About this app

UsageSafe is an app that aims to help you to track how much time you spend (or waste) on your phone. Have you ever thought about bringing more awareness or consciousness into your life? Sometimes we lose track of time using social media apps and UsageSafe will help you with a realization about your usage and potential addiction, which is a big step forward.

Have you ever wondered how many times you unlock your phone throughout the day? How much time do you spend on specific apps? How many times do you launch specific apps? What is the average screen time per day, per hour? This app has answers to those
and many other questions you may have.

This app is not only about the raw data. Even though we might be aware of the excessive amount of time in front of our smartphones, sometimes we need a bit of control. UsageSafe got you covered. With the app blocker functionality, you can specify limits for each app independently, so that when you exceed that limit, you won't be able to open it for the rest of the day. But don't even think about cheating. It might seem easy at first to just quickly adjust the limit after overusing specific app and mindlessly continue
with your session, but there is one obstacle. Whenever you want to delete or update a limit, you have to wait 15 seconds, which doesn't seem like a lot but it can successfully discourage you from doing that.

Besides standard app limits, there is a special Focus Mode. It allows you to block specific apps that you find the most distracting or you spend the most time within. You simply select those distracting apps, turn on the mode, and all of those apps won't be available for you unless you turn it off again.

UsageSafe gives you the functionality of a Digital Wellbeing app and much more, but to a wider variety of phones. Some data enthusiasts will appreciate the ability to export your usage data to a CSV file for further manipulation and querying.

Your usage data is private and it will always be. It doesn't leave your phone nor it is used in any other way. Upon installing, you will already have a week of historical usage data at your disposal!

Along the top of your phone it will keep an accurate time log, but it doesn't update in the app very often. So you'll open the app to see what you've been using and it will show incorrect times most of the time. I have no idea why sometimes it updates and other times it does. Short version the app does not update everytime you open the app like it is supposed to.

Hi Paul, I am not sure what do you mean exactly. The app updates its statistics every time you open the app

Really like the design of the app! Haven't tested focus mode yet but the tracking seems to be accurate! I'd really like to see one (or more) widgets which show the usage time, the unlock count and the limits I've set for each app! I especially like the 15 seconds you have to wait until you are allowed to delete a limit! Keep up the good work! And well, my launcher (Huawei Home) is unfortunately still included in the tracking even though it's turned off in the options!

Hi, I will definitely think about implementing the widget functionality. Thank you for taking out the time to send me your suggestions!

Prettiest and easiest to use tracker. It doesn't force a bias of what is & isn't good for you, which is nice. Leaving a couple stars off for the time being because there's some things that any screentime app ought to have that this doesn't yet What this app desperately needs: - App launch/open limits. Only has time limits so far. - A whitelist option: there's apps and system processes that shouldn't be counted and this does not give an option to ignore them, that messes up your stats!

Hi, thank you for that review and also the email you sent with all of your suggestions about the app and the features it lacks at the moment. I will try to implement them (especially whitelisting and app launch limits) as soon as possible.
