Wakoopa officially shutdown – grab your data now

About 2 weeks ago, Wakoopa announced that they will be shutting down their social network soon & focusing on “Corporate Research”.

Unfortunately that day is here. Just received an email stating that as of today, you can grab an export of your data.

This is what they have to say about the export

The export is a CSV file containing the following columns: application name, subcategory, category, the number of seconds you’ve used the application in the hour, the hour you’ve used the application in, the date of the usage, the operating system and your user id.

For instance, say you have a line like this:Skype Messengers & Chat Internet 10 31/05/2012 20:00:00 win 12345

This would mean: the user with ID=12345 used the Windows version Skype (which is an Internet > Messengers & Chat software) for 10 seconds on 31st of May 2012 between 20:00 – 21:00.

Too bad Wakoopa’s no longer going to be around. Wakoopa would be the first software I’d install – even before installing the drivers. There was something analysing the data about what software you use for how long, and which software did I use the most in the background. Now, I’m not really sure what to do with the data. I don’t think Rescue Time supports importing Wakoopa data – it’d be sweet if they did. Maybe see if I can stuff if into ProcrastiTracker?

  2. I’ve heard of last.fm and use it once a while to check on what my friends are listening to. But I’ve never heard of Wakoopa, guess it was just another social networking site that couldn’t keep up with other big fish in the market.

    1. Srinivas, you might not have heard of wakoopa but it was quite popular. Also it wasn’t “just” a social networking site – heck it was nowhere close to being a social networking site. But it was one cool site to keep track of which sites/apps you spend your time on.

  3. Hi Guys,

    Rescue Time supports wakoopa imports.
    I am working on small tool to manually import data to rescue time, and wakoopa data format is the only supported import format in rescue time, but unfortunately I dont know the exact syntax of wakoopa data.

    Could you please send me piece of data which you have exported from your wakoopa account?

    It may be small subset of your data, but header and footer may be important. Of course you can delete any personal data, you e-mails, passwords and addresses.

    I will not use it in any commercial way. I am working on a small tool for my personal use.

    Here is my e-mail address: cezary.gerard44@gmail.com

    Thanks in advance :)
