is there any way to have the list picker sync to the days? So that it will say 7 weeks ago, a month ago, a day ago, etc.
That sounds like something you would do in the List Picker's Before Picking event, using Clock1.Now() to feed your date formatting logic.
ok! and how exactly would I attach to clock to it?
see the documentation of the Clock component here http://ai2.appinventor.mit.edu/reference/components/sensors.html#Clock
and try the AddWeeks, AddMonths, AddDays method
protip: you also can add negative values...
do you mind showing code or a link to a tutorial for attaching the clock to it?
and how do I know it has logged overtime? as in, how do I know it was saved over hours, and days?
For long term logging, use TinyDB ...
I don't really know if I said this right but I'm trying to show the number of days past since you wrote the text you submit, how do u do that? Or is this how you do it because I don't really see a difference and it saying wrote a week ago etc. I don't mean to come off as rude:)
Example: "wrote a week ago" and it would show the text was written a week ago
I also wanted to note, the entries are being saved in the list picker!!
This Gallery app calculates the difference between two dates in days.
My log examples included a date in front of each entry, and the Clock can be used to get today's date.
