Moodistory is a mood tracking app designed for users interested in seeing how their moods change over time, and to help with managing symptoms of various mood disorders. Upon opening the app, Moodistory asks the user to rate how they are feeling using a sliding scale, and to select activities they have recently engaged in (e.g. drinks, food, fun, leisure, misc, occasion, and social). At the end of each mood entry, the user is prompted to type any additional notes. In the mood calendar, users can review their moods over a a weekly or monthly period and can download these logs as pdfs. More detailed analytics show the average mood for the year, the percentage of each mood, and how activities and days of the week correspond to mood.
