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.

    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

    I'll echo another reviewer saying this probably deserves more than 3 stars. I want to use it to replace KeepTrack Pro, which I've had for over a year & am not happy with. If you could add reminders for events, this app will be nearly perfect. That way, I could use it to track if/when I take medication in addition to all the other things I would like to track. If reminders are added, I'll most

    I've looked at many of these log apps but most don't have a widget. The widget on this is good, but please add the middle box (where the text is ) to Be a quick add without the need of entering the program. UPDATE. increased rating to 5 stars because the developer implemented my suggestion, just please add a toast confirmation when quick adding! Great developer, thanks!
