Something that I have been trying to get into more is logging daily activities, work related duties, photos and just general journaling. This has become far easier thanks to smartphones and there is no shortage of tools to make this possible. I have a few different ones that I use to accomplish specific tasks, but I'm always open to hear how other people go about handling their daily journaling.
- Daily Journal - I can't speak highly enough of DayOne and everything it puts at your fingertips. I wont be able to do the app justice, but over at the Sweet Setup they go in detail about why they feel it's the best journaling app (thesweetsetup.com/apps/the-very-best-journaling-lo...). Some of the cool features include Markdown support, reminders, tags, Foursquare support, weather support, use of the M7 processor and so much more. This was one of the driving reasons for me moving to iOS to be honest.
- Photos - This one is something I'm still figuring out. I originally went with Picturelife, and particularly loved the memories feature, but some issues with the speed of the service left me wanting more. Memories is honestly something I'm shocked Instagram hasn't implemented yet because it seems like the perfect feature to add to the service. If you have any suggestions here I'm all for them!
- Dining/Food - I use Foursquare a lot, but one of the things I find lacking is how well its history panel works so I combined it with IFTTT. When I check into places I have it log my check-ins to Dropbox and Evernote so if I ever want to search for a place I can do it more easily. Again, DayOne can do this, but I reserve that for only check-ins I want to better document with context.
- Activity - I was using my Pulse or Fitbit for a while but I never remembered to put them on so I tried out Moves and have been really enjoying it. While DayOne does record my steps and movement, I think Moves puts it all together in a better manner. For one it doesn't just record the number of steps, but if I walk to a place I can define what I walked to. It's really neat and so simple. I do use Strava for my actual workouts, but that is on a totally different plane than Moves.
What are some of the tools and apps you use to keep track of what you do through out the day? Also, do you put value on certain activities over others, for example is a daily journal more important than logging where you go get food?
