Nowadays most of us don’t know how to live without a Smartphone making it a fundamental object in our lives is to either increase our productivity, we are connected with the world or simply for entertainment. But don’t we depend on it and use it too much? The application QualityTime gives us a hand in this field, keeping us abreast of how long and how often we use our Android device. The application QualityTime monitors all using your android memorizing how many times unblocked your smartphone, how long it spends in each application and how often clicks on the same app during the day. You would be surprised with the amount of hours you spend looking at your smartphone!
All the activity of this application is done invisibly, without disturbing the smartphone usage noticeably, both in terms of battery and performance. All monitoring is presented in a simple way in daily and weekly charts with time and frequency of use of each application.
When you open the application is presented with a timeline, with the use of the device on that day. In this line are the total time of use of the smartphone, the time devoted to each application and at what hours of the day. If we slide to the screen from the top we have a summary of daily use, we can walk to the left in the chart, presented at the bottom of the screen to view the previous days. In the upper area of the screen are presented using data, being able to observe how much time we spend in each application and with a slide to right the frequency with which we use the same application. If we slide one more time up we have the current and previous weekly summary organized similarly to the duration and frequency of use.
This application has more to show! It gives us the possibility to make a break, blocking the smartphone for a certain period of time or setting a maximum level of use of a certain application or game, notifying us when overshoot that limit of use.
Imagine that you’re too late with a project and need to concentrate to finish within the time limit. You can take a break from your device, leaving this to the distracted by notifications or with the simple urge to see what’s new on facebook! Imagine that you want to still do a “digital diet” on the amount of hours you spend watching videos on youtube, you can establish a limit!
In addition to the aforementioned features, for example we can also organize our homescreen or shortcuts for the various screens of the smartphone with the help of this application. Having now information from which the most used applications, we can create shortcuts to these applications which allow us faster access to them. With the information available we can still get a sense of the time of use of the Internet, giving us the possibility to activate/deactivate automatically the Wi-Fi to save battery.
I advise you to try the QualityTime, even out of curiosity. The application plays very well its role and presents the results in a simple and innovative making its use very pleasant. Use and abuse of functionality “Take a break” to disconnect from the world.
