The user-friendly app helps users understand the causes of changes in their mood
Spotted: Mental Health Awareness Month has seen the launch of a new mobile app that lets users track how they feel. The app, called ‘Mood – See How You Feel’, was designed and built in collaboration with Red & Co.
Mood allows users to track their daily mood through colour, with users selecting a shade of colour to represent their mood for the day. The lighter the mood, the lighter the shade.
The colourful visualisations make it easy to see how mood varies between days, weeks, and months. So, if the user is feeling down, they can look back and see when things started to change. And if they’re feeling good, they can see what they did that might have contributed to their improvement.
Gareth Dauncey, Mood’s founder, explains that, “Seeing the big picture brings self-awareness that can help us decide how to take control. The goal is for Mood to become the standard method for tracking and visualising how you feel.”
Mood is 100 per cent private and only accessible to the user, with the company explaining that it is unable to see, share, track, or sell users’ information.
The app is available for download in the App Store and Google Play for $0.99 (around € 0.93) per month. Moreover, for every subscription, Mood donates one copy of the app to an organization helping people with their mental well-being.
Other recent mental health apps spotted by Springwise include an app focused on the wellbeing of families, a mental health chatbot with Covid-specific support, and a speaker and app supporting the mental health of those living at home.
