Journey vs. eMoods
When it comes to mood tracking apps, finding the right one is crucial. To get the most out of it, it has to be a good match for your needs. There are many trackers out there and they each do something a little different. In this post, we’re going to take a look at the app Journey and see what it has to offer for mood tracking.
On their website they describe themselves as, “…more than just a journal, or a diary; we’re your own motivational coach and happiness trainer. Let’s embark on a fabulous journey of self-improvement today.”. When users write a journal entry, they’re given the option to include their location, activity, mood, the weather, and attach a link in the form of a photo or an audio clip.
This additional information is stored with the day it was logged and is displayed in charts and graphs. The more data the user includes in their post, the more they’re able to see what possibly impacted their mood that day. Journal entries are time stamped, which allows users to get a good sense of what was on their mind and how they were feeling throughout the day. Users can also print, backup and export their data to either a PDF or DOCX file.
In addition to being a diary and journaling service, Journey offers a coaching program in journal prompts, personal development, self-discovery and creative inspiration.
Under these categories, Journey provides links to articles such as How to start and write a journal and 47 Journal Prompts for Self Discovery. Users are able to set reminders, search old journal entries, log places they’ve visited, sync their information to the cloud and link their phone’s health tracker.
