Sam Lu part of our Productivity and have average installs from 100000 to 500000. Last Update Sept. 8, 2016. Google play rating is 85.6899. Current verison is 4.12. Actual size 4.8 MB.
Good one Should add total usage for a group of apps (eg:-all games) so that we can keep track of our kids playing time
ThAPP Overséer A must for my roster. Easy to understand, executes with excellence and delivers as advertised. Good job muthafrackers!
Gr8 Nice stats. Sad to see how much time i spend on the phone
Best I've found It does the job, it tracks the apps active while screen is on, the stats are nice, although I would like to have more options (app usage by month or custom period).
Very useful app... ... to track your mobile-usage behavior!
The app is really great. However, one more feature will be great. I want to be able to exclude a certain app usage time from total time for a day. For me, it's the alarm clock.
José A. "120415...kfr...thanks..."
One feature missing. This app is great and appears to give accurate data counts. My only request is for time stamps. The data of an apps use is shown and also the number of times of use on that date is also shown. I want to see the time stamp of use for a particular date.
Helps Me Setup My Homescreen I like to setup my homescreen based on apps I use the most so this helps a lot.
Perfect app Bye far the best ☆☆☆☆☆☆ from me.
Superb but need one more feature This app is really great and superb but I recommend one more feature called "Not used app list" or "Least used apps", so we can track them to consider uninstallation or not. Tks :)
Quality app loaded with features This is a incredible app and is probably one of the top 10 best utility apps that I have and use from day to day. With this single app I was able to get rid of three separate amps for install / remove apps, tracking the installs and removes of apps, and tracking the amount of usage of each app. This one app does a better job and has more features for performing each of those three functions than the apps that I had been using can do. . all three of those func All this functionality in one single app, free.
Good app Helps me to stop playing too much games
Efficient Thanks Sam, you are a genius
Confused How do use this
Just what I was looking for! Love that you can set reminders when you've over used an app. Thanks for this functionality, that's really all I wanted...
Not bad I had been looking for an app like this to help me keep track of my installs and see what apps I hadn't been using much
Great app but buggy Worked great the first 24 hours but then started crashing repeatedly.
Inconsistent widget behavior Seems icons on the widget are sorted by usage within last hour. That will "most recent used apps" instead of "most usage apps". Not quite sure if this is by design or just a bug. I thought it should follow duration settings which I set to 6 months.
Great App Best app tracker and manager for those who like to know. Gets better every release. Easily tracks usage of my 630+ installed apps with very little resource impact. Well done.
Great Still work
Advanced user Just like the other comment I read another great app by Sam Lu...apparently used by experienced users..surprised the users are not in the millions
Just Like All Sam Lu's Apps- Almost Perfect App Usage Manager is like all of Sam's apps. They are all almost perfect (deserve 5 Stars) in doing what Sam describes that they will do. His descriptions are thorough & leave little to be desired in telling the potential user what to expect prior to DLing. Apps are easy to use with simple & up-to-date UIs...His AppMgr Pro III (App 2 SD) is untouchable on GP (PAY FOR PRO & his other apps to support his DEVing). Other "GOODIES"= 3D Compass+ (with AR), 1Tap Cleaner Pro, aCurrency Pro (exchange rates), etc.
Lg optimus l70 Very nice thank you, only issue when I try to view an app in play store it always say not found, all of them, even this app but I go to play store they are there
Very good. Just one bug in the new feature When I set the default top window as Usage Window, the setting will change back to the default one automatically after some time.
Perfect App Manner I was able to clear off half of my memory on my phone with that but I don't use by backing them up to my Google Drive
App User Manager It is a great app to have I just love it. Why didn't you think of it before?
Missing a key feature This app works pretty good, but it's missing the ability to exclude certain apps that aren't relevant to the usage goal (e.g. driving directions, phone calls, listening to music, etc). Because of this the daily totals are basically meaningless to me.
Better than the rest, review limited by space I downloaded cover a few years ago, still in beta, didn't seem to sort what I actually used. I downloaded ms next lock screen, crashed my phone, I downloaded frequency because I figured I could make my own lock screen if I could at least see what I was using the most, failed install many times. Finally, despite the weak app store appeal, I settled for app usage so that I could have one last try at avoiding scrolling through my apps. The next day, the tutorial suggested that I turn on notifications....
