Unlocks and phone usage

I’ve seen that you can’t connect to apps like Instant. Why don’t you integrate a phone unlocks / usage directly in your app.

We’re spending most of our times using our smartphone, this is a major aspect that has to be track.

    It would be nice to tag apps so that they can be used for correlation.

    Maybe you could integrate with Google’s Digital Wellbeing tools?

    I’m pretty sure Google don’t make this data available unfortunately.

    There are many apps out there that will give you these numbers. I don’t know if they track screen on or something else. This is an old answer, but it may still be correct:

    Apple makes this hard to do, though, IIRC.

    @willem: Services like rescue time will get you what you want. I don’t use them any more but they do give you a breakdown of how many times you opened which apps and how long you spent in the app and more.

    But if they also don’t have APIs, as is the case for the vast majority, that doesn’t help us get that data either.

    The exist native app could do this

    You can track phone usage using RescueTime, but that doesn’t sync with Exist.io

    RescueTime mobile app already have this data, it would be great if you add few rows to current productivity list.

    “You unlock your phone more on days tagged with ‘bored’” I think this could provide some cool insights.
