Kaliber10000, an independent design portal, have released an unusual piece of Mac software called Moodstats. The application lets you record and rate how your day has been in six different categories: mood, creativity, stress, plus three custom categories. You can also attach comments to these values to further illustrate why your moods are the way they are.
“After you’ve entered at least three days of data into the program, Moodstats then springs into action and begins to generate multi-colored graphs and statistics showing you exactly how your moods have been over the last week, month, two months, six months or year,” Michael Schmidt told MacCentral. “Think of it as a personal diary or journal, with the added bonus of the ability to synchronize your data with the global Moodstats server — and thereby invite others to see how your moods have been.”
You can also pull down data from other Moodstats users and compare yourself with the mood of others. If you’re concerned about privacy, Schmidt said that you can choose exactly how much data you want to share with others). A limited time demo is available. Registration for the product is US$15. To use Moodstats, you’ll need Mac OS 8.5 or later and 64MB of RAM.
“It was developed on Macs, runs best, and looks nicest on Macs, but as we don’t want to be seen as one-platform bigots, we’ve created a version for the PC, as well,” Schmidt said.
