Instant's creator Shashwat Pradhan mentioned that the goal behind the app was to create a contextually-aware lifelogging platform:

We started building Instant as an app to make the user aware of their device usage to cut down on addiction. At Emberify we have been working on contextual technologies so we integrated it, making Instant a lifelogging platform. Now users can track their entire day and quantify their time.

The app is now available on the Play Store. While device usage functionality is free, you have to shell out $0.99 on a yearly basis to access app usage. How many of you are interested in the kind of functionality Instant offers?
