Saga – The Essential Lifelogging App

I have always had a desire to remember where I have been and what I have been doing. As you might imagine, my iPhone has made this even easier to do and also able to capture much more information. I have tried out a variety of apps for my phone, including Latitude, Foursquare and more, but Saga is looking to be the latest, and best app for capturing as much about my life as possible.

Battery life is often a concern when using any location based app, but Saga seems to have limited the burden on the battery by using other sensors in the iPhone to let it know when it needs to turn on the GPS system and locate you.

Saga allows me to confirm when I am at a particular place, notes my travel time between locations and also integrates my Facebook and Twitter posts in each day's journal.

Track how much time you spend in transit, at work, or at recurring activities, and compare yourself to other users.
Understand your activity and what types of places you visit most, outside of your home and work.
Optimize your commute time, depending on what time you leave.

Are you a power user? If yes, over time will Saga will start to assign traits based on patterns detected in your behavior. Traits are rewards that Saga gives you for being a unique snowflake.

Go forth, be awesome."
