Life-tracking application for android

Hi, less­wrong.

I just finished my ap­pli­ca­tion for an­droid de­vices, LifeTrack­ing, which has been mo­ti­vated by the dis­cus­sions here; pri­mar­ily dis­cus­sions about akra­sia and mea­sur­ing/​track­ing your own ac­tions. I don’t want to make this sound like an ad­ver­tise­ment (the ap­pli­ca­tion is com­pletely free any­way), but I would re­ally re­ally like to get feed­back from you and hear your com­ments, crit­i­cism, and sug­ges­tions. If there are enough LessWrong-spe­cific fea­ture re­quests, I will make a sep­a­rate ap­pli­ca­tion just for that.

Here is a brief de­scrip­tion of the app:

LifeTrack­ing ap­pli­ca­tion al­lows you to track any value (like your weight or your less­wrong karma), as well as any time-con­sum­ing ac­tivi­ties (like sleep­ing, work­ing, read­ing Harry Pot­ter fan­fic, etc). You can see the data vi­su­ally, edit it, and an­a­lyze it.

The goal of the ap­pli­ca­tion is to help you know your­self and your sched­ule bet­ter. Hope­fully, when you graph var­i­ous as­pects of your life side-by-side you will come to a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of your­self. Also, this way you will not have to rely on your faulty mem­ory to re­mem­ber all that data.

You can down­load the app from the Mar­ket (link only works from An­droid de­vices) or down­load .apk di­rectly. Screen­shots: [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6].

And while we are on topic of mo­bile apps, what other ap­pli­ca­tions would you like to see made? (For ex­am­ple, an­other use­ful ap­pli­ca­tion would be “your per­sonal pre­dic­tion tracker”, where you en­ter var­i­ous short-term pre­dic­tions, your con­fi­dence in­ter­val, and then en­ter the ac­tual re­sult. You can clas­sify each pre­dic­tion and then see if you are over- or un­der-con­fi­dent in cer­tain ar­eas. (I re­mem­ber see­ing a web­site that does some­thing similar, but can’t find it now.))
