Are you addicted to your iPhone?

Some of us jokingly say that we’re addicted to our iPhones but a newly released app called Moment will show you just how true that statement may be.

Even though we may only swipe to unlock for a few seconds, those seconds and minutes spent staring at your phone add up. Developer Kevin Holesh decided to create the app to track your phone usage through the day to give you an idea of just how bad your iPhone addiction is. Once you see how much you use your iPhone in a single day, Holesh is confident that you’ll join iPhone Addicts Anonymous and start setting limits for your smartphone use.

The way Moment works is simple. After installing it on your iPhone, Moment will begin tracking how much you use the device minute by minute. This can be done manually by tapping a button, but by design, Moment is meant to work invisibly, tracking your usage in the background without you having to do a thing.

Moment also allows you to set a time cap on your iPhone usage. As you tick your way through your time budget, Moment will send you an occasional alert, revealing how much time you’ve spent on your iPhone so far and how much time you’ve got left.

Moment is available for free download from the Apple App Store and requires iOS 7.0 or later to run. So are you ready to cure your iPhone addiction?
