Last year, BOA (Bank of America) conducted a study that revealed nearly 50% of all U.S adults wouldn’t spend a day without touching their smartphones. Indeed, most of us won’t last the hour without a quick glimpse on our smartphone’s screen, even when we’re busy at the workplace or elsewhere. Now a new android app is available that tracks just how much time you spend on your smartphone. Going by the name QualityTime, this android app will tell you what proportion of your day goes to your smartphone. More so, you get a break down that highlights the daily frequency of each application you constantly use in a timeline format. This is essentially the first app to do this. More so, QualityTime even makes charts that highlight your weekly apps usage and as well tells you how many times you unlocked your smartphone. These usage analytics are a great tool for anyone to gauge their productivity when there’s a smartphone around. You get to determine how much time you spent on individual applications, and can as well learn which apps you’re using too much. A ‘take a break’ actionable feature is available that allows you to limit your usage. Additionally, you can instruct QualityTime to lock your screen for specified time periods. Users who create a QualityTime account will be able to view detailed usage history for a period of time extending to 6 months. This information will be stored in the cloud, which means you can access it anytime to see whether you’re making progress on retrogressive usage patterns. The application apparently is a good bet for people looking to reduce smartphone usage. QualityTime was engineered by ZeroDesktop, the company that also build another handy app going by the name Dinnertime, which helps parents control the amount of time kids use their devices.
