WhenDidI is an event logger that allows users to track their activities

WhenDidI Full version allows users to add unlimited events.

WhenDidI is a really useful people for both organized people and scatterbrains. On one hand, organized people that use to write down the events they attended or other activities will have a handy and faster logger. On the other hand, chaotic scatterbrains, will have a tool to get into a new tracking mood with no efforts: no need to bring a notebook or agenda with you, all you need is on your Android device.

WhenDidI fulfill a need: the need to know when we did a specific action like haircut, gas tank filling or even last pet vet visit. Tracking yourself is the best way to be efficient and don't forget stuff. This app can help you with that, thanks to its simplicity and user-friendly interface.

There are some default categories like jogging, petrol, work lunch or cross trainer. However, you can add as many as you want. You're just two taps away from adding a new entry to that category. Select the category and "add" it. There's a category counter and a log of entries with date and details.

Besides categories you can also add measurements and events you've to attend. As you add new events a chart will be generated with your personal performance.

Fast and easy. No more excuse to put some order in your life.

Each event you enter belongs to a particular category. Manage your categories using the edit categories option in the sidebar. Categories can be defined to measure quantity (e.g. time, distance), or price, or can be just a simple counter.

    I've tried roughly 10 apps for life logging and event tracking. This is one is by far the best. It allows you to capture data in many different formats, and, more importantly, the way you visualise that data can also be varied according to the data in question. You're not stuck with weekly charts or graphs, but have daily, weekly or monthly available. Also crucial: it's super quick to actual

    This is a simple yet clever app which a great amount of flexibility. I'm using it to track a while variety of things that I do. The ui is basic and functional, lots of configurable attributes and it has backup and restore which is essential. I really like it.

    I am impressed to receive a reply to my previous comment within a few hours, promising to look into my suggestions for improvements. I am upping my review to 4* because of this and the fact that the user interface, while it still needs work, is much better tbf since the last update, since you can now go directly from the category editor to adding events by tapping a category. Good work guys :-)
