Daylio is an app designed to help users to record and track mood over time. When the user opens the app, it prompts the user to record their mood and current activities. For current activities, the app provides pre-programmed options and a space for free text. The home screen has five tabs: Entries, Stats, “+”, Calendar, and Settings. “Entries” lists all mood entries for the current month. “Stats” displays the user͛s monthly mood chart, mood count, any pattern of a mood associated with certain activities, etc. The plus sign prompts the user to complete a check-in of current mood and activities. The “Calendar” screen provides a color coded calendar to indicate the daily mood or other monthly patterns. “Settings” allows the user to set daily reminders to check-in with the app or to purchase premium and unlock additional features

Research on this App

There is evidence to support that rating mood and listing activities in a diary can raise awareness of how activities influence mood states (Beck et al. 1979). A study of adolescents found that those keeping their mood journals via smartphones had higher rates of compliance than those using a paper version (Matthews et al. 2008). Additionally, they found that the adolescents had a strong preference for using their smartphone. However, there are no RCTs of which we are aware about benefits from smartphone apps which provide mood tracking.
