By Optimism Apps (Optimism Apps Pty Ltd)

Optimism is a mood charting app that helps you develop strategies for managing depression, bipolar or other mental health conditions.

*Note: a network connection is needed to use this app.*

The app helps you to:
- develop and monitor health strategies
- learn the “triggers” of a decline in your mental health
- recognize the early warning signs of a decline.

Detailed charts and reports are available within the app or by immediate email delivery. These form a feedback loop, providing concrete starting points for exploring things that are affecting your mental health.

The charts and reports can be invaluable for working with a health professional. They provide a detailed history that is fast and easy to review.


The Optimism app is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The advice of a qualified health professional should always be sought for questions regarding a medical condition.

Comments and Ratings for Optimism

Great potential. App is horrendous. (2.5.9)

Can't set values as it things you're going back a page. Loads each time. Resolution is horrendous on larger phones. Such a shame that this seems to have been left in 2011

Great idea, poor execution (2.5.9)

The idea behind the app is great and would work amazingly if there weren't so many annoying bugs that turn the user experience into pure frustration. Ironic given what the app is for...

Good idea - just did not work (2.5.9)

Just as well I didn't have to pay as being forced to provide an email address was a complete turn-off!

Very useful (0)

I find it extremely useful as i have to keep track of my moods for my doctors and being able to email them whats going on is brilliant so info is stored from 1 appointment to another

Great potential but loads of bugs (2.5.9)

Great potential as a mood tracking app, but loads of bugs. It is great that you can modify all the parameters to track whatever you like. Please fix the following bugs though: 1.the settings bar on the menu page sometimes randomly disappears when you have accessed one of the other pages and gone back to it. 2.I asked for a report – I have a weeks worth of data in the app now however the report only covered three days and was incomplete in that data. 3. Sometimes at the bottom line of each page not accessible, being just off the bottom of the screen and unable to scroll down to it.

Love/hate (2.5.9)

I have a definite love hate relationship with this app. I find it very useful for keeping track of my moods to tell my doctor but it also lacks a lot.

Latest version is disappointing (2.5.9)

Rather buggy since the latest IOS upgrade. Great pity, as it has huge potential. I used to turn to it every day and benefit from it. Now it just irritates me. I haven't given up on it. Yet. The Windows version continues excellent.

Great idea (2.5.9)

I was quite intrigued by the concept behind this app, and it could work so well but sadly it lacks proper compatibility with iOS7 and 8/newer devices and therefore is rather buggy. Great potential though.

It's the best mood recording app (2.5.8)

The best free app available. I think you can export the data too. So graphs are a part of this app.
