If you are like me, life speeds by and you cling for something like normalcy as work and everything else swirls.

Want a better grip on your daily activities, and how your habits are changing over time? Reporter, a new application for iOS, wants to help. Built by Nicholas Felton, a former Facebook designer, Reporter helps you craft a set of questions that pertain to your life — how much coffee you have had, are you working, did you go for a run, and for how long? — and graphs the results.

How do you keep it up, answering the questions on the regular, and preventing slippage in your check-ins? Reporter pings you throughout the day to follow your own survey, preventing gaps.
