New app will try to help you get over your iPhone addiction
Moment is the name of the app that tracks where you go on your iPhone every day, and even shows this to you by sending you a map.The app also keeps tabs on the length of time you spend on your iPhone daily. You can set the app to produce an annoying buzzer when you go over a pre-set daily usage limit. The creator of Moment, Kevin Holesh, was using his phone 75 minutes a day. Now, he has his app set to go off after 40 minutes of usage, and actually enjoys those extra 35 minutes daily that he has opened up by weaning himself from the iPhone.
Once you open Moment, it runs in the background and doesn't close. And while you might think that you don't need the app, Holesh found that most people are in denial, underestimating the daily time spent on their phone by 50%. The app is free and offers five relaxing and five harsh sounds as a reminder that you have hit your usage limit for the day.
