App Store Description
=== Day Plus Minus ===
WHY THIS APP:
The major goal of this App is to offer a simple method to record daily activities and thoughts of importance, and view records with ease. By reviewing records and reflecting on past observations, one may find patterns and clues for a better plan of action for tomorrow. This may equate to research with self, and reinforce awareness of what's happening everyday to possibly increase productivity and wellbeing.
This App may also be used for special purposes, such as keeping track of daily food types and usage, and exercises that may impact conditions like IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). One can easily view different categories of activities as a bar chart, list, or table of daily scores. This may help make adjustments based on recorded observations.
'Qi' is a traditional Chinese medicinal theory on the internal 'force' that sustains life. Its central hypothesis is that when Qi is focused 'within' and moving smoothly to deliver energy to the whole body, life is healthy and prospers; else health is sub-optimal. Thus, Qi is well qualified to represent the energy level of the day as well as the main goal of this App. This App developer has personally enjoyed using and revising this App for more than 6 months.
This App has been tested on an iPod Touch, 4-in, running on iOS 9.3.
WHAT DOES IT DO:
i) Take note of significant daily activities and thoughts, and view them easily based on categories;
ii) Preset buttons for adding activities and scores easily. Resettable buttons for viewing different activities conveniently;
iii) Find patterns in daily activities that may offer clues to better planning and wellness;
iv) Mindfully focus on intentions and not distractions. Reflect on the past, and plan for better actions tomorrow;
HOW TO USE IT:
i) Write down a short note of your significant activity during the day, and give it a score from 1 to 10; Use '(+)' button for things that have positive impact, and '(-)' button for things that have negative impact. Scores will be automatically recorded as positive or negative;
ii) Alternatively, use 11 'Preset' activities that you perform regularly, and then just use the '+' or '-' button to add a score. This saves time in typing on your device;
iii) The '@sum' button is used to write a short summary of thoughts and plans. If something is generally important, simply attach an asterisk to the notes. Buttons are reserved on the 'Records' page for notes with '@sum' or an asterisk (as 'hiLights’);
iv) The 'Record' page has 6 blue buttons to display lists of notes for different categories. Use the 'Search' button to search for anything in the record, and see its chart, short and long lists, and daily score table. There are also 12 resettable red buttons to view a bar chart on your favorite activities, and then view the list of notes or daily scores table through the options embedded in the 'Search' button.
This App has no connection to the Wi-Fi or the internet and all information is securely stored locally. There is no attempt to acquire any user information in any format. On some devices there may be a request for microphone usage when the App plays a very brief video of congratulations silently when the daily score reaches a certain point. However, this is an iOS function and the user should just refuse the request. There is no reason whatsoever for the microphone to be involved.
