Would you like to have a multi-sensory experience of your life?

If so, Storica is your ultimate documenting and recollecting tool for lifelogging purposes!

You can find scenarios for lifelogging on our website, e.g., Storica as a travel diary, for quantified self purposes or better understanding your work routine. For this, Storica processes and augments information, humanising the lifelogging measurements through multimedia stories of your life.

You can examine, annotate and recall your experiences through a simple calendar-based user interface from which you can choose various visualisations:

1. Digital stories: Storica assembles meaningful events, defined through activities such as calls made/received, SMS messaging, IMs, or annotations made through our widgets, and creates a digital story with configurable backgrounds. You can define your own locations, based on geo-information, WiFi or BT data.

2. Maps: Storica provides tracks of your recordings with flyover maps. You can see what happened at each recording location, either in abstracted icon/text form or through detailed timelines, tag clouds etc.

3. Gallery: Storica shows the pictures you took during recording in a context-enriched gallery.

4. Graphs: If curious about the information recorded, you can view it through detailed visualisations, e.g., timelines and word clouds.

To each day, you can add text or audio annotations for better recollection. You can also share your experiences via your favourite social media. The visualisations are tailored to specific purposes through selecting a particular diary mode in the main application drawer.

    First of all, I think the idea of having something that grabs info from all your device sensors and makes it easily available to you is brilliant. I'm glad I don't have to rely on some venture-funded startup to give me access to my own data! However, there seems to have been a bit of a regression with this latest version. My use case is storing event annotations along with device sensors, then tr

    Without doubt, the best and most comprehensive life monitoring app I have ever used. The visualisations are excellent and genuinely exciting to look at.

    Storica let's you visualize and re-experience memories as were recorded by the AIRS software. No data are leaked! It's worth the money to watch, via lots of visualisations, where you were, what you've been doing..good work!
