About this app

Track your mood automatically as Mindfully monitors your facial expressions and helps you to feel better. Learn about your emotions, understand your mood swings, discover what makes you happier.

This app opens a new era in wellbeing when feelings of sadness, loneliness, stress, and worry are all at record highs. Our emotion recognition technology made a huge scientific leap over the years, and now we make it available for everyone to improve their wellbeing. Mindfully was created because everyone deserves to be happy.

🌿 Who is Mindfully for?
Mindfully is for anyone who is interested in living a healthier life. It's also for anyone who enjoys trying out new technologies that make our lives more convenient. Mindfully uses path-breaking camera technologies to continuously measure your facial expressions and translates those into simple insights that help you to learn about your feelings. 

🌟 Will Mindfully make me happier?
Your overall wellbeing is dependent on many aspects of life: experts break wellbeing down into physical, emotional, mental & spiritual drivers. Mindfully aspires to become your mobile wellbeing assistant, but will not substitute social or physical activities which are essential to your wellness. Use Mindfully as a casual tool that is always switched on your device; be part of the emotional wellbeing journey that will bring trillions of smiles to our world. Mindfully is not a clinically validated mental health application: you should always consider how insights from the application may impact your wellbeing.

🚨 How does Mindfully protect my data?
Mindfully never records images or videos, your identity remains completely unknown when using the app. No one will see you through the camera, no 'facial recognition' activity is carried out. The app only recognizes your facial landmarks and turns those into mathematical representations of your mood (zeros and ones). Enjoy full control over the technology: decide when you are comfortable with monitoring your emotions or pause the monitoring activity any time.

*Track your facial expressions using the front camera of your device.
*Detect basic positive & negative emotions like smiles, surprise or confusion.
*Track your emotions from the background while using other apps, leading to insights about which apps make you happy or unhappy.
*View your mood trends across days, weeks or months using the Mood Calendar.
*Enhance your YouTube watch history with emotions to see which content makes you happiest.

- Without front-facing camera permission, Mindfully does not work because your facial landmarks cannot be monitored.
- Without app data usage permission, Mindfully does not work because emotion insights cannot be generated on application level.
- Accessibility permission can be optionally provided to unlock YouTube insights. Mindfully uses the permission to (i) understand which YouTube content you consumed while showing emotions, and (ii) for media measurement purposes (which might include generating aggregated reports for our potential clients based on such data). Accessibility services are not used for other purposes.

Your permissions can be simply revoked any time if you change your mind.

The solution origins from Realeyes, whose mission is to make technology more human. We support the development of Mindfully by sharing anonymous, aggregate attention trends with popular app partners and brands so they can make better products for users. The aggregated nature of the shared insights guarantees your privacy, while such partnerships also help to keep the application free forever.

We love hearing from users and getting their feedback! If you encounter any issues or have suggestions how to improve the app, please feel free to reach out to us at mindfully-feedbacks@realeyesit.com.

Download Mindfully and improve your digital wellbeing. Be happy, healthy and smile more!

It's very interesting and did work while i was using it. The concept is awesome and i hope to see more from these guys, BUT... this app fried my battery. It says it's "easy" on battery usage. I'd highly beg to differ. It took my phone from a full charge to 8 percent in around 4 and half hours, a full charge of my phone, under all day heavy use, can easily get me from the start to the end of my day and still have around 10 percent or so without a single charge[ 8+hours]. It's NOT easy on battery.

Hi Michael Martin! Thank you for the review, we will run additional tests on your device model. We experienced that some devices react worse in terms of battery - optimizations are being made to improve that. Until then, we would kindly ask you to use the possibility of pausing the measurement whenever you have no chance to charge the phone. Thanks

Can't actually comment on how helpful this app is as it takes time obviously to get used to your facial expressions etc. Couldn't do that unfortunately as it totally killed my battery... like having to charge phone three to four times daily. Not worth it to me for this reason if battery use was improved would definitely try again as really like the concept!

Hi anne marie! Thanks for your feedback. Mindfully runs the camera in the background to measure your emotions, which consumes the power of your device to some extent. If you wish to reduce the battery load, in the parental control settings you can select the top few apps you would like to measure, leading to a smoother experience. Mindfully team

Huge battery drainer even after switching the settings around to use the best battery saving option. Does not work if you are holding your phone horizontal. Does not work for people who have naturally frowning neutral expression. Would only register my time on YouTube and a few other apps I only opened for for a minute or two, yet it never registered my 4+ hours daily on my browser. I double check permissions on both apps and nothing can explain it. Great concept, poor execution.

Dear Cassandra Salas! Thanks for your feedback, some advices how to make your experience better: 1) Use Parental Control to limit battery usage (in-app settings). 2) Make sure not to hide the camera while measuring horizontally. 3) Emotion detection accuracy is getting some improvements soon 4) Which browsers were not added to the emotion report?
