At present Reventer is still in early development. For those who would like to use it and give feedback, here is a quick tutorial to get you started.
Until you have created at least one event, the first screen you will get when you start Reventer will look like this:
Click on the “add event” button to create a new event. An event is anything that can happen, like getting a headache, traveling somewhere or measuring something like a payment.
Adding an event
After you’ve clicked on the “add event” button you will be presented with a screen where you have to provide 2 details about the event:
There are three types of events available at the moment:
along with some numerical value, like your temperature or blood pressure (this doesn’t all need to be medical, and I’ll hopefully come up with some better examples soon)
After entering the name, just press the button identifying which type of event you are creating.
Adding More Events
To add more events, press the menu button on your phone or device, which will give you the option to manage events:
Adding Event Instances
Event instances refer to whenever an event actually happens.
For timestamp events it is easy to add an event instance, just hit the big red + button next to the appropriate event. For our example using headaches, you would hit the + button every time you get a headache.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Because events are grouped by either hours or days you will only have a dot to begin with. As you add more event instances over time your graph will get more interesting.
For number events you will get a prompt to enter a value like below:
To record a duration event instance, just push the play button next to the event.
Once the event ends, you hit the stop button and the duration will be recorded in minutes.
Grouping Event Instances
This is where it gets interesting. Say you are keeping track of when you are getting headaches. It may be useful to get some idea of whether this is happening at certain times of day. This is where grouping comes in. To change what event instances are grouped by, just tap on the green graph on the main screen, and you will be presented with four options:
To export events wih all there instances you have two options. Either export to the SD Card(Export to CSV) or Export to any of your installed application on your Android device (send CSV).
Once exported you have all the details of every recorded event instance.
