The Offtime app goes deeper than just managing your work and free time when it comes to social media, it encourages mindfulness and unplugging in a way that helps you manage the kinds of "junk" you consume each day. The app also shows you exactly how much time you spend on specific apps, and your phone in general, which can be a huge wake up call.
