I have a confession to make. For the past two months, I have been receiving a push notification at 9 PM that asks me for my mood. With a quick swipe, I scroll through the various faces and describe my mood for the day. The app also gives me the option to leave a quick comment or reason for my mood.

Now why would I do such a silly thing? Because the Mr Mood app allows me to view my moods over time and look through the notes to find out what makes me happy or sad. In addition, the new 2.0 version that was released last night brings with it new mood calculations for different time ranges. You can see if your “average mood” for the past month is higher than the past week and look through the comments to investigate.

The interface is extremely straight forward and you can set a reminder for any time of the day to receive a quick push notification that asks for your mood. It may sound crazy, but this app has actually helped me to become happier, understand what I need to do every day to stay smiling, and what needs to be gone from my daily life.

You can find Mr Mood on the App Store for just $0.99. It’s well worth it and receives an A+ from this happy guy. Check out the gallery below for some screenshots.
