Life journaling done right
Reporter is the best solution for Quantified Self life journaling I've tried, in fact it's probably one of the cleanest and best-looking apps I've seen. Reporter defines a random-sampling journaling workflow that is both flexible and well-thought out. It may not be perfect for everyone's needs but it certainly is consistent and easy to use.
Personally, I find the report schedule a little constraining. It's great for making sure you track data regularly, but not for adding intermittent single data points rather than a full report. I'm guessing that might be the reason why values from the previous report is kept as defaults when you manually submit a new one.
Things I'd hope to see: Quantity tracking (a la Daytum), single data point entry, an online support forum, option to link to RescueTime and other (stable) automatic tracking tools.
Give it some TIME!
At first i thought, God what have I spent my money on? The app was boring, it seemed useless and just a waste of time, but after almost a month of use, you really get used to the app and it can really give you some good information about your daily life! It does everything it says it does, and it does it well. Only thing i wish it had is more things it could track, for example heart rate measurements could be really useful. And more interface colors! And maybe the price is a bit steep. I think $1.99 or $2.99 are more reasonable. Anyways, if you think you'll use it daily, and really want to get some insight on specific parts of your life, you should buy the app. There's nothing quite like it!
Functionally fabulous, but feature lite
Functionally, this app is wonderfully easy to use and has a lot of helpful tidbits that make recording data easy. I would love to see more features though. Especially additional data visualization and crunching options. I would like to see recording sessions randomize which questions they ask so I can add many more data points without lengthening my reporting time. I would also like to see some better functionality at the lock screen, especially for yes/no questions.
