  • Amazing App - Request a Feature? May 2, 2018

    By RykerH
    I have absolutely loved this application and it has saved me so much time. I went from using my phone for roughly three hours a day down to less than an hour a day. Some days, I’ll even use my phone for less than 20 minutes. The iPhone Bootcamp in Premium is especially challenging, but very much worth it if you’re serious about cutting down your screen time. It took me a couple tries to finally complete it 100%. I was wondering if a feature could be developed to turn off apps after a certain amount of time. Example: I use Instagram for business so I need to have it on my phone; however, after I have completed what I need to accomplish on the app, I tend to keep scrolling through it and waste a lot of time. I can’t delete it, because it is kind of a necessary evil for my photography side hustle. If I could set a 15 minute limit specifically for that app, that would be amazing. Ideally, Moment would close the app for me after that amount of time has passed and not let me in it for the rest of the day. Is that possible? Even if the feature can’t be made, I wanted to thank you for this application. I’ve found myself to be more intentional toward people and the daily situations I’m in since I downloaded it and I can’t thank you enough for that.

  • Useful, but too preachy Jan 17, 2019

    By MiralMS
    Installed this app on the advice of a friend who was really surprised when its features revealed how much screen time she was spending every day. Figured I could also benefit from something like that, so I installed it 3 months ago. Definitely made me realize I need to cut down on browsing aimlessly, but there are problems. For one, it’s not been very accurate in counting the minutes at least half a dozen times. (Sometimes it strangely fails to record time spent online). Got the updated version a few days ago, and it was really intrusive. The alerts that pop up by default were needlessly frequent & filled with language that made me feel like a 5 year old. I changed their frequency in the settings after a day of this moralizing tone. Interface text sounds pretty much the same—annoying as heck, especially when it constantly asks to be enabled to access Settings to connect to certain apps to collect more specific information about where you need to reduce screen time. Ultimately, I’m glad I have this app to check in occasionally to figure out when I need to log off. If you are one of those who are on some higher mission to attain great mindfulness, you can probably tolerate this app much better. I’m just not looking for that myself. I have meditation apps, and I just need to use this one as a simple counter.

  • Just One improvement idea Sep 15, 2017

    By Nikkie Z
    Love this app and I recommend it. The free version is great and simple. But I upgraded and also like the features in the upgrade - it was worth it for me. I like that I can see not just how much time I'm wasting but also where (in which apps). Now there's just one thing that I really wish could be improved... on the home screen you see how much time you spent on he phone each day and it's a horizontal bar graph with bars colored red yellow or green depending on whether you spent a ton of time on your phone (red) or just a bit (green). But! Here's the issue... if you go over your limit your bar is just the width of the screen so you don't see a visual of ***how far*** beyond the limit you are. I recommend make g the bars visually proportional to the hours you spend, making the scale from let's say 0-15 (for those who have a serious problem). I say this because my limit is 2 hours but I am often over, and on my screen I see the same red bar whether I get 2.5 or 7 hours and it's not motivating. If I could see incremental improvements in the bars, it would help. Thanks for considering this change!! #rantover

    Attempts to provide a lot of useful info... "Reduce phone use" course was beneficial... But, the screen time tracking tech it uses is way off some days when I'm absolutely sure I did not send X time on phone. Just annoying is all... But, it has still made a big positive effect on reducing phone use

    Moment has dramatically improved the quality of my life. I found myself frustrated with my phone usage and one day I googled “How to use your phone less” and Moment was the first thing to come up and I remember on the first day of the 14 day bootcamp when it asked me not to use my phone for 30 minutes, it was so much harder than I had anticipated. Over time, it got easier and easier. By the cold turkey day at the end of the course I was so proud to say that I had used my phone for less than 2 minutes that day. During the course there was a day that I was at a doctors office in the waiting room and I noticed after about 15 minutes of waiting, I hadn’t touched my phone once. I had just been observing my surroundings and lost in thought. It made me so happy! I use my phone to communicate, and to keep notes and use basic resources, but I don’t waste my time. My life is so much more organized, I am so much happier, I sleep better, I read more, I take better care of myself, and most of all I am present in my day-to-day life. If you're looking for a catalyst to a better, happier, more productive life, moment is the place to start.

