Tap Log (Free Demo)
by: Tool and Die Co. • 40
THIS IS THE DEMO VERSION (MAX 30 LOG ENTRIES)
Keep a digital logbook with button taps. Create a well-formatted log entry in literally two seconds. A plethora of charting options allows you to explore your data. (DEMO VERSION AVAILABLE)
1. Choose what to log
Keep track of Weight, Exercise, Mood, Steps, Meals, Transportation, Baby Habits, or even use it to keep a simple diary or journal. Include quantities, ratings, or text notes. Create a button and you're ready to start collecting information!
2. Tap buttons to create timestamped log entries.
(see example screenshots) The buttons are set up in advance, so you don't waste time typing, and data is collected in a consistent manner. Tap Log is probably the fastest way to collect data on a handheld device.
3. Review the data.
Review log entries in a compact, well-formatted list, organized by category. Send the log as a simple e-mail message. Export CSV file to other apps (i.e. GDocs, DropBox) or to your computer to create reports, and make complex charts of your own. Tap Log has a selection Charts for users to explore their data: Histograms by time of day and day of week, Pie Charts by subcategory, and by the amount of time subcategories were the last category logged (a time-card pattern). Chart days, weeks, and months. Save favorite charts. Share charts via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc.
4. Fine-tune your data collection methods.
Use widgets to create log entries directly from the home screen. Easily edit buttons to make more categories (unlimited), create subcategories (limit 2), and add attributes you think would be helpful (i.e. rate each 'Restaurant' entry). Take advantage of your phone's features and log your GPS location with each entry.
