***The First All-in-One Space Saving Suite!***
*** Get the most powerful photos management app without any cost***

FreeUpSpace is a slick and polished space saving app for your iOS device that can resize photos, clean duplicates and compress photos & videos. It’s aimed at recovering wasted space of your device so that you can save more. This app gives you control on how you release space on your device. Use any or all of the 3 power packed modules to put your photos of your digital drawer on a diet:

1) Find duplicate photos: If you love clicking photos and selfies endlessly, you should use this feature very often. This helps you find duplicate photos of all levels ranging from least similar to exact duplicates. You have the control to set the duplicity level. Even better, you can adjust and set time and gps criteria for high accuracy.

2) Resize Photos: This is the best when you want to reduce the frame size of a photo you clicked from your iOS device. You can save a significant amount of space by resizing large sized photos. Quality is maintained while reducing the size. And even more, to make a photo fit perfectly on another device’s screen, you can simply resize it by setting a smaller width.

3) Compress Photos & Videos: You can save chunks of storage space by compressing large photos & videos. So if you’ve shot a lot of videos & photos with your iOS device, don’t forget to compress them when you’re running out of storage space. And once you’ve compressed them, you can easily share them with your friends via attachments, messaging apps etc.

This app works best if:
1) You need to release storage space to save more photos & videos
2) You’re using a 16GB iOS device.
3) You’re lazy finding duplicates manually.
4) You’re unable to attach a photo or video because it’s too large.
5) You’re running out of storage space on a holiday!

Get rid of the frequent message ”Your iPhone’s storage is almost full”

World’s first iOS app that can recover more free space on your iOS device so that you can click and snap more and more photos & videos!

** Unplug and Digital Detox, just enough. **

The award winning ( OFFTIME ) lets you monitor your smartphone usage in real time and take dedicated timeouts from the digital. The app’s intuitive analytics make it easy to identify your habits and take action to change them.

— Introductory price: $2,99 (US) —

Find balance instead of giving in to digital distraction – start to unplug, take a digital detox and focus on your work, enjoy quality time with the people you care about, or simply find some peace of mind. As proven by science, with ( OFFTIME ) you can improve your wellbeing and productivity.

“Addicted to your smartphone? There’s an APP for that!” – Daily Mail (UK)

( OFFTIME ) has three components that support your digital balance and digital detox:
1. tracking and comparing your device usage
2. setting personal device usage goals and accessing tips & articles
3. pursuing and sharing some digital OFFTIME (on iOS the flight mode for now)

** Please note **
For monitoring your smartphone usage in real time and displaying your hotspots of usage ( OFFTIME ) needs to continuously use GPS/location data. Even though ( OFFTIME )’s GPS usage is optimized, continued use of GPS running in the background will decrease battery life.

( OFFTIME ) provides a daily overview and its alert functions give you instant feedback on your usage behavior. You can set and track personal goals and limit your device usage to ensure your personal work-life-tech balance and your healthy digital detox daily. Learn how much time you spend with your digital devices and get support to disconnect.

The app lets you understand your digital habits through insightful graphs and appealing visualizations of your smartphone usage, clustered by daily, weekly, monthly and total usage reports. Using “locations” you can find your usage hotspots. With the badge icon you can see conveniently your daily unlocks or collect your time offs.

Once you opt-in to our new server comparison feature, you can easily see how your usage compares to that of other users each day.

Take back control and focus on what matters to you. Give your device some peace and reconnect with your loved ones.

Just before taking off you can share your “Offtime” moment with your friends and loved ones via Social Media. Inspire them to do the same and reconnect in the analog world.

Curious or concerned about the drivers of distraction and digital device addiction? ( OFFTIME ) also comes with “hints” – a growing series of English articles that offer useful information and practical advice for dealing with the pitfalls of hyperconnectivity.

Earning trust through data privacy and security
( OFFTIME ) takes data handling and privacy very serious. By default, ( OFFTIME ) stores as much data as possible on your device itself and allows you to opt-out from all server storage. As your data should be yours, for all the “Quantified Self” enthusiasts, ( OFFTIME ) offers an export function so you can get your own tracking data in a CSV file.
