Smoke Tracker Helps You Stop Smoking

Most people have some kind of addiction that they are trying to get rid of, but many times trying to go “cold turkey” simply doesn’t work, and with smoking it is even harder. On many instances, people will go back and try to remember when was the last time they had an “episode” or for how long they have been clean only to find out that they honestly can’t remember.  For the “cold turkey” cases, as well as for those who are trying to slowly quit smoking, xda member c0rnholio, developed an application a while back, called Smoke Tracker. This simple app will allow you to keep track of your cigarette intake with the simple push of a button. The software is even designed to let you know when you have had too many by literally coughing.

The app has not been updated for a few months, but it can be a very useful tool and has the ability to help many, many people.

Greetings,

I made a small program that helps me to keep an eye on how much cigarettes I smoke. It is made for people (like me) who want’s to reduce their tabaco consumption or stop smoking by reducing consumption over a period of time.
It’s simple to use, so you wont be bugged by heavy usability. Just run it and click “Got one…” whenever you smoke a cigarette. The overall daily rate is stored in a xml file for each day. By using the calendar navigator you can track how much you smoked on which day.
By setting up thresholds you can define audible alerts (2 .wav are included) and the colour of the counter gets red when the threshold exceeds.
Threshold 1 plays “cough.wav”, and Threshold 2 plays “smoke-that.wav”.

To Enable the “Smoke Advisor” (available since version 0.3) got to the settings page and enable it and set the average hours you smoke per day, so for example if you stand up at 08:00 in the morning and go to bed at 22:00 in the evening set the SA-Hours to 14. The “Smoke Advisor” works by calculating the time between each cigarette in corosponding to your daily target setting and the smoking hours. Now, if the timespan between you smoked the last cig and the moment you press “got one” is shorter than the calculated value you will get a warning which you can follow or ignore.

To get the monay tracker to work, just go to menu->settings and write down the price per cig. If the .(dot) does not work when you try to enter a price, try a , (comma) instead and does so vice versa.


You can follow the development of this in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
