Visualizing Mobile Phone Usage

Check out TODAY, a free downloadable application for Symbian phones that collects usage data and creates visualizations based on that information.

From the application designers/developers:

TODAY is a piece of generative design for mobile phones.

It’s an application that visualizes personal mobile communication. It sits on the periphery of the machine, monitoring our connectivity through the number and type of calls we receive, subtly displaying them back to us, in the form of a generative graphic. Here, the visual result is a figurative and seemingly abstract picture – the story of your day. Some days will be really colourful and wired, others quieter and more reflective, either way the resulting visuals will always be personal, unrepeatable and unique.
