Life Cycle automatically keeps track of your time and presents your life sorted into slices. It shows you your daily activities, places you go, and who you spend time with. Life Cycle weekly journal provides personalized insights and clarity to your week passed. Start each week with a look back. Remember where you’ve been and vision where you’re going. Whether you’re just curious of how your time is spent or looking to make a change, Life Cycle is your daily companion, providing you with all the information and insights you need. What’s more - it uses only 1% of your phone’s battery while it seamlessly does the work. FREE FEATURES • Automatic - Life Cycle works in the background, recording and sorting what you do as you go about your daily business. • Less than 1% battery - Life Cycle uses less than 1% of your battery per day as it runs in the background. • Weekly journal - Weekly insight to activities, accompanied by photos tied to moments passed. • From a day to a year - view your life day by day, week by week, month by month or even year by year. • Apple Health - Fully integrated. Imports all activities, mindfulness and sleep data. • Friends - Connect with your friends on Facebook and see who you’re spending time with, what you’re doing and where. • Sleep Cycle connection - For accurate sleep data, connect with Sleep Cycle alarm clock through Apple Health. (Life Cycle only reads data from Health, it does not share any data. It reads Sleep Analysis and Steps data.) PREMIUM FEATURES • Connect to your Sleep Cycle account - If you have an online backup account with Sleep Cycle, Life Cycle will let you know how your daily habits affect your sleep quality score. • Backup - Keep your data safe with our backup system. Never worry about losing your Life Cycle logs again. • Graphs - Beyond the donuts, Life Cycle shows you what you do with your time in detailed graphs for deeper analysis. The visuals gives you insight to if you're spending your time on what’s most important to you. • Compare trends - see if you’re dropping in sleep hours, if you’re working too much or if you’ve taken longer walks this week. Compare trends over the weeks, months or years. BATTERY CONSUMPTION Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Life Cycle does not use the GPS in the background, but instead relies on cell tower and Wi-Fi locations. As a result, it consumes less than 1% of your battery per day, when the app runs in the background. REQUIREMENTS • Life Cycle needs to run in the background to be able to record your data. It only uses 1% of your battery per day when doing so. • You need to carry your phone with you, for Life Cycle to accurately record and interpret your activities. • Wi-Fi should be enabled on your phone for tracking to work. The optional Premium subscription costs $9.99 per year. Should you choose to subscribe to Life Cycle Premium, the purchase will be charged to your iTunes account. You can manage or cancel your auto-renewable subscription by entering the user settings in iTunes after the purchase. The subscription will be auto-renewed 24 hours before the subscription period ends, with the same kind of subscription you already bought, to the same price. It's not possible to abort the subscription during the time it's active. Terms of service: Privacy policy:



  • Not very precise and missing what one might expect from a life logging app.

    By nycbone
    For those that like to log their activities I would assume they want accuracy. The automation is great but the durations are regularly not correct for me. Perhaps because in a dense city, I'm not traveling far enough for this to be accurate? The activities are grouped too, so don't assume like I did, that the donut is a chronological circle of the day. I really wish I could ungroup like activities so a glance of the donut or an export of the image, wouldn't hide the different shopping experiences or event experiences for example. It's fairly useless outside of the app. The app is a bit of a silo, missing integrations with services like IFTTT. And there is no exporting in a simple readable format. The donut is a cool idea, but not the only thing trackers want and not reliable enough for me to include in my digital journal. It simply answers what activities you did, but not when, because of grouping. To find that out, you will tirelessly be tapping back and forth.
  • Amazing

    By Patienceforgreatness
    This app is something I missed out when I first got sleep cycle alarm which is something I love using. This keeps a detailed history of what you have been up to and the company is based in Sweden, so your data is secure. Looking back after a few days I caught some patterns of my own behavior and also started seeing trends; after a certain while I starting seeing how certain habits influence other habits. It also syncs with other your alarm cycle database with the premium subscription so you can see how your daily routines affect your sleep and can adjust accordingly
  • It gets better ... worth it to try

