    Found it yesterday. It’s called Moment. It’s for iOS; I’m not certain whether it’s available for other platforms.

    It just runs in the background and it gives you a total # of minutes that you spent on your iOS screens, each day. I think you can set limits and all that, though I haven’t. It’s the only one I’ve found for adults; the rest of the screen time apps seem to be centered around parental control of kids’ screen usage.

    It’s helped me reduce my screen time because of awareness. I know the thing is running in the background, snitching to me about my own (bad) behaviors, or reduction thereof. It gives me incentive to really think before I pick up the darn iDevice (phone, tablet, whatever).

    And I’m motivated to do even better tomorrow!

    Just thought I’d share in case it helps someone else.

      Although it would probably drain the battery of phone, thank you for sharing 😉 seems like a good idea to track phone use

      Well, yeah; but I’d rather drain the phone battery, than drain my eyes. 😉

      Which left to my own devices, is what I tend to do! 😛
