Add this app to your lists
A digital logbook from button taps. Create a well-formatted log entry in literally two seconds. A limited set of charting options allows you to explore your data. (DEMO VERSION AVAILABLE)

1. What to log

Keep track of Weight, Exercise, Mood, Steps, Meals, Transportation, Baby Habits, or keep a simple diary or journal. Include quantities, ratings, or text notes. Create a button and start collecting information!

2. Tap buttons to create log entries with timestamps

(see example screen-caps) Set buttons in advance, eliminate time wasted typing and deciphering poorly formatted notes, the data is collected in a consistent manner. With home-screen widgets 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.

5. Transfer Data to a new phone. (Instructions Below)

WHY?
• Fast: Ditch the tiny keyboard!
• Organized: Avoid sifting through disorganized notes
• Consistent: Log a broad range of data consistently
• Flexible: record quantities, ratings, text notes
• Customizable: record exactly what you want to
• Exportable: Export to well-formatted CSV, or e-mail the log

FEATURED USE CASES:
• Business travelers, log and organize trip expenses, send report to a coworker as a simple e-mail message.
• Categorize your professional activities, ditch the bulky log book and create a comprehensive log of your accomplished tasks, modifying as you go.
• Tap Log as a Punch Card. Set up a category that contains a mutually exclusive set of subcategories covering all time (At Home, At Work, Driving, Misc.), and create a log entry when you embark on something new. When you chart the main category, you can find a pie-chart breakdown of how many hours each of your categories was the last category pressed! (great for tracking hours or projects at work, and a nice starting point for Quantified Self beginners)
• Log sporting events in real time (speed logging), reach logging rates upwards of 30 entries per minute.
• Create a simple text note in one button press. Create multiple buttons to categorize your text notes into 'Creative Thoughts', 'To Do List', etc.

    I love this app, very useful and simple to use once you personalize it. Read the help and its all gravy. I use it to track my physical health, blood sugar levels, etc and then print out what I want then give it to the doctor. Its a clean beautiful logg

    Very fast and functional, even on my older phone. A few UI quirks: when entering a text log item, the "Clear" button is yellow, but the "Log" button (which saves the item) is red. The red looks alarming so I keep habitually tapping Clear, nuking all my te

    I downloaded the demo version of the app, and after creating just one of my own trackers, immediately came back to the Play store and bought the full app. This is Exactly what I need to keep myself 'on track.' **Edit** Even better (if that's even possi

    I'm loving this app so far, but I feel that it could benefit from more features for a price of $4. What I would hope for would include (and I would love to be shown that this exists already): - Sync with DropBox - Quick-add widgets - Ability to edit data

    I started using this app in the last days to log my life. The versatility of how you can log anything makes it very easy to log many items in different ways. The buttons can be moved within one submenu, which makes it even easier to use. It's the app I h

    This app is exactly what I was looking for. I use it on a tablet at work to track how many pieces of pottery I paint per hour. I use it on my phone to track health issues - symptoms I am experiencing, what Meds I took etc. I also set up a category 'smokin