Can't see just installed app in lollipop. Need time range filter, say 1 day, 7 days, 1 month. Pls don't lock changing tab to System or vice versa during search mode is on. Wish search history pops up during entering search name.
José A. "120415...kfr...thanks..."100615"
Extremely useful app I dont know why there are not many apps like this.. Good stats about app and phone usage..
Very useful app... ... to track your mobile-usage behavior! Probably the best out there.
very useful I put this on to see how much I am using my phone, and same with my wife. It is great for being able to see that we are on facebook or some other app for hours a day. Quite scary when you look at it. Also the batch uninstall of programs is great. On another note, I would like to see a couple features when looking at the app usage time line, like ignore usage less than 10s, or to put it into a pie graph to see in the hours of the day when and what is used to really be able to understand your phone usage habbits.
Very useful The over-use reminder is great to help keep me from mindlessly wasting too much time on certain apps. Great developer support too!
Didnt work There were no records after 2 weeks of installation.
Cool Finally something that works
I rarely .. ever.. give 5 stars .. but this app totally deserves it.. and I am an absolute app-aholic with way too much time on my hands, so trust me... I've been using it for a while and still finding cool little hidden perks :) The notes for instance, finally a place where I can note *why* I uninstalled an app before I download it again .. did it take up too much space or did I think it was too simple or too complicated, etc. (I rarely give bad reviews as well - unless they totally deserve it)
Great application! The application is very useful if you want to control the time you spend on your cell or on each of the installed application. The developer support is excellent. He got to quickly fix a problem that was present only at my cell. Before you give a negative review for any reason, try to speak with Sam by email and in few minutes he will reply with a solution.
Problems in individual app and total usage calculation.
Perfect Does what it says....
The "All Apps" tab is redundant without logic, it bloats the app; or should be an option to select tabs. Regardless I use for uninstalling SD Maid or Titanium Backup I'm still with you for the accurate statistics... low RAM usage without adds, facebook stupidity and/or bloatware. Simplicity is the key, please don't bloat this worthy app.
Filter out an app? I need to filter out Nova Launcher because it's always running, and it shouldn't count in my app usage. Is there a way to block it?
Best of its kind This is the best app usage tracker I've seen so far (and I've seen A LOT). It would, however, be nice to be able to count certain apps even when they are running in the background and/or with screen off. If I'm listening to, say, Pandora, I'm still using the app, even if the phone is in my pocket. EDIT: apparently, this is technically impossible. Thanks to the dev for pointing it out so quickly.
Greatest app for monitoring usage This app has come in very handy on several fronts and is very well designed - great UI with sleek graphs and other analytics. This should be a lot higher up the search rankings when searching activity log, I struggled without this for too long because I couldn't find it easily!
Great app Does what it says very well. It also looks very nice and is user friendly. I wish there was a way to see the total use of apps over a certain period of time (like over a week or something).
Great (Install App Usage FIX) At first, the app did not track apps.To fix the issue go to: App Usage -> Settings -> App/Phone usage -> (check) Use old solution ...
First impression: impressed (5 stars); Second impression: why am I not allowed to use out of date app? Why am I forced to update? (4 stars)
Great app! Is there a way to automatically create the csv exports of the data periodically? Even better would be if I could also specify the output folder so I can sync the files with Google Drive or DropBox (or better yet, export the data to a remote location periodically via E-Mail or something). I'm looking to produce a generated report of all my device activity on my PC, so I don't want to go in and export this data manually, if possible. Great work!
Wish this app floatable Wish to give nickname for each app for easy searching of them since many app names are not given appropriately
Wtf I lost all the usage time from 9th of Jan to 14th of Jan..Wat is this..plzz do something..
What should I do if there is "The history will be only added after you install app usage."?
Best app for what it does. No contest! I would've given 6 stars (out of 5) if it was possible. The app is perfect and the support is beyond amazing. I wrote a review here requesting two features: GPS (arguably out of the scope of this app) and easy export of csv files. Within a day, I was contacted and provided a working version supporting the export. This is beyond great!
Problems with few apps The App is showing the usage of only a few apps. I tried checking my usage of Youtube. It says "The history will be added only after you install app usage"....
Well made, essential app... I think these devs really found an excellent solution to managing the ever increasing app load on our phones. Very nice and thank you!
I love the app. It does exactly what I was looking for.
At a glance A very handy app to have on your device, can get a lot of info from just the one app, and free to boot! Thanks.
