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. It has a modern Holo interface with widget support, backup capabilities to your local SD card and Dropbox, and full range of functions to easily manage and analyse your events. You can even send your events list by email through the Androids share facility.

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

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

WhenDidI has a number of activities to help organise, manage, view and analyse your events, and are accessible from the main screen.

Each event you enter belongs to a particular category. You manage all your categoriesi here. Note, to edit a category long press on it. To view the events for a category click on it.

Manage and view the all the events you entered here. Events can be added, deleted and modified.

Gathers statistics for an event category. Shows daily, weekly, monthly averages and totals for quantities and cost. Note, long clicking on a row brings up more details about that particular period.

Shows 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.

This activity shows similar information to the statistics activity, but in graphical format. The latest events are shown first and you can scroll to older events.

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. Long press on quick link to delete or modify the description.

    A poorly designed interface makes it unnecessarily hard to add events. Newly created Quantity categories change to time when saved.
