10 best mood tracker apps for Android
Mood tracking is a potentially valuable tool for mental health. You can keep an eye on yourself over a long period of time to see new trends in your behavior. After all, a better understanding of your mood can help you manage your feelings better. There are various ways to do it, and people have done it for years with the help of journals or diaries. Your phone can help too. Here 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 functions primarily as a journal app but also has a function where you can journal your mood and feelings every day. The app also gives you a mental health grade, so you know if things are spiraling out of control and you might need some help with it.
There are also quotes, a community, and some other stuff. It works pretty well, and it’s especially good if you want to have a diary as well as a mood app. You do need a subscription to unlock all the features. We recommend pitching down on the yearly subscription as it is 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 once
DailyBean is another diary app with a strong mood element. It has the usual journaling stuff, but it has some neat tools to help you keep track of your mood over the long term. In particular, we like the calendar view shown in the screenshots above. You can see where your good and bad days were at a glance.
In terms of organizing your mood and feelings, DailyBean is definitely one of the better ones. There is a subscription to unlock some of the extra features, but we appreciate that there is also a pay-once option, even if it’s a little expensive.
Price: Free / Up to $3.99
Daylio is one of the most popular journal apps for Android. It also works very well as a mood app. In fact, it’s good at tracking just about anything if you’re creative. In any case, you can journal your mood, feelings, and even things like exercise and eating habits. It lets you pick a mood and then add various activities, so you can see what made you feel happy, angry, sad, etc.
It has quite a bit of polish with plenty of ways to customize the app and a lot of stuff to choose from. You can even export to CSV or PDF to share or backup your life. This one is also free via Google Play Pass if you use it.
Price: Free / $0.99 per month / $10.99 once
eMoods is one of the simpler mood tracker apps on the list. It boasts a straightforward UI 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 stats to show your average mood over a period of time. You can also add your own moods if the provided ones aren’t telling the whole story.
It works quite well. Like DailyBean, there is 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 tracker 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 further using the app’s hashtag system. We like that it strips out a lot of the extras to get to the point.
The backup and restore system is a bit old school, but otherwise, the app worked just fine in 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 style mood tracker app. It has many features and lets you track things like your mood, feelings, activities, symptoms (for folks with chronic illness), and more. It also lets you do things like add photos to preserve memories better. The process is simple enough, and you can view your mood changes over a more extended period of time.
It’s one of the more pricy 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 fun features. You can track your mood multiple times a day, which is good if you have mood swings. The app works offline with easy share 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 goes for a scant $0.99, so it’s also a good option for those on a budget.
Price: Free / $1.49
Pixels is a mood app that prides itself on its minimalist approach. It doesn’t have any flashy graphics, but it has enough to make the app feel modern. You can easily and quickly track your mood with little 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, a yearly overview of your mood changes, and some theming options. It’s also pretty cheap, and it’s a good option for folks on a budget.
Price: Free / $17-$46
Tochi is a reasonably decent mood tracker. It uses a cute little animal and colorful graphics to make the act of mood tracking a bit more comfortable. You can keep track of your mood multiple times a day and get various daily reminders if you need them. Some other features include stats on your mood entries, yearly overviews about your mood, and it can help you build new, hopefully, healthier habits.
This one has a premium price tag, but it’s one of the most expensive premium apps on the list. It does undercut a subscription over a few years, but it’s a bit steep upfront.
Price: Free / $9.99 per month / $59.99 per year
VOS calls itself a well-being app and includes mood tracking, sleep tracking, journaling, and mental health tracking. The app lets you monitor all of those things while also providing breathing exercises for anxiety attacks and even a chat function if you need to talk to someone. The features are a bit extreme, but it seems designed for folks who need a little more help than others, which is perfectly okay.
As such, it’s also the most expensive app on the list on a per-year subscription basis. There is a 7-day free trial, so you can try it first. Luckily, you get what you pay for, but folks who don’t need every bell and whistle can probably get by with a less expensive app.
