Which tracking app do you recommend to track... everything?

Hi there,
I am new to the QS Movement Community, but familiar with tracking and the QS. Since following a course at the University of Eindhoven (the Netherlands) in March 2017 I am tracking my food and exercise using LifeSum, which I am satisfied with in general. However, I am not satisfied with the insights I gain and feel limited in what I can track. Do you have any recommendations for tracking apps that can track more variables (sleep, mood, etcetera) and give more insights? Paying is no problem if they are worth it, Android app only.

I searched through the old discussions, but only found answers of people using multiple apps. I would prefer one app to track it all, if this exists!
I considered Samsung Health, but felt unsure about food tracking, since this app has a smaller database for Dutch food.

Thank you for your time! :slight_smile:

If you are particular about what you want to track and how you want to track it (and what you want to do with the data), the odds of finding a single app that does everything exactly right is close to zero :slight_smile:

There are several good general-purpose tracking apps for manually logging simple things that don’t benefit from having their own app (e.g. if you want to track how often you sneeze), but they don’t have any built-in food databases or device integrations: Nomie, Trackthisforme, KeepTrack

You may want to check out “Way of Life”, http://wayoflifeapp.com/. Not sure if it’s available on Android. I found this interesting spreadsheet at Lifehacker that says, just fill out this daily form to help you diagnose the problem by analyzing how you think, act, and feel: https://lifehacker.com/5901651/fill-out-this-one-minute-form-every-day-and-find-out-why-your-life-sucks-or-doesnt

I have kind of taken a break on developing it, but you can use my “deluxe” voice calorie counter for Android to track lots of numeric stuff using a hashtag i.e. #weight (or if you use your voice say “measure weight”). It stores most of the info in one SQLITE database table that you can access and edit with other third party tools. The graphs still need a lot of work done on them and the UI needs to be more intuitive but I use it myself for tracking all sorts of health stuff.

Let me know if you would like to try it and I will put it on sale for free sometime soon.

Take a look at Follow app. Very customizable and simple. And it allows comparing values from multiple categories.

I recently started using https://exist.io/ , and it does what you describe. In fact, I found this post when I was searching for the same thing you’re looking for. Eventually I found the Exist app.

KeepTrack. I’ve been using an older version of this for years. Not sure how good the newest version is. The old version was perfect with its reminders and decent visualizations.
Memento Database. Powerful app for tracking basically anything. Even has direct sync with google sheets. The only feature I’d like is reminders for adding entries.

We are currently developing a beta currently that you might be interested in. We currently have about 350 people signed up to beta test, but feel free to sign up if your interested at: https://www.ontrac.app. You can also view our wire frame at https://projects.invisionapp.com/share/E8W415O6PSQ#/screens. Love to hear feedback. We should be done by ~July 1.

I still love the good old Excel spreadsheet because it provides maximum customisation options. However once I should make the effort to find out how to use google’s or amazon’s speech-to-text engines to record ad-hoc entries during the day directly via my mobile into an online spreadsheet.
