50 Apps To Track Everything In Your Life

Using just your mobile phone, you can track and analyse your sleep, sex life and procrastination.

One of the buzzwords noisily buzzing around the world of technology at the moment is the ‘quantified self’. Essentially, with the ever quickening advancement of modern technology, it’s possible to collect data about ourselves and our lives in just about everything we do. This means we are able to quantify, optimise and analyse our lives in depth, using technology and data as a resource to better ourselves.

The data-friendly experts among us are even quantifying their break-ups.

Although it can be a little bit daunting delving into the world of data, you can actually track just about everything in your life using just your mobile phone. That’s why I decided to compile a list of the 50 best apps to track your life, broken down into health, life, technology, travel and work and money apps, and create an infographic to shown them off in all their data-fuelled glory.

There’s something in there for everyone – and a couple of strange ones too. I mean, I’m sure there are people out there that want to track their sex life, need to track their sunscreen application, or need to uncover everything about their other half’s activities.

 

Health is actually one of the more intriguing sections. The competitive fitness market is covered by the likes of MapmyRun and My Fitness Pal, allowing you to keep up with your eating and exercise endeavours. Things get a little more interesting technology-wise, however, with the likes of Cardiograph and Sleepcycle; who’d have thought you could track your heart-rate with your smartphone’s camera, or use balance and vibration to judge how deep your sleep is throughout the night?

The important people in your life are also truly trackable with your mobile. Baby Connect allows you to log every nap, diaper change and bottle feed to help you understand your baby’s schedule, Life360 lets myou connect with your family (even using GPS) and mCouple lets you, well, track EVERYTHING about your other half. As in, all their phone calls and texts, and even their location history. That kind of everything.

Tracking your technology is a little less personal and slightly more analytical, which always useful. The likes of My Data Manager and Call Meter 3G let you look in depth at the way you’re using your various allowances on your mobile phone contract, getting into the nitty gritty of where and why your data allowance is disappearing and just how close you are to texting too much. You can even track the actual phone itself, without any previously installed software, using Plan B.
