Discover A Simple Way to Store & Share Memories

Discover A Simple Way to Store & Share Memories

Photos help in creating memories. Each day, we all take a number of photos so as to cherish these precious moments later. As a result, we all have plenty of pictures of our childhood, teenage years, graduation and so on. They are pictures with grandparents, friends and family. These pictures are sometimes a source of joy and sorrow both as within these photos there might be some people who have passed away.

As it is often said, time is a big healer. However, with time the memory of those people start to fade. While they remain in the heart, there could be some stories or pictures related to your loved ones, which you are not aware of. Thankfully, technology has given us a way to keep them with us in daily life by means of pictures and stories shared by others who’ve also been close to our loved ones.

Safe & Secure ways to Store Photos

There are apps which is dedicated to preserving the memories of your loved ones who are no longer with you. Such apps are interactive storytelling platform that lets you share the legacy of your loved one with messages, memories, smiles and photos – all for free. Qeepr is one of such app that helps you to do all these along with the ability to store unlimited photos and keep them safe or with you as long as you want.

Such an app gives you total control of who can view the memorial: it can be 100 percent private or 100 percent public. It’s completely up to you if you want to share the memorial with friends and family or if you want the profile to be public. The apps also offers many rich features to your memorials.

When using the Qeepr app, simply scanning a memorial such as a footstone, headstone, memorial bench, urn or other monument, you can pull up the online memorial of a loved one. The QFind technology scans and reads physical memorials to search for its corresponding online memorial. Using this feature, you can let your friends leave condolence messages or view pictures from phones without need of Googling or typing a URL.

Location

Memorials lets you geo tag the resting place of your loved ones and helps people discover monuments in confusing large cemeteries. Using GPS, the Mobile App uses the exact coordinates of a loved one’s resting place to easily guide friends and family to the right memorial.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
