The latest version of Mood-Log is now available in the App Store and it has two big changes: iPad support and a Privacy Screen. In addition, there are many smaller changes as described below
Previous versions of Mood-Log were iPhone-only, which meant that when you ran it on an iPad, it did not take full advantage of the screen space. Mood-Log 2.0 is fully compatible, which means it uses the full screen, and it plays well with other applications. For example, you can use the iPad’s split-screen functionality to run Mood-Log alongside other applications. A large screen means that more information can be shown in the list view, so you’ll now see the Mood diagram (pie chart) and Factors charts for each of your entries.
On the larger screen of the iPad, you can see a lot more moods at a time. This can be helpful if you’re trying to figure out how you’re feeling and want to see more choices at once. Remember you can choose to view the Moods by category, alphabetically or randomly (by tapping the buttons on the bottom left of the screen), and you can choose to show fewer or more mood faces by sliding the slider down there.
Like the new iPad view, the iPhone’s list view also now shows Mood diagrams for each entry, right below each entry’s date, helping to give you a better understanding of how you were feeling then. While we’re on the topic of Mood diagrams, we now support showing the diagram as either a Pie chart or a Donut chart. So pick your preference!
And how do you pick your preference? By using the new Settings window. Look for the gear icon along the bottom of the screen. In Settings, you’ll see the option to switch between Pie and Donut charts, and you’ll also see the other big feature of Mood-Log 2.0: the Privacy Screen.
There may be times when someone is using your iPhone or iPad and you’d like to keep your Mood-Log journal entries private. The Privacy Screen allows you to cover the contents of Mood-Log until you type in a 4-digit code.
Whenever you go to another App or the Home Screen and then return to Mood-Log, the Privacy Screen will come up, preventing anyone else from viewing your journal entres. Note that you can also hide the Privacy Screen by typing your device’s Passcode (where it says “Enter Code or Tap Here”) so if someone else knows your passcode, they have the ability to see your Mood-Log entries. The Privacy Screen cannot completely prevent access to the data in Mood-Log, but it keeps it from being unintentionally visible, and helps ensure that only you or those you choose can see what you write in Mood-Log.
You activate the Privacy Screen by tapping on the gear icon at the bottom of the main list view to get to Settings. When you tap the switch in Settings, you will be asked to type in a 4-digit code, then type it again to verify that you typed it correctly. From then on, you will see the Privacy Screen any time you leave Mood-Log and come back (such as going to the Home screen and then tapping on Mood-Log). When the Privacy Screen comes up, type that same 4-digit code to dismiss the screen and get back into Mood-Log.
What if you forget your 4-digit code? Just in case you forget your code, you can do the following: When the Privacy Screen comes up, tap where it says “Enter Code or Tap Here”. Type in your device’s Passcode (or use Face ID or Touch ID if they’re enabled). Once in Mood-Log, tap on the gear icon to get to Settings. Tap the switch next to “Privacy Screen” and then type in any four-digit code. You’ll see “Try Again” if you didn’t match your original code. Do it again and it’ll say “Try Again” again. Do it a third time and you’ll see near the bottom of your screen “Disable with Passcode” (note: it may say “Disable with Face ID” or “Disable with Touch ID” depending on the capabilities of your device). Tap that text and you can use your device’s Passcode to disable Mood-Log’s Privacy Screen.
The text size now adjusts based on your device’s Settings (Settings->Display & Brightness->Text Size or Settings->General->Accessibility->Larger Text). Not all text is changed, but text in the main list view and your journal entries adjust based on what you’ve set for your device
In the Summary Screen, you can now cycle through each of the individual Factors (All, Mood, Stress, Energy, Mind, Health, Sleep). Just tap on “Factors” and then tap on “All” to begin cycling through the individual items
In the Summary Screen, “Pie” and “Bar” have been renamed to “Moods” and “Factors” to better describe what they’re displaying
