Oh, The Places You'll Go....

Does This Scare You A Little Bit?

Saga Is an App that Passively Records Your Travels
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If someone is around, but doesn't Instagram it, did it really fall? What if they don’t leave a cautionary tip at the “dangerous forest” location on Foursquare?

With Saga, such epistemological thought experiments will be irrelevant. The life-logging app for Android and iPhone passively tracks everything you do and syncs with your favorite apps to create a holistic story of your life, with no action required from you.

Walk into a restaurant, and Saga will take note. Spend an hour at the gym, and Saga will record your workout. It then syncs with apps like Runkeeper, FitBit, GoodReads,, Facebook, and many others to create a complete log (including some impressive graphs) of your travels.

Just watch out for those falling trees.

I do find this intriguing, but like other apps that automatically share our whereabouts and activities, this is simply something I don't care to engage in.

Maybe it's all a little too Big Brother for me (Hello, NSA?), or maybe I simply like a little mystery in life. But I don't care to share what I'm listening to, where I'm going, where I am, or even what I'm reading - unless I expressly choose to and in the way I choose to.

That said, I know a lot of people love these sort of apps!
