* Invisible productivity and time tracking for your digital life

RescueTime for iOS helps you understand and manage your time spent on digital devices. Paired with the free RescueTime desktop app, you get a full picture of your digital time, wherever you are. Discover what desktop applications you use the most and how much time you spend on specific websites. Your time is automatically categorized by productivity level, so you can see how your device usage affects your attention, work patterns, and goals. RescueTime supports macOS, Windows, and Linux desktops, and the iOS app can be linked with all of them.

Note: at this time, iOS has no screen time wellness features available to app developers. RescueTime cannot measure your iOS screen time yet.

Doesn't work

Didn't track any time on my phone AND caused my phone to start running really hot. My battery was draining really quickly with this running on my phone as well. Not worth it just to be able to get notifications on mobile.

Don’t give up.

I can’t get the mobile to work either. But I’ve been a fan of this company and their desktop version for a while. Give them an update or two to work out the bugs.

Big problem

After using this app, the new iOS feature screentime stopped working. I was losing all my tracked Time on the iPhone in few hours. If you encounter a similar problem please report it for it to be fixed.
Also the app is so limited but that's because of what iPhone allows to be tracked. Devs can't really do anything about that, at least for the current iOS.
