How Much Time are You Spending on Apps?

  1. Go to Settings.

  2. Scroll down and tap Battery.

  3. Under the Battery Usage section, tap the Clock icon.

The time summary is shown under the app name in the list.  You can toggle between the Last 24 Hours or the Last 7 Days.  In the image below, you can see I have used Facebook for 8.3 hours in the last 7 days!  

There are other apps available to track your app usage such as Moment.  Moment creates a beautiful and easy to interpret bar graphs of your app usage.  The app requires daily screenshots of your battery usage which may get a little tedious.
