Moodpath used to be the best mood tracker app but now all the really useful features (user inputted emotions, individual activities/skills used, ability to get data based on personalized inputs) is pay to play. And it’s $100 USD a year. That’s far too much for those most in need. There are dozens of good meditation apps and blogs, adding more of those features and taking away a core function of Moodpath was a junk capitalistic move. It’s particularly sad to see this change since Moodpath is one of the few mood trackers that isn’t affiliated with any one school of therapy (DBT, CBT, etc). When it was customizable, you could just enter the skills (or the first few letters, it autopopulated based on history) and easily track whatever moods/skills/activities you and your therapist wanted. And you could see how those things affected your moods. It had the ability to be as flexible and dynamic as personalized therapy. Now you can’t even track anxiety without paying.
A lot better each day. Seems like it is myself, it’s just going to be one day at a time!! Thank y’all from TX
I would say I’m usually not one for stuff like this. But it does a nice job of getting you to check in with yourself every day and that might be more important than the questions themselves (which are still very good) would recommend to a friend.
Positives: this is a fast, simple way to track your mood and see how your mental health can change over time. The questions take less than 30 seconds and the notifications help remind you. - The basic version is free -provides basic coping info -gives diagnostic suggestions and clinical recommendations -they ask about suicide every-so-often and have a reasonable protocol for querying and offering resources (and I presume a method for dealing with people who are actively suicidal). Negatives: the biggest drawback to me is that the questions asked appear random/do not appear to change in response to your answers (if it they do it is too subtle to be meaningful). It would be feasible and helpful for them to create an algorithm that tailors questioning once you have responded for a certain length of time. For example, if you consistently endorse low mood and depressive symptoms, asking those questions more frequently over others. If you never endorse things like post-traumatic stress, OCD, or psychosis it is not necessary to have these as part of the regular data collection (maybe every few months or so it would be reasonable to re-check). You could get more accurate data in symptoms and functioning if questions were tailored.
I love this app and it has helped me so much over the past few weeks. However, I’m only giving it 4 stars because there doesn't seem to be an option to transfer my weeks’ worth of data onto my new phone, which is really upsetting. If there was an option to transfer my data to my new phone so I wouldn’t have to start over, I would rate it 5 stars.
I’m really goddamn sick of answering one way on the daily question thingies and having an insight that directly opposes what I answered. I don’t know if my app is broken or something, but I’ll say I’ve not been agreeing with my family and friends in conversation but then an insight pops up saying that I indicated that I have been. It’s honestly starting to really bother me. I like using this to record my feelings but it’s just not accurate it seems.
This app is simply amazing i 100% recommended it
i have a lot of moodswings sometimes even multiple within one day and the app seems to get stuck on questions for different moodswings and won't ask me things that are relevant to what i'm experiencing in that particular moment. i could have felt that way recently but in the moment i'll be feeling entirely different so i'll answer differently and i feel its not giving me the most accurate results. other than that i really like this app and i find it helpful.
Downloaded around 4 different versions of apps similar to this and I loved this one the best! Great for checking in with yourself and be able to see big pictures. I really love this app and all it's graphics. Not just because I love the minty color but the simple yet warm pictures and interface.
