Hindsight is 20/20... and 5⭐️

Version 2.2.1 : Hallelujah! I came to say ‘looking forward to it...’ and found update already available. And it works!
Rest assured your hard work is appreciated.
Will update as necessary.

I’m back! I think...
I loved this app...then an ‘update’ duplicated all my events and it became a small nightmare so did not use for over a year, even after recent updates.

Now with search I saw a way out and lo-and-behold it worked and helped me, eventually, sort things out by deleting all duplicates.

Now the problem is my Apple Watch still won’t sync. I tried turning both devices on/off with no luck so deleted/reinstalled the Watch App but now it’s empty!
I like using the Watch wherever possible as it keeps me off the phone so this is still frustrating! Any advice?

Original review:
Only just discovered this app but I'm looking forward to the insights that may come from tracking my habits in Hindsight.
Hope the major update is still coming.

Developer Response ,

The latest update (2.2.1) should fix the Apple Watch sync issues.

Great app for ‘life loggers’

I’ve been using for a couple of years now. It’s quick and easy to record usage ‘stuff’ eg: new box of tea bags, cut the grass, new laptop etc etc and see the average duration between renewals. Would be good to be able to exclude specific occurrences from the average to prevent distortions. Developer is super quick to respond to queries and issues. I used to use Recur! but that app has not been maintained/developed so actively and, in my opinion, Hindsight has more of a future. Its frustrating when the app you use to log stuff is no longer there for you.

Would be better if...

What would be ideal is if the app allows creation of repeating events, allows you to set a frequency of each one, but records the actual frequency for reporting purposes. The tasks that are due to be done in say the next week, would be at the top of the list when viewed. The same list of tasks view would also show how many days it was since you last did that task. In fact without the frequency being defined, as soon as you did the task a second time, it would then know the frequency in order to float the task to the top of the list and remind you you need to do it again at the appropriate time - that would be even better and definitely worth 5 stars!!
