Great app, I find more and more uses every day!

I really love this app. It’s great for keeping track of anything from how many times I’ve dropped my vape to how long it’s been since I shaved. It has a lot of information in every “occurrence”, or time you say you did something. It tells you the number of occurrences, how long it’s been since the last one, and if you scroll way down to a previous occurrence it will tell you how long it was between that one and the most recent. You can even add notes to an occurrence and set an alarm to alert you when it’s been a specified time since an occurrence. Overall an amazing and useful app, well with the $3.

Help for the Scatterbrained

Thanks to Inattentive ADHD, I often get lost in thought and my brain doesn’t always do a good job of remembering when I last watered the plants—or sometimes when I last ate a meal. Fast paced modern life doesn’t help either.

This tool helps by showing at a glance if I’ve been ignoring something. The saved history is also very useful if you’re trying to increase (exercise) or decrease (ice cream) how often you do something. Many thanks to the developer(s) for making something so useful! It seems like I’m constantly finding new uses for this tool.

One of my fav apps - use it to track many diff things

I love the most recent additions of Categories, so I don't have to resort to emojis as part of event name anymore. Swiping left now gives you option to add details to the occurrence rather than trying to delete the event. Never had problems with crashes or data loss. I use it to track meds, health, visits with friends (life gets busy and this keeps me from going months between visits) and a lot more. Noticed iCloud sync added as well. This is much better than occasionally remember to export to CSV.
