If you are obsessed with using technology to better understand yourself, here is an app called Instant 2.0 for you developed by Pune-based security consultant Shashwat Pradhan.
The app, now available on Android, tracks nearly everything you want to record, including phone usage, app usage, fitness activity and travelling.
The app is somewhat reminiscent of earlier apps like Moment and Checky that focused on recording how much time you spent using your smartphone, and allowed you to set limits on that behaviour.
The idea with the new app is to expand beyond analysing phone usage to cover more "contextual event tracking", TechCrunch reported.
The app keeps a tab on things like how much time you have spent in a meeting, how much time you spent driving or exercising and how much time you're on Facebook among other things.
The app has also been integrated with Google Fit, Google's health-tracking platform that allows Instant to pull in data from various connected fitness-tracking apps.
Pradhan is the founder of Emberify, a technology startup building mobile apps leveraging new age technologies- cloud, context and analytics.
