Ratings and Reviews
More features please
Title may be misleading, but I feel like if two new features were added, it would do so much for this app - 1. Widgets 2. Shortcuts support.
Honestly, Shortcuts support alone would do a lot for this app. There are lots of other life-tracker kinds of apps and some I use to track certain activities or events, but most try to guide the user too much and aren’t as customizable as Reporter. That being said, if I could create Shortcuts that integrate with Reporter (to create reports for me) by automatically pulling data from other apps into the reports that I log, or if I could integrate Reporter-focused Shortcuts into my Wind Down routine, that would be HUGE!!!
Please consider adding Shortcuts actions for this app
Uninteresting - Needs work
The concept is great—to gather various data and look for trends—but most of the analysis part is basically meaningless.
First of all, I’d want to be able to set up groups of questions to be asked at specific times of day...not randomly and not just for wake/day/sleep. For instance, I would want:
9am: How did you sleep? What did you dream?
1:00pm: Did you have a healthy lunch? Whom did you have lunch with? (Using my contacts as possible names.) Where? (It would be nice if it suggested places I was over the last few hours.)
5:00pm: How was your work day?
9:00pm: Did you have a healthy dinner? Did you workout today? What friends did you see today?
These could also serve as a Reminder app as well.
THEN, once you have this data along with data collected by the phone (e.g. where I was, how many miles I traveled, any new contacts added, number of calendar entries, day of week, month, number of pictures taken, etc), I’d like to see insights like:
- You travel 30% more on Tuesdays than on other days.
- You took 80% of your pictures away from home last month.
- You travel 235 miles in an average week.
- You traveled 40% less this month than last month.
- You exercise more often on Saturday than any other day of the week.
- You eat out on 100% of Friday lunches.
- You see Bob Smith on 30% of weekdays.
I love this app. I’ve been using it consistently since 2014 so I have some great data and can see some interesting trends in my life. I would say this is a great app but I feel it’s potential isn’t fully realized. With light sensors on the phone I feel this is a metric I could track like I do sound and altitude. I would love the ability to better visualize the data. I can cut it by time but cannot see one year compared to the next so easily.
Really good at what it does but needs a bit more to be truly great.
