Daytum & Nick Felton Launch New Self-Tracking App
Data visualization aficionados will now have mobile access to their personal data tracking services.
Featured previously on PSFK, Daytum is a web service that allows people to track and share their personal behavior. Daytum’s new iPhone app offers their personal data tracking service in mobile form – allowing data visualization aficionados to track miles logged against personal objectives, or purely for increased personal understanding and amusement. The app is available in either a free format, or at a $4/month subscription for deeper analysis.
Some of the key features of the apps include:
- Full integration with Daytum’s site, allowing for in tandem or stand-alone use
- Existing Daytum users can import all past data
- Data graphing & visualization (what Daytum is best known for)
- Swipe actions allow you to access common functions like edit, delete and re-add
- Favorite-ing of item and category charts for quick reference
Nicholas Felton, founder of Daytum (and PSFK CONFERENCE NYC speaker) told us:
With each upgrade to Daytum, we have strived to make entry faster and available in more places. We believe that this is the best interface yet.
The app allows you to work offline, manage multiple accounts and visualizes your entries, while synchronizing with the curated panels our users can create on the website.
It makes instinctive sense that Daytum and Felton would launch the personal data tracking service in mobile format, for increased accessibility to this useful personal data. The choice of launch date on the first business day of the new year should also cement in users’ minds the relevance that this tool bears for them in tracking their progress against personal objectives (and new year’s resolutions) like increasing physical activity, losing weight, or even traveling more.
