HOW DOES SAGA WORK?
Saga uses the sensors on your phone to determine your current location, then stores that location and the duration of your visit, creating a rich lifelog of your activities.
Over time, Saga will get to know you, and offer feedback about your unique routines and traits. Saga gets smarter every time you confirm your location, and your personal personal patterns begin to emerge. The smarter Saga gets, the more meaningful your lifelog can be.
HOW DO I USE SAGA?
After install, Saga will do the rest and automatically start lifelogging your story. Visit your Me screen to set up your social sharing permissions.
You can enrich your lifelog with photos, personalized notes, videos, and data from your other favorite services (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Runkeeper, BodyMedia, Withings, Fitbit, Tripit, and Foursquare). It’s the fun and easy way to build your lifelog and gain self-knowledge, and the best way to share your authentic self with your followers.
EXPLORE THE ART AND SCIENCE OF YOU.
Lifelogging is the best way to understand where to start when you want to live better. As you lifelog, Saga will surface trends data and visuals infographs to help you learn more yourself, and get more out of life.
* Track your time in transit, at work, and everywhere you go, and see how you stack up against other users
* Understand your how you spend your time and where you go with personal lifelog analytics

* Share the most honest version of your life story with the people you care about
After using Saga for a while, you will be assigned unique traits, based on patterns in your behavior. These paint a picture of what makes you uniquely you.
We all lifelog for different reasons. Some people like to capture every moment of their lives, and add notes and photos to look back on later. Many lifeloggers do it to measure something specific, like how many miles they travel per week. Lifelogging can be a tool for self-improvement. Those who track themselves have been shown to have more success at reaching goals, like losing weight. Some people even lifelog to share their adventures with their friends and family. Lifelogging is best with friends. Set up social sharing to discover social lifelogging. Start lifelogging and discover what Saga can offer you.

Good app, but drains battery
The app tracks you and shows you a timeline of where you went and graphs your activity. It has connections to a bunch of other apps and social media networks.
I eventually uninstalled it because it's constant monitoring drained my battery even faster, my foursquare checkins weren't showing up in my saga timeline, and the thought of a company having all that data in one service instead of many made me uncomfortable.
If you do like a timeline of your life, it's still a good app.
Latest release buggy
This is an application that has potential. However, I am hesitant to endorse it. The latest revision crashes all the time. This is on the latest hardware as well the iPhone 5s.
Latest update crashes constantly
Until this version I was enjoying Saga...but this version is virtually unusable. Once it's fixed and tested properly, I'm sure I'll go back to 5 stars.