    By Keysha Kool
    I've been using this for a little over a month. When you start to use it, the first week or so, you will think that it's pointless because it is difficult to understand how it's working or how to use it. Granted, the app probably is just as disturbed about tracking my life as I was. The most frustrating thing to semi-learn is how to add activities into the donut and that you can't edit some auto tracked activities. There doesn't appear to be a good instruction manual, just a few support questions that the developers have answered. The trends function is helpful but some need an info box with an explanation. Once you begin to figure out how to log what you need to, it's pretty cool. I wish that it had an Apple Watch app that actually subs as a tracker in addition to your phone. For example, if I leave my phone home, the watch app could track and sync when I get back near phone. Right now the app just shows you the current donut, from what I can tell, and that's useless. I have synced it with Sleep Cycle and that works well. One cool thing it does is tell you when you make a change in your habitual hours. I don't like the idea that my entire life is in the cloud somewhere. I also cannot remember if I paid for this app once or if it's a subscription. I recall seeing $29.99 somewhere but not sure ... if it's 30 bucks a month that is ridiculous. I know I was already a premium user in sleep cycle which you have to be. All in all, if you get over your daily life activities likely being aggregated and sold and are a bit obsessive about time and productivity, it's worth a try. Prior to app, I thought I actually was putting in like 50 hours a week on one task and it turns out to be around 37. It also is good if you are a person who overcommits. After a month of seeing your time, you will actually realize how much you truly have to fit in x, y, or z based on your normal practices. I'll keep it unless it's too expensive. I hate hate hate subscription apps.
  • Really Awesome, Very Helpful for Me

    By AnnMarie1621
    I absolutely adore this app. I told a couple friends about it and they love it, too. Some people I’ve talked to think it’s creepy that I use an app that tracks my every move, but I’m the only one with access to this information and it doesn’t use my locations and activities to give me those “targeted ads” you see on Facebook and Google. I have a really bad memory, and for a long time it bothered me that I couldn’t remember what I did or where I went on a certain day. This app solves that problem for me and I honestly think it’s the most useful app I’ve ever had. Now I can easily access dates of Doctor’s appointments, weekend trips, events, and other things that are important for me to know. I like to add notes to describe what I did when I was at a certain location or doing a certain activity like hanging out with my friends - that way I can go back whenever I want and reminisce about a really fun night that I had, even if I’d forgotten about it.
  • App is fun! Has a few glitches!

    By LuvF1
    I can’t believe some people complain because there are to many options! Is it really that bad to see a lunch and a dinner option? So silly! Some people eat three meals a day and the object of the app is to show what you do when and where. So having just a food option would be inaccurate data! Some people just need to complain to hear themselves talk (insert rolling eyes)! The only issue I have is with locations and I am pretty sure it’s the phones inability to access the internet for proper GPS info. I also have a few weird occurrences where it said I was sleeping at 3am in my local grocery store! I am pretty sure that was a glitch. And it will show weird places as my home, like another grocery store and my parents house. So you should look into why the “Home” is allowed to change locations? It should be a designated setting to where other places can’t hijack my “home” setting in app. Hope I am explaining myself right. Otherwise it’s fun to look at a whole month and see what I have done! App is buggy, but I think a lot has to do with the internet.
  • Decent app, rating nags earn instant 1-star rating

    By Qohelet
    This is a good app, though there are some funky quirks in the UI. Rating nags earn it an instant 1 Star rating, I’d probably give it four otherwise.
  • Not worth it

    By WhyItunes?
    Was trying out the app to see if I should purchase. Waited a whole week to get everything loaded into the app, can now finally see what its been tracking but it hides all in depth info unless you have the $30 a year plan. I mean come on why would I buy this app if I can’t even see what it really does in a free trial. It’s also not very accurate, there are many free apps out there to track your own time that are free. Would not recommend this one.
  • Very cool

    By zeno01
    A great way to keep track of how you spend your time. I would recommend it to anyone.
  • Not accurate tracking steps

    By J.C. 60
    Life cycle and the Apple heart app are vastly different in counting steps taken during the day. Needs to be better coordinated.
  • Location Service no longer work

    By jmlara06
    with the latest update the app does not seem to track location anymore
