The "Clock Timer":
See your time slip by!
Float Timer is one of our helpers to get you out of your addiction. It appears on all your apps so that you can see for yourself the time slipping by. Also, it changes color as you reach near your usage limit. Henceforth, every time you launch your addictive apps, this nicely designed ticking "Clock Timer" would appear next to it. You are free to drag and drop it anywhere. We don't block your app notifications or calls like other apps because we want YOU to be the best judge of YOUR time.
YourHour On Home Screen!
The new Widget feature of the YourHour app is a cherry to the cake! The widget on the home screen helps the user in viewing their usage time, unlock counts & set target limit for the day, without having to launch the app again and again. The widget appears even on the lock screen thus, avoiding the need to even unlock your phone!
We Remind you!
YourHour provides its users Daily and Weekly report cards for their app usage. The Daily usage report reviews the usage on individual apps, with app run-time and app launch count for each app separately. Also, it sends a consolidated report notification showing the Top 5 Most Used Apps of the Day. The Weekly usage report will summarise the last 7 days phone usage and unlock count for you. The user can also see how much time he has spent on individual apps and app launch count for each day throughout the week.
Your Phone’s Routine!
What's Been Cooking is a sequential diary of the whole day round. It shows the entire day schedule of your phone in one go. It goes on recording the time you launched an app, the time you spent there, the apps you switched over, etc. In short, it is the WHAT, WHEN and HOW MUCH of all your apps. However, if you be fixed to your goal, and keep that screen away for more than 10 minutes, that time will be your *HAPPY TIME*! But that doesn't mean you break your vow after 10 minutes! You can also view the Your App's Lifeline to know the breakdown of the app's daylong usage in Tap That App screen!.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some interesting FAQs about the app! These might help to clear all your queries!
Q1. What does the graph on the Dashboard Represent?
The graph depicts your unlock counts for the Past 7 Days in the form of a Bar Chart. So, if it's Wednesday today, the graph goes on to the last Thursday!
Q2. Why does the Unlock Counts appear zero when the app is installed?
The Unlock Counts are calculated from the point you install the app. Thus, they appear as zero on first view.
Q3. Then why do the Phone Usage time show value even for yesterday?
The time for which you use your Phone is derived from the system and so, I show you information about the average of past days usage and the day going on! And then I reset it everyday, for you, at midnight, 00:00 hours!
Q4. When and how many notifications does the app provide?
My friend, I would come daily at 9:30 p.m. to notify you of your Daily Usage Report and visit you once a week on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. to give you your Weekly Report. However you can always choose the time of your preference (Settings > Set Daily Report Time/ Set Weekly Report Time) for our meetings!
Q5. What is the "Float Timer" and why does it change color?
Float Timer is one of my helper to get you out of your addiction. It appears on all your apps so that you can see for yourself the time slipping by. Also, my buddy cares alot for you, so he changes color as you reach near your usage limit. By default I have set your usage for individual apps at 30 minutes. Although you can customise it as per your convinience. My buddy becomes AMBER after you reach 70% of your set usage for the app and RED once you cross 100%. You would not try to make him that angry, would you?
Q6. What does the Timeline depict?
The Timeline is a sequential diary of What's Been Cooking the whole day round. It goes on recording the time you launched an app, the time you spent there, the apps you switched over, etc. In short, it is the WHAT, WHEN and HOW MUCH of all your apps. However, if you be fixed to your goal, and keep that screen away for more than 10 minutes, that time will be your HAPPY TIME! But that doesn't mean you break your vow after 10 minutes!
Q7. Where Does the daily report generated?
The Daily Report can be viewed at any time on the Tap That App screen (second right swipe from the Dashboard). It will display the apps you've been using and the time you've spent on each, out of your daily limit. With one tap on the app, you can see the timeline of the app alongwith the app lauch count! The Weekly report is one swipe away from there on the Sneak Through the Week screen. It will show you your weekly average and week long usage for each app on just a tap!
Q8. Why does the Dashboard change color?
Just like my Timer buddy, the app Dashboard also changes color as you reach your Overall Usage Limit. This is also customisable in the Settings > Themes option.
