Pretty good, but definite problems
I downloaded about 10 mood tracking apps to try, and this one initially seemed to be the best fit for me. I like how you can track your mood along with activity level you can make multiple check-ins per day, and you can include other relevant information such as where you are, who you're with, what you're doing, and a note for anything else. However, at least twice I made check-ins and for some reason they were not saved. I don't know if it might have been because I was offline at the time or for some other reason, but it was enough for me not to want to use the app anymore. If I'm going to take the time to make a check-in, it is simply unacceptable for it not to be saved. In addition, I found another app that gives you the option to additionally choose from a list of emotions, and I found that really helped me more than just "OK" and "good". The only problem is that the other app does not allow multiple check-ins per day. As a result, I have decided to go with the other app and stop using In Flow for the time being, because it is not meeting my needs...but if I find out about a significant update that includes a list of emotions, I may come back. (Note: I used In Flow for about 2 weeks and made 21 check-ins before writing this review.)
Not really even just okay
Total disappointment. The pros: easy to check in, reminders. The cons: info recorded in checkins is limited to energetic/tired and great/awful with 7 options on each continuum. No way to record specific moods. You can take notes but can access them only in the calendar. The app provides a graph if you pay to upgrade which is pretty useless - you can look at mood, energy, or both but you can't tell what part of the day each point is from, alter the time frame (1 month) or see notes. So it might be helpful if you are trying to see change over time but the time had better not be longer than a month, and if you want to see your notes as to why you felt a way you will have to manually cross reference with the calendar. Oh, but also, THAT still won't tell you what time of day you checked in. The advice section cycles through a whopping 8 or so different suggestions for boosting your mood, which begs the question of why they bothered.
Overall, a nice idea executed with little attention to purpose or functionality. I wasted two bucks. Now I'm deleting and moving on. I suggest you not bother.
Excellent Interface, Could Use More Depth
As apps go, this one feels clean and easy to use, but it may be too simple for your needs, especially if you are hoping to create and download charts to share with your card provider.
On that merit alone, I would give this only a 3 star rating, but it seems that the developers have already started thinking in those terms, and it seems likely that subsequent releases will offer more features and higher functionality.
What I like most about this apps is that what it DOES offer is well organized and easy to use. For an app intended to assist people with emotional instabilities, I feel that this is a paramount trait, one which is missing from other apps I have tested. Someone who is depressed isn't likely to want to go through five screens of ambitious ratings and terms just to make an entry. That said, this app could stand to be a LITTLE more in-depth, but even as it stands, I like it better than most.
