Daytum: An Online Counter To Count and Track the Things You Often Forget
By on February 5th, 2010

Want a simplest counter to keep track of things which you often forget? Check out Daytum a simple yet versatile web application which lets you use an online counter to keep track of just about anything. Daytum lets you count and track numbers which you often forget, it’s not a telephone log book anyway but can be quite useful at times.

Suppose you have a goal of writing 2 blog posts every day or may be running half a kilometer every morning. In such situations Daytum can be used to count your day to day activities and at the end of the month, you can see when you had missed the daily quota.

To get started with Daytum, sign up for an account and you will have a personal logbook to maintain (see example).

Features and Possibilities of Daytum

Display: There are many display formats available which you can use. You can display a simple counter for the current day or may be a pie chart from the last week. The application also has a bar graph feature so you can see the ups and downs of a particular task within a given time period.

daytum tasks

create-task-groupsCategories and managing multiple tasks: You can create separate modules for separate tasks and group similar modules together. This is useful because you may want to track a group of tasks and see the combined output. For example: You may have three tasks for your daily exercises and 2 weekly gym schedules. In that case, apart from managing all of them separately, you can create a single module and see the combined output at one place.

Use Daytum from your Mobile or Android: You do not always need a computer to update Daytum. You can use your Iphone or Android to update your Daytum account from m.daytum.com.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Daytum is one of a kind and very simple to use. But one downside found is the lack of export feature, you cannot move out data from your Daytum account and use it elsewhere. Thus, if you have set up lots of counters and need a better option to switch over, you are stuck.

Techie Buzz rating: 4/5 (very good).
