App

Figure out what makes you happy

Moodnotes is a unique mood diary that helps you track your happiness over time to see if you can pinpoint what sort of things influence it. It’s currently Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK, and as a result Moodnotes is currently free worldwide!

The app is a collaboration with ustwo, the studio behind Monument Valley (hence the slick graphics,) and has been featured heavily by Apple in the past. Tracking your daily mood takes just seconds – it’s as simple as swiping to set a smiley face to match how you currently feel. You can also add notes to track the causes of mood changes. According to the developers it can help you to develop healthier thinking habits, avoid “traps” in your thinking, increase your self-awareness, and enhance your sense of well-being.

This is the first time the app has gone free since its launch almost two years ago. If you have even the slightest inkling it might help you, it’s worth picking up before the price increases again! Though the app is designed for iPhone, it’s still compatible with the iPad and also works great on an Apple Watch.

Note – this pricing is accurate at the time of publishing, but will revert to normal in the next few days. Act fast!
