Mood Watch

Mood Watch is an app that provides a tool for people concerned about their mental health. Users complete a brief survey every day in which they rate their mood, anxiety, and any other emotional states they desire. It also provides space for users to write down important notes about their day. The user’s ratings for the week are then combined and displayed to help the user make sense of their moods. This is designed to allow users to track their feelings over time, which can help to identify patterns and triggers. Mood Watch is intended to allow users (and their doctors) to make more-informed decisions about their mental health. It also can empower users to make healthier choices and better manage their daily lives. However, this app does not appear to have been revised for some time, and users should be cautious when using apps without security updates.
