Offtime is an App That Encourages You to Take a Break from Your Phone

Offtime is an Android app that makes it easy to bring mindfulness to bad habits like incessantly checking your phone. Rather than have you permanently unplug from the start, the app challenges you to become aware of your behaviors so that they can be changed. The app keeps track of the apps that consume most of your time, as well as how much of your life is sucked up by phone activity.

Offtime has different modes, encouraging you to set your phone down for focused time for yourself, work, with family or anything else that deserves your undivided attention for an extended period of time. Instead of shutting everything out completely, the app makes it so that you can still receive a few urgent notifications at your discretion from select contacts and apps.
