential 1/5
By Peter nyc
If it worked as it says it could be very useful. That is it can keep tabs on how often you use the phone most of the time, occasionally it thinks the app you last used and stopped using it thinks you have been using for the last five hours! The thing of app detection via battery usage does not work that well. I take screenshots as instructed but the app says do it again because it says not time is showing when in fact time is showing? Also there’s no support for the app so I’m assuming it will be gone soon. I should also say I have the paid version.
The app detection is not working after multiple attempts it’s worked a couple of times but not worked for the other 100. I’m assuming the app uses OCR, I have an iPhone SE I like a small phone, I’m thinking that maybe because the SE has a small screen and the information is on sometimes 3 lines it gets confused?
My favorite app 5/5
I love this app. Skip the free and pay for the real thing. I've cut my phone usage down over an hour and half. I love the reminders and the daily stats.
Great app, useful and easy to use 5/5
I don't recommend apps very often but this is one I'll be telling friends and family about.
By Mercenary Pawn
There should be an easier way to exclude which apps count towards screen time and which don’t.
I use a sleep app every night (SnoreLab) that tracks my snoring, so automatically when I wake up this app tells me I’ve been on my phone for eight hours. I can’t seem to find a way to fix this issue. I tried using the battery screenshot function, switching it to daily instead of weekly. That hasn’t helped at all.
So, though this app comes highly recommended, it is nearly useless to me.
A parent's dream! 5/5
By J.J. Johnson author
We had been struggling to find a way to track our 12 yo son's ACTUAL screen time (not just self-reported). Moment is a DREAM bc (1) it lets him and us know how close he is to the daily limit we set, and (2) it does NOT count listening to audiobooks or music (if the screen is off). My husband and I use it on our phones, too, just to see how we're doing. We use the free version but just want to say THANK YOU, MOMENT!!!
By Dog lover🐶🐕🐩
I love Moment. Tbh, it has really changed the way I use my iPod. I use it less now and it feels great to be Bored and Brilliant (if I may say). The Bored and Brilliant course gets you on your feet and really helps you to see the world instead of a colorful screen. I really love Moment and I recommend this application to anyone who wants to spend less time on their phones. FYI: you do have to pay a monthly fee for the Moment Premium.
To creator of Moment: PLEASE MAKE MOMENT PREMIUM FREE FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T PAY THE MONTHLY FEE IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU DID I understand if you don’t want to. Thanks so much for this application enjoy the rest of your day.
