Recommended Strongly recommended for all those who care for their time...
Wish the app did more All the real functionality exists on the RescueTime webpage, not in the app. Unfortunate, but it's exactly what is advertised. The mobile browser interface is friendly enough, but it could be a hundred times better if it was a native, in-app experience. As it is, the app feels like a empty shell, and the webpage feels outdated. Still gets the job done though.
WAIT! BEFORE YOU PLACE A NEGATIVE REVIEW You must fix settings in order to monitor the whole device. People are complaining due to their lack of research. It took me about 5 Min to find out you need to go in the settings and allow it to monitor your entire activity on your device. I use it since it makes me aware of where my time is being distributed and then make changes. If you don't know where you are first, you'll never be able to get to your destination.
Usually love this app I really appreciate that I can monitor phone and computer productivity with this app, but lately it's not working properly on my Samsung galaxy s4. One day it reported way less phone use and it's not reliably picking up computer use. I'll adjust the rating when it's working correctly again. Thanks.
I love RescueTime RescurTime allows me to track my productivity. It has played a major role in helping me remove unnecessary and unproductive things from my day to day life.
logs everything, including my lockscreen app Sometimes I don't touch my phone for days but it will still automatically track any app that turn on the screen for notifications. You can tell the app to ignore and stop tracking certain apps and processes temporarily or permanently, but it's still a bit annoying that the app is not "smart" enough to automatically ignore things like the launcher or the animated wallpaper. After the initial setup, it works well.
