Moodoscope ($0.99) by Nuage touch is a great little app to help you keep track of how you feel.
Whether we like them or not, emotions are a big part of who we are. But it is quite a difficult task to keep track of them daily, right? Life is such a blur most of the time that we probably don’t have time to reflect on why we feel the way we do at the end of the day. However, that’s a thing of the past now that Moodoscope is here.
Moodoscope is the latest app from development studio, Nuage touch. They've brought us some quality apps before, such as Snaptime and Task, and some games like Seq and Pile. So when I heard that they were making a new app, I was looking forward to it.
Moodoscope is quite possibly the simplest app they've come out with. It also features the same clean and whimsical interface that their other apps are known for, which I suppose is their style, just like Tapbots and their apps. Moodoscope follows the same color scheme and charming sounds as you interact with the app, which I find to be a pleasant experience.
The main screen features an emotion represented with a large smiley face, and a color to dictate it. You can swipe on the screen to navigate through the five emotions: ecstatic, happy, indifferent, unsure, and sad. Once you settle on an emotion, save it by tapping on the “+” button. This will bring up a text entry field for you to write down why you feel that way. Think of it as an emotion journal. When you save it, you can view it by tapping on the day in the monthly graph.
It’s pretty self-explanatory, but Moodoscope is a nice way to go back on the month and see how your emotions were. Why did you feel so down that day? Just tap on it to find out. What made you get high on life this other day? It’s all recorded in Moodoscope.
The app can also remind you daily at a certain time to record your mood, if you are the type that easily forgets things. You can also erase all data and start over.
I wish that there was a syncing method being used though. I would hate to have a bunch of my emotions recorded in the app, and then lose them all if I had to do a factory restore or was given a new device. Hopefully this can be added in the future. Also, what if someone is angry? There should be an emote for this as well, and maybe others.
Regardless, if you have ever wanted a way to be able to record your daily emotions and mull over them, then Moodoscope is a fantastic little app to do just that.
