Best Mood Tracker Apps

People choose to track their moods for a variety of reasons such as monitoring their mood or to identify external factors that may be influencing their mood. Mood-tracking tools can help you monitor how your mood varies and aid you in better understanding the stressors and triggers that can cause the negative emotions you experience.

Mood-tracking tools can be as simple as a daily journal for jotting down patterns in your mood changes. But mobile apps make mood-tracking even easier, offering interactive features, fun customization tools, and useful alerts right in the palm of your hand. These apps, many developed or recommended by mental health experts, address everything from stress and low moods to symptoms of bipolar disorders and PTSD. 

Here are the best mood tracker apps for iOS and Android devices.

4. MoodPath

Moodpath is a little different than Daylio as Daylio is more about self-improvement. This is one of the nice mood tracker apps to assess your psychological and emotional condition. On the basis of the screening period of 14-days each, a doctor’s letter is generated. It is like an assessment of your mental condition and you can show it to your therapist and even analyze yourself.

The details of your mood can be inserted into the app three times every day. You have to select your mood and then the emotion, then general experience like a good time with someone, relaxation, boredom, etc. Finally, you have the option to write what is in your mind. Writing about mood is like putting down the emotional baggage that is too heavy to carry alone inside the head.

5. MoodFlow

The Moodflow app offers another great way to log both your mood and your daily activities. This app works very similarly to Daylio in its setup and interface, and has similar features, too.

The app allows you to log your current emotions, add a journal entry, what you've been doing, your sleep, the weather, physical activity, and more. You can also add a daily photo of whatever you'd like to log what you're doing.

Moodflow does have a premium version, called Moodflow Plus, which offers detailed insights, factor insights, a geographical log of your life, and the option to back up your data to the cloud. This will cost you around $5 a month, but you can try the 5-day trial first to see what you think.

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Devices: iOS, Android

6. MoodKit

MoodKit offers over 200 CBT-based exercises and activities to help you notice distorted thoughts, foster more self-awareness, and take positive actions to improve your quality of life. You can use MoodKit either on its own or, as many people do, to complement your ongoing work with a psychotherapist.

Features like a personalized journal and exportable mood tracking charts round out the app experience. 

Price: $4.99

Devices: iOS

7. Sanvello: Anxiety and Depression

Sanvello is more than a mood tracker app. It can help you manage your stress, anxiety, or depression through its various tools. If your mind is unstable and you are not able to focus on tasks, you can explore the meditation library of Sanvello and find some relaxation.

When you begin the journey, you will be asked about your favorite theme like ‘Mountain Peak’, City Lights’, ‘Night Sky’ etc. Then you have to choose the motive(s) behind using this app. You can choose up to 3 and tools in the app will be presented to you accordingly.

On Sanvello, you can rate your mood in a circle as shown in the image. If you feel, stressed, depressed and anxious, there are audio lessons in the app that will surely help you. You will also find some articles written about mental health. But most of the features in this app are paid. This app also allows you to connect with people in chat groups and communities for discussion.

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Devices: iOS, Android

8. Daylio

The Daylio app is a great way to log not just your mood but the factors surrounding it.

The app tracks your overall daily mood, from rad to awful, and then asks you to log a number of elements surrounding your day. You can personalize these factors, but they can range from what you did, who you spent time with, how you ate, and how you slept.

You can also write a daily journal using the Daylio app, which allows you to log and look back on the things that have affected you on a daily basis. You can also check your mood log to get an overall idea of how you're feeling. The statistics feature of the app also lets you do this.

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Devices: iOS, Android

So, these were the best mood tracker apps that you should definitely try to fight with your anxiety, bipolar disorder, unipolar depression, etc.

It's easy to forget about that anxious hour we had yesterday, or that Monday where we felt great in the morning, and terrible for the rest of the day. These things can be confusing. But, these apps can help you log and understand your moods, and might even help you recognize your triggers or pick-me-ups.
