Not specific enough. Say it shows I’m using the kindle app. Great, I want to know how many hours were reading programming books or non-fiction vs how many in thriller and how many cozy mysteries.
Or take Safari, was I just goofing off, doing a google search realted to something or some work or farm project or reading news and forums?
Or say it shows I was on Facebook. It calls that Social Media, However, the only use I have for Facebook is 2 groups on photography and photo organizing, and 2 groups on sheep. I’d want to know how long I was in heac of those groups. And neither of those cases is social media for me, it’s work. Especially sicne I hate Facebook.
So screen time does not provide fine enough data for me.
It’s the same problem I have with most of the timing apps that track usage on the Mac too. When I boot my machine I automatically load Safari, Calendar, Mail, Omnifocus and DEVONThink. But I use all those tools for work and play projects and the information on how much time I am in those apps doesn’t tell me what I was using it for.
So what I do is every once in a while I track my time on 6 minute increments, what was I doing the last 6 minutes. reason it that’s an easy decimal of hours and minutes. So I can spend, say 6 minutes here on MPU using safar and that’s one category and 6 minutes on Safari entering in sheep data to the on-line poriton of the registry, those are totally different uses for the same app.
Ditto for Scrivener, LibreOffice, Kindle and nearly all apps I use.
