Want to Track, Limit, or Compare your Phone App Usage?

With technology dominating so much of our daily lives, it can be easy to find ourselves swept away, hyper-focused and unaware of the reality of our time. It’s our hope that through this four-week series, we are able to help shed light on technology’s role and purpose within our lives. Below we have listed a few phone apps that can help you monitor and even limit your phone usage.
