"Quantifying myself"

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

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.

Developer's original description available here
WhenDidI is a powerful fully configurable personnel events tracker, with widget support, alerts, backup capabilities to your local SD card and Dropbox, and a full range of functions to easily manage and analyse your events. You can even send your events list by email through Androids share facility.

Some examples on what you could set up with WhenDidI to track are

- How many pints of alcohol drank
- Cost of lunch per day
- When you last feed the baby
- Time spent at the gym

WhenDidI has a number of activities to help organise, manage, view and analyse your events, which include.

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.

All events can be fully managed, add, deleted, modified, and can be viewed in multiple ways.

Full statistics for an event category. Show daily, weekly, monthly averages and totals for quantities and cost.

Analyse summary information for an event category such as the cost and quantity averages, totals and the largest and smallest values. Days since you last did that event and the average time between events.

You can add and define new measurements here. These are used for events that collect quantity information. Note, that time is considered to be a quantity.

Quick links are short cuts to functions that you use often, such as adding an event, viewing the monthly list of a particular category. To add a quick link, click on the star icon on the top bar when you in the activity or view. It will be automatically added to the quick links list on the main screen.

    The lite version has a rather too limited event capacity. I realise it's to persuade you to upgrade, but i feel it would have been better to have limited functionality, rathet than simply not accepting anymore events.

    Only allows one parameter per event category. I want to add several parameters, with arbitrary measurements (e.g., price per gallon, amount paid, odometer reading, trip odometer). Thanks but I think I'll just have to keep looking or write my own.

    I'd quite like an option to "pre-fill" a saved event value, when selecting a quick link - i.e. currently the best it can do is "remember previous", but it would be great if I could create "event templates" under quick links that already contained a value - just to save some typing for certain common events... Also - I couldn't spot this anywhere, but for I'd quite like to see an obvious "elapsed t
