Expereal was founded in 2011 by Jonathan Cohen, hoping to make a positive impact on people's lives and the world. If, in an outlier event, it makes a few billion dollars, that would be just fine with him too.
What's New in Version 3.0
-Data export to CSV file
-Photo Browse (if taking photos with ratings)
-Optimized for iPhone 5 screen dimensions
-Updated Facebook SDK
-Faster response time
Many users, especially those in the quantified self community, have asked for the ability to export their data, so in the menu, we have included a button 'Data Export'. Upon tapping, you must enter in an email address to which you would like your CSV file sent. The CSV can then be downloaded and opened with a database program like Excel or Google Docs.
The CSV file includes each individual rating with the following information (if such a datum was entered):
-Up to 5 tags (Tag 1, Tag 2, Tag 3, etc.)
-Up to 5 people (Person 1, Person 2, Person 3, etc.)
-Link to associated photo
I don't mind the fb login
I've always wanted an app that would keep track of my highs and lows of the days as it comes, so this definitely topped my list of most used app. It gives you a nice snapshot of what went on in the day and helps you sort of realize a trend on when you hit a low spot for instance. I don't mind the fb login; after all, it made it clear that nothing would be posted unless you tell it to do so. I almost wish my fb friends use this app because my "friends" section is constantly set to nil.
The FB part isn't really a big deal to me since I use it nearly everyday. However, I DO NOT share any of my data on FB(seems a bit...needy to me.)
I've used the app for abt a year now & it's pretty good. My only dislikes are; inability to go back and put in mood info for earlier in the day/week/month and ratings get averaged- can't do more than one numerical entry, when I had surgery it would have been helpful to have mood # as well as a pain #. I'm sure there are other reasons this would be useful but this was what I experienced.
Everyone calm down about FB login
This is a fantastic app. All of the people who complain about the FB login clearly don't understand how that system works. People on FB can't see that you use this app by default. They can't see your moods, your data. So calm down and get your mind out of 2002: this is the modern Internet.
