Emotion Sense

What is Emotion Sense?

Emotion Sense is a platform for building applications that harness smartphone data to measure, monitor, and improve health behaviours. Our apps collect participant's self-reported moods, thoughts, and symptoms, while passively measuring their physical activity, sociability, and mobility via their device's sensors.

The Emotion Sense app for Android lets you explore how your mood relates to the data that your smartphone can invisibly capture as you carry it throughout the day. Download it today!
