The digital age is changing lives and more people are using it to make money, touch lives, and do more productive things other than you who probably doesn’t even have a job but is always scrolling through Instagram and Twitter.

I purposely put Moments as the last because I feel it will really help your life. This one is for you, just in case you are addicted to your phone or tempted to check your messages when you are not supposed to? Or may be you have missed real-life conversations all because you’re buried into emails and social media on your phone? The app called Moment was created by an iOS developer, Kevin Holesh, when he found himself using his phone at the expense of real life interactions. It let’s you track your phone with the hope of bringing balance to the time we spend on our mobile phone and in real life. It also lets you set up occasional notifications like, “Hey you’ve been on your phone for 30 minutes today”, ” Hey you’ve passed your daily usage limit already”. Moments is currently free on iTunes and available to iPhone users.
