Introduction

My Logs is an application which allows users to categorize information in a log. Users can create any number of logs to track information (e.g. ToDo, Work Activites, Medication, etc..). A log consists of log entries each of which contains a time stamp, log catergory, and log details. Log entries can also be assigned a rating to add additional significance (or priority) to the entry. Furthermore, log entries can be filtered by category, date, and rating in order to show only the entries of interest.
