Not happy 1/5
I want to able to see how many hours/minutes I spent on various apps...I don’t understand this “take a screenshot “ deal.
Time to take control of the cell phone 5/5
Moment gives numerical report of how much your cell phone is used each day. This gives you a point of leverage to keep phone use under control.
Just started and it’s already awesome 5/5
I really like how the developers explain how different features work, and how they prioritize privacy.
Great app for deterring phone use! 4/5
I first heard of this app from The Bert Show, so I thought I’d give it a try. I like to challenge myself, so I spent a few days being on my phone as normal to get an average usage time. After that, I tried to cut my usage time in half. This app made it so easy to achieve that goal! The o lot downside is that it randomly records huge amounts of time that I wasn’t on my phone, so there’s a glitch somewhere.
Good way to become conscience of phone time 3/5
Wow great app I hate it sometimes but it helps!
Live in the moment 5/5
Moment is one of those apps that doesn’t always make you happy but wakes you up to what you’re doing and what you shouldn’t be. The best things in life don’t always have to make you happy; but this app wakes me up to how much I’m on my phone for no reason at all. Would highly recommend for others who want to cut down on phone usage.
Works Well, Premium is Mind of Meh 3/5
Moment does a nice job of tracking how much time is spent with the screen on, how many times to phone is picked up, and offering advice for doing both less. However, it can be a little clunky in the way it records screen-on time, for instance listening to music with the phone in a speaker dock will all count as screen on time. This makes the program much less useful to me since I like to listen to music for a couple hours most days.
I paid for premium hoping it would give me the option to remove some apps from the recorded screen-on time, but this wasn’t actually an option. I do still have to give this app credit for helping me realize how often I’m using my phone, and then taking steps to reduce it. I’d probably give it 4-5 stars if I’d stayed with the free version.
Dara and stats we all should track 5/5
Thanks Moment for making it so much easier
Good app..... but 3/5
I was looking for something with more of a reward system to it. It’s also not very easy to understand and track your progress.
Requires Location Services to work 1/5
In order to use the app, you must have location services enabled. Complete waste of time.
Security issue?! 1/5
I’ve used this app for several months with no complaints until today. I wanted to see how I could change the repeated message that gets sent from my phone when I’m driving. I went to settings, touched texting and driving, and was surprised to see a security warning informing me that the page is unsafe and I should exit the app.
Moment clearly states that it does NOT provide customer service support, but I still submitted feedback via the app. I included screenshots so they could see what I saw. I’m going to delete the app, which I learned about from the today show, since I don’t want to risk my personal data more than I already have. I liked this app, so I’m disappointed.
Please make the “excluded app” features. When I use gps I don’t want Moment app to count my screen time.
I do not recommend this app 1/5
By Puppy face 16
This app is terrible instead of making you less stressed it makes you even mire stressed than before!!!!!!!
Love this app 5/5
I needed this in my life!! So much more aware of my phone use. I am more mindful because of it!
Disappointed; didn’t work right and no technical support to help. Wasted $3.99.
Battery screenshot issues 3/5
I've been using this app for a few months. The battery screenshot reminders are faulty and I wish they would fix it. The phone periodically resets the Battery section of the iPhone, so you cannot always get a screenshot of the last 7 days' usage. When I take a battery screenshot that has less than 7 days of usage, I get alerts for the next several days that I must have accidentally taken a screenshot of the last 24 hours instead of last 7 days. It's annoying. I wish the app would recognize and accept the screenshot with as much data as was available when the screenshot was taken without sending "oops" alerts for the next several days. I'm ready to delete the app if this isn't ever going to be adjusted.
Bad version 1/5
Current version does not accept battery screenshots and continues to give me multiple notifications saying I took a screenshot of the wrong thing.
Overestimate the phone usage 1/5
It is not accurate
Missing another language 3/5
Excellent app! missing a portuguese version
Could you translate??
Great concept, not completely accurate execution 4/5
By The Hurlor
It’s really helped me to be aware of my phone usage, so it’s helped for the reason I got it. However, it’s fairly inaccurate - hard to know why it counts the hours that it does, doesn’t even always correspond to what my battery use says, so that undermines the usefulness somewhat.
