Hey, Product Hunt! 👋 My name is Alexey, I'm a founder and a designer of Haptic app. Three years ago I decided to stop using Facebook. I've started to cut down the usage of all time-consuming apps and services in my life (thanks, Ryan, for the 'Hooked' book), so, obviously, I started with social media apps. After a few weeks, I almost got rid of the habit to constantly check my updates, but there was one thing I really missed. For years, I've been using Facebook to log my life. Trips, travels, flights, new places, life events, parties and etc. You know, good old days. Around that moment, Haptic idea was born. Haptic is a safe and private place to keep memories and track repetitive actions. It's something in between a private journal and a fitness tracker. Haptic helps to log anything that can be counted — from glasses of water to a number of music albums, games, flights, and whatever you feel is important to keep track of. Haptic is fully private, information lives only on your iPhone and your iOS backup. No other external servers, you don't even need the Internet connection to use it (though, it is required if you want to add a music album or a podcast because Haptic will add a cover to your post). With time, Haptic will provide some statistics and insights, based on your actions. See, how many cups of coffee you've drunk last year, or last month, or last week, and if the number of workouts is higher than the number of parties, you've visited. Let me know your thoughts, questions, or ideas! Any feedback is very appreciated! Alexey

Excellent landing page, @sekachov. I'm curious how you personally use the app. What do you track?

@rrhoover hey, thanks, Ryan! my daily use case is to track my smoking habit (I'm trying to quit smoking, or at least limit the number of cigarettes) and coffee (almost the same reason). less frequent things that I'm tracking are flights, music albums, new countries and a few relationship related categories.

I might have used the app if it was on an Apple Watch. Do you have this in mind?

@ivan_achille thanks, Ivan. we're working on that. combining the concept of fully owned and controlled data with some kind of social model — is our next big challenge.

Really clean, well done. Do you think that potentially implementing iCloud Sync for the convenience of allowing users to use their data across their other and new devices is still in line with your privacy focus?
