Nagoya Japan (April 20, 2011) - NEOREX, a Japanese cloud system developer, announced today that its first free iPhone app "MyStats" became officially available on the App Store. MyStats is a tool to record and analyze personal activities.
MyStats is a Self-Management tool. With MyStats, users can record and analyze how many hours they've spent on which activity. By simply touching the time range and touching an activity on the Activity List, users can record their activity. Records can be analyzed with a pie chart. Users can add any activities they want and create their own "Activity Set."
MyStats is available for the iPhone family, which means iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

<How MyStats Development Started and For Who?>
One sentence written by Peter F. Drucker led NEOREX to develop MyStats.
The first step toward executive effectiveness is therefore to record actual time use.
Peter F. Drucker, "Efficient Executive"
Kenji Komai, Executive Vice President of NEOREX, started time management with a pocketbook and spreadsheet software after reading this sentence. That became the beginning of MyStats development.
In the early phase of the development, the expected users of MyStats were business people because most of them have time management needs. However, in the middle of development, NEOREX noticed that the words "Lifelog" and "Lifehach" are becoming popular and more and more people are interested in recording their activities and making their lives better with ideas and tools. Therefore NEOREX thought that not only business people but also many non-business people would have interest in MyStats.
This is how the expected users of MyStats became "Everybody."
<Plans For Upgrades>
In addition to the time management function, a new function to record non-timed, daily activities and analyze them with line graphs is planned to be available in June. Following are some samples of the Daily Activity.
- Number of New Customer Visits
- Amount of Turnover
- Self-Grade for Personal Condition
- Is A Daily Habit Done or Not
