IOS - App appearance and features

What you'll learn

Below you'll find all the features available on the RescueTime Classic iOS app version 1.5.1.

This Device

This Device screen is your home screen for mobile activity— it displays your total mobile time for the day along with the number of pickups, times, and locations.

If you tap "You picked up your iPhone X times", you'll get location information along with the duration of each pickup.   Important note: location data stays on your iOS device and it is never synched with RescueTime's servers.

You may clear your location data at any time by tapping "Clear Location Data" at the bottom of the screen.  Clear Location Data will remove all the location data stored on the device up to when the removal took place but the app will begin recording new location data after that date.


The Desktop screen displays your desktop logged time for the day along with a list of your top activities.

Scrolling down will show you your productivity pulse:

Date Navigation

By default, this device screen will display the current day's data. You can navigate forward or backward on the date, by tapping the arrow symbols  < and > located at the left and right of your desktop time.

To navigate to a different day, tap on the date at the top of the screen, and a date picker will automatically be displayed. You can then select a given date. Please note that you can only go back 30 days from today's date. 


To see a list of the activities for the day, click the Activities icon at the bottom. From the desktop screen, you can also click the see full list link under the top activities section.

You'll see a listing of your top activities by category.


Goals can be accessed by tapping the Goals icon at the bottom of the screen. You'll see all the goals you have set up and the progress you have made towards them. 

Create a Goal

Congratulations, you created a goal on your mobile device! 🎉

Delete a Goal

To delete a goal, tap the goal you would like to delete. You will see your goal settings and at the bottom select " Delete Goal"

Once deleted you will receive the notification "Your Goal was successfully deleted"
