Moment enables you to use your phone in a healthy way, giving you back time for the parts of life that matter most.

By understanding your device usage, you can learn to manage the time you spend on it. See how much time you’re spending on your phone and which apps you’re using most.

Rethink the way you use your phone, one day at a time, through guided coaching sessions at your own pace. Moment will help subtly change your usage habits to help you get your time back.

Disconnect together by monitoring your family’s device usage and establishing screen-free times. You can work together with your family to ensure accountability and reduce screen time as a team.

Take back control over your phone usage and find new time each day with Moment.

Moment Features:

Device Addiction Coaching
• Train with the Coach to use your phone less, if that’s your goal.
• Learn how to modify your behavior in small ways to reduce your phone usage.
• Moment runs in the background to help manage your usage without needing to open it.

Time Management & Measurement
• Track how much you use your phone or tablet automatically.
• Keep track of what apps you use the most (iPhone only).
• Log how many times you pick up your phone each day.
• Break down each day to see when you’re on your device and what apps you’re using.
• Track where you go each day and have it plotted on a map.

Friends and Family Support
• Establish phone-free times for your family so you can disconnect together.
• Improve your focus and connections by decreasing your screen time.
• Let your friends and family know you’re putting down your phone for a while to reduce distractions and improve accountability.

Apple Watch
• Quickly see how long you and your family have used your phone today.
• No, the app doesn’t track how long you spend looking at your watch.

Smartphones are great tools for productivity, entertainment and connectivity, but like all things, are best used in moderation. Learn to manage device addiction with simple coaching and management techniques from Moment.

Warning to parents: Moment is not strictly about parental control. Using Moment Family as a parent gives you certain powers, but your children have power too.
• If your daughter notices you on your phone while you’re supposed to be watching a family movie together, she can start family dinner time for the entire family until the movie is over. That means no one can pick up their phone, and you as the parent can’t turn that family dinner time off.
• Your entire family can see everyone else’s screen time for the day from the family scoreboard.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Moment has been designed to use GPS sparingly.

This why can’t use my phone for more then an hour  nickname0315  1 star



Useful, but too preachy  MiralMS  3 star

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 the coach I need to live the life I want  User129078  5 star

The prompts to follow through on my screen time goals are great! I’m spending less time staring at a mini screen and more time in the real world.


Skittish and inaccurate  MsLB1111  2 star

Besides the fact that this app crashes at least 3 times a day, where is it getting its data? For example, today it says I have been on my phone for 1 hr and 58min. It also says I’ve been on it for 53% of my waking hours. I’ve been up for 11 hours so far. What kind of crazy common core math is that?? I give it another week to improve then it’s buh-bye!

Awesome 😎


Doesn’t work  Doreencpa  1 star

I would love it if it worked. My screen time and the amount of time I pick up the phone is so low that I know in a day I didn’t pick up my phone 8 times lol. Wish it worked!!!


I want to love the app BUT...  MassCommie  2 star

When setting screen free time, I’ll set it for small increments of time (10-20min) and then press the power button on the phone to put it to sleep. The app is supposed to make the phone ring when you pick it up too early and use it. However, the app rings CONSTANTLY while you’re not using it and aren’t on the screen!! It rings when you don’t use it, rings when you do use it; the only option is to not use the scheduling tool at all and have some actual peace. I do like everything else about the app but it just won’t stop ringing when the feature that should be its defining thing is beyond awful. If this gets fixed so that the app doesn’t ring when the phone is in use, then I’ll change my review because I like everything else about it so far.


Great for tracking  Jl346829  5 star

Love this app! It’s great for tracking screen time!


The best data tool to get back to real life!  dsbattista  5 star

Insights tab is revolutionary! Phone boot camp is free & a MUST. What are you waiting for? Install.


Review  oslo1820  2 star

Nice set up an everything but when I dyed my phone for at lest a half hour I checked the timer and is still said clearly 0m I kept checking but bothering changed.


Used to be great  Allophant  2 star

The removal of the screen tracking means this is no longer a useful app. Hope future updates bring it back.


Use to love it, but ...  Grace____A  3 star

I used to love the old version of moment with the circular tracker on the front screen, but I find it harder now to see where I sit in relation to my daily goals. A number on a screen doesn’t cause the same reaction that the bar turning yellow as I got closer to my limit did! I also miss the customizable notifications! I had mine every 15 mins and it was so effective at keeping me on track of my screen time. Since the update I have stopped using moment as much and my screen time has increased a lot, which is such a shame. That being said I do like some new aspects of the app including improved navigation, and the blue colour scheme is much more aesthetically pleasing than the pale green. BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back customizable notifications!! Thank you


No Longer Tracking Phone Usage  yvhuefbiydgj  1 star

Since the new update the app has unfortunately the app no longer tracks my phone usage. Loved the app before the update.

Dissapointing updated version  Phuong N.  2 star

I paid for the Premium version of Moment and all was well until the new version was released. I no longer receive any notification of the time I spend on my phone. Even when the actual time I spend on my phone exceeds my limit, I have no notification or whatsoever. With no notification, the app is now pretty useless to me. It doesn’t really help me much in reducing my time on my phone, which goes against my intention of using this app. I’m disappointed by the new version. Please give me back the old Moment.

