Great app 5/5
I had a little glitch with tracking for a couple of days but it seems to be working again. Does what it says and help me be aware of my usage. The most eye opening thing to me is when I saw at my current rate of usage I would spend 31 years of my life on my phone. That blew me away. So now I’m working on making each day’s use less than the last. I’m down to 20 years now. Still too much but I’m getting there.
Great attempt 5/5
This is an app that really should be provided by Apple itself. The limitations placed on app developers make it difficult to create a comprehensive app to track, limit, manage app usage. This author has found loopholes to “hack” a solution, but it’s not an easy/seamless user experience (because of the aforementioned limitations placed by Apple). I am not asking Apple lift these limitations. Rather, I’m asking Apple to buy out this app and integrate it with iOS in a way that helps people. We are moving into a world where everyone’s heads are down staring at their phones... constantly. I don’t think Steve jobs imagined this when he brought the modern smartphone to bare in 2007. Apple started this problem, it now bares the responsibility to help fix it.
Great app 4/5
Love the app, really helped a lot with my phone addiction. But stop working after the latest iOS update. Please help fix the bugs...
10 Stars!!! 5/5
Love this app!!!!!
Perfect for me 5/5
By The Zoltan
The first day I got this app, I was consistently over five hours in my phone every day. After using it for months, I decided to buy the full version, and it has no joke been the most helpful app on my entire phone. The idea of going a whole day without my phone was impossible before I got it, but now I spend less than an hour on it every day, and am working on cutting it down even less. Thank you so much to the creator!!
It's good for its purpose, now can you get me to stop picking up my phone??? 😬
I’m in charge of my life again 5/5
Moment was one of several tools that I put in place to rein in my digital life and begin to live more intentionally and in the moment. Perhaps the most powerful thing that Moment provides is the simple awareness of your current digital habits. I’m convinced that if most people had a decent idea of how much of their waking life is spent on their phone, that alone would make them want to change it. It did it for me. I’m in control of my life again. Moment has played a major part in that.
Tracking when screen is off 1/5
By Engagder 11
It says that moment is supposed to track only when the screen is on however when I’m driving listening to music (with the screen off) it still tracks it. I have a long commute so in total for a day it adds an additional 1 hour to my screen time because I was listening to music with the screen off and I feel ripped off.
Great UI, great functionality, really effective 5/5
Get your life back 5/5
I've been using Moment for a few months and was astounded how many hours of my life were just disappearing mindlessly. Tracking the number of pickups showed me how unintentional my phone use was. The (free) 14 day coaching is awesome. Encouraging me to delay using my phone until midday let to my lowest usage ever. And stop taking the phone into the bathroom-that's just gross! How did we get to this point? Who knows, but if you want to get a grip on your phone use and get hours of your life back, try this app. If you like it, pay the guy for developing it. It's only fair and who knows what he can build next?
Make the icon a little darker 5/5
By Hannah Giovetsis
I love the app, i just think the icon could be a little more vibrant.
Excellent program, some minor issues 5/5
This is a great program, gave me a ton of insight, but I do need to warn that while running (it needs to run in the background to work) that it makes some games skip frames on my iPad Pro, even 2D ones. It also adds a small amount of battery usage, but is not a major issue.
Elegant and Efficient 5/5
By Tahera N
Awesome cool app .
App crashing 3/5
Just downloaded and so far I like it though the app keeps crashing on me so it won't track my screen time.
Superb ! 5/5
A must if you are wanting to break free from your phone
Perfect app 5/5
Easy to use app to set up and show my kids just exactly how much they really look at their phones! I just wish that Apple would allow for more control of the phone to parents of minors! I would like to give my kids a ‘permit’ to teach them how to drive before they get their license.
Good concept, ok execution 2/5
I like the idea of this app, but I keep running into bugs. The big one being, I don't seem to get weekly insights no matter how long I use the app. I regrettably purchased the premium version before I discovered this issue, and before finding out there was no technical support available for this app. Since the money is gone regardless, I'm going to go through the "boot camp" before deleting the app, but I see no reason to sink memory space into it when I can just glance at my daily battery usage in settings periodically to track my screen time.
In short, it's a noble premise but there may be better ways to reduce screen time than purchasing yet another app.
Click your phone?? 5/5
Didn't realize how dependent and how many hours I spend on the phone - great app for enlightenment
Mental health therapist using it as a tool for clients 4/5
I am a mental health professional and I recommend this to clients, parents, and utilize it myself. It is a great tool, I would give it 5 stars if it didn’t require location services to be on at all times. Several of my clients will not use it for that reason. I can’t imagine why this is neccesary.
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.
حقيقة صادمة 5/5
حقيقة صادمة سوف تعرفها عن الوقت الذي تقضية في استخدام الاجهزة شكراً لمن صمم البرنامج
Very cool app that reveals how much time we’re actually spending on our phones, specifically which apps take up most of our time, and it even enables you to set timers/alerts for the day. I think this app is going to help me with my phone addiction.
Moment Tracking Even when not in Background? 4/5
I love this app and it's been super helpful in managing my screen time. However, there's one concerning feature for me: moment is not stopping tracking even when I force quit the app. If this is an intentional feature, that's great and actually pretty convenient, however on Moment's website it maintains that the app MUST be open in the background to track usage and that once it's force quit it won't track. I'm just concerned about privacy is all. I get tiny reminders every 15 minutes and my settings show that moment is using my location (purple arrow) even when the app has been force quit and isn't in my background for over half a day.
not working 1/5
Don't know what exactly I'm doing wrong but I could be on my device for maybe 10 minutes and the minutes on app don't go up at all as I'm on device ....
