Moodtrack Diary is a tracking app that is designed for people who want to share or record their moods. Users are prompted to enter their mood and thoughts and rate that mood using a number from 1 to 5 (1 being worst and 5 being best). Users can post their mood privately or publicly (A one-time-fee is being charged for posting privately). Users can also interact with other users on a forum. They can read, comment, and give likes to others’ posts, and they can also follow and block other users. The app also provides resources, hotlines and links to online therapists.
