We (“we” as in society) all know that we’re addicted to our smartphones. All you have to do is take a look at any pedestrian-heavy intersection in any moderately-sized city to find that out. But what are we all actually doing with our phones all the time? That surprisingly elusive information is what’s offered up by the Instant app for iPhone and Android.
Instant gives you a comprehensive breakdown of which apps you used throughout the day and how long you used them. If you’re into even more auto-espionage it also tracks your movements through geolocation, showing where you’ve gone and how long you stayed there.
You can find Instant for Android at the Google Play store right here, and the app’s Apple version right here. Then, you’re well on your way to achieving what the developers of the app at Emberify refer to as a “Quantified Self,” at least as far as your smartphone is concerned.
