Yousician should provide users with usage and practice time statistics.
If something is not measured, it cannot be improved - William Thomson, Irish Physicist So my suggestion is that yousician gives us acces to our statistics, total practice time, practice time by the path chosen, how long did we take to move up to another level, time spent on the challenges, on the missions. Anyway, I'm sure this would help plenty of users that would be able to improve their performance and invest their time on what's really the issue for us. Tks!
Hi everyone, and thank you for your feedback!
Yousician desktop (PC/Mac) version has just been updated and you can now see your playing time statistics by clicking on your username at the top left of the screen.
This new feature will also be available on mobile soon! Should you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with our support team by following the link below:
I like Bens suggestion of showing daily time similar to stars. I can get 60 stars in a few minutes with some songs and have clocked up what is fast approaching 500 hours of play time. I have no idea how much is spent each day and would find it a more useful tool for setting goals than stars.
In the daily goal tab of the home screen, I can see the number of stars I was awarded for each day. Is there a way to get the amount of time I practiced for each day, too? I know there is the overall statistics mentioned above, but I'd really like daily statistics too.
Also, the last few days I was doing the "ear puzzles" exercises, but there is no activity displayed the daily goal chart. I can't remember if any stars were awarded. In the mission view, it shows a gold star at the top of the "ear puzzle" icon, but there is no tally of awarded/available stars. Maybe that is why it's not showing in the daily goal?
thx yousician. it was a very nice surprise when i clicked on my username and saw all those magical numbers!

I'm sure Yousician is collecting this information for their own usage. I'd love to see my stats, too.

One step more would be to show number of hours practiced per week relative to number of levels progressed, adding just a little more motivation to put the time in! Failing this, I want a daily timer so that I can see when I've put in my 20 minutes for the day.

Agreed. I did an email for my first week. Hopefully, I will keep getting an email each week telling me how I did the previous week. However, if I could see a history somewhere that would be even better.

That's a great way to make sure that you practice the best way possible and make sure that you don't forget to practice a set amount of time each and every day to become the best guitar player you can be tanks 4 the best idea I have heard
I agree. This is available in the iOS version. Maybe they'll make it for Laptops too. It would be nice to choose which one we want to send us notifications. That way, we don't get a repeat of the same message!
Would be wonderful to know how many hours I have practiced per day and to date
Very much agree; clocking up practice time is crucial and seeing the hours really helps when progress feels slow or backwards.

Agreed, I'm an aspiring guitar player but also a gamer and geek ;) stats certainly help identify areas that youre strong and indeed weak which would help me to choose which lessons to revisit and keep practising in order to improve. On the whole its a great piece of software anyway although my completionist nature means Im often on it too much!
Hey guys, while yousician doesn't buy my ideia, you can use this really ingenious App for Google Chrome, it's called Tracking Time. It's a business oriented app and you won't be using a lot of its features, but who said playing the guitar isn't serious business right?
If Yousician can get any better, it would be by following JanasBO ideas.
Yes please :-) I would love a stats tracker for Yousician :-)

Yes, please! Seeing these sort of statistics in video games is always immensely satisfying for me. Something about seeing the numbers go up makes me feel motivated and that's something that would benefit Yousician amazingly. Fantastic suggestion!
