Chronicles iOS App Review

Time. We all have the same amount in a day, yet some appear to have more in a day. It's all about how you manage it. How do you really spend your time? Have you ever though about how long you spend driving around each day? Or how long your children spend watching TV? So much can be learned from watching how we spend our time! 
Chronicles is a new iOS app that is a Stopwatch and Timer, and then stores the times recorded to it’s own in-built Calendar.

The Basics 
The concept is simple. What good is a timer is you are not able to track the data? Chronicles allows you to set up profiles for different people and activities and operate either a stop watch or a timer. It then saves your activities for viewing later on the built in calendar or in the Chronicle. There are different alarms available, including a silent alarm. 

We have 5 children, and there are many times they all want to play with or on something. I find it is very hard to set time limits and enforce them. I get busy, they don't watch the clock, and before you know it, someone is complaining that their brother got it longer. The favourite function saves me the hassle of setting a timer manually each time. This is also great during tests we administer while home schooling. 

Why You Will Love It
  • Easy to set up and use
  • The calendar can be exported to a CSV file for further analysis
  • Endless uses! Parents can use Chronicles to see how long children are watching TV, or playing video games over a week, or set limits for activities.  
The more I use Chronicles, the more uses I can think of! Use it to time your babies naps, and then trend them, use it to time how long you read each day, and try to increase it, the possibilites are truly endless. 

Buy It
Chronicles is available at the App store for $1.99.

There is a free version available with banners and less features so you can try it your self! 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