    Very dysfunctional app. Routinely popped up with notifications that caused me to look at my phone. Gave me celebratory messages when I exceeded the goal settings - the opposite of what it's supposed to do. Routinely gave incorrect times, such as "you have spent 24 hours in your phone today" at 6am. Highly recommended that you look elsewhere

    Installed it yesterday, just woke up at 12 after ten hours of sleep to moment telling me I had 11 hours of screen time today. So its clearly not working well with my phones screen detection. Sad, I will still try to use it and figure out if I can turn the settings right somehow but so far its not great. Maybe someone from Moment could let me know what Im doing wrong or if it works on my phone even?

  • Great Idea Jan 7, 2018

    By Jojo12340
    This app is a great idea and I would love if it worked. This first week or so I used the app, it would track my usage well, but then it started to lose my trust. The amount of time I spent on my phone started to grow a ton even though I felt like I was using my phone the same amount. I checked the usage (or whatever it’s called) tab in the app and the numbers the time it said I was using it throughout the day didn’t add up. For instance I would do the math based on what it said my pickups and usage time was and it would come out to more than an hour under what the overall total was. In my mind, I was like this makes sense they’re trying to sell a product that makes you decrease your phone usage, or at least makes you feel like you are decreasing your phone usage, so it makes sense to inflate the numbers to then just show the actual numbers once people buy the premium product or whatever it’s called. Now, I didn’t wanna just leave it at that, I wanted to be thorough, so I tracked my phone usage myself and compared it to the app’s purported usage and my hypothesis was correct and the app inflated your usage. Its too bad the developers have chosen to inflate the numbers, I think this is a great idea with great potential to actually help people use their phones less and connect with people around them more, but it’s part of a business model and has to make a profit so I understand why they have made the choices they have.

    The app is insightful but it drains my battery pretty dramatically. What's the point of an app monitoring my screen time when it kills my battery less than halfway through the day? The logistics of it running all of the time is understandable but it'd be nice if it didn't drain my battery so quickly.

    The main function of this app it's to determine the time which you have spent in the telephone. But it works incorrect. Timer goes even when your phone is locked. So, this app doesn't perform the main function.

  • Best purchase I have done! Nov 19, 2018

    By Carlros6
    I know it’s a big clam but i really think it’s the best purchase I’ve done! Most of us are not even aware of our addiction, being stuck to our phones for hours. Time flies by us and we don’t even notice. We don’t even know we are alive! The technology has been working against us when it comes to this. We spend time with our loved ones in the same house and we don’t even know they are there. When they pass away, sometimes we can’t even remember much of our time together because we were paying too much attention to our phones. It’s just a sad reality and “moment” has helped me so much to keep my phone away and use it when it’s truly necessary. Apart from the new iPhone upgrade that gives you feature to track your screen time. But this app having exercises to help stay away from your phone just makes it stand out so much! If you think or know that you are addicted to your phone, then make the purchase. Do it for yourself and do it for your loved ones!

  • Excellent app for monitoring your screen time! Sep 29, 2017

    By terrilee_nc
    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!

  • Great idea, would love a few minor tweaks Jun 20, 2018

    By chelseacham
    Love the idea of the app...it’s so easy to pick up our phones out of boredom, but it’s crazy how quickly that time adds up! It helps you stay a little more mindful about whether or not to do something on your phone, or choose to do something more productive. 3 things I’ve noticed: 1. If you have turned off your phone at any point, the screenshot of the 7 day battery usage will not work. It will only show the number of consecutive days your phone has been on. Not sure if I would still get same results if I screenshot 3 days of battery usage? 2. Is there any way to exclude certain apps from the total usage? A lot of times I will listen to music on my phone while I’m at work, but I really just turn it in and have it playing, but I think the time it is playing counts for phone usage, or if I switch songs etc. I’m more interested in the time I’m actually on my phone. 3. It would be cool if the app could detect when you are driving and have a specific section for app usage while driving...or even have the capability to block you from using your phone (except maps maybe?)...or play a really annoying sound when you try to use your phone while driving? :) Hope that makes sense, thanks for making the app, I think it’s really important for us to be more conscious of our screen time!!

