Mood Triggers is a symptom tracking app affiliated with Penn State University. Upon opening the app, users are asked to consent to have their symptom data used and analyzed in the Penn State research study. Users must complete this step to use the app. After registration is complete, users are prompted to answer five sets of questions related to their moods, stressors, and reactions to worry. After completing the questions, the app directs the user to the Mood Triggers Dashboard, which displays summary information of self-reported anxiety and depression, an optional sleep tracking feature, activity levels, heart rate, and local weather. The dashboard also includes a “results” feature, that shows the relationship between the users reported moods and questionnaire responses. After the user completes the question sets 10 (or more) times, the app generates a simple chart that details how the user’s moods and questionnaire responses are affected by the other information assessed by the app (e.g. weather, activity).
