What's New

Version 2.3.4

Normally, this is where app developers would say "general bug fixes and improvements" right? We'll we've done those things but thought we'd tell you what those actually are :D We just like sharing like that!

So we've updated the entry detail screen to have a bit more modern code. Hopefully we did it in a way that looks the same but just feels a bit snappier!

We've also updated the watch app thanks to some of your suggestions (start with a neutral face you said, and we did).

Along with that, we completely rebuilt all the PDF export code to address many of the issues you all have told us about (thanks for letting us know!).

So that's the highlights of the "general bug fixes and updates".

Thanks so much for using Moodnotes and sharing with us what you love and how we can make it better. It really does mean a lot to us!

Editors’ Notes

We really value Moodnotes’ low-key approach to promoting positive thinking. Our part is easy: recording how we feel each day. Moodnotes responds with gentle encouragement, posing insightful questions and showing us patterns. It even points out possible thought traps we might’ve fallen into (like overgeneralizing or using emotional reasoning). With its guidance, we have a healthier understanding of what’s on our mind.

This app is amazing for all ages. I’ve had a hard time with therapist and psychologist for years and years of trying to find one that could help me. I finally found an amazing therapist who helps me tremendously. Only, she works far from where I live so it’s hard to see her as often as I’d like. I was skeptical about downloading this app, since it’s hard for me to find something/ someone that helps change my mindset. I saw the good reviews and downloaded it. After just one journal entry, I fell in love. The questions, and strategy the app uses to help flip any negativity is professional and truly works. It reminds me of how my therapist is able to help me so well. This app truly helps you for the better whether you have a mental illness (like me) or just want to be overall more positive and understandings to yourself and feelings, just be consistent with it! I’ve noticed a change in my mood and noticed I’ve been more positive and motivated at the end of the day. Even on those really bad days, it helps. It helps just to type out how you feel, and this app helps you recognize that and why. Much worth the purchase. I’m so happy someone made this app. To the developers: I hope you know you’re helping a lot of people with this app, it’s truly great, thank you.

Thank YOU for sharing your experience! The app was built with the intentions you've described perfectly :D



Wow! Great app! Great handy way to log and process feelings throughout the day, at ANYTIME.
If I start to feel something, I can pull out my phone, and start typing in MOODNOTES. As I type my feelings about a situation, I am able to document and process things at the same time, and I typically will write more than initially planned. This results in my being in a cleansed and more calm state, having identified optional ways of dealing with issues/feelings, and a plan of action.
I feel less “stuck”, nor like a victim, because I have identified options. I do not feel like I need to rush to be heard, because I have my feelings stored in a safe place and can recall them if and when I want, and take my time expressing myself, if and when I decide to do so.
It helps me decide how I will do so as well. MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, that’s all I need, and it is over. But if I need more, I can also return to the documented incident, and during an established time, I can tap into my experience, and identify my feelings, and let myself feel, til they are finished. I can end my feeling journey with a positive thought, like: “I am okay”, or “I am a capable and resilient person”. This is GREAT!!!