Doesn't merge iPad and iPhone 3/5
I'm not sure what the hype is about. it tracks screen time. that is useful but is it really a life changer? You could do that by hand. If it did detailed app usage that would be big. Apple blocks that which makes this app less useful. I already track usage with the battery app. Moment uses a hack to copy the battery app data so you can see it both places. Clever hack but no new functionality. Not the authors fault but still a major limitation. Android users must pump up the overall numbers. I believe the Android version does detailed app usage.
It is also not as useful as it could be if you switch a lot between iPhone and iPad. It tracks them separately which is not useful. you have to manually merge the data. freedom from iPhone isn't as meaningful if you cheat using the same apps on the iPad instead.
Helped curb my phone addiction 5/5
I used to use my phone for four to 5+ hours a day, which is scary. Moment helped me cut that down to an hour or less a day.
Recently I've started my old habits again, I'm about to go through the un- addiction process once more.
This app has been my motivation through this struggle, and I want to thank the team and creators for making it.
Isn’t accurate. Too complicated to use. 2/5
Just too many better options. Some apps need to run in the background (sleep tracking apps for example) so it says I’ve been on my phone 7 hours when I first wake up? Too buggy. Might be good for a 10 year old but there are many other better apps for tracking usage that are easier and more accurate. Don’t recommend. Gave it two stars because it tracks “Pick-ups” ok.
The app uses a lot of phone time 3/5
By Nancy from Cali
I’ve been using Moment for a little short of a week. What I don’t like is that the app itself has been active at night for an extremely long time. For instance it was on for 121 minutes last night at 1:00am. Another night it was on for 136 minutes. So this poses a couple of problems. First, what is it doing at this time? Compiling data and sending that to some nefarious group? Or just lamely tracking my usage in an incredibly slow fashion? Second, this time counts towards your daily usage. For instance, today when I woke up I discovered that I was in the “yellow” zone, because I had used my phone for over two hours! I would like the app to show usage by the user; not the phone itself. Also the developers should explain why the app is active for such long periods every night. It’s sketchy.
Force Quits constantly 2/5
We love the idea of this app, and have had it about 7 weeks, but it force quits constantly, so has been pretty useless. Can you help figure this out?
Great App! 5/5
By Game tester 101😎
Definitely does what it is meant to do and much more. The best feature about the app is that with moment premium you can set a limit on how much you can use your phone each day.
Free features are low 2/5
By mojtaba hosein nataj
Free features are low
Moment Rocks! 5/5
Thanks, Moment, for helping me see where my smartphone was dominating my life. Thanks to you, I’m building a new habit of putting it down for hours and picking up books again, instead.
You have to pay for everything and it’s so annoying, my parents won’t let me buy apps but they want me to spend less time on my phone. Don’t get this app if you don’t want to pay for anything.
This app is inaccurate 1/5
This app is turrible it doesn’t actually track it. It says I do more than I actually do
Ale r to r as well and t really do 5/5

The app was interesting and the UI was nicely designed.
However, I only used it 2 days as it requires to always have access to your location. So, I deleted it, since I could not find anything in the application data sets as to why it needed that info.
Something that tracks when my screen is locked doesn’t need to know where I am.
Thanks but no thanks. I’ll wait until the new iOS with the built in feature.
Great tool! 5/5
By Village idiot83
Useful to help restore balance with technology
Recent glitch? 4/5
Love this app, bought the premium, but it seems like recently it’s been miscalculating my hours? I have several apps on “no detection” mode, as I use them for work and personally don’t consider them to be leisure screen time, but it seems to not subtract those from my total anymore. Before it would recalculate them after a while and give me a more accurate number, but these days, it hasn’t.
Dumbest app ever 1/5
This app is stupid
The best thing about this app is that it makes you think about your time on your phone. The worst thing is everything else. The homescreen doesn’t use space effectively, the app tracking requires you to collect data yourself from the Settings app, and the pick-up/screentime data is unreliable. Maybe the functionality gets better with the Premium version, but why would I pay four dollars to enhance an app that is already barely functional? No thanks.
