Improve How Accountability Report Shows Android Apps

I find when I'm reviewing an accountability report where android apps several different apps are frequently used for a short duration each, the same apps get listed repeatedly for several days. This results in lots of scrolling through lots of instances of "<1 min." to review the whole report.

I'm wondering if higher usage times could be highlighted to make them stand out (e.g. 60 min+ or the highest 1% or 10%, whatever makes sense). Also, maybe this section of the report would be more readable if it were condensed and formatted like a table like this:

App 1
Installed on: MM DD, YYYY
Time Spent Using App: 
Day        | Sun | Mon | Tues | Wed | Thurs | Fri | Sat
Minutes  | <1   | YYY | Z      | <1     | <1      | X   | <1

App 2
Installed on: MM DD, YYYY
Time Spent Using App: 
Day        | Sun | Mon | Tues | Wed | Thurs | Fri | Sat
Minutes  | <1   | <1    | Y      | <1     | ---     | <1   | <1

...

App X
Installed on: MM DD, YYYY
Time Spent Using App: 
Day        | Sun | Mon | Tues | Wed | Thurs | Fri | Sat
Minutes  | <1   | <1    | ---    |   ---    | <1      | X   | <1

Hey Daniel,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Truth to be told, how we display Android apps on the report is actually on my "naughty list" of things that can be given some polish/fidelity.

Right now Android is grinding our way towards a huge release that will have some pretty cool impact (can learn more about it here) so it is unlikely that we will be able to make any changes to app reporting in the near future.

When we get the chance to look at it I will certainly keep what you have posted here in mind. 

Feel free to add any additional posts if you come up with any more ideas
