Diary App

A flexible tool to conduct qualitative and quantitative longitudinal diary, log and survey research.

Support for smartphones (iOS & Android), tablets, and computer browsers.


Background

Increasingly, researchers in the behavioral and social sciences are looking for longitudinal data. Longitudinal data provides to opportunity to answer a lot of questions about inter- and intra-individual changes, developments and processess :) Also, top-tier journals tend to desk reject any cross-sectional research :(

Having several ideas about how to collect longitudinal data myself--for a project on work-related creativity processess--I decided to build my own data collection tool, for now simply coined 'Diary App'. The tool can be used to conduct (self-report) qualitative and quantitative longitudinal diary, log and survey research.

On this page (heavily under construction), I want to give a sneak peek. A paper (manuscript) is in preparation and a better website providing the technical background and specific features is underway. If you are interested in the tool, drop me a note.

Current features (beta 1.0.31)

The tool is currently in beta-testing on both Apple's iOS (iPhones) and Google's Android.
