Loggr keeps it simple which comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. It's an app with the sole focus of giving its users somewhere to track various statistics. It's possible to set up any category that one could want, offering plenty of flexibility. That also means it lacks some very handy features, but it remains a useful starting point.
When I say one can add anything they want, that's very nearly entirely true. Categories can be added at the tap of the screen, with users able to enter anything they want. Want to track how many cups of coffee one consumes each day? Easily done here. Want to track calories or blood pressure? That's just as easily added too. That doesn't mean that Loggr doesn't have its restrictions or issues, but it is a great way to feel in control of the app.
Restrictions become noticeable gradually. For instance, it's not possible to tally up data. Say, if one wants to add up the calories across a day, one has to do it manually rather than simply expect Loggr to add everything together. It's not possible to include negative numbers either, or subtract anything, providing some restrictions on the data that can be used.
More practically, there's no passcode lock option, which restricts the privacy available to users. Also, content can't be backed-up anywhere and nor can the color of the app be changed from the (admittedly) quite attractive orange.
However, Loggr is still a useful tool. With flexibility in terms of categories, and also a selection of graphs demonstrating one's progress, it's got the foundations of a very handy app. It's not there yet, but as Loggr costs nothing to try it's worth using it - even if only for a few simple figures that need to be tracked. Hopefully in time this is an app that will turn into quite the essential tool for those wanting to log their lives.