Used to be better  LK171  1 star

I’ve just updated the app to 4.0 after a frustrating few weeks of it spontaneously tracking use that simply hasn’t occurred. I have been using every trick I can find to prevent this including putting the phone on low battery mode to limit other apps’ background activity, and keeping the phone face down when not using it (or upside down in a bag/pocket). It’s still tracking random activity that isn’t happening. The new interface is problematic. It now takes more interaction to see if one is using the phone less, so I think we’re going backwards. The previous ‘traffic light’ colour scheme provided an at-a-glance update for how the day’s use was going. The new blue colour scheme doesn’t help this. An app like this should operate on a less is more basis, but this version has ended up with more is less.

App usage times not available  Brooke door  2 star

Crashed when I tried to open app usage section. What’s more is I don’t like how I’m asked to answer a survey first, feels disingenuous. Still can’t access app usage times, despite tracking, because of this crashing. Please fix this, I preferred the older layout before the update.


Amazing new update  Badum1123141  5 star

I haven’t been up to date with the updates, but recently everything seems so much smoother, easier to use, more informative and most of all, makes me more productive. One of the best concept for an app on the store right now. 10/10


Sensational  Gerald041969  5 star

Love this app

I cant witk out how to use it but hoping i will after this screen has gone


Not as good as hoped  bk18472  1 star

They just try to sell you more after you purchase the app


4.0 Update  kimmytra101  1 star

The 4.0 update is not an improvement. I found it quite helpful to see all my days and hours in one column that I could compare. Now I have to click on each calendar day to see my time on my phone. Also I can’t find where I create my goal for the day. Please switch it back to the old home screen.


Horrible  Ugogirl311  1 star

Not early to follow. Required location on all the time. Drains battery. Does not do half of the things advertise.

Used to be great. Hate the redesign  Doctorpsych  1 star

Instead of just tracking my data so I can get immediate feedback on good or bad days in terms of usage, it’s trying to hold my hand and push their paid (expensive and monthly) solutions. A shame this effective app went for the big money-grab rather than just doing its job well.


Good app  Beckaroo11679  4 star

Good app, gets me in trouble with my boyfriend.

160-160 ties :(

New update is atrocious  160-160 ties :(  1 star

I’ve never written and app review before, and this one would have gotten 5 stars, but the new update is horrible. **DO NOT GET THIS APP UNTIL IT IS FIXED** Not only is it cumbersome for me to quickly view my screen time numbers (need to click each day independently on a calendar instead of having them all in a list like before), but now I can’t even see my older data! What’s up with that!! It’s December 5th and I can’t even see my stuff from last week! Ridiculous! And the “export data” feature is a joke- not even close to the complete picture i wanted. really frustrating. Please give us back the old interface! And no, don’t tell me to click on “long term insights”- when I do that, it tells me I “don’t have enough data” and shows me nothing. I’ve had this app for almost a month and just want to see what my data looked like 6 days ago. It’s ridiculous that I can’t.


Better before redesign  Aprn7549  4 star

I like this app because it does force me to be aware of my screen time, however liked it much better before the recent redesign. The home screen used to make it so easy so get a quick visual of my day-to-day usage, now you have to scroll and look at each day individually to see your usage times. And to be honest I’m not really that interested in how many pickups I have, just want to decrease time spent overall.


New interface is unattractive and less useful  ae2021  3 star

I liked moment a lot for it’s simplicity, but the new update makes the home screen much less easy to read and compare screen time to previous dates. I don’t want bars and charts and graphs—I just want to see bars showing if I’m in the green zone and a comparison to previous days. Much simpler, easy to glance at, doesn’t require me to spend more time on my phone looking at graphs... please post on how to revert to old version!


Awesome  A REALLY ANGRY MAN  5 star

This is making my screen time go way down. I LOVE IT!!!!!!💯💯💯


Terrible  danceraine  5 star

Do not download it keeps switching of if you want to put it on again you have to open the app again Waist of time downloading it


Super annoying  Riverph  1 star

Going to remove as super annoying. Every time you pick up the phone to answer it a pop up appears and you end up gong into that rather than your call or message.

Keeps crashing  que srah srah  1 star

Ever since I decided to opt in and pay for the premium version of this app, and updated to the newer version, it has not stopped force quitting on me. It’s really not worth updating, so don’t bother. (Apparently I’ve been on my phone for 15 minutes today. I know that’s a lie as it’s almost 7pm 😂).


Great app  davidkevinmichael  5 star

It’s really useful and has surprised me how helpful it is. It’s a case of what gets measured gets managed. Thanks very helpful


Moment  Niall KAVANAGH  5 star

Tracking the time wasted on phones . Surprising!


Very good  Ferdob  4 star

Thanks for creating this


Good app  JohnnyMas  5 star

It helps you to keep real tracking of how much you use your phone.


It's easy to use  clmedi  4 star

The app does a good job of calculating phone use and it would be great if there was a Mac app


Scary Insights  Lanzaspud  5 star

I downloaded Moment out of curiosity, but finding out how long I actually spend on my iPhone was scary. I use it now to keep my use within what I consider OK levels, and it helps do that well. The premium version is well worth the few €/$
