“Addicted to your smartphone? There’s an APP for that!” – Daily Mail (UK)
( OFFTIME ) has three components that support your digital balance and digital detox:
1. tracking and comparing your device usage
2. setting personal device usage goals and accessing tips & articles
3. pursuing alone or inviting others to OFFTIMEs (on iOS the flight/mute mode for now)
** Please note **
For monitoring your smartphone usage in real time and displaying your hotspots of usage ( OFFTIME ) needs to continuously use GPS/location data. Even though ( OFFTIME )'s GPS usage is optimized, continued use of GPS running in the background will decrease battery life.
( OFFTIME ) provides a daily overview and its alert functions give you instant feedback on your usage behavior. You can set and track personal goals and limit your device usage to ensure your personal work-life-tech balance and your healthy digital detox daily. Learn how much time you spend with your digital devices and get support to disconnect.
The app lets you understand your digital habits through insightful graphs and appealing visualizations of your smartphone usage, clustered by daily, weekly, monthly and total usage reports. Using “locations” you can find your usage hotspots. With the badge icon you can see conveniently your daily unlocks or collect your time offs.
The OFFTIME time-out feature supports you with taking breaks from your phone. You can take those OFFTIMEs individually - or invite friends, families or colleges to a share OFFTIME.
Once you opt-in to our new server comparison feature, you can easily see how your usage compares to that of other users each day.
Take back control and focus on what matters to you. Give your device some peace and reconnect with your loved ones.
Curious or concerned about the drivers of distraction and digital device addiction? ( OFFTIME ) also comes with “hints” - a growing series of English articles that offer useful information and practical advice for dealing with the pitfalls of hyperconnectivity.

Didn't even work
I got this app to block certain apps in the morning so that I'm not tempted to use my phone, but it didn't even work. I tested it out on fb & it opened fb right away. Even if it did work, I wish I had realized before I bought it that it was also supposed to block calls & messages because I don't want those blocked. I am a mother, I need to be able to be reached 24/7. And finally, I wanted to be able to set a reoccurring "time off", but the scheduler only works one day at a time. Totally useless app. Wish I hadn't wasted my money on it.
Should've read the reviews before downloading
This app really doesn't need to use location info in the way that it does. It's also super inaccurate, sending notifications in offtime when I'm not even using my phone! It also doesn't seem to have all the features it advertises. I was looking forward to an app that would let me turn off Facebook and twitter and still allow me to look at emails or receive phone calls. Doesn't look to be the case.
Should not require location tracking!
This app requires continuous location tracking. It is not possible to disable location tracking and still get usage statistics. If I don't care where I use my phone, I should be able to turn off location tracking but still get info on usage minutes! Until this problem is resolved I'm deleting this app and would advise anyone concerned about privacy to not buy it.
