[prMac.com] Novosibirsk, Russian Federation - Inexika today is pleased to announce iMoodJournal 1.3 for iOS, an update to its top-rated app that helps users record, track, and analyze their moods over days, weeks, and months. Featuring a simple #hashtag system for recording specific emotions, medications, and sleep patterns, the app's Summary function graphically displays data from many entries over time revealing emotional cycles, trends, and triggers. iMoodJournal was rated in the Top 10 of all such apps for iOS and Android by the Healthline website.

Sure, you can create notes and recognize time-based feeling patterns on summary charts. But it one-ups some of the competing apps by offering reminders to record your dispositions at designated times and an interactive, animated mood chart. You can also hashtag your emotions, medication, and sleep, so that you can spot triggers and discover how your moods change over a longer period of time."

Whether they may have an affective disorder, such as depression, or not, most people have little real understanding of their moods and how they experience them over time. For many years, mental health professionals have recommended that clients/patients keep a mood journal, which has been shown to have two major benefits. First, by making entries several times each day, users develop a conscious awareness of their changing moods. The very act of noticing moods leads to greater acceptance and understanding of the ebb and flow of emotions in their lives. Second, analysis of the data in their journal may lead to the discovery of how their moods are influenced by specific thoughts, actions, medications, sleep habits, etc.
iMoodJournal makes keeping a mood journal easy. Users may conveniently make a journal entry whenever they wish during the day, rating their emotional well-being on a scale from 1 - 10. They can also use hashtags like #angry, #cheerful, or #surprised to record their feelings, and these entries can subsequently be displayed on Top Hashtags charts or filtered to show any emotion over time. The app creates an animated Mood chart as well as Summary charts.
The current update, iMoodJournal 1.3, offers several new features, including: the ability to edit the 1 - 10 mood scale, substituting custom wording for the default description of each level; a renewed action button for the mood record in history, with more convenient edit, delete, and sharing functions; the ability to edit date and time of the mood record, making it possible to create records in the past; support for iPhone 5; and an Android version of the app that allows users to migrate data between platforms via Dropbox backup and restore.
"Our mobile development team came up with an idea to create a simple app to track mood evaluations and associate the records with personal experiences in order to discover patterns, mood triggers, and observe mood changes in perspective," commented Roman Romenskiy of Inexika, Inc. "This beautiful app is the ultimate mood diary. It will help you discover the causes of your ups and downs, and get surprising insights into yourself!"
