Nothing like an app giveaway to shake up a lazy Sunday, right? If you remember, Instant launched for BlackBerry 10 back in August 2014 and it's the perfect tool for tracking how much time you spend on your trusty BlackBerry each day. Some folk won't care for it, but for us real BlackBerry addicts it's interesting to see how our usage pans out day to day.
The purpose of Instant is to count simply how many minutes you spend on your BlackBerry each day. The app is headless, so you don't need to keep it open, although it does have a nice Active Frame where you can view your daily usage as you can see below.
Once you open Instant, you'll be shown the minutes you have used your BlackBerry for on that day at the top of the display. To the right of that is a quick share tab for Twitter so you can quickly fire off an update that will read like the following - "Used my BlackBerry for 24 minutes today via #InstantBB'.
Once you have used Instant for more than a day you will notice that under the minute counter I've just mentioned you will see a list of the previous days and you can 'instantly' compare usage over those days. If you want to compare even more days than are shown on the home screen you can use the 'History' tab at the base of the display.
You will also notice there's a 'Reminders' tab. Here you can select your daily limit and the reminder frequency if you fancy getting usage notifications in your BlackBerry Hub. And last but not least is the ability to share your daily usage via any application that's integrated into your Hub.
As usual, to get your free copy just head on over to BlackBerry World, pull down from the top bezel, select 'Redeem' and enter the code INSTANTEMBER. The price will then change to free up until the point where all the free copies have been downloaded.
