    I've tried searching google, and the market, but apparently I'm not using the correct keywords to find what I want.

    I'm looking for an app, preferably free because I'm not made of money, that all it does is log the time an app is started, and how long it is used (actively). It would be really nice if it could save to logs to the sd card.

    I'm curious as to how much time I spend doing different things on my phone.

    If this has already been answered, I'm sorry for not digging farther and would gladly take a link to another post as an answer.

    Thanks!

    All that shows me is how long it has been running. I would like to see the last time it was accessed. Not just how long it is running.

    Sometimes the browser stays running in the background, but it's not actively getting used. Maps trys to run in the background all the time, same with google voice when I have not told them to open/run.

    Understand a little better now?

    Having problems editing.

    Think of it as the idle verses running processes on a computer.

    I don't just want to see the usage of the apps I've downloaded, but the system ones as well (text messaging, email, browser, etc)

    It's really close. It does show the number of times it's been launched since last reboot, but not the time it was last used. It's a good start, and thank you.