José A. "120415...kfr...thanks..."131215"
Help When I go to download history, or check phone history it sais "the history will only be added after you install app usage"
Very nice app, works great!
Great app! Very useful....
Excelent app, one suggestion Tracks everything and works great. To be perfect needs the feature to tap an app on timeline and show a graph and/or a list of the time app got used within each usage time. This one is a miss since timeline shows all apps usage within a day. Also, selecting app usage within an app could show only app usage and not all the grid. This one I consider an app navigation mistake
Makes phone really slow Hi I am using brand new S6 edge+ and as soon as I installed this app, started having lots of issue with lock screen. The lock screen stops responding on pressing home button from screen. Thought must be my phone so asked my friend with Note 4 to try it. He also started have same issues. App is good, but isn't useful if it makes phone lag.
Doesn't track accurately I love the concept, layout and overuse reminders in this app, but unfortunately it doesn't track my app usage accurately. It records most apps I use, but lists much less time than I actually used them. I just listened to two 20-min podcasts, but it recorded the app usage as 7 min. I also played a game for over an hour but it only said 15 min. Unfortunately being so inaccurate means the app is useless.
Amazing app. Loved it. This is very useful for me. Keeps a track of how much I'm using the phone. Just one feedback, and I'm not even knocking points off for this one: the over usage reminder appears way too frequently. Becomes a bit of an annoyance to see the same notification so many times. Maybe decrease the frequency?
Great app One small suggestion . Option to move your data to the sd Ext sd card. And add another Tab to installed system uninstalled and missing... I restored from a nanoid back up and missing could tell me what to reinstall .
A+ Probably the best of its kind, plus the DEV team is excellent and actually listen to suggestions and implement the good ones!
smart, attractive ui. does what I need.?
Best app for usage tracking. Simple, effective, low on resources and still gives in depth data. Already recommending to friends. Is there a way to change the default orange color?
Great app Does what it says very well. It also looks very nice and is user friendly. I wish there was a way to see the total use of apps over a certain period of time (like over a week or something). Edit:Feature already exists. Thanks dev
Useful This is truly an awesome app that I think everyone should have. Has clutter-free design and great features.
I just wonder if ... You can sort the apps according to THE NEWEST APPS & THE NEWEST UPDATES separately. I think it would be very helpful.
Solid app that does what I got it for. I like the breakdowns by app, especially, and that the notification can be turned on or off! There are a few things I would like to see, in order of importance to me: ability to choose when the "day" starts (I'm usually up after midnight), reminders for continuous app usage (10 minutes since I opened the app, as well as 10 minutes overall today), and ability to set a page as the app's homepage (I'll be using the usage monitoring features much more often than the app managing features).
Great tool to fight clutter This is such a great tool, it quietly records how often you use an app and allows you to uninstall all those apps that you don't use. Thank you it works like a charm. Sam Lu Apps are always solid.
Fantastic!!! Everything i ever wanted in an app tracking app, that too in material design! New users may get a bit overwhelmed by the options though, maybe there could be an option for a simpler UI? Just a suggestion ☺
Smart, attractive ui. does what I need.? I've been using for awhile now and after reviewing my stats, this app very accurately reflects my usage. With the notifications I have confirmed my suspected behaviors and reduced the time spent on my phone which was my goal.
Activity vs usage? Not clear how Activity vs usage are related. App showed more than an hour of Activity but for one app, Usage was only 33 minutrpes. How does that work?
This app is good at what it does. The latest upgrade adds ads at the bottom of the screen, which I find to be distracting; it also adds an option to remove them by paying a one time fee or via a yearly subscription. This app is good at what it does; for me, it was nice to see what I was actually using on my phone.
Outrageous Pricing! $9.00 to buy outright (regularly $20), or you can pay $3 (or more if the dev raises it) per year for the rest of your life! I wouldn't mind purchasing for a reasonable price, but this is ridiculous, as the dev will no doubt soon discover. Unfortunately, by then, s/he will have lost those of us who have uninstalled and will never look back. Costly way to learn the Golden Goose lesson.
Used to be a good, quality app ! No more ! Uninstalling .
Very useful If you want this sort of thing, it's one of the best. You still need to understand some things about what counts as "in use" but it's still very useful.
