You can connect the app to your Facebook page to collect journal data. The app does not post to your Facebook page, but it does mine your entries for keep words and possible reminders to enter your mood rating.
You can sync the data you input with multiple devices and the app’s website. Almost all the the websites resources are set in the UK. Keep this in mind if you ever need urgent help, because all their links to help are in the UK. The real advantage to the website is the ability to print out your results so that you can show them to your doctor or therapist. Conveying what you’ve been feeling can be difficult during an appointment, especially because your mood is likely different at that time and setting. Tracking info can help show how often mood swings or types of moods occur. There are also well being tips, and you have the option to share your own. This is a feature that is only on the website unfortunately; and although the mobile version is very functional, it would have been nice to see it integrated more fluidly into the app itself.
- Clearly understandable tracking.
- Printable summary available.
- Can use on multiple devices without interruption.
- Allows for multiple tracking points per day.
- No ads and completely free.
- Help resources are limited to one region.
- While it tracks the mood well, it doesn’t make it easy to link what is causing the mood like other apps that track multiple things.
- No way to set reminders manually.
- No way to lock the app to ensure it stays private.
Over all really basic app for no fuss tracking.
