Kemba is a journal that not only helps you keep track of your thoughts, but it also helps you keep them organized! People that journal write about all kinds of things, they write about their experiences as mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and as participants in all kinds of activities and hobbies. What if there was a way to keep track of how much time you spend writing about different parts of your life? Well with Kemba (a sort of acronym for “KEep Me BAlanced”) you can do that and more with an easy to use interface on your mobile device!
The first thing you’ll need to do when you open up Kemba for the first time is set up your “roles.” These are the different aspects of your life that you want to post about and keep track of. You can have anywhere from just a couple of broad ones, or you can choose to really micro-manage things down into up to 14 different categories, each with it’s own unique color code.
Once you get your roles set up you’re ready to start journaling! To write a new post you just touch the “New” tab at the bottom of the screen. You’ll need enter a title for your post and it will automatically track when you start and end your post to figure out how much time you spend on it.
Once you’ve finished a post you can add up to 4 images to your post. Unfortunately, you can’t just snap pictures from directly within the app. This is not a huge deal, but being a journal app it would be nice to have a way to just snap a quick picture to add to your post. Once you have your post finished you’ll need to enter in which “role” your post is most closely related to and then touch the “Save” button in the upper right corner of the screen.
Over time and as you accumulate more posts Kemba’s graphs will get more accurate. The idea is that with time you’ll find out where your true priorities lie. While you may want to think that you spend the most time on certain activities, you may find your life completely dominated by some of the more trivial things in your life! The graphs break down not only how many posts you create for each “Role,” but also how much time you spend writing them.
While I’ve never been a big “journaler” myself, this app manages to take a fresh approach that uses journaling to help set your priorities. While the app is free to try out, if you really want to get the most out of this app you’ll probably want to spring for the full version which can be bought via in-app purchase. While this may seem a little pricey, if you really want this app to be a help in setting your priorities, $4.99 is hardly going to break the bank. So what are you waiting for?