I have pie on my face. It does work with Android 06 OS. The author was good enough to follow me through with the settings and learning all the many functions it has. It's now working as it should. There is only one thing that's annoying, and it's probably because I'm not pressing the right buttons. But, it notifies me of every app I use, as being overused. I turned off all notifications but it still pops up to tell me I'm overusing the current app. So I go back in and the notification button is on again. So I turn it back off and it comes back on. I surely must be doing something wrong but can't seem to find it. Since I would love to have this issue fixed, and it is most likely something I'm doing wrong, I'll give this app a 5 star rating. Thanks to the author for the wash cloth to wipe the pie from my face.
Upgrade??? What a sneaky way to get an advertising banner on bottom of upgrade from Version 4.3 to Version 4.0? And then ask for money to downgrade to model with more features & the advertising that was not there before. I am uninstalling & installing previous version!
Added ads. Pro version insanely expensive. Well designed app and seems accurate. Wanted a sort by last accessed date option, but now I know you can filter by time I'll try the total accessed time sort instead. I hope a reserve sort option is added though.
The Best! Can u put move to sd features? Otherwise this apps rocks!
Very useful for time tracking Helps me to track how much time do I spend on Skype calls with clients or buying groceries
Pretty good... Please make it so I can "ignore" certain apps. For example, "motlauncher" had run up 4 hours use while I was asleep. Makes any daily totals useless.
Very useful app... ... to track your mobile-usage behavior! Probably the best out there.
Love it Really useful, especially for tracking app updates. Doesn't crash, battery and CPU usage is minimal and the notifications aren't too frequent.
Nicely designed, well thought out app with plenty of info I just downloaded this today. Good initial impression. My suggestion is to add optional color schemes; I'd especially like a theme including the blue and black color you used on the pinch gesture tip screen. The app would then be perfect for me. Nice work!
Wonderful app Reveals our addiction to phone & apps
Awesome app management features This app is awesome, it shows you your most used apps by time spent, number of launches, etc. And has many other features like tracking which apps you've uninstalled, date of install, version numbers, play store links, export a list of your apps, etc.
A great app but inaccurately as background apps like Touchwiz make up usage time. Developer did no respond to my messages regarding it.
One of the best App I use.
this is such a great app. accidentally found this. and it's so cool
Good App This is a good app if you want to know how much time you use on apps.
Very useful app
Clean and orderly experience
Should be a easy setup I did not like it keep making sound everytime a app was running that was set up and the ignore list
Satisfied visual data nerd Downloaded a few other apps that would track my phone usage because I geek out on data, but what I generally found with these were unappealing outputs. Happy to see the developers of this app thought about and focused as much time on the design and interactive visual interface to display the info.
Good app Nice, professional looking, USER FRIENDLY, and feature rich. Great job Sam Lu
Good app Nice, professional looking, USER FRIENDLY, and feature rich. Great job Sam Lu
All i need Top app.. good functions.. easy to use.. no bugs ?
Why whenever i dont open this apps for several days, there were no records for those days? Do I have to open the apps everyday first time in the morning?
Professional Really nice and effective at what it suppose to do
Great... consistently solid apps by this dev
cash ruined everything around me the free version is no longer usable due to devs making changes designed to force you to upgrade. I can deal with most ads, but removing functionality is just dev being greedy.
Stopped working by developer intent This was the first app I have observed doing self-destruct to try to grab my money. Naturally I would never trust this developer not to do anything bad in the back again. Just saying right before uninstall. It's been a fun ride, have a nice day. ?
Good app Must have to monitor the wastage if time on phones :) specially for students
Great app Yes, it's working only while still opened in background and not thow-out by Android from RAM. That is why I runned Tasker and command it to run AppUsage every time screen is on. The thing is, dev. While there was no ROM changes on my phone. App stopped tracking apps at August 28 like a donkey. I tried to close/run it. Restart phone. Nothing. Does it something or this is a trial period. Thank you.
Priced out of range? How can the developer justify a price for an in ap like this! Used it every day & was waiting for an update with a price to keep up the development - but this type of pricing makes no sense. I think a lot of customers will agree & STOP using it! It's off my list. What right do you stop a user from using an older version. You have just changed the rules! Bad!!!!! Sam Lu is getting a bad reputation - grab the money, lose the service from was once a respected developer!
