Track Your Time Wasting Apps with Frequency
Posted March 11, 2014 at 02:30 pm by Will Verduzco
Sometimes, we all like to sit back and enjoy a bit of diversion with our favorite mobile apps. Be it chatting with friends on Facebook, binge watching every episode of House of Cards on Netflix, or sitting down for a few hours with Flappy Birds, we all find ourselves wasting a bit more time than we’d like from time to time. Wouldn’t it be great if you could track your time spent in individual apps to better optimize your day? Now you can.
Frequency by XDA Forum Member AggieDev is a simple application that shows you a list of your installed applications and how long you’ve spent in each. The list is presented in descending order, in order to best highlight the apps that consume the greatest amount of your time.
Frequency offers a good amount of customization to better fit your needs. It allows you to display which apps you’ve used most in the current day, past week, past month, past three months, past year, and all time. Additionally, it allows you to hide certain applications that you want excluded from consideration such as, let’s say, your launcher. The application also allows you to configure its accuracy. And since increasing accuracy also consumes more battery, so lower accuracy may be a better choice for some.
If you’ve ever wondered about your time-sucks, head over to the application thread and objectively track them down!
