CARDIGAN, Wales and AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 11, 2022–
Today, people track everything: their heart rate, steps, weight, etc. But never what they feel. A person’s mood is rarely recorded and often forgotten, making it difficult to take charge of their mental well-being. Presentation Mood, a new mobile app launched today that lets users track their mood with just one tap a day. This deceptively simple yet innovative digital tool tracks a user’s daily mood and visualizes it in color.

Mood was invented by Gareth Dauncey, a Welsh architect specializing in low impact design and adaptive reuse of historic buildings. Dauncey created Mood after years of spreading too thin. Things hadn’t been going well for a while, so Dauncey began recording how he felt each day with a calendar and colored pens. Over the weeks and months, he began to gain a new perspective that helped him take charge of his mental well-being.
“What sets Mood apart is its simplicity,” Dauncey said. “A simple question – How are you feeling today? – and a beautifully simple way to visualize the answer can have a potentially life-altering impact. Seeing the bigger picture brings self-awareness that can help us decide how to take control. The goal is for Mood to become the standard way to track and visualize how you feel.
Trust is also taken seriously. Mood is 100% PRIVATE and a user’s data cannot be seen, shared, tracked or sold.
Users select a color and set a daily reminder. When prompted, users tap a swatch of that color to represent their mood for the day. The lighter the mood, the lighter the shadow. It only takes one click a day and is done without ever having to open the app. Each new entry adds to the picture or “mood stack” that shows the user how they are feeling over the weeks, months, and years.
Mood was designed and built in collaboration with the brand consultancy Red & Co.. The app has received endorsements from well-known public figures, including comedian and best-selling author Ruby Wax, who referenced Mood in her latest book, “A Mindfulness Guide for Survival”; and DO Lectures co-founder David Hieatt.
“Once in a blue moon, an app makes you wonder why no one has done this before,” Hieatt said. “Measuring your mood seems so obvious now that I’ve used the Mood app. Glory. It will help a lot of people measure how they’re really feeling. And that’s important. Because when we can measure it, we can manage it.
We track everything about us. But how we feel is rarely recorded and often forgotten, making it harder to manage our mental well-being. The Mood app lets you see how you’re feeling with just one tap a day, so you can see the big picture and take charge of your mental well-being.
Mood is 100% private and only accessible to you. We cannot see, share, track or sell your information. For every subscription, we donate a copy of Mood to an organization helping people improve their mental well-being. To visit https://moodapp.io/ to learn more.
