I need an app to track how much I use apps

I'm interested in tracking how much time per week I spend on certain apps and on web browsing in general. What are the best apps (iOS and/or Android) that can help me keep track of this? I'm not interested in blocking or limiting my usage right now, just tracking it. Thanks!

Moment does exactly this! I have been using it for a few weeks and it tracks your usage and show time spent on each app.

If you're running the iOS 12 beta, the Screen Time feature does this. It tracks how much time you spend on apps and gives you a breakdown every week of your total time spent.

Oh cool. Yeah I updated my iOS and on the Settings>Battery and under battery usage there's a clock icon to toggle. (I'm surprised I only spent 5.8 hours on Instagram the last week.)

The new Digital Wellbeing tools in Android Pie do this. It's in beta now, but I was able to sign up and download it last week, and I think it'll be out in a month or so for everyone.

Thrive for Android. Lets you specify how long you want to use each app per day and then cuts you off when that time arrives.
