Mood Tracker is a web-based program that is designed for users who want a place to keep track of their moods. Mood Tracker lets users rate their mood at any time of day, and it also provides space to write down daily events and medications. It displays these ratings on a graph that can help detect mood patterns and possible triggers. The graph can also be printed out to be brought along to doctor visits.
