5 ways to make your iPhone the ultimate lifelogging device with Instant!

iOS 10 has brought a bunch of new features for the iPhone. With Siri integrations, iMessage apps, lock screen widgets; apps are more powerful then ever. Instant for the iPhone & Apple Watch is great for both, those of you who are new to lifelogging, or even if you have been already tracking your health or fitness. Here are 5 ways Instant can make your iPhone into the ultimate lifelogging device.

1 Phone Usage/Addiction

Automatic Lifelogging App

Instant keeps track of how much time you are spending on your iPhone and how many times you check it. You can also set a daily limit to give you a reminder that you spent too much time on your phone. This information is quite useful for a Quantified Self; it gives a better picture of your digital activities.

2 Tracking places and time spent

It is often quite useful to lifelog places and time being spent their. Especially with places like work or home, at the end of the week Instant lets you know the amount of time spent their with a report graph. Location data is a great parameter to lifelog since it gives you a better understanding of your time.

3 Sleep

Automatically know how long you sleep, how many times you get up in between and more! One of my favourite features of Instant is that without entering any data or wearing a fitness tracker it lets me know about my sleep durations, wake up time and approximate sleep cycles. The sleep report also makes sure I know if I slept well enough.

4 Fitness & Travel time tracking

How much time do you spend walking, running, travelling or even cycling? Instant tracks all this and puts it up on your dashboard. The best part is, you can see your steps quantified into pizzas in the weekly report. ‘ You walked equivalent to 11 pizza slices this week 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕’- Instant 

Instant is also available for the Apple Watch!

5 Getting your personal coach

Chatbot Coach

The latest version of Instant comes with a Chatbot Coach like Siri. It gives you updates based on your tracked data. For example, ‘You have been spending more time on your phone since the last few days (35%), also you have been sleeping lesser (-20%)’. Instant Coach makes sure you have a healthier and more productive lifestyle. You can also ask it questions like ‘How much time did I walk last week’ or ‘How much time did I spend at work in May’.

Instant keeps all your data private only on your smartphone and makes use of the new iOS 10 features! You can connect it to your Apple Watch and Fitbit too.
