In today's fast-paced and stressful world, people are constantly on the go. This busy lifestyle has negatively impacted the modern individual. In fact, according to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association, 73% of Americans reported that they regularly experience stress that affects their mental health.  We developed an iOS app called Mooed that creates a safe environment for people to not only connect with others but to also form a healthy relationship with themselves. This app includes a messager through which users can connect with one another, a public forum for advice, a button that randomly generates images that will lift their moods, and a bullet journal that stores their personal lives.

Society discourages people from speaking openly about their mental health. Often times, people are just too afraid to communicate.

We created Mooed so that people who, for example, are going through tough times can have a safe place to ask for advice and feel connected to both themselves and others like them.

Our group only had two weeks to learn Swift, a programming language for iOS. Since we were also still new to coding, being able to create even the most basic features in our app was a difficult process. Bugs in our code were persistent and kept us working for hours at a time.

Haven't you HERD? There's an app that will lift your MOOED!
