On the heels of my post yesterday on digital distraction comes… an app to track just that. It’s called Escape by Focuslist. It will track exactly how many times you check email, look at Facebook, etc. each day. And shows you exactly how much time is consumed by these activities. Kind of scary, but could be a good wake-up call. My question is, if it’s on my laptop it’s not going to know how much I’m distracted on my phone and Ipad. I didn’t see it listed in the App Store.
Anyway, I think it would be astonishing to see the stats over the course of a day. Maybe I don’t want to download it.
