What are you spending your time on? (iOS edition)

If there's a similar Android setting, please let me know.

On your iPhone, go to Settings > Battery. Make sure Battery Percentage is selected.

Once Battery Usage loads below, switch to Last 7 Days and hit the clock icon on the right.

What are you spending the most time on?

My top three are Messages (4 hrs), Facebook (2.4 hours), and NY Times (2.3 hours).

Well, these can be depressing stats...

Instagram (5.8 hrs), Alien Blue (reddit client, 3.5 hrs), Twitter (2.2 hrs, which is funny bc I don't tweet I just read the news).

Android (on Samsung phones, at least) sort of has this functionality built in. Enter *#*#4636#*#* in the Phone/dialer to get into the Testing menu, then select Usage statistics, then sort by Usage time. I'm not sure how accurate it is (or how often it resets), since my phone suggests that I have spent almost 8 hours in Settings.

I would not recommend poking around in the Device information submenu if you don't know what you're doing.

I found that game really fun until the gated IAP areas. At that point I just deleted it.

Would strongly prefer to just pay a set amount for levels and that's it.

IAPs can go to hell.
