LifeStats Automatic Journal Keeps Tabs of Your Day
Most of us live very active lives. This is after all why we’re fans of mobile technology, as our favorite little devices allow us to stay connected with the world while out and about. But because we’re so active, it’s often hard to keep track of exactly where we go and what we do at all times. In other words, we may spend a little more time procrastinating and doing certain activities than we’d care to admit.
Normally, there wouldn’t be an easy way to examine your time sinks easily in order to fix them, but XDA Forum Member zoharby recently released an application that lets you do exactly this. Called LifeStats, this automatic journal essentially records every place you go and generates a daily journal of your activity. This lets you keep track of where you go, how long you’re there, and even how long it takes you to get there, so that you can best optimize your time. Once the data has been gathered, you are able to view the results graphically in the app, with various filters for time. You can enter each individual event, see its location with Google Street View, and more.
If you’re interested in keeping tabs on what you are up to at all times, head over to the Life Stats application thread to get started