Does what it says it does 5/5
Does a good job of making me use my phone less. Kind of annoying sometimes, but works well.
Rating Moment App 4/5
By Alyssa Angelina
Moment works very well for our family and has helped my 2 teenagers to cut back on their screen time. My only complaint would be that when I take a screenshot of my battery screen, I get a "Oops, you have done the 24 hour battery detection, try again" error. I have to do it several times before it works correctly.
Please fix! 2/5
Best app ever but with the new update it crashes! Please fix, thank you!
Love this for my teenage son 5/5
It doesn't lock my son out when he's over the limit, not sure why, but tells me how long he's been on... That's all I need, OurPact can also lock down his phone whenever I want it to! That's been nice too.
Awesome app 5/5
I love this app!!!!
Excellent w/ a few dismissible bugs 4/5
Great app and has helped me a lot. Only annoyance is that if you clear it from your history it stops tracking and if you don't reselect it after powering off your phone it doesn't track.
So nice to be able to track my time on my phone and be able to set goals and limits for myself- it's really helped :)
Great way to be more mindful 5/5
This has helped me become more mindful of how much time I spend on my phone. I like to use the screen free time function as it helps me stay off my phone and be more productive.
Love this app BUT the new update 2/5
Changing my 5 stars to 1 star bc the new update have some serious problems!!! 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?!
It is the best 5/5
I'm quite thankful for this app.
One of the apps you need to have on your phone. 5/5
When I guessed I stayed on the phone for 3 hours per day and moment showed I actually spent more than 6 hours per day in the phone. I was shocked. And carefully validated for a couple of days later. Moment was right. I am now spending less than 3 hours on the phone and I found my life back.
Pretty cool 5/5
I have no complaints
Great app for changing habits 5/5
This app has really helped me change my attitude toward my phone. I haven't used the boot camp--I don't think I'm there yet--but seeing how much time I spent on particular apps and how frequently I pick up my phone has made me much more aware of my habits. I set my initial limit at 2h:30m per day, thinking I can't possibly hit my limit, except maybe on airplane flights. Boy was I wrong! Because Moment made me more aware, I was eventually able to delete my biggest time-waster apps. I'm down to a normal average of 1h:30m or so. I have an extra hour per day. That is huge.
Great app! 5/5
Helps me to keep on track and not use my phone as much. Thanks Moment!
Very Useful 5/5
Really helpful app, even just making use of the free version. It's interesting to get a peak at my phone use habits.
Good app works like intended 5/5
Ive actually reduced my screen time its very eye opening
Love it 5/5
This app has really helped me to become more mindful of not only how much time I'm spending on my phone- but how I'm using that time as well- it's simple and easy to navigate and recommend it to anyone that is looking to cut back in their screen time
Very helpful 5/5
By Play piano tiles!
If you’re looking for an app that helps you know how much time you’re spending on your phone, this is it. Moment has helped me a lot.
Decent and Useful 3/5
By Abbisnail Giovannetti
I like this app because it does help me to stay off my phone some. I wish that it would not track or count the time I used on specific apps of my choice like camera and calculator. I like the feature that dings until you get of after a certain point it's just a little annoying when I'm past my time but I have to do something like call my mom or use the calculator. Also, it's pretty annoying having to take a screen shot everyday day/week in order for it to track my time. Overall it's a useful app but slightly annoying.
Super Awesome! 5/5
By Reggae Ball
The developer Kevin is super awesome, super responsive (I pretty much always owe him a late response haha) and continues to improve and take my suggestions into account. Thanks so much!
The app itself is great, I use this and one of his other app Focus (which reminds you to not use your phone while driving).
The battery issues really seem to have gone away from when it used to eat up a lot of space, but it was worth it anyways :)
iOS can be really tricky to code around with all their restrictions, but Kevin is really creative to getting around some of these issues. For example how he uses screenshots to track the app usage (one iOS note that took me a while to figure out is that it won't track specific app usage if you're using your phone while it's charging, since it's only accounting for battery usage in that section of the settings. But that's the best possible solution under iOS right now) :)
Thanks again Kevin!!!
Functionality of free version limited 3/5
I don’t find the free version to be providing any value add. I know they’ve got a have add-one but the current functionality doesn’t make me want to buy extras.
Excellent app for monitoring your screen time! 5/5
Recommended - I actually downloaded this app because of a recommendation from a guest on Colbert - and because I'm a big fan of the Note to Self podcast. I was so impressed after only a week's use that I upgraded to Premium - a very reasonable price for some very helpful features. It's a simple but powerful app that tells you at a glance how much and how often you pick up and use your devices - and which apps you spend (waste??) the most time on. The only clunky thing is the necessity to take screenshots of your Battery Use screen to track your apps - but the developer explains why this is. The developer provides an easy to understand and helpful user guide - rare in apps! He also appears to be responsive to users, though I haven't yet had to contact him.
Get this app while the price is still low!
Gave me so much time back 5/5
After using the app to track how much I was using my phone, I finally got sick of the hours I was logging staring at my phone each day and bought the full version of the app. The "phone boot camp" feature of moment truly helped me to kill my addiction and get hours of my life back each day! Thank you Moment for helping me to live in the moment once again!
a blessing 5/5
