Bit of an odd one but with a growing amount of my family passing away this year, reminded me I should start recording my/our lives especially with my memory.

Any apps that act as a life diary (I don't want to write daily journals about how someone was mean to me) where you can note and record major milestones, add pics and share with others?
Quoting myself to see if anyone might know of a solution.

Private instagram account?
Going to sound old but don't get how that's a solution :cry::o. Basically a diary of sorts to jot down small and significant events in my life but none of the diary apps seem the right fit. The sharing part isn't important, more the ability to export the information easily.

LOL I thought you meant some feature I was unaware of. Instagram isn't what I'm after, have started playing around with something called Time Jot. It seems alright.

I'd had an idea to make a calendar website/app that linked across to a (private) YouTube account. You do video journals whenever you feel like it (unlisted so others don't see them) and add them on to a calendar on the website. The site can show you 'this day last year' and things like that too... Would be quite easy to add text and 'life events' and birthdays and such. Never got round to doing anything with the idea though.

I'll be honest, I use FB memories and Google Photos for this, most mornings I'll check them, but mainly because they document my 11 year old's life and it's nice to see things I'd forgotten we did.

Can anyone recommend an app for making lists, please? I know there are millions to choose from, but I'm specifically looking for one that will allow me to create a master list and then easily generate smaller lists from that. Any ideas?

Random question, hope someone can help.

Is there an app that auto launches an APP and start up, cant close it unless have an admin code etc and just always runs?

Customer doesnt want his employers closing the work app for non work stuff.

Cheers.

As I'm sure many others are, January is a 'lose a bit of weight' month for me and some family members. I always hear about MKBHD trying to complete his circle as his buddies are trying to do the same. (As in, hit steps target)

Is there anything out there for Android that will let me and family members 'compete' on steps or Heart Points?

I've found Stridekick, but would prefer if it could use Heart Points as my main exercise is cycling.

Tasker? But some functions are really technical, you'll find some good videos on YouTube.

All of a sudden my browsing history has disappeared on Chrome. Anyone had this issue or know how to resolve it?
