Yes, Mind-e-fy team has 6 years of experience in core Android app development. In the past years, we've developed many apps which solve daily life problems. In this tenure, we have developed more than a dozen Android apps and the 'YourHour' app is our personal favorite. Please check out our portfolio here.
The most challenging part was to design an architecture that can be robust and scalable to handle so many users, currently, we have 3 Million users on the app across 150+ countries.
Our app has been rated by over 65K+ users and currently, the rating is 4.5 out of 5 and it's the best-rated Screen Time control app on the market.
The interviewee, Rahul Purswani, is the CEO of Mind-e-fy Solutions. Based out of Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India, the company has built the YourHour app which currently stands as the world's #1 screentime app with over 3 million downloads.
Inshorts - It is a single-screen news app that will notify you with news feeds delivered in 60 words.
We have been working on the app for the last 3 years.
In one word, the need was - smartphones! Today, anybody and everybody, from a kid to a granny, all people are smartphone users. And over the years, this usage has been transformed into an addiction. Today, the time has come when we can hardly imagine our lives without phones. And this addiction has made us lag behind in the race of life. We are losing productivity, innovation, personal space, and quality time. And so, with the 'YourHour' app, I aim to make the users aware of the amount of precious time they waste being glued to their phones, and provide them a handy control over the same.
'YourHour' app is based on a simple concept of tracking the users' time spent on their phones. The app incorporates certain features that help users to keep pace with their usage. The app counts the number of phone unlocks, the number of hours spent on the mobile screen, and provides the user with a daily and weekly report of each app usage. It also features a floating timer that keeps showing the users the time they spend on an app while using it. It's more like a stopwatch for app usage. The app also displays the phone's daily timeline of the apps used by the user, at what point of the day, and for how much time.
We have been working on the upcoming features for a while. With our past version of the app, we tried to make the users aware of their phone usage, and in the upcoming features, we are planning to provide them with a solution to minimize the same.
It would be definitely encouraging if the users develop concern about phone addiction and install our app to help them with that. Also, their reviews and ratings could help us improve our app further and keep track of our progress towards our aim of developing a healthy population behind smartphones. They are also welcome to share this concern with friends and family and enlighten them with our concept as well.
At times, do you feel like getting more & more addicted to your smartphone and not able to stay FOCUSED? From waking up and sleeping with it next always. But is this affecting personal & professional life lately? Does it feel like losing Control & decreasing productivity?
Then we have got a Smart Digital Solution to achieve digital wellness.
Our app gives a variety of fun, user-friendly and personalized features that can help to track & control usage.
Key features of YourHour:

The dashboard provides all essential information in one place. It keeps track of "Usage Time" & “Unlock Count" & thereby, gives a comparative info-graphic view of today’s and past 7 days activity.

By analyzing data of the past 7 days, we define the Category of Phone Addict that the user currently belongs to from this listed six categories vis-a-vis Addicted, Obsessed, Dependent, Habitual, Achiever, and Champion.
? "Clock Timer": See Days slip by!
"Floating Timer" is one of the unique features to show real-time statistics. It appears on all apps so that users can see for themselves their time slipping by. It can easily be dragged & dropped anywhere on the screen. And it would even change color from Green to Amber to Red, highlighting that the preset limit has reached.
We don't block notifications or calls because we want users to be the best judge of their time.
