Gratitude and Happiness Tracker is a free iPhone and iPad app that helps you to track happiness levels, and specifically three daily practices: expressing gratitude, staying in touch with friends, and doing acts of kindness.
The app is extremely basic and simple to use. It’s nothing fancy when it comes to looks, but it gets the job done. On the graph page, you will be able to see the graphing of your happiness and practices at a glance. You’ll be able to see the percent of your goal in a quick, easy-to-read red and green layout that can graph through the last six hours, the last six days, the last six weeks, or the last six months – giving you an idea of your happiness and gratitude over a selected period of time.
The track screen is where you actually track your levels. You select the practice, enter in whether or not you completed it, and if you like jot down a quick note. Hit save and it records your responses.
In the Gratitude and Happiness Tracker app you can share your daily statistics via email, although I don’t really see why this would be necessary. I think of it is more of a self-help app that is quite personal and I’m not so sure that the feature is needed.
If you want to keep your information private, you can set a passcode for the app, but unless you’re jotting down your deep, dark secrets, you may as well save yourself the extra step of logging into the app.
The app is just a basic way to keep track of your daily happiness level and encourage you to express gratitude, take time for friends, and commit one random act of kindness every day. Who knows? It could be a great app for moving closer to the person you aim to be!
