Attentive is ready for iOS 17!

Successfully reduce mindless screen time today! Attentive is your friendly guide to growing healthy smartphone habits. With science-backed tips and techniques, learn how to spend less time on your phone and avoid digital distractions, so that your phone truly serves you, your productivity, health and happiness!

Attentive makes building habits that work easy and fun: begin with small daily steps that soon add up to big improvements. Become happy with the way you use your phone: keep what makes using your phone meaningful and sidestep the digital distraction rabbit holes.

For more control of your time. For improved focus and flow. For less stress, better mental health, and greater wellbeing.

Because in the end, your life’s experiences are made of what you place your attention on.


We’re all navigating a world full of distractions: with just one tap away, what starts as a quick look at a text message can easily escalate into 30 minutes of random scrolling and news checking.

We’re losing way too much of our time online and are struggling to maintain our train of thought. When screen time skyrockets, we may feel addicted to our phones.

If this sounds familiar to you, don’t feel bad - you’re not alone! You’re just a modern day tech user like all of us.


With Attentive, you can introduce good phone habits into your life: you’ll learn to use your phone more consciously and effectively so you can start to enjoy the present moment; make the transition from meaningless to meaningful!


Stay focused and mindful: Attentive will support you in reducing digital distractions to achieve true flow and productivity. App & website blocking with Attentive is private and secure because we rely on Apple’s Screen Time API, and not a VPN. We don’t see any of your apps & websites, so all of your personal data stays on your device.


Explore and form healthy phone habits step-by-step with our easy and effective Practices. Each Practice offers useful background information with insights from the latest research in psychology, as well as a short task for everyday life. Complete all Practices at your own pace. We designed Attentive to be quick and doable for everyone, at any time, even if you're on a busy schedule.

Set reminders to complete Practices at a time that fits in nicely in your day and develop them into healthy habits. It’s manageable and sustainable, and you’ll experience real progress and improvements soon.


To reach your screen time goals, visualizing and celebrating your achievements is key. Insights lets you see your personal growth and self improvement at a glance. It's a perfect habit tracker for staying motivated and on course towards better phone habits. Feel great for making progress!


Not another meditation app. No need to do a digital detox, only to then relapse to old habits. No falling short of high aspirations and self control.

Instead, Attentive tackles the problem at its root: you’ll gain awareness of internal and external distraction triggers that draw you to use your phone. You’ll discover patterns and pitfalls. You’ll become reflective about your current phone usage. And most importantly, you’ll establish maintainable routines that actually work for you; healthy habits that last.


Growing healthy smartphone habits is a process and we’re happy to help you with your journey!

Let this app help you

It kinda sounds a bit tricky and suspect, but this app can truly help you to free yourself from the hours of endless scrolling and trained muscle memory that fills you with emptiness!
The app is wonderfully designed and well thought out helping you untrain bad habits and other unwanted behaviors! Definitely would recommend this for even occasional users

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much!

We will continue to put much love and thought into Attentive and hope that it will keep helping you to form good phone habits!

Best wishes,

Pretty good, couple flaws

I really like the educational aspect and the encouragement to track triggers that make you pick up your phone, but once I’ve learned and completed a practice sometimes it won’t let me continue it. For example, I can’t add to or see the alternatives list, I can only mark it as done each day. I also cannot add to or see my triggers for personal or work list, I can only mark as complete for the day. If these things were fixed, I’d really love this app! It has reduced my screen time so much.

Developer Response ,

That's great feedback, thank you!

We'll continue to improve the app in the future!

Best wishes,
