Why did I design and build a mood tracking app? — a UX case study
Mood tracking is a technique for improving mental health where people records their mood at set time intervals, to help identify patterns in how their mood varies. It’s a useful method for someone who wants to understand their behavior better. Together with my brother we design and built an MVP version of the app (available in the App Store and Google Play Store). We collected feedback from the users and now we’re working on improvements and further releases.
To design and build an MVP (MLP) of a mood tracking app for Apple and Android mobile devices.