Great! But... Needs an option to allow tracking for specified Apps. There are only around 5 Apps I want the usage information on. If that could be implemented it would be a 5* from me and a purchase. Please make this happen! To the reply, I may have worded it wrong. I want to choose which apps I see when they were opened and how long they were used. For example there are a lot of Apps I would like to know when they opened and how long for but there are many more apps I would like to remove from the list.
Developers Curse!!! Which is caused by a developer's greed. They have updated this app to a double-edged sword!! ugly ad addition (over sized ad banner) plus over pricing for purchase to what a reviewer has called this as a curiosity app. So this is the game with the addition of a ugly ad banner people are almost forced to purchase the app or uninstall it. I almost told at least 15 co-workers about this app but now with the double edge sword features I refuse. It was 5 star worthy but the curse of greed is a app killer.
Still enjoy using app.!!! I've been using for free . I don't pay for apps because of one reason. There is no way to know if a pay version ,or updated version will function satisfactory. Too many times I've seen apps not function after only an update. A developer retains all rights to their app. Though code and function of such may be public if a person designs a version of their own they can do with it how they please. If you we're to read Google policy you would know this.
Fantastic Unfortunately, it does exactly what I needed to do. Which is to let me know how much I'm really using my phone!
2 stars shy of what I would have liked to give because on my other phone which has ColorOS, the app fails to record the usage and will often times display usage of 0 even though the phone is used normally. Will change it if and when rectified.
Uninstalled Used to be a good until they add too much advertising
Forced update PLUS adverts on page Otherwise does it's job
Good interface This app is very pleasant to look at. I haven't compared it to competitors but so far it works smoothly and provides a lot of info on my app usage . It has a timeline view which basically shows you when you accessed an app and for how long throughout the day. But I primarily use the calendar view which shows me how much I used my phone on a daily basis in the current month. If you're trying to monitor your phone usage this app is perfect.
Over priced Free version doesn't leave much for the app itself either. Used to really like this app. Prices need to be adjusted. I can't stick with free version and it's limited features. If there's a sale or discount, then maybe I'll try giving this app another shot. Very disappointed. Edit: The daily usage summary (email) is something I looked forward into getting but it only displays 2 of the top apps. The rest are pro version
Very useful (Edit: Now seeing ads even though I subscribed! Minus one star. Update: Fixed. 5 stars again!)If you want this sort of thing, it's one of the best. You still need to understand some things about what counts as "in use" but it's still very useful.
The check phone history does not work One of the main reasons I downloaded this app was to know how many times I checked my phone in a day. But when you go in the application to check phone history this message appears... (No check phone history! The history will only be added after you install App Usage) well that makes no sense how can I be in the menu if I didn't download the app already. Really disappointed I was about to buy a lifetime subscription. But sadly now uninstalling
Ridiculous pricing for a curiosity app 1 or 2 bucks ok..but yearly subs? What's this? Microsoft 365? Sorry this is just a non essential, for fun curiosity app...no matter how well written. Ads I can accept..but not this kind of pricing.
Was perfect app, but... ... euro price are way too high (at least for me)... Discounted prices = 1year/over 3€ and lifetime 17€... and free version have ads and recommendations everywhere... Developer do not care about loyal (free version) users. I will support (like I do many dev/aps) if prices are fair. Changing from 5 stars to 2 stars. (I use mostly "manage apps"-features only) ...sorry my broken English.
Unreasonably overpriced Just for something informative and paying this much!? Will definitely try some other apps.
Problem I want to see my app usage, but when I go to that page, it says it won't show me my history until I install App Usage. But App Usage is the app that I'm using to look for it! What else do I need to install?
Great I just wish there was a boot up on start option.
Its great but Love this app but how the feck do you delete the logs??
Kudos for this beautiful free app
Unable to remove Home screen as an app EDIT: The support is speedy and helpful. The app does a wonderful job of informing of phone usage. Can recommend it.
It really helps me manage my time n my phone.
Awesome Very usefull....
(Used to be the) best of its kind I've been using this app for over a year, and was finding it to be so good that it actually made me feel bad that it was free and I couldn't reward the author for his efforts. Well, what do you know, be careful what you wish for! There now is a price on an ad-free version and it is ridiculously exorbitant. Two, three bucks I can understand (and I personally would pay up to five, albeit I doubt many others would), but anything over that is highway robbery (aghm*subscription*). Back to the search box. Sigh...
New permissions? Used happilly for a while with great functionality but now requires additional permissions such as the phones identity. I'm always wary of apps slowly asking for more personal info
