Being in the know is a good thing. Keeping up with events and knowing the trends is indeed helpful for making correct decisions. Yet, how would one be in the know with his personal trends and tendencies? Well, considering that smart phones have become quite similar to the concept of a PDA that we were seeing in movies and games some fifteen years ago, it's only common sense to track everything on that blocky plastic thing that we all carry around all day. Sapience can help you with that.
First off, the Set Goals section clearly exemplifies that Sapience is going to be used primarily by people who feel that they're abusing the digital part of their life Although both cannot be visible at once, there are two stats that you can set not to exceed, the number of times you check your device (i.e. unlock it) and the maximum amount of data you want to use during your online forays.
The interesting part of Sapience however is the following and recording aspect. Using GPS it tracks your movements and can turn out where you've been and for how long, just in case you forgot... or your significant other needs a second opinion. Sapience also tracks your phone call history and has a manifest that shows how much each app has run for the current day (hourly if needed) or during any month. Regarding GPS tracking, in the My Places section you can add in familiar names to locations so that the records are a bit more comprehensible to the regular CIA oper... I mean reader. Well, dev says that information is for your eyes only, so I guess its safe to assume that it is.

Sapience has a very professional look and works fairly well. I can't say more about performance since my phone is in a state of moral wear that makes me wonder how it can still run some modern apps. I know Android is not MacOS, so what gives?
