Moodswings is an iPhone application that lets the user add and track his mood through time and location. Anytime during the day, the user can enter his current state of mind with the choice of multiple emoticons - a reason for the current mood and a optional short description. He is then able to track his moodswings during time and location (yes, Moodswings automaticaly recognizes the geographic location of the update) through different types of views, eg. the Calendar View and the Map View. This gives the user an easy way of seeing when and where and for what reason he feels like he does. To make the saved moods as honest as possible Moodswings is completely anonymous although the feelings of other users can be viewed on a map (the only information that is beeing shown is age and gender). When using the map the current state of mind of larger areas can be overviewed and even individual locations (such as shops and restaurants) can be explored. How are people feeling at your favorite café? In a shallow digital world where internet is becoming less and less anonymous, Moodswings provides a welcomed sense of privacy. The language in which Moodswings is talking to the user is all written in a first person manner - making the experience even more private. Instead of asking 'How are you feeling today?', Moodswings asks you 'How do I feel today?' - the user IS the product.
