Ratings and Reviews
Less Than Expected.
As I looked through all of the apps created to limit screen time, I thought this would be my best option.
The app warns upfront that having your Location on will drain battery fairly quickly.
The app fails to mention, however, that in order for the app to work, your Location must be on.
I figured I wouldn’t have to have my Location on and that I would just not receive whatever benefits that having my Location on would offer me, but that was not the case.
The app won’t track anything if you don’t have your Location on, and it will also not track anything if the app is not open.
When I turn my Location on and have the app open, like I am supposed to, a blue banner remains at the top of the screen, saying “Unplug is Actively Using Your Location”. 24/7. It does not go away unless you are completely out of the app, which is slightly annoying.
Also, as far as I can tell, the app does not count the Unlocks correctly. I’ve locked and unlocked my phone several times now and it still says that I have had 0 Unlocks.
The count of how long I’ve been on my phone isn’t accurate either. I’ve been sitting in the same place since I got the app with my Location on and app open for 31 minutes, but it says I’ve only used my phone for 6 minutes in this location, which is where I’ve been the entire time.
Overall, not the best app. Improvements need to be made for sure, like allowing the app to function without having the battery draining Location option on.
Unless you’re okay with a constant blue banner at the top of your screen and a drained battery this app isn’t the best choice. If these fixes are seen and made, the app would be much better.