  • Useful - but needs a few improvements Jan 19, 2018

    By Gddhzfhcdhvfg
    Overall your app is great. And much needed. You are on the brink of something important. That wing said, your app seems invasive, has to know where I am, have access to my photos? Seems strange. Your explanations for why you need a battery screen shot and stuff aren't all that clear. You need better UX and copywriting that helps the user know you aren't being invasive etc. IMPORTANT: your app needs to know the difference between phone time spent on text and social media etc and using Google maps! I use google maps a lot to get around and find places, but just cause it's on while I'm driving doesn't mean I'm "using my phone" in the same manner that I am trying to avoid when using this app. This seems like a HUGE oversight. Fix it.

    Waited a long time for this app to come to android. There are few bugs ,but atleast for a start, the developers are trying hard. Few issues which I encountered were: 1. I was doing session to improve sleep. The app asked me to get off my phone at 11.30pm and sleep for 21 hours. ?? 2. At night, even when I am sleeping, the screen time goes up, but if I'm watching a movie, it doesn't go up. I think it's because I've turned on the popup notification. Also when a video/app is running and you're not touching the screen, it's not counted(so the movies). But good work for a start, and looking forward to your updates..

    I have had a technology addiction since I first watched cartoons. I would watch them instead of doing homework. This soon became going on Facebook for hours. When I use this app I consistently use it for the max time I have it set for and need to set it for force me off when I am on (you need the paid version for this). It makes a dreadful noise over and over, but it stops if I really need to make a phone call. I can tolerate it well enough to shut it off if I really have to, but it’s annoying enough I don’t want to bother with it most days, especially knowing myself as I do. It’s like being an alcoholic and hearing an alarm go off whenever you try to drink, it makes you think twice before doing it; even if you can shut it off do you really want to?

    Installed this app on the advice of a friend who was really surprised when its features revealed how much screen time she was spending every day. Figured I could also benefit from something like that, so I installed it 3 months ago. Definitely made me realize I need to cut down on browsing aimlessly, but there are problems. For one, it’s not been very accurate in counting the minutes at least half a dozen times. (Sometimes it strangely fails to record time spent online). Got the updated version a few days ago, and it was really intrusive. The alerts that pop up by default were needlessly frequent & filled with language that made me feel like a 5 year old. I changed their frequency in the settings after a day of this moralizing tone. Interface text sounds pretty much the same—annoying as heck, especially when it constantly asks to be enabled to access Settings to connect to certain apps to collect more specific information about where you need to reduce screen time.

  • It turned into one of THOSE apps Nov 19, 2018

    By Hamsters4life
    In the beginning, the app was really nice and I felt like it was helping me reduce my screen time as promised. It said that I could just pay $3.00 for premium and also support them so I did. HOWEVER, the app got a new update, and it got more courses which I was excited about, but they decided that they wanted people to pay subscriptions for their app now. One the major reasons I liked this app was because it was so simple and wasn’t constantly telling to pay. But now, it turned into one of those apps that wants you to pay for a subscription even though wanting to reduce your screen time and make your life better as a whole, should not require you to pay every month/year. I’m fine with a one time payment to support Moment, but if you needed more money couldn’t you just make the one time payment a little more? I really like Moments goal, but this just makes me mad, I know you have to make money, but this is annoying. Thanks for reading.

