We’ve all seen it: Families at restaurants all looking at their cell phones instead of conversing with each other. Or people walking into walls while looking at their phones. Or someone texting while driving in the car next to you.
A complicated word for cell phone addiction is Nomophobia ("No Mobile Phone Phobia"), or the irrational fear to be without your cell phone. Our app BreakFree will help you fight this fear, reduce cell phone addication and enjoy life!
Track how much you use your phone, and get results presented in comprehensive graphs. Set personal daily limits to reduce your phone usage time, and find a balance for other important activities in your life!

Ratings and Reviews
Super Clean App. Very easy to use and simple way to look at my usage. Love the notifications when I have been on my phone for 30 minutes, knowing I should take a break and do something else.
Not Even Slightly Impressed
After having to pay for the initial app, you don’t get an introduction to the application, it’s potential uses, or even its features. Additionally, there are no features except controlling your daily limit of screen time, and if you pay extra, additional back-end analytics on your usage.
Overall, this app is a hoax and waste of money, highly recommend other apps if you’re looking for intuitive and inexpensive ways to limit your smart phone usage.
Useless - doesn’t stop the clock when I put down the phone
I purchased BreakFree yesterday to help me break the habit of looking at my phone first thing in the morning when I wake up. I set a limit of 15 minutes. Then… this morning I was wasting time on my phone for over 30 minutes and got no warning from the app.
Perhaps, I realized, the problem was that the app needed to be open and running in order to work.
I opened up the app and left my phone on the table for a couple hours while I was in another room.
The whole time, the screen time tracker kept running and running, piling up warnings, while I was not using my phone.
The app isn’t working correctly, so it’s a waste of $4. I requested a refund from Apple.
