It’s about time we start to actually know the amount of time we
spend on our smartphones. More importantly the usage of applications we have in
our smartphone. Let it be social networks or other kinds.
Whether you need to know in details how many times it was that you have unlocked your phone (something that no one can take care of normally). Or perhaps, you are interested in knowing a clear breakdown of which apps have been keeping you busy today. The breakdowns are available by day, hour and app there is a lot more.
There is not much difference between ActionDash and Digital
Wellbeing however, ActionDash is missing some key features of Google’s tool,
for instance the ability to set app usage limits.
Having similarities isn’t necessarily a bad thing infact there are certain way in which ActionDash is much easier to navigate. Meaning that you can just simply swipe left or right, whereas, with Digital Wellbeing has more hidden screens.
Only Google knows the exact reason as to why they have limited their app to Pixel Phones and Android One devices.
Which unfortunately covers a small portion of android users. Perhaps, this is one of the major features and an edge that ActionDash has over Digital Wellbeing, it is available to all android phones.
The opportunity to bring Google’s latest features to devices
that are unlikely to ever receive them from Google / OEMs / carriers certainly
is always appealing to me,” Chris Lacy, the developer behind ActionDash, says
in an email.
