Combining active and passive data collection makes for an interesting tool. Keeping this data private rather than providing a web service was a wonderful decision, both for privacy and the long term viability of the app.
Early versions were a little buggy (data loss being a major issue) but recent updates have addressed most bugs.
It's still too early to tell if Reporter will show me something important about my routines and habits, but I'm hopeful that it will.
I was really pumped about this app but it fell a little short, for example, when you make a report it has the stuff already filled in from the last report so you have to change the who thing. Also I think it would be better if it didn't ask you all the same questions, maybe mixing it up every once in a while. Other then that it's a good app.
Seems like it could be interesting, hard to figure out capabilities from the interface. Every time I open the app, it presents the question "How did you sleep today?", but there is no apparent way to answer it. No matter where I tap, it does nothing. I can bypass it, but it's a really annoying thing to have happen every time.
The questions are also rather boring with no variety. I just find myself ignoring all it's alerts and thing, "Oh, not you again. Just go away."
