Smartphones are an essential part of our daily lives. But the constant flow of interruptions and information can leave us feeling distracted, disconnected, overwhelmed and removed from the people we love rather than lost in the moment.

Supported by research from leading universities, our personalised digital behaviour change program will help you take back control of your phone, to find more space in your life, to find the moment. SPACE helps you to set goals for your phone use, it monitors your behaviour and tracks progress, plus you can share your results with friends and family.

With a simple layout and attractive design, our app guides you on how to manage your phone overuse by offering:

-A personalised program based on your own phone habits and personality
-The opportunity to set and refine your goals for time on your phone and number of unlocks
-Tracking to study your phone usage patterns, with a quick way to track your progress over the course of 60 days
-Tools like screen dimming to help you disconnect from your phone
-Non-intrusive notifications to interrupt your unhealthy phone behaviour and keep you on track
-Achievements for meeting your goals which will build a beautiful galaxy over time
-You can compare your results against friends, family and other SPACE users by upgrading to SPACE Pro for a one time payment of $2.99

If you think you’re spending an unhealthy amount of time on your smartphone and getting distracted or feeling addicted, SPACE will help you take control of your phone life balance and connect you with the real world.

Note: SPACE requires Location Services to be ON to track your time effectively. The use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life; however significant improvements have been made from the former Breakfree product.

You can purchase SPACE for one time payment of $2.99 USD

Editors’ Notes

Take control of your time—master your phone/life balance.


Great app, but small glitch

This app is very useful; it tells you how long you’ve been on your phone and how many times you’ve unlocked it that day. You have a little galaxy/solar system thing that gets smaller the more you use your phone. The challenge is to keep your space bubble as big as you can. There are set limits for the number of minutes and unlocks for your phone that is either default or changed by you. Fortunately, you aren’t forced to turn off your phone or quit apps when you go over your limit, it’s just kind of like an “oh no! do better tomorrow!” type of thing. It’s very useful because I tend to lose track of time when i’m on my phone, so seeing how much I really spend on it helps me not waste as much time. It does periodically send you notifications when you’ve been on your phone for awhile which are helpful as well. The only problem I have with the app is something that I think is a glitch with the pause feature. The app lets you pause it so it won’t track your usage if you’re using your phone for work or something else productive. But I’ve noticed that if I keep the app paused for any amount of time longer than 10 minutes or so, the numbers completely reset so i’m back to 0 minutes and 0 unlocks at the end of the day. Which isn’t an accurate representation of my usage. If this is a glitch, I hope it gets resolved soon. Besides that, this is a recommendation from me!


Very decent app, but it has a few problems.

I’ve found the app helpful for helping me keep myself from being too distracted by my phone. It may not do anything to keep particular apps from distracting me, but it still tracks my progress and lets me know how much I’ve used my phone over the course of the week and over the course of however long I’ve used the app. When I first set it up, I answered a few questions about how often I use my phone and the app automatically provided a set of default options for the app, which I have the option to change later on if I decide to. I’m even able to set notifications for myself to remind me to get off my phone now and then. However, as useful as the app is, I’ve had some trouble checking my live daily progress on app’s home page. More specifically, I often have to close the app and quickly reopen it due to the counter not updating right away without doing so. I’ve also noticed a flaw with the unlock counter. Sometimes, when I close the app and click on the notification stating the app is closed while on the home screen and not the lock screen, the unlock counter thinks I’m unlocking my phone when I open the app again.

Developer Response

Hey there! Thanks for your feedback and sorry we've take a while to get back to you. The counter should update in realtime now - if you have the latest version. Check it out and let us know if it's working for you!
