Moment: how long are you looking at your smartphone

Moment is an app designed by Kevin Holesh which records the time you are interacting with your smartphone. The most interesting thing about this app is that, if you make an estimate of the time that you think you are hooked on your mobile, it is usual that you fall at least 50%.

The app not only tells you the total time spent in a day, but the times you look at it or take it for some reason.

Too many hours

The app is a bit old and may not have much interest for many users. However, it is interesting in another aspect: for the data that has been hosting about the social use of the smartphone.

Moment statistics are interesting, because they allow them to be established according to the data of millions of users. According to them, most people spend between one and four hours on their phone daily, and there are many who spend more time. The highest range, with 25% of users, are those who use their phone for 2 to 3 hours a day.

But 3% already use the phone between 6 and 7 hours. And 1%, more than 7 hours. On average, users also pick up the phone about three times per hour.

Of course, the Moments mobile application is not a global panacea for all who afflict us about our digital habits and obsessions. But for those who wake up to hug their phone before their loved ones, Moments can be a step in the right direction. For Holesh, the effect has been pronounced. He used to spend 75 minutes per day on his iPhone. Now, spend only 40.
