Making it easier
chrono.me is a flexible app with many settings and customisation options and this can be daunting for some. Making it easy and accessible is an ongoing effort and as a part of that effort we partnered with UX Writing Hub. Their students reviewed key sections of the app, came up with lots of ideas and helped us test some of them. Big thanks to the students and everyone who volunteered to test the new suggestionhttps://chrono.me/blog
s. The new solutions will roll out gradually. These are the ones you’ll meet in our new version 6.3.
New sign in and onboarding
The sign-in screen now has additional information about the app’s offline mode. We have also added onboarding screens to the app to inform new users of the potential of the app and guide them through their first steps.
Some terms have been renamed, notably “parameter” which is now “tracker”, and “aggregation” which is now “combined data".
Simplifying complex screens
Complex screens like adding a tracker have been broken down into several simple and informative steps.
Visualising choice trackers
Choice trackers in chrono.me are visualised
as pie charts - from this version we have also added line charts for them so you can see how your selections change over time.
More configurations options
You have requested more options in the settings and we are delivering. Some of the additions include:
Option to disable trend arrows
Option to always hide entry hour in entries list
Day average is a new aggregation option that averages values across all period days
Simplified graph settings
Future versions will focus further on usability and making the app even easier. Let us know what you think about the changes we have made!
