Mood tracking is a potentially valuable mental health tool. You can watch yourself for a long period of time to see new trends in your behavior. After all, a better understanding of your mood can help you better manage your feelings. There are several ways to do it, and people have been doing it for years using magazines or diaries. Your phone can also help. These are the best mood tracker apps for android.
The best mood tracker apps for Android
Price: Free / $0.99 per month / $3.49 per year
Chiku is a mix of a mood app and a journal app. It mainly functions as a diary app but also has a feature that allows you to record your mood and feelings every day. The app also gives you a mental health rating so you know if things are getting out of hand and you might need some help.
There are also quotes, a community and some other stuff. It works pretty well, and it’s especially good if you want to have both a journal and a mood app. You do need a subscription to unlock all features. We recommend getting an annual subscription as it costs about a quarter of the cost of a monthly subscription in the long run.
Price: Free / $1.99 per month / $8.99 per year / $19.99 one-time
DailyBean is another diary app with a strong mood element. It has the usual things for journaling, but it has some useful tools to help you keep track of your mood over the long term. We especially like the calendar view shown in the screenshots above. You can see at a glance where your good and bad days were.
When it comes to organizing your mood and feelings, DailyBean is definitely one of the better ones. There’s a subscription to unlock some of the extra features, but we appreciate that there’s also a one-time pay option, even if it’s a bit expensive.
Price: Free / up to $3.99
Daylio is one of the most popular diary apps for Android. It also works very well as a mood app. In fact, it’s good at following just about anything if you’re creative. In any case, you can write down your mood, feelings and even things like exercise and eating habits. It lets you pick a mood and then add different activities so you can see what made you feel happy, angry, sad, etc.
It has quite a bit of shine with tons of ways to customize the app and lots of things to choose from. You can even export to CSV or PDF to share or back up your life. It’s also free via Google Play Pass if you use it.
Price: Free / $0.99 per month / $10.99 one-time
eMoods is one of the simpler mood tracker apps on the list. It has a simple user interface with a notable lack of flashy features that some people might enjoy more. The app also has a high degree of customization (for this type of app), various mood tags, and statistics to show your average mood over a period of time. You can also add your own moods if the specified moods don’t tell the whole story.
It works pretty well. Like DailyBean, there’s a subscription option with a single purchase price if you want to go that route. We always appreciate it when apps do that.
iMoodJournal is another less complicated option for mood tracking apps. It does the basics, like tracking your mood with graphs and charts to show you the changes over a longer period of time. It uses a much simpler scale to ask if things are good or bad that day. You can elaborate on this further using the app’s hashtag system. We like that it takes away a lot of the extra to get to the point.
The backup and restore system is a bit old-fashioned, but otherwise the app worked fine during our testing. It costs $1.99 upfront with no additional in-app purchases or subscriptions.
Price: Free / $3.49 per month / $16.99 per 6 months
Moodflow is definitely an all-in-one mood tracking style app. It has many features and lets you track things like your mood, feelings, activities, symptoms (for people with chronic illness) and more. You can also do things with it, like add photos to better preserve memories. The process is simple enough and you can watch your mood swings over a longer period of time.
It’s one of the more expensive options on the list and one of the few without a single price tag. However, you get quite a few features with a slick UI and consistent updates.
Price: Free / $0.99
Moodtrack Social Diary is another simple mood tracker app with some nice features. You can track your mood several times a day, which is good if you have mood swings. The app works offline with easy sharing features, daily reminders, cross-platform support with your PC and more. As you can see in the screenshots, it’s not the prettiest app, but the functionality is definitely there.
The premium version is only $0.99, so it’s also a good option for those on a budget.
Price: Free / $1.49
Pixels is an atmosphere app that prides itself on its minimalist approach. It doesn’t have flashy graphics, but it has enough to make the app feel modern. You can easily and quickly track your mood with small blurbs so you can remember why you felt a certain way. It has a calendar where you can see your emotions over a longer period of time.
Some additional features include daily reminders, an annual summary of your mood swings, and some theme options. It’s also quite cheap, and it’s a good option for those on a budget.
Price: Free / $17-$46
Tochi is a pretty good mood tracker. It uses a cute little animal and colorful graphics to make mood tracking a little more comfortable. You can track your mood several times a day and receive different daily reminders if you need them. Some other features include statistics about your mood data, annual summaries about your mood and it can help you build new, hopefully healthier habits.
This one comes with a premium price tag, but it’s one of the most expensive premium apps on the list. It undermines a subscription in a few years, but it’s a bit steep up front.
Price: Free / $9.99 per month / $59.99 per year
Calling itself a wellness app, VOS includes mood tracking, sleep tracking, diaries and mental health tracking. The app lets you track all those things while also providing breathing exercises for anxiety attacks and even a chat feature if you need to talk to someone. The features are a bit extreme, but it seems designed for people who need a little more help than others, and that’s fine.
As such, it is also the most expensive app on the list based on a subscription per year. There is a 7-day free trial so you can try it first. Fortunately, you get what you pay for, but people who don’t need all the bells and whistles can probably get by with a cheaper app.
