BBC: An app that tracks your mood

May 8, 2013

We have our phones with us all the time and increasingly they are smart phones. It is clear that smartphone use is driven by emotional needs and may have some effect on our emotional state:

Researchers at Cambridge University have developed an app that tries to track happiness by combining smartphone data with users’ perception of mood.
EmotionSense collects information about where users are, how noisy the environment is and whom they are communicating with.
It then combines this data with the user’s own report about mood.
The app is part of a project to see how mobile phones can be used to improve health and wellbeing.