    Good idea, would be a great app if it wasn't buggy. The worst problem for me is that the feature that "tracks your activity during certain hours only" keeps setting itself to timeframes wayyy different from the one I manually set. I have no idea why, but that renders it useless for me, as I'm only looking to track my time during certain hours.

    The app is visually appealing and not too invasive as far as usability of your phone goes. They've clearly spent a lot of time on their programs and activities. The goal of the app is admirable (which is why I tried it in the first place). However, the analytics they present to the user are either dead wrong, or just presented without proper explanation. Either way, the numbers are useless. Ex: How can a user be spending 24% of their life on the phone with only 23 minutes a day of screen time?

  • Somewhat disappointing Feb 23, 2018

    By steadierfooting
    I paid for the premium version so that I could exclude specific apps from my total usage. On any given day, I might need to use Waze or Google Maps for up to 3 hours during an inter-office commute, two different fitness apps during a 60+ minute workout, the Podcast app during my commute and a meditation app. What I wanted to track and cut down on was mindless FB/Twitter scrolling. Unfortunately the app’s limitations render it not terribly helpful. The app can’t tell what app you’re using in real time so it sounds its alarm as soon as you hit your max time and continues to do so until the end of the day which is super annoying during a commute or workout or worse during meditation. In order to get accurate stats on usage you have to take a screenshot of battery usage every morning. Then the app will exclude specified apps from the total usage. Mildly helpful but also data I can gather on my own just from looking at the battery usage. I tried closing the app so it would stop tracking (and thus stop sending a notification) during a workout but the alarm still went off. If you’re not someone who needs to use their phone for specific tasks throughout the day, this app will likely be helpful. Otherwise, it may end up another aggravation in your day.

  • Flawed in an unfixable way Mar 6, 2018

    By Bertonski
    I really want to use this app to decrease my time playing games or surfing the web. The problem is the app tracks ALL screen time and I use my phone a lot during the day for business (QuickBooks and email etc), I use fitness tracking apps for running, listen to self-help books in the car with Audible, and in the evening I will watch Netflix on my phone instead of traditional TV. I set the app to give me reminders for when I’ve been on too long because I want the reminders to tell me when I’m wasting time playing a game or surfing the web, but I don’t want the reminders when I’m working with clients, engaging in healthy activities, or watching a show! Very annoying and the only thing I can do is change my notifications before each app I use, which is time-consuming and unrealistic. It’s my understanding from the developer there’s no way to distinguish screen time by app when the phone is being actively used (apps can be removed from reporting) so I removed it from my phone because it just can’t do what I need it to do. I need it to only be “on” for certain apps and right now that seems impossible. Also separately I appreciate how candid the developer is about privacy but I don’t like how invasive this app is with tracking. If it did everything that worked for me I’d be more likely to trade-off with trust but not for what it is right now.

    There should be a way for this app to differentiate between 'screen time' and work. During these difficult times due to coronavirus u need your phone for work. This is inevitable. However, the app marks it as screen time. Also, in the 'attention span' course it tells u to listen to a song for the first day. However, picking a song counts as screen time! I played the song anyway, but the app doesn't realise this. I tried to send feedback, and it says that they cannot reply to my complaint!!! 👎👎

    This app is faulty. I got it because Goggins recommended it and I wanted to decrease time on my phone. It literally would not stop notifying me when I was on it. It would do it every 3 seconds instead of simply just when I picked it up. It was like having an alarm clock I could not turn off. Some people need to do work and school from their phones. We can't have this app being counterintuitive buzzing in our ear every 8 seconds like Llyod Christmas and the most annoying sound in the world

    Used to work fine on my iphone (even had the paid version) but on my android phone it just drains my battery without properly tracking my screen time. Thought my battery was broken because in the last few weeks my phone would only last half a day. Then I looked deeper into the battery usage of my phone and it said that this app used by far the most battery with 50% and I wasn't even using it anymore because it didn't track anyway. So I uninstalled it and suddenly my phone lasts 12 hours again.