Would be amazing if the features worked... 2/5
Upgraded to premium and told it to exclude certain apps like Sleep Cycle. But it’s still counting everything. There’s no way to delete or exclude a day, so a few days of sleep cycle resulting in 9+ hours tracked of screen time means my averages will be off and I’ll never know how much time I’m on my phone. Yes the FAQ’s say to just lock the phone and it won’t track it. But I paid for premium so that I can exclude certain apps, a premium feature, and that feature doesn’t work.
Privacy issues 3/5
Needs a filter feature otherwise great 4/5
By Michael Witthaus
This is a great tool for controlling cell phone addiction however it needs a filter feature that allows certain apps to be excluded from measurement.
Specifically, navigation tools can’t qualify for cell phone overuse in my opinion, likewise listening to Spotify or a podcast are also questionable.
But everything you do on your phone is considered use; therefore, a 2 1/2 hour drive using Waze navigation is counted alongside Twitter, which isn’t right. Beyond that this is a great app!
Useless for me 1/5
It shows I’ve been in my iPhone for 4 or 5 hours when I know it’s 10 or 20 minutes. I think it wants you to lock your phone after every use but that’s just not the way I use my phone. Deleted.
So far (2 days), so good. 4/5
It’s been helpful already with lots of interesting insights and features.
And like a Fitbit does a good job of helping behavior. Fitbit gets me up and moving from my desk job every hour. Moment reminds me to get off the darn thing.
I did drop a star (and maybe should have been two) because the ability to monitor other family members is, IMHO, excessive. And surely outside my price range, not to mention it is not a one-time charge.
Monthly $15. Annual $45.
I thought that feature would have come with Standard “Premium” purchase.
I highly recommend a lifetime one-time charge, and at that point $45 might be excessive, but at least tolerable. And I found no mention of how many family members/devices could be included.
But at this point I’m keeping it running (if it doesn’t drain my battery). Time will tell.
Broken link 4/5
By So very happy!
Love the idea of this app; just installed it. But there's a link broken in the settings section. The "focus-stop texting and driving" redirects to a webpage that's no longer available.
Awesome eye opener 5/5

Has helped my daughter have healthy limits with her phone. Great features. Is it available for other platforms like droids?
Three things to fix 3/5
By Mr. Yesorno
1. Make it track time correctly. Often it’s tracking is obviously incorrect, messing up every other function of this app.
2. Make the app capable of tracking use of apps in real time. This is in order to set daily limits on individual apps, since there are both productive and distracting apps.
3. Make the “force me off” process more effective. Even when I have notifications from Moment set to alerts, the notifications disappear without pausing the screen or interfering with what I’m doing. This makes it easy to ignore if I just turn the volume down, and while “force me off” is happening, I can even change the settings in a couple of seconds to turn it off. This makes the app easy to bypass for any phone addict.
I paid $4 for this app, and I expect that these three issues will be fixed very soon.
Inaccurate but helpful 3/5
I installed this on my personal phone as well as my work phone. My work phone is on airplane mode from 3pm Friday afternoon until 5am Monday morning and doesn’t get touched at all over the weekends. I do my screen shots Monday morning when I get to work and for whatever reason it will put a bunch of time in on Saturday and Sunday even though it was 0 min prior to the screen shots. For instance this past weekend it added 50 min both sat and sun. No idea why. Makes me question the accuracy of the app in general. But still gives me reason to use the phones less. So for that it still earns a few stars. It at least makes me more aware of my usage.
Clunky and incomplete 1/5
In the description it says this app lets you “see which apps your use . . . set daily limits!” implying you can limit specific app usage (you can’t). It also tells you it must track your location “in order to know when you’re using each app” - unsure how the location and usage are connected. It proceeds to tell you the only way it knows how often you use each app is by you manually taking screenshots of the battery usage page in settings, which you could just look at anyway without the app. Do not get.
Awesome app, slight bug 4/5
There is a bug where if you are on your phone before midnight and the clock changes, it'll carry over some of the time from the day before, for example, at midnight, the start of a new day, it started me at an hour & 20 minutes right off the bat!
So far so good 5/5
