Screen Time for iOS

I’m not sure if Apple has announced an API for the newly announced ScreenTime features, but it’d be nice to see how using my iPhone/iPad correlates with other metrics.

Not possible due to no API.

    Me too, really hoping Screen Time will offer a way into tracking mobile productivity for iOS in the way RescueTime has failed to for years.

    RescueTime isn’t able to do much on iOS just because Apple doesn’t make that data available, it’s out of their hands. I’d honestly be extremely surprised if a Screen Time API was made available, because it’s not their MO.

    It’s too bad Apple set this feature up but left it so half-baked. Is there any chance you guys might consider allowing manual entry for phone screen time?

    Alternatively, would something like the app Moment (iOS) does work—using a screenshot of battery use by app to estimate screen time?

    We probably won’t be looking into replicating what Moment does, as there’s a significant amount of work there for what would be a fairly small part of Exist overall. But you might like to vote for this suggestion for manual tracking, which would allow manual entry for phone screen time.
