MOOD SCALE WITH PICTURES!
The Pick-A-Mood scale has been tested and proved an easy and effective way for people to QUICKLY IDENTIFY MOODS.
EASY TO USE EVENTS
The app comes with over 80 built in events, that are color-coded and arranged by type. Start by tracking a few events, and expand as you get more familiar with the app. Additional events, like medications, work , social interactions may be useful for better understanding of mood disorders.
BETTER SLEEP TRACKER
Research has shown that SLEEP PLAYS A MAJOR ROLE IN DEPRESSION. Sleep disruptions both start and perpetuate manic episodes in bipolar patients. With sleep tracker, you get to see the quality of your sleep, visually represented on your mood history.
With Better Mood Tracker, you can TRACK EVENTS OVER NIGHT - mark your dreams, your partner snoring or the neighbors baby crying and keeping your awake half the night. The actigraph calculates how long it took you to fall asleep. Seeing real sleep onset times helps reduce anxiety about insomnia, and fall asleep faster.
BETTER MOOD HISTORY - with HOUR BY HOUR data
Mood history shows all data in your app with little colored icons. Each icon stands marks the time of an event in your life. Look at the sequence of icons to see how events in your life follow each other.
History shows up to 16 days x 24 hours of data on a single screen, enough to see long-term patterns in your life.
ROTATE history to landscape mode.
Pinch to ZOOM in/out on important data.
Use FILTER to see relevant data, like Medications and Sleep, or Food and Exercise.
TAP on a row to see day details.
You even learn about your CIRCADIAN RHYTHM and whether you are a day or night person.
Less typing, more visual. Rate your events on X-Y scale, like TASTE and portion SIZE for food.
Connect your events to Moods:
Does being alone make you more bored?
Does sleep make you feel more pleasant?
Remember how events in the past affected you, and you can predict how events in the future will.
It's simple. Over 20 days the app sends you 3 reminders a day in such a way that at the end you get a complete hour by hour history.
Reminders are scheduled with awakening and cancelled after bedtime.
Your data is COMPLETELY PRIVATE - it is not shared with anyone, or uploaded anywhere
You CAN DELETE all your data at any time
PASSCODE LOCK keeps unwanted eyes out.
PAY IF IT WORKS
The app is completely free. You get all the features for FREE. If the app works for you, CONSIDER DONATING, so I can keep this app AD FREE forever.
I expect that this app would be useful to people suffering from Bipolar Disorder, as well as other mood disorders, like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and various forms of depression. Get the app, collect data, check your health.

Proud to be the first reviewer!
This is the only mood/sleep/lifestyle tracker I've found that is at all workable for those with debilitating mental illness that needs to be recorded on a daily or hourly basis. The basics are easy to use when you get them explained, but it's no happy face/sad face BS, and if you're like me and love data, you can go much deeper. For the disabled (or abled!) Mentally Interesting, particularly those on the bipolar spectrum, I don't think you could find a better app. There's even a button for mixed episodes and the app is password-protected to avoid social stigma and secure your privacy. And ad free.
Get. This. App. Best free app I've ever used.
Great concept, crappy execution
This is the first app that I'm reviewing, and I had really high hopes for it. The thoughtfulness for the details of how events during your day can affect your moods is great... But it would only be better if it worked. It crashes half of the time (especially when you click the tools button), the sun button doesn't work, and when events overlap on the timeline, you can't click on the ones behind (especially if your events are tightly packed). So I will keep it on my phone, in hopes that the bugs get fixed. If they do, this would be a great app!
Works great! Minor bugs. Thoughtful design. Surprising features
It seems to still crash when u hit the tools button in events but the non-customized events are robust enough that this is minor. I am sending Alexander stone $ because this app is just what I needed.
