TrackingAdvisor automatically tracks your everyday life, allowing you to know more about yourself from the places you visit.
TrackingAdvisor will show your daily walking activity and the places you visited. You will be able to review your day in an easy-to-read timeline and visualise the places you visited on an interactive map. Moreover, TrackingAdvisor will also tell what the places say about you, by automatically determining your interests and other information from your visits.
Note that TackingAdvisor has been developed as part of a non-commercial academic study conducted at University College London by the members of the Intelligent Social Systems Lab. We deeply care about privacy and keeping the participants’ anonymous throughout the study. To this end, we are putting all the necessary security measures in place to protect the participant’s collected data and assure that their data is only used for academic research purposes and will not be shared with other parties. The participants can freely decide to withdraw themselves from the study, with no negative consequence on them. All data will be collected and stored in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and the EU GDPR.
A note on battery –
Building on our extensive experience in designing location-based application, we have worked hard to make the location tracking algorithm extremely power efficient. We have implemented a low-power energy mode that turns on automatically when the low power setting is enabled. But, as with all apps of this type, please note that continued use of GPS running in the background might incur in an increased battery consumption.
This version brings better stability, as well as UI and performance enhancements. With this new version, we have provided better access to the map directly from the timeline. You can now see how you spend your day from the My Map tab. You can now see the places you visited directly from the About you tab in a heatmap. Finally, we tried our best to clarify and simplify the review process by providing a whole new design of the Reviews tab.
Ratings and Reviews
Presents data in a very interesting way! With this app I've been able to look back at my day and see what I've done. It's profile is super accurate, it figures out what you like so quickly. Definitely recommend joining this study, I think a lot of interesting things can come of it :)
There is a MASSIVE issue with this app, and that is that anyone can name a place on the map. This means that when I go to a friends house, the app will notice that I’m near a a house a couple doors down that another user has marked as, for example, ‘Kyle’s house’. Then my app will tell me I was at ‘Kyle’s house’. Since people don’t understand that they are naming their location publicly, sometimes they will name it with a description of what they did there, for example ‘Swimming at Kyle’s House.’ There is no way for other users to either remove or correct these place names.
Thank you for using this application and letting us know about this issue. I have looked into the issue you raised. The place that you mentioned is a place that has been extracted from Foursquare, the location service that matches your location with actual places. I have reported the non relevance of the place you mentioned to Foursquare.
The custom places that you have entered through the search are private and thus they are only seen by yourself and are not published on Foursquare.
Please, do let us know if you experience any additional issues.
