Have you ever missed-out on cherishing a moment in your life because you were trying to capture a moment to cherish for the rest of your life?
Or how about engaging in social media on your smartphone while at the playground with your kids, instead of engaging with your kids on the playground?
I don’t mean to cast any kind of guilt or shame—I am as guilty as anyone else—but the first step in fixing a problem is admitting you have one, and that’s exactly what this mobile app does:
Moment is an app designed to help you “put down your phone and get back to your life.” It’s a simple app, with some cool features thrown in to make it worth the $5. It automatically tracks how much you:
- Use your phone,
- Pick it up,
- And, where you go.
It functions in the background, but you can set yourself limits with warning sounds to let you know when you’ve gone over. You can even setup occasional nudges throughout the day. Moment is always watching you—in a good way. It’s the perfect app for self-accountability and ‘cutting the cord’ without having to go ‘cold turkey.’
If you’re serious about cutting back your smartphone usage, the $5 purchase is well worth it. If you are an Android user, be sure to sign-up to be notified when it’s released for Android. Learn more and find the most recent iTunes (and future Google Play) links on the Moment website.
